Dead Wrong: Halifax’s unsolved murders

OK, boys…Pack it up…Back to what you were doing…We’re
done here…

Tom Martin had known it was coming. Call it his experience
or—perhaps, more to the point—his boss’s lack of experience.
Whatever, Martin had guessed this morning’s outcome even before Bill
Hollis, the staff sergeant in charge of major crimes, descended from
the department’s executive offices to personally deliver the
message.

The Halifax Regional Police task force set up to re-examine the
August 28, 1999, murder of Jason MacCullough was being
disbanded.

Pack it up…Back to what you were doing…

It was the summer of 2005. The re-investigation had begun the year
before after an informant had come forward with new information about
what happened in the park off Pinecrest Drive the night Jason
MacCullough was murdered, information the investigators

Neighbors of victim react to TBI cold case murder reward

LINCOLN COUNTY, Tenn. — Hosea “Junior” Prince, 79, chose to live on a quiet ​backcountry road in Lincoln County.

“He was a good guy. I believe he would do anything for you,” said neighbor Phila Groce.

That’s why even eleven years later, it’s difficult for neighbors to understand why anyone would want him dead.

It’s a mystery that particularly bothers Groce because the night Prince was killed, her family and friends were only a football field’s distance away having a Memorial Day party.

“We were all out here and then we woke up later the next morning to hear that he’d been killed and we didn’t know how,” Groce explained.

She said a man hired to paint the elderly man’s house found him in the bushes beside the home.

“This was really out of the ordinary, to know that someone was murdered real close,” Groce said.

She is glad to hear that the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is now offering

A Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) trained criminal profiler has given a chilling insight into the unsolved murder of New Zealand-born mother and Melbourne fashion identity Karen Ristevski.

Kris Illingsworth, a former Detective Sergeant in the NSW Police Force who has worked on some of the state’s most notorious cases, including the “Granny” murders on Sydney’s north shore and Ivan Milat’s backpacker killing spree, now works as an independent criminal behavioural analyst and investigator.

Ms Illingsworth is one of only a handful of Australians to have worked at the FBI’s fabled Behaviour Analysis Units (made famous by cult movie The Silence of the Lambs and TV crime shows like Criminal Minds) at the bureau’s Quantico academy.

Investigators with Victoria Police have remained tight-lipped on the case, which is getting colder by the day,

Judge weighing DNA request in radio host’s unsolved murder – Bryan

MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) — A judge is weighing whether to order a DNA sample from the former husband of a popular radio host who was killed five years ago.

Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner appeared in court Friday to seek approval to get the sample from Dr. James Kauffman.

Kauffman’s late wife, April Kauffman, was discovered shot to death in her Linwood home in May 2012.

She was a local businesswoman who hosted weekly talk shows and advocated for military veterans. She had received a governor’s award for outstanding community service a few days before her death.

Kauffman’s daughter has alleged James Kauffman, her stepfather, killed her mother. James Kauffman has denied that.

Tyner told The Press of Atlantic City (http://bit.ly/2r5NGDD) this month that James Kauffman is not a suspect.
