The inquiry chaired by Dame Janet Smith has determined that Harold Shipman unlawfully killed 215 patients, and in a further 45 there were reasons for being concerned about the true cause of death.1 A statistical analysis gives a figure of 236.2 The first definite killing was in March 1975; the last was in June 1998. On average, there were around 10 killings a year, but the number was highly variable. Between 1990 and 1993 he killed only 3 people, but in 1996 he killed at least 30, and in 1997 at least 37, a rate of one killing every ten days. Yet even then, no concerns were raised officially until a courageous doctor from a neighbouring practice, together with her partners, began to think the unthinkable. In March 1998, by which time he had already killed well over 200 people, a police investigation was begun—but quickly abandoned.
Criminal Evidence I.W. week 12 | DNA Genetic Profiling | The Robert Paul Hytch Case | Deborah Simones 12/10/2012 | Disputed DNA evidence in another Queensland murder case resulted with Robert Paul Hytch, 29, being freed from prison after he was acquitted of killing missing 16 year old Bowen schoolgirl Rachael Antonio. A previous 1999 Townsville Supreme Court jury had found him guilty for the manslaughter of the missing Bowen teenager and he was jailed for nine years.

It was argued at his appeal that the DNA evidence was so powerful, from an emotional
The FBI, State Police and the local law enforcement had numerous leads. State police officer, Tom Schumpp, who supervised the Tylenol case, along with 100 other officers, pursued thousands of leads and several suspects. None compared to the evidence they had on a man named James Lewis, 40, an unemployed accountant. Lewis was the prime suspect in the beginning of the investigation and he remains the prime suspect to this day (Hale). James Lewis was arrested after he sent a letter to Johnson and Johnson demanding $1million to “stop the killings.” If the money was not paid, a repeat of the killing would occur.
Through the Micheal Lewis’s article, I found two main reasons which could determine the crime for him. First, He was only 15 years old, at this age, he was illegal to step into stock field and even his father helped him. It is said in Micheal Lewis’s article: “On Sept. 29, 1996, Jonathan's 12th birthday, a savings bond his parents gave him at birth came due. ” Second, what he did in stock market was called “pump and dump”. He used 20 fictitious names and posted blogs:” Jonathan Lebed had used "20 fictitious names" In his blogs, he claimed that he had heard that the price of the stock of the company would go up soon.

Many Americans have lost their lives that day and none of them will be
Included with each letter was one-third of a 408-symbol cryptogram which the killer claimed contained his identity. The killer demanded the newspapers print these on each paper’s front page or he would go around all weekend killing lone people in the night. The Chronicle published its third of the cryptogram which the killer claimed contained his identity and the threatened murders did not happen (AMC TV, 2010). On August 7, 1969, the San Francisco Examiner received another letter with the salutation “Dear Editor this is the Zodiac speaking”. This was the first time the killer had used this name for himself and it was in response to the Vallejo Police Chief’s request for more details to prove he killed Faraday, Jensen,

On July 4th, 1954, the body of Marilyn Sheppard, the wife of successful neurosurgeon Sam Sheppard, was found in her lakefront home near Cleveland, Ohio. Right away the main suspect was her husband Sam Sheppard. Months later, Sheppard was convicted of second- degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison. Sheppard however ended up serving a mere ten years of the sentence because he was released due to the absence of due process during his trial. However there was never conclusive evidence that would prove Sheppard to be guilty or innocent.
