Welcome Danielle from TLC. Post your questions here

A big Websleuths welcome to Danielle Wilkinson of The Learning Channel.

Danielle contacted for some help regarding the TLC's new true crime show.

Here is what Danielle wants you to know:

Dear Websleuths Members,
TLC is producing a new true crime series.
We are looking for people who went above and beyond the call of duty to help the police solve a loved one’s case.
We are specifically looking for cases that were eventually solved due to the persistence and investigative work of friends or family members of the victims.
We are trying to highlight the importance of taking an active role in and investigation and let people know, they can make a difference.

Here is the info I promised:
Production Company: True Entertainment
http://www.trueentertainment.net/

The show will be airing on TLC.
TLC Site: http://tlc.discovery.com/

Please let me know if you need any additional info or have any additional
questions.

Thanks Again!

Sincerely,
Danielle Wilkinson
Story Producer

Welcome to Websleuths

Good afternoon. I also wanted to wish you a warm welcome and hope that you will find what you are seeking in our midst. There are many here who have been affected by one crime or another, and there should be a wealth of stories to be found. Hopefully they will reach out to you. Good luck and God Bless...

Juror No. 11 somehow made the journey from Casey is the one on trial to George may be a murderer, based on how George acted on the stand? 3 years of evidence against Casey and he throws George under the bus. Makes sense?
What evidence indicated that George might be a murderer? Anyone?
Weren't they to ONLY consider EVIDENCE?
This NOT GUILTY verdict throws Caylee right back into the swamp she decomposed in. Thanks to this "impartial" jury.

No true crime with any loved ones of mine, and I am grateful for that. How can those of us with no relation to true crime help?

I know she is here. Hopefully she didn't get called into one of those big shot producer type meetings where you get yelled at. I hate that when that happens

Welcome!

Kirk Bloodsworth, released from prison after many years. The book "Bloodsworth" was written about him.

He was twice found guilty of the sexual assault and murder of a nine-year-old girl. His mother-in-law knew he didn't do it, because he was with her when the crime was committed.

He was the first person to be exonerated with DNA evidence.

Perhaps you know of a crime in your area that may not have made national news.

Other than having a bike stolen when I was a teen years ago and scavage the entire city for it myself for several weeks, driving all over town meeting several odd characters that claimed they could help! I am afraid I am in the same boat as mysterycat.

All though a couple years later I walked by a porch I did actually find my bike sitting on it! But alas it was not worth the trouble by then to do anything about it.

Question if I may?

Does the crime need to be solved already or will there be a chance to highlight stories including family members who are still advocating, searching and have excellent theories regarding their loved ones situation?

WS Posters,

This is all new to Danielle so give her a bit of time to read and refresh. She is on reading but I know I forget how confusing it can be for a new person.

Casey Anthony case has taken over the news unfortunately so I am not sure if Nancy Ganguzza's case has had any national publicity. She was a jogger in Orlando that was bruttaly murdered, the suspect is still at large. I feel her case is very deserving of national attention.

Why WS?

Here's the "thing." I am new to this world of solving crime. I was trying to find a site that had lots of activity and a great mix of people. I wanted some people who were in law enforcement etc. but I was also looking for the Mom who helps in her spare time or the Dad who reads all he can on a particular case.
I am the student here and I am turning to all of you for advice.
I had been directed to Web Sleuths from several leads...so here I am!

Oh, and Jennifer Keese's case is still unsolved, but I think it may have had some national attention during the period she went missing.

Oh and Nicole was murdered several days before Caylee Anthony went missing.

Another thing that could be looked in a news story is the un-believable increase in murder overall here in the land of the Mouse!

Ideally...

yes we would like the crime to have been solved. Ideally, it was solved with the HELP of someone close to the crime.
For instance, we are featuring a a Dr. who was murdered. His son did EVERYTHING he could to bring the killer to "justice." He posted flyers, did news conferences, held media events, gave interviews, placed a reward and even started a MYSPACE page. In the end, a tip came in to the Myspace page and allowed the cops to crack the case.

This is a situation I know of from our area. I do know that EVERYTHING that has been done to find this man has been done by his family. He is still missing.http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/mpch/mpdetails.asp?id='M10/16/20062:46:21PM'
