This is Mayfield, Kentucky's oldest unsolved mystery. In 1921, there was a fire at the Drew family house where a party was going on. The visiting family was the Lawrence family. It was later testified in court that gunshots were heard just before the fire, and it immediately turned into a murder mystery. Both the Lawrence family and the Drew family died in the fire(11 people all together.) The bodies were so badly burned that they were all piled into one casket and buried in the same grave.
