Summary
Bloody Chicago was the name given to Americas most corrupt city after the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. The masterminds behind the massacre escaped. Ten months later on December 14, 1929, St. Joseph, Michigan Police Officer Charles Skelly came face to face with a killer. Shots were fired, the assailant escaped and the dying Officer Skelly identified his murderer before taking his last breath. The trail led to a home in Stevensville, Michigan which belonged to Fred Burke, a highly sought suspect in the St. Valentines Day Massacre. The backwash of bloody Chicago had made its way into the rural neighborhoods of Southwestern Michigan and Northern Indiana
