Welcome to our Keynote Presentation for the 2021 True Crime Convention! #truecrime #MObicentennial

Missouri has seen its share of notorious crimes. It witnessed the first Western gunfight on the town square between Wild Bill Hickok and Dave Tutt, the unsolved murders of socialites Margaret Mortimer and Harriet McDaniel, the killings within a few blocks of each other that inspired the songs “Stagger Lee” and “Frankie and Johnny,” and the country’s oldest serial killers Faye and Ray Copeland. Vicki Berger Erwin and James W. Erwin explore crimes, criminals, and victims from the violent history of the last two hundred years in the Show-Me State.

Vicki Berger Erwin has been in the publishing industry for more than thirty years in various capacities, including sales, book distribution and as the owner of a bookstore in St. Charles, Missouri. She is the author of thirty books in varied genres: picture books, middle-grade mysteries and novels, local histories and true crime. James W. Erwin practiced law in St. Louis for thirty-seven years. He is the author of five books on local history.

In 2020, they published their first book written together – Steamboat Disasters of the Lower Missouri River. Notorious Missouri: 200 Years of Historic Crimes is their second book together. They live in Crestwood, Missouri.

  • Miss the program? No problem, the program will be available using this LINK until January 21, 2022.
