49 Huggers" murder. Guy stalks a couple because of their license plate (??) and then kills the man
Okay, this may be an unpopular opinion here....but that "49 Hugs" one always bugged me. Let me be clear that it is very sad that a life was lost. However....that guy who was being pursued by some randonm killer had SO MANY opportunities to walk away or drive to a police station or avoid the whole confrontation.

It seemed to be some randon killer out for jollies - I am a Minnesota Vikings fan and yes we like to tease Packer fans, and vise versa - but no one ever hunts anyone down with a gun due to their NFL preference.

I don't believe in the license plate theory in that case. I agree with you, I don't see how or why anyone would just kill someone based off of what NFL team they liked. Unless of course it was some sort of divisional playoff game where alcohol was involved, etc. I don't see someone going through these lengths just to kill someone based off of a license plate. Plus, Dick didn't have the license plate, his date "Jean" did so why shoot Dick and then drive by "Jean"? What UM did not mention in the Dick Hansen segment was that he and "Jean" were parked in front of mailboxes when this guy pulled up behind them. Another theory presented at the time of his murder (it's on the web on some news article archive) was that this guy was pissed because Dick and Jean were blocking the mailboxes for an extended period of time and he simply snapped because of it. Then when Dick approached him and cussed him out the man shot him. And believe it or not I think that's exactly what happened. Some psychopath with a short fuse who just so happened to be set off by impatience.

The reason that case bothered me so much is I didn't want to believe it at first. Then, ten years later, I had a crazy guy chase me down a dark road. I called 911 on my phone and the cops got involved. When he was caught, he said that he didn't like my college team and I had a bumper sticker supporting them.

There are some seriously psycho people out there...

Another case I forgot to include in my original post:
The Human Time Bomb. The story and the composite just freaked me out!!!

In regards to that whole 49-er Hugs story, I am wondering if there was a connection to the woman in the story. Were they both unmarried or recently separated? It has been a while since I saw it but I thought there could have been something along those lines.

Ethel Kidd. So sad.

Dick was divorced and from what I've read, Jean was single. I for one believe in the license plate theory - there are MAJOR psychos who have roamed the Earth, take for example Tommy DeSimone (portrayed by Joe Pesci in Goodfellas) who would kill anyone for one reason or another. Or Henry Lee Lucas who would drive from state to state, simply killing anyone who he wanted too for no reason.

Mine are:

Patricia Meehan - that self-potrait!

Boys on the Tracks - when they showed the man in camo skulking around

Cindy James - pretty much the whole segment

Sherry Eyerly - the remote location where she was attacked while delivering the pizzas

Gail Delano - the update that revealed how she flew to a different state and committed suicide

Jessica Keen - when she was being chased through the dark cemetery

49erhugs is a strange case. It is likely to be one of the more unsolvable murder cases I've ever seen on the show if it is indeed close to being 100% accurate.

I just watched it earlier today. definitely one of the more memorable segments because of the randomness that was portrayed. I find it hard to believe as well, but then again how many of these cases have I found hard to believe only to find out the people were honest victims(ala dorothy donovan which is another disturbing feature). the whole thing with this one is so weird. how did the guy end up there in the first place? was he at the same bar and just was a drunk disgruntled fan? if that were the case I could see it being possible to have played out the way it did. I don't remember the case stating how the guy got behind them in the first place....they just said he was there when they approached their vehicle. as far as sports...yes people take it too far. like the dodgers fans that beat a giants fan nearly to the death. like every crowd you have that small percentage of people who are psychotic and if they are passionate about something it can set them off enough to do something like that. of corse alcohol or drugs would cause them to lose their guilt or inner self that could stop them if they are not under the influence.

this case sort of reminds me of the connecticut woman that was shot by a random driver on a rural road. of corse that remained unsolved as well. I think it is just some extremely drunk or high crazy psychopath that was out to harm innocent people for no particular reason. the only difference with this case is there were other witnesses who could validate the suspect's actions.

IIRC the man pulled up behind Dick and Jean when they were outside of the bar chatting with one another. I honestly think this guy was a psycho who snapped because they were taking their time chatting with each other, blocking a mailbox he was attempting to use. Something snapped and he decided to follow them. I think when Dick approached the man he told him he was following them because they were blocking the mailbox too long. Hell, for all we know the guy could have pulled up and beeped his horn a couple of times and Dick or Jean could have flipped him the bird and this set him off as well. UM is known for leaving out crucial details and it wouldn't surprise me if this was something that was left out.

Who was the lady from Phoenix who was shot in the head in her own home? While she slept? Her hubby had been super wealthy and left all his money to her and cut his own kids out of the will. UM left that second part out - I believe I saw it on Cold Case Files or Dateline or something similiar.

That one disturbed me as it was so frightening to think that someone could break into my home (undetected), shoot me in the head THEN set off the alarm on the way out.

I believe police though the man's oldest son was respinsible for the hit but could not prove it.

Jeannie Touvrea? I think I spelled it wrong - but you folks will know the correct spelling and details!

Jeanne Tovrea, I believe. I know they found the actual killer, but never discovered if it really was a hit. They couldn't prove it.

Yes that was her. And the other crime show I saw (City Confidential?) said that her hubby said, in so many words in his will: "My kids are worthless money hungry offspring who have disappointed me. I love my awesome wife!"

Okay, so I paraphrase......but way to pit your kids against each your wife!

something about that image perfectly summarizes the mystery in this case. i often wonder what was going through her mind just minutes before she took that picture- just because of the confused look on her face.

yeah, it's almost like she's looking through something, and that's even creepier!

Agreed, if it went down the way the witness said.

In any case, it seems they are at it again: http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/F...o-49ers-011512
