THE TRUE CRIME CASE THIS STORY IS BASED ON: In the rough and tumble world of 1890s New Jersey, William H. Dunham, owner of two notorious roadhouses, meets a violent end. Known for his ill temper and jealousy, Dunham’s life of debauchery and crime catches up with him on the night of December 23, 1891. After a drunken brawl with his wife, “Diamond Kate,” and their hostler, Patrick Phelan, Dunham is found shot dead in his own establishment. Despite numerous enemies and a tumultuous personal life, the investigation into Dunham’s murder stalls. The discovery of a clean, unfired revolver at the scene and various suspects, including rivals and jilted lovers, complicate the case. Multiple arrests and interrogations yield no conclusive answers, and the once-prominent roadhouse owner’s murder remains unsolved.
