In 1924, in the year that Frances Evelyn Howe was born, in May, wealthy college students Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb kidnapped and killed 14 year old Robert Franks "in the interest of science".

Loeb was eventually killed in prison - Leopold was released after 33 years, dying of a heart attack at age 66.

The Solicitor General became the acting Attorney General and fired the Special Prosecutor (the Saturday Night Massacre). Nixon releases some of the tapes, under extreme pressure because of the firings.
