This Day In History: 1930-08-06

1930: In the most famous disappearance case in American history, New York State Supreme Court Judge Joseph Force Crater steps into a taxi in New York and disappears, never to be seen again. “Whatever happened to Judge Crater?” and to “pull a Judge Crater” soon became part of the American lexicon. Long considered an unsolved case, in 2005 letters were found from NYPD detective Robert Good, which stated that Crater was killed by Charles Burns, an NYPD officer working under the orders of Abe Reles, a Jewish mobster who was the main “enforcer” for the Jewish organized hit squad called “Murder, Incorporated.”
