Frozen to Death on Pikes Peak: A Cold Case Investigation
a Pikes Peak Library District, Video Production Center film
Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the alleged deaths of Willis and Sallie Skinner, Pikes Peak Library District’s Kaitlin Hoke and Katie Rudolph will involve you in solving the mystery of a photo postcard labeled, “Frozen to Death on Pike’s Peak Aug. 21, 1911.”
Was someone really frozen on the Peak during the middle of the summer? Was the picture-postcard real, or was it a hoax? Kaitlin and Katie analyze the evidence as their investigation takes you through their research to solve the case. Come to the premier of the film and decide for yourself if the card was a morbid joke, or if it documented a real freak tragedy.
Please join us for the film’s premiere on Saturday, August 20, 2011.
