This is Rick Geary s latest entry in his Treasury of XXth Century Murder graphic true crime series which I just love I d always heard of this case referred to as the minister and the choir girl and in fact there s a newish adult book out with that title which I now must read Geary has here summed up the New Jersey crime nicely with his droll black and white illustrations and succinct text A married minister was having an affair with one of his married choir girls One evening they re murdered during a tryst on a deserted country lane This is another one of those cases which resulted in no conclusive roof that any one individual committed the crime and one wishes that modern forensics had been around then 1922 Teens should love this graphic novel like series it may even spur them on to adult reading Highly recommended I enjoy the newsy feel of Mr Geary s work His drawings are clean and well rendered and the stories are sensational crimes What s not to like Interesting case I didn t know anything about it beyond a blurb about the trial I remember from a Time Life book of the 1920s that I read when I was in grade school *Too bad there was no real evidence recovered to make any sort of solid conclusions *bad there was no real evidence recovered to make any sort of solid conclusions On September 14th 1922 shots rang out near an old abandoned farm used by the New Brunswick locals as lovers lane No one went to investigate and it wasn t until two days later that the bodies of Edward Hall an Episcopal
"Priest And Eleanor Mills A "and Eleanor Mills a of the church choir were found They were staged side by side with their feet facing a crab apple tree A hat obscured Edward Hall s face so only his calling card ropped against his shoe gave a hint as to who the male victim was at first While both victims were shot the female multiple times besides having her hand Robot Programming: A Practical Guide to Behavior-Based Robotics placed on Edward Hall s thigh her throat was also slit from ear to ear it was later discovered that her tongue and surrounding organs had been removed as well Around them their love letters were scattered an apparent judgment from the killer on this adulterous couple Edward Hall was aillar of the community and a favorite with his lady Perfect Phrases for Writing Company Announcements: Hundreds of Ready-to-Use Phrases for Powerful Internal and External Communications parishioners though he ended up marrying spinster Frances Noel Stevens an older woman who happened to be an heir to the Johnson and Johnson fortune and lived with a mentally handicapped brother Yet most of the community knew of his affair with the talented chorister who herself was trapped in a loveless marriage The case soon became a media circus yet almost everything was badly handled like Edward Hall s calling card which was handed through the gathering crowd for scrutiny The crab apple tree was even denuded of branches by souvenir hunters But the crime baffled theolice who didn t even know who should investigate the bodies being found in the next county from where the victims lived But again and again the investigation lead back to Mrs Hall Could she with the help of her wealthy family have killed her husband just as he was ready to elope with his mistress For now the case remains unsolvedIt s a wonderful thing to discover a new author and realize you have their entire back catalog to work through I was lucky enough to stumble onto Rick Geary one dreary day at the library I wasn t feeling the best and I wasn t at my local branch but they had such a lovely display in their graphic novel section featuring several books I d been wanting to read from Alison Bechdel to the history of the Carter Family And there in between Fun Home and The Carter Family Don t Forget This Song was Adventures of Blanche by Rick Geary Needless to say I actually took the whole display home with me Geary s style seemed vaguely familiar but I was soon lost to the narrative Geary had taken his grandmother s old letters as a starting off Versailles point and then lovingly embellished them to be dramatic and of their time with murderers running rampant and famo.

Us ainters walking in and out of frame I uickly finished this slender volume and went to look up Geary online Having worked for both National Lampoon and MAD during my childhood back when I devoured those tomes it s no wonder his style was familiar to me with his Espenlaub people that all look like they have cat whiskers for jawbone definition He was aart of my Splendid Solution past and very soon he was to become aart of my resent when I realized that he had written oodles of true crime graphic novels Nine of which I devoured last year and I can t wait to finish the remaining fewHere s the thing about me I LOVE true crime I went through a eriod where all I watched was olice rocedural shows from Homicide Life on the Street to all the iterations of Law and Order and I especially worshiped Unsolved Mysteries Because I realized I don t really like true crime that happens now I like true crime that happened then I am not joking when I say that if I had a time machine I d just go back and see who all the famous killers and kidnappers were Who was Jack the Ripper What really happened to James Ellroy s mother that turned him into the writer he is today I don t just want I NEED to know When I was in undergrad I saw a very interesting one man How to Be Alone play about the kidnapping of the Lindbergh Baby With all the new speculation about what really happened and Lindbergh s Nazi leanings I decided that the first book I d check out in Geary s Treasury of XXth Century Murder would be The Lindbergh Child I couldn t have been happier This book this series combined two things I love true crime and art While manyeople might take issue with how simple his drawing style is nothing than line work there is a Racial Theories In Context place for ALL kinds of graphic novels in the world and this style suits theared down spare clean way he lays out the crime and methodically analyzes it Maps and cross sections of buildings make Geary the David Maccaulay of True Crime In each of Geary s books I ve read *he has told and shown the crime succinctly than any other author I ve ever read He has a gift for *has told and shown the crime succinctly than any other author I ve ever read He has a gift for and visualization that is remarkableBut all this could apply to any one of his books I icked up from The Borden Tragedy A Memoir of the Infamous Double Murder at Fall River Mass 1892 to The Murder of Abraham Lincoln Here I want to talk about his handling of the Hall Mills double murder that happened in the fall of 1922 This book just struck me so forcibly I can t uite understand why It s almost as if I have a weird connection to the crime It felt familiar somehow and yet I m sure I d never heard of this crime before While it lead to a media circus what I was drawn to was the ersonal nature of this story So many of the great unsolved crimes are serial killers who were never caught yet here it s just an adulterous couple at the center of the media firestorm Plus the way the crime was committed the removal of the organs that allowed Eleanor Mills to sing lus having her favorite song removed from every copy to sing lus having her favorite song removed from every copy every hymnal in the church I agree with the victim s daughter it sounds like a crime committed by a woman In fact that s one thing I really like about this series by Geary he shows that despite ublic opinion women are just as capable of committing really heinous crimes While this case was never solved and was very much muddied by an attention seeker known as the ig lady Edward Hall s wealthy wife and family were tried and found not guilty And yet the tale does have a sense of closure Because a woman had to have committed the crime and whether it was Frances Noel Stevens or another female arishioner whose advances were spurned by the riest you have a handle on the Gutsy Girls: Young Women Who Dare probability of who the culprit was Yes Frances could have used her money to walk away from a crime she committed she did act very oddly over the days following her husband s disappearance But unlike Jack the Ripper you.
