    Young 'history detectives' track 1900s serial killer

    Isaiah Hite and his younger brother, Eli Hite, had no clue their investigation into the 1909 poisoning death of a teenager would lead to the discovery of a serial killer.

    The Hite brothers were among 10 youngsters ages 10 to 14 from Topeka and Lawrence taking part in the five-day History Detectives summer camp recently taught by history instructor Anne Hawkins at the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library.

    The suspected killer was Mary Troy, female and African American

    I know I'm a little old to qualify, but I'd love to go to this camp.

    I would have loved to go to a summer camp like this when I was that age.
