They tried to commit the perfect crime, but failed. RIP THE DREAM. Leopold and Loeb thought that they were "Ubermensch," a phenomena described by Friedrich Nietzsche as people who are so extraordinary that they are above the law. To prove this, the two killed Robert Franks, a 14 year old that the two knew quite well.0Things didn't go as planned when the police found the eyeglasses of Leopold on the scene, and it was all downhill from there. The two were sentenced to life plus 99 years, and although Loeb died in prison, Leopold eventually earned his freedom and moved to Peurto Rico. Good job, Leo.
I know, Leopold! we can murder a 14 year old with a chisel and tennis racket!
so Loeb, we're ubermensch, let's go commit the perfect crime
Even though I live two blocks away from here, I am completely fine with this.
hey kid, you wanna do some tennis racket? We can give you a ride home, too

This is perfect! The only way anyone would ever figure it out would be if one of us were to confess!
We'll dump acid all over the body and toss it into Wolf Lake. Nobody will find out!
RIP the dream
After hearing Loeb's confession, I've decided that y'all are super guilty and sentence you to life plus 99 years.
