On Sunday January 20, 2019, at 2 pm at the Champaign County Historical Museum, 809 E. Lawn Ave., Urbana, Attorney Darrell Heckman will present "Poisoned in Urbana". This presentation recounts the intentional poisoning of a prominent Urbana family in 1927 and the identiﬁcation, charging, and extradition of the suspect - a lawyer! There are numerous twists to the story all of which are fascinating.
The public is encouraged to attend; attendees should note, however, that this event will coincide with the Annual Meeting of the Champaign County Historical Society.
The Champaign County Historical Society is an all-volunteer, not-for-proﬁt organization that preserves, protects, archives and displays the artifacts that tell the Champaign County story. The Society depends upon donations and dues to provide a free public museum located at 809 E. Lawn Ave., Urbana. The museum is open from 10-4 Mondays and Tuesdays and from 1-4 Sundays.
