‘Billy’ Brown’s Tragic Affair
Today’s episode is a tragic story of young love gone bad. Real bad. So bad, in fact, that ended up with the body of a young girl found floating in an up-state New York lake one summer day in 1906. The man she came there went missing, but not for long. Was it a simple accident as Chester Gillette would claim, or a brutal, cold-blooded murder? The answer may be in the tear-stained letters she wrote to him.
