Here is a list of 7 Unsolved Murders.
Jack the Ripper.
Back in 1888, London’s streets were terrorised by one of the most notorious serial killers of all times. Ripper’s victims were prostitutes and he mutilated his victims after killing them. He murdered 5 girls by slashing their throats and stomach and pulling all the organs out before dumping them on streets. Gory and grotesque in every way. Till date, there is no face to that name.
It was the year 1947, a mother and child were on their business when they came across the body of a woman cleanly cut in half at her waist. No blood or identity. The name Black Dahlia was derived from the victim’s affinity to wear black clothes. She also had black hair. Nobody was ever identified to be guilty of killing Elizabeth Short.
This one was a wretched psychopath for sure. The Zodiac Killer himself sent anonymous letters to the police claiming the murders. He wreaked havoc in California between 1968 and 1969. He wrote cryptic messages to the police with the phrase ‘This is Zodiac Speaking’ The San Francisco police department still investigates this case.
Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G
These two rappers were the sensation of the 90s Music World. Unfortunately, they have shot dead 6 months apart. The first one to go was Tupac. The cloud of suspicion surrounded Notorious B.I.G as both the rappers had a feud between them. However, B.I.G himself was killed 6 months later. Yet, the police are stumped and no logical theory identified.
Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe was a writer on his way to Baltimore from New York in 1849 when he grew delirious on the way. He died in the hospital four days later by alcohol poisoning. However, it was over-exaggerated. The reasons were different. The reasons for his death are still mysterious.
Tamper-proof seals on everything became a norm after this. It was back in 1982 when Tylenol cured everything. 7 people took Tylenol for different reasons and die within hours. Extra Strength Tylenol was immediately removed from the stores. No one knows who spiked the pills.
What will you do if you find a foot clad in sneaker lying on the beach you when decided to take a stroll. Just a foot? Back in 2007, this case put the authorities of Canada in a slump. 5 such feet were found. No bodies or other parts, just feet. Still, there is no identity of the feet or the killer.
