The Jason Fairbanks Scandal: a Massachusetts Murder Mystery

Join Allison Neff, former program director of the Fairbanks House in Dedham, Mass. on Thurs. October 8 as she tells the intriguing story over Zoom of a murder that rocked the nation in 1801. When beautiful young Elizabeth Fales met with a violent death in Dedham, her boyfriend, Jason Fairbanks, was tried, convicted, and hanged for her murder. But was he, in fact, guilty?  Was this a case of star-crossed lovers or a brutal murder by a scorned suitor? And was Jason even physically capable of committing the crime? A dramatic court case led to a prison break and a nationwide bounty hunt, ending with one of the most widely attended executions in the country. The question of what actually happened echoes to this day.
