Here’s a photo from the December 16 1932 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:

Walter Wanderwell (born Valerian Johannes Pieczynski) was murdered on the day before he was about to travel to the South Seas on his 110-foot yacht, Carma. His murder was never solved.

Articles on Wanderwell and his murder can be found here and here. His wife at the time of his murder, Aloha Wanderwell (born Idris Galcia Welsh), has a Wikipedia page and a website devoted to her. YouTube also has lots of videos of her exploits.
