Notes / Description: 

Louis Fain was accused of raping, robbing, and murdering Miss Carrie Allen. Because of her popularity in the area, Fain's attorney requested a change of venue. Selecting an impartial, uninvested jury would be difficult. Testimonies include those robbed by Fain that night. Fain swapped jewelry for liquor. He admitted to witness that he cut Allen's throat so she could not identify him. 4 folders.
