The Torch Singer And The Tobacco Heir

Scandal At Reynolda

Episode 338 weaves the tale of mystery surrounding the shocking death of the youngest son of the tobacco king R.J. Reynolds when he is found dead in the family’s palatial North Carolina home. Although the coroner immediately ruled it a suicide, other officials felt differently, and suspicion fell on the young man’s new bride and his best friend.

Culled from the historic pages of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the New York Daily News, and other newspapers of the era.
