Blanche Lamont
Birth: 1875
Winnebago County
Illinois, USA
Death: Apr. 3, 1895
Mission District
San Francisco County
California, USA

Murder victim. Blanche was killed by Theo Durrant in the famous case of "murder in the belfry." He lured her into the Emannuel Baptist Church, where he was a prominent member, and strangled her to death in the belfry tower. Her body wasn't discovered until 10 days later when the body of Theo's other victim, Minnie Williams, was found in a closet in the church library. Theo was tried for both murders and was hanged in San Quentin on January 7, 1898. (bio by: Karen Valentine)
