    Yes it was that's how he was convicted,the detective went into a pub and he spotted a picture on the wall,asked who is this man he was a darts player.The recording studio had to go through the archives for the show he appeared on and they did eventually come up trumps and nailed him

    A very famous one is the crimes of the golden state killer from 1976 to 86 in california.

    He was only caught last year.

    I have mentioned it before in that other thread, but James Bulger would be around 30 years of age now if he had lived - he could have been married by now with a family of his own, and obviously that will never happen. The same with other child murder victims - the death of a person so young means no future family can exist.

    Re: The Pasts Most Serious Crimes

    I have been watching old editions of Crimewatch UK, and funnily enough, there was a reconstruction from an early 1990s edition (probably 1991) that resembled that bus station toilet murder - the victim was visiting someone in hospital, and paid the price as a result of missing the bus home and having to wait half an hour for the next one, only she didn't get the next one. She went in the ladies' and she didn't come out alive.

    Another Crimewatch reconstruction was the murder of Sheila Egner who was an assistant at a Yeomans army surplus store on Mansfield Road in Nottingham on Friday 26th July 1991 - it was a robbery where she was killed. The man escaped with the takings in a box and was never seen again. The Murder posters were placed on the windows of local buses, community centre noticeboards, and other places as well for the remainder of the year at least. Cue the reconstruction showing a very nostalgic early 1990s view of Mansfield Road north of the City Centre.

    Oh, and on a Saturday around the same time, (must have been Saturday 10th August 1991 as we had Day Rider passes on that day), we witnessed a robbery in a local jewellery shop in Nottingham City Centre, and I can even remember the model and registration number of the getaway car to this very day. Don't worry - we weren't hurt or anything - we just happened to be there. Central News covered it, and even Police 5 did - I wanted to record it, but my sister wanted to watch Top of the Pops instead, so I missed it.

    I find it difficult to believe that any right minded parents would harm their baby girl .. just makes no kind of sense to me ..

    If the parents were both low life heroin addicts or something ... but they were intelligent , law abiding people..

    I remember the Portuguese police had them listed as suspects for a long time after but seemingly didn't have any evidence against them.

    Also if that had got away with it would they have kept such a high profile in the years since?
