The way we were

The Dec. 11, 1974; "mob rubout" of Miami Beach attorney Harvey St. Jean, who was murdered in broad daylight.

The Miami News speculated on the identity of the killer in the Dec. 13, 1974 issue of the paper.

And Miami Herald crime reporter Edna Buchanan, in writing about St. Jean's murder, penned one of the more famous lines in true crime writing, "The corpse had a familiar face," which became the title of her classic memoir.

St. Jean's murder was never solved.
