The Police Reporter - Pgm 14

August 19th, 2010

The mid-1930s quarter hour "true crime" drama, "The Police Reporter" returns this week with what was then a fairly new, up to date story.  Program 14 concerns the 1930 murder of George Marshall by Bert (Albert) McDonald in Alaska, a crime solved by a few hairs under a microscope.  The announcer encourages listeners to write in if they enjoy the show.
