    "Ruth Iverson Kozan was eight years old when her neighbors were brutally killed and her friend’s father was accused of their murders."

    Also from that article:

    It was also troubling that four years earlier, just two miles away, a farmer named Louis Minske was beaten to death with an ox yoke.

    “They never found out who killed him either,” Kozan said.

    In her written account of the events of 1929, she wrote, “The murderers were never found. Many years later, however, John Ruehl confessed, as he lay dying, to Sheriff Don Eustice, that he had committed the murders!”
