A True Crime Evening: The Trial and Executions of Florence Lassandro and Emilio Picariello

May 27, 2023, 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

It’s been 100 years since the notorious pair, Florence Lassandro and
Emilio Picariello, were hanged at Fort Saskatchewan’s Provincial Jail (1915-
1988). Tried and convicted for the 1922 death of A.P.P Constable Lawson, their
lives leading up to the crime and their last days are a story filled with community
presence, rum-running, and a blame game. Join us for an evening of food, drink,
and live music of the era and learn all about the rum-running history of the
Crowsnest Pass, the lives of Emilio Picariello and Florence Lassandro, and how
their case became one of the most famous in Alberta.
