    AL - Mobile - remains found on Myland Ave, 24 Oct 2011 -ID'd as Joshua Duncan

    Remains found on Myland Ave. to be tested


    MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - The Mobile Police Department is investigating possible human remains found in a wooded area on Myland Avenue.

    Corporal Chris Levy with Mobile Police Department said police received a call Monday, October 24, that bones had been found in a wooded area at the dead end of Myland Avenue. The Public Works Department was clearing the area. When officers arrived, they found bones that they believed to be human.

    "It's a pile of debris where they noticed the bones. It's going to be a while, and they are going to gather as much as they can, but we're definitely not looking at an entire skeleton. It's definitely, at this point, some miscellaneous bones, said Levy.

    Right now, police can only speculate that they are looking at human remains. The final determination will come from forensic testing, which could take months

    Remains found at shut-down shooting range are human, police say


    MOBILE, Alabama -- Remains found Monday by a city crew clearing land at a shut-down shooting range in west Mobile are human, Mobile police said.

    Spokesman Cpl. Christopher Levy said that no identity has been established for the remains, and no cause of death has been established.

    The remains were found in a heavily-wooded area being cleared on city-owned land at the north end of Myland Avenue, a residential street that runs parallel to north Cody Road and a block east, about half a mile north of the Overlook-Howells Ferry-Cody triple intersection.

    Levy said that, since the news of the remains first broke Monday afternoon, no families have come forward expressing concerns that the remains could be those of a loved one

    The land where the remains were found is the former police firing range that has been closed for several years since the new range near Big Creek Lake opened. "I remember training there," Levy said. "I was in one of the last police academy classes to use that range." The area is normally gated and locked, with signs sternly warning interlopers to stay out.

    From December 2012:

    http://blog.al.com/live/2012/12/conv...s_charged.html

    The Mobile County Sheriff’s office has arrested a paroled killer and charged him with capital murder in the death of a mentally challenged man from Semmes whose remains were found in October.

    Thursday morning, deputies took Dennis Hicks into custody for the murder of 23-year-old Joshua Duncan, who went missing in September 2011... Hicks befriended Duncan at a west Mobile church, and was the last person to be seen with him...

    Cochran said Duncan’s body, which was found on Oct. 24 by city workers in a shut-down pistol range near Myland Avenue in west Mobile, had been decapitated and disemboweled.
    And this week:

    Dennis Hicks, 57, has been convicted of capital murder in the death of Joshua Duncan...

    The penalty phase for Hicks is set to begin Monday morning in Mobile.

    From February 2016
    The Mobile County District Attorney's office tweeted Wednesday afternoon that the jury in the trial of Dennis Hicks has recommended the death penalty.

    Related: Not sure if anyone is interested, but here is a description of the double murder that Dennis Hicks committed previously. Really makes you wonder why he was ever let out of prison in the first place!!

    In grisly murder, judge agrees with jury's call for death penalty
    In keeping with a jury's recommendation, Circuit Court Judge Charles Graddick sentenced Dennis Hicks to death Monday for murdering and dismembering a man in the presence of children.

    Wrapping up a two-hour sentencing hearing for Hicks, Graddick ruled that "there can be only one penalty, and that is the penalty of death."

    (...)

    Hicks entered Monday's hearing with a list of objections and motions, arguing that the trial should be thrown out on several grounds. His hair now gray, and his voice nervous, he attempted to argue that his alibi hadn't been properly considered, that evidence had been planted and that his attorneys hadn't effectively represented him. "I just don't think they did me right," he said. "I was disinformed and lied to by both my counsel."

    (...)

    "I'm 100 percent innocent," said Hicks, describing the murder and his prosecution as "a double tragedy."

    As he approached his ruling, Graddick said investigators had found that three small children had been present in the residence where Duncan was murdered. Two of them had testified to details confirmed in forensic analysis of his body: That Duncan had been stabbed and disemboweled, and that his head and hands had been cut off.

    "It was very horrific," said Wright afterward. "It was horrific we had to put the children on the stand."

    Given the opportunity to speak to the court and Duncan's family one last time, Hicks remained defiant.

    "Had I been on the jury, I would have found myself guilty, because this is so rigged," he said.

    (...)

    Dorothy Duncan and other family members did not speak to media after the hearing. But in her own remarks to the court, she said that she planned to push for a law that would require people with violent crimes on their record to notify neighbors, as sex offenders are required to do.
