|Title||Crime scene investigation, Bremerton, 1934 |
|Caption||In March 1934, a bungled robbery resulted in the murder of six people on Erland's Point near Bremerton, Washington. The crime took place in Frank and Anna Flieder's beach house where guests had gathered for the weekend. Sensational publicity snarled the investigation for months until a barmaid confessed to being a reluctant accomplice to Leo Hall, an ex-fighter. Hall was convicted of the crime and sentenced to death in 1936. |
This photo shows detectives searching for clues while investigating the murders of six people. Two men in hats, one with a flashlight, kneel to get a closer look at a mark on the base of a door.
