Jennie Cramer

Jennie Cramer was a beautiful working-class woman, "The Belle of New Haven," from Connecticut. She was raped and murdered in 1881. Although Cramer's body was found floating in the Sound, she had not drowned and arsenic was found in her stomach. The story exploded into a media circus and appeared repeatedly on the front page of the "New York Times." Two men and one woman were arrested and tried in 1882. After less than an hour of deliberation, the jury acquitted them.
