Photo Details

A photo of Otto Frank Miller, "Frank", at the Red River Carnival. One of two of a series of last photos taken before he was murdered by Albert E. Lary. Edit--Ok. Wow. I didn't think this photo would get any likes or comments. You people surprised me. Frank is my Great Grand Uncle. His brother, Hugh is my Great Grandfather. To answer the questions, this is one of those carnival photos. He was a mechanic in real life. Mr. Lary was arrested and spent a few years in jail. There was a trial. I've seen Lary's testimony on Justia website (Lary vs. state of Oklahoma). The girlfriend took her father's side on the stand. Friends of the girl took Frank's side. Trial records can be found at the Marshal County Courthouse in Oklahoma. I cannot comment on the Lary family or tell my opinions on Albert and the trial. Sorry.

Literally every single person in town took Frank's side, including friends of the girl. I've seen the court records. They're at the Marshal County Courthouse in Oklahoma.

You mean he wasn't a real cowboy? He could pass for Roy Rogers. Very good looking.

Great photo. Thanks for sharing. My family has a similar story of my great grandfather being murdered. The killer was let go because my great grandfather was known to be a mean person. Anyway, thanks again for sharing your family photo.
