Marianne Wesson -- "A Death at Crooked Creek"

Wednesday, Aug 28, 2013 7:30p
Boulder Book Store Boulder, CO

CU professor Wesson employs her expertise to great effect in A Death at Crooked Creek, a study of a crime that left its mark on the legal system. The 1879 murder of John Hillmon gained notoriety when his life insurance providers, suspicious of fraud, refused to pay his widow. The result: six trials and a Supreme Court ruling that led to a new exception to the hearsay rule, a “durable and influential” precedent embroiled in controversy.
