Due to systematic and fundamental errors of the police, Robert Pickton managed to murder of over 26 female sex trade workers in seven years. The VPD was not involved enough in the disappearances of the women and many of the mistakes that happened within the investigation and departm... ... middle of paper ... ...taffing and expertise. Each of those problems could have been easily fixed, yet they were not. Not only was the lack of staffing an issue, but the VPD’s desire to not acknowledge that there was a serial killer was a vial mistake. Failure to arrest and charge Picton for the attempted murder of Ringwald, as well as the failure to obtain a search warrant when prominent evidence was discovered delayed the investigation and allowed for more women to die.
Later the police discovered that car jack was a lie because on that same day and time she reported the carjacker stole her car on the same street when undercover police who was working on a drug case on that same street he reported that he since no African American stealing a car and if the carjacking was really t... ... middle of paper ... ...the fact the Susan smith was very depressed at a young age and had multiple attempt of suicide even though she was sexual abuse by her step farther and that she had something wrong with her mind she still knew that killing her own children was wrong and against human nature because she had the intent hurt her two boys but not herself. She was not worried what will people think about her or what kind punishment will happen and was also not thinking about what she will put Dave through. None of that went through her mind only thing she was thinking about was her life that she will be spending with her new lover. She acted out and was only looking at the positive outcome to her crime I feel like the choice theory best describe this criminal act because it explains exactly what Susan smith did. It is still not understandable that a person can commit such a crime.
By the age of 16 Kathleen was an alcoholic and a prostitute. She married William Manson before Charles was born, so he never got to know his biological father. Kathleen and William’s marriage didn’t last long, they soon got a divorce. Charles mother didn’t want anything to do with him, so at the age of 13 he had to learn how to take care of his self living on the streets this resulted in stealing, breaking and entering, and petty theft. In result of being abandoned by his mother, all he knew was crime.
Hannah Wheeler then reported the incident to Justice Robert Walker, who then arrested Ephraim Wheeler on that day. What was expected of a wife in 1805 Massachusetts, when confronted with such a vicious criminal act? Having such a crime inflicted upon yourself, would be hard enough to live through, but to have such an evil act forced upon your helpless thirteen year old daughter- by a husband and father is unfathomable. Cases of incestial rape by father's upon their daughters, where actually rarely reported (Brown, 131). Most mother's and daughters kept incidents like these secret from the public or rarely even confronted their husbands and fathers for fear of experiencing further harm.
The first problem with his confession is, “Bedwell couldn’t read or write, so it would be nearly impossible for him to understand what he was confessing to” (Sigona). The second problem with his confession is “After a time, everyone realized Bedwell’s story didn’t add up. There were inconsistencies, including the fact that Bedwell said he was with the girls for a month before they died” (Sigona). Finally, the main problem with his confession is that the girls were dead within four hours of leaving home (Sigona). The other suspect in the case of the murder of Barbara and Patricia Grimes is Max Fleig.
Stevenson took McMillian’s case after reading his case file and found his case was full of vary questionable facts, circumstances and evidence against his client. The cases involved the murder of a local girl in Monroe County where McMillian resided. Stevenson (2014) “In the late morning of November, 1, 1986, Ronda Morrison… was found dead on the floor of Monroe Cleaners…” (p, 30). Due to testimony by people who never knew or met McMillian, McMillian was charged and sentenced to the death penalty for Morrison’s
On July 15th, 2008, Caylee Anthony was reported missing by her grandmother Cindy Anthony. Cindy Anthony in the report stated that she hadn’t seen her grand-daughter Caylee for a month and that she and her husband were suspicious because their daughter Casey’s car reeked of decay, as if a dead body had been stored inside the vehicle for days. Caylee and her mother resided with Casey Anthony’s parents. However, Cindy Anthony claimed that Casey had given different explanations about Caylee's whereabouts before telling Cindy that she hadn’t seen her own daughter for several weeks. When questioned by authorities, Casey told the detectives several lies: stating the child had been kidnapped by her nanny on June 9, and that Casey had been trying to contact the nanny to find her daughter.
The pair spent the night in a motel and, the next day, Manley dropped her off at the Biltmore Hotel where Short said she was meeting her sister. After the murder, the police tried questioning Short's father, that left the family when she was young, as well as Short's “boyfriends” but learned nothing new. Due to the fame and reputation of the case, many people were claiming to be the killer, and as much time was spent proving these people... ... middle of paper ... ...mptuous letters the killer sent to the police and media. Since I can see no clear reason why someone would want Elizabeth Short dead, I think the killer must have been some mentally unstable person who killed her for no real reason at all. The killer may have attended the same clubs that Short did and may have even spoken with her.
Although Lizzie attempted to purchase a poison, Prussic acid she was not going to use this one her parents, it was for a sealskin cape. Another example of how Lizzie got blamed for these murderers is because of Bridget Sullivan. In article #3 in paragraph 7 it says,”When Bridget Sullivan came back inside after having finished washing out inside windows,around 10:30 A.M., she reported hearing a muffled laugh coming from upstairs.” This can emphasize that people could have lied by saying they weren't there at the time of these murderers but nobody really knows the truth about this case and many people probably blamed Lizzie even though she clearly did not commit this murder. Another way people suspect Lizzie is because she burned a dress that clearly had paint on it and not the blood of her parents. This supports the claim because Lizzie was suspected for many things but she did not kill her parents.
The first was when I was 16, my mother had put me out of her home not for any wrong doing on my part, although at the time I was quite resentful that she kicked me out, but it was more so to protect me from her boyfriend a convicted felon and murderer with a rap sheet as long as your arm. His name was Jimmy Pouncey (my brother Orlando 's father) he is dead now, he died from complications of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (aids) contracted by using dirty needles to shoot heroin. Well, one day when I stop by my mother 's home to check on her and some of my younger siblings there was a man laying on the floor in front of the patio doors. He
