    100 years ago - 1917 November 25 - Louise-Josephine Jaume vanishes after leaving to meet Henri Landru. She is believed to be the ninth of, at least, 11 victims of the Frenchman whose ploy was to seduce lonely older women then murder them after gaining control of their insurance and assets. He was finally beheaded on the guillotine in 1922 and his severed head is currently on display in a Los Angeles museum.

    100 years ago - 1918 February 10 - In England, sixteen-year-old Nellie Trew is found deceased. It was determined that she'd been raped and strangled. Items left near the body gave the case its name, the Button and Badge Murder. David Greenwood, 21, was convicted of the killing and sentenced to hang but this was reduced due to his mental state which was blamed on his service in the Great War. He was released from prison in 1933.
