About This Book

"The story of Mary Secaur's demise and the vengeance inflicted upon her suspected assailants by an enraged mob that took the law into its own hands." — The Daily Standard On a hot and dusty Sunday in June 1872, 13-year-old Mary Secaur set off on her two-mile walk home from church. She never arrived. The horrific death of this young girl inspired an illegal interstate pursuit-and-arrest, courtroom dramatics, conflicting confessions, and the daylight lynching of a traveling tin peddler and an intellectually disabled teenager. Who killed Mary Secaur? Were the accused actually guilty? What drove the citizens of Mercer County to lynch the suspects? David Kimmel seeks answers to these provoking questions and deftly recounts what actually happened in the fateful summer of 1872, imagining the inner workings of the small rural community, reconstructing the personal relationships of those involved, and restoring humanity to this gripping story. Using a unique blend of historical research and contemporary accounts, Outrage in Ohio explores how a terrible crime ripped an Ohio farming community apart and asks us to question what really happened to Mary Secaur. "Kimmel tells of the 1872 rape and horrifying murder of Mary, a 13-year-old girl who lived near Van Wert in Mercer County... Kimmel uses intensive research and constructed conversations to produce his look at this crime." — Akron Beacon Journal
