I know the name , least what’s widely believed to be,  of the first "murderer" that was outrun by radio  Dr Crippen. People like to tie the new  with the  very very old  but usually it’s in the other direction E.g  look at how these infernal machines are aiding those with malice in their mainframe to carry out. 
Would driving a  car get the same attention?  How about using a camera? Is it more newsworthy if it’s silver halide or CCD that captures the  image?   Radio type   or something else?    Oo let’s scare people with  VOIP  not only  does it not let 911 know where you are (rtfm)  it’s now enabling decades old dispute in a new manner that’s just so so so hard to have envisioned prior to its adoption.
