House of Perfectly Reasonable Explanations: The Trial of Harry New!


House of Mystery v1 #12

Well, it had to happen at some point: DC Comics just made shit up.

There was indeed a trial in the latter part of the 1910’s where Harry New was accused of murdering Freda Lesser, but Harry New was crazier than a piano full of pigeons, and was convicted on overwhelming evidence, including New’s confession.

As for any judicial intervention via the supernatural, there was one fraudmedium who claimed she had receieved a message from Freda Lesser… and that message was that New had definitely killed her.
