Thread Name: History: Tom Dooley didn't kill Laura Foster?!?
Subject: RE: Tom Dooley didn't kill Laura Foster?!?
According to the article, JohnGray, she got herself cured, which is how anybody found out that anybody had it. Also, Morticia, in the ballad about Tom Dula, they mention the name of the vic, Laura Foster. I always figured he killed her for being pregnant when he didn't want to get married... like all the other murder ballads of that type.
