Blood on the Mitten

Infamous Michigan Murders 1700s to Present Volume 1

Rate this:
Before Michigan became a state, there were witch trials, scalp collectors, dirty sports, and a massacre of epic proportions. The lumber era that followed made Michigan as much of a wild, wild west as Deadwood. And Prohibition allowed a group of Detroit thugs to run roughshod over even the likes of Al Capone. There's more: a father who shoots his daughter and friends for being hippies, just as an eerily similar tale hits the silver screen; a widow whose love of dressing up leaves a trail of poisoned relatives across the Lower Peninsula; a lawless Upper Peninsula town that not only hangs two criminals without trial, but forces women to lie with the corpses; a murder that spread its victim's body parts along I-75 from Detroit to Pellston.

Interesting reading if you enjoy true crime and want the added interest of being those crimes that occurred in your home state. I did feel that many of the stories were kind of "cliff note" style - maybe to allow more stories to be included, or maybe due to a lack of available detail. Whatever the reason, I was left wanting more detail on many of the posts.
