Jennifer Levin was just 18 when she was killed. She'd left Dorrian's Red Hand at 4:30 a.m. on a Tuesday morning in August 1986 with a young man by the name of Robert Chambers, whom she'd dated on and off.

Chambers was arraigned on a charge of second-degree murder. His Upper East Side breeding and good looks earned him the name "The Preppy Killer."
