This case is the first and only time in U.S history that evidence from a ghost was admissible in the murder trial. Elva Zona Heaster Shue was married to the blacksmith in town, Erasmus “Edward” Stribbling Trout Shue. At first he seemed like a wonderful guy: charming, had good stories to tell, wooed her off her feet. Then as soon as they were married, things changed drastically and in the coming months more would be found out about this Edward character and more about Zona’s death.
