On August 4 1932 Jenny Merrill was shot and killed in her Natchez, Mississippi home, Glenburnie. An eccentric couple who lived in a run down mansion known as the “Goat Castle” were arrested and charged with murder. But an innocent African American woman went to jail for the crime. Karen L. Cox, author of Goat Castle: A True Story of Murder, Race, and the Gothic South joins me to tell the story of murder and injustice.
