Oklahoma's Most Notorious Cases Volume #2
An Ardmore millionaire killed by his jealous mistress, an iconic western gunslinger shot down in the street, and a prominent doctor whose valentine to his wife was said to be death--those are just some of the seven stories captured in Kent Frates's sequel to his acclaimed true crime collection Oklahoma s Most Notorious Cases. In Volume #2, the cases span the state from Seminole County to the small town of Geronimo, from the Oklahoma City metro to the city of Tulsa. They tell tales of outlaws and murderers and the dedicated law enforcement professionals who hunted them down. Many of the cases stir memories of bloody crimes, such as the Geronimo Bank murders and the daylight shooting of Tulsa businessman Roger Wheeler in the parking lot of Southern Hills Country Club. And as he has done in the past, the author explores not just the crimes committed, but also the trials and players involved, including the judges, prosecutors, defense lawyers, and juries that determined the outcome of each case. Many of the cases remain controversial. Some defendants convicted by Public Opinion went free, while others found guilty still plead their innocence. But then, that is what makes them so notorious. Includes, eight pages of historic photographs.
