On Thursday last week, two murders have taken place. Myrtle Wilson, wife to a small garage owner, was hit and killed instantly by a speeding car two evenings ago. She had run out into the middle of the street for unknown reasons when the ‘death car’ hit her. The car was allegedly a yellow or green color and was guessed to be traveling around 40 miles per hour when it hit Myrtle. This car was coming from New York; it swerved a little but did not stop when passing
The Zodiac Killer The late 1960’s and early 1970’s were a time of great change in America. The Vietnam War, the civil rights movement and the sexual revolution were just some of the issues on the evening news in American households. For citizens of the San Francisco Bay
Title King County, Washington was a seemingly quiet and safe place to live, atleast until 1982. Over a period of time, dozens of young women began disappearing. This terrified the community. Bodies began popping up in groups, while others still have yet to be found. It was very typical for these missing women to be involved in prostitution, a dangerous lifestyle already. Over the next twenty years, hundreds of pieces of evidence would pop up, while more and more women were killed or simply disappeared. An unidentified serial killer, who earned the name “Green River Killer” was getting away with numerous crimes for over twenty years. Detectives and forensic scientists reviewed the evidence over and over again, with no leads. The technology
Now I am going to give you some background on this subject. The police officers had a lot of suspects and a lot of evidence and the evidence pointed to a lot of people, but then there was evidence that pointed to someone else. The crime scene was not sealed off like it should have been to preserve the evidence. The room in the basement that John found JonBenet in was checked twice by police
Lucille Johnson Cold Murder Case Jennifer Potts Friction Ridge Analysis/CJC-245-EK1 November 8, 2017 Surry Community College Instructor: Denise Sizemore The case that I will be discussing is the cold murder case of Lucille Johnson from Salt Lake City, Utah. Unfortunately, at the time of the murder the investigators didn’t take certain evidence serious in the case. The investigators thought that it was just evidence that had no meaning. None the less, it ended up convicting the murderer, John Sansing.
Throughout this case, many pieces of evidence came up “missing” and many other people who should have been suspects went without being questioned at all. For example, a problem arose at a local Bojangles, the same night of the murders. The manager working at the time called the police, reporting that a black man had stumbled into the restaurant. He was bleeding and mumbling the manger said, and instead of a report being filed, the working officer found it would be much more convenient for her if she just
What was believed to be a kidnapping of 6-year-old, JonBenet Ramsey, ended up to be the discovery of her dead body by her father in the basement, after multiple hours of searching in Ramsey's house (Saferstein, 2015.) A major issue with the case was that the house was not sealed off, and multiple people, including their pastor, were able to go to and from with no complications (Saferstein, 2015.) In defense of the police team, in the beginning, they had believed it to be a kidnapping with a note and all, and in the end, it turned out to be a murder. Of course the media's eyes immediately turned to the parents but one of the theories is, "The current theory stands that an intruder, with possible paedophilic motives, was responsible for her death, and while this has become a widely accepted working theory, there are several pieces of evidence that simply don’t add up" (Team, 2016.) The ransom note was 2 and a half pages long, her body was found in the basement of the families home, the cause of death showed strangulation and a blow to the head an hour or so before, and also pineapple that she had eaten recently with a bowl that led to her brother's fingerprints were all clues that didn't add up (Team, 2016.)
Upon arriving on scene, I observed a body laying on the ground in the driveway of the residence, near the road. The body was laying behind a red dodge truck.
Later Hossack was dead Sunday morning. Burglary was the first thought for a motive, but that theory was quickly abandoned. Nothing had been taken from the house. Also, once police had a chance to sniff around and question friends and neighbors, they zeroed in on a strong candidate for the killer.
This The Boulder Police Department’s investigation was not conclusive and left more questions than answers. Also, upon advice from their attorney, the Ramsey’s refused to be interviewed initially. This further let the barriers that hindered a good outcome. All of these unanswered questions led to a media frenzy and speculation that fueled public speculation.
All the bodies were found face down with their hands tied behind their backs. The forensic studies of each victim, determined that they all had suffered stab wounds to their torsos. Evidence proved that the killer had spent a reasonable amount of time with each victim before and after the murders.
The murder of Cartherine Genovese was an event that headlined news stories across the country, however it wasn't the murder itself that shocked people. According to Gansberg's essay "37 Who Saw Murder Didn't Call the Police" the shock was that thirty seven people witnessed the murder but
Examination of Evidence The crime took place in the house of John Wayne Gacy. He disposed of the 33 young men bodies in the crawlspaces and basement of his home. This usually doesn’t happen, because many people wouldn’t think
Semen samples collected were reanalyzed. Police now had a DNA profile of the killer but they did not have a profile of a known individual to compare it to. They ran the DNA through the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) but it returned no hits, so the only thing they can conclude was that the killer was not a convicted offender.
The murder of a little girl has haunted Boulder, Colorado. Many people have heard of the famous case of the murder of JonBenet Ramsey. However nobody knows what truly happened the night of her murder. There have been an abundance of conspiracies to what really happened the night of december 25th. 1996.
