Description
 
Founded in 1798, Hamtramck shrank in size even as it grew in population. Stuffing tens of thousands of people in 2.1 square miles is bound to breed conflict, and many of those conflicts boiled over into murder.

Sunday, September 7, 1884, was supposed to be a day of joy for Fritz Krum, whose child was being christened. Instead, it ended in a fatal stabbing.

The 1930 killing of police officer Barney Roth in a reputed mob hit drew national attention.

The murder of Hamtramck teen Bernice Onisko remains an open case today, more than eighty years after it occurred.

Gathering cases from the late nineteenth century to more recent times, prolific local historian Greg Kowalski takes readers on a journey through Hamtramck homicide. Signed By The Author
