Mozart and Monet die, the 21st Amendment repealing prohibition is ratified, the Montgomery Bus Boycott begins, and O.J. Simpson heads to prison, all on this day.
1991: Richard Speck, the mass murderer who killed eight student nurses from South Chicago Community Hospital in a Chicago dormitory on July 14, 1966, dies of a heart attack one day before his 50th birthday at Silver Cross Hospital in Joliet, Illinois. He had been sentenced to death, but that sentence was later overturned due to issues with jury selection at his trial and he was instead sentenced to life in prison.
