    I am not familiar with that case but I will look it up--by the way, too many cold cases involve police investigations that look like the keystone cops. I have been shocked at the absolute botching of investigations by law enforcement.

    I believe that these cases are solved properly but I just can´t get them out of my mind. So sad, senseless and nightmarish...:
    • Kimberly Cates and her daughter Jaimie (she survied)
    • Amora Carson
    • Shanann, Bella, Cece and Nico Watts
    And the unsolved cases:
    • Madison Scott
    • Abigail Williams and Liberty German

    I think it was a mixture of things that led to her unfortunate, uncalled for acquittal.

    I agree with this. The Adelson’s are involved somehow.

    Of course, I will never get over the jury in the Casey Anthony trial.

    Anything to do with Robert Durst.
    This guy is an evil, evil monster!
    IMO he’s enjoying revisiting all of his crimes.
    Sickening, dangerous ..not even human…just put him away!


    MOO

    Honestly, when I see his ugly face I just change the channel. I have no interest in anything to do with his monstrous murders. After a jury acquitted him after he decapitated and killed a man, I just stopped paying attention to anything involving this freak. I still can't get over how a jury could have acquitted him but it did point out how stupid jurors can be.

    Yes! I can't figure out how they could not connect the very small amount of dots on this case!!!

    This haunts me. Heartbreaking.
    One reason is because of the way the authorities handled it.

    The Dozier School for Boys, in Florida.
    Occasionally throughout their century of horror, authorities would be made aware of what was happening.
    However, it didn't truly end until the school closed in 2011.
    They were still finding bodies just a couple years ago.
    I think they're still trying to ID some of them.
    We all experience and learn about events, situations, occurrences, etc that affect our worldview. This is one of mine.

    EDIT:
    Per Wikipedia:
    Remains were still being found in 2019 and many were still unidentified.

    Per WTSP from 2020:
    "The lead forensic anthropologist, Dr. Erin Kimmerle, with the University of South Florida research team presented updates to the state on the ongoing search for lost graves at the rural property."

    She said that searches at the site have ended. They may search again if there is credible information that more remains might be there.

    Per "My Panhandle," from this year (2021) :
    Attempts for restitution to the victims has stalled in the state legislature. Also, the buildings were/are being leveled. There are plans for a permanent memorial.

    I don't focus on a single case, but injustice in general, so they come and go. But I heard a True Crime Brewery podcast today about how this psychopathic wannabe opera singer in New Zealand murdered his entire family - plot twist, he was the son, not the father -- and was convicted to life in prison with (cough, cough) no chance of parole until after sixteen years.

    Of course, that poor criminal who laid in wait with a loaded gun to murder his mother, his father, and his siblings didn't get a fair trial. So the marshmallows in New Zealand exonerated him and set him free, because some popular ex-Rugby player (!) waged a public campaign in favor of his innocence.

    This world is a joke, a vale of tears, and the wicked run amok.

    Darlie Routier, ooh, I get mad just thinking about her. And alleged family annihilator William Bradford Bishop. The FBI NEVER caught him. I'm beginning to wonder if they'll ever catch that Laundrie guy who may have murdered Gabby Petito.

    I am struggling to get a case I read about yesterday out of my head. Google Stephen Schap, Diane Schap and Gregory Glover and you’ll understand why.

    Betsy Faria's story! I can't believe that evil Pam Hupp got away with the murder in the first place! I knew it was her long before any of the other evilness about her came out. Especially because Betsy had signed her life insurance over to her not long before she died. I can't believe the way the cops allowed her to bamboozle them so bad that they wouldn't even consider her a suspect. And Russ had a solid alibi, yet somehow, the prosecution wanted us to believe his friends would lie for him so he could kill his wife! I honestly don't know how they found him guilty in the first place.
    Yup, I knew it was her all along. If those investigators would have done their job right the other people Pam killed might still be around. Whats even crazier is the fact that she became emboldened because she got away with Betsy's murder. And set up Betsy's husband to take the fall! Then goes out and gets herself in deep by killing that poor man from the trailer park causing the whole mess to unravel around her. This story has finally worked itself out and the truth has been told, but it sure was frustrating to watch as the story unfolded, knowing that Pam should have been in prison from the start!
