From the pages of 19th-century newspapers comes a rogue's gallery of homicidal maniacs, from Joseph Lapage, who decapitated his young victim in Pembroke, to George Abbott, whose career of violence led him to the hangman's noose, and Franklin B. Evans, whose murderous exploits only ended when he victimized his own family. Largely forgotten today, these villains commanded the attention of our ancestors in the days before television and radio.
