Ep. 149 - The Crime of the Century

Mar 08, 01:45 AM
Throughout the annals of true crime you'll often hear certain murders being described as "The Crime of the Century". Back in 1924, the press dubbed the kidnapping and murder of a 14 year old boy named Bobby Franks with that title. But what was especially unusual about the crime wasn't the murder itself. But rather, the two suspects the police arrested. They were a couple of wealthy 19 year old college students named Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, and when they confessed to the crime they shocked the nation by telling everyone they had done it simply for the thrill of it all.
