Recap #cclivechat March 25, 2011

A roller coaster that went on for 90 minutes if we had not been called back to our daily duties!

We started of with my request for help. There are cases were I could use help researching a cold case, post an introduction to the case, and then keep the case up to date. I am getting help from @oceanbluepress, @Katcop13 and @lilaclounge now in the cases of Ryan Eugene Guitron, Christine Prince,  “the lady in the barrel,” Tracy Allen & Patty Vaughan, Alice Barton, and Elizabeth Heath. I also mentioned that I could use in the cases of Richard Burchfield and Stephen Miera.

On Twitter, @coldcasesquad got in touch with @selphie_nic whose mother, Brenda Martinez, disappeared and was later found dead in 1980. “Brenda Martinez was only 23 when she disappeared from her Flint home just before Christmas that year. Police said then that she went to use a pay phone at Fenton and West Atherton roads and did not return. Her snow-covered, frozen body was found near Tobaggan Hill in Holloway Reservoir Regional Park on Jan. 5, 1989. Police did not disclose a cause of death but said it was a homicide. Martinez, who also used her maiden name of Harvey, disappeared on Dec. 22, 1988 after she said she was going to use a pay phone at Fenton and West Atherton roads in Flint. No one was charged in Martinez’s slaying.” We hope that Stephanie will tweet more about her mother’s case!

The discussions were about the above mentioned cases and especially what can still be submitted for testing if it has been buried underground for a long time? Also, what building materials can be tested years later for manufacturer to try and establish a time line. Stephanie brought the Google Earth maps to out attention with the help of Tom who provided all the links. This is a real “big brother is watching you” but the crime solving part is really neat!

Joe brought up the Gilgo Beach Murders. He pointed us to his post and to articles. He got into an interesting discussion with @oceanbluepress about the feet and in which direction the feet of the women were pointing. Clearly, the hint was religious practices either due to the killer’s religion or, because he read about it and tries to fool police by mimicking a religious ritual.

Good news is that next week @trickycase, a fingerprint expert, will join the conversation!

The thread is below! Thanks for participating: @lilaclounge, @bluedog89, @katcop13, @TRLeVeque, @oceanbluepress, @forensicpathdoc, and @coldcasesquad. Thanks for the RTs @dedekeene and @mariejoseGMH.

Enjoy, Vidster

oceanbluepress@LilacLounge is it possible to find fingerprints on old building materials like Elizabeth Heath case? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:32:59
ColdCaseSquadAnything with the Gilgo Beach murders? Maybe we should poke our noses around #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:33:35
katcop13I'm not familiar with the Heath or Barton case, but will do some reading on them... #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:33:40
bluedog89@LilacLounge And the use of Google Earth in criminal cases could become a violation of privacy issue. #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:33:58
oceanbluepress@ColdCaseSquad do you have a link to the Gilgo Beach? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:34:21
LilacLounge@oceanbluepress f'prints are not my area, but from my limited knowledge, I'd say it would depend on the state of the surface. #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:34:21
Vidocq_CC@ColdCaseSquad Does not ring a bell, link? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:34:40

TRLeVeque@bluedog89 You bet Stephanie...great resource, but also good for all to be aware of how exposed we are! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:40:05
Vidocq_CC@oceanbluepress @LilacLounge I'd want to know who else could have had a motive to kill Elizabeth Heath? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:40:12

forensicpathdocInteresting case! You'd be amazed at the things people find when they remodel! I see bones found like this all the time. #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:55:58

ColdCaseSquad@oceanbluepress and your theory? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:01:34
forensicpathdocthe body in the barrel is interesting. Any more recent update on it? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:02:34
oceanbluepress@ColdCaseSquad could it be that whoever placed them there face down with shoes off is of that religion *possibility #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:03:30
Vidocq_CC@forensicpathdoc No, hence my request for help w/researching+updating some cases. Will have full recap of chat on my blog later. #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:03:34
Vidocq_CC@forensicpathdoc I have tons of cases but need help updating some #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:04:00
ColdCaseSquad@oceanbluepress I never thought of it, but interesting insight- they could have lost their shoes when dragged to the dump site #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:04:36
oceanbluepress@Vidocq_CC @forensicpathdoc too many criminals out there! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:04:45
katcop13We had a body in a barrel on LI. New owner removed it; contained a pregnant corpse that prev. married homeowner had affair with #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:05:10
katcop13shortly after cops spoke with him, he killed himself. #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:06:00
oceanbluepress@ColdCaseSquad but all facing east with shoes and socks off got my attention, if dragged around would've lost more clothes #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:06:01
Vidocq_CC@katcop13 Interesting story, but at least she was ID-ed. This one I mentioned is still unknown as far as I know. #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:07:44
ColdCaseSquad@oceanbluepress great point-leave a comment on my post, maybe we can get some discussion about that #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:07:47
oceanbluepress@ColdCaseSquad sure, will do #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:08:26
katcop13Here's a NY Times article on body in barrel case from '69, discovered in '99 #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:09:06
ColdCaseSquad@oceanbluepress are you far from Montreal? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:09:11
oceanbluepress@ColdCaseSquad no - I'm on the west coast #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:09:55
katcop13She was a missing person for 30 years... #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:09:59
Vidocq_CC@trickycase will join us next week. His tweets will be representing himself and The Fingerprint Society, but not the NPIA! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:10:14
dedekeeneRT @ColdCaseSquad: The police are not saying the condition the bodies were left in or how they died #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:10:18
ColdCaseSquadHi @dedekeene glad you can make it to the #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:11:16
ColdCaseSquadWe are on Overtime! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:11:29
LilacLounge@Vidocq_CC @trickycase That's great news! Looking forward to insight he'll most certainly bring to proceedings 🙂 #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:12:17
Vidocq_CC@ColdCaseSquad We'll go for the penalty shooting in a few... #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:12:31
forensicpathdochey all, gotta run, the fam is home. I will read up on some of these cases! DM me if you need anything! Have a good weekend! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:12:34
katcop13It's a shame when victims don't have regular contact w friends or family, they don't know to report them missing. #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:12:44
Vidocq_CC@LilacLounge @trickycase mailed him the cases #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:12:55
LilacLounge@ColdCaseSquad Do we get a bonus? 😉 #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:13:00
Vidocq_CC@forensicpathdoc ok, next week again? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:13:11
Vidocq_CC@LilacLounge @ColdCaseSquad Yes, Joe will be goalie! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:14:19
oceanbluepress@katcop13 at least he shot himself *terrible #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:15:03
LilacLounge@katcop13 I guess in those circumstances it's not easy to establish how long they've been missing too. #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:15:30
ColdCaseSquad@Vidocq_CC I see this is growing legs and we should have a host of the week, What do you guys think? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:16:00
oceanbluepress@ColdCaseSquad @Vidocq_CC for sure! maybe you can tell us in advance what cases you want to talk about so we can do our homewrk #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:17:08
Vidocq_CCI cannot host next week but will download the chat later on! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:17:36
ColdCaseSquadI'll more than likely be around but I'll have some help, right guys??? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:18:37
LilacLounge@oceanbluepress @ColdCaseSquad @Vidocq_CC Good idea re homework. Have ~10 pages open right now... Be good to read in advance. #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:19:01
oceanbluepress@ColdCaseSquad you bet! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:19:03
LilacLounge@ColdCaseSquad Absolutely! 🙂 #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:19:41
Vidocq_CCThe cases I mentioned earlier all seemed to hold our attention so how about digging in those and report next week? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:19:52
katcop13No MP report, no match to be made. Too bad a central DB can't be set up w names of those who've lost contact; not necessarily MP #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:20:07
ColdCaseSquad@oceanbluepress has my back anyone else? Work schedule can be unpredictable at times! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:20:24
oceanbluepress@LilacLounge same here my computer is protesting 🙂 #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:20:27
oceanbluepress@Vidocq_CC will do #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:21:47
Vidocq_CCI think that @oceanbluepress and @lilaclounge will definitely be around to back-up Joe next week, right? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:21:48
Vidocq_CC@katcop13 It is a good idea but also tricky re storage and privacy protection #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:22:38
katcop13I should be here next Fri. 4/1 12-1 ET for another cold case chat #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:22:48
oceanbluepress@Vidocq_CC @lilaclounge Yes! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:22:52
LilacLounge@Vidocq_CC @oceanbluepress @ColdCaseSquad I surely will! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:22:52
ColdCaseSquad@Katcop13 also as well as @bluedog89 #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:23:58
katcop13Can u imagine how many unidentified corpses could be ID'd if people came forward? They don't know enough to report them #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:23:59
LilacLoungeRight now people, my time is up! It's been a rollercoaster this week. Loved it. Catch you all later. #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:24:14
ColdCaseSquad@Katcop13 or if DNA was taken at birth #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:24:40
Vidocq_CC@LilacLounge Thanks, Sue! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:24:47
MarieJoseGMHRT @ColdCaseSquad: We have Doctors, Lawyers, Cops, Authors chatting about criminal investigations, don't be shy #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:24:51

katcop13Love that idea @coldcasesquad. I have many "sci-fi" ideas
Fri, 25 Mar 2011 17:25:16
ColdCaseSquadHi @MarieJoseGMH Marie welcome @Vidocq_CC has us on overtime #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:25:51
LilacLoungeYes, a happy weekend to you all!!! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:25:56
oceanbluepress@katcop13 @coldcasesquad apparently they can put chips in your arm (for medical purposes) #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:26:37
Vidocq_CC@katcop13 @coldcasesquad Lawyer here sees privacy issues... #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:26:55
katcop13How 'bout an "MP-reporting amnesty" to ask those who lost contact w loved ones (esp w drug/pros histories), IDs could be made #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:27:23
ColdCaseSquadYes folks its time for me to go, before I end up in a barrel! Wife is lurking wants to go shopping, ugh! #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:27:27
MarieJoseGMHLol hve fun!! I m on phone cant get to chats :((!“@ColdCaseSquad: Hi @MarieJoseGMH Marie welcome @Vidocq_CC has us on overtime #cclivechat”Fri, 25 Mar 2011 17:27:55

ColdCaseSquad@MarieJoseGMH is a big supporter that's a #FF order! 🙂 #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:28:51
Vidocq_CC@katcop13 You don't have their permission so if they surface they can sue you #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:29:08
Vidocq_CC@oceanbluepress Email me later re cases, ok? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:29:32
katcop13Maybe it could be like adoptee & birth mother search...if it can be linked... #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:29:46
ColdCaseSquad@Vidocq_CC and @Katcop13 talk via email later? #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:30:07
oceanbluepress@Vidocq_CC will do - have a great weekend #cclivechatFri, 25 Mar 2011 17:30:12
