September 12th, 1996
Ricardo López, known as the Björk stalker, committed suicide in Apt. A after sending a letter bomb to the Icelandic singer. He developed an obsession with Björk in 1993 and became angry when she began a romantic relationship with fellow musician Goldie. To "punish" her, López built the aforementioned bomb using sulfuric acid in a hollowed-out book. The device was designed to explode and kill or seriously injure Björk as she opened it. Four days after the suicide, López's body was discovered by police. They also found a 22-hour video diary in which López discussed his plan. By watching it, police became aware of the package en route to Björk and luckily were able to intercept it before it could be delivered.
