UNSOLVED: A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring one of history’s most baffling murder mysteries.
The Napavine Hatchet Murder
When I started in on Episode 371, I thought it was going to be a salacious story of a seedy sexual situation gone awry. What turned out to be more interesting is the subplot of the district attorney forced to bring a half-baked case to trial in order to avoid the appearance of his own complicity in a rumored conspiracy.
Culled from the historic pages of the Tacoma Times, the Oregon Daily Journal, and other newspapers of the era.
