Walking in the Footsteps of Leopold and Loeb

That's Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, the two wealthy University of Chicago students who, were arrested, tried, and convicted for the kidnapping and murder 14-year-old Bobby Franks, a resident of Chicago's Kenwood neighborhood. The murder was dubbed "The Crime of the Century" because of the rationale the killers gave for their actions--namely, that they wanted to plan and execute the perfect crime. This Pocket Guide to Hell tour takes patrons down a macabre memory lane by visiting the site of the kidnapping, as well as the homes of both victim and killers.
