Gee, Stan, there can't be many of us around here who remember the "Lonely Hearts" murderer. I can still recall his trip to the gas chamber featuring in the Toronto papers.

I don't actually recall Glatman from the time Maurice but I do remember some others from live news who predated him like Starkweather for instance.

Well, there you've got me. I don't recall having heard of Starkweather. But, as usual, you've sent me off to search the web for what I'm sure is interesting stuff.

Yes, Starkweather was a sensation here in the midwest in 1958. My earliest memory of an ongoing crime was the William Cook murder spree in 1950-51.

50 years ago - 1959 September 29 - New York mobster Little Augie Pisano aka Anthony Carfano is murdered with a shot to the back of the head while sitting in his Cadillac. His female companion, Mrs. Janice Drake, wife of comedian Alan Drake, met the same fate at his side. As usual in these cases, the perpetrators eluded justice.

I missed a few because I couldn't get in here. They're on that other site.

100 years ago - 1909 November 1 - English entrepreneur, George Storrs is stabbed to death in his home by an invader. He apparently knew that he was going to be murdered in advance but never told who or why. The case is still unsolved.
