    I have a question about verified members. Are they professionals who are/were involved in a specific case or can they also be just a professional in a general sense as in a doctor or a police officer?

    I only ask because I am a funeral director and while I have never been personally involved with the cases discussed here, there were a number of threads I contributed to and gave commentary based on my profession. I was just wondering. Thanks!

    You can become a (general) "verified expert" in your field. More info here:

There are a zillion others that I can't recall right now.

    Here's a list from Goodreads to get you started.

    While I am new to this site, I am not new to the world of serial killing. I first have to caution on older books by Douglas and Olshaker, and would only read Douglas's most recent or they all tend to get repetitive, and are outdated. Initially, as Douglas was on the front line of developing "profiling," the information *was* new and seemingly factual, but as we learn more, it is an ever evolving field. Also, the DSM changes regularly and doesn't have a full grasp even today on where and how serial killing, spree, &c. fit in their causes, motivations, let alone a diagnosis.

    Although still not perfect, a good overview can be found in Scott Bonn's book "Why We Love Serial Killers," though it ranks low in Goodreads, it seems to be one of the most up to date definitionally and has insight into the most prolific serial killings to date- solved and unsolved.

    There are many books out there that are interesting, but I also recommend everything be taken with a grain of salt. Even serial killers who have been interviewed likely lie so there is still fiction in nonfiction stories on specific killers.

    But have fun, learn what you can, and each time a new crime is solved, we learn a little more.

    Im a new member just registered, anyone who knows me well knows I'm obsessed with true crime shows and networks (A&E, IF, OXY, etc). I find it interesting on how Criminal profiles, detectives, police, and FBI handle cases. I just finished watching The Killing Season. It's alarming the numbers that are being reported they believe over 200 are currently active and over thousands are their victims and that's conservative numbers. It's also discussed how the fbi have a database called The Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (ViCAP) is a unit of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation responsible for the analysis of serial violent and sexual crimes, organizationally situated within the Critical Incident Response Group's (CIRG) National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime (NCAVC). However over 17000 law enforcement agencies in the U.S. are not mandated to use this program hence the inability to detect connection, motives, murderers, similar Mos, etc. I don't understand how this isn't mandatory. Former fbi members are saying that it isn't that effective due to the lack of mandate. Why isn't this information required to take criminals off the streets. Why aren't we taking this seriously to prevent more victims and why aren't we catching more criminals. I think their needs to mandates and federal regulations on how things need to be discussed with the public, with the families, and other law enforcement agencies. Does anyone know of anyone in a government role is pushing to make the use of uploading information to VICAP mandatory? Seems this would be a good place to start....

    I would like to start a new post, or have someone contact me. I am just signing on to the website. I was born and raised in port Richmond and lived at 81 Ann street for the first 7 years of my life. I have reason to believe that Holly Ann Hughes is still alive. I would like for someone to contact me that is interested in this case.

    I'm a new Web Sleuth that joined your site by the way of Sword and Scale.


    There is a cold case for which I could not find a current Posting/Blog about on Websleuths.


    I first came across the missing person case when I was planning a move to Seattle, WA. As I was looking for an apartment from the other side of the Country, living in DC at the time, I came across an apartment complex in the International District. The name of the complex is Uwajimaya. As with all the apartments I was looking into I did some basic Google searches for reivews, etc. I happen to come across a young man, who has/had very similar demographics to me, that lived at Uwajimaya named Jeremiah Foco that disappeared ( https://www.geekwire.com/2015/oracle...onal-district/ ).


    I didn't digest the crime when I first read about it and I scheduled an appointment to view the Uwajimaya Apartments.


    I remember very vividly arriving on the street where the leasing office is located and paralleling parking my car. I stepped out of my car and as I took in the surroundings, sorting out where the leasing office was located, I noticed a flyer stapled to a nearby telephone pole and it was a missing person's flyer about Jeremiah!! This shocked me deeply as I began to feel a stronger personal connection to the case.


    I toured the apartments with a constant feeling of anxiety, yet I did not bring up the disappearance to the leasing agent.


    After completing the tour I moved on from the mental cognition of the case and began living my life without it present.


    It was not until the last few weeks or so, as I was binging on Sword and Scale, that this case popped back into my mind.


    From my initial searches most web data goes cold in June of 2016, which means there has almost been 2 full years since the Public was updated on this case.


    I would love to see if anyone else has investigated this case, what the current status is, if the family is still actively searching for him and what can Websleuths do as a community to assist in this case.


    I hope I did not bore you with my explanation. I do really hope to become active in this community and learn how to properly propose beneficial discussions about the case.


    Any suggestions would be a great help for me learning about how to be a great Web Sleuth!

    Just answered my own question. When I searched the site previously I was not yet logged in which I am guessing prevented from seeing the above thread.
