The Capital Sin event is free and open to the public. It will be hosted by Charles Kelly, who will review select murder cases and the trials that happened in Montgomery County between 1877 and 1962.
The cases include a still-unsolved murder in West Norriton Township, a Plymouth Township murder-kidnapping that predates but is very similar to the Lindbergh kidnapping of 1932, a murder for hire in Upper Merion Township that sent a man to the gallows, and an Abington Township case that shocked the community because of the ages of those involved.
The focus of the talk will be on the persons and places, as well as the means and motives for the murders. Additionally, unexpected verdicts in some of these cases will be looked at.
The evening will start at 6:30 p.m. with a social gathering and light refreshments. The presentation will start at 7:00 p.m. It will last for around an hour before the floor is opened for questions.
