The Unknown Woman Murder Mystery

Saturday March 25, 2017

The Crime of the Century!

On the morning of March 25, 1887 a young woman was found dead near Jefferson and Central Avenues in Rahway,NJ. She was beaten and her throat had been slashed from ear to ear…

To this day, the crime that shocked the country remains unsolved.

Join us as we commemorate the 130th anniversary of the Unknown Woman who rests in Rahway Cemetery.

As you tour the cemetery you’ll meet the “ghosts” of Rahway residents who experienced the crime and its aftermath firsthand. From the man who discovered her corpse to the coroner who photographed her to the reporters who carried her casket; each will tell you their theory of the crime.

Won’t you join me for my 130th Anniversary..?

Tickets and Reservation info coming soon.
