I am looking for information regarding the murder of Orpha Shain. I have been told that her husband, Joe Peck Smith, was convicted of the murder and hung in Saline County, IL in 1926. Apparently there was also some mystery surrounding the role that Orpha's sister, Arville, played in the murder. Any information about this would be appreciated!
