Back in 1928, Clarence Frechette made national news for a bizarre attack that he made on the pilot of an airplane that he was aboard, possibly making him the world’s first hijacker. Amazingly, he was back in the news in 1935 for an equally bizarre crime.
Redfork, Oklahoma resident Jack Van Zandt was arrested on June 24th of 1931 after getting in an argument with his mother-in-law. He was held on $2500 bail, which is about $38,000 today. The charge? Maiming.
