Ep19 - Dolly Oesterreich (Otto in the Attic)

In 1913 Dolly Oesterreich seemed like an ordinary housewife, married to Fred. However, for a decade she kept a secret lover, Otto, hidden in her attic. The affair would only end when her lover killed Fred, and Dolly was arrested for the murder. Dolly and Otto’s unorthodox relationship shocked the people of Los Angeles during the 1920’s. Even to this day this is a case that is truly stranger than fiction.
