Author(s): Margaret LaPlante
$23.99
DESCRIPTION
Oregon is known for its forests, lakes, and scenic beauty. But there is another side to Oregon.

The pages of this book contain stories of Oregon’s notorious past, including: murder victims dropped through a hole in a frozen lake; the Roseburg dentist who faked his own death, leaving behind a burnt, headless corpse; the notorious Oregon Jones who proved there was not a jail or a prison that could hold him or his brother; Oregon outlaw Harry Tracy, who was once a member of Butch Cassidy’s gang; murders scheduled to take place when the astrological stars aligned; the execution-style murder of two automobile executives at Crater Lake National Park; the West Point graduate and war hero who brutally murdered a pawnbroker; and Machine Gun Kelly’s ties to Medford.
