Seriously though....I'd go with Mike's "Thames Torso" or our "Cleveland Torso".
I've got three suspects...The Chinese...The Eygptians or the Romans!

Shell:

I didn't figure in the Chinese....because they didn't wear the standard issue armor of a Roman soldier like you see in the recreations of Golgotha...or that of your typical Jewish henpecked husband of the period....good thinkin'.

I suppose there might be a "chink in the armor" of my Roman/Jew theory after all.

The BD case definately,from that list-- maybe because it's so disturbing and at the end of the day 'That Photo' makes MJK look quite OK- or perhaps I'm just becoming immune to it!

Shelley-
DON'T get me going on JonBenet (Spookily I've just been doing a lot of reading on just that!)- Now there we DO have a serious mystery and a heck of a lot of wrong footing - and that's before we leave the house- leaving not a single footprint of course- if indeed there was markable snow!........IMHO!

I said don't get me going!!

The first 8 are the ones that most intrigue me. Borden would be about #15 on my list but I felt I should include it because of tradition. Ramsey is an interesting case but it's a little too new to really draw me in yet. If I could have listed 20, perhaps it would have been on there. And, I added "Other" to make it more interactive. Just giving out my method.

From that list, I'd go for Zodiac or Black Dahlia. But I'd also like to vote for the Charles Bravo case, and the Oscar Slater case. And Edalji, purely for historical interest.
