    Things to do in Cases When There's No News:


    - Go back through threads and collect what you think are the top ten important links in the case, make a list of them, and post them. These lists would be great for both those familiar with the case, as well as people new to the case.

    - If there's no timeline for the case, create one and post it, or begin one that others could add to. Find the most recent timeline, update it, and post it. If an existing timeline doesn't need updating, check to see if it's been posted within the last three pages of the most recent thread, and if not, go ahead and post it again for people new to the case to read.

    - Write up your own recap of the story of the case and post it. Great for people who are new to the case, plus you get to give a voice to the victim.

    - Go back and collect the known facts of the case, along with their source links, and post them. If you don't have time to collect all of them, just do whatever you have time for, and ask for others to add to it.

    - Write up your own theory of what happened in the case and post it. Great to get others thinking about and posting on the case, and bring attention to it.

    - Find a picture of the victim that hasn't been posted for a while, and post it so there's always a face to put with the victim's name, reminding people that the victim is a real person.

    - Research to see if there's an updated missing poster and post it or link to it so it can be printed and distributed.

    - Find the most recent map(s) of significant locations, update them if necessary, or just post the list of links if it hasn't been posted in the last few pages. If there's already a map created with one tool, create one with another tool that might give a different perspective. Maps can be created with Google Maps (http://maps.google.com/), Bing (http://www.bing.com/maps/?FORM=Z9LH7), and other online tools.

    - Check Google News for the most recent news story, and post with a note that it's the most recent story on the case.

    - See if there's a candle lighting site for the victim. If so, light a candle and post the link. If not, create a site, light a candle, and post the link so others can light candles. http://www.gratefulness.org/candles/enter.cfm?l=ENG

    - Humanize the victim - see if you can find some of the victim's favorite things, make a list, and post them. Did you find the victim's favorite song? See if you can find the lyrics, and post a link to them. Did you find the victim's favorite place to go? See if you can find a website for it, for a link to it on Google Maps or Bing.com, and link to them.

    - Write up a recap of the victim's story, or a particular aspect of the case that interests or puzzles you, in your very own unique way, and post it.

    - Write up a Myth Buster! Do you know of a rumor or misinformation that's made the rounds in the case and has always bugged you? Look up the source links for the real facts, and bust the myth!

    - Find all the Nancy Grace transcripts for all the shows about the case, make a list of the links, and post them.

    - Add to this list of things to do and re-post it. Please send me your ideas too!

    Just some ideas

    Thanks!

    Hey Kimster maybe we should start a thread called "New Word on the Street" like on Sesame Street. LOL

    We learn alot of new things on this website. I'm thinking about Concerned Papa...his new word on the street was "lunar luminosity" (I think).

    I vote words and definitions. It might be quite interesting.

    I have to say I GREATLY appreciate when someone does a timeline and or a map. It just brings everything together and refreshes my feelings on the case. Getting around WS and going to the (sadly) so many cases I am so impressed with how many knowledgeable and talented members here. It can be very time consuming to be so detailed not to mention the enormous heart felt dedication to all of these victims. Honestly, WS inspires me to be a better person on a daily basis. There are a few of the suggestions I can do. So far I've mastered Google, copy and past and add 10% of the story...lol. I'll work on it

    Thanks BeanE, Kimster and all of the mods!

    while listening to "Peter" on BNN, he is the man who is the statement analysis, he mentions a woman by the name of Susan Adams. I found her paper, or dissertation in a web library and downloaded it and printed it out. She did a study on criminals already convicted, to see the correlations of verbal usage in the statements in which they lied under stress. She asks 6 questions guiding the inquiry and in just reading the questions and the basis of each question I can already see the deception in Misty's statements. It is a long paper 148 pgs, and I will most likey not understand 50% of it, but she give key words that indicate lies. So if you are really bored and want to dissect some of the statements, this paper will give you something to go on. I found some books on the subject, but even used, they were around $70 to $80 and up. I printed it out using "draft" mode and it went fast.
