A True Crime Shortie of 6,000 words... about the length of a long magazine article
Yeah, they've mostly been superceded by DNA lately. But back in the day, there was nothing like a good clear fingerprint to get a law enforcement officer's blood moving. Here are four true crime fingerprint cases pulled from history.
- The first crimes solved through fingerprints... includes Francesca Rojas (1892), Harry Jackson (1902), and the Mask Murders (1905). Yeah, three in one.
- The Question Mark Burglar... an unbelievable case from 1920.
- When the victim's fingerprints count the most... the Urschel kidnapping case from 1933.
- Beyond bizarre... the strange case of cop-killer George Ross (1951).
