On a rainy morning in December 1968, a police motorcyclist screeched to a halt in front of a cash-laden Tokyo bank vehicle and ordered four men to get out, warning it was about to explode. The case left a mystery that remains unsolved 44 years later, having eluded some of Japan's top investigative minds. AFP PHOTO / SHIGEMI SATO (Photo credit should read SHIGEMI SATO/AFP/Getty Images)
