Coshocton And The Legend Of Murder Ridge

Not being a native Coshoctonian, I often encounter old local stories which seem larger than life.
In this case, the story of Cletus Reese and Murder Ridge sounded like something Stephen King could have brewed within his fertile imagination. I had heard wild and varying accounts of the multiple murders committed by Reese.

Then, one day while ordering up a beverage at Coffee Co, I encountered a person whose father had known Cletus Reese (she is also related to Mary Stockum).

Thus, the seeds were planted. During this week's remainder, I'll tell you about what I've found. In the meantime, sleep well.
