Encore: The Laurel Creek Murders

Today, we have an encore episode for you as we travel to the little town of Hurley, Virginia. There, in 1909, a widow sold the timber rights to her 150 acres of land for a tidy sum, making her a target for anyone wanting to take that money for himself. On September 21 of that year, she and her daughter’s family were murdered in cold blood in the daughter’s house along Laurel Creek, setting off a manhunt for the murderer. On today’s podcast, Steve and Rod tell the story of the Laurel Creek murders.
