News-Current Report

BEAVERCREEK — Books & Co. will host authors and events in October at The Greene, 4453 Walnut St.

Local author Brian Forschner will introduce his true crime novel, Cold Serial: The Jack the Strangler Murders 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12.

Between 1900 and 1909, five girls were raped and strangled in the Dayton, Ohio area. These crimes were never solved. Forschner became intrigued with the case after discovering that a relative of his had been one of the victims. Now he takes us into the past, using information he has found through careful research to reconstruct the five crime scenes and theorizes who the murderer was in all the cases. In the era in which these crimes occurred, there were not the tools of investigation we have today, so the crimes were never solved, but Forschner gives us strong clues as to whom the murderer was. It’s a fascinating , revealing story.
