    This is the first full-length treatment of this story I have ever read. It is a marvel of honesty, indignation at debauchery, and as clear an indictment of the Deicide, as I have ever read.

    Coming as it does in Holy Week, when true Christians remember and call to God for vengeance over the killing of Christ by the ‘perfidious Jews,’ this modern day martyrdom is a call for righteousness once more to be the hallmark of White America, and for the Law of God to reign once more, supreme over the land.

    Deo Volente!

    On April 26, 1913, 13-year-old Mary Phagan was found dead in an Atlanta pencil factory, beaten, bludgeoned, raped/sodomized.

    Mary Phagan was discovered at Sunday morning, April 27, 1913, at 3:20 AM by Newt Lee, the Night watch (night witch).

    If you mean Mary Phagan was ‘killed’, the correct time she was killed was between “12:05 and 12:10 PM, maybe 12:07 PM” on Saturday, April 26, 1913. See State’s Exhibit B.

    Correction #2:

    you said “Little Mary was an attractive white, Christian girl who earned a weekly wage of $1.20 putting erasers on pencils.”

    Actually Mary Phagan earned $4.05 a week for a 55 hour week, she made 7.5 cents an hour (actually her exact pay was 7 and 4/11 cents an hour). The reason Mary Phagan only made $1.20 that week, is because the metal had run out and she had been laid off on Monday. The work week cycle was Thursday to Thursday.

    Correction #3:

    You said, “One Saturday when the factory was calm due to a town parade (Confederate Memorial Day), Mary visited it one last time to retrieve her paycheck from Frank at his request.”

    The factory was not calm due to the Memorial Day parade, it was closed down as it was a state holiday. Mary Phagan, didn’t visit it one last time, because she was temporarily laid off, your sentence sounds as if she was getting her last paycheck because she wasn’t going to be coming back. The layoff was temporary. Her murder made it permanent.

    Correction #4:

    you said, “and bite marks covering her skin.”

    No where in the 2,500 pages of surviving legal documents (1913 to 1915, 1983, 1986) does it mention anywhere that Mary Phagan had bite marks on her. No where in any newspapers (1913 to 1915) does it mention Mary Phagan had bite marks on her. None of the Autopsy reports from the Defense and prosecution doctors mentions any bite marks on Mary Phagan. THe bite marks was a hoax or fabrication.

    Shall I continue correcting your report?

    You said, “Frank’s mother would stand up and slur Dorsey as a “Christian dog.”

    actually it was Leo Frank’s wife Lucille Selig Frank that did that, not Leo Frank’s mother Ray Jacobs Frank.

    Does it strike anybody else as odd that a large group of men would go to the trouble of lynching a man thought locally to be a terrible criminal — and then cover his face up with a rag ? Were they hoping nobody would notice who was dangling there ? Were they trying to preserve his modesty ?

    How did anybody know it was Leo Frank ? You cannot tell by the photos I’ve seen. How could the crowd know for sure ?

    Could it be this was not Frank’s body ?

    Another question I’ve wondered about. Was it a total coincidence that all the members of the prison board were at the prison when Frank was sprung ? I’ve read books that indicate those guys would let anybody out if the price was right. Were they all there for a payoff ? Who would have paid them ? Surely not the “lynchers”.

    Another thing that puzzles me. Reading newspapers of the day following the lynching, one reporter who was there mentions “bullet holes” in hanged man’s chest.

    BTW I grew up in Marietta. My first wife (circa 1960s) was the grand daughter of one of the men Steve Oney claims was one of the lynchers. That old gentleman never gave me the impression he’d hurt anybody.

    It’s a shame they can’t bring dirty old Leo Frank back to life,…and hang him again.

    Let’s get this straight – He was not just a run of the mill rapist – he was a sick pedophile preying on the poor children that he employed. He molested MANY children at that factory – and always got away with it,……..except this time.

    They spent a fortune bribing people and suborning perjury,…and he/they almost got away with it.

    I wonder what true value that a ‘hero martyr’ like Leo Frank could possess for the ADL?

    The ADL needs to come clean, admit their mistakes and tell the truth about Mr. Frank,…but then again Mary Phagan was ‘just’ a gentile girl.

    Rest in Peace Mary

      The girl who cracked wide open Leo Frank’s alibi that he never left his office.

      MISS MONTEEN STOVER, sworn for the State.

      I worked at the National Pencil Company prior to April 25th, 1913.
      I was at the factory at five minutes after twelve on that day. I stayed
      there five minutes and left at ten minutes after twelve. I went there to
      get my money. I went in Mr. Frank’s office. He was not there. I didn’t
      see or hear anybody in the building. The door to the metal room was
      closed. I had on tennis shoes, a yellow hat and a brown rain coat. I
      looked at the clock on my way up, it was five minutes after twelve and it
      was ten minutes after twelve when I started out. I had never been in his
      office before. The door to the metal room is sometimes open and some-
      times closed.


      I didn’t look at the clock to see what time it was when I left home or
      when I got back home. I didn’t notice the safe in Mr. Frank’s office. I
      walked right in and walked right out. I went right through into the
      office and turned around and came out. I didn’t notice how many desks
      were in the outer office. I didn’t notice any wardrobe to put clothes in.
      I don’t know how many windows are in the front office. I went through
      the first office into the second office. The factory was still and quiet when
      I was there. I am fourteen years old and I worked on the fourth floor of
      the factory. I knew the paying-off time was twelve o’clock on Saturday
      and that is why I went there. They don’t pay off in the office, you have
      to go up to a little window they open.


      The door to the metal room is sometimes closed and sometimes open.
      When the factory isn’t running the door is closed.

    Here is the solution to the Mary Phagan murder mystery.


    On Monday morning, April 28, 1913, at the police station, Leo Frank told detectives, investigators and his lawyers, that Mary Phagan came into his second floor office on April 26, 1913, between 12:05 and 12:10 PM. The statement was captured by a government stenographer and became State’s Exhibit B at the trial. (do a Google search on: State’s Exhibit B at the Leo M. Frank trial)

    From the day of Leo Frank’s arrest on Tuesday, April 29, 1913, to his trial in the summer of 1913, Leo Frank claimed he never left his second floor office on Confederate Memorial day, April 26, 1913, from Noon to 12:45 PM.

    Star Monteen Stover, a White girl, would testify at the trial that she went to Leo Frank’s office at 12:05 PM and waited there till 12:10 PM on Saturday, April 26, 1913. Monteen Stover was there to collect her pay envelope and found Leo Frank’s office was empty. The defense lawyers never disputed her claim or made any attempt to impeach her as a witness. To make matters even more complicated, Monteen Stover was a positive character witness on behalf of Leo Frank at the trial. Monteen Stover’s testimony had broken Leo Frank’s alibi, leaving him with no choice but to explain why his office was empty between 12:05 and 12:10 PM when he claimed Mary Phagan had arrived.

    On August 18, 1913, Leo Frank made a statement at his trial, countering Monteen Stover’s testimony (about his office being empty on April 26, 1913, between 12:05 and 12:10PM). Leo Frank made a jaw dropping and shocking revelation. Leo Frank said that he might have “unconsciously” gone to the bathroom or that Monteen Stover did not see him in his inner office because the safe door was open and blocking him. Well 5’2″ tall Monteen Stover was taller than the 4 foot tall safe door, meaning that it certainly did not block her from seeing Leo Frank and thus it meant Leo Frank must have been in the bathroom.

    There is only one bathroom on the second floor, it’s in the metal room. One has to physically walk into the metal room and then across within it to the far corner where the unisex bathroom resides.

    In the first three weeks (July 28 to August 18) of the trial, before Leo Frank’s mind bending statement on August 18, 1913, was made, the prosecution tried to convince the Jury Leo M. Frank had murdered Mary Phagan in the metal room between 12:05 and 12:10PM on April 26, 1913.

    Leo Frank’s metal room admission was the equivalent to a murder trial confession.

    That’s the solution to the Mary Phagan murder mystery, Leo Frank made a virtual confession during his trial.

    Leo Frank’s wife Lucille Selig requested cremation in her will, and she was buried with her parents in GA. The grave plot immediately adjacent to the left of Leo M. Frank that was reserved for Lucille Selig is still empty today.

    If you want to read the original 1,800 Georgia Supreme Court case file on Leo M. Frank, it is available on Leo Frank dot Org

    Atlanta Constitution, March 9, 1914, Leo Frank would confirm his August 18, 1913, murder trial confession, by re-affirming he had gone to the bathroom in the metal room when Monteen Stover was waiting for him in his empty office.

    Unbelievable! The Jews still go about spewing their nonsensical “evidence”. Just like the so-called Holocaust. Scandalous!

    Dear Mr.Cohen, just a few comments and observations.

    First, the police investigation of the murder was abysmal, they had tunnel vision, this allowed the real killer to fade in the background.

    Secondly, the door leading from the basement had been forced open from inside, and the staple ripped off with an iron bar and there were several bloody finger marks. This would suggest that the killer made his get away totally unobserved. After Newt Lee had committed the murder he left by the alleyway and went home to clean up and change his shirt. This was the bloody shirt found by the police. Connelly and Frank would not have gone to the trouble of ripping the door off because they were known to be in the factory. Newt Lee probably slept in the factory all night unobserved, he knew every little nook and cranny in the factory where he could snatch a few hours sleep unobserved. Alonzo Mann, if he was telling the truth, obviously was mistaken, it was dark and he mistook Connelly for Lee.
    Thirdly, when Lee found the body he never bent down to examine the corpse but said the woman was white. Only the killer would have known this. When the police arrived they bent down to examine the body but still could not distinguise if she was white or coloured untill they cleaned her up and lowered her stocking. There can be no doubt that Newt Lee Killed Mary Phagan, all the lies told by Connelly and Frank were just red herrings to cast suspicion on each other. The Atlanta police failed to nail the correct villiane because they were convinced the the crime was carried out by someone who was known to be in the factory at the time of the murder.

  17. UPDATE 100 years ago, Georgians fought for the death penalty for molester-killer Leo Frank - John de Nugent

    […] Lasker hired William J. Burns, the world’s highest paid detective for $4,500 (over $100,000 today) to come to Georgia and investigate the case. This coincided nicely with the phrase from Frank’s lips, “The Truth Is on the March,” which began feverishly circulating in headlines. The New York Times dubbed Burns “the greatest detective certainly, and perhaps the only really great detective, the only detective of genius whom this country has produced.”  Burns’ entry into the campaign and his subsequent unscrupulous activities would awaken Tom Watson, a lawyer and a brilliant polemicist who acquired the nickname “The Sage of McDuffle County.” As the editor for The Jeffersonian in Atlanta, Watson spoke for Georgians, the overwhelming majority of whom wanted Frank to hang. As E. Michael Jones writes, “Watson seemed not only capable but willing to articulate the questions on everyone’s mind.” 7 […]
