Real Name: William Faulkner
Case: Historical Mystery
Details: William Cuthbert Faulkner was born in New Albany, Mississippi, on September 25, 1897. He was an American writer and Nobel Prize laureate. Faulkner worked in a variety of media; he wrote novels, short stories, a play, poetry, essays and screenplays during his career. He is primarily known and acclaimed for his novels and short stories, many of which are set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County, a setting Faulkner created based on Lafayette County, where he spent most of his life, and Holly Springs/Marshall County.
In 1921, he was accused of blowing up a store in New York City. In court, he was found not guilty, but suspicion continues as to whether he committed the crime or not.
