100 years ago - 1915 April 23 - Forty-year-old Lucy Strange is beaten to death with fire tongs in her Oxford, England home. Mrs. Strange was married but separated from her husband and living alone. A local laborer was charged with the killing when he gave a suspicious account of events at the relevant time. He was acquitted, however, and the murder remains unsolved.

50 years ago - 1965 April 23 - The head of Mary Jones, 37, is discovered near the Michigan home of serial killer Clarence Walker. Earlier in the month, the remainder of her body had been found, along with two other Walker victims, in a different location. Walker was eventually convicted of another crime in a different state and sent to prison for life.

50 years ago - 1965 April 25 - Michael Andrew Clark, 16, sets up a sniper nest above a California highway and begins picking off morning commuters. Two men and a 5-year-old boy were murdered before Clark shot and killed himself as lawmen approached. Numerous others had also been wounded in the assault. Up until today, Clark had seemingly been a normal teenager and no explanation for his rampage was ever ascertained.

Was that 50 years ago.

Boy I'd have said only about 30, remember it well.

I don't believe so (or at least he apparently was never tried) but he got life for a crime in Illinois.

He'd have faced the executioner for Jones though wouldn't he?

I would assume-don't know why it wasn't sought.

Puzzling, unless the evidence wasn't too strong.

Any idea how long he lived in prison, maybe he didn't last long enough to face charges.

Nor could I, that's why I wondered if maybe he didn't last too long.
