Re: Sweeten Murder - 1924 Ina, Illinois
hi my mother was married to elses brother curtis. he was murdered in 1939 . my mom said they called her marie and my sisters always called her marie. i have always heard the story that she fed him the tomato soup and the preacher prayed for him. my mom said that she even sat with jack a time or two so marie could have a break.my sisters said that marie was really nice to them and that she was very loving to them. i never met her but my sister said that she had a daughter peggy also i know the one brother became a baseball player. mom said it was a total shock when this all happened . i dont know if this sheds any light on the subject but mom said that marie sued the magazine and won i dont know why. she did spend time in prison but very little mom said it was very fishy that she basically got away with murder!
