Sorry for all those hoping to find something here on Casey Anthony… but this is from Dayton History.

If any of my friends want to go, please let me know! This sounds like an absolute hoot!

PS. Do people still say “hoot” anymore? I know I tried to revive it in college but don’t know if it went far…

Old Court Cases

Courtroom Drama

at the Old Courthouse

July 22 – 24,

Join Dayton History for an interactive courtroom drama at the Old Courthouse. This summer, the sensational 1896 Bessie Little murder case will be retried, with the verdict decided by you – the audience. After listening to evidence from both the prosecution and defense, spectators will be left to determine whether Bessie Little met death as a result of suicide – or murder. With one of Dayton’s most notorious court cases re-enacted, audience members will learn what law and order was like in the Gem City at the turn of the twentieth century.

Performances will be held on the following days:

Friday July 22, 7:30 pm

Saturday July 23, 7:30 pm

Sunday July 24, 3:00 pm

I got that email today, too. “Innocent or Guilty?” sounds like something I’d love to do. Let me know on FB if you plan to go! If I do, it will have to be a Saturday or Sunday.
