About the event

In the waning days of World War I, William K. Dean was brutally murdered, his body hog-tied and dumped in a rainwater cistern on his farm in the quiet town of Jaffrey, New Hampshire. Was the murderer his wife, suffering from dementia? Was it his best friend, a politically powerful judge? Or was it a former tenant, suspected by many of being a German spy? Kenneth M. Sheldon will read from Deep Water – Murder, Scandal and Intrigue in a New England Town,

the first in-depth examination into the murder and its aftermath in the town of Jaffrey. Free and open to the public.
