Police think they found gun used to murder Lorenzen Wright

It’s been seven years since Lorenzen Wright’s body was found in a remote field outside Memphis, unrecognizable, decomposed and riddled with bullets, and for much of that time there have been few, if any, developments of note in the unsolved July 2010 murder of a 34-year-old NBA veteran.

Thursday brought news of a significant piece of evidence, though, as investigators discovered in a Mississippi lake what they believe to be one of the guns used to kill Wright, per multiple reports.

“They just called me to say they have some good news,” Wright’s

Suspect in 2 cold case murders found working at Florida Toys R Us …

A former New York City resident was arrested in Florida on Wednesday in connection with two separate, decade-old cold case murders, according to WPIX.

Christopher Gonzalez, 36, was discovered by police working at a Toys R Us in Naples after a fingerprint left behind during a 2000 murder in the Bronx borough of Manhattan was linked back to him 17 years later.

Gonzalez’s first alleged victim, 19-year-old Dora Delvalle Almontaser, was found by her mother on Dec. 2, 2000, strangled to death with a phone cord in her family’s Bronx apartment.

Although bodily fluids were recovered from the young victim and one fingerprint was left behind at the scene, they could not be identified at the time, WPIX reported. 

On Sept. 3, 2005, state police found the

The unsolved murder of a greengrocer found almost decapitated and floating in a village pond

At lunchtime on September 26, 1896, Swansea fruit and veg man Jesse Hill disappeared.

He had been into the town centre earlier that day on business, and was last seen heading home along High Street and Carmarthen Road.

Then he vanished.

Ten days later his body – wounds to his skull, and his head almost severed from his body – was found floating in a pond in Cwmbwrla.

The mystery of Mr Hill’s disappearance, his violent death, and the subsequent trial of the man accused of murdering him gripped South West Wales. The case also gives a fascinating glimpse into Victorian society – a world so similar to ours in many ways, yet in others so very different.

Using newspaper clippings and court reports from the time we are able to piece together the story of Jesse Hill.

Mr Hill was a 48-year-old greengrocer and market gardener who lived with his father – a hay and

Cold case solved decades after teen found murdered


Janie Landers and Gerald Dunlap

Janie Landers and Gerald Dunlap

SALEM, Oregon — Oregon State Police say a cold case dating back to the 1970s has been solved. It was in 1979 when investigators say Janie Landers was stabbed to death and her body dumped near Silver Falls State Park.

For years it went unsolved, until now.

Detectives said it was a small amount of blood found on Landers’ shirt that linked her death to a man already serving time in an Oregon prison.

“You are happy that you got this news,” Landers’ sister Joyce Hooper said. “You are sad because it doesn’t, it’s not going to bring her back.”

OSP Detective Steve Hinkle was assigned the case in 2015. He said the agency looked over the case and digitized every aspect of it. They also

UPDATE: One year later, sheriff said they’ve found the rifle used in the unsolved murder of a Minn. deer hunter

The rifle belonging to Terrence “Terry” Brisk was found, and authorities believe it was the weapon used to kill him. Brisk was found dead on Nov. 7, 2016, on his parents’ property east of Little Falls. Autopsy results from the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office concluded Brisk, 41, died from blood loss resulting from a gunshot wound.

Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen made the announcement Friday, Nov. 3,  at a news conference at the Morrison County Government Center in Little Falls.

“Investigators assigned to the case knew that finding his rifle would be like finding a needle in a haystack,” Larsen said. “We found that needle. We found Terry Brisk’s rifle.”

Brisk’s Winchester Model 30-30 lever action rifle was preserved and submitted immediately to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension laboratory after it was located. Larsen said although forensic analysis continues, investigators believe it was the murder weapon.

Larsen said he wouldn’t provide further
