          The first article is from the Atlanta Journal. The other two articles are from the Atlanta Georgian. Marie Gillard was the second Ripper victim, but she was the first to be found. The Journal and the Georgian give different accounts of how Marie was murdered. The Georgian states that she died due to a blow to the head, but the Journal states that she was strangled.

                Although these newspapers don't mention the name of the victim, she was named Ida Ferguson. Her boyfriend, Lucky Elliot was convicted of her murder.

                          It was (obviously) a good thing that Rutherford spoke up about the forced confession. No telling what would have happened to Lawton Brown.

                              You're right. People talk about police brutality now, but back then it was far worse. It was not unheard of for people to die in police custody. He could have ended up committing "suicide" while in police custody like Frank Dolezal, the suspect arrested for the Cleveland Torso Murders.

                                Dolezal, for the benefit of those who may not be aware, was murdered by people either in law enforcement or by someone at the jail that day with the blessings of the police department. The ligature marks on his neck in photos found by people who were casually thumbing through Cleveland Torso archives prove it. There's no two ways about it. The only good thing that came out of that is Martin O'Donnell, the police chief who interrogated Dolezal after other cops were finished smacking him around, died the next year.
