Unearthed Dayton murders: a bayonet shootout, a blood thirsty Royal Albert and a 10-year-old Mead fed only water and beef tea

“What Had Happened Was” podcast host Amelia Robinson chatted with Woodland Cemetery’s Angie Hoschouer about three of the most shocking cases in Dayton’s history.

All are new to the cemetery’s History, Mystery, Murder and Mayhem Tour. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the tours are only virtual or self-guided this year.

Hoschouer explains the fate of Mary “Mamie” Hagerty who was gunned down by a jealous Albert “Roy” Fowler on Harshman Street, 10-year-old Eliza “Leila” Mead of the famous Mead family, who died after being fed only water and beef tea, and Officer Thomas J. McFadden, a Civil War veteran killed during a bayonet shootout at a Louisville house party.

The sight of a ghostly girl in the attic window of the Amber Rose Restaurant and Catering restaurant has caused fright for years. 😳
