Leslie Irvin

In the years, 1954 and 1955, a killer was on the loose in rural southwest Indiana and Kentucky.  A maniac who killed and robbed. A man no one could seem to catch–until they did. The public outrage in small-town America was loud and clear. They wanted him dead. This is a story of robbery, senseless murder and the first murder conviction to be overturned by the United States Supreme Court due to prejudicial media attention. This is the story of Leslie “Mad Dog” Irvin.
