Just days after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, a group of amateur criminals plotted to kidnap Frank Sinatra Jr. in hopes of landing a big ransom, the FBI posted.

Two 23-year-old former high school classmates from Los Angels kidnapped the son of the world’s most famous singer at the time. Sinatra Jr. was taken from a dressing room, blindfolded and taken to a car waiting outside.

On Dec. 11, the singer gave up $240,000 in ransom.

But one of the conspirators got nervous and let Sinatra go, leading to the arrest of the three men.
