“On behalf of the Herok Family:
I want to express the family’s most sincerest gratitude for the story you did on Sonia Carmen Herok-Stone. Without your patience with me and willingness to write her story, things may not have turned out the way they have.
You brought attention to her 1981 cold case murder in Carmel, California and the Police in California saw your story and acted on it. After over 40 years of her killer, Michael Scott Glazebrook, being able to live free, have a family, a job, a life… he has now been caught, prosecuted, convicted by a jury, and will hopefully spend the rest of his life in jail for what he did to Sonia.
You did an amazing job, and we are all eternally grateful!
Melanie Letsos – Sonia’s sister-in-law
“To take up a cause when to others there is none; to argue what to others is unarguable; to be a lone voice for a lone being…. against the condemnation of the whole… and to seek as one to change the verdict of a state (and ergo of all of us) is the most worthy cause I know.
For me it is a privilege, truly a privilege, to know you. Mean it. With what I see in my job, it is people like you who reaffirm my belief in the essential goodness of the human condition.”
“I worked with Alice on devising and directing an Amnesty International campaign regarding the application of the death penalty in the United States in the mid-1990s. She showed tremendous organizational skills during the 2-year project.
Alice possess a highly prized ability to work both independently and as part of a team. Her commitment to advancing the cause of human rights was crystal clear.”

“I will always be thankful to you for reviewing my book. You are the only one who offered to help me in all the years I’ve searched for help.
I would wonder in the past if I would ever find someone who would be interested in helping me tell what happened to my son Mike and my struggle with the law officials in the State of Maine. I knew they were wrong in the way they dealt with Mike’s murder and how they treated me while I tried to get justice for Mike. I was only one little person with no power to come against them.
I am very thankful to you.”

“Thank you for helping to shine the light on the injustice perpetrated on FL death row inmate Tommy Zeigler 34 years ago. I am extremely grateful for your careful investigation and diligent reporting of the true facts in this tragic case.”
“Alice played a pivotal role in my development as a blogger and media consultant. When I first started building my platform, Alice was one of the first people I met on social media.
Even though we were strangers, she helped me establish myself as an expert in the field of criminal investigation by teaching me the use of social media and blogging. With her help, I was able to launch my blog, website and social media platforms, which has allowed me to be discovered for print, radio and recently television.
I owe a lot of my success to Alice’s patience, kindness and expertise.”

“I am blown away by your reporting and how you have concisely and expertly outlined the points of contention in the Zeigler case. Points that will educate and no doubt shock many readers who visit your site.
Thank you so much for what you have done; not only for Tommy, but for so many whose voices are trapped by legal red tape and those who are in control of it!”

“Defrosting Cold Cases is a phenomenon. It has become something of a community within which lawyers, investigators, forensic experts, armchair sleuths and anyone else with a passion for criminal justice and crime detection can exchange ideas and share information.”
