By 1930, Joseph Force Crater was a judge in New York appointed by future president Franklin Delano Roosevelt. But on August 6th, Crater had dinner with his mistress and an attorney friend. That was the last time he was ever seen and it would start an investigation that would captivate the nation and span many years.
Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss this unsolved case that has fascinated people for almost 90 years now. Crater had a penchant for showgirls, he had a mistress, and he was known to associate himself with members of organized crime. He was also accused of orchestrating some shady deals during his time in power. Theories are rampant in this one, many of them center around some of the more famous mafia associates of the time.
