Charles Stuart blamed a black man!
1989: Charles Stuart was a Boston man who shot his pregnant wife in the head and then shot himself in the abdomen. Stuart told the police that a Black man was responsible for the shootings, sparking a police round-up of hundreds of Black men for questioning. Stuart even picked a man out of a lineup. Stuart’s story unraveled and he committed suicide by jumping off a bridge. Motive: Greed – life insurance. (Photo: Tumblr)
