From the Paper:

"Flannery O'Connor's "A Good Man is Hard to Find" is a poignant story of the cold-blooded murder of a family of a Georgian man Bailey, his wife, a new born baby, and two children: John-Wesley and June Star; and, Bailey's mother. The killers are: a possible serial killer known as the Misfit, and two accomplices, Bobby Lee and Hiram all three escaped convicts. What deepens the poignancy is that as each member of the family is shot, the others are aware of the tragedy slowly befalling them."
