When you see the shows such as Homicide Hunter or Killer Instincts many times my mom and I try to figure out who is the murder. Most of the time my prediction is right because of the details my mom misses, and putting together all the clues. From then on I realised I had a gift, even if it was I was just watching television show. That is what sparked my interest the criminal justice area. I have contemplated the career choices that would best fit my interest leaving me with Homicide Detective and Criminologist. While both careers deal with criminal justice they differ greatly in the type of work environment, pay, skills/education.
The Real Cool Killers is about finding out the killer of a white guy who was in a bar in Harlem, New York; an all-black neighborhood. Two detectives were assigned to this case because of how much respect they had in Harlem. The detective’s names were Grave Digger and Coffin Ed and they were known for being violent with suspects. The two of the detectives were aggressive people but Grave Digger was more level headed than Coffin Ed ever since he had gotten acid thrown on his face a while back. Coffin Ed might even be trigger happy when things are thrown his way literally. Grave Digger and Coffin Ed were put onto this case to find out information and find it fast. Just a few minutes after the incident happened Grave Digger and Coffin Ed were on the scene, they thought they had some potential suspects. There were 6 young black males on the scene that were potential suspects, Grave Digger and Coffin Ed were going to find information on how this white man died in the middle of Harlem. They arrest only one of the young males because he had a handgun on him but said he shot blanks. Although that was stated Digger and Ed still had to arrest him because he was there only lead and weren't sure if that young male was telling the truth or not. As far as the other 5 young males there were told to sit on the ground and hands where they could be seen by the two
In a 22 month span, starting in July 1979, 30 African American children and young men were murdered or disappeared in Atlanta, Georgia (Nickell 1 of 2). Due to the various motives that each murder presented, it was believed that multiple individuals were responsible for these crimes. However only 1 person was ultimately charged with these homicides. The person that was found responsible for 2 of the many murders is Wayne Williams. He was suspected and subsequently arrested after police heard a splash in the water under a bridge on May 22, 1981, and Williams was the only one on the bridge during the time frame of the body drop (Plummer 1 of 3). This case was splashed all over headlines both nationally and internationally (Nickell 1 of 2). Due
You said you deal with deductive reasoning at your police department? I happen to agree with you, and there are two sides to every story, so I agree. I bet you hear and see many things while working at a police department. I enjoyed reading your discussion post this week. Have a good day!
In this article, “Who Killed the Jeff Davis 8”, Ethan Brown, the author, attempted to solve the murder case and prove the police authorities to being wrong and being responsible for the murders of the town. The main problem of this article is determining who is responsible for the murders of those eight women everyone’s contradicting stories. In an attempt to figure out what really happened Brown includes factual evidence from interviews and shocking statistics to inform the reader of what’s going on in the article. By providing such information, Brown indulges the audience into the full experience of solving the murder case.
A key factor in the case of Walter McMillian was that he was an African American man who at one point was respected by his community. However, an extramarital affair with a white woman is what crossed the line. Affairs were not out of the norm in the Monroeville community, but given the fact that McMillian was black dramatically changed what was perceived as socially acceptable behavior. The significant questioning of McMillian’s character came into play when a young woman, Ronda Morrison was murdered. The profound change in the community’s view toward McMillian was an incentive to point to him as the mastermind behind the murder. The police were unable to produce any viable suspects which led to pressure from the community to find and convict a killer – even if the person accused was innocent. The interrogation tactics used during the questioning of suspects and witnesses produced false allegations. Tactics such as intimidation and bargaining. These practices encompassed covert operations that allowed the law enforcement – police, district attorneys, judges – to navigate the case. Several people were instrumental in concocting the false story placing McMillian at the center of the crime. After his initial lie, Ralph Myers’s was pushed by police to produce additional information which although false, was used by police to arrest McMillian. As the story gained traction in the town,
It all started on Tuesday of March 11, 2003 in a home located in downtown Brownsville. What seemed like a usual Tuesday evening turned into a dark, cold, and gruesome night for the city of Brownsville. “The Rubio Murder House”, apartment and home to a couple who took the lives of 3-year old little girl, 1-year-old baby boy, and 2-month-old infant girl. The children were horrifically and viciously stabbed and decapitated by their mother and father and later put into garbage bags to dispose of the bodies. John Allen Rubio, along with his wife, Angela Camacho, brutally murdered their children because they believe and had illusions that the children were possessed by demons. Despite the Rubio family members having a background of mentally, and
Deputy Strange is responding and investigating calls for service on his own, without the assistance of his FTO.
Her body was actually found near a bar in the area. Detective Rodie Sanchez actually kept a picture of her on his desk as a reminder and really wanted to solve this crime. There is actually a book about this cold case as well called Blood Bath by Susan Mustafa that includes a great synopsis of the case. This book is about Louisiana serial killer Derrick Todd Lee, who has been linked to the murder of five women in Baton Rouge. There is talk that he might have killed several more women as well and could be part of this case as well. There is no hard evidence linking him to the killing of Boisfontaine, but there is a lot of speculation that he could be involved. He was working in the area where her killing happened and hopefully he is looked into during Killing

I do not think everyone with schizophrenia should have an automatic pass to use the not-guilty-by-reason-of-insanity plea. If you can go as far as Jeffery Dahmer did in regards to covering up heinous crimes you're not truly insane. I'm pretty familiar with the Jeffery Dahmer case and his crimes were motivated by the desire to be dominant over his victims. Dahmer would use the same techniques to lure and capture his victims. Which proved that he was well aware of what he was doing. Not to mention, Dahmer never claimed that any crime he committed was done so because of a persuasive external entity (e.g. voices telling him to do things). As for someone with schizophrenia having sufficient command over their mental capacities, that is a hard topic
Wednesday was my first day back in the investigation unit. I spent half of the day with detective Turner, we went to eat lunch at fabulous pizza. It was my first time eating there but I do not really like pizza so I just ordered some teriyaki wings. After eating we went to do a few canvases but there was no one home so we headed back to the police department and I switched and went with detective Childs. We went to a suspect house where her job belongings were stolen. What was suspicious to me is that she quite her job after the incident, also she would start crying on and off. She claims she was OCD but as she walked out of her door I could see inside her house and her house was a mess. The whole conversation with her was suspicious. I remember
Detective Jon Kelly Nester considered himself a man with fine behavior and manners. In school, he was told he was clever, because of thoughtful essays and great skills in detecting little changes or solving puzzles. He was always the first one done with that word puzzle the teacher would hand out to have their class occupied while they got caught up in work.
Hello James, I also believe the psychopaths that initiate these crimes are not remorseful and could care less what others thought about him. This is a disease that they have, and I do agree with you that medication is needed, but they still have to be continuously monitored. We cannot expect moral or ethical behavior from them. Whether they are hospitalized or monitored 24/7 depends on their sentence. Jeffrey Dahmer received life in prison, and he could not have been taking medication and monitored all hours of the day because he was killed in
