Deception, bigamy, jealousy and violence set the stage for a tragic death more than a century ago three miles outside of the north country village of Evans Mills. Was it murder? Was it an accident?

The details played out in the newspaper at the time, but what truly happened that morning would become muddied, at least enough that Gov. Roswell Flower himself would intervene.

Kelly Burdick, Christina Knott and Dennis O'Brien discuss.
