Marion Carnegie Library will present a program by Bonney Hogue Patterson, author of Hunted in the Heartland: A Memoir of Murder on Monday, October 3 at 6 p.m. Her book talks about events surrounding the murder of her neighbor in 1978. The program is free and open to the community.

 Patterson says, “The murder of my neighbor, Virginia Lee Witte, occurred in the small, middle-American town of Marion, Illinois, on May 12, 1978. I had only moved to the area in January of that year, did not know everyone who lived nearby and did not realize an encounter with a rather ominous stranger was not someone generally known in the area.” This is the author’s first book. She now lives near St. Louis, Missouri.
