New in Audio -- Killer of Her Husband's Secretary: The 1935 Love Triangle Ire of Etta Reisman (A Historical True Crime Short)





From R. Barri Flowers, an award-winning criminologist and best-selling author of Murder of the Horse Trainer’s Rival, Murderess on the Loose, Murder at the Pencil Factory, and Murder of the Doctor’s Wife, comes the thought-provoking new historical true-crime audio short, Killer of Her Husband’s Secretary: The 1935 Love Triangle Ire of Etta Reisman.

On the morning of August 14, 1935, Virginia Seigh, an attractive 23-year-old secretary, was shot and killed as she stood in the driveway of a home in Queens, New York. Her murderer was Mrs. Etta Reisman, the 35-year-old wife of Arthur Reisman, a 42-year-old well-to-do owner of a beauty salon chain.

The previous day, Reisman had confessed to his wife he had fallen in love with Miss Seigh - his secretary, who had resided with the Reismans for seven years - and wanted a separation. This did not set well with Etta, who felt totally betrayed by her husband and their house guest, causing her to snap and go on a shooting frenzy.

Along with Reisman himself, also witnessing the shocking homicide was his daughter from an earlier marriage, Annette Reisman. The 23-year-old was injured when she attempted to take the gun from the unhinged shooter.

Etta Reisman was arrested and charged with murder in this classic case of a love triangle that ended tragically for all parties concerned. The embittered wife turned vengeful killer was convicted of the crime of violence, resulting in a stunning and controversial action the judge set in motion.

The heartbreaking tale of Etta Reisman has endured through the decades as, sadly, many others have followed the same path of jealous rage as an often impulsive and deadly response to being wronged, paying an even greater price themselves in the final analysis
.
Bonus material includes a chapter from the author’s best-selling true-crime work Serial Killer Couples and excerpts from the author’s true-crime anthologies Murder and Menace and Murder Chronicles.

New in Audio from R. Barri Flowers, Murder of the U.S. Attorney: Congressman Sickles’ Crime of Passion in 1859



Award-winning criminologist R Barri Flowers, best-selling author of Murder at the Pencil Factory, delivers again in the gripping new historical true-crime audio short, Murder of the U.S. Attorney: Congressman Sickles’ Crime of Passion in 1859
On February 27, 1859, Philip Barton Key II, the 40-year-old US attorney for the District of Columbia, was gunned down while standing in Lafayette Square, a public park across from the White House. His killer was Rep. Daniel Sickles, a 39-year-old New York congressman and lawyer who had a striking young wife, Teresa Sickles, with whom Key had been having an affair.
Upon discovering his wife's infidelity, Sickles became enraged and had the deadly encounter with her suitor. Afterward, he surrendered to authorities, confessed, was charged with murder, and went to trial.
In spite of the cold-blooded and premeditated nature of the attack, Sickles used a defense of temporary insanity for his actions, the first such time this type of legal defense was employed in the US. He was acquitted as a result and the "temporarily insane" justification for homicide or other serious intimate-involved offenses became a common defense for so-called crimes of passion.
Sickles, who was no stranger to public scandals and controversy, was able to effectively get away with murder. He would reconcile with his wife for a short time, continue a career in politics, and become a decorated soldier for the Union Army during the Civil War and a diplomat before dying in his 90s.
His long life aside, taking the life of his wife's lover, Philip Key, in a fit of jealousy would forever remain a major part of Daniel Sickles' legacy, as chronicled in this compelling trip back in time of more than 150 years.
Bonus material includes a complete historical true-crime short, Dead at the Saddleworth Moor, and excerpts from the author's best-selling true-crime anthologies, The Dreadful Acts of Jack the Ripper and Murder and Menace: Riveting True Crime Tales, Vol. Three.

New True Crime Short in Audio, Murder of the Horse Trainer's Rival, by Bestselling Author R. Barri Flowers






From R. Barri Flowers, award-winning criminologist and the best-selling author of Murdered by the King of Western Swing, Murder at the Pencil Factory, Murder of the Doctor's Wife, and Murder During the Chicago World's Fair, comes the riveting historical true crime short Murder of the Horse Trainer's Rival: The Bitter Breakup of Buddy Jacobson and the Model.


On August 6, 1978, firefighters discovered the charred remains of a body inside a wooden crate, set ablaze in an empty lot in the Bronx, New York. The male decedent had been worked over, stabbed, and shot multiple times. The victim was identified as John "Jack" Tupper, a restaurateur, age 34. His killer turned out to be 48-year-old Howard "Buddy" Jacobson, who at one time was the country's leading Thoroughbred horse trainer. The shocking act of violence was the result of a classic love triangle turned deadly.


The woman caught between the two men was an attractive 23-year-old fashion model and cover girl named Melanie Cain, who had recently started living with Tupper in his 84th Street penthouse apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. She had previously lived in the adjoining suite with Jacobson for a number of years before moving out.


After being convicted of Tupper's murder in 1980, Buddy Jacobson made a daring escape from custody, fleeing across the country to California with his new girlfriend, a 22-year-old model named Audrey Barrett. The convicted murderer stayed on the lam for several weeks before being captured to carry out his sentence for the death of Jack Tupper.


The stunning tale of Jacobson's meteoric rise and fall in horse training and subsequent romantic involvement with someone less than half his age, ending up in a tragic crime of passion, had all the makings of an ill-fated contemporary melodrama, except that it occurred on a real-life stage as a sad true event.


Includes a complete bonus true crime short, Murder of the Banker's Daughter, and more!
