The Clutter Family Remembered
09/14/2009
 

Saturday, September 12, 2009

Nearly 200 people gathered in the southwest Kansas town of Holcomb Saturday to remember the Clutter Family almost 50 years after they were brutally murdered.

The family's murders on November 15, 1959 shocked the country and was chronicled in Truman Capote's novel "In Cold Blood."

But the community of Holcomb wanted to make sure that today's memorial was about the family's accomplishments.

Herb Clutter was a successful farmer and businessman and his leadership in agriculture, and the family's activities with the 4-H organization were the focus of the ceremony that took place at Holcomb Community Park.

The victims of the killing were Herb Clutter; his wife, Bonnie; and their children, 15-year-old Kenyon and 16-year-old Nancy. They were shot to death and robbed of about $40 and a radio.
