Unsolved Crime – Murder of Ken Rex McEllroy
Another must-read for aficionados of unsolved cases: Harry N. MacLean’s Edgar-winning true crime tale In Broad Daylight: A Murder in Skidmore. It weaves the incredible tale of a Missouri town rising up to take down the man who was regarded as the local bully, a violent man who committed crime after crime (including child molestation) but always escaping serious jail time. Ken Rex McElroy’s murder took place (as the MacLean book’s title suggests) in the middle of the day, in the middle of town. Like Wild West vigilantes, MacLean suggests that those who were involved have upheld a code of secrecy that’s been kept for over 30 years.
