Quinn was/is also suspected of killing four other people, including: Ruth Laughlin and Paul Leslie Odell on August 30, 1929; Mamie Houlehan on January 10, 1931, and Lucille Price on January 25, 1931. In the author’s opinion, it’s doubtful Quinn murdered Price, which occurred in Newton, Kansas, because it is only 100 miles north of where he murdered the Griffith sisters. It’s too close the epicenter of the crime, and the manhunt which was underway. Opinion: Mamie Houlehan, probably. Odell and Laughlin, possibly.

I want to give a special thanks to Tess Keehn, daughter of “Little Helen” and granddaughter of Helen Harris Weaver, for her insight into the family and invaluable assistance  both personally and through her own book, that contributed to chapter seven, “A Soft Touch, 1955.” If you would like to learn more about her, her early struggles to find her way in life, what her grandmother’s murder meant to her and her family, as well as a fascinating history of the Harris family, I encourage you to purchase a copy of her book, which is available through Google Play, Amazon, and her publisher, Balboa Press.  —- Jason Lucky Morrow, author of Famous Crimes the World Forgot, Volume II.

Book Description: Alchemical Inheritance, by Tess Keehn, M.S.

Born into the aftermath of a family tragedy, author Tess Keehn responded as a young adult by dedicating herself to finding emotional balance and wellness.

Alchemical Inheritance presents the honest story of Keehn’s family history and of her own life experiences, describing how her journey through darkness eventually empowered her to manifest a life of peace, joy, and fulfillment. She tells the tale of her grandmother’s mysterious murder, her mother’s descent into mental illness, the dissolution of her family’s substantial wealth, and the near collapse of her own life under the weight of her family’s secrets and financial ruin.

Keehn’s own inheritance moved through the extremes of substance abuse and despair until a spiritual awakening in her twenties called her to tap the power of a myriad of resources and forge her own path to healing and redemption. Through her story, she hopes others may find a revised road map for their lives that moves them forward with clarity, excitement, and inspiration.

“In this masterfully written memoir … Keehn combines spirituality, mental-health practices, and an ever-growing love of herself that leads her readers on a path to a deep and sustaining healing.”
–Kathari Findlen, author, Meeting in the Space Between

One Last Thing…

Thank you for reading Famous Crimes the World Forgot, Volume II. It means a lot to me that you selected this book. If you enjoyed these eight stories and found them interesting, I would be truly grateful if you would take a minute or two and write a review on Amazon.com. Your support really does make a difference. As an independent researcher and writer, notification through my blog, Facebook page, and word of mouth are my only sources of advertising. I don’t have a publicist, literary agent, manager, or marketing team.

In general, I believe the author’s work should speak for itself, not the author. This can only be done through reviews by readers like you. With your review, and sharing this book with your friends, I hope to continue my work of introducing new readers to these old, forgotten crime stories.

Sincerely,

Jason Lucky Morrow

Book Description:

Famous Crimes the World Forgot Volume IITired of Reading About the Same Crimes and Criminals Over and Over?
Are You Looking for Something Completely New and Different?
Ten Extraordinary True Crimes You Never Knew About With 41 Images
Famous Crimes the World Forgot Volume II uncovers more amazing true crimes that exploded into the national news, shocking Americans from coast to coast—crimes that were eventually forgotten—until now. Each one of these stories transports you back to the time they happened, propels you through all the suspense-filled developments, and explores each one with an in-depth look into the actions of humans so evil, it’s hard to believe they were real. They include: a serial poisoner who laughed when thought he got away with murdering a brother and sister, but cried when he was arrested; a woman with a history of being robbed by two men until the third time it happened when they killed her husband, or so she said; a mail-order bride lured to her death 3,000 miles away by a man with a wife and five children; a serial-rapist and possible serial-killer who murdered two sisters on their way to church; a five-time loser turned drifter who gunned down four men for $40 inside a hermit’s shack; an escaped convict turned serial-killer with a taste for red-heads; the mysterious car bomb murder of a wealthy Texas socialite which churned up a cast of sordid characters who captivated an audience for what was America’s first live-televised murder trial; and Milwaukee’s first serial-killer who stabbed young girls with a seven-inch stiletto.

These astonishing true crimes will leave you wondering how they could have been ignored for so long.
