Grace Brown told Chester Gillette that she was pregnant she hoping they would marry but Gillette took her on a trip to the Adirondack Mountains. Gillette took Brown out in a rowboat on Big Moose Lake, where he clubbed her with his tennis racket and left her to drown. He returned alone and laid low at his hotel. Brown's bruised and beaten body was found at the bottom of the lake the next day. On March 30, 1908, Chester Gillette was the FIRST man in AMERICA executed in the electric chair.
