If you love finding lesser-known details from Arizona’s history, but haven’t heard the true-crime story of Winnie Ruth Judd, then it’s time to get schooled.
Judd became known as the Trunk Murderess and the Blonde Butcher after she was caught hauling two dead bodies (one dismembered) in her luggage on a train to Los Angeles. She was arrested, tried, and convicted, but her story didn’t end there. Phoenix history buff Marshall Shore will share the scoop on the so-called murderess during History Underground: Obscure Anecdotes. Hear all the dark and crazy details at 7 p.m. on Sunday, May 21, at Valley Bar, 130 North Central Avenue. Admission is $5 for the 21-and-over event.
