Cops tried to pin blame on victim, bungled investigation in 1917 Manhattan disappearance

Via the NY Daily News:  “A century ago this winter, Ruth Cruger walked away from her family’s Claremont Ave. apartment in Morningside Heights with a pair of ice skates dangling over her shoulder.” This 1917 Justice Story, which appeared in the September 25th edition of the New York Daily News, is chronicled in the new book Undisclosed Files of the Police.  Order a copy here: http://amzn.to/2cDuOUW

NYC Bomber Eludes the Police for 16 years

undisclosed-files-of-the-policeVia the NYPost.com September 25th, 2016:

“The story of George Metesky — who planted at least 33 pipe bombs, from Penn Station to Radio City, injuring 15 people between 1940 and 1956 — is just one of 85 local true-crime tales in “Undisclosed Files of the Police: Cases from the Archives of the NYPD from 1831 to the Present” (Black Dog & Leventhal). Out Tuesday, the book is co-authored by Philip Messing, a crime reporter for The Post; Bernard J. Whalen, an NYPD lieutenant; and retired NYPD detective Robert Mladinich.”

This case was the first time the NYPD utilized a “profiler” in an attempt to identify the suspect.
