Thur. Sept. 19, Why Should the Woman Always Have to Pay: Unsolved Murders in SD

Woman-Carrico-2019The Ocean Beach Historical Society presents:
Why Should the Woman Always Have to Pay: Unsolved Murders in SD,
by Author Richard Carrico
Thurs., Sept. 19, 7 PM at Water’s Edge Faith Community 1984 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., O.B.
Richard L. Carrico will take the Ocean Beach Historical Society and guests back to 1923 to delve into the mysterious unsolved murder of Fritzi Mann, local dancer and actress. “Found dead on the beach at Torrey Pines, Fritzi showed evidence of blunt force trauma but died from drowning. In addition the autopsy report noted that she was in a:
delicate condition.”
The police hauled in several suspects including a Hollywood producer, wealthy businessmen, and Louis Jacobs, a medical doctor from the Army base at Camp Kearny. Jacobs stood trial twice for the murder but ultimately got a verdict of not guilty.
To this day the case remains unsolved, but Carrico has a theory about who the murderer was. Using trial transcripts, sometimes lurid newspaper accounts, and other historical documents, Carrico will sit us in the jury box and present the Fritzi Mann case, and let you decide for yourself. Not content to only look at one murder case? Excellent. Richard will touch on three others from 1931 that also remained unsolved.
Please join us September 19th as Richard Carrico unveils the details of these murder mysteries! This OBHS program is FREE!
