This Day in the History of Evil Ends

On this day in 1940, exiled Russian Communist Leon Trotsky was assassinated in Mexico City, with a mountain climber's ice pick to the top of the head. Stalin had exiled this former member of the Inner Circle in 1929, but then had him killed (as if Trotsky was planning to return to the Soviet Union and lead a counter-revolution).
