"In March of Nineteen Twenty seven thirty two year old Ruth Snyder and thirty four year old judge gray were arrested for the murder of. Ruth's husband Albert a few weeks later on Monday. April Eighteenth Nineteen twenty seven ruth and Judd's trial for first degree murder commenced thousands of people mob the courthouse hoping to catch a glimpse of the defendants attendees included. Filmmaker D W Griffith who arrived in limousine. He told reporters he was thinking about about directing a movie. Based on the case. So many stars from Broadway and Vaudeville also showed up. That spectators began referring to their seating area. Ask The actors Equity Section representatives from every major newspaper. Were in attendance. They all came to see a show but they may have been disappointed by the initial proceedings before the trial could begin the judge. I had to select an impartial jury. This proved to be a difficult task since the case had already been discussed so much in the press. It had made a strong impression on the public when when the lawyers asked whether the potential jurors had already formed an opinion on the guilt or innocence of the defendants many admitted that they had these individuals. Individuals were excused for bias. This stretch the jury selection process over several days as dozens of prospective jurors were eliminated. The defendants found the process tedious. After the first day Ruth told reporters. I don't understand why they brought me into the courtroom to listen to such a monotonous proceeding. I would like a little excitement to relieve the monotony. But despite Ruth's clear distaste for the selection process the media seemed to blame her for the delays. One reporter suggested that Ruth and her lawyer were trying to fill the jury box with naive. Leave man. Ruth can manipulate and dominate with her willful sexuality Justice shia-dominated Judd Gray Ruth. The publicly rejected that theory. In fact she lamented the fact that under New York law the jury would be comprised solely of men. Women were not allowed to serve in murder trials in response to this ruth commented that a woman could see her side of the case better than a crowd of men by the end of the week. Twelve men were selected. Ruth and Judd could only stare at the faces this of those who had the power to condemn them to death with trial underway. The attorneys began calling witnesses to the stand. Both Ruth and Judd testified at length. They both admitted that they were in the house during the slaying but each blamed the other party for the deed itself both Ruth. Ann Portray themselves as reluctant participants in the murder scheme. It seemed that if they couldn't convince the jury to acquit they the at least hope to receive a lesser verdict of second degree rather than first degree murder then they might escape with a ten to twenty year prison term rather than an execution. The trial concluded on Monday may Ninth Nineteen Twenty seven after eleven days. The jury deliberated rated for only about ninety minutes. They returned with a unanimous verdict finding both defendants guilty of murder. In the first degree the judge sentenced them to death by electrocution as required acquired by law jet remains STOIC. At the news ruth initially collapsed in tears but seemed to recover quickly after the hearing. She asked whether they were permitted to make stops on the way to sing sing. She reportedly said that she liked to take a detour for a lobster. Dinner at her. Favorite roadhouse house. This request was denied the following Monday. She was transported to seeing penitentiary. It was time to leave the county jail ruth felt an aunt sense of nostalgia wash over her at the thought of going away. It could have been worse. This place. She'd found some comforts. At least she tried to look back on the few bright spots over over the last few months she had tamed a mouse that crept into her cell by feeding it crumbs. It struck her funny given how Albert never let her have a pet pat she'd also befriended the jail's chaplain reverend. Father George Murphy. She was sure he would speak well of her to the press and the jail. Matrons matrons were pleasant tour she wished them all goodbye as the deputy sheriff's lead her away outside. It was cloudy Sunshine. Shine might have been nicer but ruth was looking forward to the car right upstate. Climbing into the grey sedan. She could pretend she was going on a lovely trip a vacation away from the city. Crowds reporter surrounded the car calling out their questions asking how she felt. They seem to expect her to cry or whale. They looked eager to see her tears. But Ruth didn't see much point in that anymore anymore. Deputy Sheriff's escorted the prisoners out of the Queen's County jail as they departed noted for seeing seeing ruth seem cheerful. She told reporters she had recently found solace in the Catholic faith she wished to convert the statement and was met with scepticism. Some suggested that ruth was only trying to win sympathy from New York governor. Alfred Smith a Catholic who held the power of granting in her clemency. If this was her motivation it didn't work. Governor Smith Heard Ruth and jets clemency petition but ultimately denied it. Their sentence was to be carried out on January twelfth. Nineteen twenty eight merely ten months after Albert Snyder's murder on the night of the twelfth over forty spectators assembled to view the executions ruth. Snyder was brought in first. Witnesses said that her face was red from crying as she was led to the electric chair and strapped in she repeated. Jesus have mercy on me for I have sinned. One of the witnesses was Tom. Howard a Chicago Tribune photographer? WHO was working with the New York Daily News to preserve the solemnity of the occasion journalists? Were instructed not to bring any cameras but Tom had strapped. A custom made one and shot camera to his ankle the moment the executioner flipped the switch as electronics course through spotty. Tom took his shot. The photograph appeared the next day beneath a one word headline dead. The Macabre image provided a final titillating leading morsel to satisfy the public's morbid interest in the case the daily news normally had a circulation of about one million papers when the photograph ran the day after the execution circulation swelled to one and a half million according to author and research scholar. Landis mackellar it was the largest sale of any single paper on any single day in American history the execution was otherwise uneventful Eventful within minutes ruth was pronounced dead. Judd Gray soon followed her. He remained mostly silent only speaking to utter the twenty Third Psalm before the executioner flipped the switch the Lord. It is my shepherd I shall not want Route Snyder. And Judd Gray died with little drama but this is perhaps typical at executions executions psychologists. Nathan a heff lick a lecturer at the University of Lincoln and the UK studied the last words of the hundreds. It's of death row. Inmates he said when reading these last statements I was expecting to see evidence of fear and panic. I was struck that there. There was very little evidence of this in these statements.

And a two thousand eleven article criminal forensic psychologist Paul G Matuzici wrote about the public's obsession and with violent crime he referred to murder as a most fundamental taboo and also perhaps most fundamental human impulse concluded. We are fascinated because we wonder would. I have felt the same way. Had the same impulse and would I have done the same thing and in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven these questions were compelling enough to turn Albert Snyder's murder into a national sensation in the week after the murder journalist hounded Judd's wife who was still reeling from the news of his arrest. One reporter order even contacted his ten year old daughter school hoping to get an interview with her journalists also sought out. Ruth's mother Granny Brown who eventually chilly gave a press conference to proclaim her daughter innocent ruth herself was bombarded with interview requests. And for the most part she seemed all too happy be to participate in the spectacle. She gamely posed for photographs. Issued statements to the press and agreed to several interviews. Ruth couldn't help feeling a rush of excitement. She had spent so many will years with Albert. Now something different was finally happening to her. People were paying attention to our. They wanted to photograph her and hear her speak. It was like being a movie star. Of course it wasn't all roses but ruth thought that if she had to be accused of murder she might as well find some excitement in it spelt differently however the chastised her telling her to look the part of the grieving widow. They reminded her that her. Our life was on the line. But Ruth didn't want to worry about that and really judge was the one who picked up the window sash and smashed Albert over the head with it. He was the killer not her. Surely the world would see that so ruth allowed herself the small pleasure of being famous right now. It was the only thrill she had although she seemed to enjoy. Enjoy the attention. The Coverage Ruth received from the media was far from sympathetic the Brooklyn Daily Times categorized ruth as a Viking type roofless when opposed a woman cold calculating shrewd and with nerves of iron. A woman who would sacrifice family friends good name and honor to gratify a whim of the flesh a woman with bloodlust in her veins the same newspaper seemed markedly less. Hostile towards Judd. Gray remarking he has the appearance of frailty and to Minniti a glance at the two convinces won that route. Snyder was the ruling spirit. The Dominant Personality Jones Friends and family bolstered this characterisation. Asian calling judd. A naive man led astray by Mercilus. Siren Hanan Gray told the press the woman must have had him hypnotized. ICED JUDD himself blamed his downfall on bad liquor and evil women a- combination too strong for any man Dan. Some reports luridly speculated that Ruth Hadden Snare Judd to do her bidding through abnormal sex practices within a few weeks. Ruth was compared to every female temptress from the biblical Eve to Lady Macbeth. You these gender condemnations of women who commit violent crimes aren't not uncommon even today Scottish barrister. Helen Kennedy Hannity. Who represented murderer? Myra Hindley found that. The public often reacts more harshly to female defendants in her two thousand nineteen books. She wrote note. We feel differently about a woman doing something consciously cruel because of our expectations of women as the nurturing sex the adage is that women who commit crimes are mad bad or sad the bad maybe few in number but once given the label. There is no forgiving Ruth tried to strike back against this perception in a scathing statement she con Judd Alot cringing sneaking King Jackal. The murderer of my husband who is now trying to hide behind my skirt to try to drag me into the stinking Pitt but ruth's colorful language little to change public opinion. It also didn't help that. Judd seemed to embrace religion during his jail. Stay he you spent much of the time in his cell reading the Bible and meet a show of being moved to tears. During the church services held at the Jail Chapel. He appeared to be a redeem center. In contrast route seemed glib and unrepentant. She frequently joked and bantered with jail. matrons she was apparently incapable of overcoming her Brash Party girl image one night when a Ukulele band played outside her jail cell window.

She asked for and was granted permission to keep a curling iron in her cell and sometimes pass the time by giving herself manicures with a matchstick nick. Once again the public found her behavior far from endearing reporter Joseph Fan Rita called Judd. Gray a tragic figure and a subject for pity won't characterizing ruth as unutterable brutal cruel cowardly perverted and stupid roots own neighbor who had hosted the Party Ruth in Albert attended on the night of the murder was quoted as saying I absolutely despise her. Sure if anyone had to be killed. It should have been Mrs Snyder. Ruth could only hope that her jury might be more sympathetic attic. She and Judd would soon go to trial for first degree murder.

He took a bus to Jamaica subway station in Queens but discover the trains wouldn't be running until eight. AM instead he. He took a taxi to Manhattan's Grand Central Station where he boarded the morning train to upstate. New York back. The Snyder House Ruth Lee on the ground waiting to be discovered but after a while she grew tired of waiting she called out to her daughter Lorraine and asked the girl to phone their neighbor. You're lorraine told her. Come over to our house. Quick Mama is very sick when the NIEBUHR arrived she found ruth lying on the landing of the stairs. Ruth told her she had been unconscious for at least the past five hours claiming she'd received received blow to the head. The neighbor called over her husband. Who searched the house he discovered? Albert's body almost immediately and call the police. It's just after eight. Am Detectives arrived at the scene along with an ambulance and Dr. The physician examined Ruth but he he could find no evidence that she had been hit over the head or knocked unconscious. The detectives questioned ruth closely. She told them truthfully that the family had gone to a bridge party the night before. She said her husband drink a great deal and had fallen asleep immediately after the party. Ruth then claim that she'd heard a noise downstairs when she went to investigate a dark-haired man stepped out of the shadows and hit her over the head roots said the man looked Italian as proof she produced grabs of an Italian language newspaper claiming the intruder had left them in the house. In the first few decades of the twentieth century xenophobic sentiment against Italian immigrants and descendants was extreme mm-hmm the United States Immigration Commission even released a report in nineteen eleven stating certain kinds of criminality are inherent in the Italian race. He's in the popular mind. Crimes of personal violence robbery blackmail and extortion are peculiar to the people of Italy. Ruth thought that she might gain sympathy by pinning her husband's murder on Italian immigrants. Before I continue with Ruth Psychology. Please note I am not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but I have done a lot of research for the show. Ruth's plan fit in with a long history story of racial hoaxes. In which white women have falsely accused members of a marginalized group of a crime. A famous case occurred in nineteen ninety four when a white white woman Susan Smith murdered her children and then invented a fictitious black man whom she accused of carjacking her and kidnapping her children legal scholar.

Sometimes bordering on a malevolent level and fantasy roots. Fantasy may have been about getting attention as much as it was about. Her husband's insurance payout Bonnie Jacobson psychologist and director of the New York Institute for Psychological Change in New York. City said that people who fake crimes seek seek the attention they get by playing victim. Jacobson drew comparisons between their motivations and people with Munchausen Syndrome who fake severe illness to get sympathy from loved ones. Whatever her motivations route described her attacker police as a swarthy man with a black mustache but despite despite her vivid detail? Detectives were skeptical. She had no injuries suggesting a blow to the head. Her ankles had been tied together but but not her wrist leading police to wonder why she hadn't simply untied herself. Detectives also noticed that there was no sign of forced entry on top of that. The ransacked house raised even more suspicions. A professional thief wouldn't have wasted time throwing around couch cushions and emptying gene kitchen. Cupboards were no valuables. Were likely to be found. The whole thing look staged a detective have told Ruth outright that he didn't believe her house had been burglarized to which ruth responded. What do you mean how could you tell he replied we see a lot of burglaries? They are not done this way. The polices subsequent search of the House confirmed the detective suspicions. They found the jewelry. Ruth had hidden under the mattress. Clearly no one had stolen them. Ruth's robbery story was falling falling apart. Authorities also found other items in their search that peak their interest including several cancelled checks to an insurance company. When they questioned ruth about her husband's insurance she lied telling them that he only had a one thousand dollar policy neglecting to mention the fifty thousand in dollar policy with a double indemnity clause she taken out the previous year? Detectives also found cancelled checks. Ruth had made out to judge gray. Ruth was evasive and tried to change the subject. When police asked her who he was officers? Spent the whole day interrogating Ruth in her house. They also so spoke to several of her neighbors who mentioned that Ruth and Albert often argued and that ruth frequently stayed out late into the night by five PM. mm-hmm they had enough suspicions to bring Ruth to the Jamaica police precinct at the precinct questioning continued for several more hours. Despite the detectives open disbelief. Roots stuck to her robbery story. The Detectives Confronted Ruth with her neighbors allegations that she often stayed out late at night. Ruth admitted to this but claimed it was because she spent a lot of time with her cousin. Ethel Anderson Anderson Detectives discovered that cousin. Ethel was married to a police patrolman in the Bronx. They called the patrolman to the Jamaica precinct and asked him what he knew about Route Snyder. They wanted to know who she was. Friendly with. The patrolman recalled seeing ruth with one man in particular Shakier Judd. Gray one of the detectives lieutenant.

"Hand. Horrifying turned out Frederick had an unusually large heart. So the two shocks hadn't been enough to make it stop. So the carded him back into the room strapped him in and made damn sure he was dead using a third jolt. Because the sentences you must be electrocuted Intel you are dead. So the sentence must be carried out. I'm just so happy. They're going with the rule of law. I was gonna say this you use your to to to jolts you go free. Yeah. That's what I would say. If I was if I was the warden of. So you got to jolts you missed you you go free. Yeah. And van warmer wasn't the only one to go to the chair unconscious in nineteen thirty six. A woman named Mary Creighton with executed for killing her lover's wife with rat poison. And it wasn't her first murder either. She'd also poisoned her mother-in-law father in law and her younger brother, but there wasn't enough evidence to prove any of those murders. What is the husband do? Do the husband actually helped her murder, the mother-in-law the father in law and the younger brother, but Mary cried and had moved onto another lover and decided to murder that wife now Crichton tried the crazy defense in the days leading up to the execution by banging her head on the bars and screaming, and such that it was all for not the execution went forward. But on the hour for execution. She fainted when the guards came to her cell door, and that was Mary crayton's last conscious moment on this earth as the guards unceremoniously picked her up Drager to the chamber strapped her in and electrocuted or while she was still passed out. You see the possum defense does not work. The on death row. I will say, you know, where the possum defense does work if they're trying to get you to leave a plane, you just go eventually, they don't do any to also learn this from an Uber driver last night where he was having a problem with somebody who was sleeping the car if you just refuse to respond. They can't touch you you now technically owned that call I long as you're in there. It's a good technique. Good technique. Indeed. And Creighton certainly wasn't the only one to try acting crazy to get out of it. Either. Harry Holmes was on death row for dressing up in a Santa Claus suit, murdering two cops during a robbery in Cisco Texas in nineteen twenty nine not too far from where I grew up back when crimes were fun. Yeah. I guess they not dressing costumes anymore for Bank robberies. I think they put masks on. The last great costume was the dudes who wore the full steel they look a furnace. Yeah. But that's not a costume. That's like body armor that way. Ostrom is just come in those sexy overwatch 'cause play. I would be distracted. I don't think you have to rob a Bank. I think people actually just give you money that. While Harry Holmes was waiting execution. He started singing the same song in his cell over and over and over again while tearing books and letters into tiny pieces. With. Nineteen twenty nine. So it was probably like I don't like on my call on. What you like favorite kind of these? This is my favorite kind of music. I love that. If I may recommend my new favorite podcast hot pipes the pipe organ podcast. It's great. Well, is that real? Yeah. It's awesome. I love it some hot fights. It's. I'm pretty high quietly talking about certain pipe organ players throughout the years. What cities have the best pipe organ when you're listening of the pun? Chris. Would the some pipes wider than others? This one the pipes were. So thin and Marcus just like he's still got it got it. I have to ask you how many knives you lick. Well, let's podcast you live the life of a serial killer. But I know you're too busy to kill. What are you talking about? What what is wrong with? What is it about hot pipes smell serial killer to you? It sounds like a restaurant that serves logs of shit. The pipe organ podcast. It's my new favorite you're allowed. You're allowed to listen to whatever you want. Thank you. So after Harry homes is taken for sanity hearing a verdict of sane Cain back after about twenty minutes. And after the same verdict came back. He reportedly said in a pouty tone, quote, going to sing no more. Honestly, that's the saddest thing we've talked about so and we've talked about copious amounts of dog. So that is you can still sing buddy. Don't don't even stress. It Gusau chose keep myself saw. Shows that nobody you can sing. And Henry Holmes was carried to the chair kicking and screaming by four guards. Just a couple of weeks later and was electrocuted in a private ceremony with no witnesses and no reporters as per Helms. Request. See I like that approach kicking and screaming make them work for it. You're not going. I the peaceful person who was like I've made my peace. There ain't no making peace with the chair. I would can't him the whole time trying to get an eye. You're going to have to do some prison cross fit into that room because there's gonna take a lot of core. Strength. Keep me while I'm swinging my arms and kicking my legs. But I also do want as big an audience as possible. Remember that? I hate to say this Henry you kicking screaming would be cute because like. Okay. Puffins of humans. You have to go. I will have been on death row for a reason. Yeah. Men made up the vast majority of lightning writers over the years. Mary Crichton was not even close to the only woman who went in one case the sentence actually resulted in jail house romance dubbed, the granite woman by the press Ruth Snyder was a housewife from queens who was sent to the chair in nineteen twenty nine for convincing her lover Ecorse. It salesman named Henry jug gray help murder her husband for insurance money. That's kinda hot. It's hot. It's you know, sitting there everyday Judd is just he's tying Ruth and like mash tits up she's just like eighty if he just play God thing, maybe can kin has been as the. Ruth's out. Oh, yeah. We got to get them out of the picture. China's empty. What they're doing. The stool now, let's say that Snyder was just trying to get someone else to do Hertie work. According to gray Ruth at already tried to kill her husband seven times by this point through various, gassings and poisonings but still her husband survived every single one. I wonder if Mr. Magoo legitimately like everything is going crazy around him. And he just stays the course that does make a good point with the horse blinders. Just don't recognize anything and you'll be just fine. Yeah. You're just walking through scenarios things are blowing up around you just just happy as can be wit slid. So to make damn sure he died Judd and Ruth approached her husband while he was passed out drunk in bed, bashed, his skull in with a piece a lead, chloroform them and Garrod the old drunk with a wire. Okay. First of all your drunk shaming, which I don't like and second. It was he would still be alive. If what if you hadn't been passed out. Okay. I'm sorry. It's called a sleepy. Lard down.
