Sam Sheppard, Sheppard v. Maxwell, Cleveland Plain Dealer

Abstract

In Sheppard v Maxwell, the Court stated that this editorial cartoon was typical of the unfavorable publicity and intense media coverage of the murder investigation. In the cartoon, the Sphinx, wearing a neck brace like Sam did during the days after the murder, says "I will do everything in my power to help solve this terrible murder." In Greek legend, the Sphinx devoured those who could not solve the riddle it posed.
