October 16th, 1960 was a memorable day for baseball fans since the World Series was in full stride. But for Goldie Killough, events were about to unfold which would brutally end her life. Her husband, James, suspected her of infidelity and now was waiting to confront her at home. When Goldie did not return home at her usual time, James' blood began to boil as thoughts of her sleeping with another man tormented him. He had only one recourse, he thought: he must find his wife in the actual act and shame her, but not hurt her. Suspecting that she might be at a friends' house, he left his home in hopes of discovering whatever evidence he might and confront his wife with it.
