This So Complex a Crime That It Really Requires a Program To Follow

 Chippewa Falls, Wisc. (1939)

12/09/1939: In a remarkably complex story, the murder attempted to borrow $2,000 from a savings & loan.  After he was rejected, he planned the kidnapping of the loan officer’s grandson; he still had a ransom note in his pocket demanding $40,000 in ransom.  The murderer robbed a gas station, injuring the attendant and two customers.  Then he murdered what might have been an accomplice, his wife, their son, and his parents-in-law, burned down the house, and committed suicide.
