      That's a great find by Nina. Now if you know where the original newspaper copies are kept perhaps they might scan the page for you.

        That's a great find! Looks like he is wearing a formal suit? I can't read the text because it is too light so don't know where/why picture was taken.

            Thanks folks ( for Nina, who is nodded out at present).

            Rob...I'll contact the source and give it a shot. Good suggestion.

              Rob:

              Nina found the article in another repository...but it's the same quality.

              Dammit.

                I'm quite rusty in my memory of the Carrie Brown case. But I think she was in her mid-50s when she died, and the man who was suspected of being her killer was described as being half her age. By 1902, such a man would be in his late 30s or early 40s.

                Judging by the picture that Nina found, Ben Ali looked like he was much older than a 40 year old. (Of course, prison life can age anybody rather quickly.)

                Regardless, Ben Ali sure received a bum rap.

                  Joe;


                  She was born in 1834, Joe...either 56 or 57.

                      Hi all,


                      So, Nina Brown has located the photo of Ameer Ben Ali. This is the first time its been seen in over 118 years! Is this a sign that more information is still out there ?



                      Sincerely,


                      Mike
