The 25 Strangest Unsolved Crimes From Latin America

No one knows what happened to Sharon Elizabeth Kinne – known in Mexico simply as La Pistolera.

On March 19, 1960, Kinne’s husband James was found shot in the head with the couple’s two-year-old daughter alive nearby. At the time Kinne told authorities that their daughter had accidentally shot him. She was off the hook until a few months later, when she was suspected of killing 23-year-old Patricia Jones, a local file clerk. Again, she got off, this time traveling to Mexico from the U.S.

In Mexico, Kinne shot and killed Francisco Parades Ordoñez and was convicted in October 1965. Sentenced to 10 years at an Ixtaplapan prison, Kinne escaped from prison during a blackout in 1969. More than 40 years after her escape, Kinne remains at large. She would be 78 years old today if alive and hold the longest outstanding felony warrants in American history.
