Exclusive Fascinating Photos of the Crime Museum of the Police College.
New York -- New York policemen are taught the complex art and science of detection in the now famous Police College instituted by Grover Whalen a few years ago. The Crime Museum of the Police College houses all sorts of evidence used in connection with murder cases, as well as a varied assortment of weapons used by gangsters and killers. A whole mystery story in one picture - the fantastic weapon of The Horseshoe Murder. The implement is a baseball bat with two horseshoes attached. The murderer's idea was to smash the skull of his victim leaving the impression of the horseshoe, so that police would believe the poor fellow had been kicked to death by a horse. (1930)
