Robert Emmanuel "Bobby" Franks Grave Location

Bobby Franks Sept 19, 1909 - May 22, 1924. Murdered by Leopold and Loeb "by their desire to commit a perfect crime."

Why is the location still so hard to track down on the internet? The Franks family asked that Rosehill Cemetery not reveal the burial site, but it has been 88 years. I doubt it's much of a tourist attraction anymore. (Are any direct descendants still around?)


It's not that hard to find. It's in the Jewish section in the Southwest. Jacob Franks Mausoleum. It's right next to the road, not even that hidden, in Section T.
