Fred Burke Jail Ledger

Fred Killer BurkeFor many years, handwritten ledgers were used for inmate booking and releases. Several of these old ledgers were stored in a secluded and possibly forgotten part of the building. Some ledgers even dated back to the mid and late 1800s. Berrien County Sheriff's Office Historian and 911 Supervisor Chriss Lyon uncovered these ledgers with one in particular linking the Berrien County Sheriff’s Office with the infamous St. Valentines Day Massacre.
