Old man Tatersly came up dead. Word had it at the time that the Widow Spudsley did it. They dated for 5 years and he would never share his taters. So she allegedly stabbed him to death with her potato peeler and buried him in a potato hill.

It might have been in the 70's or late '60. The wife was murdered in her house. Go to court house in basement and look up the archives.

Yes, her name was Solomon. It was 1966. She lived about 1 mile south of Calvert Drive Inn on Hwy 95. The house in gone now. Her husband was out of town in Missouri that day. She was on the phone talking to a friend. A knock at the front door....she answered it while still on the phone and she was shot with a shotgun. Dead. Yes, several in the county had a good idea who did it. Never proven. Suspect has since died back in the late 80's.

what about that one that was somewhere around calvert several years ago...williams, maybe? the guy that went around robbing and killing a handful of people around that time was blamed and convicted, i think. Seems i remember they said he confessed to all his other crimes but insisted he had nothing to do with that one woman's death. Heard her husband may have left work for a while that day, unaccounted for.

Was there ever any motive? I was told she was a very nice lady, no apparent reason at all.
