In the early 20th century, Nora began her life as the daughter of an
educated, oil tycoon by the name of Cordell S. Williams. Business demands
would prevent Cordell from having anymore children. Nora was only child.
Nora was cordell’s pride and joy. Nora got whatever she wanted. Mr.
Williams would eventually lose his wealth as the markets crashed in the
year 1913. Broke and unemployed, Cordell turned to a life of crime, going
by the gangster alias of Snakeskin Willie. In 1915, Snakeskin Willie was the
perpetrator of the London Heights Trust heist, the biggest bank heist of the
century. Shortly after the great London Heights caper, pictures of
Snakeskin Willie’s infamous mug could be seen on every street post, every
church and synagogue, every grocery store and every dank and sleazy,
sin-filled establishment throughout the dregs of all major cities in the area.
It was at this time that Willie decided to move his family out to the western

At the age of 18, at a countryside family gathering Nora was
introduced to a twenty five year old man by the Name of Torvald Helmer.
Torvald was a strapping young fellow who was a man on the rise. Torvald
abruptly gained Willie’s respect and adoration they spent much time
together on the farm, hunting or fishing. Torvald became a highlight of
every conversation at the dinner table.
In 1922, Torvald confessed to Snakeskin about his undying love for
Nora. Happily and without question, Snakeskin allowed torvald to take and
marry his only daughter. Shortly after the marriage, while shopping for
supplies in town, Snakeskin noticed a mysterious looking stranger, wearing
a brown coat and hat and lurking in the shadows. Attempting to make a
swift exit, Snakeskin was caught off guard as another shadowy figure was
already anticipated Snakeskin’s entry into his green, model A, Chevy
pickup. Hours later Snakeskin’s body...
