When the gruesome murder case of Willoughby’s Dr. Giuseppe Romano went cold in 1936, there was little hope that it would ever be solved. Cleveland had its hands full with a bloody decade of violent crime; but with the Mafia code of silence, secrets were kept – until an unexpected figure would betray the omerta fifty years later.

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Tells the story of the great October 1893 storm that sank many vessels on Lake Erie. In fact, this storm was actually one of the most powerful hurricanes ever recorded, and it occurred in an unprecedented year of hurricanes and damage to North America. One of the ships sunk was the 3-masted schooner, Riverside, which was lost with all hands while carrying a load of stone from Kelleys Island. In 2007, the Cleveland Underwater Explorers (CLUE) located this shipwreck 25-30 miles off Cleveland, OH. The wreck is a pristine example of a 19th-century schooner and is an outstanding Lake Erie shipwreck.

Photographs show how the wreck is preserved on the bottom today. Presented by Kevin Magee
