Murder In Sylvania is a true history about a grisly murder that happened in a small, quiet community in northwestern Ohio back in 1857. Everything contained in this book was prepared from documents that existed at the time of the murder, and the actual names of people and places are used throughout. The reader will learn about all the gory details of this murder, confessions to other murders, the sentencing and the hanging of a man whose childhood set the stage for this hardened criminal. The murder, committed by Return Jonathan Meigs Ward, was the first case of capital execution in Lucas County, Ohio, and this brutal murder was the last of a series of slayings committed by this first presumed serial killer in the state of Ohio.
