In 1924, two University of Chicago students killed a 14-year-old boy “for the thrill of it.”

In 1924, two University of Chicago students killed a 14-year-old boy “for the thrill of it.” The two killers, Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb have long been remembered as intellectuals who murdered as a type of science experiment. Leopold and Loeb were actually budding serial killers with a violent, sadistic past. During the trial, both the prosecution and defense agreed to keep quiet about these crimes. Author Emilie Lucchesi shared details about this little-known and chilling story about two serial killers who passed as normal in 1920s Chicago.
