Disappearance of Dr. Parkman with Judge Dennis J. Curran (Ret.)
Thursday, February 9th | 7:00 PM (Virtual)
This case has it all, a grisly murder, a dismembered corpse, a wealthy victim, a respected suspect, a questionable lead witness for the prosecutuion and unusual court proceedings. This case is legally historic. It established the legal standard of "proof beyond a reasonable doubt" - a requirement that has since been adopted by just about every state in the nation. And it all started in Boston with this case. [Register Here]
