AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

An Unlikely Suspect, from The Perfect Crime

  • Aired: 02/09/2016

  • Rating: NR
In May 1924, police only had a few clues to point them towards the murderer of 14-year-old Bobby Franks. A pair of glasses found at the scene led them to 19-year-old Nathan Leopold. An intelligent young man from an influential family, Leopold was not a likely suspect -- at first. "The Perfect Crime" premieres Feb. 9 at 9/8c on PBS American Experience.
