On Your Birthday....  
Not on the actual day, necessarily, but did anything famous (or infamous) happen on your birthday? One when you were alive is what I'm aiming for.

Why this question, you may ask? Well, I was switching channels this afternoon and landed on Bio when they were showing an episode of "Notorious" which was about a murder that happened on my 10th birthday in my town. Some of you may know of it, especially if you have an interest in true crime. The other weird thing? The convicted murderer was living in my new town when he turned himself in.

That's interesting. But what about the real evidence? Blood, semen, fingerprints, footprints, etc.? I used to watch a lot of those true crime-forensic file shows, and this is the sort of thing that would convince me, not some sort of confession that was coerced.

I'm not saying that this guy didn't do it, I just want to read about some factual evidence. The wiki article didn't cover any of that.

In it's connection to where you were living and your birthday, it is a little strange.

From what I remember, there never really was any concrete evidence that pointed at him. https://www.google.com/#q=michael%20skakel&fp=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&cad=b

Well, even famous people should have a fair trial. From this and poking around a bit on the interwebs, it doesn't seem like he did.

Of course, the real victim is dead and can't speak for herself. The local police should have called in the state bureau of investigation right away, because it looks like the local police force didn't know how to handle a major crime scene or how to investigate it.
