Legends of the Heartland: The Life and Crimes of Return Ward, vol 1

On June 12, 1857, a man with the strange name of Return Jonathan Meigs Ward was hanged at the Lucas County courthouse just minutes before noon. He would go down in history as Ohio’s first serial killer. Ward’s final victim was his own wife, murdered in the heart of downtown Sylvania, Ohio. Now, over 160 years later, multiple eye-witnesses, across five different locations, believe the ghost of his murdered wife still walks among us!

This documentary premiered on Toledo’s PBS affiliate, WGTE, on October 22, 2020.

This documentary is available on DVD and Blu-ray.
