Tales of Dayton’s own bank robbers, counterfeiters and murderers are told in this tour. Who confessed on their deathbed of murdering pretty 18 year old Christine Kett? Did Rose Shafor really dress up as a man to help her lover commit a crime? Who killed Julius Kruse? And was the “Cincinnati Ripper” living in Dayton? These stories and more are told while walking through the cemetery. Please note that some stories told are the actual accounts of murders that took place in Dayton. Graphic details are given and may not be appropriate for all audiences.
