Smuttynose Island in the Isles of Shoals has become an iconic part of the dark side of Maine and New Hampshire history.
This is the historic case of three women attacked in the dead of night, when a robbery turned bloody and the thief wielded an ax that would end the lives of two. The third woman lived to tell her tale, though some argue that it was the sole survivor herself who commited the murders and pointed her finger at Louis H.F. Wager, who would face death himself for the crime.
This is the Murderous History of Maine's Smuttynose Island.
