Yes, I am looking for any information on my great grandfather Laurence Patrick Murphy who was murdered in Mapleton on January 1925. I believe he was murdered by a man named Merle Champin. Any information on the case or family members would be helpfully. Thanks

Your inquiry is somewhat dated and you may be aware of the headline writeup in the Mapleton Press issue of Jan. 29, 1925, and a short followup piece in the Feb. 5 issue, but if not the Press is digitized and may be viewed on line at the following address.

The killer's name was Chapin not Champin.
