Who was it that surprised Leno and Louise Lazzari in their Boca Raton studio apartment on an early Sunday morning in 1948? Who was it that plugged the flamboyant Italian sculptor and his wife at point blank range with two bullets each from a .38 leaving them dead in pools of blood beside their bed? And who stole all of the artist's sculptures-works that have yet to be recovered?
For over 60 years, the shocking Boca Raton murders lay in cold storage. Now, "Who Killed Leno and Louise?" takes us through the cold case one step at a time and introduces us to the intriguing victims, shady witnesses, dubious suspects, and devious police officials who investigated the crime.
From Italian fascist Benito Mussolini to Cuban dictator Batista and Florida mob boss Santo Trafficante, from high society Palm Beach to law enforcement officials with their own agenda, from jewelry deemed stolen then miraculously reappears to witnesses who are not who they claim to be, this story oozes intrigue at every turn.
Who killed Leno and Louise? Why did they do it?
Find out in this page-turner that takes the reader on a wild ride with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster.
Those purchasing this book will be given access to the Lazzari Photo Gallery that includes images of the crime scene, Leno's artwork, friends and family and related photos.
