Murder, The Only Way Out


Murder, the Only Way Out explores evidence The Boston Globe used in September 7, 1950 to determine a young Boston mother named Martha Fairburn threw her two little boys out her fifth floor apartment window, and then jumped to her own death.

A police report of the same date, which the researcher for this book resurrected from the department’s archives, reveals evidence that could contradict The Globe’s assertion. In her book, June Stephenson brings this evidence to the forefront which indicates that Martha did not murder, but was herself murdered.
