Mid-Michigan's Dark Past
Join us as author Rod Sadler shares the stories that are the subjects of his first two books, which are sensational true crime stories with Mason ties.
His first book, To Hell I must Go, is a true story of a deranged woman who some might refer to as Michigan's own Lizzie Borden. Here is the synopsis:
Alfred Haney had suspected there was something peculiar about his young wife for a very long time. The conversations she had with no one in particular had become more and more frequent.
On a cool spring morning in 1897, he left his Williamston, Michigam home to earn his day's wage. When he returned, he discovered a macabre murder so bizarre that it shook an entire community to its core.
His second book, A Slayer Waits' depicts a typical double-murder as an act of desperation. An escaped convict slays an unsuspecting mid-Michigan farm couple in cold blood before continuing his escape.
Months later, the killer is re-captured and returned to a Michigan prison—thus beginning a long, painful saga of legal battle after battle. Copies of the books will be available for purchase.
The program will take place in the nearly 100-seat auditorium located in the
Mason History Museum located at 200 E Oak St (SE corner of E Oak and S Barnes) in Mason.
