Lethal taxi 

Two brothers on the Bermuda Islands were slain by the same taxi with the same driver and the same passenger driving the same moped through the streets  – but with one difference, there was one year difference between each accident.
Erskine Lawrence Ebbin Neville and his brother were both coincidentally 17 years old.


In 1932 booze smuggler “Dutch” Schultz commissioned a murder the 23-year-old Vincent “Mad Dog” Coll, who was assassinated on 23rd Street in New York. Schultz himself was on October 23, 1935, and his killer Charlie Workman had 23 been in jail when he was paroled.

Wild  Goose

In November 1974 the family of Noel McCabe was listening to an album of Frankie Lane. Lane just sang “Wild Goose” as a wild goose flew through a window in the room.

Falling babies

In the spring of 1975 in Detroit a baby fell from the 14th floor of an apartment atop Figlock Joseph, who just passed. A year later the same thing happened. Both John and the two babies lived to tell it.
