Simpson bloodbath or the Lizzie Borden horror—and then there are all the rest. The 1898 murder of George D. Saxton wasn’t one of the rest—it had everything: Saxton, a Social Register victim with a sordid love-life- Anna George, the femme fatale suspect from the gutter where he’d kicked her—and loads of sex, sensation and a slam-bang surprise ending. Not to mention the President of the United States—William A. McKinley—the corpse’s embarrassed brother-in-law. Inexplicably now forgotten, the Saxton slaying riveted a national audience from the opening shots on a Canton, Ohio street to the stunning end of a three-week legal combat with Anna’s life as the stake. Take an unforgettable ride on John Stark Bellamy II’s tragical history trip to turn-of-the-20th century America and the sensational killing that shocked America and brought scandal to the very doors of the White House.
