‘We think there are many, many more’: This former ‘cult leader’ killed a toddler, cops say

She was convicted in 2001 of child abuse for bathing a 12-year-old in chemicals and severely burning the girl’s body.

Now a cold case investigation that began in Florida and stretched into Georgia has linked 75-year-old Anna Elizabeth Young to the death of a toddler in the 1980s, according to a news release from the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia.

But Young’s arrest Thursday in Georgia is the beginning of a larger investigation into the “religious boarding school” she ran in Florida, just south of Gainesville, more than 25 years ago, police say.

“We think there are many, many more. We can document other states and other missing children that we believe are tied to this,” Art Forgey, Alachua County (Fla.) Sheriff’s spokesman told the Gainesville Sun. “They ran a religious institution — exorcising demons and other things like that. We have documentation involving her clear back

Unsolved murder: Mother killed execution-style in Brooklyn apartment stairwell – WABC

More than a year after a 26-year-old mother was found murdered execution-style in a Brooklyn apartment complex, The Brooklyn North Homicide Squad said it is no closer to catching her killer.

Detective Thomas Handley said Coral O’Brien was found shot multiple times and lying in the fetal position in the stairwell at 56 North Oxford Walk, a public housing complex known as the Whitman Houses around 11 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20, 2016.

“I think she was preyed upon a little bit,” Handley said. “I think she was young.”

Handley said despite what would have been several loud gunshots, no one initially called 911.

Officers received a single 911 call when a woman found O’Brien’s body in the stairwell nearly an hour later.

Initially, detectives had no idea who O’Brien was. They said she was discovered without any identification.

O’Brien’s roommate, Heather, who asked that we use only her first name, saw an alert from police

Region Cold Case Files: Who killed Daniel Shively? Dyer police say they’re looking for a Scion.

DYER — Serious crimes are few and far between in Dyer, a town of nearly 16,000 people that ranked in the state’s top 10 safest cities in 2016. 

But there’s one cold case Dyer police detectives can’t seem to shake.

Daniel Shively, 24, was struck and killed in the middle of the night June 3, 2012, and the driver didn’t bother to stick around to see if he lived. 

Shively had a family. He had kids. He was one of Dyer’s own. 

“As time goes on, we know it will be harder and harder to solve. But someone out there knows something,” Dyer Police Chief David Hein said. “This case stays in the back of our heads. Our detectives are constantly working.”

Though the case remains unsolved, it’s not necessarily for a lack of physical evidence.

Justice Moves Forward In Cold Case Of Black Man Killed For ‘Socializing’ With White Woman

 

It’s been a long time coming for the family Timothy Coggins, but 34 years is not too late for justice. Hope grows dim for scores of other Black families who need closure to racially motivated killings that are decades old.

The two suspects, in a gruesome murder that took place in 1983, are finally answering for their alleged crime. They had petitioned the court in a preliminary hearing to let them out of jail while the case moves forward, claiming that they’re old and sick.

VIDEO: Oakland cold case murder of musician solved; suspect killed in crash

 

OAKLAND (KRON) — It’s a major break in the murder investigation of an East Bay musician who was tragically killed outside of a nightclub in Oakland two years ago.

Twenty-six-year-old Emilio Nevarez was tragically killed in 2015. And on Thursday, KRON4 is learning new information about his killer.

Oakland police made the announcement Thursday. And they are hoping it brings some relief to the Nevarez’s family.

Until recently, Nevarez’s death was among OPD’s unsolved murders.

However, after a two-year joint Oakland police and FBI investigation, a tip came in that they say solved the homicide case.

“This past Monday the district attorney’s office made a
