Clifford Ramey Murder
The murder of Clifford Ramey on September 15 1939 is probably one of the sadest and the most infamous crimes
ever committed in Jasper County Illinois. I had heard about this all of my life and finally tracked down the details.

The murder was featured in the April 1948 edition of "Women In Crime" magazine and possibly earlier in "True
Detective" magazine. The story also appeared in "Popular Comics #54" on August 1, 1940. It also received lots of
coverage in the newspapers.
