The Tragic Leggit Ordeal
Episode 425 tells of the end of the road for Walter Ligget, who made his fame as a journalist who supported unions, exposed the criminal element, crusaded against graft and corruption, and dared to speak truth to power, so the powerful (whoever they may be) try and try again to get their revenge.
Culled from the historic pages of the Minneapolis Star and other newspapers of the era.
