Florida couple Deidre Hunt and her boss/lover Konstantinos Fotopoulos committed the shooting murders of two men. One of which was supposed to kill Fotopoulos’ wife so they could get the insurance money and the other who threatened to blab to the authorities about a counterfeit money scheme they were involved in. This case has so many ridiculous twists and turns it belongs in a Coen brothers movie!
In 1921, in Gun Alley, Melbourne, Australia, a 12 year old girl named Alma Tirtschke was sent by her grandmother to pick up some shopping. However, instead of returning home, she was brutally raped and murdered. The crime shocked the city, and Melbournians were whipped into a frenzy, demanding the culprit be apprehended. A local innkeeper named Colin Ross was questioned and quickly arrested. He was promptly tried and hanged. But was he innocent?
