A True Crime History of Michigan

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Oshtemo Branch
Community Room
Come face to face with the malefactors who stained the pages of Michigan history with blood spatter: The Killer Dentist, a Grand Rapids native who tried to poison his way into his wife’s inheritance. The Detroit Bluebeard, who prowled matrimonial ads for victims. The Michigan Borgia, who removed an entire branch of her family tree with Strychnine. The Lonely Hearts Killers, whose mail-order fraud business became felonious on the southwest side of Grand Rapids. Andre Kehoe, who engineered the bloodiest school day in history. Serial killers John Norman Collins and Coral Watts, whose crimes terrorized southeastern Michigan's co-eds. And others. Join crime historian and author Tobin T. Buhk as he unveils the truth behind some of Michigan’s most fiendish crimes.
