Guy Fawkes is caught red-handed, Susan B. Anthony votes, George Foreman becomes the oldest heavyweight boxing champion ever, Saddam Hussein is sentenced to death, and tragedy strikes Fort Hood, all on this day.
2003: Green River Killer Gary Ridgway pleads guilty to 48 counts of aggravated first-degree murder as part of a plea bargain that spared him execution in exchange for his cooperation in locating the remains of his victims and providing other details. Ridgway (seen here in a 1982 mugshot) murdered numerous women and girls, most of whom were alleged prostitutes, in Washington state during the 1980s and 1990s, earning his nickname when the first five victims were found in the Green River.
