FAMOUS ABDUCTION ON THIS DAY IN 1963

Frank Sinatra, Jr. was kidnapped, at the age of 19 from a room at Harrah’s
Lake Tahoe
. He was released two days later after his father paid a ransom
of $240,000 demanded by the kidnappers. Barry Keenan, Johnny Irwin, and
Joe Amsler were soon captured, prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced to
long prison terms for kidnapping, of which they served only small terms. The
mastermind Keenan was later found to have been legally insane at the time
of the crime, thus not responsible for his actions. Famed attorney Gladys
Root
represented one of the three men.
