Why Should the Woman Always Have to Pay: Unsolved Murders in SD,
by Author Richard Carrico, Sept. 19, 2019
Richard L. Carrico presented four unsolved murders, including the 1923 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. 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 Camp Kearny Army Base. Jacobs stood trial twice for the murder but ultimately got a verdict of not guilty.This cases remains unsolved, but Carrico gave a theory about who the murderer was.
Using trial transcripts, sometimes lurid newspaper accounts, and other historical documents, Carrico presented three others cases from 1931 that also remained unsolved.
