YESTERDAY’S NEWS --Tales of classic scandals, scoundrels and scourges told from historic newspapers in the golden age of yellow journalism...
AKA The Lipstick Killer And His Imaginary Accomplice
Hang onto your seats, folks, this one is another wild ride down psychopath lane. Folks in a nice Chicago neighborhood are scandalized when a string of murders go from fearsome to gruesome. Police get their man--or men, depending on how you look at it--almost by accident when the culprit is arrested for another crime. His crimes are heinous and involve a child, so tread carefully if your sensitive to that stuff, but I will tell you that the reporting isn’t overly graphic.
Culled from the historic pages of the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers of the era.
