The Murder Of Bessie Little
Episode 348 takes place in Dayton, Ohio, just up the Great Miami River from my hometown. I’m trying to come up with a name for this particular narrative trope, the murder of a woman by the man whose child she is carrying, consequently, the murder of an unborn child as well.
