15. The murder of Mary Klinsky
It took more than 50 years to identify the probable killer of Mary Klinsky, an 18-year-old high school student who was found raped and beaten to death close to Telegraph Hill Park in Holmdel, New Jersey in 1965. Thanks to cutting-edge DNA technology, investigators linked her death to Robert Zarinsky, a New Jersey serial killer jailed in 1975 who died in custody in 2008. In fact, Zarinsky may have killed as many as ten women.
14. The abduction of Kamiyah Mobley
Kamiyah Mobley was snatched from her 16-year-old mother, Shanara, just hours after her birth. On July 10, 1998, a woman dressed in a nurse’s smock entered Shanara’s hospital room, chatted with Shanara and then slyly abducted the newborn. Astonishingly, Kamiyah was located 18 years later thanks to DNA tests. Brought up as Alexis Manigo, she had allegedly been kidnapped by a woman called Gloria Williams, who had lost her own child in a miscarriage. Kamiyah was reunited with her biological parents in January 2017. Williams’ trial is scheduled for February 2018.
