EXTRA! A Quick Shot of Crime

When I’m researching a story, I always keep an eye out for interesting headlines to see if they lead me to interesting murder cases. I have written books about cases I stumble upon that way. The title of my Two-Dollar Terror “Man Beheaded; Dentist Shot” is the headline that drew my attention to that bizarre tale.

It is frustrating to find the occasional provocative headline and intriguing article but no follow-up or back story, not enough information to build a case file and compose a solid episode.

Still, some of them are too good not to share, so the occasional “EXTRA!” Edition shares one of these orphan newspaper clippings.
