On Saturday, December 1, 1900, a man named John Hossack was killed in his sleep with a hatchet by his wife, Margaret Hossack. The story told by Margaret was that she had heard what sounded like two boards banging together and by that time the attacker had fled and she didn’t catch a glimpse of him. The next thing she saw was her extremely wounded husband, John, who had a five-inch cut into his head and a fractured skull. A doctor, who came and examined John, and said there was no hope and John died the next morning. As an investigation started, a burglary was thought of as the first motive but the idea flawed because nothing was stolen so the idea was quickly abandoned. In the 4 days between the murder and the funeral, the police talked to
This brings us to the second issue to be outlined, that is Mr Hughes crimes. Aside from a charge of break and enter as a child, another charge regarding sexual relations with a juvenile when he himself was a juvenile, and at the age of twenty-two, convictions for false pretences, theft and drug use, Mr Hughes has managed to remain crime free regardless of his drug addictions. Also, until the most recent crimes, Mr Hughes has never served a prison term. Thus in view of these facts, the court regards this as an insignificant criminal record considering Mr Hughes current age.
I have not attempted to identify a named suspect as a consequence of my conclusions. In the course of an objective appraisal it is quite wrong to start with a suspect and then attempt to make the facts fit as so many later day investigators have done. Such an approach unavoidably leads to a skewed interpretation. I have, however, given a broad idea as to the type of man that Jack the Ripper may have been, and although such a summary may be of use to others, it lies firmly in the realm of
A compelling, powerful re-creation of the hostile environment that was Florida in the early twentieth century, Peter Matthiessen, the naturalist and explorer, brings much of these elements to his novel Killing Mister Watson. He writes about the natural world and the individuals who must struggle to survive the elements. The main focal point of the novel is Edgar J. Watson, a real historical figure who killed the female outlaw Belle Starr. Killing Mister Watson is told by the people who knew Watson, and the characters speak in their natural dialect. Matthiessen knows how to weave in factual material and has created a wonderful sense of place. The novel is dynamic in the sense that it is more than mere imagination; it is an American

On January 25th 1990, Paul Onions a British backpacker, had decided to hitchhike to get work as a fruit picker when he was approached by a man who introduced himself as ‘Bill’. Bill asked Paul many questions about himself and he answered as the man seemed friendly. Yet soon Bill’s behaviour changed as he continued with racism remarks and continually looked at his mirror. They soon stopped near the Belanglo State Forest as Bill needed to grab something from his car when he produced a gun and rope. Paul Onions afraid for his life leapt out of the car and onto the road where he was picked up by a local woman Joanne Berry who drove him to the local police station. After the International media coverage in 1993, Paul Onions was reminded of his similar event he experienced while in Australia so he contacted the Australian High Commission in London who put him in touch with Task Force Air on 13th November 1993. He told all the details of what happened but he wasn’t contacted again for months. His statement had been buried under the thousands that Task Force Air had received. Months later in April of 1994 Paul Onions received a call from Detective Stuart Wilkins telling him he was an important witness in the case and they needed

As I viewed the case of Gary L. Sampson, 41, he can best be described as a man dependent on liquor and cocaine, a miscreant father, and a bank burglar with a long history of brutality. On August 1, 2001, he handed himself over to the Vermont State Police in
FACTS: In a hearing concerning a motion to suppress admission of evidence, Cleveland Detective Martin McFadden described an incident where he was patrolling downtown Cleveland on the afternoon of October 31, 1963. During patrol, McFadden noted two men at the corner of Huron and Euclid, who for some indefinable reason, attracted his attention. Although McFadden was unable to express precisely what it was that drew his attention concerning the men, the habits and intuition of over 30 years of observation and detective work were sufficient to engage his interest and have him settle in to observe the men more keenly (Justia, 2015).

DNA was not available at the time. He probably would have never been caught if he didn’t start writing the police again. On one occasion, he wrote a local TV station asking “How many do I have to kill before I get my name in the paper or get some national attention?” (Chu, Seiger, & Thigpen, 2005). He seemed to live a very normal life with a loving wife, children, and attended church. His church family could not believe he was capable of committing these crimes. This very normal lifestyle also contributed to the delay in capture. All of these elements contributed to the delay in his
