Welcome listener. I have a special two-part series in store for you. For this episode we cover the players. Those involved. It’s an older story, with it’s murder taking place in 1924. At the time it was called The Crime of the Century, with a trial the likes the world had never seen; it was a full-blown media spectacle. This is the story of the “perfect crime” of the unfortunate victim caught up in a senseless scheme. This is the story of Leopold and Loeb.
