Annotation The murder of a beautiful prostitute, Helen Jewett, on a cold spring morning in 1836 became the most infamous murder case of its day and illuminated the thriving illicit sex trade in New York City. The trial attended by 20 reporters and about 6000 spectators ended in the acquittal of the accused despite overwhelming evidence and made celebrities of the attorneys and witnesses. This brilliant reconstruction of detection and social history resembles the tabloid murders and trials of today. .
