History Detectives: Cemetery Alarm

Wes Cowan, star of PBS' History Detectives, and Scott Gampfer, Director of History Collections & Preservation Coordinator for the Cincinnati Museum Center, discuss a recent episode featuring a cemetery alarm with 91.7WVXU News Director Maryanne Zeleznick. Cincinnati was a hotbed of illegal exhumation in the late 19th century and the John Scott Harrison case which brought about legislation ending grave robbing originated here.
