Our Crime this summer is Who Killed Henry Ward.
On a cold, autumn night in the year 1906, a woman who identifies herself as ‘Anita Goodstory’ frantically details her discovery of a man’s body on the shoulder of a road at the edge of the city. Police wagons are dispatched immediately to the scene. The police arrive to find a body, clothed in heavy pants, pack boots, and a long thick buckskin coat. A car with front-end damage is idling nearby and there is a young man kneeling over the body, crying. The young man describes himself as Charles Ward and explains the man lying dead is his father, Henry Ward.
