4. Murder most foul, island style -- Fatu Hiva, French Polynesia
When a German tourist was found dead on the French Polynesian island of Fatu Hiva, the foreign press rushed to report it as a case of cannibalism. Not so fast, cannibal haters. Turns out, he was killed by his local guide while on a goat hunting expedition, for reasons that remain unclear. The guide went back to lure the guy's girlfriend into the jungle and attack her as well, before evading the authorities for weeks thanks to help from other islanders.
