The trial of Hawley Harvey Crippen for murdering his wife and mutilating her body was an international cause celebre.  The defendant was an American doctor married to a German-Russian-Polish music hall singer.  They lived in England, where the trial took place.  As Crippen attempted to escape to Canada with his mistress, he was caught as a result of a new invention called “the wireless.”  This enabled the ship’s captain to inform the authorities of the suspect’s presence on his ocean liner.
