    @Hants June 8, 2017 at 9:54 AM “Infamous Bajan from 1914.”
    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/justice-story/wright-mare-massacre-frank-lloyd-home-article-1.1591522

    “They’d better let me live if they expect to find out something.”

    There was no trial. Carlton lived for only seven and a half more weeks, without uttering a meaningful word about the motive behind his rampage. All kinds of theories emerged. Some said that racial slurs tossed at Carlton by Brodelle had sparked the killer’s rage, while some speculated that it all had happened because Mamah had fired the Carltons. Others tried to put the blame on Wright, hinting that the massacre was a murder-for-hire arranged by the architect to rid himself of an unwanted lover. ”

    Questions: Why blame anybody except the only black foreign man who was present? Mr. Carlton had no reason to get rid of the Wright family and servants. Wright however the man of many children and even more women may well or may have wanted to rid himself of some of this “baggage.” Or he may have had enemies, perhaps many enemies,

    Please note that the house was rebuild, but burned down again 11 years later (Mr. Carlton was long dead by then). Am I the only one who thinks it very strange that the alomst new house of America’s most storied architect had bad electrical wiring? And by the way it was claimed that hundreds of thousands of art was destroyed in that second fire. I wonder was an insurance claim made?

    Something about this story doesn’t sit right with me. Bajans then or now are not known as mass murderers, especially the mass murderers of virtual strangers (he had only worked for the family for a few months.)

    But the mass murder of strangers? That strikes me as a very American thing to do.

    Maybe one of these days a scholar will discover the truth.
