Unsolved Indiana: Murder Mysteries, Bizarre Deaths & Unexplained Disappearances (True Crime) (Paperback)
Enduring mysteries from the Hoosier State
Crime and tragedy have all too often disturbed the peace and stained the memory of Indiana's bucolic countryside. The small town of Dupont was thrust into the nation's spotlight in 1947 after a series of suspicious deaths were blamed on a well-known local housekeeper--suspected serial killer Lottie Tot Lockman. On a fall day in 1976, a Benton County farmer found an unusual package in his cornfield--a corpse. Dubbed The Box Lady of Benton County, her identity remains a mystery. On September 13, 1989, Joseph Bova was killed outside of his Merrillville home when a pipe bomb rigged to his truck's ignition exploded. With no witnesses, suspects, or motive, his case remains unsolved.
Author Autumn Bones explores some of Indiana's least-known unsolved cases.
