IN 1922, JEFFERSON COUNTY, OHIO LED THE NATION IN PROHIBITION OFFICER MURDERS: MOST OF THEM STILL UNSOLVED

Gambling, prostitution and bootlegging have been going on in Steubenville for well oveIMG_0193_tweaked-2_tweaked-e1400268624225r one hundred years. Its Water Street red-light district drew men from hundreds of miles away, as well as underage runaways. The white slave trade was rampant, and along with all the vice crimes, murders became a weekly occurrence. Law enforcement seemed to turn a blind eye, and cries of political corruption were heard in the state capital. This scenario replayed itself over and over again during the past century as mobsters and madams ruled and murders plagued the city and county at an alarming rate. Newspapers nationwide would come to nickname this mecca of murder “Little Chicago.”
