The Claypool Hotel in Indianapolis once received powerful politicians and even President Lincoln in 1861, when it was the Bates House. However in the years that followed it could not escape the stigma of murder that stained it luxurious and upscale reputation. In August 1943, Maoma Little Ridings was brutally killed on the seventh floor of the Claypool Hotel. Her assailant was never apprehended. In July 1954 the body of a brunette was found stuffed into a dresser drawer located in Room 665 of the hotel.
