    mama2one,

    Your right not much on this young lady :-(

    I know you said you visited the Sheriffs website and didn't see anything maybe you can e-mail them and ask about the case?

    Also the Rockford Police Dept.

    Rockford Police Dept.

    I will still keep checking too, and maybe someone else will chime in here.

    Is anyone interested in taking over a crime blog?

    Hi,
    I haven't logged in in quite some time, but I'm looking for someone to take over a crime blog immediately. It has a large Facebook fan following, but the blog owner cannot devote anymore time to it.

    Have you tried Google news archives? Most are Pay Per View, but I found some things from that time period.

    Ah ha, seems that my priveliges are slowly being unlocked, can a more experienced websleuther advise me which forum to start my thread, it involves a 1986 case of a guy pushing someone down some stairs in canada, after finding out that he'd killed the guy
    ,he fled they country, and to this day the family of this guy will have thought he'd fallen by accident, but i have had a confession, And seeing as i am in the uk i have no access to decent historical newspapers etc, i would like to draw attention to this for more local (canadian) people who perhaps could find out more
    thanks

    Hi sbeau66,

    Welcome to Websleuths! Good to have you with us. It is true that you have to have a certain amount of posts before you can do certain things here. It doesn't take that long. Just jump into the case you are interested in or cases and start posting.

    Doug Mueller, missing Phoenix, Ariz., area 1977

    I sincerely apologize if I am posting this in the wrong location. I have been an avid fan of Websleuths but just joined yesterday. Looking at different forums I kept seeing the name Doug Alan Mueller who went missing in 1977. There's not much info. on Charley Project but it does say there was ransom involved.

    I found a September 4th 2011 article that says his remains were finally identified http://www.faribaultcountyregister.c....html?nav=5001.

    I have searched the missing forums from the 1970s and the located forums with no luck. The Charley Project doesn't have this updated information, and recently he has been mentioned as a possible amnesia victim on Websleuths.

    As a newbie, I wanted to make sure you wonderful people are aware that sadly his remains were finally identified 34 years later. Thanks!

    Need help with autospy report

    In March of 1977, my father went missing, after he visted my older sister at her home. Eight days later, he was found deceased, in a heavily wooded area. I was always told he had a mental breakdown, took off into the woods, fell and broke his neck. I never believed this story. It made no sense at all. I was 15 years old at the time and assumed police would solve the case. Later, I found out they never did any type of investigation. I was always hesitant to contact police, because they never investigated the matter in the first place. I finally decided to get his autopsy report. This is what disturbs me.

    Diagnoses:
    Fracture of neck, 4th, 5th and 6th cervical vertebral area; with epidural hematoma.

    Opinion:
    This 51 year old white male, died of a broken neck. The injury could have been sustained in a fall or could have been inflicted by an assailant. The manner of death is therefore undetermined.

    His death was considered an accident and never investigated as anything else. I talked to a cold case detective. He ask me to fax him autopsy report. He called me today and said they only have police reports going back to 1980, and that he has nothing to work with.

    I need help and advice as how to proceed next. I need an expert to take a look at autopsy. Where would I find such a person.

    You've stumped me. I'll ask around and see if I can find out for you.

    I really thought police would investigate, since medical examiner concluded it could possibly be a homicide. Not so. Now, I am reliving everything that happened 35 years ago, all over again. My younger brother and younger sister are upset and in tears. It was a very traumatic event for us. My mother had passed away from cancer, two years before my dad died. I am not sure if I did the right thing. Still no answers and no closure. I feel absolutely helpless.

    Cold case homicide detective, suggested I talk to my older sister, who saw my dad last. Don't really think that will help, but will try. I am meeting with her this weekend.

    I called the medical examiner's office about autopsy findings. They told me to write a letter, requesting a review of the autopsy. I am doing that.

    I contacted a private investigator. He is retired police captain, from another county. He suggested I wait and see if medical examiner finds anything, that will change manner of death. Then police will get involved. If not, he can interview people regarding case and have a forensic expert take a look a autopsy. Of course, it will cost me. I am willing do take this route, if necessary.

    I am having a difficult time understanding why the police never investigated this case, as a possible homicide. My dad was the father of five children, and grandfather of two. He was retired from the military. A world war2 and korean war vet. He was working as a machinist at a plastic manufacturing plant.

    I will keep trying, until I run out of options. My father deserves that, at the very least.

    Just interviewed another private investigator. He looked at autopsy, and pointed out several things, that pointed towards a homicide. He had a hard time believing that it was an accident, based on the injuries. He made a few calls to professionals in the medical field, and inquired about this type of injury.
    This was all before I even told him about events that happened, before my dad went missing, why I always thought he was murdered, who I thought did it, and why they did it.
    He seems to think that there is a very good chance that the medical examiner will change status from undetermined to homicide, after reviewing the autopsy. Then the police will become involved.
    I hope and pray he is right. This has haunted me for many years. Not knowing has been torture. I have tried to not think about this too much, for so many years, just so I could function. I has always on my mind. I need to know what really happened.
