Eddie Waitkus, Amy Bishop, and life on the registry
A Deadspin excerpt of a Kindle Single about the shooting of Eddie Waitkus by Ruth Ann Sternhagen. This, of course, is partly the basis for The Natural; Gutman’s take on the case in Baseball Babylon is a bit more smoothly written than this one, IMO. Anyone know a good longform piece or book about Sternhagen?
The New Yorker‘s Patrick Radden Keefe on Amy Bishop, and one unusual mass shooting that actually perhaps could have been prevented.
And enjoy a Forensic Files about the disappearance of Noreen Boyle. Narrator Peter Thomas died earlier this year and I’ve always admired his work.
