No, sorry GUT. It took complicated investigations and litigation goint into the 1940s (the rise of Nazi Germany and the Second World War interrupted this process), but it was proven to be German sabateurs. By the way, if you go to Liberty Island (formerly Bedloe's Island) on a visit to New York City, and look at the back of the Statue of Liberty, there are some minor scars left from the explosion due to shrapnel from the armaments which flew into the statue (Black Tom Island was directly in back of the statue). The explosion was heard all over Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn and Queens (possibly also in the Bronx) and caused many windows in Manhattan to be blown out by the blast.

The witch's cat was usually named "Pyewacket", like Kim Novak's in the film, "Bell, Book, and Candle" with Jimmy Stewart, Jack Lemmon, Elsa Lanchester, and Ernie Kovaks.

50 years ago - 1966 August 1 - Charles Whitman kills his wife and mother in their homes then moves on up to the upper deck of the tower at the University of Texas in Austin where he sets himself up in a sniper's nest. He then proceeds to shoot dozens of people, killing an additional 14. After about 90 minutes, four men are able to get up the tower and a policeman guns down Whitman. A man who died many years later is often listed as the seventeenth murder victim since the wound he suffered is believed to have contributed to his premature death.
