Nominee 2014 ABA Top 100 Blawgs! What wonderful news on the day my blog turned five years old: it is nominated for the 2014 American Bar Association’s Top 100 Blawgs (law blogs) in the category criminal justice.
Of course, I need your votes. But just like last year, your votes are not for my glory.
“Alice de Sturler used to investigate cold cases for the Champaign, Illinois, police department. Now, she gives victims of unsolved cases a Web presence—well over 100 victims so far—and also speaks out for defendants she thinks have been wrongfully convicted.
If readers are able to find and send her more information about a case she’s written about, she’ll file follow-up posts. Other posts contain interviews with evidence experts and crime novelists about their work.”
Your vote supports the victims in decades old unsolved missing persons and murder cases.
Your vote means that we have not forgotten these victims and that we are determined to keep them alive online. Because if we do that one day their case may show up in the news feed of someone with answers or it will show up in the news feed of a scientist who can think of a better way to test old evidence.
If you agree with the American Bar Association’s that I have done a good job giving the victims of unsolved homicide a better digital footprint, please vote. Follow the link and register (they keep track that you only vote once for the same blog). Then go to the criminal justice section and scroll down till you see my blog.
