"The Betrayal or Pearl Bryan" author to discuss book at Kenton Co. Library


The tale of Pearl Bryan is one of those stories that is almost unbelievable. A young pregnant woman who was lured to her death in Fort Thomas in the 1890’s by the baby’s father and his accomplice. Tragically killed and beheaded, it was a story that captivated people far and wide. As this story has been told throughout the decades, the story has taken a life of its own. But what is true and what has been elaborated over the years?


On Tuesday, October 22 Larry Tippin, author of “The Betrayal of Pearl Bryan - Unraveling the Gilded Age Mystery That Captivated a Nation: True Crime” will present the findings of his research. Mr. Tippin scoured from thousands of pages of trial transcripts, depositions, contemporary newspaper accounts and other source documents to tell the real story of Pearl.


The program takes place at 7 pm at the Covington Branch of the Kenton County Public Library.

Mr. Tippin lives in Greencastle/Putnam County and said he started investigating the story because he is friends with the living descendants of her siblings still in Greencastle.
