Murder During the Chicago World's Fair: The Killing of Little Emma Werner (A Historical True Crime Short)







From R. Barri Flowers, award-winning criminologist and bestselling author of Murder at the Pencil Factory and Murder of the Banker's Daughter comes the powerful historical true crime short, Murder During the Chicago World's Fair: The Killing of Little Emma Werner.

On Tuesday, May 9, 1893, seven-year-old Emma Werner was the victim of a brutal and lethal attack in Chicago, Illinois. The dreadful murder came at the start of the city's much ballyhooed 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, also known as the Chicago World's Fair. It coincided with the heinous crimes of ruthless serial killer Herman Webster Mudgett, who built a hotel called the World's Fair Hotel to house and profit from the Fair visitors needing a place to stay. The hotel was a death trap for unsuspecting, mostly female, guests and employees alike.

Emma’s killer was twenty-one-year-old George Craig, who worked as a painter at the World's Fair. By the time the Fair was over, the mayor of Chicago, Carter Harrison, would be assassinated by Patrick Eugene Prendergast, a disgruntled newspaper worker. And before the shocking final disposition to the murder of Emma Werner could come to pass nearly four years later, Craig and Prendergast would cross paths in jail, Mudgett and Prendergast would be executed, and Craig would be set free in what many saw as an unbelievable miscarriage of justice and misguided sense of compassion for the cold-blooded child killer.

The tragic tale of Emma Werner’s short life and its chilling convergence with other tragedies against the backdrop of the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair is revealed in the pages of this historical trip down memory lane.

Included are bonus excerpts of R. Barri Flowers' bestselling true crime shorts, Murder at the Pencil Factory, Murder of the Banker's Daughter, and The Pickaxe Killers.

Murder During the Chicago World's Fair: The Killing of Little Emma Werner is available in Kindle, Nook, iTunes, Google Play, kobo, and Smashwords.

Now in Audio, SERIAL KILLERS AND PROSTITUTES by Bestselling Author R. Barri Flowers





New True Crime Audiobook just released today by RJ Parker Publishing, Inc.and R Barri Flowers. Available on Amazon, iTunes and Audible.

***

Serial Killers and Prostitutes, by award-winning criminologist and Ripperologist R. Barri Flowers, taps into the best-selling author's expertise on serial murderers and sex trade workers in offering an in-depth look at four noteworthy cases in which the two worlds collide.
Jack the Ripper, the unidentified Victorian serial killer of at least five prostitutes in the dangerous section of London, known as Whitechapel, in 1888. The Ripper, who slashed and horribly mutilated his sex worker victims, set the tone for diabolical, vicious serial slayers to follow for all time.
Aileen Wuornos was a white American prostitute, who doubled as a serial killer in murdering seven johns in Florida between 1989 and 1990. She claimed they tried to or succeeded in raping her during the course of prostituting herself. In the process, Wuornos ended up being apropos for this book as a sex worker and serial predator.
Kendall Francois was an African American serial killer, dubbed the "Poughkeepsie Killer," who strangled to death eight streetwalker prostitutes in Poughkeepsie, New York, between 1996 and 1998. Francois used his own residence as a horrifying house of homicides and burial ground.
The Edmonton Serial Killer represented one or more mostly unidentified serial killers who targeted and murdered dozens of prostitutes in the city of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada, between the mid-1970s and the early 2000s, and possibly beyond that. The sex trade worker victims were often picked up in the city's red-light district, murdered, and dumped in various killing fields in rural areas around Edmonton.
