Scottsdale Stories & Sweets - Part 4

Mystery and Murder in Old Town!


Join us for a unique Scottsdale storytelling session as you nibble on sweet treats from local Old Town business, Sphinx Date Company. Listen as tale teller Bruce Wall covers two of the most notorious murders committed in Old Town Scottsdale. The first story is about a town councilman who was shot to death in his home, but the twists in the story play out like a movie. In the second story, attendees will learn about a 1960s TV star who was murdered in Old Town in the 1970s. Who were the suspects? Was the case ever solved?

Presented by the City of Scottsdale, and Citizen Advisor, Bruce Wall. All ages welcome! Treats available while supplies last.

Enjoy some delicious dates from local Old Town business, Sphinx Date Company (also known as Sphinx Date Ranch), while you listen to the wild tales of murder and mystery that happened in Old Town long ago. Sphinx Date Company has been an Arizona institution for over 70 years and offers fresh locally-sourced dates and edible gifts, with a traditional family approach.
