The forensic pathologist, Benerd Spilsbury, who claimed the tissue was a scar, helped prosecutors gain over 250 convictions in murder trials. He was expected to give the goods to the Jury, and indeed he did. No one second-guessed it, especially since this was the first act of forensic science. 8) Do you think Crippen killed his wife? Why or why not?
O.J Simpson: A Cold Blooded Killer On June 12th, 1994, at around 10:15 p.m., Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were brutally murdered. There is no doubt that their killer was none other than Nicole Brown Simpson's ex-husband, former football great and media personality O. J. Simpson. There is an unbelievable amount of evidence pointing to O.J., from blood in his car, to his footprints at Nicole’s condominium on Bundy Drive. If anyone other than Simpson committed this crime, it would probably be the greatest framing in the history of civilized courts. The only thing that remains a mystery is how in the world Orenthal James Simpson is still a free man.
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.
In August 1993, Vikernes stabbed Euronymous to death outside his apartment in Oslo. He was arrested a few days later and, in May 1994, was sentenced to 21 years in prison for both the murder and the church arsons. The opening track on Filosofem, "Burzum", was the first song Vikernes wrote as Burzum. It had been
The commonwealth started off the trial with their first witness, Dr. Jane Pierce, the coroner who inspected Trudi Doyle’s corpse. The bullet holes were obvious, but within the second wound was a bracelet fragment from the bracelet on the left wrist. This discovery suggests that the victim was shielding herself from the second shot. It was also revealed that there were no powder burns on the body, meaning that Trudi had no contact with the gun with the shots were fired. The second witness was an employee at the Truck Stop Café where the murder took place.
I am confident in the decision I have declared because the offenders should not have been convicted of this crime simply because there were so many loop holes in which they could have been entrapped especially, during the interview interrogation. After spending fourteen years with one of the offenders losing his life there was no facts really that led towards a factual conviction of them committing this crime. Fourteen years later one of the offenders was release and one dead while being incarcerated. The case was reopened and a new DNA test was conducted including that the strain of hair found on one of the original suspects was found to not be from the victim as originally
Toothbrushes Manual vs. Electric Davon Bonelli Dr. Minton Manual and electric toothbrushes are two ways to brush your teeth. Debates and studies have compared both of the toothbrushes to find out which is more affective. Manual toothbrushes were the first designed and are still reliable today. The first manual toothbrush’s model was one size fits all. The bristles on the first brushes were hard and caused gum recession as well as gum abrasions.
He was wrongfully convicted when he was 16 years old and served 20 years in prison before proving his innocence. That mistake took two decades from him, but it took Carlos DeLuna's life. Proof of Carlos' innocence has only come out now, 29 years after the crime and two decades after he was executed, because of the painstaking work of professors and students at The Columbia Human Rights Law Review. Doubts always existed in Carlos' case, but it took 29 years and what some are calling the most comprehensive criminal investigation in U.S. Carlos DeLuna's case is proof that these kinds of cases are not isolated; they are the inevitable result of an imperfect system. As long as we have a death penalty, we risk executing innocent people like Carlos
At the trial, two forensic odontologists testified that Stinson was a match for the bite marks even though the bite marks showed a tooth where he was missing one in his mouth. With the advent of more sophisticated forensic scientific techniques it has been determined that Stinson did not produce the bite marks on the woman’s body, and Stinson’s DNA does not match any DNA found at the crime scene. Bite mark identification does not seem to be the most reliable of forensic techniques available for investigators. “Since 2000, at least eight people in five states who were convicted largely on bite-mark identification have been exonerated, according to the innocence project” (Truth In Justice,
