This episode tells the story of Mary Chamberlain. a young teacher in Beverly, Kansas, in 1911, who was dragged from a buggy on an isolated road in the woods, stripped naked, and covered with hot tar by a gang of five men, while several others stood nearby, to “watch the fun”.  The episode also tells the aftermath of the incident, including the arrest and trial of the assailants.

The second part of episode will feature the latest installment of our popular segment Police Blotter and Court News, with short tales of small time crime from 1885.
