    At 17, he did a year bid in jail for rape.
    In 1955, he burned down his barn, collecting insurance money to cover up that his employee Kenneth Hansen molested and murdered a trio of pubescent boys in the stables.
    Three women, who allegedly witnessed a bomb being alligator-clipped to the ignition of half-brother George's car, with the explosion killing his assistant, vanished in 1966.
    A cop investigating the horse racket was shot to death through a kitchen window (1968).
    Two years later, while playing cards in the basement with his wife, George was shot through the heart.
    Socialite Helen Brach, destined to tell authorities she'd been scammed by her lover/Jayne associate Richard Bailey, went missing and was presumably burned up in a blast furnace (1977).
    He was known as charming.
    He rocked a 16-karat diamond pinky ring.
    He was an excellent horseman.
    Many of his harrowing deeds finally came to light in the 1990s through a re-opened investigation of Helen Brach's disappearance.
    A number of people, including Kenneth Hansen and Richard Bailey, as well as the hitmen who murdered George, were eventually convicted.
