A Mississippi Mystery

An old row boat floated down the Mississippi with a human skeleton in it. A negro fisherman discovered the water beaten craft with its cargo of bleached bones, those of Julie LeBlanc, who disappeared from her home in Jefferson County, Mo., six years ago.
Julie had many lovers, being very pretty and vivacious, some of them may have been attracted to the fact that her father, Francis LeBlanc, had held some title of nobility in France. One evening she dressed for a party in the neighborhood and went into the garden to get some flowers for her hair. She did not return and her parents supposed she had gone to the party, but in the morning continued absence alarmed them. She had not been at the social gathering. The woods for miles around were thoroughly searched and footprints of a man and girl were found leading to a creek where a boat had been kept. The boat was gone. One of her lovers was missing also, and another went away soon after. These two young men had been rivals for her favor. No trace of them has ever been discovered. The finding of her skeleton indicates that she was murdered. A conjecture is that the two lovers fought over her, and that she and one of them was killed by the young man who disappeared after the tragedy.

That sounded like an episode of One Step Beyond. I wonder where that row boat had been for six years ?

This is the first thing I thought of when I read that story. These are all supposed to be based on actual events. I don't know about that, but this show had the creepiest music for any television show.

Missouri's Giants


Portsmouth Herald New Hampshire November 20, 1900

Remains Of Giants

St. Louis, Nov. 19----C.W. Beehler, a farmer living near Montesano, Mo., 40 miles south of this city, has discovered the fossil remains of three enormous human beings who apparently existed in a prehistoric age. The bones were dug up at a depth of 40 feet, in a rock formation, which had preserved them probably many centuries. The skulls are much larger than those of present generation of men, and it is calculated that if the bodies were in the same proportion, these giants must have been 9 or 10 feet tall.
