The grave of Perry Edward Smith


The grave of Perry Edward Smith sits on a sloping hillside Tuesday at the Mount Muncie Cemetery in Lansing, Kan. Smith and co-defendant Richard Eugene Hickock, the two men who were the subjects of Truman Capote's iconic book "In Cold Blood," were executed in April 1965 at the Kansas State Penitentiary for the killings of four members of the Herbert Clutter family in Holcomb, Kan. A Florida detective wants to exhume their bodies because he believes there’s evidence linking them to similar murders of a Florida family. (AP Photo/John Hanna)
