50 years ago - 1966 October 30 - After disabling her car this evening, someone murders Cheri Jo Bates with stabs to the throat. The 18-year-old Riverside City College co-ed was just leaving the school's library. After a few weeks, several people, including Cheri's father, began to receive taunting letters from an individual believed to be the murderer. Her slaying was never solved and some think she was an early victim of California's Zodiac Killer.

100 years ago - 1916 November 5 - In Everett, Washington, IWW Union members who've come to the city on two ships to support striking shingle workers, are ordered not to leave the boats by Sheriff Donald McRae who is backed by his posse. In addition to the men with the Sheriff on the dock, another detachment is aboard a tugboat just off the shore. A gun battle ensues in which a reported 7 to 14+ men are killed. Union leader Thomas Tracy and a number of his men are arrested for murder relating to the pair of men killed on the Sheriff's side but he is acquitted at trial and the charges against the rest of the men are dropped.

I've not heard of this case before, but apparently it has been recently solved, according to the author of a book about it;

50 years ago - 1966 November 12 - In a Mesa, Arizona beauty salon, Robert Benjamin Smith, 18, orders the 5 women and two children to lie on the floor then shoots them in the back of the head. Five of the seven individuals die as a result. He was asked why he did it and he claimed that it was because he wanted to be famous; possibly inspired by the Richard Speck killings. He eventually wound up in prison after a death sentence was commuted.
