The Dark Secret about Brach's Candy...

Brach's Halloween

When posting this, I found out something interesting, that the heiress to the Brach fortune, Helen Brach, disappeared on February 17, 1977 and was declared legally dead in May 1984. An investigation into the case uncovered serious criminal activity associated with Chicago stable owners including Silas Jayne and Richard Bailey (who Brach was romantically involved with). More than a decade later Bailey was charged with, but not convicted of, conspiring to murder Mrs. Brach, he eventually received a long sentence after being convicted of defrauding her.
