On Tuesday morning, December 4, 1888, John Keith and Ben Culberson, while rowing a boat on East Lake, found something floating on the water. A closer look horrified the boys, in that they had found a human body. This incident would set the city on a course that would change the city forever.
Come and hear Ann Gilbert give you the details of this horrible crime.
