Did a well-known New York City artist get away with murder?

In the early hours of September 8, 1985, Ana Mendieta plunged to her death from the 34th floor apartment she shared with her famous husband in the Manhattan neighborhood of Soho. Immediately, the insular New York art world was consumed with one question: did she fall accidentally, or was she pushed?

Ana and her husband, the sculptor Carl Andre, had long been fixtures in the hip, downtown scene that revolved around the legendary Max's Kansas City. But when Ana discovered that Carl had been having affairs, the passion that had defined their love exploded into a heated argument. Carl's nose and arm were scratched enough to bleed, and a doorman on the street below heard a woman screaming "No, no, no, no, don't." Seconds later, Ana's body crashed onto the roof of a delicatessen.

From Carl's call to 911 to the clever legal strategy that eventually exonerated him--despite a wealth of circumstantial evidence suggesting murder--CITY CONFIDENTIAL examines every aspect of the case that still has Soho artists debating: did he do it or not?
