Amos Lunt hanged twenty men, some of the wildest men in the wild west. Their ghosts paid him back by tormenting him in his sleep. This is the true story of the “Hangman of San Quentin” told by true crime author Tobin T. Buhk. Learn about the strange twist of fate that transformed a relatively unknown prison guard into an infamous executioner, go behind the scenes inside San Quentin State Prison’s death chamber, eavesdrop on a hanging, meet the hangman, and discover the shocking secret that led to his eventual demise.
This is a virtual event hosted by the Anne T. Kent California Room.
