This week we recount a tale of betrayal, love, and possibly murder in the Deep South. A thoroughly modern woman, Sarah Ruth became one of the first female medical school graduates at UVA and seemed to have a bright future ahead of her. Then Ruth met the married Dr. John Preston Kennedy, soon realizing that while love is the sweetest thing . . . it can also be the deadliest. Join us as we meet: “The Highball Murderess.”
You can also find this episode on iTunes here (or search “A Short History” on your podcast app). Previously, I wrote about Sarah Ruth in “The Highball Murderess and The Doctor Who Wouldn’t Die” if you’d like to see more pictures.
There is a short silent video clip of the trial here, too.
