This Week’s Carnival of the True Crime Blogs

carnivalbonnie2.jpgIt is once again my honor to host this week’s Carnival of the True Crime Blogs. And we have some great posts this week, so I will get started. First, we have Lilo of Lost in Lima, OH. She has a very interesting and thought-provoking post on perhaps the most infamous pedophile of the day, Jack McLellan. And believe me, this is not your ordinary post about him and his sick beliefs.

Next we have a fun post from Trench of MyCrimeSpace. I thought I had heard it all about stipidity, but these ninja-wannabees take the cake. I guess their training did not work well! Over at Crimene.ws, Trench also posts the latest news on Cho Seung-Hui that was released recently. Interesting news, but sadly, not unexpected.

Next up is a fascinating interview that Michelle Gray of In Cold Blog did with retired FBI Special Agents Jon Hersley one of the authors of Simple Truths: The Real Story of the Oklahoma City Bombing Investigation, along with Larry Tongate and Bob Burkehas on the investigation of the Oklahoma City bombing.

These were all of the ones submitted to me, so then I went in search of a few good posts from my fellow crime bloggers. Of course, one of the biggest crime stories of the past few days has been the story of the murder spree of Paul Devoe III, which went from Texas, to Pennsylvania, then to NY. Two of us posted on him. CrimeBlog has a GREAT post on it called Wanted in Texas and I highly recommend it. Steve has some great insights to the story. I also posted a bit on it: here, here, here, and here. It seems like this story, unfortunately, only gets worse everyday.

From Home Sweet Home’s blog, I found a sad story about Sonia Long, a 32 year old woman who just had a baby 2 months ago and was getting a divorce from her husband. Now, all of her children are motherless and scared, after words spoken to a 6 year old one night at bedtime.

From the guys at CrimeRant is a very interesting post on the newest political figure in trouble for a sex crime, Senator Larry Craig, who suddenly now says he is “sorry for pleading guilty”. He shouldn’t. Just take your punishment Senator and go away.

Over at the 1947Project, they always have great stories on historical crime in Los Angeles and the latest one is no exception. Winnie, Minnie, and Baby Norman is an interesting story about the death of a child and the search for the mother.

And finally, last Friday John Evander Couey was sentenced for the kidnapping and murder of Jessica Lunsford. I could not let it pass without saying a few words about this sentencing.

Well, that is it for this week. Enjoy!

This Week’s Carnival of the True Crime Blogs

crime.jpgIt is my honor to host this week’s Carnival of the True Crime Blogs.  And boy do we have some great entries, so let’s get started! First up is Tami with Crime, Interrupted. Her entry is her 50th post, so she wrote about a case that she feels very passionate about in Justice For Ariana and Tyler Payne?. This is a case I have never heard of, but will now be doing some reading on. Very sad indeed. One day there will be justice for these two beautiful children.

Next up, we have one of my favorite authors, Corey Mitchell with In Cold Blog. This entryFull Circle, written by Donna Pendergast, is about his new book, Evil Eyes, which I am very anxious to read. It is about serial killer Coral Eugene Watts. Very interest post about a serial killer who was almost released from prison.

Next up, Corey Mitchell presents In Cold Blog: Impeach Bush? posted at In Cold Blog. Here, Kathryn Casey offers a 4th of July surprise on a crime of a different sort.

From The Wanted Blog, we get a post about Revesby murders in Australia, along with some pictures. Revesby Victims & Suspect Named. It shows that murder in the family is not just an American crime anymore.

Next up, we have Lost in Lima, OH, one of my favorites. Today she presents Don’t Kill Him, He’s Stupid. Don’t let the title fool you, she (along with most people, including myself) is anxious for John Couey to receive that death sentence. If we did not execute stupid people, who would we execute?

Another one of my favorites, Trench from CrimeNe.ws brings us a bit of history with Versace not the only victim. I understand how he feels. Every victim, famous or not, deserves to be remembered.

From Steve Huff of CrimeBlog.US , I have actually chosen 2 different ones from him, as they are both very excellent posts and deserve to be read. First, is about the murder of Lina Zinnick in Who Has Zina Linnik? and Zina Linnik’s Murder: Other Victims? Such a sad story about a beautiful young lady. Also, he post on the murder of Robin Munis in Cheyenne, WY in The Hunt for BigSkyGuy8231: David Munis . Both great posts.

And finally, from myself of My Life of Crime, I bring the story of Bruce Mendenhall, the “newest” serial killer (well, at least to be arrested!), which connects to a post I made when during my first couple of months of blogging, the murder of Tammy Zywicki. Update: Bruce Mendenhall *How many more victims will there be?*

Well, that is it for this week. ENJOY!

This Week’s Carnival of the True Crime Blogs LXXXIII

fireworks3.jpgThis week it is my honor to host the Independence Day edition of the Carnival!  We will start out with an introduction today. Texas, My Texas: An Introduction gives us Carlton Stowers of the In Cold Blog. Carlton has written several books, one of which is on my current reading list: Careless Whispers

From Crime, Interrupted we have Three Weeks Ago: Chandler Serial Rapist which is about a serial rapist in Chandler, AZ who remains at large still. Police are hoping that anyone with any information, no matter how insignificant, wil come forward.

Next we have Lost in Lima Ohio with The Story Behind Duke and this is not your average story about the infamous Duke “rape” case. A very interesting one at that.

Now we have a rather sad story from Trench Reynolds of CrimeNe.ws, Hate crime survivor commits suicide. David Ritcheson was the victim of a heinous violent attack from 2 boys just because he was Hispanic and he kissed a white girl. He did not deserve what happened to him, however, both of his attackers received hefty jail sentences, which both equal life sentences.

Next we have Laura James of CLEWS The Historic True Crime Blog, which is one of my personal favorite blogs, who brings us On The Italian Hall Tragedy, Michigan’s Worst Mass Murder, With an Interview of Author Steve Lehto. This is a very interesting interview on a Mass Murder that most people are not aware of, even those who are familar with true crime.

And I have an entry myself from my blog of My Life of Crime: Movies Based on True Stories: Desperate For Love. My spotlight in June was on Movies Based on True Stories and this story was one that took me a long time to get the real story on. But I did, and here it is.

Well, that is it for this week’s Carnival of the True Crime Blogs LXXXIII. ENJOY!
