A Love Triangle Turns Deadly: Inside the Case of the Scarsdale Murder

It was the diet plan for Hollywood celebrities and housewives across the country.

In the late 1970s, the Scarsdale Diet was all the rage. A precursor to the Atkins diet, it emphasized high-protein, low-fat, low-carb eating. The bestselling book The Complete Scarsdale Medical Diet debuted in 1978 and sold more than 2 million copies.

It was developed by Dr. Herman Tarnower, a prominent New York cardiologist – and well-documented philanderer and playboy.

But the success was short-lived. Two years after the Scarsdale Diet became all the rage, Tarnower was shot to death. The shooter: Jean Harris, one of two women who he was sleeping with at the time.

Harris, a headmistress at an elite private school, had grown jealous of Tarnower’s young new girlfriend. In a rage, she drove to Tarnower’s mansion to kill herself in front of him. Instead, she shot him to death.

‘Preppy Killer’ Robert Chambers: Where Is He Now?

It was a shocking crime that first made headlines in New York City – and then quickly spread across the nation.

In August 1986, 18-year-old Jennifer Levin was found by a cyclist in Central Park. She had been strangled. Arrested for the crime: Robert Chambers, a handsome 20-year-old who had attended several prep schools and spent a semester at Boston University.

The case was soon dubbed “The Preppy Murder” and became a daily fixture in newspapers and on tabloid television.

Chambers was arrested and charged with two counts of manslaughter. His defense argued that Levin’s death had occurred during “rough sex.”

Chambers’ Life Today

After the jury deadlocked, Chambers pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 5 to 15 years in prison. He was released in 2003 – but soon found himself in trouble again.
