Bobby Franks' home is on South Ellis Avenue in Chicago. On May 21, 1924, Franks was walking here from the Harvard School when, three blocks down the street, he was kidnapped by Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb. They took Bobby about three blocks from his home and then killed him in their car, and he was found dead the next day in a drainage ditch. Within days the two killers were caught and confessed to the infamous thrill crime. The funeral was held at home on South Ellis Avenue on May 25, 1924 and Bobby was laid to rest at Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago.
