What was the name of that photographer famous for his crime scene photos?

Inspired yet again by another thread (Long Hollywood Marriages), I looked up Carole Landis and found an old newspaper story about her death with a with a pic of her dead body sprawled on what looks like her kitchen floor with a detective leaning over her.

It reminded me of a famous photographer-- so famous I cannot think of his name. He was known to arrange bodies for a more dramatic pic. It's killing me that I can't remember his name. I wanna introduce him to my son. Via the internet of course. The photographer is dead now, I think.
