“Who Killed Franklin Gowen?” is an in-depth analysis of the death of Franklin Gowen, whose death in Washington, D. C. on December 13, 1889, was called a suicide by the Washington coroner, but believed to be murder by Gowen’s immediate family. Gowen’s death created a sensation in the national newspapers. Author Campbell did an exhaustive study of Gowen’s clues in search of clues that would prove that Gowen was murdered mysteriously by an unknown assailant. Molly Maguire buffs must have this book in their libraries.
