“Secrets of the Congdon Mansion” by Joe Kimball - April 10

Former Star Tribune reporter Joe Kimball, who has covered the case from the beginning, discusses the inside story of the infamous murder of Elisabeth Congdon, who was smothered in her bed in the 39room Glensheen Mansion. Her night nurse was beaten to death with a candlestick holder on the mansion’s grand stairway. Police immediately suspected Congdon’s adopted daughter and her new husband of the crime. The husband was convicted but the daughter, Marjorie Congdon Caldwell Hagen, was found not guilty on charges that she helped plan the murders. But that’s not the end of the story. Marjorie has been in the news--and in prison--in the years since the mansion murders. Bigamy charges, two arson convictions, charges of another murder, and the mysterious death of an elderly man she befriended in Arizona have kept her story alive. Register by April 5.
