Guest Post: 4 Infamous Crime Partners

4 Infamous Crime Partners

For every good guy there is a side kick and for every bad guy there is a partner scheming behind the scenes. Whether they were a couple romantically involved or twin brothers there was always double the trouble and double the crimes. Here is a look at 4 infamous crime partners:


Bonnie and Clyde: Perhaps the most notorious couple of all time was Bonnie and Clyde; there have been many books, songs and movies about this dangerous duo. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were born in Texas and crossed paths at a young age. Both were young and relatively good looking. Together they robbed numerous locations throughout the Great Depression and were rumored to have killed a handful of innocent police officers and civilians. They were both killed at a shootout when police found them in their Louisiana hideout.


Leopold and Loeb: Perhaps the youngest and ‘smartest’ criminal pair in history. Nathan Leopold was a young law student that spoke 5 different languages and came from a successful family. Like Leopold, Richard Loeb was a law student from the same affluent neighborhood. Both were very confident and egotistical in believing that they could commit the perfect murder without getting caught. Unfortunately, their neighbor and distant relative of Loeb was their first and only victim. But obviously their planned was flawed and the two were caught. Loeb died in prison and Leopold completed his sentence and later moved to Puerto Rico where he died.


Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid: This infamous duo started independently and small with their crimes. Butch Cassidy (Born Robert LeRoy Parker) was born a troublemaker and joined forces with Mike Cassidy a horse thief whom has his namesake. The Sundance Kid (Harry Alonzo Longabaugh) earned his name for doing time at a young age in Sundance, Wyoming jail for horse theft. After his release Butch and the Kid crossed paths and formed the gang Wild Bunch that later was responsible for many robberies and killings. At the end of their crimes Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid fled to Argentina, it is unknown how they passed away because they were never found.


The Kray Brothers: Identical twin brothers Ronnie and Reggie made their name in London during the 1950-60’s. Both were raised in a civil and modest family and were educated individuals; most couldn’t believe that these two were behind many armed robbers and larceny. The twins were well known club owners and became a big part of the London social scene. They were both eventually caught and sentenced to life in prison, where one passed in 1995 and the other 2000.

Verdict being read in the Vanessa Coleman torture-murder trial

OK, it is what I expected. She has been found not guilty for all charges concerning Chris Newsom, but guilty of facilitation of murder for all charges with Channon Christian. And a theft charge too (for the ForeRunner). So, I don’t believe she is facing the death penalty now. But I think she can spend the rest of her life in prison. Sad, but it looks like she and her lawyers are smiling and laughing about this at the defense table. They may believe she got off easy, but not really. She still has lots of guilty verdicts and will be in prison for a very long time. The judge CAN sentence her to consecutive sentences making it impossible for her to ever be a free person again.

A Forbidden Romance Is Captured On Camera…Will These Images Also Expose a Killer? – 48 HOURS MYSTERY, Sat. March 7

A CAMERA CAPTURES A FORBIDDEN ROMANCE, BUT WILL IT ALSO EXPOSE A KILLER?

CBS NEWS “48 HOURS MYSTERY”– SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 2009

On June 9, 2008, Travis Alexander, a young and successful executive, was found repeatedly stabbed to death in his Mesa, Ariz. home, the final moments of his life captured on his own digital camera. In addition to his murder, those images uncovered a forbidden romance, one that could also expose his killer.

Despite a troubled and poverty-stricken childhood, Travis Alexander grew up to become a larger-than-life character. Fully embracing his faith as a Mormon and his success as a businessman, he had the world at his feet. He recognized this same drive to succeed in Jodi Arias, an aspiring photographer he met at a business conference. The pair quickly became an item and Jodi made Travis’ world her own, even adopting his Mormon beliefs. But in time, the spirituality that connected them would also prove to be an obstacle.

Theirs was a tumultuous relationship – filled with break-ups and other liaisons – complicated further by their faith, which dictates no premarital sex. Eventually giving in to their desires and photographing their many exploits, the young couple was painfully aware that in the eyes of their spiritual community they were living a lie.

But it was a different lie, one that Jodi told about the night Travis was killed, that would eventually expose their secret and put the would-be photographer at the center of a murder investigation.

Was it a fatal attraction? Did Jodi Arias kill Travis Alexander out of jealousy? Or was she an innocent victim who lied out of fear?

CBS NEWS “48 HOURS MYSTERY” PRESENTS NEW DRAMATIC DEVELOPMENTS IN THE CASE OF A CHILLING DOUBLE HOMICIDE IN

“INVITATION TO A MURDER,” NOW ALSO AVAILABLE AS A BOOK BY PRODUCER GAIL ABBOTT ZIMMERMAN

 

SATURDAY, DEC. 13 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

 

When Mark Winger fatally shot an intruder he was hailed as a hero. The nuclear engineer says he was in the basement of his picturesque Springfield, Ill. home when he heard a thump. Racing upstairs, Winger grabbed his gun and was faced with his worst nightmare when he discovered a man beating his wife Donnah with a hammer in a horrific scene that ultimately ended in the death of both his wife and her killer.

 

It seemed like an open and shut case of self defense and Winger was quickly cleared of any wrongdoing. But one rookie investigator believed that there was more to the story. Unable to let go of this hunch, he relentlessly tried to get the case reopened, but to no avail, until four years later, when a new witness helped put the pieces together and expose a shocking truth: Mark Winger was the mastermind behind a complicated plot to murder his own wife.

 

As new dramatic developments have emerged 48 HOURS MYSTERY has gone beyond the broadcast to document the case in more detail in the book Invitation to a Murder by producer Gail Abbott Zimmerman. Available in bookstores now, Invitation to a Murder is the fourth release in the 48 HOURS MYSTERY series published by Pocket Books, a division of Simon and Schuster.

 

            Richard Schlesinger also reports on these new developments as part of a special presentation of 48 HOURS MYSTERY: “Invitation to a Murder,” Saturday, Dec. 13 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). This broadcast is produced by Gail Abbott Zimmerman and Douglas Longhini. Al Briganti is the executive editor. Susan Zirinsky is the executive producer.

 

Editors’ Note:  This is a 48 HOURS MYSTERY doubleheader beginning at 9 PM (ET/PT) with Harold Dow’s report on two remarkable and haunting cases of murder that could be connected in 48 HOURS MYSTERY: “Deadline For Justice.”

Did The Pressure To Close Mortgages Lead To Murder? — CBS “48 Hours Mystery” 11/22

DID THE PRESSURE TO CLOSE MORTGAGES DRIVE A LOAN OFFICER TO MURDER HIS CLIENTS?

CBS “48 HOURS MYSTERY” – SATURDAY, NOV. 22

For nearly a year Renee Ohlemacher was suspected in the murder of her parents, Bernadette and Greg, who were shot in their Albuquerque, N.M. home in August 2005. Renee says, upon hearing the gunshots, she squeezed herself into a closet and called the police. Certain that the killer knew the couple, investigators began questioning Renee’s every move after discovering that she did not immediately dial 911, opting to call a non-emergency number first. And her family had their doubts about her innocence too. Renee, who some family members considered spoiled, was set to inherit nearly $1 million from a life insurance policy. Her questionable behavior the morning of the murders and her cold demeanor in their wake did nothing to quell their suspicions. But with no physical evidence linking Renee to the crime, the probe began to stall, until a chance encounter would expose the unlikeliest of suspects – the couple’s mortgage broker, Ron Santiago.

Santiago, a self-proclaimed people pleaser, was facing mounting pressure to close loans and eventually turned himself in to the Secret Service, admitting that he forged two checks when he could not deliver on a loan. But as the Secret Service dug into Santiago’s past, their investigation would reveal something more serious. Did the stress of his job drive Santiago to murder?

Did A Texas Millionaire’s Outrageous Sex Life Lead To His Murder? – “48 HOURS MYSTERY,” Sat. Nov 1



Caption: Charlie White had a zest for life and an unbridled passion for women

A MILLIONAIRE’S OUTRAGEOUS SEX LIFE MAY HAVE LED TO HIS GRUESOME MURDER – ON “48 HOURS MYSTERY,” SATURDAY, NOV. 1

Charlie White was a larger-than-life Texas millionaire. Ambitious, bold and brash, he lived a lavish lifestyle that included a private jet, luxury vacations, parties and beautiful women. But it all came to a gruesome end in 2005 when police were called to his lakeside mansion. The eccentric millionaire had been murdered, mercilessly beaten, with an extension cord wrapped around his neck several times.

By first impression, White was a very likeable person, but as police began investigating his murder, a darker image of White began to emerge, one of a cruel man with a dangerous mean streak sharpened by arrogance, alcohol and women. With an unbridled passion for the fairer sex, White bedded and rated the sexual prowess of over a thousand women, including strippers and prostitutes. And White didn’t stop there, satisfying his sexual appetite with the girlfriends of his own son Darin, who he also used to pick up women to fulfill his needs.

With his outrageous lifestyle and sexual conquests, White had no shortage of enemies.

“Somebody had had enough,” says a family friend, “somebody wanted him dead.”
