Saving Mother From Gallows


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

The Baldwin Trunk Murder

Episode 188 takes us to Prohibition Era Los Angeles, where a galavanting doctor gets a snootful of juice, and then more than what he bargained for. Factor in a devoted teenage son who will do anything to protect his mother and a somewhat bewildered boyfriend to come up with another scandalous tale.
