. . didn’t act like the same boy” (293). The intent of this claim was to support that Hickock was involved in the murder due to his inability to distinguish right from wrong, but this claim was quickly dismissed after a psychological evaluation. During the trial, Hickock is described as “impulsive in action” and “alert” by Dr. Jones,the doctor who evaluated Hickock (294-5).
The next question posed would be: why is this considered an unsolved murder mystery case? It is obvious Hodel is the killer, but he was never convicted of the crime by the court. Hodel’s son believes his dad was “in cahoots with crooked cops running a high-end abortion business and was thus given protection” (Hewitt and Hannah). Thad Brown and William Parker, two Deputy Chiefs in the Los Angeles Police Department, are suspected to have covered up the Black Dahlia murder case. They are said to have been “directly responsible for knowingly permitting a psychopath serial killer to remain free until he was finally forced to leave the country in 1950” (Hodel 321).
The missionary murders because he believes that he is meant to get rid of a particular group of people.” Because serial killers murder victims in a sacramental way, it can demonstrate a low IQ – thus it appear... ... middle of paper ... ...al murder, therefore there is no reason to commit serial murder at all. But, because of not telling anyone of his compulsions of murder and necrophilia starting at the age of fourteen, this, may of ultimately led Dahmer down this road. Like Gacy, Dahmer had a previous record, which led to “an arrest in October 1981 for disorderly conduct.” However; unlike Gacy, Dahmer’s Father cared for his son enough to send him “to live with his grandmother in Wisconsin, but the [problems with alcohol persisted].” It seems as if serial killers may all have a prior record, even though it is irrational to lock up anyone with a prior on the merits that they may commit serial murder, this possible link should be studied.

Steinberg states that he does not remember the crime, but he does not deny it. He was found not guilty because he was temporally insane. Steinberg was set free because he was not held criminally responsible for the death of his wife. Jeffrey Dahmer is a notorious sex offender, serial killer, cannibalism, necrophilia, and dismemberment. His first murder was in 1978, Dahmer beat to death a hitchhiker, Steven Hicks while in the woods because ‘the guy wanted to leave and I didn’t want him too’.
The media got involved with this slow car chase and they got some of Simpsons friends to talk him into turning himself in. This car chase and everything involved was not brought up at all during the trial. Fleeing and threatening to kill himself seemed like a desperate act of guilt. Simpson showed up at his first court appearance on June 21 and he pleaded not guilty to the two murders. A jury was formed right away to see if there was enough evidence to press charges on OJ Simpson.
In 1987, Nobles was found guilty and placed on death row for the murder of Nalley and Farquer. Nobles was not rehabilitated. He knew right from wrong given that he was on parole for theft and employed at a crime prevention association, he showed no remorse when he plead insanity at his trial, and he used the media to convince the public that he changed.
Creon declares Polyneices not to be buried, punishes and kills Antigone for trying to give her brother a proper burial, lets no one mourn his death (SP4). Although Creon didn’t kill himself he has to live with his knowing that he brought this tragedy on himself. Both characters were challenged together in separate ways with both unfortunate outcomes. In both stories we know that Okonkwo and Creon rule by fear and they both believe that having power is the most important thing; it isn’t (SP1). That trait of fear of weakness may as well of been both Okonkwo and Creon’s tragic flaw which caused the two their devastating downfall.
In the Sophonow inquiry tunnel vision was a major factor why Sophonow got convicted. The police got a hint from unreliable eyewitnesses that Sophonow was the last person who talked to Barbara. The police submitted to tunnel vision at the early stage of the case, making them solely just focus on Sophonow as the killer. Since they were so focus on Sophonow they did not accept any other evidence or explanation that could have proved the he was innocent. The result of this put Sophonow behind bars and the real killer was never brought to justice.
At the trial, Jefferson’s attorney argues that Jefferson is too stupid to plan a murder and that killing him would be like killing a“hog”, but Jefferson still gets sentenced to death by electrocution. After his incarceration Mrs.Emma and Grant visit Jefferson for the first time. During their visit, Jefferson says to Miss Emma, “Nothing don't matter”(73). In this visit Jefferson thinks that nothing in his life matters because he is going to be killed anyway. For the rest of the visit Jefferson does not answer to Mrs.Emma’s questions, he refuses to eat her food, and only worries about when they are going to execute him.
So a juror realized that some of the information that a witness brought up had to be false. So they analyzed the information and came to the conclusion that the boy could not have stabbed his father the way he did because one of the juror's had seen many knife fight's in his backyard and you can not stab someone downward with a switchblade. Also another witness said that the knife that the kid had could be bought anywhere. The juror's discriminated the boy because he lived in the slums , he has a criminal record and he was always fighting with his dad so they just assumed he was the one that killed his dad.
