You have to love The New York Times. With everything that’s going on in the Satin Strangler case, particularly the spectacular death of defense attorney Horace Krouch, you would expect a little more than this blurb that was tucked away in the obituary section of the paper today:

Horace P. Krouch, Esq., died at the age of 42 on Friday night in New York City. Mr. Krouch was an attorney in Manhattan for nearly 20 years. A native of New York City, he attended Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire and then Yale University. He completed his legal studies at Yale University Law School, where he held the student position of Executive Editor of the prestigious Yale Law Journal. Mr. Krouch worked briefly as a public defender in Manhattan before hanging his own shingle there in 1991. He established an esteemed career as one of the nation’s most successful criminal defense attorneys, specializing in murder cases. He is perhaps best known as the criminal defense attorney for accused Satin Strangler Destiny Blande, successfully achieving an acquittal against seemingly insurmountable evidence. Mr. Krouch leaves behind no immediate family.
