Pittsburgh’s Feely Murder Mystery

Put on your thinking caps for this one, friends. It’s about as cold a case as you can get, about 80 years cold, and officials at the time couldn’t even agree on what exactly happened in the back room of that family home, whether it was a murder or a murder/suicide. I don’t expect we can solve it from a few newspaper clippings, but there does seem to be some irregularities. Certainly, some political undertones. I dunno. What do you think?
