Early to bed, early to rise, makes one healthy, wealthy and a finder of dead guys. I think that's how it goes. That's how it went anyways for a couple of Ohio fisherman who were going to get an early start eighty-three years ago today.
In the Cleveland suburb of Moreland Hills the previously mentioned anglers were driving along River road at about 2:00am when their head lights shone on the body of one Jack "Kibby" Langman. Kibby had been tossed into the road a few minutes earlier with two bullets in the back of his head.
According to police Kibby was a "gunman, gambler and a gangster member of a notorious east side mob". An Associate of his murdered a local council man and police thought that maybe Kibby was taken for a ride because they were afraid he was gonna do a little singing that might cook a few more gooses. Another theory was that he had moved from gambling into bootlegging. So take your pick.
