A Prison Warden Is Murdered Auburn, New York, December 1929eBook - 2016
Principal Keeper George Adam Durnford was murdered during a prison riot at Auburn State Prison in Upstate New York in December 1929. Beginning in February 1930 convict Max Becker was tried for Durnford's slaying. Becker was a habitual criminal who came to Auburn following a stint in Elmira Reformatory. My e-book considers testimony from wardens and prisoners who were present during the uprising. Becker was defended by Brooklyn Defense Attorney Samuel Leibowitz. --Provided by publisher.
