In 1924, she was 54 years old when in May, wealthy college students Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb kidnapped and killed 14 year old Robert Franks "in the interest of science". Leopold and Loeb thought that they were intellectually superior and that they could commit the perfect crime and not be caught.

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