Murder Most Horrid - in Fife

A talk on the murder of Michael Brown in Fife 101 years ago is to be made tomorrow (January 9th) at Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa, at 10.00am. The following is from the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa website:

Murder Most Foul - The Complete Story by Robert Brown
Using old newspaper reports and other sources Robert Brown will reconstruct the murder he discovered of his cousin, Michael "Mickey" Brown, of whom he spoke briefly at a Great Moments session in December 2008. He will describe the murder, the investigation, the manhunt, capture and trial of the murderer, and the eventual carrying out of the sentence passed upon him in a duly-constituted Scottish court. It may not be as exciting as an episode of CSI or NCIS, but it has lots of twists and turns. This talk will honour the 101st anniversary of the murder in Fife; a murder so foul that it captivated the attention of the people in Fife, Perth, and the Lothians for at least a year.
