The Phantom of Heilbronn murder victim

DNA evidence linked her to over 40 crimes including a string of six murders over sixteen years, dozens of high-profile thefts, and a deadly arson case. After DNA evidence linked her to the murder of a policewoman, a $400,000 bounty was placed on her head but the female serial killer dubbed the “Phantom of Heilbronn”, described by police as “the country’s most dangerous woman”, cleverly evaded an extensive police manhunt for over 15 years. When her DNA evidence was found on documents belonging to a person who had died in a fire, police took a step back, reevaluated the cases, and determined that their mysterious criminal was the last person they would have ever suspected – and she was “hiding” in plain sight.

Boston Strangler suspect Albert DeSalvo

A major development in the infamous Boston Strangler case happened today. The most well-known suspect in the killings, Albert DeSalvo, confessed to 13 murders in the 1960′s. Despite DeSalvo’s confession, he was never charged because the confession was ruled inadmissible in court. However, DeSalvo was sentenced to life in prison on unrelated charges involving armed robberies and sexual assaults. Now, police say DNA evidence has put them in a position to “formally charge Albert DeSalvo with the murder of Mary Sullivan”, the 1964 murder that is generally believed to be the last Boston Strangler victim.

Referee issues red card in soccer game

Next year Brazil is set to host two of the biggest soccer matches in history (the 2016 Olympics and the World Cup) and given this week’s show of raw emotion, we’re not sure whether we should be excited or fear for our lives. In a northern Brazil soccer game last week, referee Otávio Jordão da Silva issued a red card to player Josenir Santos Abreu and expelled him from the game after a particularly rough play. Displaying a routine soccer game reaction, Abreu argued the call. The argument grew physical and the two began to fight. The referee pulled a knife from his pocket and stabbed the player through the chest (Abreu died in route to the hospital). Fans, including Abreu’s friends and family, reacted and rushed the field where they tied the referee up with rope and began stoning the referee with rocks. As the referee lost conscious. the unruly fans took knives and began dismembering the referee including a particularly gruesome removal of the referee’s head that was mounted on a stick and placed in the center of the soccer field.

Accused Nazi SS commander, 94-year-old Michael Karkoc (1990)

The Associated Press is reporting today that a top commander of a Nazi SS-led unit accused of burning villages filled with women and children, lied to American immigration officials to get into the United States and has been living in a modest house in northeast Minneapolis, in an area with a significant Ukrainian population, since shortly after World War II. Michael Karkoc, 94, told American authorities in 1949 that he had performed no military service during World War II, concealing his work as an officer and founding member of the SS-led Ukrainian Self Defense Legion and later as an officer in the SS Galician Division. The division that Karkoc reportedly commanded, was responsible for “liquidating” the inhabitants of the village of Chlaniow.
