Tragic Bombing incident In Marshall


In August of 1967, a bomb was sent through the mail and was delivered to the downtown diner, the Tasty Café. The package exploded in the hands of Nola Puyear, who, along with her husband, Paul, owned the diner. The explosion blew Nola to bits in front of Paul and several other witnesses, who, surprisingly, were relatively unharmed. Author Blaine Pardoe researched the event and wrote the book "Secret Witness: The Untold Story of the 1967 Bombing in Marshall, Michigan."
