Annals of Crime #20


Original Caption:

Police are shown carrying out the body of Serge Rubinstein from his Fifth Avenue home where he was found slain today in an upstairs bedroom. Authorities said that the Russian born millionaire appeared to have been strangled. His body was found with hands and feet tied and the mouth taped. It is believed that he died after a "terrific struggle" with an intruder. According to police, "it could have been robbery" but the theory of planned attack was not ruled out. The 46 year old international financier was the central figure of a World War II 'draft dodger' case, and prior to his death had been fighting a deportation order. (1955)
