The Real Facts of the Sam Sheppard Case

Neurosurgeon & Wrestler, Sam Sheppard

 

Newspaper columnist Dorothy Kilgallen shortly before the trial started said, “Well, he’s guilty as hell. There’s no question about it.”

 

Samuel Holmes “Sam” Sheppard, D.O. (December 29, 1923 – April 6, 1970) was a Bay Village, Ohio neurosurgeon initially convicted for the 1954 murder of his wife, Marilyn Reese Sheppard. The case was highly controversial from the beginning, with extensive and prolonged nationwide media coverage. The U.S. Supreme Court determined that the “carnival atmosphere” surrounding Sheppard’s first trial had made due process impossible; after ten years in prison he was acquitted at a second trial.
