50 years ago - 1968 January 26 - In Oregon, 19-year-old Linda Slawson has the misfortune of knocking on Jerry Brudos's door while selling encyclopedias. The future serial killer lures the young woman into his garage where he murders her. He then dressed the body in various undergarments he'd collected and posed the remains for his pleasure. Later, he cut off her left foot, which he kept, and dumped the rest of the body into a nearby river. Brudos went on to murder more women into the next year then was captured and sent to prison for a life term and died there in 2006.

100 years ago - 1918 February 10 - In England, Nellie Trew, 16, is found deceased. She had been raped and strangled. Items the killer left at the scene gave the case its name, the Button and Badge Murder. Twenty-one-year-old David Greenwood was convicted of the crime and sentenced to execution but this was reduced due to his mental state which was blamed on his service in the Great War. He was finally released in 1933.
