Page and Plant cover Lead Belly Gallows pole The original source for Led Zeppelin's "Gallows Pole" was Leadbelly's "Gallis Pole." "Gallows Pole" on Led Zeppelin III is listed as "Traditional." On some of Leadbelly's recordings, however, songwriting credit is given to Leadbelly and John and Alan Lomax. Alan Lomax, along with his father John, were instrumental in popularizing a wide range of American folk music. Beginning in the 1930s, Alan Lomax produced a great volume of field recordings of folk musicians, focusing in particular on the American South. John and Alan Lomax first recorded Leadbelly while he was in prison and they brought him to national attention. Leadbelly was a master of many styles of music, wrote many songs and adapted many tunes that he had heard over the years. Jimmy Page said that he had heard a version of this song by an obscure folk artist named Fred Gerlach. Where Leadbelly and Fred Gerlach had each played "Gallis Pole" in a 12-string guitar, Led Zeppelin's recording features John Paul Jones on Mandolin and Jimmy Page on Banjo. Credit where credit is due... all info here is from turnmeondeadman.net and the vid is from the Page Plant No Quarter concert

Steven Truscott Case 1959 Canada's most famous criminal case of the 20th century revolved around the rape and murder of 12-year-old Lynne Harper near Clinton, Ontario in 1959. A schoolmate, 14-year-old Steven Truscott, stood trial, was convicted of murder, and sentenced to hang. The sentence was eventually reduced to life imprisonment. With some doubts lingering over the accuracy of Truscott's conviction, and sympathy because of his age, Truscott was eventually paroled from prison in 1969. He lived for many years in Guelph, Ontario under an assumed name. In 2000 he shed his alias and began to publicly clamor for a new trial. Truscott's conviction was eventually overturned in 2007 because of what the Ontario Court of Appeals perceived as "a miscarriage of justice," though the court did not formally declare him innocent. Truscott was also awarded a $6.5 million settlement by the Province of Ontario. Is Truscott a murderer? Polls generally show Canadians think he is innocent by a 3:1 ratio. However the Harper family, usually forgotten by the media and the Truscott advocates, is convinced of Truscott's guilt. The victim's older brother has publicly called the payment to Truscott a travesty. The news of it seriously affected the health of Lynne's aged father. And little Lynne Harper remains 12 years old forever...

Hogans Heroes Flaming Arrow My favorite episode of Hogan's Heroes: Drums Along The Dusseldorf! In this episode the prisoners attempt to use Sgt. Carter's archery skills to sabotage a passing German truck carrying jet fuel. Here's the climactic 6.5 minutes of it. Lots of laughs. It first aired on March 30, 1968.

The real Barbara Mackle police photo This is the real Barbara Mackle (police photo) In 1968, while a student at Emory College, Barbara Jane Mackle was kidnapped and buried alive in a plywood box containing food, water, and pipes leading to the outside air. The kidnappers demanded $500,000 in ransom, which Mackle's parents paid. She was rescued three and a half days later, and her captors were arrested and sent to prison. Her story was first told in the TV movie The Longest Night (1972) (TV). She wrote her own account in 1971, and this book served as the basis for another TV movie: 83 Hours 'Til Dawn (1990) (TV).

Marion Parker Murder - 1927 Fair warning: This story is unsettling. One of the most brutal crimes in American history was the kidnapping and murder of 12-year-old schoolgirl Marion Parker. On Thursday, December 15, 1927 a young man appeared at Mount Vernon Junior High School in Los Angeles claiming to be an associate of Perry Parker, a prominent local banker. The man coolly told the school's registrar that the banker had been seriously injured in a car accident and had requested to speak to his daughter. There were actually twin Parker sisters enrolled in the school--Marion and Marjorie. By chance the registrar fetched Marion who rode off with the man. He was later identified as 19-year-old William Edward Hickman. The Parker family became alarmed when Marion did not return from school. Shortly thereafter they received a ransom note and phone calls from the kidnapper asking for $1500 in gold certificates in exchange for Marion's safe return. One attempt by Marion's father to pay the ransom was thwarted when Hickman spotted police detectives lurking nearby. Another meeting time was secretly arranged by Hickman and Marion's father on December 17 where the money was given to a man in a parked car. Perry Parker saw his daughter wrapped in a blanket slumped in the back seat with her eyes open. At gunpoint the ransom was paid and the driver pushed the girl onto the street and drove away. Marion's father was horrified to find that his daughter was dead. Her eyelids had been sewn open to give the illusion that she was alive. Worse, her head had been severed, her arms and legs had been cut off and she had been disemboweled. (The missing limbs were found the next day in a city park.) The ghastly crime spawned the largest manhunt in southern California's history, one that included 20,000 volunteers. A reward of $100,000 was offered for the capture of the culprit. Several clues, including the discovery of the stolen car used on the night of the money exchange, led to Hickman being named as the key suspect. He was eventually arrested in Echo, OR after spending some of the gold certificates there. Hickman had been a former employee at Parker's bank and had been fired for embezzlement in a forged check scam. He served prison time for the crime. The fingerprint records from the embezzlement charge were used to match those found on the stolen car from the kidnapping. Hickman willingly told police in graphic detail that he had decided to kill Marion because she had discovered his name. She had only been dead about 12 hours before the money exchange. Hickman said he had choked her with a towel to make her unconscious and then began his dismemberment while she was still alive. Hickman--who said he intended to use the $1500 to pay his tuition to attend a bible college!--hoped to avoid the gallows by claiming insanity. He was one of the first defendants in California to try that ploy after it had become an acceptable legal defense. It failed when a fellow prisoner claimed Hickman had asked his advice on how to appear crazy. A jury rejected Hickman's insanity defense in February 1928. Hickman was executed at San Quentin Prison eight months later on October 19. His hand-written confession is on display at the Los Angeles Police Museum. Marion Parker's ghost is said to occupy her former house.

The Crucified Soldier One enduring controversy about the First World War is a grisly tale of a Canadian soldier who was allegedly found crucified to a wall of a barn in Belgium. The unsettling incident is said to have happened following the terrible Second Battle of Ypres in April 1915 where the Germans first used poison gas. Rumors abounded that the enraged Canadians were not too interested in capturing German prisoners. According to the story, the Germans retaliated by crucifying a random Canadian prisoner. According to reports form three Canadian soldiers, they witnessed a comrade, Sgt. Harry Band, impaled on a wall by five German bayonets. The tale, which spread quickly around the world through newspaper stories, was dismissed by many people as wartime propaganda. Depicting this event is this 32-inch bronze scultpure titled Canada's Golgotha. It was removed from a post-war art exhibit after formal complaints by the Germans who insisted the story was bogus. As late as 1989 the sculpture was hidden from public view. In 2002, a war researcher uncovered letters from supposed witnesses to the event that were written to Band's sister. These letters attest that the awful story was true. Band's body was never recovered. He is still listed among the missing in action.
