    Who's Who in Cold Cases

    I know there is a thread like this in most forums, I figured why not one here? A lot of us are almost family. Maybe a little background will help us all understand our individual viewpoints. (And if Richard is not an MIB, with the knowledge of what happened to Amelia Earhart, John F. Kennedy and what happens to that other sock in the dryer, I've been mistaken all this time!!)
    My name is Mark, I live in upstate NY. I've been married 15 years, with two boys, 14 and 3, who are absolutely the whole reason I exist. I spent almost ten years in the Army, including visits to Europe, Saudi Arabia, Honduras and Cuba. At present, I am the security director for a large hospital in northern NJ. Most days off find me hiking with the boys or just doing anything outside that includes the two of them.

    Not surprisingly, my name is Susan. I live in Mt. Pleasant Michigan, home of the Soaring Eagle Casino and Central Michigan University. I have a master's in history from said university and currently work at a small Mexican restaurant. When I'm not working, I'm writing mystery fiction (as yet unpublished) and researching the disappearance of Dorothy Arnold, or doing genealogical research. I've been married 18 years and have two cats, Night and Caramel. My favorite television shows are all the CSI Series and Law and Order CI.

    Hi! I am known as just "laini" online. I live in the midwest, married to my husband x 10 yrs with two kids. I am a nurse. I read websleuths everyday. I got started by looking up BTK online last year, before we knew who he was, but when he came "back" and started leaving messages again. That lead me to this website somehow, and I have been hooked ever since. I enjoy reading everybody's opinions on these cases.

    Hi, I came to webslueths by looking up a local murder victim online. A link led me to WS and I stayed. I am divorced with 2 kids. I am off on a disability, so I spend a lot of time here. I have always loved reading, and when I turned to true crime, well WS just fit right in. So I guess you could say that crime led me here, the people kept me here. I live alone, and so WS fits my reading hobby, my curiosity, and some of my socialization needs. I admire the way so many of you can take a victim and come up with so much information on them. I think of the people here, not so much as sleuths but as searchers. Searching for truth and justice for the victims. Keeping their names alive until justice can be found.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    hi im Alyssa or alie. im from central connecticut i work full time in retail and have a cat and a dog . im on leave from college i still dont know what i want to get into maybe crimnal justice but im not all to sure. in my spare time i like to write poetry i even wrote a few poems on some missing that were listed on ws. i found ws when that florida girl who was on the way home from a friends house never made it back and how they saw her go through the car wash and how this guy killed her. her story made me want to look up other missing children i started looking in my state and found the picture of janice pockett who tuched me. from the moment i saw her picture something was telling me i need to find out answers. further searching led me to ws where they were discusing sharon marshall and had mentioned janice had been tested against her. ever since then ive been hooked.

    I am very new here, although I have been interested in cold cases/unsolved mysteries since I was a child. Currently I work as a high school English teacher and a romance and children's book novelist. I am married to a college professor (for 15 years now) and have two children, ages 14 and 9. We also have 4 cats (the newest being just 6 weeks old and 3/4 of a pound), 2 dogs, numerous tropical fish, on hamster who died on October 29 but miraculously came back to live on October 30, and 2 fiddler crabs.

    My name is Marilyn. I'm originally from Texas, but now live in Pittsburgh, PA. I am a widow, and work as an intellectual property paralegal. I've always loved reading mysteries and solving puzzles, so cold cases are right up my alley.

    I've been lurking in Websleuths for quite a while, and only began posting about a month ago. Now I can't go a day without checking the cold case threads to see what is new!

    My name is Meaghan. Sometimes I'll go into a flurry of WS postings then drop out of sight for months as is my habit. I run the Charley Project, a website dedicated to publicizing missing persons cases. I have some REALLY cold cases on there -- one from 1910 even.

    My name is J and I live in New York City. I work for a former U.S. Senator, prior to which I did sports marketing. I love to read, including true crime stories. My father was a police officer and introduced me to crime shows like Forensic Files, FBI Files, etc. I'm not really sure how I came to this sight, but I was hooked after reading about Sharon Marshall and Maura Murray.

    who is who I am

    I am usually known on the internet by this user ID (docwho3.)
    I have a couple years of college courses in electronics under my belt
    and a year and a half of computer courses taken on a part time basis.
    The comp courses include repair & upgrade, networking, cabling, html web page design and a few programming courses and computer business apps. I have also worked part time at medical transcription and helped my wife study for her degree in office tech/medical option. I write a little poetry, and a fiction book (not yet published as I still need to submit it. - lol.) My internet search skills probably aren't as top notch as some I have seen on websleuths but I contribute where I can. My wife is recovering from AML (Accute Myelogenous Leukemia.) She had a bonemarrow transplant back in the end of May. Things are going well so far. I am staying home with her until she recovers.
    Websleuths is one of the ways I try to do something constructive with my free time while I am at home.

    My name is Gail. I am married with 3 children. We live in a little country town in VA. We have a farm with cattle, a dog and 2 rabbits.

    I have a degree in Paralegal and about a year left on a Criminal Justice Degree.
    I came to WS while following the Taylor Behl case, and then found the cold case section while looking for info on a crime that happened near me, the Jennifer, Michael and Mary Short murders.

    I have been out of work for 2 yrs on disability. When I'm able, I come here to read, while at other times I'm doing what I can to find out more info on the Short case. I love true crime reading! The rest of my spare time is spent with my family who is very active in all sports programs at their schools.

    I have learned alot from all of you other websleuths here and hopefully will have something to contribute when my own schedule slows down a bit.

    Hi, my friends call me Ria. I am a recent college graduate with a BA in Black Studies with an emphasis in law and legal justice, I will be attending law school next fall. I've have been interested in missing persons cases since my freshman year of high school and stumbled across WS earlier this year. My mission in life, through our legal system, is to make the world safer for all people but most importantly the women and young girls who fall prey to the sick individuals that live among us.

    It looks like there are several newer posters here, and I just wanted to say wecome. We all come with our previous life experiences and contribute and learn together. The more people involved, the more experience and ideas we get. So new posters are always welcome.
