Queens Village was the site of the so-called Dumb-Bell Murder in 1927, a crime perpetrated by a married Queens woman and her lover. Ruth Snyder persuaded her boyfriend to kill her husband, after having her spouse take out a big insurance policy with a double indemnity clause. The murderers were quickly identified and arrested and Snyder was electrocuted at Sing Sing prison in 1928. This incident was the basis for the book and film versions of the film noir classic Double Indemnity.
