50 years ago - 1966 October 24 - Suzanne Reynolds, 25, is found in a vacant New York flat near the apartment of her piano teacher Charles Yukl. He was charged with the stangulation but was only convicted of manslaughter due to some prosecutorial missteps and was back out on parole in five years. A year later he killed another woman and was sent back to prison for 15 years to life. Since he hanged himself in his cell in 1982, the life sentence was brief.

50 years ago - 1966 October 24 - The body of school teacher Robert Pugh is pulled from an Ohio river. Ralph Nuss had murdered him then had sex with the corpse. Three men had been killed in about a two week period so Nuss could perform acts of necrophilia. He was eventually caught and sent to prison for life.

350 years ago - 1666 October 27 - Robert Hubert is hanged, on dubious evidence, for starting the Great London Fire. At least six individuals, and probably a lot more, died in or as a result of the blaze. A number of other people, described as immigrants, were also lynched by vigilante mobs.

All I know is that it supposedly started in a bakery shop on Pudding Lane, and that the original St. Paul's Cathedral was one of thousands of structures that were destroyed (but that Sir Christopher Wren would replace.

Not even in England, apparently.

The fire was obviously started by Sir Christopher Wren, to drum up work.

Interesting story (tragic, of course, for Hubert, who was a convenient scapegoat). I took the trouble of checking out "Pudding Lane", a small street in London that (interestingly enough*) still exists. Because I read that it was begun in a fire in a bakery, I always assumed the name "Pudding" referred to the desert, like in "Plum Pudding". It has quite a more disgusting origin from medieval times connected to dung.

[*The reason that I was amazed that the named street still exists is that, due to it's connection to such a cataclysmic occurrence, I would have thought they'd have buried it's name long ago to forget about what happened there.
Brooklyn, New York has a similar tragedy that altered a street name: In 1919 the worst subway disaster in New York City's history occurred on "Malbone Street" when a temporary engineer (there was a strike going on) fell asleep at the control, and the first two cars smashed into a culvert because they were travelling too fast at that point. Ninety people died as a result. The street's name was changed to "Empire Blvd." to help forget the tragedy - but twenty years ago I read a book on this occurrence, and it turned out a small segment of the old "Malbone Street" is still in existence in Brooklyn, and kept that name.]

That he managed to start the fire even before arriving in England amply illustrates the depths of his malice and cunning.
