Tenil Horr, who murdered his wife, Ida on that day in Danville, IL. Find out the rest of the story by attending the book signing in the Museum Center. Meet the author Steve Meeker. In researching his family history, Steve discovered that his Great Aunt Ida, who was born Ida Meeker in Bismarck, IL on October10, 1879, had been murdered.

   The conversations that are illustrated in the story are fictional, and some names have been changed, but the novel is a timeline of the events before and after the murder.
