That would have been little Charlie, whose eight-year-old sister tried to help the investigators find the man she said she had seen fleeing from their apartment building.

I gather there were two successful murders, one attack in which the child was seriously wounded, and a few foiled abductions that may or may not have been related. Amazing how time buries news that once was very widely known...

Hard to imagine that this guy did all this and then quit but I guess anything is possible.

Not only the murders but all the letter writing as well.

I should get back to ferreting out at least the links to the articles on these cases. The suspects were interesting, apparently one guy even confessed, though the belief later was that he was innocent.

As for the letters supposedly written by this perp, the story that a convict was hired to write them on prison stationery is one of the more interesting aspects of the case. The crude drawings on some letters may recall some hoaxed "JTR" missives-- but apparently was also a trademark of The Black Hand, as I've learned.

I've found one article from 1915 that was critical of the typical police interrogation tactics. In the course of the article, the author mentions the case of the murder of "Old Shakespeare" (Carrie Brown), and how the search for justice then was poorly served.
Interesting how all of these searches seem to intertwine, sometimes.
