Since its first release in November 2004 “World of Warcraft” has been known to millions of avid, casual, and non-gamers. The massively multiplayer online role-playing game, or MMORPG, was developed by Blizzard Entertainment following the popularity of earlier games in the Warcraft series, including the studio’s debut title, “Warcraft: Orcs & Humans” in 1994, according to History Computer.
Millions of gamers have found this online gaming community to be nothing short of a haven for almost two decades, spending their time pursuing greatness through in-game questlines and countless hours of play. By continuously releasing a ton of content both inside and outside of the game, Blizzard Entertainment has maintained its devoted fan base. Board games, backpacks, and other paraphernalia are available for “World of Warcraft,” while the full-length film “Warcraft” was produced in 2016.
The game is so beloved by players that many even dress up as their favorite characters for occasions like Blizzcon, the yearly convention put on by Blizzard Entertainment. However, there are events in Warcraft’s past that have a negative impact on the overall happiness the game has long provided. This includes one occurrence that brought about his death.
It’s not unusual for gamers to play for extended periods of time, especially while playing MMORPGs. Popular games with an open-world design, like “World of Warcraft,” is ideal for players to immerse themselves in to advance through the levels and add more in-game material. However, one player lost their life following a protracted game of “World of Warcraft.”
Wu Tai, 24, of Shanghai, China, had been playing the game for 19 straight hours when he passed out. He wasn’t feeling well, and those next to him noticed. According to a remark from Hsin Lo, who was standing next to Wu Tai, “I suddenly heard him groan, and when I turned to see what had occurred, he was very pale and looked uncomfortable.
Wu Tai, 24, of Shanghai, China, had been playing the game for 19 straight hours when he passed out. Hsin Lo, who was next to Wu Tai, was quoted by the Mirror as saying, “Those next to him realized that he wasn’t okay.” “When I turned to see what had happened, he was very pale and appeared to be in discomfort. I had heard him groan out of the blue. He was wiping his mouth with a hankie that was stained with blood.”
Emergency services were contacted by other cafe clients, but Wu passed out and they were unable to revive him (per the Mirror). The public is unaware of the official cause of death. However, there are other health issues that may be connected to sedentary behaviors, including playing video games for long periods of time.
Long periods of inactivity without any breaks can be harmful to human health. The Mayo Clinic lists increased blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and high blood sugar as possible adverse effects of routinely sitting for extended durations. Deep Vein Thrombosis is a different issue that can result from a sedentary lifestyle. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is described in another Mayo Clinic article as “occurring when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more of the deep veins in the body, typically in the legs.” The likelihood of these blood clots developing increases after periods of inactivity.
Wu Tai’s death after a 19-hour “World of Warcraft” session is a tragic method to urge people to get up from their seats, even though it is unclear what exactly caused it. There are drawbacks to being inactive for extended periods of time, whether it’s for work, travel, or to unlock the next accomplishment in a video game. The suggested daily activity for an average adult is 30 minutes (via Mayo Clinic). This implies that gamers can still play for extended periods of time and still find unending enjoyment in games like “World of Warcraft.”
But with the cause of death never being fully released there are theories that he may have been poisoned at the cafe. Maybe someone in the WOW world was out to get him? What are your thoughts?
Eleni Kassa is still missing. Detectives are actively searching for her. The tag on the Dodge Charger she could possibly be traveling in was run in Ohio, but it wasn’t from a traffic stop. Kassa’s phone and personal car were still at her Murfreesboro apartment when detectives checked on Friday. Eleni Kassa, 31, was reported missing on Fri. Nov. 18 by her family who stated she failed to pick up her daughter from school.
Kassa has not been seen or heard from since the morning of Nov. 17. She could possibly be traveling in a black Dodge Charger tag number 7L87V2.
Kassa is listed in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database as missing.
If you see Kassa, or know where she is, please notify Det. Julia Cox with the Murfreesboro Police Department Criminal Investigations Division at (629)201-5514.
On Monday, police say a license plate belonging to the car she might be in was flagged in another state.
A young mother of one Eleni Kassa has not been seen by her family since Thursday November 17, 2022. Eleni failed to pick up her daughter from school which is not a normal behavior for Elani. Her family became worried when Eleni did not pick up her phone and have since contacted the police.
Eleni is a responsible mother, supportive sister and loving aunt and we see no other reason but to suspect anything else but foul play.
“Since I was six, she was my responsibility, so I feel like I’m failing her right now,” Micky Ghirmay said.
The county police are involved, however as days, hours and minutes pass by we want to make sure we are using all resources available to find our sister. We are asking for your support in raising funds to hire a private investigator in hopes to increase our chances of finding our dear sister before any harm comes to her.
We appreciate your kindness,
“For her to go missing like that is very not normal,” Ghirmay said.
Eleni’s family says they became worried when she didn’t pick her daughter up from school on Friday — something that’s very out of character for Eleni.
“Since I was six, she was my responsibility, so I feel like I’m failing her right now,” Micky Ghirmay said.
Ghirmay, her brother, says they were always in constant communication until Nov. 17 when Eleni vanished, leaving behind her cell phone and car at her Murfreesboro apartment.
“She’s a wonderful mother, she’s a wonderful sister and she’s just everybody’s favorite person,” Ghirmay said.
The 31-year-old and her brother traveled to the United States in the early 2000s after their parents passed away..
“When I was six, my mother and father died. Eleni was three years old at the time, so I remember holding her hand, telling her our mother would come back,” Ghirmay said.
Now, all these years later, he feels as if it’s the same story. “So now I’m holding my niece trying to distract her out of those,” Ghirmay said.
Tonita Michelle Brooks last contacted a family member on August 26, 2019, to let them know she was doing well. On September 23, 2019, she was seen in a county building in downtown Durham, North Carolina. A family member filed a missing person report on October 25, 2019, after they had not heard from her in two months, and she usually would check in every week. Brooks could usually be found on Holloway Street or Liberty Street in Durham, North Carolina. The Durham Police Department is asking for assistance locating Brooks or obtaining details regarding her disappearance.
onita lived a transient lifestyle staying at the homeless shelter in Durham and various homes but she kept in touch with her family and children on a regular basis and they often saw her walking on Holloway Street. Tonita’s family describes her as a free spirit and a sweetheart commenting “she’ll meet you and you’ll think you knew her forever.” Tonita’s family reported her missing on October 25 after noting they had not seen or heard from her in weeks which was uncharacteristic of her.
Tonita’s brothers began searching for her in the surrounding area of Holloway Street where she frequently walked in the area between north Alston Avenue and Raynor Street but no one recalled seeing her.
Tonita’s brother, Michael Brooks, described his sister as having the “mind frame of a preteen” with a childlike, trusting disposition commenting that “she would recognize danger, but she wouldn’t know how close she actually is to being hurt.” Tonita’s three children lived with Michael at the time of her disappearance and his sister’s disappearance worries him to the point of not sleeping well. Tonita’s other sibling, Lewis Brooks, thinks his sister has been harmed because “I know if she was around and knew we were looking for her, she wouldn’t put us through that.”
Brooks has distinct crippling of her left hand, a left leg limp, and a scar on the front of her stomach.
One of her twin daughters, Mary Brooks cried while talking about her mother.
“I love her you know; I just want to see where she’s at,” Mary said.
No matter where Tonita was, she called her grandmother daily. But she had not in a while and when her grandmother passed away and even Tonita’s son died unexpectedly, she did not attend the funeral.
She is so well known, even Corporal Green of the Durham Police Department recognizes her.
“I would actually see her myself going to and from work,” Cpl. Green said. “I travel using Liberty Street, and also Holloway Street, so I would see her a few times a week.”
That makes the family incredibly nervous.
“My grandmother said she talked to Tonita all the time. Before she passed, that’s all she worried about… where is Tonita? Because she missed those phone calls,” brother Lewis Brooks said.
If she was not at Long Meadow Park visiting with friends, she would have been in the downtown area.
In fact, that is the last place she was seen in Sept. of 2019.
After two months of hoping she’d come home, her family filed a police report.
Angela Taylor asked Cpl. Green, “Have they heard anything?”
“Nobody has a clue other than terrible rumors that are being spread,” Cpl. Green said.
We heard those same rumors at the park when we showed up to interview Cpl. Green.
People in the park said they heard that Brooks was found dead.
Cpl Green said there is no truth to them.
“She is still a missing person. There is no evidence to say otherwise,” Cpl. Green said.
Brooks is a small woman, described as just 5 feet, 3 inches, and 110 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes.
Jeffrey Stinnett was last seen by his mother on January 15, 1978, but was not reported missing until April 19, 1978, after his housemate called to say Jeff had been missing for approximately seven days. Jeff’s personal belongings were found still in his apartment. Prior to his disappearance, Jeffrey had quit his job and may have been experimenting with LSD. Jeff played tennis in high school, wrote poetry, played Dungeons & Dragons, and was interested in the French language.
Stinnett has an elongated face/skull and a small space between his two front teeth. He wore a homemade leather belt with flowers and the name “Jeff” on it. He would be 61 years old now.
A woman has been detained by police in southwest Idaho in relation to the disappearance of a 5-year-old kid who vanished more than a year ago.
According to CBS station KMTV, Fruitland Police Chief J.D. Huff stated that authorities think Sarah Wondra, 35, may have known about the child’s death. She faces a felony accusation of failing or delaying death notification.
No attorney for Wondra is indicated in court documents. She was supposed to appear in court for the first time on Monday in afternoon.
Michael Vaughan was last seen on July 27, 2021, in front of his home in Fruitland, an isolated community in southwest Idaho, some 50 miles northwest of Boise. Vaughan was last seen with black boxer briefs, sandals, and a light-blue Minecraft shirt, according to the Idaho State Police.
Months of searching by police and other law enforcement organizations turned up nothing. The young kid turned 6 on June 24, 2022.
On Saturday, searchers resumed their search and dug up a backyard belonging to a residence in Fruitland not far from Vaughan’s house using a tractor and specially trained cadaver dogs.
“We learned during the investigation that Michael Vaughan’s remains may still be out there somewhere. Thus, we were able to secure a search warrant “explained Huff on Saturday.
A reliable tip led police to the house, and Wondra was one of the residents, Huff told Boise television station KTVB on Monday.
We don’t think she is the only one who knows about this, and we’ll be looking for anyone who might be related, Huff said.
In search for Vaughan’s remains, investigators have excavated a significant portion of the backyard of the house. Huff stated that the entire yard will be dug up.
According to KMTV, Huff added, “This is tough work.” “We’ll need some time to complete this. However, we won’t give up. The information we received has us feeling reasonably assured.”
A TikTok video she posted on the social media site revealed that she had stuck Michael Vaughan’s missing person flyer, which featured several photos of him, to her kitchen refrigerator.
Fruitland Police Chief JD Huff told local news outlet KTVB that police received a “very credible tip” that led them to excavate the yard on Redwing Street, which is not far from Michael’s home on Southwest Ninth Street.
“During the course of the investigation we received information the remains of Michael Vaughan might be found [behind the house],” Huff said when the search began on Saturday. “As a result, we obtained a search warrant. We have not found anything yet, but we will continue to excavate in hopes of finding his remains.”
Huff said the couple that lives in the home where the search is being conducted does not own it, and to his knowledge, they have no connection to the Vaughan family.
“[Police] have a backhoe, they have canines, and they’re putting dirt into a dump truck and they’re going away, then they’re sifting through that dirt,” Lauren Matthias, the host of Hidden: A True Crime Podcast and a spokesperson for the Vaughan family told News Nation.
“They did go over to the Neal home, to Brandi’s home, and told them yesterday morning, ‘This is happening. We have a tip; we are looking for remains.'”
According to police, remains discovered in a landfill in Georgia are thought to belong to a toddler whose mother reported missing from his Savannah home in October.
Leilani Simon, the mother of the kid and the only suspect, in this case, was detained on suspicion of malicious murder, concealing a death, and false reporting/making false statements on Monday in Savannah, according to Chatham County Police Chief Jeffrey Hadley.
Millions of people have followed Quinton’s case ever since and have been waiting for answers, according to police writing.
In anticipation of a bond hearing set for Tuesday, the mother of the boy was being held in custody in Chatham County. If she has a lawyer is not immediately known.
Police tweeted that they don’t expect any additional arrests in this case. A multi-agency search for the boy began just hours after Simon reported her son missing, according to Hadley. FBI agents were in charge of the operation. View more on this story here
A judge in Indiana could make a decision on Tuesday over the public release of secret court records containing evidence that resulted in the arrest of a man in connection with the 2017 murders of two young girls.
Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, were killed; Richard Matthew Allen, 50, of Delphi, Indiana, was charged last month with two charges of murder; however, the court records were sealed at the request of the local prosecutor.
Since the start of the investigation into the double homicide in February 2017, state police have gradually provided more information. However, since Allen’s arrest on October 28, the general public and the media have demanded additional details. On Tuesday, those calls might be returned, giving authorities a clearer picture of the murders that have plagued the town of 3,000 people in northwest Indiana, where Allen lived and worked at a nearby CVS. The Associated Press is one of several news organizations that submitted a brief to the court on Monday pleading with Allen County Judge Fran Gull to unseal the probable cause affidavit and charge material. A hearing will be held on Tuesday in Delphi by Gull, who was appointed to the case after the Carroll County judge, where Delphi is located, recused himself.
The brief makes the following claims, among others: “To maintain government transparency and accountability—which is especially important in criminal issues” and “the public interest is best served by public access to a prosecutor’s reason for pursuing criminal charges.” WHAT HAVE OFFICIALS DISCLOSED SINCE AN INVESTIGATION STARTED? Authorities revealed Allen’s arrest and the fact that he resided in the same neighborhood as the girls’ bodies on October 31. On February 13, 2017, a relative let the girls out along a trail close to the Monon High Bridge, just outside of Delphi, Indiana, which is roughly 60 miles (97 kilometers) northwest of Indianapolis. They failed to show up at their pick-up location hours later, and the following day their remains were discovered in a rough area close to the route.
Police have never revealed how the two teenagers, known as Libby and Abby, died or the details of the evidence they gathered, despite the fact that their deaths were judged homicides. Police refused to comment on the circumstances behind Allen’s arrest at the Oct. 31 press conference, citing the sealed records and their ongoing investigation.
Investigators revealed two blurry images of a suspect strolling on the girls’ abandoned railroad bridge shortly after the killings, along with an audio clip of a man thought to be the suspect saying “down the hill.”
In July 2017 and again in April 2019 based on videos released that month showing a suspect walking across the Monon High Bridge, authorities also produced sketches of the alleged murderer. Libby’s cellphone provided the video and audio. She was lauded as a hero by the authorities for recording possibly important evidence.
Then, in December 2021, state police made the announcement that they were looking for information from those who had touched with someone who had been communicating with young girls online using a bogus online persona. State Police reported that detectives found
The profile “Anthony shots,” according to State Police, was used on Snapchat, Instagram, and other social media sites between 2016 and 2017.
In a letter to Carroll Circuit Court earlier this month, Allen explained that he and his wife are no longer able to work and requested public defenders for the case.
THE DOCUMENTS ARE SEALED, BUT WHY?
In “exceptional circumstances,” such as when allowing widespread access may benefit or harm the public, courts may suppress data, according to Indiana law. Such petitions must be made in public and backed up by “compelling evidence,” after which a judge can either grant or deny making the material available.
According to Novella Nedeff, a professor at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, revealing details about the unsolved case is like “walking on eggshells” because of the media attention it received and the nearly six-year delay between when the murders occurred and when Allen was apprehended.
At the request of Carroll County Prosecutor Nick McLeland, the affidavit and charges linked to Allen’s arrest were placed under court seal.
The AP left interview requests with McLeland, but he did not respond.
McLeland referred to Allen’s arrest as “a step in the right way” at the news conference on October 31. He added that the purpose of sealing the data was to “safeguard the case’s integrity.”
“While all cases are important, the nature of this case has some extra scrutiny with it, and so we — my office, me — felt it was important to seal those records,” McLeland said.
WHAT CAN BE ARRANGED FOR TUESDAY?
The Cold Case Investigative Research Institute’s founder and director, Sheryl McCullom, a crime scene investigator, stated that sealing the papers is a “viable option” likely to protect a small town where the community members know each other. McCullom, a cold case analyst who has featured on television, said she expects the documents could be opened after the hearing and that it is uncertain how the judge would rule.
“probably, at this point, the right thing.”
“Part of going to work is courts are supposed to be public,” she said. “That’s for a reason. Everybody’s held accountable. It’s gotta be, doors open. Let people in. And I just think that’s probably, again, at this point, you know, the right call.”
Nedeff said families could be “very supportive of the investigators and being highly motivated not to jeopardize the investigation, even if it means not knowing things that they’d like to know.”
Grandmother of Libby, Becky Patty, posted a link to a petition to keep the documents confidential on Facebook. There are nearly 41,000 signatures on the petition.
Patty expressed worry that if the information was released, the news media and social media users would “broadcast it all over the world.” “We have seen throughout the last five and a half years the many innocent people that have had their lives turned upside down, pictures splattered all over, and accusations thrown out with no evidence to back them,” she wrote. “While they move on with no consideration to the damage they have done – those innocent people are left picking up the pieces and trying to move on with their lives.”
WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS IN THE INVESTIGATION, AND TRIAL?
At the Oct. 31 news conference, Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said the investigation was “far from complete” and if any other people “had any involvement in these murders in any way, that person or persons will be held accountable.”
True-crime enthusiasts have closely followed the case over the years and have put forth many theories. Carter pleaded with people to
“subjectively interpret” the case while officers continue to gather information.
“If you choose to be critical of our silence be critical of me, not the front line,” he said.
In her Facebook post urging the records to stay confidential, Becky Patty supported McLeland and emphasized the necessity for an impartial jury in the March trial.
“I understand people want to know – and they will know – in time,” she wrote.
Consequently, there has been much discussion about the individual recently. Richard Allen, who according to all accounts entered the Delphi probe relatively early on, nevertheless, appeared to be a bit more reserved than Beyond suspicion, a person who, by all accounts, approached a conservation officer soon after the bodies were discovered and asserted, “Yes, I was there that day. I was on the bridge that day. No, I didn’t see the girls, but I was most definitely in the area. I actually matched the description of the man seen in the video in front of you. He was a short man, perhaps a middle-aged White person who had a gun.
White How did things go so wrong here and does this case have some similarities to a case from this country, the summer murders and Ian Huntley? First, let’s concentrate on the individual who was seen walking over the dangerous bridge without handrails with their hands in their pockets. He appeared unconcerned about doing so. He also appeared to have done it before.
Robert Allen I’ve heard a lot of talk about this being a brazen, self-assured person who may even be used to manipulating law enforcement, but do we really have enough information at this point to draw those kinds of assumptions that we’ve seen spoken about? Once more a potential serial killer I’m not here to confirm or rule out that possibility, but I believe it is important to consider all possibilities in this case. Could it be that Richard Allen was merely crossing the bridge that day and panicked because he thought someone, perhaps even someone he knew, had seen him? We don’t really know the individual’s mental state at the time, and we can’t be sure if this was a preconceived notion.
In regards to Richard Allen approaching this conservation officer, by all accounts, he said yes I was on the bridge no I didn’t see the girls, and he was subsequently overlooked or suspicion was removed from Richard Allen after this point. However, what we don’t know is if there was any follow-up by law enforcement. I’m you know I’m a master manipulator I’ll be able to get through any interview that they throw at me.
We don’t currently know whether Richard Allen had any friends or coworkers who claimed to have been present when these murders were committed; however, I think we can all agree that something very wrong occurred between the time Richard Allen first claimed to have been present at the crime scene and his subsequent arrest in 2022. However, one of the features of this inquiry that does perplex me is that it appeared in 2019 during the press conference conducted by Doug Carter that they were on the right track at that point because this was a local person who they may have spoken to or interviewed family members of. It appeared at the time that they were on the right track, but then in 2020 we have Keegan Klein’s pursuit, the interview with Keegan Klein, and the detectives really seem adamant that there is some kind of link between the Anthony shots profile Keegan Klein and the perpetrator of these murders.
So it appears from an outsider looking in, which is exactly what all of us are doing at this time. He has come forward to law enforcement today; whether it was the day of the killings or even the day following, we don’t know, but I was on the bridge that day. He has been ignored or cleared, whatever you want to refer to it, and they have since moved on to other avenues. Ron Logan Keegan Klein but in between that, we have that 2019 press conference where they claim to have interviewed this man; they say he’s a local man who is familiar with the area; they say he’s hiding in plain sight; do you mean, two miles away from the bridge; do you mean, someone who has actually come forward to you and said that he was there that day because to me, you could connect that and say yes, that’s what he was. referring to but from that point on, we move on to Keegan Klein, as I mention in Anthony Scott’s profile, the Sea Sam ring, and the deeper connections.
Now that we’ve almost come full circle again and are back to Richard Allen, the resident of Delphi, for me personally, one of the more interesting words in that Wish TV article regarding Richard Allen coming forward to that conservation officer is the usage of the word unfounded. The report was deemed unfounded now. Did they think that someone was simply, as I said, inserting themselves into this investigation for the sake of popularity? Considering how small the community is, it’s not out of the question for a local to come forward and put himself in the spotlight. I was there, but I didn’t see the girls; however, I was there Christ, you know God must have just missed them; you know that’s not out of the question for so.
God must have simply overlooked them. You know that’s not beyond the realms of possibility for someone to do that what I would like to draw your attention to right now is a brief video of a man named Ian Huntley who also interfered with a police investigation and participated in a search party when looking for two missing girls from abroad. It was Britain’s biggest Manhunt ever, with hundreds of police officers and volunteers concentrating on the peaceful village of Soham in Cambridgeshire. Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman, both 10 years old, had disappeared on their way to the neighborhood sweet shop, according to Ian Huntley, the college’s caretaker, who was reportedly the last person to see the children to be in good spirits.
Ian Hundley had placed himself at the center of the search for Holly and Jessica, but what did his interviews show our experts who watched, listened, and analyzed it starts his sentence with the girls which sounds a little bit familiar he realizes that AMD backs off and says well I don’t know the girls the girl so that false start is showing us that he’s trying to manage an impression he’s also trying to pose a look of sadness or concern with his eye.
This is what happens when you try to act concerned when you’re actually unhappy, as seen by your perfectly matching eyebrows. really upbeat and chatty Indicator one of deception is the fact that he’s describing the girls as chatty and happy while neglecting to remove the sad expression from his face. Indicator two is the slight head shake he uses to counteract these affirmative statements. In addition, we can see gestural leakage from his shoulder, which is raising a few millimeters on his right side and contradicting the positive affirmations he’s making.
I feel fine. that is the top that is the second His right arm is moving very slightly. I don’t know why, but if I’m saying something positive and I want you to trust me, and it leaks from one or both shoulders and it’s small, then there is a contradiction his body is questioning that statement is a contradiction, so there is a very slight movement of his right-hand shoulder. To give you some background on Delphi and perhaps a comparison, Ian Huntley was another person who interfered with a police investigation. He was a member of the search team looking for the two missing girls.
He even went so far as to claim that he was the last person to see them before they vanished. One significant difference between this case from the UK and that of the Delphi murders is that police were able to crack this case and even sentence Ian Huntley within two years. If you will, Soham has around 11,000 residents, making it much larger than Delphi. This case back when it happened was absolutely huge in this country with massive news coverage and massive media attention throughout the country up and down the country. The Alibi said were on to Ian Huntley at a fairly early stage to recover garments, and from a pretty early point, they had identified Ian Huntley.
I’ll just read a brief passage from Wikipedia that clarifies this in more detail after having participated in the hunt for the missing children. Huntley frequently questioned police officers about their investigations, including how long DNA evidence could last before deteriorating. On August 16, 2012, 12 days after the children went missing, one of these officers noticed three vertical scratches on Huntley’s left jaw, each measuring about three centimeters. Huntley claimed that his dog had just recently caused the scratches. Police questioned Huntley and Carr first; curiously, they were on Ian Hundley rather quickly as I recall.
The remains of these two poor girls hadn’t been retrieved or even found when he was brought in for interrogation previously, but in the Adelphi Murders, we had audio and video of the murderer speaking in a community that is much smaller than Sohn. There are 11,000 people living in Solem; what is going on? I don’t want to hear that they have 50,000 or 70,000 tips; they are not stupid; they haven’t done anything illegal; they’ve just made a few mistakes. This is incredible; in fact, it should be classified as unbelievable. To use a term from this nation, how do we have a case with such a massive cock-up?
Where this crime occurred, there were almost two or three times as many people as there are now, and there were almost two or three times as many residents. Within 12 to 13 days of even discovering the bodies, the killer was apprehended, and within two years of his sentencing, they had already completed the trial. Nearly six years later, we are only now learning details about Someone who lived nearby. I wholeheartedly agree that using terms like “net” and sayings like “you know there have been failures in this investigation” would be harsh if Richard Allen lived on Mars or didn’t fit the description of the man crossing the bridge.
Given that they had all the necessary information at their disposal, how can we not view this as incompetent given that these people are professionals who supposedly devote their lives to being the best in their field? Obviously, there are many similarities between this case and the Delphi murders, and it shouldn’t have been beyond consideration that the killer may come forward and insert himself into this case as was shown in the case involving Ian Huntley. This is something that does happen from time to time—the perpetrators insert themselves—but I have no idea whether there’s more or something deeper going on here.
