|Summary, etc.:|| The sensational Diamond murder was a Roaring Twenties story of roadhouse floozies, illegal booze, orphaned children, trust funds and legal acrobatics. Nettie Herskovitz-- wealthy and widowed-- at first resisted the advances of Harry Diamond, a dashing young bootlegger a decade and a half her junior. After the two were married with an infant daughter, Diamond became disinterested in a domestic life. He shot Nettie on Valentines Day 1923 while riding in their Hudson sedan. He tried to pin the crime on the fleeing chauffeur, but Nettie lived long enough to identify her attacker to police and change her will.
