100 years ago - 1914 March 5 - In France, Paul Jacques is gunned down by his wife Marie, a romance novelist who goes by the pen name Hera Myrtle. She was able to pass the act off as a suicide despite the facts that two of her lovers from before the marriage had also died of gunshot wounds. Marie said the first man had also died from suicide and that the second lover had been killed by unknown intruders. She later married for a second time and, in 1920, beat that spouse to death with a hammer. Marie claimed that Charles Bessarabo had run off with another woman but that story fell through when his battered body was discovered jammed into a trunk. In 1921, she was found guilty of this final murder and sent to prison for 20 years. She died 9 years later while still incarcerated.

Moseley (although he denies it) was guilty of the killing of Kitty Genovese, the young woman killed in Forest Hills / Kew Gardens Queens (on Austin Street) screaming for help within the hearing of at least 80 people in nearby apartment houses. At least that was the story told by a cocky New York Times reporter looking for an angle on the tragedy.
