Traveling The “Dark Highway”: An Interview With Author Ann D’angelo

About this episode

This episode of Scandal Water contains adult themes and descriptions of violence. It is not intended for all audiences. Listener discretion is advised.

In last week’s episode, you heard the details behind the fascinating double-murder case involving Verna Garr Taylor and Henry Denhardt, former Kentucky Lieutenant Governor.

This week we have the privilege to speak with Ann D’Angelo, author of the book “Dark Highway” that delves into this infamous case. 

What insights did Ann glean from descendants of both Verna and Henry? What actually happened during that fateful day trip that ended with Verna lying in a ditch, dead from a gunshot? Did Henry really kill the woman at the center of the Seelbach’s “Lady in Blue” legend? Was Henry’s death an act of self-defense or murder? And what theory best explains the unsolved mystery of how Verna actually died?

We discuss all this and so much more in this lively interview with author Ann D’Angelo. So don’t miss your chance to travel the “Dark Highway” with the woman who spent 6 years researching these sensational murders.
