Default The Killings of Stanley Ketchel

By James Carlos Blake. Anyone read it? Just picked it up at Goodwill for ONE DOLLAR.




Obviously, disappointed its fiction but still a cool find.

Bringing that up, it reminds me of the great stanley ketchel, though he was taken too early by a man, made great accounts of himself. Sad he was ultimately taken by a man as he was having breakfast with the man's wife whenever pleased.

If I'm correct on this, the farmer that actually killed Stanley Ketchel did it because he walked into his own house only to find that Ketchel had been sleeping with his wife and that Stanley had been eyeing her for a bit, as he was known to be a huge womanizer. But who wasn't back in those days. What's amazing about the whole thing was that Stanley Ketchel, who was the reigning World Middleweight Champion at the time, had just fought Jack Johnson for Johnson's World Heavyweight Championship no more than two months before his killing at the hands of the (crazed?) farmer.

In actuality it was a robbery. The woman involved wasnt the farm laboror's wife, she was a woman that Dipley (the laboror) had met on the road very recently. It wasn't even Dipley's farm. They were both in on the robbery which is why she got a prison term as well.
