Murder in Pennsylvania

Classification: Query
I am looking for information regarding a possible murder that took place in PA, more than likely continues to be unsolved after over a century. According to my great-grandmother, her husband, who she knew as Mack Matthews, admitted to murdering his father because he was abusive towards his mother. My great-grandfather was mulatto. His father was White and his mother was of Black/Indian ancestry. If this made it into the papers, more than likely it would have been printed as a black man having murdered a white man. The area where this was to have taken place, according to my great-uncle, who actually travelled with him, was the Easton, PA area. This would have taken place prior to 1900. Afterwards, it is believed he traveled to Fulton,KY which is listed as his place of birth. I believe this to be a cover up. If anyone has heard stories about a grandfather or greatgrandfather having been murdered by his son please contact me. I know this is a long shot but I'm at my wits end.
thanks
