Dear Professor Reid,sor...

I would have put down "Who Nailed Jesus?"...only because I got that baby down to two suspects...The Romans or The Jews.

Seriously though....I'd go with Mike's "Thames Torso" or our "Cleveland Torso".

I voted Other case: Kennedy assassination.

Wot's Lizzie Borden doing there? When the case is named after the perp, can it be classified as 'unsolved'?

Just thought i'd put a vote/post up for 'Jack the Stripper' certainly the case that interests me most mystery wise after JtR.

With all the potential cases and a 10 poll limit, I figured "Other" would lead the pack but nothing wrong with that.

I guess it's sort of like "The Oscar Slater Case".

Well, if you're disposed to believe that Lizzie actually did it, I can see where it does sound strange. If you're disposed to think that she didn't, or at least that you're unsure, then she belongs here.

That is one of the beauties of hindsight.

I'd vote JonBenet Ramsey. I'm sure that it was someone who got in and knew the family, sadist definately. It's a crying shame, she should have had a whole life in front of her.
