Hotel La Salle, Chicago

After the State Attorney Robert Crowe and his investigators had traced the eyeglasses found near Bobby Franks' body back to Nathan Leopold the police brought Leopold in for questioning. No one yet suspected Leopold was involved in the murder so Crowe had Leopold brought to the Hotel La Salle, a luxury hotel in downtown Chicago. Crowe knew rumors would start if any person was seen by reporters going into be questioned by the authorities at the Criminal Court building.
