    (1921-January 28, 1936)
    Nathan F. Leopold, Jr. - (November 19, 1904-August 29, 1971) - Nicknamed 'Babe'
    Richard Albert Loeb - June 11, 1905-January 28, 1936)
    Lovers from 1921 to 1936
    Murdered a friend of Loeb's in 1924
    Loeb was an egomaniac, and convinced Leopold that they were superior to other people.
    They murdered a 14-year-old boy, just for the challenge and 'fun' of it.
    After the murder, they tried to get ransom money from the boy's parents.
    They were rich.
    They were pretentious and verbose.
    They would go out on double dates, and then laugh at the girls for not realizing they were a couple.
    They left a lot of obvious clues at the crime scene (some superior beings!).
    They completely fell apart under questioning.
    Because of their families' influence, they got fancy private cells in prison, where they were allowed to continue their relationship, raise pets, and cultivate a garden.
    Leopold was eventually released on parole.
    Their fellow college students mocked them for their homosexuality.
    Loeb was the youngest graduate in University of Michigan history.
    They were defended by the famous attorney Clarence Darrow (because he opposed the death penalty, which they faced).
    Loeb died in prison after being slashed with a razor.
    Alfred Hitchcock made a (fictionalized) movie that was loosely based on their story, called 'Rope.'
