Description

Contents of private letters that Dr. Sam Sheppard wrote while in County jail are revealed in this article. The letters are addressed to Marilyn Sheppard's aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Guilford (Bud) Brown. The reporter's use of the term 'death plot' in the article's headline is most likely an interpretation of one of the thoughts Dr. Sam expressed in the letters.
