50 years ago - 1967 October 29 - London gangster Jack "The Hat" McVitie vanishes after attending a gathering hosted by gang heads, the Kray Brothers. "The Hat" had supposedly insulted one of the brothers and an account says that Ronnie held him down while Reggie Kray plunged in the knife. Continuing the scenario, the victim was then placed in his automobile which was then taken to a junkyard and run through a car crusher. Both brothers were sent to prison and died there.

50 years ago - 1967 October 31 - Sixteen-year-old Glenda Tedball vanishes after being seen outside of her Ontario home. More than 30 years later, a man came forward with the claim that he and Glenda's, by then deceased, mother had been involved in her death. His account said that she was buried under her house but this area was dug up and no remains were found. The case is still unsolved.

100 years ago - 1917 November 24 - An explosive device goes off inside a Milwaukee police station, killing 10. The bomb had originally been placed at a church. It was suspected that anarchists were responsible but no-one was ever convicted of the crime.

I really look forward to these Stan, even though some of them lead to me wasting??? A lot of time following up on them.

100 years ago - 1917 November 25 - Louis-Josephine Jaume disappears after going to meet Henri Landru. She is believed to be the ninth of his, at least, 11 victims. His scheme was to seduce lonely older women then murder them after gaining access to their insurance and funds. Landru went to the French guillotine in 1922. His severed head is currently on display in a Los Angeles museum.

Surely it was 1963, Chris?

I was just about eight years old then, and the adults around me were all stunned. I didn't understand the impact until much later in my life, but even then I knew a very bad thing had happened.
