The Police Reporter - Pgm 12

August 8th, 2010

Dropping in on "The Police Reporter" this week, we're up to program 12 in the series.  Listen to the puzzling 1861 London case of Major Murray who is seen bloodied leaving the apartment of George Roberts after pistol shots are heard.  Murray is accused of Roberts's murder - but is he guilty?

For a look at the real case, check out this issue of the Solicitor's Journal and Reporter from 1861 at Google Books.

The show, originally syndicated in the early or mid 1930s by Radio Release, Ltd., was digitized from an original shellac transcription pressed by Allied Recording in Hollywood, matrix number A-1073.
