Overview

This book contains the story of the Emory murder case, thus making it a valuable reference work for all courtroom drama buffs. It portrays in a vivid manner the workings of a 1892 courtroom and shows at a glance that the courtrooms of yesteryear resemble the courtrooms of today. This case will remain always in the minds of the people of this small town, as one of the greatest criminal trials of this century.
"Early in the morning of November 3, 1892, one Gregory Shaw, a well known resident of the village of Pollicet, was found dead in the private study of his dwelling. The body was discovered by a servant named Field, who detected the odor of gas escaping from her employer's study, and, finding the door locked, summoned other members of the household to her assistance and forced an entrance to the room. Mr. Shaw was found lying face downward on the floor near his desk, and as all the gas jets were turned on and a deadly atmosphere filled the room, there was little question at the moment as to the cause of his demise. A hasty examination of the premises disclosed a heavy rug stuffed up the fireplace chimney, wet blotting paper in the key hole, and damp newspapers in the crevices of every door and window. In fact, there were all the indications of a deliberately planned suicide, and the Coroner, convinced that Mr. Shaw had taken his own life, and gave permission for the removal of the body without holding an autopsy. Had it not been for the presence of Dr. Walter MacLean, a friend and neighbor of the deceased, it is highly probable that no investigation would ever have been held, and the most singular crime which has ever come under my official notice would thus have escaped detection.
