Re: Sweeten Murder - 1924 Ina, Illinois
Good to hear from you. Dad, Ray Sweetin, helped take care of and stayed with Jack during his last days. He was there to help Elsie with Jack.
I have heard the story many, many times, so it was not something in passing for him either since you could not escape noticing the tears in his eyes as he told the story to us to always remember Jack. The story as I read has taken on many twist. It is probably because it was written about in Life Magazine. Jack's real name was Wilford as I was told.
