On a cold November night 80 years ago, the body of beautiful Oldham County businesswoman Verna Garr Taylor was found in a ditch along a lonely highway in rural Kentucky. A single bullet had pierced her heart. Her fiancé, Brig. Gen. Henry Denhardt, the state’s former lieutenant governor and adjutant general, insisted she committed suicide, but the evidence pointed to murder.

Author and attorney Ann DAngelo will discuss this tale of a romance that suddenly turned violent.
