Whodunnit, and why? All about criminal investigations and the forensic methods used to search for clues and collect evidence to get to the bottom of the crime.
Reason First: Did Evil Hands Spark this Delaware Fire?
Smoke plumed from what was once a structure planned to provide housing. This story appeared in the Crime Section of Delawareonline.com app. Is this a suggestion that an arsonist caused this whole scene of destruction? The case is under investigation and the State Fire Marshal of the New Castle County Division wants answers. But isn’t it clear? Whomever sparked the blaze is against property rights. This is all said because of the criminal link to this story. More often than not, fires set to buildings under construction remain the handiwork of suspects out to destroy values. Even the beleaguered FEMA website has a section on arsonists and construction sites. So it would appear as if this alleged arsonist was equipped with just enough combustibles to burn the would-be-house down to the earth.
The start of something criminal
There are real problems going in our society that people are either unaware of or they simply close their eyes and pretend they do not affect them or even exist . But these problems only get worse with time . Maybe those who believe as so many do have developed a habit of ignoring social issues and really think they are not directly impacted by the problems that are all around us . But in reality given enough time the same issues that were looked over and discounted as being irrelevant will eventually make their way to their doorstep. Those unaffected will be affected.
The Security of Art in Egypt
An elite group of art thieves breaking into an Egyptian museum is a romanticized notion that movies and works of fiction have speculated about for what seems like centuries. For today’s museums, however, protecting ever-popular ancient works of art is a huge and costly reality. The need to protect artifacts from theft, while still allowing patrons to see and learn from these works, is a complicated science. Security on all popular works of art is important, but it is specifically important for ancient works, which are subject to natural erosion and destruction over time as well as destruction due to crime.
The Gardner Art Theft
The laws pertaining to art theft cases have always been subject to changes and upheavals. As of today, there is a twenty-year statute of limitations on art theft. However, in the past, the government only allowed a five-year statute of limitations for general thefts, including artwork. How long an investigation should continue before the FBI finds a culprit or the case closes without a conclusion has always been subject for debate. This debate continues now that the statute of limitations has expired on one of the biggest art thefts in the world- the theft from the Isabella Gardner Museum.
Reason First: Could Knowingly Spreading COVID-19 Be Considered a Crime?
Where is the line drawn on the fact that COVID-19 could possibly be spread intentionally? White supremacist groups, according to law enforcement papers, plan to weaponize the COVID-19 virus. While it may be just a hollow shell and not a full clip of live rounds, police agencies are considering what a bioweapon would look like with this novel disease. These groups target non-whites primarily but wouldn’t there be collateral damage as the brown, black, red, and yellow people that potentially could spread the coronavirus to whites? Neo-Nazis and skinheads may not have thought that far in their devious planning. Or they see such people as sacrifices for “the greater cause.”
Hungry Like The Wolf
Filicide, by definition, is the deliberate act of a parent that murders their own child. The word by itself sounds as sinister as the deed, and the deed is unimaginable to most of the population. Though filicide applies to both parents, it is particularly shocking when a woman ends or attempts to end the lives of her children. Children born of her own body. How can a woman willingly and knowingly cause a defect in the flesh of her flesh, and watch as the blood of her blood spills from that defect?
Johnny’s Data Diving Part 5: Is Ghislaine Maxwell Sharing Child Porn in Canada? - Free by Royal Decree.
I had been intently tracking a pedophile who was sharing their perverse data from the Canadian city of Montreal. The username had caught my attention and left me hooked on this specific hunt. The IP address was coming from a small cladded office building surrounded by a high quality security fence with CCTV cameras which covered all perspectives. A pleasing row of large satellite dishes lined the rear of the relatively plain facility and there was no signage to inform a passing onlooker of what kind of business was located inside. The property had about four floors and sat alongside the local Home Depot’s car park on the western edge of downtown Montreal.

Missing Or Murdered, Part Three
Most of us have lost someone important to us. Death is a natural part of life. We go through the process of mourning and we try to continue to live life without our loved one. For many though, the opportunity to mourn or to make sense of what is happening in their life will never materialize. The object of their desiderium is missing. Vanished without a trace.
Johnny’s Data Diving Part 4: Criminally Profiling the Modern Day Digital Pedophile & a Call to Arms!
Somewhere, in the deepest recesses of the American Rust Belt, a man named Ron DuPont is filling his computer hard drive with dog porn. I have often thought about poor old lonely Ron, tugging away at his naughty bits to the sight of a woman and her canine lover. But alas, I am too busy to reach out a gloved helping hand to the psychologically bent Mr. DuPont at this time. And what would I even say to such a disturbed fellow? I just hope that Ron’s fetish remains in the virtual world for the sake of his own animal friends.
Scary Unidentified Serial Killers
I've always been so fascinated by true crime and especially serial killers. There's something about these cases that are just so scary. So, I decided to scare myself even further by looking at serial killers that have never been caught. Most of them probably never will be caught, unfortunately.
Bad cops are real. They are real and they are dangerous. Their badge seems to excuse their behavior, and they often rise above the laws they are sworn to protect. Body cameras that should be able to provide a clear and indisputable record of what happened during any questionable incident often "fail" to collect information. It seems if you simply pin a badge on your chest, you are free to kill at will in Evansville, Indiana. It's become commonplace to hear one more press conference about yet one more officer involved shooting. Line of duty deaths or cold blooded murder? You decide.
