Summary
In this fictionalized version of events, Griff recounts his story in relation to crime committed on Elfrieda Knaak. On October 29,1928, in the quaint Chicago suburb of Lake Bluff, 30-year-old Elfrieda Knaak was found naked, with burns over more than half of her body, and propped up next to a furnace in the basement of the Village Hall. The events that took place in the following two weeks turned the idyllic village of Lake Bluff upside down as local and county law enforcement officials scrambled to determine what took place and who was responsible. Ninety years later, the questions are still unanswered-- How did she get there? By what means was she so badly burned? Who could have perpetrated such a heinous crime? This baffling story became a nation-wide media sensation, thrusting the small town of Lake Bluff and its beloved Village Hall onto the front pages of newspapers from New York to Los Angeles. -- Amazon
