Our People Made It In PEOPLE

I'd like to say our community made a nationally known magazine for its charitable contributions or from someone who accomplished losing weight half their size.  Nope, not so.

Our small city of Quincy, IL made the January 18 issue of PEOPLE magazine for an alleged murder.  In a nutshell, the article tells of Curtis Lovelace's upcoming trial for supposedly murdering his wife.  And, for the kicker, it happened eight years ago.

A city detective opened the case for whatever reason in 2014 and noticed inconsistencies in how the wife died.  The case has now been opened as a murder by Mr. Lovelace.  I can't say I know those actually involved, but do know a lot of the law enforcement that is part of the case.  Is it a "Fairy Tale Turned Fatal?"  It's not for me to judge.  (I've already got my own theories about Making A Murderer.  I don't have time to solve another case!)  I am, however, interested to seeing how this all plays out. 

Have you or anyone you know ever been in a well-known magazine?  Did you read the "Fairy Tale Turned Fatal?" article?  

What about Making A Murderer?  Have you seen it yet?

Don't read People or any other magazine. No TV so I've never seen the show you mentioned. My biggest brush with fame was being in the same play as Nick Nolte (in 1967).

I will read that issue of People when my mom is done with it and hands it down to me :) So, congrats to your town????
I did watch Making a Murderer and I feel neither man got a fair trial BUT I do believe we have not heard the complete unbiased story...both men need to be re-tried far far away from their home town and any evidence collected by the officers of Manitowoc County should be viewed as highly suspicious...
