Staff Reviews

If you have ever felt that we in Vermont have not had our fair share of tantalizing murders and mysteries, this book will set your mind to rest. Mr. Bellamy chronicles a number of examples of chronic misbehavior and unexplained disappearances amongst the Green Mountains, from the case of Bennington College student, Paula Weldon, who set off one afternoon in 1946 for a hike on the Long Trail and has never been seen again to Mary Rogers, who was summarily hanged for using her feminine charms to persuade two brothers to dispatch her husband. — Alden Graves


Containing accounts of ten classic murders and two inexplicable disappearances, Vintage Vermont Villainies is a veritable "best of the best" of Vermont homicides occurring between 1874 and 1957. Bellamy's catalog of miscreants includes Mary Rogers, whose seduction of two brothers paved the way to eliminating her inconvenient husband; and John Winters, whose date with the electric chair enlisted the sympathies of Clarence Darrow.
