Default A little off-topic - news of an arrest

A little off-topic as it's not an anniversary, but it is news about a 20 year old mystery that Stan may very well be interested in.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-12-2...arrest/8143174

Currently, the lead story on Australia's ABC news website is the arrest of a man in connection with the abduction and murder of three women in 1996-97. All three disappeared from the Perth suburb of Claremont.

If I recall correctly, there were suspicions of a fake taxi being involved as the women had disappeared on their ways home after nights out.
