Overview

Arizona has had its share of female criminals, but in the late 1920s and early 1930s, three Arizona women committed sensational crimes that attracted the attention of the nation.

Eva Dugan, the subject of the first book in this series, was the housekeeper of Tucson rancher A. J. Mathis, who disappeared in 1927. She was an imposing figure, and the Pima County sheriff suspected her of killing the rancher from the beginning.

While Eva was serving a sentence at the state prison in Florence, Arizona, for stealing Mathis’ car, his body was found. The sheriff and county attorney took the dead rancher’s skull to the prison to confront her. She professed her innocence and went on trial for murder. The end of her story was quite spectacular.

Very interesting that the case is written by all the newspaper items of the day. Definitely buying the other 2 installments of this series. Found some of the comments at the end of the articles by The Morgue Lady comical.
