In May of 1924, two people carried out what would be called the crime of the century. They methodically planed the kidnapping of Bobby Franks, the son of an extremely wealthy Chicago family. To everyone, this seemed like it was going to be an easy solve. The kidnappers give a ransom. The family leaves the money in the drop location. The kidnappers let the kid go. Then the cops swoop in and grab the kidnappers as they are picking up the money. But, this would turn out to be a completely different story.
