Garden City Cemetery

Besides liking to skulk around cemeteries, the Garden City Cemetery has special interest for me.  Just down the road is Holcomb , Kansas.  This was the scene of a most gruesome murder November 15, 1959 when four members of the Clutter family were killed by two drifters.  This was the story as set out by Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, 

I finally was able to find the Clutter grave stone (AI 470-2) as well as the grave site for Alvin Dewey (AG 346/8)  who was the KBI ( Kansas Bureau of Investigations) agent who chased down and brought to justice the two perpetrators of this murder.
