Frank Jackson, the murderer of Leon Trotsky, still bandaged from the beating given him by the Russian’s guards after his assault was discovered, being cross-examined by Colonel Leandro Sanchez Salazar, chief of the secret agents investigating the crime, August 22, 1940 in Mexico City. Sanchez Salazar is seated beside the bed talking to the wounded man, trying to probe in hours of questioning the true story of his assault. The police are not convicted that it was merely an “ideological disillusionment suffered by Jackson that caused him to commit the crime. (AP Photo)
