True Crime

When: Tue., Jan. 18 2011

Cleveland has no lack of sensational unsolved crimes, nor authors who have tried to untangle them. Among them, count James Jessen Badal, an assistant professor of English and journalism at Cuyahoga Community College, who tackled the infamous "torso murders" in 2001's In the Wake of the Butcher, then tried to bring clarity to Beverly Potts' tragic disappearance in 2005's Twilight of Innocence. Devotees of local history, fans of true crimes, and those just plain curious about the gory details won't want to miss Badal's 7 p.m. talk tonight at the Lakewood Public Library. It's free. And even if you don't walk away with any answers, you certainly can score signed copies of Badal's books. No registration is required. The library is at 15425 Detroit Ave. in Lakewood. For more info, call 216-226-8275 ext. 127 or visit — Cicora
