The Chaplain, Capote And Passing Of An Era

Kansas City, Kansas – November 15th, 1959, two former convicts from Kansas State Penitentiary killed the Herbert Clutter family near Holcomb, Kansas in a failed robbery. The story became internationally known through the Truman Capote book, In Cold Blood. Barely a month before the 50th anniversary of the murders, one of the last remaining key characters in those events died. KCUR's Dan Verbeck knew him and recounts some of the life of James E.E. Post.
