With an eye for bizarre, macabre detail, Keven McQueen tracks down seventeen true crimes and unsolved mysteries in this rap sheet of historic Hoosier homicides from Indiana's hardscrabble past. This grim collection of tales includes unimaginable incidents like the Indianapolis businessman whose car contained suspicious "hams" and the man who handed his new bride a drink of carbolic acid. It also reveals the tragedy of Gary's beautiful Arlene Draves, killed by her football player boyfriend, as well as a surprisingly comic courtroom revelation by Hammond's Hazel McNally that cleared her of all charges.
