4. Where is Judge Crater?
Answer: no one knows! On August 6th, 1930, New York Supreme Court Justice Joseph F. Crater disappeared. After telling friends that he was attending a Broadway play that evening, he removed papers from his files and cashed a check for a large sum. Late that afternoon he was seen entering a taxi, but hasn't been sighted since. For decades people have theorized about the cause of his disappearance. Was he involved in illegal activities? Was he murdered by the underworld? Did he run away? Although Judge Crater was declared officially dead in July 1937, we can still only speculate about why he vanished.
