Centerville's Connection to the St. Valentine's Day Massacre
Flashback Friday 2017 #2: The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre’s Connection to Centerville- **Make sure to click 'more' so you see this whole post! An important link is included.** "Fred "Killer" Burke was a Midwestern armed robber and contract killer responsible for many crimes during the Prohibition era. He is considered a prime suspect in the infamous St. Valentine's Day Massacre of 1929. He was married to a Centerville girl, Bonnie Porter, at the parsonage of the Lutheran Church in Centerville. Additionally, please watch this fantastic video from 1931. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wdkvuj-7ZAI This film was made right after Fred Burke was captured in Green City, Missouri. All of the people involved re-enacted their own part of the event, except for Fred Burke himself, who by then was in the pokey. The best part about the video is it's age. A snippet in time from a small rural community. This will link to the first part of the video, and then it will continue onto the second video if you wait for it to.
