Presented by Shannon Butler, Historian, Poughkeepsie Public Library District.

Using court records, early newspaper articles, and pamphlets, Shannon Butler discusses Dutchess County’s most gruesome murders from the 18th through the early 20th centuries—including one of the first female serial killers and the gruesome murder of a Poughkeepsie businessman. Ms. Butler, the author of two books and numerous articles, has worked in local history for sixteen years and is the creator and cohost of a historical podcast entitled “All My Favorite People Are Dead.”
