Local Author to Discuss Mysterious Crimes in Davidson County
September 22, 2018
Piedmont Crossing invites the community to hear local author and historian Christopher Yarbrough speak about the 1942 events surrounding the death of Thomasville Police Officer, George Kemp and the 1938 crime scene of the City Quick Lunch Café’s operator, Gus “ the Greek” Koniavitis on Tuesday, September 25 at 2pm on the campus of the retirement community.
Christopher Yarbrough, a 1987 graduate of High Point College, moved to Thomasville in 1995 and began hearing stories about mysterious crimes in Davidson County including the one about a haunted elevator in Thomasville City Hall, previously First National Bank, and the unresolved disappearance and death of Thomasville Patrolman George Arnold Kemp. Yarbrough decided to research the incident and spent countless hours reviewing archives. In 2011 Yarbrough authored a novel, “In Summons to the Past,” exploring this historical crime based on a true story in Davidson County.
The public is invited to meet the author and learn about his research into these cases. To register your attendance, please contact Blair White at [email protected] or 336.474-3605.
