Banker Edward G. Bremer is kidnapped at the corner of Goodrich Avenue and Lexington Parkway in St. Paul. On February 7, after his family pays a $200,000 ransom, Bremer is freed in Rochester. Bremer’s remarkable memory leads investigators to the kidnappers, the Barker-Karpis gang, the members of which would all be caught or killed by 1936.
