Edward Edwards Dead at 77

The Louisville con man and serial killer Edward W. Edwards is dead. He passed away in prison in Columbus, Ohio two weeks ago and I somehow just now heard about it.

Edwards reportedly died of natural causes, not "prison justice", and it couldn't happen to a more deserving person, but nonetheless I wish he'd lived awhile longer so that police might have more opportunities to elicit more confessions out of his bloated hide. Phil Stanford, in his great book The Peyton-Allan Files, speculates on the possible cold case files still languishing out there that might be Ed's work.

Order Stanford's book here.
