A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring one of history’s most baffling murder mysteries.
Vivian Gordon’s Final Caper
Though the body was found in the Bronx, Episode 228 is a dark, twisting ride to the seedy side of Broadway near the end of Prohibition, with a heavy dose of family drama swirling around a tale teeming with underworld villainy and police corruption. There were plenty of people with a motive to murder Vivian Gordon. Was it the cops? The crooks? Or some combination thereof? It’s a stumper.
Told from the historic pages of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and other newspapers of the era.
