Skidmore, Missouri is a very small town. In the ’70s, there was only one bar, one grocery store, and one bully. Ken McElroy was so ruthless and intimidating that even law enforcement looked the other way. He terrorized the town for decades, until they finally fought back.

We spoke with Harry MacLean, author of In Broad Daylight.


Criminal is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX.
