The Belle In The Belfry

The Terrible Murders of Blanche Lamont and Minnie Williams

Episode 85 begins with a maniac leaving the mutilated bodies of young women lying around the Emanuel Baptist Church in San Francisco, 1895. Suspicion quickly falls on the young Sunday school superintendent, a strange young fellow who fancies himself something of the ladies man. The trial of Theodore Durrant turned out to be a long, drawn-out affair, but the intricate details of the case enchanted newspaper readers across the country.
