Monster On The Run

0 Episode Rating

AN EYE FOR AN EYE — A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the Death Penalty…

The Ghastly Kidnapping And Murder Of Marion Parker

Episode 415 relates one of the most difficult crimes we’ve yet to tell, a terrible kidnapping and brutal murder of 12-year-old girl by a smiling, charming monster. No other word for William Edward Hickman. The details of the crime were so disturbing that the newspapers could not report on them, but even the broad outline as presented will give you chills.
Culled from the historic pages of the Los Angeles Times and other newspapers of the era.

If this story has aroused your indignation and it’s still crying out for justice, check out our supplemental editions in the Safe House Salon at www.patreon.com/truecrimehistorian. The first is a report from the great pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs, who covered the trial for the Los Angeles Examiner, and the other a first-person report from Hickman’s execution by a reporter from the San Francisco Daily News.
