Item description for Mrs. Maybrick: Crime Archive by Victoria Blake, Mary Beth Crain, Scott Aucutt, Ahmad Zaki Bin Abu Bakar, Kazue Ueda, Gregory Volk, Open University & B. Teissier...
Florence Maybrick was a 19-year-old Alabama belle when she married cotton-broker James Maybrick in 1881. She was convicted of his murder in 1889 after arsenic was found in his corpse. However, it was never established whether she administered the poison, or whether Maybrick himself a hypochondriac who used arsenic and other tonics took the fatal dose. Her death sentence was commuted to imprisonment and she served 15 years before her reprieve in 1903. This bloody history tells the compelling tale of a ruined marriage and its infidelities, examining the murder, trial and controversy through Home Office files held at the National Archives and features new photographs of Mrs. Maybrick. It concludes with a bizarre twist: James Maybrick became a Jack the Ripper suspect in 1992.
