    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS. If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).

Guest Post: 5 of History’s Most Notorious Unsolved Murders

5 of History’s Most Notorious Unsolved Murders

We would all like to fantasize about a world where crime truly doesn’t pay and the bad guy always gets caught. Unfortunately, heinous crimes are committed on a regular basis where the bad guy wins quite often. Whether it is a high profile case, or a lowly individual found in a peculiar manner, murders happen often enough without the suspect being apprehended.

1. Black Dahlia – January of 1947, the body of Elizabeth Short was found cut in half in Los Angeles. Although many people confessed to Elizabeth’s murder, none were arrested.

2. The Bordens – In 1892, Andrew and Abby Borden were brutally murdered and mutilated in their home. Their daughter, Lizzie, was the only arrest in the case and she was acquitted of the murders. While many suspected that Lizzie Borden was indeed the killer, the courts decided otherwise.

3. The Zodiac – Between 1968 and 1969, seven men and women lost their lives to the Zodiac serial killer. Although some 2,500 suspects were investigated, forensic evidence couldn’t support a positive match linking any of them to the murders.

4. JonBenét Ramsay – In Boulder, Colorado in 2003, JonBenét Ramsay’s body was found in the family basement shortly after being reported missing. The murder was a media frenzy without a solid suspect. However, a mixed blood sample found on JonBenét’s person is still checked weekly with CODIS in an attempt to match DNA.

5. Jack the Ripper – One of the most notorious murderers in history is the infamous Jack the Ripper. In London, England during 1888, five prostitutes were brutally strangled, arteries cut, then dismembered. The murders were committed in such a clean fashion that London law enforcement didn’t have a leading suspect. Seemingly, Jack the Ripper had then disappeared into the fog never to return.

The world can be a hateful place, sometimes. However, we mustn’t give in to feelings of paranoia or fear. While murders happen quite often without justice, we can’t be afraid to continue living. Just live the best you can and if your time is up, look back and be proud of your life’s accomplishments.
