Jason Young: The Accused Murderer

It has been 3 years since the brutal murder of Michelle Young and her unborn son Rylan on the night of November 3, 2006.

Jason Young's life since that night has been filled with bad luck and has not been what I imagine he planned it would be after killing his wife and unborn baby. I bet he thought he would be free to frequent gay bars and continue to sleep with Michelle's college friends while at the very same time spend the insurance money he had placed on Michelle and was waiting to collect.

Instead he has spent the last few years almost in hiding. He lost custody of his now 5 year old daughter to his in laws and was found responsible for Michelle's death in civil case where he was ordered to pay Michelle's family millions of dollars.

It is so gratifying to read that Jason has finally been arrested and charge with the murder of Michelle Young.

On Monday, December 14th it took one of two investigators just 20 minutes to convince a grand jury to charge Jason Young with the premeditated murder of his wife. This tells me that investigators spent three years building a solid case against this monster and it will finally be worth the wait.

No bond has yet been set which confirms that he will spend Christmas behind bars where he belongs.

Three years ago Michelle was found bludgeoned to death on her bedroom floor by her sister who was urged by Jason Young to go over to the home. It was always clear to me he did so in order to have Michelle's body discovered and to get his then 2 year old daughter rescued from an empty house and bloody crime scene.

The unbelievable notion that this man killed his pregnant wife so violently while his little daughter was at home is simply cruel and warrants the death penalty. He then left his baby girl in the house with his beaten lifeless wife on the floor.

Jason claimed he was traveling on a business trip and left his home while Michelle had company, instead he drove to a hotel a few hours away and checked in, changed his clothes and drove back to his home, where he entered, possibly surprising Michelle and then beating her. At some point his daughter entered the bloody room leaving her footprints in several areas.

It is suspected Jason cleaned his daughter's feet off, changed her clothes and gave her a heavy dose of Tylenol hoping she would sleep through the night (she was found the very next day with clean clothes and feet). He then fled the home and began his drive to his parent's house.

The very next morning Jason Young called his sister in law and left her several messages to go over to his home to retrieve a fax detailing a gift for Michelle that he wanted to keep a surprise. Michelle's sister did not understand his urgency and took her time getting there, and when she did she found her sister murdered and her niece alone.

Jason Young refused to cooperate with police from the very beginning.

I look forward to seeing the other evidence against Jason and seeing him finally pay the piper.

Casey Anthony’s Defense Team is Desperate

It seems Casey Anthony’s defense team has finally jumped the shark and named the real killer of beautiful Caylee Anthony as Roy Kronk, the meter reader responsible for finding Caylee.

I guess I saw this coming, I honestly knew that there was just no way they were going to continue and go to trial with the fictitious Nanny as the suspect. Their suspect is Roy Kronk? I never thought they would go that far.

Casey’s lawyers filed a motion in court yesterday to ask permission to dig deeper into Roy’s past and pick it a part by bringing to light any of his past aggressions in order to use him as a tool to raise reasonable doubt for the jury.

The defense claims they have information that Roy may have had inappropriate contact with children and that one of his ex’s claims she was held against her will for two weeks bound with duct tape. Note: Caylee Marie’s little skeleton was found in the woods just feet from her mother’s home with duct tape attached to her skull.

Roy Kronk who worked in the area watched the investigation into the disappearance of young Caylee with the rest of the world, he was concerned and one day during his route saw a bag in the woods he found suspicious. He alerted the police, but it seems the officer who responded to the call didn’t really want to look and thought it was nothing but garbage, but Roy wasn’t as easily convinced and he contact police two more times about the bag, finally forcing them to actually go digging for this bag. Sure enough it was indeed Caylee. The officer that responded to Roy’s calls was later fired for lying about his encounter with Kronk and making it all seem like it wasn’t a big deal. Roy gave his name several times, unafraid to be linked to the case, he wanted Caylee found and in the end he succeeded.

It is a real coincidence to me that the same officer called out to look for the bag in the woods was the officer who early in the investigation was seen taking a theft report from George Anthony regarding some stolen property at his home. It continues to be suspicious that others connected to the Anthony’s were seen very close to the area Roy Kronk described to the officer poking around and looking for something themselves.

I have always believed the Anthony’s were told Caylee’s body was in those woods in that area and were trying to beat Law Enforcement in finding her. I recall several times when Tim Miller was trying to search for Caylee, the Anthony’s would show up and cause a disturbance and tried desperately to stop the searches and interfere. I think they are really angry with Roy Kronk’s persistence in getting that bag fully investigated.

Roy Kronk is responsible for hammering the final nail in Casey Anthony’s coffin. He found the body before her people could.

The Anthony’s and Casey’s defense lawyers had secretly hired a private detective to investigate Roy Kronk’s past, I can only imagine the instructions he received, and I think it went something like this:

“Find any dirt you can on this guy, his family, anything you can get on him that we can use against him to make him look like the real killer.”

Am I worried? No. Why?

Because Casey Anthony did not report her daughter missing and never would have reported her missing, if her mother didn’t end up catching her red handed with no Caylee hanging out with her new man.

Because Casey Anthony was the last person seen with Caylee Anthony and Casey Anthony will have to explain how a perfectly alive Caylee disappeared and why she Casey did not immediately seek help in finding her, but instead went on lying to family and friends about Caylee being just fine and dandy with her loving Nanny.

How will they reconcile the lies she told about a Nanny kidnapping Caylee? How will they get Caylee from Casey’s arms into Kronk’s arms and then into the woods?

I dear friend of mine told me the burden of proof lies in the hands of the prosecution and that defense will not have to prove a thing, their job was to throw theories around and hope the Jury thinks one of those theories is reasonable enough not to charge the defendant.

I think when the jury hears Casey Anthony’s voice calmly telling investigators that she spoke to her daughter just an hour ago on July 15th and that she seemed fine, meanwhile her daughter’s body was already a skeleton in the woods near her house, Roy Kronk’s name will not even be a factor.

57 Registered Sex Offenders in a 3 mile radius of Missing Somer Thompson.

UPDATE: The child found in the Georgia Landfill was indeed little Somer. The search for her killer continues.

Yes, 57 registered sex offenders living in a three-mile radius and then an additional 37 when expanding to a 5 mile radius of where little 7 year old Somer Renee Thompson disappeared on her way home from school on Monday in Orange Park, FL.

Can I ask why there isn’t a law to limit the amount of sex offenders living in a specific county or community? What keeps these offenders from overpowering a neighborhood and living dangerously close to schools, libraries and parks where kids often frequent? Can’t we keep the most dangerous and serious offenders from acquiring a driver’s license, library card and other items that can make their hunt for kids easier. I honestly do not believe in rehabilitation for sex offenders and I fully understand that an 18 year old boy can have sex with a 16 or 17 year old girl and become a sex offender and have to register, but I am not talking about him. I am talking about the ones who hurt little children the ones who commit aggravated assaults, the ones who groom the kids and abuse them for years, the monsters who shatter lives, who take them off the streets, the most dangerous repetitive predators.

Somer was walking home from school with her twin brother and her 10 year old sister as she does every day, but on this day she fought with her brother and ran up ahead of the group, she passed one crossing guard, but between that one and the next, Somer vanished.

Leaving school at 2:50pm they had to walk a mile before arriving home and with 57 registered sex offenders and an additional 37 that could easily make the drive there, how does a school not offer a bus service to all children? Of course to add to the danger of this mile walk is the neighboring woods that could have easily served as a hiding place for a potential predator.

I remember my own son, who attended school 14 blocks away from our home, I tried to sign him up for bus service and was told he had to live 16 blocks from the school, so he missed it by 2 blocks and because of this as a working mother I was forced to figure out how to get him home safely. On some days he had no choice but to walk alone at 11 years old and I held my breath at work for those 10 minutes, bought him a cell phone and tried to arrange for him to walk with other students as far as he could, but in my heart I felt like I was putting him at risk. This is not a way to live, but it is the reality of our world. There are evil, sick people out there and children should not walk home alone, period.

Shouldn’t a school be aware of the amount of offenders surrounding them and then take precautions jointly with parents to ensure the safety of the children during the exchange of hands?

The investigation: Currently, police are searching a landfill in Georgia where the garbage from Clay County is dumped, they are saying it is only procedural, however, I know that it takes lots of time and money and is extremely dangerous to search landfills. Law Enforcement would not be doing this just because they want to cross it off some list.

I hope and pray that Somer ran into the woods to hide from her brother because she was mad at him. I hope and I pray.

There is a $25,000 reward. The amazing Texas EquuSearch is now on the scene and hopefully Tim Miller can bring this baby home. He is my hero.

Christopher and Channon: Is the death penalty enough?

There are crimes of passion, crimes of revenge, crimes of rape, crimes for money and greed, but the crimes for no reason other than evil are the most horrifying.  There is no real motive, no feeling, no logical explanation other than evil monsters doing evil things.

Often times screen writers try very hard to write the scariest horror movie, they try to put the audience in the movie using all the creative juices they can muster up to scare you by inventing tortures scenes, but nothing can be scarier than real and true crime.  The idea that this could happen anywhere to anyone and actually did happen to two normal and promising young people is more frightening than any movie.

I first heard about this crime in an email forward, the details so sick that I immediately thought it was fake and researched it on snopes (website to debunk email scams and fakes).  To my horror the email I received was very true and very real.

Channon Christian, 21 and Christopher Newsom, 23, went out for dinner on January 6, 2007 at a local restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee, they were scheduled to attend a friend’s party that very night, but sadly never made it.  After Channon did not arrive for work the next day, her friends and family began to worry.  They contacted police and were told to wait a while, that perhaps the young couple left of their own free will, but while they waited and called local hospitals, the unthinkable was happening.

Channon and Christopher were carjacked for Channon’s Toyota 4runner early on January 7th at gunpoint by George Geovonni “Detroit” Thomas, 27, Lamaricus Devall “Slim” Davidson. 25, Letalvis “Rome” Cobbins, 24 and Vanessa Coleman, 18.  Almost as quickly as they were carjacked, the very car that was stolen was dumped and a new plan was in place, the young couple were taken to Lemaricus Devall "Slim" Davidson's rental home at which point the crime of carjacking turned into something far more devastating and non-media friendly.

Christopher was tied up and beaten, he was then repeatedly raped in front of his girlfriend, he was then drenched in gasoline and dragged from the home to a nearby railroad where he was shot several times and then set on fire.

The four maniacs then returned to do far more damage to Channon who at the time was I can imagine was still reeling from seeing her boyfriend beaten and raped and then dragged from the house screaming.  For her it would be far worse as she was hog tied and raped anally, orally and vaginally.  She was severely beaten, she was sexually assaulted with objects that left the medical examiner sick with the knowledge of how far and to what extent this torture was taken.  Cleaning liquid was forced down her throat and poured over her genitals.  This did not happen in a matter of hours, this was happening over and over again over a couple of days while countless people searched for her.

With the help of the telephone company Channon's family found her car which was dumped really close to where she was being held.  Evidence in the car took two days to process, this includes a fingerprint from one of the suspects, this fingerprint could have led authorities directly to Channon's location, but again police did not yet suspect foul play, that is until someone found Christopher's charred body by the railroad tracks.

The fingerprint was processed, a search warrant was issued and authorities went into the home where Channon was being held, except, they were too late, Channon was placed in several large garbage bags, her face was wrapped in one of these bags and she was placed in a large trash can in the kitchen of this horror house.  Channon died not of her injuries, which were extensive, but from lack of oxygen.  Her body told the tale of torture and unbelievable evil, the savages left her broken, but they left her full evidence, their DNA.

Many people knew this was happening in the inner circle of friends these monsters had, many people tried to hide them, protect them, destroy evidence, but in the end they were caught, their faces revealed.

It has been extremely difficult to get information on this case as it got very little media attention and my guess is that is because the details are gruesome and unbelievable.  No one wants to read about how a young beautiful couple were tortured and murdered for fun.  There are also many blogs screaming about racism on both sides, how this was or was not a hate crime.  All five suspects are black and both victims were white.  I think as far as the specifics of the crime it is fair to say this crime blew past any hate crime line and is in another category all together. 

The trial has begun for Lemaricus Devall "Slim" Davidson - I pray that death will be enough justice.


  • George Geovonni "Detroit" Thomas, 27, faces a total of 46 charges. Thomas was indicted on 16 counts of felony murder growing out of the rape, robbery, kidnapping, and theft of Christian and Newsom, 2 counts of premeditated murder, 2 counts of especially aggravated robbery, 4 counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, 20 counts of aggravated rape, and 2 counts of theft.
  • Lemaricus Devall "Slim" Davidson, 25, (b. June 13, 1981) faces the same 46 charges as Thomas. Davidson had also completed serving a five-year sentence in Tennessee on a previous felony conviction for carjacking and aggravated robbery on August 5, 2006.
  • Letalvis "Rome" Cobbins, 24, (b. December 20, 1982) also faces the same 46 charges as Thomas. In 2003, Cobbins was convicted of third-degree attempted robbery in New York state. He and Davidson are brothers. 
  • Vanessa Coleman, 18, was arrested by police in Lebanon, Kentucky. She faces 40 Tennessee state charges. Coleman was indicted on 12 counts of felony murder growing out of the rape, robbery, kidnapping, and theft of Christian and Newsom, 1 count of premeditated murder (of Christian only), 1 count of especially aggravated robbery (of Newsom only), 4 counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, 20 counts of aggravated rape, and 2 counts of theft.
  • Eric "E" Boyd, age 24, was arrested in connection with the carjacking.

Where is Lindsey Baum? Time is the enemy.

It is a scary statistic that almost half of the children abducted by a stranger are killed and of those who are not killed, 4% are never returned home.  Almost all of these children are murdered in the first 48 hours.  Time is a crucial enemy in these cases.

On Friday, June 26th 2009, 10 year old Lindsey Baum was walking home from her friend’s house in McCleary, Wash., a half a mile or 10 minute walk to her home at about 9:30 pm when she suddenly vanished without a trace.   She had initially gone over to her friend’s house with her 12 year old brother and her friend who lived at the home to ask permission for her friend to return to the Baum house for a sleep over.  On their walk over, Lindsey and her brother got into an argument about his bicycle.  An adult and neighbor witnessed the fight and in order to end it, sent Lindsey's brother back home, allowing the two 10 year old girls to continue their walk.  Once at the friend's house Lindsey was told that her friend was not allowed to walk back with her and sleep over her house.  The parents of that child then instructed Lindsey to head home before it got too dark.  A neighbor returning from work, saw Lindsey on her way back home at about 9:30 pm, but by 10:00 pm, Lindsey's mother began to worry.

Lindsey's mother then called her daughter’s cell phone only to hear it ringing in the home.

She called Lindsey's friend's home only to find out her daughter had left over a half hour before. Lindsey's mother went searching for her daughter and by 10:50 pm the police were called in.

Law enforcement moved in quickly and investigated the registered sex offenders in the neighborhood and reviewed surveillance footage from businesses along her route home.   It was like she simply just vanished. It has been over a week and no sign of Lindsey Baum.

It has come to my attention that this 10 year old girl also had a myspace page and listed herself as 99 years old, interested in dating, serious relationships and friendships.  Some of her posts are disturbing in that in May she says she has been having bad dreams and that she is afraid something bad is going to happen.  Her parents were currently going through a divorce and she writes that she is glad her brother is locked up in juvee.  Her posts are also made at 4am and 6am, it is disturbing that she is online so late at 10 years old.

From her myspace:

Banner - disturbed
Getting a lot of nightmares lately
Bad feeling
bads gonna happen

Lindsey had been swimming with friends earlier in the day and was also seen at a local video store.  I keep coming back to the small window between the time the neighbor saw her at about 9:30 pm and when her mother traced her steps at 10:00 pm.  For this to be a stranger abduction means that the perpetrator would have had to come across Lindsey by chance between 9:30 and 10:00 pm and taken her without anyone seeing it happen or having it picked up on any surveillance in the area.  Or even more terrible, could this person have been following her all day? Maybe saw her at the pool? Video store?  Was this a neighbor who called her into their home under false pretenses?

Law enforcement has checked in almost every home and car.  Are they onto the same theory?  That she may still be in the neighborhood, held against her will?

I really hope this child is found soon, but time is not on her side should this be a stranger abduction.

Tracy is missing..

Another woman is missing in Orlando, Florida, she was last seen leaving a bar early on May 27th with a man she had known for two weeks. 

Tracy Ocasio, 27 and James Virgil Hataway, 28, had met the week before and were seen kissing at the bar on the night of May 26th right before video surveillance captured them on tape leaving the bar together at about 1:30am early on the morning of May 27th.

James told police that Tracy offered to give him a ride home and asked for marijuana.  He says once they arrived at his home he showed her what drugs he had and Tracy changed her mind and left.  

Newly released reports show that Tracy's phone made a call at 4:30 a.m., 3 hours after James says he was allegedly dropped off at his home, the call caused a ping from one of the cell towers in his neighborhood. Reports state the Law Enforcement has contacted the person the call was made to and no other information has been released.   This confirms that Tracy was still near his home at 4:30am, or at least her cell phone was.

 Tracy’s car was found the very next morning with the two front seats pushed forward after her cell phone pinged again in the neighborhood at 8:30am. The car was found a block away from James’ home, however no cell phone was discovered in the car and Tracy was gone.

At first authorities did not rule out the possibility that she may have left James’ apartment and then met with a grim fate at the hands of someone else. 

Oh but James Hataway is quite the character, he has been arrested before and has had a few run-ins with other women who have in the past offered him rides home.

As soon as the story broke several women came forward to tell their stories about James.  One woman said after she offered him a ride home from the bar she worked at, he tried to strangle her in her car after she refused to give him oral sex.

Another woman barely escaped after walking him to his door and saying goodbye where he then tried to break her neck and shoved his fingers in her mouth to break her jaw.  She still carried the scars from the fall she succumbed too after running away from him.

More friends have come out of the shadows to tell of his violent anger and behavior and yet there are other’s like Tracy’s best friend who said he seemed so “nice”.

Even his own mother states she has not spoken to her son in several years and spent most of his teen years in juvenile court with him.

James is currently in police custody on other charges and has failed a lie detector test regarding Tracy’s disappearance.

There is more, it seems a friend of James disappeared in March and James was seen walking out of the woods near the friend’s abandoned car just as police arrived to investigate the vehicle.  There has long been suspicion around his involvement in that case. His friend has yet to be found.

James has often threatened people by saying he could make them disappear and no one would ever find them. (Why do people say these things? Do they want to be suspected of murder?)

James also works for his dad’s pond, shoreline drainage company and was arrested and has many complaints for dumping debris in secluded areas where dumping is not allowed.

Ocoee police seized a computer from the home of James Hataway.  Police served a search warrant after detectives discovered Hataway is obsessed with "murder, suicide, cannibalism, vampires and serial murders," according to a press release. (This means nothing to me, because if anyone searched my computers they would find my research for this blog, which at times is very morbid).

I sincerely hope they find Tracy soon and that this again serves as a lesson learned that not all “nice” guys are nice.  Nor are all cute guys worth risking your life.

I do not blame Tracy, because she should be able to live in a world where it is safe to meet a new guy and assume he is what he seems to be and after two weeks offer him a ride home without worrying about being killed.

Law enforcement is asking anyone with information about Ocasio or Hataway to call CrimeLine at (800) 423-TIPS.

Caylee Anthony: Autopsy Report

The results and full autopsy report was released to the public against the Anthony family's wishes.  

It arrived in 36 pages, ready for all crime writers to dissect.  It is available for everyone to read and gulp with every morbid detail.  It is very difficult to believe it has been a year since that little angel was taken from the world.  All of her future experiences erased, no children to raise, no husband to meet and marry, no wedding, no friends in school, no science projects or book reports, no more dresses..no more.

I strongly believe her life was taken by her mother in the most cruel and simple way.  No drugs to numb Caylee, no poisons to put her calmly to sleep forever, instead just barbaric disposal.

I have the read report and the three most revealing and important finds are that there were no drugs in Caylee's hair and bones.  Her body was completely skeletonized so it is impossible that Casey ever received any calls from Caylee during the time she was missing.  Her time of death was immediately after she was seen alive, but the most damaging and heartbreaking part of the report is the description of the duct tape that was place not only over Caylee's mouth, but also over her nasal passages and that this act was done before the body began to decompose. In other words, while she was still alive.

Basically, the only reason to place duct tape over a person's mouth is to keep that person from screaming or crying, the only reason to place tape over a person's nasal passages is to keep that person from breathing and the only reason to do both is to murder that person.

In this case that person is a 2 year old girl.

I believe the reason the death penalty was put back on the table against Casey Anthony is because it became clear to the State Attorney that Casey Anthony simply wrapped her daughter's mouth and nose in duct tape and kept her from breathing until she died.  I can further speculate that she then just tossed her her daughter into the trunk of her car that very last night she was seen alive and left her there while she went to Blockbuster with her boyfriend, all the while her daughter is unable to breath in a locked hot car.

By morning Casey realized what she had done, convinced herself to forget the entire thing and left her daughter in that car for several days until the smell became unbearable and that was when she removed her, got a tattoo to express her new free life and then decided to break ties with her parents for good.

The Imette St. Guillen Trial

Remember Imette St. Guillen?  

Her murder hit very close to home for me.  

She was enjoying a night out in New York City with her best friend and was found dead the following day. 

New York City is my home.  I believe it to be fairly safe when bar hopping with friends on warm summer nights.  But it wasn’t summer this night, it was a cold February night and Imette ended up alone and at the mercy of a monster.

I have always wondered why Imette stayed out alone.  She was really smart, well versed and was about to get her Master’s Degree in criminal justice.

So what made her stay out alone until 4:00am that cold winter night?  What made her drink until her alcohol level was at .17 – twice the legal limit?

It took 3 years for this case to come to trial.  Finally it has begun and Imette will get her justice.

On February 25 2006, Imette had just returned from vacationing in Florida and met her best friend at the Pioneer bar in lower Manhattan for some drinks, by 3:30am, Imette’s friend was tired and decided to head home, but Imette insisted she wanted to stay out a bit longer.  Her friend checked up on Imette 30 minutes later and during their last conversation, Imette said she had gone to another bar and would be home later.

She eventually walked into The Falls bar and her fate was sealed, or could it have been avoided?

It was 15 minutes before their 4am closing time at the Falls bar, according to workers, the bar was empty.  Why didn’t they refuse her drink order and send her home?

The bartender’s testimony is that Imette walked over and sat at the bar and ordered two rum and diet cokes, she served her and then walked away.  The manager, Danny Dorrian, states he noticed she was drunk and wanted her to leave.  He then forced her to leave by asking his bouncers to walk her out. It wasn’t until 18 hours later that an anonymous call came in to the police department from a payphone in Queens alerting them to Imette’s body.

She had been violently raped, brutally tortured, her long dark hair was cut off, masking tape was wrapped around her head and a sock was stuffed in her mouth, her body was found in the weeds along the Belt Parkway.  The Belt Parkway is a road I often take and at times while I am driving I look over at it and my heart sinks, because as a child my father would take us there to watch my uncle fish and now the memory is tainted by the image of Imette’s body lying there cold, alone and dead.

Darryl Littlejohn, one of the bouncers on staff that night at the Falls bar is on trial for the murder of 24 year old Imette St. Guillen.

He claims he is being framed by the bar owner and his family.  

The Dorrian’s are the owners of another bar linked to an infamous crime.   The Red Hand is the bar in which the “preppie killer” picked up and later murdered Jessica Levin in 1986.  The Dorrian’s also have connections to the former mayor of NYC and are rumored to be very well connected to other influential people in NYC.

He claims the Dorrian family is framing him to spare the family the shame and scandal of having one of their own be named a murderer and further ruining their family business.

Danny Dorrian claimed that due to his family’s history with the Levin murder, he was at first reluctant to give Law Enforcement information at the very start of the investigation into Imette’s murder.  He felt he could just say he never saw her and spare the family any bad publicity; he just didn’t want to get involved. 

Initially he told police very little about what happened that night.  But a week after the murder the police confronted him about his bouncer’s criminal record and only then did Danny Dorrian admit to police that Imette seemed drunk and he ordered her to leave the bar and told Littlejohn to escort her out.  It is illegal and super irresponsible for a bar to employ an ex-convict to conduct security.  At the time Littlejohn was out on parole after serving 12 years in prison for drug possession and robbery.  He was in violation of his parole by being employed at a bar as well as violating his curfew.  A simple background check would have alerted the Dorrian family to these facts.

Littlejohn’s defense attorney is a woman and it amazed me to hear her say that Imette was out on the town looking to get some “action” and “hook up” and maybe even with Danny Dorrian.  She alluded to an affair between Danny and Imette and even wanted to make it appear that Imette was out looking for it.  There is absolutely no evidence to support her stupid theory and she should be ashamed of herself.

But but but..before you even start to think that Littlejohn could have been framed, let us examine his history and the evidence.

Littlejohn had a fake police badge.  How did he get this badge?

Well it seems there was this school in NYC where you could take a 3 day course in bounty hunting and then at the end of this course receive a badge, official handcuffs and other identification that resembles that of a NYPD officer.  The school took in hundreds of students and after being investigated was shut down for giving 73 ex-convicts these copy cat I.D.s.  

Littlejohn was known to often impersonate an officer and is currently serving a 25 year to life sentence for the kidnapping of another woman.  In that case he was dressed as a police officer and using his fake badge from his bounty hunting course, he instructed the woman to show him her I.D.; he then put hand cuffs on her and forced her into his van.  She screamed and fought back and eventually jumped out of the vehicle as it was moving.  The van was later shown on television in connection with the Imette St. Guillen murder, she instantly recognized the van and Litteljohn.   

The evidence (so far):

Cell phone Pings: 

Terence Li, a T-Mobile engineer, testified in Brooklyn Supreme Court that Darryl Litlejohn made a series of phone calls between 7:15 p.m. and 8 p.m. in the area in East New York where St. Guillen's body was eventually found on February 25, 2006 -- a day after St. Guillen disappeared from a SoHo bar. 

Li said Littlejohn can be placed at the location where St. Guillen's body was found because of a call he made at 7:31 p.m.  Records show that the call Littlejohn made bounced off one of the cell phone towers near the area where St. Guillen's body was found.  (NYPOST)

The Ex-Girl:

His ex-girlfriend also testified that Littlejohn called her and instructed her to lie to police and tell them that he had driven her car on the night of the murder to visit his sick mother in a retirement home.  His alibi fell apart when his ex decided to tell the truth and testify against him.

The Witnesses:

The bartender that served Imette that night said that Imette wandered into the empty bar about 15 minutes before the 4:00am closing time, she sat down and order two rum and cokes.  She later remembers Danny Dorrian telling her “This girl is crazy, she doesn’t want to leave the bar”.

Another witness says he saw Littlejohn sitting next to Imette chatting with her and heard them discussing what race she was and then Littlejohn and another bouncer walked Imette out of The Falls bar, the other bouncer returned, but Littlejohn and Imette did not.

The Dirtiest Quilt in the World and DNA:

Tests confirmed that semen (DNA) on the coverlet wrapped around Imette’s body matches the brother of her suspected killer.  Littlejohn’s brother died in 1994, long before St. Guillen's death, but the DNA match adds to a growing pile of evidence against Littlejohn.   Also found on the quilt was pubic hair and DNA from Littlejohn’s late mother.   

Carpet fiber and rabbit and mink hair on the 24-year-old grad student's body was consistent with carpet fiber at Littlejohn's home and two coats hanging in his mother's closet.  (Daily News)

The Violent Family History: 

Littlejohn’s brother died of an asthma attack in 1994 while being arrested for the rape and murder of a young mother, he also killed the woman’s husband.  He tied and torture the woman in the same way Littlejohn tied and torture Imette.

I will continue to update as the trial moves along.

State Attorney's Office Seeks Death for Casey Anthony

The State Attorney's office has now flipped on seeking death for Casey Anthony.  It was made clear a few months ago that they would not seek the death penalty for the young mother, but today it all changed.

The state attorney's office is citing "sufficient aggravating circumstances" as a reason for changing the game plan.

This means that Jose Baez, her lead attorney, will not be able to defend her at trial, he is not qualified to lead a death penalty case.  In my opinion he is not qualified to lead a pack of monkeys into the jungle, but a digress.

I wonder what caused this turn of events?  Is it new evidence of guilt recently returned from the lab? Like DNA or blood on Casey's shoes? Maggot tests results back? Toxicology on the baby that shows she was poisoned with chloroform?

I am sure the spectacle her parents made during those depositions didn't help her cause, the obvious lies and cover up for their daughter must have infuriate a lot of people at the state's attorney's office.

Is this a call to Casey to take a plea deal and confess or face death and eternal damnation?

Will she confess? 

Will she shake in her sleep tonight and awaken in a cold sweat?

Will her parents still go on Oprah as they are planning to? (Yes they are scheduled to appear on Oprah during the MAY sweeps).

If anyone deserves death, it is a mother who murder's her child leaves her in the trunk of her car while she goes out to party, then throws her in the woods and continues to cook for her new boyfriend and go about her days lying to her family, getting her nails and hair done and getting tattoos while smoking pot all the while her baby is alone in the woods with not one person on her side.

I am very skeptical about the death penalty, but sometimes it is clear when a murderer deserves the ultimate punishment.

I have No Words: Sandra Cantu's killer a Woman.

Little Sandra Cantu's suspected murderer is behind bars today.

28 year old Melissa Lawless Huckaby, the granddaughter of a local pastor was arrested for the kidnap and murder of the 8 year old girl, who was found stuffed in a suitcase 10 days after her disappearance from her trailer park home.

Melissa is a Sunday school teacher and a mother of a 5 year old little girl. Her story to Law Enforcement was proven false as she claimed Sandra came over to visit with her own daughter and later left, at the very same time she claims her suitcase, which she left in her driveway was stolen. She reported the suitcase missing earlier this week, investigators say this was a lie and it was the very suitcase Sandra was found in.

Investigators have indicated they believe Sandra was dead before she was even reported missing. They also announced they are NOT looking for any other suspects.

What was the motive here?

There are rumors about this woman drugging a child 6 months ago. Was that Sandra? Or another victim.

Are you surprised it is a woman?

A female, non-relative child murderer.

Investigators says she incriminated herself many times during the investigation and finally last night under questioning she reluctantly realized the jig was up.

Rest In Peace Sandra and my heart goes out to the Cantu family.

The Depositions of George and Cindy Anthony

Will the real Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez please stand up?

The Anthony's, the parents of accused baby killer Casey Anthony, were forced to give a deposition in the civil case against their daughter brought upon by a woman who has the same name as the infamous vanishing nanny that Casey Anthony claims kidnapped her daughter and then killed her, leaving her steps from her parent's home.

But first a recent update on the case is mind blowing, in that the judge assigned to the case has filed a complaint to the BAR Association against Casey Anthony's attorney.

Many people believe the reason behind this complaint is a deposition by a private investigator who apparently was seen on tape searching the very area and woods where little Caylee's body was later eventually discovered, in the video he is on the telephone seemingly getting instructions from someone on the telephone about where to search for Caylee. He was at the time the private investigator for the Anthony family or Casey's attorney, this is still unclear to me. The PI tells authorities that someone told him that if he should find Caylee's body that he should NOT call 911. Only Judge Strickland knows who gave the PI those instructions, and perhaps this was the reason behind the complaint.

It is utterly disgusting for me to believe that somehow the Anthony's or Casey's lawyer knew that Caylee was in the woods by admission of the murderer and that they were looking for it themselves. To do what with? Move the body? Get rid of it? Help their daughter beat this conviction at the expense of justice for Caylee?

Who is on Caylee's side?

Now we move on to this George Anthony deposition. and George Anthony Hostile

George is answering questions in the civil defamation lawsuit brought on by the real Zenaida, who wants to clear her name as her life was turned upside down by this family.

George is hostile, rude, arrogant at times ridiculous. At times it seems the lies coming out of his mouth are unbelievable even to his own ears. He believes in his daughter? What? He keeps threatening to leave. George you are NOT above the law so sit down and answer the questions. Maybe this is because Cindy Anthony was going to be deposed first, but very intelligently they switched the order, I bet so that George was caught off guard as I am sure he was planning to just repeat what Cindy said as per her instructions. Further the Anthony's brought in their own video camera to film themselves. Why?

George states he still believes there is another Zanny Nanny running around out there because his daughter says so. He thinks this civil case is frivolous and yet turns to Zenaida and says he wants to apologize to her and shake her hand. I bet that really pissed Cindy off!

I think this civil case is the only way to remove doubt about this woman being involved, had she not brought these charges against this family and got them on record stating she is not in fact the Zanny they are referring to, many conspiracy theorist out there would have continued to suspect her until the very end.

Now on to Cindy Anthony's deposition.  She doesn't wait long to get testy and sarcastic, she acts like she doesn't even know why she is there and the first question has not even been asked before she asks for the "relevance" of it all.  She rolls her eyes takes a drink, no respect at all for anyone.  

It gets worse.  This is Cindy's time to shine, to cast doubt on her daughter's guilt, to poison the jury pool.  She claims many things, things that she has never claimed before, like that she had many phone numbers and addresses for Zanny, oh but wait, Jesse Grund, Casey ex-boyfriend was the one who called the nanny "Zanny", that Casey merely called her "the babysitter". 

Cindy Anthony has often made comments about Jesse as she wants everyone to believe he is the true murderer.  Sorry Cindy but no one is going to believe that crap and if you had many phone numbers for this babysitter and addresses, then where are they? She states she no longer has them.

The lies are so ridiculous that squirmed while watching her. 

I want this all to end with Casey behind bars forever.
