I grew up two blocks from this house. Nellie Cropsey owned the house, and was killed on the front porch. The fiancee swore to his execution he was innocent, though they did discover after her murder that she was killed on the front porch and discarded in the river, which is across the street from the house.

Uh no.  That is not what happened.  The "killer" was pardoned and later shot himself.
