70 Year Anniversary of Ohio's Mad Dog Killers Reign of Terror that Included 2 Innocent People in Seneca County

This year marks the 70th anniversary of a 14-day reign of terror that swept through Ohio where 6 innocent people were killed at the hands of two ruthless murderers. From July 9th, 1948 through July 23rd, Robert Daniels and John West, former inmates at the Mansfield Reformatory, went on a senseless killing spree. Sadly, these killings included two from Seneca County.   
Rita Smith’s husband was one of those murdered and the Seneca County Museum has recently received an incredible collection if items from this event, courtesy of Rita’s family. This display will be available until late October, so make plans to see it soon. Viewing these items has a way of connecting you to that day, 70 years ago, and can give you a greater understanding of the pain and sadness that Rita suffered during that event, and for many years beyond that time.

Visit the Seneca County Museum at 28 Clay St., Tiffin!
Tues-Fri 1 p.m. - 5 p.m., Sat 12 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Kicking-off this summer are themed evenings in downtown Tiffin - every third Thursday of each month!
