States: Mississippi: Bolivar
Looking for information on the murder of Sam Kabakoff, age 17, who was a Russian Jew immigrant, arriving in the States around 1904. Somehow he made it to Mississippi to work with his brothers and cousins. His brothers came home from work and found him Strangled on about June 20, 1909. The Bolivar Commercial only has papers back to 1920 (Ice storm got the ones prior to this), so they are out. I will try to see what the library has, but if anyone knows about this murder or has any suggestions how I can find out more, I would appreciate it. He slipped in between the 1900 Census, coming here in 1904, and died before the 1910 Census. I don't know if the police department would help me with this or not.
