The Killer in the Attic : And More Tales of Crime and Disaster from Cleveland's Past
by John Bellamy




Overview -

"Fascinating and yes entertaining ... often in a bizarre way that leaves the reader feeling guilty for being so entertained." -- Medina County Gazette

The fourth volume in John Stark Bellamy's classic Cleveland crime and disaster series features 26 more gruesome, horrible, tragic, and despicable--but true--tales, including:

  • Love-crazed Clark Hill, who warmed up his teenage girlfriend with an overdose of Spanish Fly in her milk shake;

  • The chilling Cuyahoga River scow disaster, in which 16 clinging, drowning men fought so desperately to stay afloat that they dragged each other to the dark bottom of the river;

  • Doomed workmen Patrick Toolis and Patrick Cleary, buried alive in the very concrete that became Cleveland's celebrated Terminal Tower;

  • Not-so-friendly Dorothy Kaplan, who deposited shards of glass in her neighbors' milk in hopes of helping slow the "noisy" couple down a bit;

  • Mafia legend Shondor Birns, whose high-profile life of crime came to an explosive end when he started up his Lincoln Continental one fine day;

And other detailed and compelling accounts of the unspeakable.
