In July 1973, one of the largest manhunts in New York history occurred after Robert Garrow killed four people in the Adirondacks. He was apprehended after a 12-day manhunt. His trial, which became known as “The Missing Bodies Case,” is studied internationally because his lawyers knew but did not reveal the location of two missing bodies due to attorney-client confidentiality. In the book “Sworn to Silence: The Truth Behind Robert Garrow and the Missing Bodies Case” author Jim Tracy writes about Garrow, the murders, the lawyers who defended him and their ethical decisions that are still studied. We speak with Tracy for the 50th anniversary of the manhunt.
