Murder Mystery In Greenwich Village
Greenwich Village New York 1954
I had observed a lot of strange behavior around the village, but none as strange as what i could see in the Thorwald home. Mr. and Mrs. Thorwald were not the typical couple. This bed ridden young woman had some how found her way with an angry old man so it seems. The night Mrs. Thorwald went missing for good, i would not have even suspected anything if it werent for her husbands mysterious actions.
Mr. Thorwald was seen filling boxes, cleaning a saw, and making changes to his home. While i was mostly sure he had done something to his wife, there was no real compelling evidence until Mr. Jeffries, his nurse, and his girlfriend went into a further investigation. While Mr. Jeffries leg was broken, these brave women went to extremes to prove that Mr. Thorwald was guilty
Women cant get a "mans" job, they would never be ready for it, and nobody is willing to put in the work to help them. Are they supposed to cook and clean forever? A small group of women rebel, showing more skin, smoking and drinking like men, and even coming into previously all male industries. Feminism is weak at this time, but its coming in stronger
L. B. Jeffries
Along with myself, this is the man who first noticed the ill behavior. HIs close connection with a local detective helped him solve the case. He might take most of the credit, even though he didnt much dirty work
Jeffries long term nurse Stella , also noticed the ill behavior and helped jeffries. Her years of interaction with people and her womans intuition were a key factor in stopping Mr. Thorwald
On and off girlfriend to jeffries, Lisa Fremont took the biggest risk of any that were involved in this case. Even commiiting the crime of breaking and entering into the Thorwalds home to gather evidence. This risk led to the final arrest.
L. B. Jeffries
Miss Lonely Heart
Her relevance to the story is still unkown. Her many years of having no lover or companion have clearly driven her crazy. But she caught the attention of Jeffries which sparked his interest in the neighbors. So thank you Miss Lonelyheart
Also another female that sparked Attention through the apartment. Objectified until the her husband returns from serving in the army.
The man who was found to be the murderer of his wife. This shows the lack of care men have for women in this time. They are seen as burdens in many homes.
