Lindsay is joined by Andrew Noone, author of the book “Bathsheba Spooner: A Revolutionary Murder Conspiracy.”

The story of Bathsheba Spooner has alternately fascinated and baffled residents of Worcester County for centuries. Beyond central Massachusetts, the tale is largely unknown. Many, when first hearing of the tale, assume it to be the stuff of legend. It was, in fact, the most sensational “true crime” tragedy of the American 1700’s.
