Name of Event: The Enduring Mystery of The Overlook and the Unsolved
Murder of William Lowe Rice
In August of 1910, William Lowe Rice, a founder of the now world
renowned law firm of Jones Day, was murdered walking home from a game
of golf. Not even Pinkerton Detectives could solve this crime.
Set against the backdrop of glorious Cleveland Heights in the early
1900s, this story of wealth, power and beautiful costumes rivals
Downton Abbey. Mr. Rice's widow went on to be presented at Court to
King George V in the 1920s.
A true “whodunit,” this mystery remains unsolved to this day.
