The Ghastly Stockton Trunk Episode


Tales of classic scandals, scoundrels and scourges told from historic newspapers in the golden age of yellow journalism…

The Life, Loves, And Crimes Of Emma LeDoux

Episode 157 tells the scandalous tale of a California woman who loved not wisely but too often. It’s hard to say from the newspaper reports and court records how the corpse in the trunk actually met its demise, but Emma Le Doux would never escape the consequences, for a time becoming only the second woman in California to be sentenced to the noose.
