In Cold Blood

Today in 1959 the Clutter family was murdered in Holcomb Kansas by Richard "Dick" Hickock and Perry Smith.

We remember this sad event because Truman Capote and Harper Lee went to Holcomb and interviewed anyone who would talk to them, resulting in Capote's exquisite In Cold Blood six years later. WMTN recommends it.
