50 years ago - 1960 March 19 - Sharon Kinne guns down her husband James in their Missouri home. She would be seventy-years-old now and, if she's living, she is still wanted for this murder. Later this year, she killed the wife of a romantic interest but was acquitted for that slaying. In 1964, she shot and killed a man in Mexico. Ballistic tests showed that the gun used to murder him was the same weapon that was used to kill the woman in Missouri. Kinne was sentenced to prison for the last slaying but escaped in 1969 and has not been recaptured. She is wanted for this in Mexico as well as for the killing of her husband here in the U.S.

Its rumoured that Dickman was framed for this one as some influential people including then Home Secretary Winston Churchill believed he had murdered Caroline Luard in 1908.Dickman was convicted on somewhat circumstantial evidence,

Interesting article on the Nisbet murder can be found here
