    The Tanxsnitania and The Murders

    Virginia Creeper points to a link between this tribe and the Route 211 murders.  I promise to get a review of the book up soon – but in the meantime I found this article.  It took a lot of searches because there are three ways to spell the name of the tribe that I’ve found (so far!) 


  4. Indian Pulpit – Peter Pocum’s Pulpit – Tied To The Murders?

    Indian Pulpit - Peter Pocum's Pulpit - Tied To The Murders?

    I just finished Virginia Creeper which allegedly fills in a lot of the gaps on the Route 211 murders. I was questioning it. I mean the premise of the book is pretty frightening – but it certainly explains why officials haven’t commented about the murders all of these years!

    I found a book on the history of Fauquier county and discovered this photo of Indian Pulpit! So at least some of this story has to be correct. This photo certainly fits the description in the book. Now I’m wondering just how much of Pardoe’s book is true. I tried to call him but the line was busy. Does anyone know him or have you heard of anything that might help clarify just how true Virginia Creeper is?
