Holcomb To Erect Memorial To The Clutter Family

KSCB News - June 26, 2009 12:00 am

– A location has been picked for a memorial

to honor the family of four whose 1959 killing in rural southwest

Kansas was chronicled in Truman Capote’s novel “In Cold Blood.”

The Holcomb City Council agreed Wednesday that the memorial

should be located at the Holcomb Community Park. But there was some

disagreement during the meeting about where in the park it should

be built.

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 at their Holcomb farmhouse.

Construction of the site is expected to start soon. The memorial

dedication is planned for Sept. 12, ahead of the 50th anniversary

of the killings in November.
