Dick Hickock, Murderer, Garden City, Kansas, April 15, 1960
Hickock, along with Perry Smith, carried out the infamous Clutter family killings in Holcomb, Kansas in 1959 and gained great notoriety as the subject of Truman Capote's book In Cold Blood.
And law enforcement agencies have not been above exploiting photography for their own purposes. All of this is explored at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in the exhibit Crime Stories: Photography and Foul Play and is examined in this fine New Yorker piece by Alexandra Schwartz.
