One of the most talked about and analyzed crimes of the 1920's was the murder of young Bobby Franks by wealthy Chicago men Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb who did it for the simple reason of the wanted to see if they could get away with it. The perfect crime deteriorated when police used modern CSI type tactics to piece together who the murderers were. The nation was captivated by every aspect of the crime and trial, as evidenced by this photo of the two murderers leaving court. One of the best out there and a very rare original from the International News and stamped on the back with a paper caption as well that was issued in 1936 after Richard Loeb had been murdered in jail. Condition and quality are outstanding.
