The disappearance of the Lyon sisters from a mall in Montgomery County in 1975 shocked the public and mystified police. Four decades later, an overlooked tip led police to a new suspect - Lloyd Welch.
Mark Bowden’s latest book, The Last Stone, describes how detectives sorted through Welch’s elaborate explanations. We hear how Bowden covered the story as a rookie reporter for the Baltimore News-American and what he thinks lies behind the popularity of the true crime genre.
Hear Mark Bowden speak tonight at the Pratt's Writers LIVE event: 7:00 pm, at the Church of the Redeemer, 5603 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21210.
