Killer Jean Harris Dies at 89

With her regal bearing and patrician accent, Jean S. Harris seemed to be the very model of the classic girls' school headmistress. She was always the proper lady.

She sometimes lectured her students on honor and propriety, which made the events of March 10, 1980, that much harder to grasp. On that night, in Purchase, N.Y., the 56-year-old Mrs. Harris shot and killed her longtime lover, Herman Tarnower, a millionaire cardiologist who was famous as the creator of the Scarsdale Diet.
