Aunt Teedie's Mysterious Death
My mother was only 8 years old in 1940 when her 23-year-old sister was fatally injured at Tony Cambrioto's Ye Ole Canal Inn along Rt 322 Lewistown Narrows. Tony's was said to be frequented by prominent men of Lewistown who were "stepping out" on their wives. Tony reported that Teedie had fallen down a flight of stairs, but some questioned whether her injuries were consistent with that explanation. My grandmother spent months desperately searching for the truth, and was ultimately left without answers. Read the newspaper clipping above and see if it sounds fishy to you.

- Why wouldn't he give his real name?
- Why couldn't Grandma get a straight answer from anyone?
