This week's show has the case of Jennie Becker who disappeared in New York in 1922.  Her husband, Abraham, claims she has run away, but a friend thinks Mrs. Becker was murdered.  You can read about the real case in a book about medical examiners and in a period NY Times article.

As usual with the series, our show was transferred from an original shellac Radio Release, Ltd transcription, pressed by Allied Recording in Hollywood, matrix number A-1080.
