It was supposed to say Greatest, but greasy fits.

50 years ago - 1967 May 20 - In South Carolina, Annie Dedmond is strangled and left in the middle of a highway. Roger Dedmond, her husband, was convicted of the crime but it was later determined that Annie was the first victim of serial killer Lee Roy Martin. Mr. Dedmond was released from prison and Martin was incarcerated. Martin was stabbed to death by a fellow inmate during 1979.

100 years ago - 1917 May 24 - Dr. Arthur Warren Waite, a dentist, is put to death in a New York electric chair. The year previous, he'd murdered his wife's parents for profit.

50 years ago - 1967 May 24 - In Ireland, the body of Maria Donenech is found and it's presumed that she had been murdered by her boyfriend, Patrick D'Arcy. The suspect fled to the U. S. and committed suicide in Florida before he could be questioned. Maria's mother vanished in New York shortly before D'Arcy was discovered in Miami and it is assumed that he'd killed her as well, although her remains were never located.

Oh, yes! I'd just been reading about him not so long ago. He was a real piece of work: http://murderpedia.org/male.W/w/waite-arthur-warren.htm If he'd shown some patience, he'd more than likely have gotten away with it.
