Home page: here you can find a quick overview of some trials that I am watching, my Twitter #crimechat dates, and an overview of my latest posts. Let’s give as many cold cases as possible a web presence to make sure that the victims are not forgotten.
If you use Twitter, join me for a monthly crime chat (hashtag #crimechat, previously #cclivechat). The chats cover a variety of topics ranging from book discussions to forensic arson detection. The schedule is below.
November: Private Investigator Virginia Braden returns for another cold case analysis. Details TBA after the summer.
June 14: I will be live tweeting from #ReInvent Law London 2013 before and after my talk! Stay tuned for more details.
John Heath’s trial has been delayed until July 16, 2013 according to the docket of the Danbury GA 3 and JD court. Heath will stand trial for the murder of Elizabeth Gough Heath. He has pleaded not guilty and was not released on bond.
Alas, Zeigler’s last DNA appeal was denied, see post here. He still has an appeal pending based on newly discovered evidence.
As for the Trey Noah case, I have been able to find the indictment for Shelby Moore but not for Brandon Harber. Should you have a link to that document or to a newspaper article discussing his indictment, please contact me.
Christian Gerhartsreiter was found guilty in the cold case of John Sohus. He will face sentencing on June 28, 2013.
My second mini-series on the historical mystery of the Princes in the Tower (Edward V and Richard of York) has been posted and can be found here. I think that King Richard III had more to gain by keeping them away from harm and alive than to see them dead. Two #crimechats were dedicated to this cold case. The recaps and verbatim threads are here and here. My first mini-series on an historical mystery involved the Man in the Iron Mask. I am currently doing an Internet search for another historical mystery. I like to dig into unsolved puzzles! Of course, in due time my thoughts will be posted here.
