Murder in My Hometown: Interview with Rebecca Morris

    In her new book, A MURDER IN MY HOMETOWN, Rebecca Morris writes about her investigation into the unsolved murder of a high school classmate in Corvallis, Oregon fifty years ago. Set against the backdrop of 1968, one of the most eventful and dramatic years in America, “A Murder in My Hometown” is part true crime and part memoir. On a fall evening in Corvallis, Oregon in 1967, 17-year-old Dick Kitchel, a senior at the high school, disappeared after attending a party.
