More information about Final Jeopardy:
Francisca Rojas’ two children were murdered in 1892 in Necochea, Argentina; Rojas attempted to pin the crime on a man named Velasquez. Velasquez maintained his innocence even after torturous interrogation techniques were used; regional police, intrigued by new theories about fingerprinting (namely, no two people have exactly the same fingerprints, and they never change), decided to see if those new methods could crack the case. A bloody thumbprint on the bedroom door was found to match Rojas’ thumbprint; when presented with this new evidence, she confessed and was sentenced to life in prison.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, over $440 has been raised.)
