The night of August 19, 1977, Ron Gillespie gets a call from the Circleville Letter Writer.

So enraged by what he hears, he grabs his gun, kisses his daughter goodbye and leaves his home on Brookmiller Road, and is dead less than an hour later.

After that night, the Letter Writer sets themselves on a collision course with the town of CIrcleville to answer for the murder of Ron Gillespie.

That's the story, anyways, but what exactly happened that night? On this episode we look at the evidence in the case and start to piece together what happened that night on Five Points Pike.

Episode has been newly remastered by Sarah Vorhees Wendel, with a special thanks to the Astonishing Legends Podcast.
