On February 27, 1952, one Kenneth Lee Maurer of Detroit made the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list, for the hatchet murder of his mother & sister.
He was apprehended in Miami on January 8, 1953, and sent back to Detroit for trial.
I can’t find any record of the trial. Was he convicted? (Seems likely, given his confession.) Executed? (Also likely, given the crime & the era.)
I’m fairly sure Mr. Maurer is no kin of mine – only a few Maurers left White County, and (so far as I know) none of them went as far as Detroit.
