I only missed Jon Benet Ramsey... was pretty sure it wasn't Mississippi but could've been any of the other 3. Even for a US-centric quiz that seems obscure. I know it was all over the news in 1996. (and the tabloids for years afterward)

That one was certainly at the low end in terms of historical significance compared to the other things on the quiz. Then again, a good quiz--especially a good multiple choice quiz--should throw at least one curveball.

Never heard of her but guessed correctly because I was prettly sure Colorado has a high-ish murder rate and Colorado is one of the more likely states for a celebrity to visit

Saw "hippies gather" and immediately answered New York (i.e. Woodstock); failed to pay attention to the year or the rest of the clue. Facepalm!
