The Crime Review 2011
January- David Anthony Durham shoots police officer after playing hookie from work in anticipation for an arrest, his house is located in the grid search for missing 7 year old Kyron Horman. **Unsolved, **Unrecovered
February- “Onda” Chris George- featured in a cold case investigative report in November 2010, Chris was recovered on February 21, 2011 . **Unresolved Possible Homicide
April 1 2011- Successful prosecution and life sentence of James Hattaway. No April Fools joke. Hattaway, a suspect in the disappearances of Onda Chris George, and Tracy Ocasio, was convicted of attempted murder of Rachael Clark .
The alarming violent abduction of 20 year old student Holly Bobo. Miss Bobo has not been located and their have been no updates by the TBI in her case for several months. No named person of interest in the case. **Unsolved, **Unrecovered
May- Terrorist leader Osama bin Laden is executed upon refusal to surrender by US Navy Seals.
May/July- The trial of Casey Anthony resulting in her acquittal in all changes except 4 counts of lying to police. Ms. Anthony has been renamed the C-word by www.blinkoncrime.com and recently released her first video diary as a blonde with a really bad cut.
June- Disappearance of Jacque Waller, wife of former cop and general con man Clay Waller. Jacque has not been recovered, but Clay is in prison on unrelated charges currently and the couple’s children are in the custody of Jacque’s family. According to Clay’s dad , he has already confessed to her murder.
June -Successful prosecution resulting in a life sentence for the murder of Christine Sheddy, a 5 part cold case series developed in 2010 and featured on BOC for the purposes of progressing her case. Justen Hadel, one of the primary suspects in the case ending up confessing, and our information was correct that Christine was murdered on the Byrd road property. I spent a day on in 105 degree weather followed by a mini-hurricane on this hell-hole property I will never forget. I continue to seek justice in the hope a prosecution will follow for Clarence Jackson and Tia.
July/August 2011- Celina Cass missing, and recovery of her remains. While it is presumed a homicide, her cause of death has not been determined or released. Wendell Noyes, her stepfather is the only non-official person of interest. Celina’s mother left him while he underwent psychiatric care upon the news of Celina’s recovery. It is my solid opinion that Wendell is involved in Celina’s death and disposal of her remains in a water treatment (). There have been no arrests or indictments in this case to date.
August 19, 2011. West Memphis Three- Two days after I wrote a series about the murders of 3 8 year old boys in June of 1993 by 3 teenage boys known as the West Memphis Three, all three plead guilty to an alford plea after the state agreed to a deal proffered by the defense team, funded by the Hollywood elite. So far, Reese Witherspoon has been cast as Pam Hobbs, mother of Stevie Branch. In November, the parents wrote a letter to the Chair of the AMPAS documentary committee asking that they not con sider the HBO commissioned Paradise Lost 3, Purgatory for an award. We featured the entire letter as a front page on the site, in support.
September 2011- The Susan Powell case- The roller coaster of we found remains, wait, not remains, but former remains in burned wood chips. The subsequent arrest of Susan’s freak in law
October 2011- The disappearance of Karen Swift, mother of four. Karen was located on December (), and has yet to have her autopsy completed or her remains released. Sheriff Box of the Dyer County Sheriffs Office has not named a suspect, but it is widely known that the primary person of interest is David Swift, Karen’s recently estranged husband.
Missing 10 month old Lisa Irwin- No new anything in this case, since Joe Tacopina of Joran VanDerSloot fame took the case to represent the parents. A lead developed from Deb Bradley’s phone produced a juggalo chic whose phone was called in what is believed to be in the middle of the alleged crime, and did ping close to the Irwin residence. Megan Wright’s former boyfriend known as Jersey was subsequently arrested for tampering with a vehicle. She claims not to know anything in the case and that her phone was used by several members of a household she was since asked to leave.
Amanda Knox Acquittal- what many did not know about the prosecutor will change most of your opinions in this case. Blink dubs Giuliano Mignini “The Mike Nifong” of Perusia.
November/December: The Nittany Nightmare-
Over 40 counts of child sexual abuse are filed in an indictment against former PSU offensive coordinator and Second Mile founder Jerry Sandusky. Tim Curley and Gary Schwartz are indicted and held for trial for perjury in their grand jury testimony. Mike McQueary stands firm in his testimony during the preliminary hearing. Blink uncovers a possible insurance scandal paying the legal bills.
