Sleazy Tricks

 Guys have been trying to get single young ladies into bed forever, but this is the most elaborate form of which I have ever heard.

New Salem, Ky. (1932)

01/19/1932: Two feuding families opened fire on each other in New Salem churchyard, after one member of one family arranged a sham wedding to a 17-year-old of the other family that “she thought was legally solemnized.”  Her family believed that he “wronged” her.  He was the only survivor of the gun battle, in which five men died.

Category: public

Suicide: no

Cause: revenge

Weapon: firearms[1]

[1] "Fifth Person Dies After Gun Battle In Kentucky Feud," Bismarck Tribune, Jan. 20, 1932, 1.

I suspect that he did more than "wrong" her.
