He Shot the Sheriff: Crimes from the Archive Saturday May 27th 2-3pm at the Hotel Metro

We've taken a look through the records we hold on crime and picked out some scandalous, tragic and unusual stories.
Hear about runaway convicts, a murder at Government House and see some criminal mugshots from the State's past.
