The Odd Vanishing of Amelia Earhart
It's been more than 80 years since the odd vanishing of Amelia Earhart, but the world is still not sick of asking the question: where is she?

The False Prophet
I’m a huge fan of Investigation Discovery, and two weeks ago I came across a new show called Shattered. Shattered is about the impact of a crime, and what follows that life-changing collision.

1994 Executive Murders: Unsolved
1994 was a landmark year filled with news and pop culture events that made the world nearly stop turning. The Lion King, starring James Earl Jones, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, and Whoopi Goldberg, graced the big screen, winning several Academy Awards. The hit teen action-adventure drama Cowboy Bebop had won its fourth consecutive Viewers’ Choice Award, tying with Beavis and Butthead. The Nickelodeon teen improv sitcom that made Melissa Joan Hart a household name, Clarissa Explains It All, had ended. OJ Simpson had led police officers on a car chase in his white Ford Bronco for nearly five hours; his trial was not only prosecuted by the late Vincent Bugliosi, and had received more publicity than when he put Charles Manson behind bars on live television twenty-six years earlier. Nancy Kerrigan was clubbed in the knee by her rival Tonya Harding’s former boyfriend. Jacqueline Onassis Kennedy, a former First Lady and prominent figure in the disabilities community, passed away. There would be one event that would shock the world as much as the trial of OJ Simpson: the infamous Executive Murders. The circumstances were so gruesome, and to this day, the case has never been solved.
'Diana The Abduction Mystery Solved' - Interview with Rania Alammar
Rania Alammar is a Saudi ex-journalist, living in Berlin since she fled her country Saudi Arabia due to the unbearable governmental oppressiveness which inflicted her own way of life but more on her people who are against the methods of the ruling of Al Saud royal family. She never dreamed she would become an author. Not about Diana anyway but her life took her to that direction and she never resisted. Alammar has released a new book on the case of Diana Princess of Wales under the title (Diana The Abduction Mystery Solved.) The book is considered to be a thorough study of different sources and several investigative books that revives another possibility of what happened to Diana Princess of Wales in 1997. It’s a new reading between the lines that opposes the published result.
Innocent People Convicted of Horrible Crimes
"I'm innocent, I swear!" It's a cry that many people behind bars have said, especially during their trials. However, as much as the US legal system is supposed to work on the basis of "innocent until proven guilty," many people who are actually on trial realize that it's more of a "guilty until proven innocent" ordeal.
