Kansas history: 1941 - 1971

Herbert and Bonnie Clutter and their children Nancy and Kenyon are shown in undated photos. The family was murdered in their Holcomb home in November 1959 in the case that became famous as the subject of Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood." Their killers, Perry Smith and Richard Hickock, were hanged at Lansing Correctional Facility, known then as the Kansas State Penitentiary.
