|Old Licking County Jail|
A lovely inmate there for a time.
Mug Shot of Elderly Murderer Laura Bell Devlin
Original caption: 1/7/1947-Newark, OH: Mrs. Laura Bell Devlin, 72, shown above, who murderd her 75-year-old husband, Thomas, then dismembered his body with a hacksaw and scattered the parts in the backyard, today professed her dislike for jail. She protested vehemently when officials tried to fingerprint her saying "that ink will make my hands dirty," and again when she was placed before the camera, "No," she asserted. She kept repeating "Can I go home now?', unmoved and in no way penitent for the alleged crime.
