Case Files For Clutter Murders Available Online
06/03/2013

The Kansas Historical Society says the inmate case files for the two men charged in the infamous "In Cold Blood" murders are online.
 
     The Historical Society says in a release that the files for Richard Eugene Hickock and Perry Edward Smith have been added to Kansas Memory, the Historical Society's online archives of photographs, manuscripts and government records.
 
     Hickock and Smith were convicted of the 1959 murders of Herb and Bonnie Clutter, their daughter, Nancy, and son, Kenyon, at their home in Holcomb. The murders inspired the Truman Capote's book "In Cold Blood." Hickock and Smith were executed by hanging in 1965.
 
     The case files contain correspondence with prison officials and family, clemency petitions and legal documents, as well as their last meal requests and execution witness lists.
