Today, a t-shirt was found in the lake near the Sheppard home. Dr. Sam Sheppard was allegedly wearing a T-shirt before the dawn of July, 4, 1954, when his wife was beaten to death in the bedroom of their home. Sheppard apparently said that he was knocked out by his wife's killer and came to in the waterfront of his Bay Village lakefront home. The article also mentions an "enigmatic notation" that was found in Sheppard's wallet, which was located in his trousers.
