A Place for Dumping Bodies

In June 1942, Cleveland police officers and detectives examine a site under the Sidaway Bridge where the body of 20-year old Marie Wilson was found. Later that year, Willie Johnson, an unemployed dishwasher, was convicted of killing her and dumping her body under the bridge. In the 1930s, Kingsbury Run acquired a reputation as a body dump, because of the notorious Cleveland Torso murders.
