Ready, Set Go!!!!
OK, it is Sunday Morning and no one has gotten it, so I am the Winner! From the sweet an innocent look on the face, you should have guessed that this woman was a killer. On November 21, 1920 Oklahoma Oilman and Republican National Committeeman Jake Harman stumbled into the Hardy Sanatorium suffering from a gunshot wound. He claimed he had been cleaning his gun, and accidentally shot himself. He died a few days later. Almost immediately his girl friend skips town. No one believes his story that he accidentally shot himself, and a warrant is issued for the woman's arrest (Clara Smith Hamon, pictured above). She made a run for the border, and escaped into Mexico. After some time, she was captured and brought back to stand trial. She was found innocent. Most people felt that she probably had done it, but felt that it was probably justified, and that sentiment likely led to the verdict of innocent.
The story was a National Sensation of the day, due to the scandal and political intrigue. Lots of coverage in the New York times, and other large newspapers.
So, the woman was Clara Smith Hamon, no one got it, and PJM is the winner!
PJM!!! PJM!!! PJM!!!
