- Juror Harold Harby (bottom left) lifts his foot in the air to break the tension during the Albert Dyer trial. Fellow jurors (left to right) Shirley Angranoff, Butler E. Shaw, George Ritchie, and James D. Kelly laugh. The trial was for Albert Dyer, a 32 year old W.P.A crossing guard who confessed to the murders of three Inglewood girls. Dyer admitted to luring the girls; Madeline Everett (9), Melba Everett (7), and Jeanette Stephens (8) into the woods on the pretense of helping them catch rabbits and then strangled them in succession. Dyer was sentenced to death after the jury's two day debate. On September 16, 1938 at San Quentin Prison, Dyer was one of the last people to be hung in the state of California
