Sarah Alexander, the victim was only twenty years old, and five months pregnant, when she was lured to a (then) remote farm section of Brooklyn, New York, and stabbed to death. There is much evidence of tracks in the snow and an analysis of dirt. Rubenstein was convicted, but died while his appeal was pending.
