    No not DeSalvo. He is British and in one respect he was fortunate.


    Perhaps a murderer who would not face the death penalty?

    It wasn't his line of work which made him (in)famous. As you said "Cute boy. He's not"


    Was the action(s) that made him infamous pre-1970?

    Well done wadsy, it is Christopher Craig. Almost 58 years ago he shot and killed policeman Sidney Miles, he was too young to be executed so he was "Detained at her Majesty's pleasure" His companion was 19 year-old Derek Bentley, although he had already been arrested when the shot was fired he was sentenced to death and sent to the gallows.
