In early 1905, Hawaiian police opened—and quickly closed—an investigation into Jane Stanford’s mysterious death. A century later, an amateur sleuth tried to crack the case, uncovering university scandals, possible motives for murder, and a misinformation campaign led by the president of Stanford University himself.
She became one of the most influential people in California when she co-founded Stanford University in 1891. Jane Stanford was widely beloved for her forward-thinking, liberal ideals—but she also earned a few enemies. And when she was murdered in 1905, one question sent shockwaves through California: Who disagreed with Jane enough to kill her?
Once the princes disappeared, rumors and theories spread about who killed them—or if they were really dead at all. None of the speculation mattered to their uncle, Richard III, though. With the boys gone, he could finally claim the throne. But the new king soon realized that holding onto power would not be so easy.
In 1483, two princes got caught in the center of a bloody war for the throne of England—and became one of the biggest murder mysteries in British history. After the princes' uncle realized they were the only thing standing between him and his life-long quest for the crown, he locked them in the Tower of London. What happened next has remained a mystery for hundreds of years.
