Meyer Luckman was convicted of beating and strangling his brother-in-law, Samuel Druckman, to death. Two other men were involved in the murder, including Meyer's brother Harry. The scene of the crime was a garage in Brooklyn from which the Luckman's ran a very profitable flour trucking business. A German-Jewish family, they dominated the flour industry in Brooklyn in the mid 1930s. My e-book looks at the Druckman case which was used as a political football in the 1935 New York City elections. The media coverage and intensity of the stories nearly cost a district attorney his office.
