Hollywood director William Desmond Taylor was murdered Feb. 2, 1922 and the crime went unsolved. One theory was that Taylor's brother, Denis Deane-Tanner, was working as Taylor's valet under the name Edward Sands and had slain him. This theory was later discounted. Shown here is a picture of Edward Sands. He was never located by the police.
