On January 2, 1935, at 1:20 p.m., a lone man checked into the President Hotel in downtown Kansas City.

He had no luggage besides a comb and a toothbrush and asked for an interior room on a high floor of the hotel. He checked in under the name Roland T. Owen and complained to the bellboy about the outrageous prices of a neighboring hotel. After checking in and receiving his room, Room 1046 on the 10th floor, he left the hotel, only to be seen intermittently throughout his stay.

The staff wouldn’t give his behavior another thought until days later when the man turned up dead, his hotel room a brutal bloodbath.
