CANCELED: Rick Jackson presents North Carolina Murder & Mayhem

 

The smiling faces and southern hospitality of North Carolina promise a paradise for visitors and residents alike, but darkness still lurks in small towns as well as big cities. The state’s dangerous past of violence and murder is never seen in tourist pamphlets. From the capture of Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph in the mountains to the seaside murder of the Hermit of Fort Fisher, dark deeds have touched every part of the state. Author Rick Jackson tells the stories behind some of the most famous, and most heinous, crimes in the history of the Old North State.  

Rick Jackson is a native North Carolinian who grew up in Durham and now lives with his family in Wake Forest, just outside Raleigh. He currently teaches business and economic courses to high school students after spending many years in banking and finance in various positions. He holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Campbell University and an MBA from the University of Mount Olive. Rick’s first book, Ghosts of the Triangle, was written with his brother, William Jackson, and was published by The History Press in 2009.
