Starting this Friday, March 9, 2012 on Investigation Discovery the movie “An Appointment With Death” will show you interviews with five death row inmates in Florida and Texas awaiting their execution. It is a four-part miniseries. More information is here.
If you liked the work from Ken Lang and are interested in 3D skull reconstructions, check out this article on Forensic Magazine. They discuss using a CT scan combined with computer modelling as opposed to clay as Ken does, to expedite the identification of John and Jane Does.
Thanks to John, I was alerted to a very interesting case and I cannot wait till our very own Sue Carney reads about it! The Wanda Beach Murders have some evidence but the current technology is not sufficient yet to analyze it! From Wikipedia: “The Wanda Beach Murders refers to the case of the unsolved murders of Marianne Schmidt and Christine Sharrock at Sydney’s Wanda Beach on 11 January 1965. Their partially buried bodies were discovered the next day.
The victims, both aged 15, were best friends and neighbours. The brutal nature of the slayings and the fact that the twin killings occurred on a deserted, windswept beach brought publicity to the case. It remains one of the most infamous unsolved Australian murder cases of the 1960s, perhaps second in notoriety only to the disappearance of the Beaumont children.”
More information is here. Since all children disappeared on a beach, John was wondering whether there might be a pattern here. Let us see what the DCC community thinks about this. Hat tip to John!
