The Fine Points of Murder 

Our original speaker for this Sunday, Anji Maddox of She Spies Private Eyes is unable to join us, but we plan to have her come back in 2021! In the meantime, our very own Dave Ciambrone has agreed to give a presentation in his Murder 101 Series. Dave, as you may know, has worn MANY hats in his lifetime (Dave’s a scientist, newspaper columnist, a professor of engineering, a business and environmental consultant–you get the idea) He is the author of the Virginia Davies Quilt Mysteries and the newest, Mysterious Threads, has just been released! Thanks, Dave for stepping in!

In this presentation, Dave Ciambrone will explain what really happens when you kill someone by various methods.
