  • Jeannie Mills (39), was a female early defector from the Peoples Temple along with her husband and teenage daughter, who were all murdered on 26 February 1980 in front of their Berkeley, California home.[1] The murder is still unsolved.
  • Philadelphia mob boss Angelo Bruno (69), was killed by a shotgun blast to the back of his head as he sat in his car in front of his South Philadelphia house on 21 March 1980. Antonio Caponigro, one of Bruno's underlings, is believed to have ordered the killing over a drug dispute; since the murder had not been sanctioned by the Commission, Caponigro himself was reputedly killed on its orders within a month. However, no suspects have ever been identified as having actually shot Bruno.[2][3]
  • Óscar Romero, the fourth Roman Catholic Archbishop of San Salvador, El Salvador, was killed by a shot to the heart on 24 March 1980, while celebrating Mass at a small chapel located in a hospital. It is believed, but was never proven that the assassins were members of Salvadoran death squads. During the funeral a bomb exploded in Plaza Barrios fronting San Salvador Cathedral, and shots were fired. Many people were killed during the subsequent mass panic.[4]
  • Dorothy Jane Scott (32), disappeared on 28 May 1980, in Anaheim, California after heading to pick up a colleague who had been discharged from the hospital following treatment for a spider bite. Her car was found burnt out in an alleyway 10 miles (16 km) from the hospital the following morning, and her decomposed remains were discovered in August 1984.[5] Her murderer and cause of death remain unknown, but police believe an unidentified male who stalked Scott with harassing phone calls prior to her disappearance and subsequent murder is the likely suspect.
  • The naked and beaten body of Antonio Caponigro (68), nicknamed "Tony Bananas", a Philadelphia mobster, was found in the trunk of a car in the Bronx on 18 April 1980, along with that of his brother-in-law Alfred Salerno. He was believed to have ordered the killing of his own boss, Angelo Bruno, a month earlier over a drug dispute; since he had not gotten the approval of the Commission he was himself killed at their order. No suspects have ever been named.[2]

  • The explosion that killed all 81 on board Itavia Flight 870 near the Italian island of Ustica on 27 June 1980, has been variously attributed to a bomb or a missile strike. Whatever the cause, the investigations have been criticized as ineffective, and no culprits identified. There has also been a series of suspicious deaths, murders or suicides among people involved in or investigating the case,[7] further raising suspicion of a conspiracy.
  • Suzanne Bombardier (14), was a teenager girl who was kidnapped on 22 June 1980, and found dead on 27 June 1980, as body was found floating in the San Joaquin River east of Antioch, California near its bridge, by a fisherman, and her body revealed stab wounds.[8] On 11 December 2017, after extensive DNA analysis, a man named Mitchell Lynn Bacom, who was a convicted sex offender, was arrested and has been charged with her murder.[9] The trial has not yet taken place.
  • John Favara (51), was the backyard neighbor of Gambino crime family crime boss John Gotti, in Howard Beach, New York, who disappeared on 28 July 1980, after he struck and killed Gotti's 12-year-old son, Frank Gotti, by car as he darted into the street on a motorized minibike.[10]
  • Tammy Terrell, a formerly unidentified seventeen-year-old, was discovered on 5 October 1980, in Henderson, Nevada. Authorities believe she may have been the victim of human trafficking.[11]
  • Another Philadelphia mobster believed to have been involved in the Angelo Bruno assassination, Frank Sindone (52), was found dead with three gunshot wounds in the back of his head in a South Philadelphia alley on 29 October 1980.[12] His death is believed to have been ordered by the Commission as punishment for the unsanctioned killing of Bruno, but no suspects have ever been identified.
  • Sherri Jarvis, is a formerly unidentified 14-year-old girl whose body was found on 1 November 1980, in Huntsville, Texas, United States.

She was killed by strangulation and beating, also being sexually assaulted.[13][14]
  • Carol Cole (17), was discovered stabbed to death in Bellevue, Louisiana in January 1981, after her 1980 disappearance. Her body was identified in February 2015. The man who found her, now in prison for killing his wife, is considered a person of interest.[15]
  • The Harris County Does consist of two currently unidentified murdered youths discovered on 12 January 1981, in Houston, Harris County, Texas near Wallisville Road. Extensive investigation has been conducted with few leads, and has been unsuccessful.[16]
  • Philip Testa (56), known as "The Chicken Man", was killed when a nail bomb exploded under his porch as he stepped into his Philadelphia house on 15 March 1981,[17] the second local mob boss to be assassinated within a year. At the time he and several associates were under federal indictment for their activities; Testa's killing sparked a four-year war for control that left 30 other mobsters dead. Two of Testa's underbosses have been described as responsible; however, no actual suspects have ever been named.
  • Thor Nis Christiansen (23), was a Danish-American serial killer from Solvang, California. He committed his first three murders in late 1976 and early 1977, killing young women of similar appearance from nearby Isla Vista.

  • Brenda Gerow (21), was found murdered in early April 1981 in Tucson, Arizona. Her body remained unidentified until 2015 after a photograph of her was found in a convicted killer's possession and led police to believe she was the unidentified victim, based on a resemblance to a facial reconstruction. Gerow was subsequently identified to be the girl in the picture and later confirmed to be the victim through DNA tests. The man who possessed her photograph is considered a person of interest and her murder remains unsolved.[21][22]
  • Marcia King (21), who had been nicknamed "Buckskin Girl" prior to her identification in 2018, was found in Troy, Ohio on 23 April 1981. She had been beaten and strangled to death.[23]

Two years later, police arrested a former crewman and charged him with murder and arson. After the first trial ended in a hung jury, he was acquitted in 1988. No other suspects have ever been named.[49]
  • Kristina Diane Nelson (21), and her stepsister Jacqueline Ann "Brandy" Miller (18), were found dead in a rural area near Kendrick, Idaho. Nelson and Miller had vanished from Lewiston, Idaho on 12 September 1982.[50][51] Pearsall was never located.[52] Police link their deaths with a cluster of other disappearances and murders occurring in the Lewiston–Clarkston metropolitan area between 1979 and 1982.
  • The body of Alisha Heinrich was discovered on 5 December 1982, in the Escatawpa River in Moss Point, Mississippi.

She was raped and decapitated.[59] The brutality of the crime has led to national attention.
  • Peter Ivers, television host and musician, was found bludgeoned to death in his Los Angeles apartment on 3 March 1983. The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) failed to properly secure the crime scene and the murder was never solved,[60] although on the basis of new information found in the book In Heaven Everything Is Fine: The Unsolved Life of Peter Ivers and the Lost History of New Wave Theatre (2008) by Josh Frank and Charlie Buckholtz, the LAPD has reopened their investigation into Ivers' death.
  • On 10 April 1983, Palestinian Liberation Organization peace negotiator Issam Sartawi (48), was shot and killed in the lobby of a Portuguese hotel while attending that year's Socialist International conference.[61][62] The Abu Nidal organization later claimed responsibility, but no arrests have ever been made.
  • On 10 May 1983, Nancy Argentino (23), the girlfriend at the time of professional wrestler Jimmy Snuka died from being attacked. Thirty-two years later Snuka was indicted and arrested in September 2015 on third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter charges, in relation to Argentino's death. Snuka pleaded not guilty,[63][64] but was ultimately found unfit to stand trial in June 2016 due to being diagnosed with dementia.[65] As his health declined,[66] the charges were dismissed on 3 January 2017, and he died twelve days later.

  • The Newton County John Does, also dubbed Adam and Brad (or simply as Victims A and B) are two young unidentified males whose remains were discovered with those of two other men on 18 October 1983, in Lake Village, Newton County, Indiana by mushroom foragers.[69] Their nicknames were given by Newton County coroner Scott McCord, elected in 2008, to remember that they were people. He learned that the "victims had never been identified, returned to any family or buried". McCord renewed the investigation, recruiting Stephen Nawrocki, a noted forensic anthropologist at the University of Indianapolis, to examine the remains and help develop descriptions of the victims. Nawrocki also gained the assistance of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, whose experts drew portraits of the young men.
  • On 13 November 1983, Canadian mobster Paul Volpe (56), was murdered and found dead the next day in the trunk of his wife's BMW at Toronto Pearson International Airport; Pietro Scarcella is said to have been the last person to see Volpe alive before his unsolved murder.[70] Johnny Papalia has also been linked with Volpe's death, but no charges were laid.[71]
  • Karl Brugger (41), was a German foreign correspondent for the ARD network and author,[72] best known for his book The Chronicle of Akakor about the alleged lost city of Akakor that was published in 1976.[73] Brugger was shot down in Rio de Janeiro on 3 January 1984, after being shot several times,[74] while walking with his friend Ulrich Encke at Ipanema beach.[75] Neither his killer, nor the motive for his killing is known.[76]

Later named Baby John, the police investigation became known as the Kerry Babies case after it led to a young woman in nearby Abbeydorney who was mistakenly charged with the crime along with her family. While she had in fact hidden the corpse of a baby she gave birth to who died of undetermined causes shortly afterwards, she was found to have no connection to the Cahirseveen baby, whose identity and killer remains unknown.[78]

  • The strangled bodies of Margaret Tapp (35), and her daughter Seana (9), were found at their home in Melbourne's Ferntree Gully neighborhood on 7 August 1984; Seana had been sexually assaulted.[83] Two suspects were cleared after their DNA did not match that left at the scene; the case was reopened in the 2010s.
  • Lenny Breau (42), was a music teacher and guitarist. His body was found floating in the swimming pool at his Los Angeles apartment complex on 12 August 1984; the coroner's office found that he had been strangled. While his wife was suspected, she was never charged, and no one else has been.[84]
  • Christine Jessop (8), of Queensville, Ontario, was raped and murdered in October 1984. Her next-door neighbour, Guy Paul Morin, was convicted of the crime in 1992 but DNA testing led to a subsequent overturning of this verdict in 1995.[85][86]
  • After an anonymous caller to the house of Grégory Villemin (4), of Lépanges-sur-Vologne, France, told his family on 16 October 1984, he had taken the boy, who had been playing unsupervised in front of the house, a search found Grégory's body, bound and gagged, in the Vologne River 7 km (4.3 mi) away, where he had apparently been drowned (although the autopsy suggested the drowning had occurred in a different body of water). This began a case that has continued to receive extensive national media attention. An anonymous note suggesting the writer had killed the boy led to the arrest of Bernard Laroche, a Villemin cousin, who was now suspected of having written a long string of threatening anonymous letters to members of the family, socially and economically prominent in that area of the Vosges. Grégory's father, Jean-Marie, shot and killed Laroche several months later; he would serve several years in prison as a result. Handwriting experts then linked Grégory's mother to the notes; she was charged with the murders but, after seven years and two trials, acquitted. Efforts to recover DNA from the principal evidence in the early 21st century failed, but in 2017 three of Grégory's other relatives were charged, although police say they do not yet know who actually killed him.[87]

On December 26, 1984, during one such protest in Kardzhali, soldiers started shooting at the protesters, one of them killing 1-year-old Türkan Feyzullah. Nobody has ever been charged in her murder.[91]
  • The bombing of a Madrid restaurant on 12 April 1985, killed 18,[92][93][94] making it at the time the deadliest terrorist attack in Spain since the Spanish Civil War. Responsibility has been claimed by both domestic groups such as the ETA and radical Muslim groups, all of whom it is believed may have been wanting to target the restaurant since it was popular with U.S. Air Force personnel from a nearby base. The investigation is continuing.
  • Tony "Spaghetti" Eustace, Australian fugitive, was found murdered on 23 April 1985, after he had been shot six times.[95][96] He was found dead by two schoolchildren who were returning home from sports training at about 7 pm. The murder remains unsolved.
  • In June 1985, a bomb at Germany's Frankfurt Airport killed three, with several Islamic organizations taking credit; the Abu Nidal Organization is believed to have been the real perpetrator, but no arrests have ever been made.[97]
  • Haruo Ignacio Remeliik (52), was a politician from Palau. He served as the first President of Palau from 2 March 1981, until his assassination on 30 June 1985.[98] In March 2000, former presidential candidate and convicted felon John O. Ngiraked claimed responsibility for the conspiracy to kill Remeliik,[99] but has not yet been charged with his murder, so the case is not yet solved.
  • On 1 July, a bombing of several international airline offices in Madrid was followed by a submachine gun attack on another nearby airline office, killing one. Representatives of several Muslim groups claimed credit; it is today believed by some to have been perpetrated by the Abu Nidal Organization.

  • The Rev. Niall Molloy (52), a Catholic priest, was found beaten to death in the master bedroom of Kilcoursey House in Clara, County Offaly, Ireland on 8 July 1985. There were signs of a struggle and evidence that the body had been moved. Richard Flynn, the owner and a longtime friend of Molloy's, confessed the killing to the garda but, at trial, the judge granted the defense a directed verdict of not guilty after merely four hours, believing the medical evidence insufficient to support a manslaughter charge. A coroner's jury later found that Molloy died of head injuries, which led to calls to reopen the case. In subsequent years, it emerged that the investigation had been perfunctory, leaving much evidence unexamined and witness uninterviewed; a 2011 review of the surviving medical evidence found it highly likely that Molloy had survived his injuries for several hours, which raised the question of why emergency services were not called until after he was dead. In 2015 the Irish government declined to open a review, since many of the original witnesses had since died and it did not think any new information would be obtained; Molloy's relatives felt otherwise.[102]
  • Tscherim Soobzokov (61), was a Circassian man accused of collaborating with Nazi Germany during the invasion of the Soviet Union and serving as a Waffen-SS officer.[103] Soobzokov denied these charges and sued CBS and The New York Times.[104] On 15 August 1985, a pipe bomb set outside his home in Paterson, New Jersey critically injured Soobzokov.[105][106] He died of his wounds in the hospital on 9 September 1985.[107] An anonymous caller claiming to represent the Jewish Defense League (JDL) said they had carried out the bombing. A spokesman for the JDL later denied responsibility.[108] No one was ever charged with his murder.
  • Alex Odeh (41), an Arab-American anti-discrimination activist who was killed on 11 October 1985[109] during a bombing incident that occurred at his office in Santa Ana, California. The murder remains unsolved.
  • 28 People were killed (and 22 injured) in a series of violent armed robberies in shops, restaurants and supermarkets in Belgium between 1982 and 1985, most of them in the Province of Brabant. They were perpetrated by a gang of 3 called the Brabant killers or the "Nijvel gang". Despite decades of investigations (initially chaotic) the Belgian authorities failed to catch them or even make serious inroads into solving the case, leading to conspiracy theories that state actors were somehow involved in the crimes. It remains Belgium's most notorious unsolved crime spree.
  • Dian Fossey (53), was an American primatologist and conservationist known for undertaking an extensive study of mountain gorilla groups from 1966 until her murder on December 6, 1985; she was found bludgeoned to death with visible machete wounds.[110] The perpetrators have not been identified, although they are believed to have been poachers opposed to her conservation efforts.

  • Daniel Morgan, was a private investigator who was murdered in Sydenham, south-east London, on 10 March 1987, by an axe blow to the back of the head.[127] He was said to have been close to exposing police corruption, or involved with Maltese drug dealers. Morgan's death has been the subject of several failed police inquiries, and in 2011 it was at the centre of allegations concerning the suspect conduct of journalists with the British tabloid News of the World. This unsolved murder has been described as a reminder of the culture of corruption and unaccountability within the Metropolitan Police Service, London's main police force.
  • A body found 11 June 1987, in Fort Collins, Colorado, field turned out to be that of Peggy Hettrick (37). She had been stabbed and "sexually mutilated." Police initially suspected Timothy Masters, a teenage boy who lived nearby, and eventually arrested him a decade later. His 1999 conviction was vacated in 2008 when physical evidence that had been withheld from the defense at his original trial was found to rule him out as a suspect.[128] Two other individuals, one of whom took his own life in 1995, have been described as possible suspects. The case remains open.
  • In July 1987, in a case dubbed the Viking Sally murder mystery, German tourist Klaus Schelkle (20), was murdered and his girlfriend Bettina Taxis (22) seriously injured, on board the cruise ferry MS Viking Sally, en route from Stockholm, Sweden, to Turku, Finland.[129] In December 2020, charges were filed against a 1969-born Danish man who was among those discovering the victims. The suspect denies any guilt.
  • Don Henry (16) and Kevin Ives (17) – on 23 August 1987, a 75-car, 6,000-ton Union Pacific locomotive en route to Little Rock, Arkansas spotted two boys lying motionless across the tracks,[130] who were run over by the oncoming train.

  • On 17 November 1987, police found the beaten bodies of Elaine Dardeen (30), and her son Peter (3), as well as a newborn female infant to whom she had apparently given birth prematurely during the attack, tucked into bed in the family mobile home south of Ina, Illinois.[133] Her husband Keith (29) was the prime suspect until his body was found in a nearby wheat field the next day. After shooting him, the killer had cut his penis off. Nothing of value was taken from the home and Elaine had not been raped, nor were police able to find any other evidence that might have suggested a motive. In 2000, serial killer Tommy Lynn Sells confessed to the crime; however, he was never charged as there were doubts about his confession and authorities in Texas, where he was imprisoned, would not allow him to be taken to Illinois to resolve them before he was executed in 2014. No other suspects have ever been named.
  • The decomposing body of Deanna Criswell (16), was found off Interstate 10 near Tucson, Arizona, on 23 November 1987.[134] She had been there for any time from several days to several weeks. She remained unidentified for 28 years until DNA tests matched her with her family in Spokane, Washington; they had not reported her disappearance at the time because she habitually ran away only to return later. Another DNA profile at the scene matched that of the main suspect in her death, William Ross Knight, a local criminal who had died in 2005.
  • Alexander Harris (7), of Mountain View, California, vanished from the video arcade of Whiskey Pete's Hotel and Casino in Primm, Nevada, on 27 November 1987.

Despite not entirely believing the story told them by Spencer's companion that night, police said he was not a suspect. No one else has ever been named in connection with the crime.[141]
  • Two Victoria Police constables, Steven Tynan, 22, and Damian Eyre, 20, were shot and killed in an apparently planned ambush as they responded to a report of an abandoned car early on the morning of 12 October 1988, in the Melbourne suburb of South Yarra.[142] Police suspected six members of the local Pettingill gang of having carried out the killing in response to recent police killings of other gang members which they believed to have been premeditated. Two were themselves killed when police attempted to arrest them; the other four were tried and acquitted. In 2005 the widow of one of the acquitted men said in an interview that she believed her late husband was guilty. The case later inspired the 2010 film Animal Kingdom and the similarly named American TV series.
  • Skeletal remains found 11 November 1988, off a road near Lake Nasworthy outside San Angelo, Texas turned out to be the bodies of Sally McNelly (18), and Shane Stewart (17), missing since they had last been seen on the lakeshore, alone, the night of the previous 4 July. Both had been shot in the head. Local rumor at the time connected the killings to a supposed Satanic cult the two had been involved in and were trying to get out of, but no arrests were ever made. In 2017, a drug arrest led police to identify a local person of interest.[143]
  • Julie Ward was murdered in Kenya on 6 September 1988, while on safari in the Maasai Mara game reserve. Her burnt and dismembered body was found a week later.

  • Seymour and Arlene Tankleff were found murdered in their Long Island home on 17 September 1988. Their 17-year-old son Martin was charged with the crime and convicted, a verdict overturned on appeal in 2004; the state decided in 2008 not to retry him.[146] His lawyers accused the police detective who originally arrested Martin of having lied during the investigation to cover for a business associate who they believe was the actual killer; he denies it. Neither the business associate nor anyone else have ever been formally named as a suspect.[147]

She had been abused and strangled to death, then tied to a nearby railing with her own clothes. Her murder was the second in a series of three murders that occurred in the area, initially thought to be the work of a serial killer, but the two other cases were later found to be unrelated. The investigation into her killing was the largest in Austrian history, but to this day, nobody has been convicted. Authorities suspected that Herbert P., the man who killed one of the other two victims in the so-called "Favoriten Girl Murders", is responsible for her death.[151]

  • Canadian-American weapons designer Gerald Bull (62), died in Brussels, Belgium, on 22 March 1990, two days after being shot several times near his apartment. It has been speculated that the Israeli Mossad was behind his death, as they may have believed his work for Saddam Hussein's Iraq might allow that country to develop weapons that could be used against their country, after he had refused to work with Israel. Other theories have implicated Iraq itself, Iran, the U.S. or other countries he was known to have dealt with. The identities of the killers remain unknown.[168]

  • Five boys aged 9 through 13 went to the woods around South Korea's Mount Waryong on 26 March 1991, to hunt for salamanders (which became known as frogs because salamanders were not known that well at that time) and never returned. Despite a massive search of the mountain and surroundings, their bodies were not found until 2002, after an anonymous phone call led police to an area that had already been searched near the boys' village. At first, it was theorized that they had died of exposure, a conclusion disputed by their families since the boys knew that area well and their clothes had been tied in knots. An autopsy showed that four had died of blows to the head and the other had been killed with a shotgun. Although the statute of limitations on the case expired in 2006, police continue to investigate for historical reasons.[186]
  • On Monday, 1 April 1991, at 23:30, Detlev Rohwedder, president of the German organization Treuhandanstalt, was shot and killed,[187] through a window on the first floor of his house in the suburb of Düsseldorf-Niederkassel by the first of three rifle shots. West German far-left militant group Red Army Faction (RAF) claimed responsibility for this act, but the sniper was never identified. In 2001, a DNA analysis found that hair strands from the crime scene belonged to RAF member Wolfgang Grams. However, the attorney general did not consider this evidence sufficient to name Grams as a suspect of the killing.
  • Karmein Chan (13), was abducted from her family's home in Templestowe, Victoria on 13 April 1991, by an unidentified man who was later dubbed "Mr. Cruel" by Melbourne newspapers. Her body was discovered on 9 April 1992, in Thomastown; she had been shot in the head. Although Victoria Police knew a great deal about the perpetrator from previous, non-fatal child abductions and rapes dating back to 1985,[188] there has never been enough evidence to charge any of the 27,000 men interviewed at the time.[189] The case is still open, with a second police operation, Taskforce Apollo, formed in 2010 to examine new evidence and material from the original Operation Spectrum.[190] If the perpetrator is still alive, he would be between approximately 60 and 75 years old in 2014.[191] The murder of Karmein Chan is still one of the most extensive and expensive investigations in Victorian history, with a combination of investigative errors and the perpetrator's precautions preventing his identification and arrest.[192]

  • Igor Talkov (34), was a Russian rock singer-songwriter,[200] who was shot backstage at the Yubileiny concert hall in Leningrad on 6 October 1991.[201] While Valeriy Schlyafman, Talkov's one time manager, was found guilty of the murder by a Russian court, he fled via Ukraine to Israel before he could be arrested.[202] He remains in Israel to this day, insisting he is not guilty of the crime while Israel refuses to extradite him. Schlyafman and his supporters have claimed that the KGB orchestrated the murder. Since no one has been charged and it is unclear for sure who the true killer is, the case remains unsolved.

No other suspects have ever been named although the investigation is continuing.[205]
  • Katrien De Cuyper (15), disappeared on her way home in Antwerp, Belgium, on the night of 17 December 1991. Her body was found buried in the port of Antwerp six months later. In 1997, Regina Louf confessed to killing De Cuyper while being part of a "paedophile network", but no concrete evidence was found to support her testimony.[85] In 2006, a 35-year-old man was arrested and charged with De Cuyper's kidnapping and murder after it was established that he had written anonymous letters about her to a magazine, but he was later released due to a lack of evidence.[206]

  • Anjelica Castillo (4), was discovered in a cooler in Manhattan, New York on 23 July 1991, several days after her death. The victim remained unidentified for 22 years. Her cousin, Conrado Juarez, was arrested for her murder and sexual assault after the remains were identified in 2013.

  • Exiled Iranian dissident Fereydoun Farrokhzad (53), was found dead of multiple stab wounds in his house in Bonn, Germany, on 13 August 1992. The autopsy established that he had been killed five days earlier. No one has ever been named as a suspect although it is widely believed that he was killed at the behest of the Iranian government.[214] Prior to his murder, Farrokzhad had been involved in producing an opposition radio program and reportedly received death threats. In his show at the Royal Albert Hall in London, he had criticized Ruhollah Khomeini and made fun of Khomeini's obsession with sex in his Ressaleh book. He had consequently received death threats and there were concerns for his safety.[215]
  • Piotr Jaroszewicz (82), a former Prime Minister of Communist Poland, was found murdered along with his wife Alicja Solska at their home in the Warsaw suburb of Anin on 3 September 1992. He had been strangled with a belt, which was still around his neck, after being beaten; his wife had been shot several times with one of the couple's hunting rifles after her hands were tied behind her back. She may have injured one of their attackers, who apparently also tried to kill the couple's dog with poison gas, while fighting back. A safe was left open and documents were taken from it while valuables were left behind. The killings were found to have occurred two days before; friends and family say that Jaroszewicz, who was obsessed with security to begin with, had been acting extremely paranoid in the days before the murders. No suspects have been named.[216]
  • German politicians Gert Bastian and Petra Kelly (Die Grünen) were found dead in their house in Bonn in October 1992.[217] They were both shot in the head.

  • Brett Cantor (25), part-owner of the Dragonfly nightclub in Hollywood, was found stabbed to death in his nearby home on 30 July 1993;[231] no suspects have ever been identified.[232] The case gained renewed attention a year later when O. J. Simpson's defense team successfully petitioned the court trying him for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson, his ex-wife, and Ronald Goldman, for access to the case file, on the grounds that the way in which all three were stabbed suggested the same killer.[233] Since Goldman had worked for Cantor as a waiter, and Nicole Simpson was a regular at Dragonfly, some books about the case have raised the possibility that the three killings may also have resulted from involvement in drug trafficking.[234][235][236]
  • The body of Holly Piirainen (10), was found on 23 October 1993, in the woods of Brimfield, Massachusetts. She had disappeared in August while visiting her grandparents in nearby Sturbridge.

Since Nigg was a friend of Ronald Goldman, with whom he had worked, and seemed to live quite well for someone in his position, leading to some reports that he was involved in drug trafficking, his death has been used to support theories that the murders of Goldman and O. J. Simpson's ex-wife Nicole the year before were drug-related as well.

The investigation became a political issue with opponents of the Suharto regime claiming the dictator himself or other government officials were behind it as retaliation for his reporting on their misdeeds, while the government and police suggested it had been the work of a jealous husband. A suspect arrested on the latter theory was later acquitted, protesting his innocence as his trial revealed some investigation shortcomings, among them that he had been pressured to confess. The police have declined to investigate the case further, saying their responsibility was fulfilled when they arrested the original suspect.
  • American hip hop artist Tupac Shakur (25), was shot four times by unknown assailants in a drive-by shooting after attending the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson boxing match in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, succumbing to his injuries on September 13.[301]

The main suspect, Ian Bailey, has been questioned twice by the Irish authorities in relation to the murder, but the DPP (Director of Public Prosecutions) decided not to prosecute. In early April 2010, the French authorities issued an arrest warrant for Bailey. Later that month, the Gardaí in Ireland arrested Bailey and brought him in front of the High Court in Dublin to appeal his extradition.[305][306] The court sided with Bailey in his appeal in 2012; Bailey then brought a civil suit against the Garda, alleging improprieties in the investigation, which he subsequently lost.[307] Bailey is now expected to be tried in France for the murder during the first half of 2019.[308]
  • JonBenét Ramsey (6), American girl who had competed in child beauty pageants, was found dead in the basement of her parents' home in Boulder, Colorado, on 26 December 1996, nearly eight hours after a ransom note was apparently found and she was reported missing. The coroner listed cause of death as "asphyxia due to strangulation, associated with" a broken skull and concussion. Police suspected the parents of staging the ransom note and strangulation to cover up an accidental killing by either the mother or nine-year-old brother. A 1999 grand jury recommended charging the parents with obstruction and endangerment, but the district attorney declined to prosecute. Discovery of trace DNA from an unknown male in 2003[309] led a new district attorney in 2008 to write an apology to the Ramseys, declaring them "cleared of any involvement".[310] Contradictory evidence seems to support both the family and outside intruder theories, and after several independent investigations, the case is still unsolved as of February 2020.[311]

Cutting marks on the bones, along with slash and puncture marks on a bra found near the body, led investigators to conclude she had been stabbed to death. The case remains open.[325]
  • Jane Thurgood-Dove (34), was shot outside her car, in full view of her young children, as she pulled into the driveway of her home in the Melbourne suburb of Niddrie on 6 November 1997; the killer escaped into a waiting getaway car which was found burnt shortly afterwards not too far away.[326] Her husband and a police official believed to have been infatuated with her have been eliminated as suspects. More recently a theory has been floated that the killers were members of a local biker gang who had mistaken her for their real target, another local woman of similar appearance married to a fellow criminal. Police believe that the shooter and getaway car driver have since died of a heart attack and boating accident, respectively; they have offered the remaining participant immunity if he testifies against the man who they believe ordered the killing.[327]

  • Stephanie Crowe (12), was found stabbed to death in her bedroom in Escondido, California on the morning of 21 January 1998. Since there were no signs of forced entry, police focused on and eventually arrested her older brother Michael and two friends; however, charges against them were abruptly dismissed when later lab tests found several drops of Crowe's blood on a local transient. He was tried and convicted, but the conviction was overturned on appeal and a 2013 retrial acquitted him. The Crowe family reached a legal settlement with San Diego County over the wrongful prosecution of their son. No other suspects have been named.[329]

He had been shot through the right eye. Since no money or valuables were taken, this led to theories that the killer or killers had intended to avenge the death of Rudi Arnstadt, an East German border guard Plüschke had killed with a similar shot during a 14 August 1962, shootout[336] during Plüschke's service as a West German border guard, which got him sentenced to 25 years in prison in absentia by an East German court; West Germany insisted the shooting had been justified as return fire and never extradited him. Plüschke had publicly identified himself as the shooter two years earlier and reportedly received regular death threats afterwards. A Special Commission formed by the German police to investigate was dissolved a year later when it exhausted all its leads; the case remains open.
  • On 25 March 1998, NASCAR driver Chris Trickle (24), died of injuries sustained in a Las Vegas drive-by shooting on 9 February 1997.
