I’m sorry this is a little late, I had some recording issues. But everything is fixed now and I guess it’s better late than never. 

In Troy, Ohio on a cold February day in 1926, a man comes home and discovers his wife’s dead body in their bathtub. As the police from 3 different agencies investigate to find out what happened to this young wife, the situation is sensationalized in the newspapers. As the news spreads the town is overrun with reporters and travelers looking for a souvenir. Part 1 will tell the story of Mrs. Nesbitt’s body being found and what the police did to investigate the crime.
