What are some mass murderers that got away? A lot of them kill themselves like school shooters. Are there some who killed many in one place and are still wanted?

With the advent of social media and better crime-fighting technology, it's much harder to commit mass murders and get away with them these days. But it does still happen. The Lane Bryant murders which occurred in 2008 is a more modern example. It's amazing to me that this guy got away and is still on the loose. You would've thought there'd be security cameras inside the store and even some focused on the parking lot where they could have shot pictures of the suspect.

I'm well aware of that. Some topics transcend politics. This is one of them.

There is an unsolved massacre of six people (a couple and their four children) which took place in Yuma, Arizona in 2005.

La Mesa Murder Investigation

The 1982 massacre of eight people aboard a fishing boat in the small town of Craig, Alaska used to be fairly notorious, though interest has waned after 30+ years. No one has ever been convicted in that case.


A Look Back At Alaska's Worst Unsolved Mass Murder


I don't believe the LaGuardia airport bombing was ever solved. Next year will be its 40th anniversary. Eleven people died in that attack, which I have read made it the deadliest murder case in New York City between the Wall Street bombing of 1920 (38 dead) and the Happy Land club fire of 1990 (87 dead), though I can't completely verify that.

Also, one of Europe's most wanted fugitives is Xavier Dupont de Ligonnes, who is suspected of drugging his wife and four teenaged children in the French city of Nantes before shooting them, and burying them under quicklime beneath a back porch. This was in April 2011. He also shot the family dogs before fleeing. The murder was not discovered for several days after the fact, giving him time to leave the region.

Since then, there has been an international manhunt, stretching all the way to the Republic of Congo in central Africa, but he has not been located. The latest lead last year was that he might be hiding out in a cave in a remote area of southern France, but that hasn't led to his capture, either.
