One of the most bizarre murder mysteries is that of Polish immigrant, Isidor Fink. On 9 March, 1929, Fink returned to his New York apartment after work. A few moments after he returned home, a neighbour called the police reporting that they had heard some deafening screams coming from inside Fink’s apartment. When police arrived, they discovered that the door was locked from the inside and the windows of the apartment had been nailed shut, again from the inside. The windows were much too small for your average sized adult to climb through so they had a small child crawl through the window and unlock the door for them. Inside, the body of Fink was discovered on the floor. He had been shot three times in the chest and also the wrist. When the apartment and surrounding area was searched, no weapon was discovered. An investigation revealed that the only fingerprints found inside the apartment belonged to Fink. This baffled investigators; if somebody had killed Fink then how did they escape the apartment and lock the door from the inside? Nothing had been stolen from the apartment which ruled out robbery. Suicide became a theory but this was almost impossible due to the lack of weapon and why would Fink have shot himself in the wrist before the chest? This case has mystified authorities and curious crime buffs alike for decades, yet still remains unsolved.
