Viewing "Murder Most Foul!" -- The Lynching of John W. Kelliher (1886).
John W. Kelliher was taken from his jail cell in Detroit, Minnesota, and lynched on the night of June 23, 1886, by a mob outraged by his murder of John Convay, the village marshall. A long, eye-witness account of the events was published in the "Detroit Record" on June 25. The lynching was also the subject of editorials in Minneapolis and St. Paul newspapers.
