NE Murder Spree Figure Critically Injured in MI Car Crash
Tekonsha Township, MI - A woman who was one of two teenage participants in a killing spree that left 11 people dead 55 years ago, has been critically injured in a crash in Michigan.
The Battle Creek Enquirer says 70-year-old Caril Clair of Stryker, Ohio, was critically hurt and her 81-year-old husband Frederick Clair killed late Monday in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 69 in Calhoun County's Tekonsha Township, 70 miles south-southeast of Grand Rapids.
As a 14-year-old, then-Caril Fugate and her 19-year-old boyfriend Charlie Starkweather went on a killing spree in Nebraska and Wyoming in 1957-58 that claimed the lives of Fugate's mother, stepfather, 2-year-old sister and eight others.
Starkweather was executed, while Fugate was imprisoned until 1976.
