50 years ago - 1966 April 13 - The battered remains of Mary Pierce are found in a Monmouth, IL hog shed behind Frank's Place, a tavern where she worked. Richard Speck had been a recent customer of the establishment and it's suspected that this was his first murder.

800 years ago - 1216 April 17 - While passing an Easter church gathering in Florence, Italy, Buondelmonte de Buondelmonti is cut to pieces. The final death blow was dealt by Oddo Arrighi, a woman he'd jilted at the alter.

Could it be possible that his last words were "Et tu Oddo?"

None of it sounds very Christian-like, and isn't Oddo a rather strange name for a female. Shouldn't it be Odda?

50 years ago - 1966 April 22 - In his Bingley, England office, bookmaker Fred Craven is beaten to death and robbed. The murder is still unsolved although some have suggested Peter Sutcliffe, The Yorkshire Ripper, as the possible culprit.

It is odd. It sounds like the murder of a Jewish money lender (I believe in Newcastle) that was never solved - in an apparent robbery - in 1908, that has sometimes been seen as a murder that John Alexander Dickman may have committed (like he may be the killer of Mrs. Luard that same year).

Dickman was blamed for several murders, including that of Caroline Luard, whom I'm inclined to believe was killed by an opportunistic tramp. I really can't see that one as a Dickman crime. The moneylender, well perhaps.

Why would Sutcliffe be suspected of Fred Craven's murderer, though? Did Sutcliffe owe him money? This sort of homicide speaks to me of someone with enormous gaming debts who lashes out because otherwise they're ruined.
