        Valerie Percy, a pretty young woman and daughter of Us Senator killed in her home in 1966. No obvious signs of intruder. Like Betsy Aardsma case, there has been recent hints at a solution, but nothing conclusive. This occurred in Kenilworth, Illinois, a very wealthy suburb of Chicago. The house was famed for having a tree in it. A large part of my family is from the town just north of this and I've heard the story my whole life

          Julia Wallace (mainly to shut a certain someone up on the thread as I'm confident in my theory )

          Martha Moxley, probably the case I know most about. I live close to it and even know some of the periphery characters. I do not think Michael Skakel was guilty. He is out on appeal now. Would really want to know for sure. If I had to pick 1, it would probably be this one.

          Graham, if you hire me and fund my stay at a hotel as well as "business dinners" with your friends and colleagues so I can gain greater insight into your character, I will promise to solve that mystery for you within a few months.

            Hi Gareth,

            I think it means “so.........I can’t think of anything remotely intelligible to say.”

              That's the impression I get, too, Herlock.

                  You hear it on tv all the time. Quiz shows for example.

                  “Ok Paul, what do you do for a living?”

                  “So I work for an advertising agency.”

                  “And what are your hobbies?”

                  “So I love to travel.”

                  WHY?!
                  You'll know it's bad if one of them replies to that last question: So, I love to sew!"

                    It is intriguing, and catch.

                    It reminds me of a minor question that is a song: "Who Wrote the Book of Love?"

                    The answer is "Ovid wrote an ancient book of that title. Stendhal one of the same title in the 19th Century."

                    Another mystery questions of a minor sort I like is from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". If you recall the evil looking and cackling figure guarding the bridge they must cross insists they must answer three questions correctly to pass safely or be tossed into the abyss forever. Eric Idle sees John Cleese have no trouble, and figures this is a joke. He goes up and passes the first two questions (his name, and what he is doing). The third one is "What is the capital of Assyria?" Idle doesn't know, so his character ("Sweet Sir Robin") is thrown into the chasm. The answer was "Nineveh!"

                      I remember when it happened. Her father was Senator Charles Percy. About the time it happened (the late 1960s) Senator Percy was preparing to campaign for the Presidential nomination. This ended that plan.

                        More seriously now:

                        The Bravo Poisoning Case

                        The disappearance of SS. Waratah in 1909.

                        And one with more fun to it (possibly):

                        The chance whereabouts of the missing Marx Brother silent movie, "Humorisk" made about 1925. Groucho did not like this short (made around NYC) and said he hoped it would never reappear. One critic said it is a good thing it is missing, because all us silent film geeks might insist it was the greatest of all Marx Brother films. But Groucho depended on sound for his waspish style of one liners and dialogue to come out - so he naturally disliked a silent movie. And although I love good silent films, and silent comedies, I do not think that a totally silent Marx Brother film would ever replace "Duck Soup" or "A Night At the Opera" as their best film.

                          I remember this case. I don't think her disappearance was that unbelievable, bearing in mind there was a thronging crowd there to see the travelling show. Anyone could've taken her. Only takes a second for a child to be snatched.

                          Quite sad that all her immediate family passed away never knowing the truth.
                          I tend to see the crowd as an obstacle to abduction. One scream, and the villain is undone.

                              No-one said it had to be a murder mystery.

                              - Who were the "Sea Peoples"?
                              - What was the true northern extent of the Egyptian Empire under Thutmosis III?
                              - Who was the "Hornet" who drove out the foreigners prior to the arrival of the Israelites?

                                What happened to Ambrose Bierce?

                                Did George Reeves kill himself?

                                What was Edgar Allen Poe doing in the hours prior to his being found wandering the streets?

                                Is love really "all" we need?
