The Legend of Lavina Fisher

Websters dictionary definition of the word Legend says : a traditional story sometimes popularly regarded as historical but is  unauthenticated. Being a historical true crime podcast, so many times the stories we tell are mired in a century old game of telephone somewhere in the story is the truth, sadly tho we never know how much of the truth of the story gets documented and shared, particularly when we talk about something that happened 200 years ago. This weeks episode is a story that exemplifies that, The legend of Lavina FIsher is so old  its hard to know what is true and what parts just became a camp fire story.
