Lunch with the History People has a really good speaker with a really good story this thursday. Judge John DeSanto, former St. Louis County Attorney, presents “The Glensheen Murders: Over 36 Years of Mystery & Intrigue.” He will cover the disturbing details in the Congdon murders.

Elisabeth Congdon and Velma Pietila were murdered in the home and some details were not told to the public. With his position at the time he knew a little more than the average person knew. His presentation is based on the collaborative book entitled Will to Murder: the True Story behind the Crimes and Trials Surrounding the Glensheen Killings, which he authored with former Duluth News Tribune columnist Gail Feichtinger and Detective Gary Waller of the Duluth Police.

His book will be available at the presentation, as he talks about what he witnessed first hand.  The event will be held in the Ruth Maney Room, on the first floor of the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot), at 506 West Michigan Street, Duluth, Minnesota.

There will be limited theater-style seating (no tables), but feel free to bring your own bag lunch. Seating is first-come, first-served (no reservations). Admittance to this event is free to the public. ARCO coffee is provided.
