The Secrets They Kept: The True Story of a Mercy Killing That Shocked a Town and Shamed a Family

The following exceprt is from a story by James Chilton in the October 13, 2013 dition of the Wyoming Tribune Eagle. Goodness… Some story…

CHEYENNE [Wyoming] — Growing up in California, Suzanne Handler never knew her aunt.

In fact, until she was 50, Handler didn’t even know she had an aunt.

But once she found out, she tried to learn more. What she discovered was a hidden shame that her mother and uncles had been hiding for decades.

“It was a secret in the family,” Handler said. “I never knew, and my cousins never knew, that my mother had a sister and that my grandfather shot and killed her.”

Handler’s search for the truth is now chronicled in a book, “The Secrets They Kept: The True Story of a Mercy Killing That Shocked a Town and Shamed a Family.”

The book was released last year, but it was only this past month that Handler’s quest to honor her aunt’s memory finally came to a conclusion.

New Online Encyclopedia of Wyoming History


In a day’s drive you can pass near the location of the 1901 murder of 14-year-old Willie Nickell at Iron Mountain (supposedly at the hands of Tom Horn), and still spit in the Green River where Major John Wesley Powell launched his famed Green River and Colorado River expedition in 1869.

Or you can spot ruts left by covered-wagons on the Overland Trail north of Baggs, drive by the lot where Thomas Edison participated in an 1878 “eclipse party” in Rawlins, and still make it to the original Fort McKinney site on the Powder River northeast of Kaycee.

“One thing I’ve always loved about history in Wyoming is that it’s so transparent. The landscape, in many ways, is still the way it was years ago,” said Tom Rea, author of several Wyoming history books and former reporter and editor for the Casper Star-Tribune.

For the past couple of years, Rea has been working with historians all over the state to compile an encyclopedia of Wyoming history into a searchable, interactive website, WyoHistory.org. In collaboration with the Wyoming Historical Society and dozens of other organizations, Rea and web designer Steve Foster are making Wyoming history more lively and accessible through web-based tools that allow users to look back in time by searching a topic or clicking on a map or choosing stories from a digital timeline.

Soon, travelers will be able to pick their route through Wyoming based on notable World War II events, or locations highlighting the state’s rich history of mountain men and the fur trade.

“Going to places where something happened is an important way to learn history,” Rea said.

The website includes about 100 encyclopedia- and essay-type articles, edited by Rea and Lori Van Pelt, a writer and historian from Saratoga. Rea said he hopes to add another 200 articles by the end of 2012, setting the foundation for what must be a continually growing archive of Wyoming history.

    The National Parks – Where the Soul of Our Families Are Restored

    Update Oct 2, 2009: Patty and I watched the entire series on PBS. We learned a lot, while bringing back numerous memories of our trips to the National Parks scattered around the United States. Thanks, Ken Burns, PBS, et al…

    Patty and I spent a couple hours this evening watching The National Parks: America’s Best Idea 1851-1890 – The Scripture of Nature – directed by Ken Burns and co-produced by Dayton Duncan. What a treat. This was only Part 1, and it covered the establishment of Yosemite, and Yellowstone National Parks, also touching on the creation of Sequoia National Park and the General Grant National Park. Much of the film dealt with John Muir, who had such an influence on our park system.

    You might wonder what National Parks have to do with family history. The National ParksWell, think about it. These parks have played a huge part for our American families for nearly a century and a half. It’s where our families, and those of our parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents went for relaxation and appreciation of nature’s beauty. The parks have been a place where our souls were restored, giving us the strength to go back to our toil – until we could return.

    I grew up at the base of Mt. Rainier near the town of Orting, Washington. Mt. Rainier was one of those areas to which John Muir was attracted. In 1991, we bought a home on the Nisqually River, just outside the Paradise entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park. During my first 43 years of living in Washington State, I spent many happy hours hiking and climbing throughout the area, first with my parents and church friends, and later with my own family and climbing buddies. I’ve climbed the mountain itself a couple times and scared myself silly on a few of the crags scattered throughout the park. The memories made during those sojourns are imprinted on my mind – and those of my family.

    PBS has established a remarkable website to go with the series. If awards are given out for fantastic websites, this one surely should take top honors. It’s extremely detailed and it looks to me like it touches on just about everything that’s covered in the film itself.

    The program tonight was only the first of six in the series, so we’re looking forward to many more fascinating hours taking in the wonders of America’s National Park System.
