Shot Down: Capital Crimes of Casper (ISBN-13: 978-0931271526)

Read about Casper s wild, sometimes lurid, frontier days: the hanging, the beautiful and bad dance hall queen, the adulteries, murders, crimes of passion, a lynching, barroom brawls they exploded with the birth of the new town of Casper, Wyoming.

Meet the colorful characters and criminal elements from Casper s past. Notorious dance hall owner Lou Polk; Black Dogae Lee, Polk s partner in business and pleasure who cut off her nose and then vanished without a trace; Marshall Bill Hodge, who shot an unarmed cowboy; Dr. Joseph Benton, who tried to perform a postmortem on a still living patient and later died in a jailhouse fire set by his own hand; Joel Hurt, a Casper businessman who was acquitted after murdering young Billy Milne for having an affair with his wife; George Edwards who killed two men in unrelated incidents to protect his wife s virtue; and more.
