From The Salt Lake Herald, April 2, 1893:

Information about Jean (or John) Baptiste and his crimes was scarce and many accounts based on folklore, so it’s difficult to know how much of this article, printed over thirty years after his arrest, is accurate. Utah Gothic has an interesting post about our ghoul here. During research I also found out that a movie, Redemption: For Robbing the Dead, was inspired by Baptiste’s crimes.
