Posting: Crime Wire Tuesday NIght

Donna Pendegast  is a dynamic guest and worth tuning in!









You can hear Crime Wire Tuesdays at 7 p.m. Eastern.
Please visit our Crime Wire Website.
Together we can make a difference.
Yes, a new look, a new host, but the same quality show!
Tuesday, June 4, Kim Kolton welcomes Donna Pendergast, high profile homicide prosecutor, to the show to discuss the latest developments in the Susan Cox Powell case. What went wrong? Should investigators have made some of the sealed evidence public? Now that West Valley Police Department, Utah has suspended the investigation evidence has been released to the public, including a hand written will and video made by Susan Cox Powell before she went missing in December, 2009. Would this evidence have helped in saving her children from being incinerated along with their father, Josh Powell?

Susan Cox Powell is still missing and her family is conducting new searches in areas they feel Josh Powell and his brother may have dumped her remains.

The original host of Crime Wire, Dennis Griffin, stepped down from his post on May 7, 2013 to pursue exciting, enterprising adventures, passing the torch to his right hand woman, Kim Kolton. As Research Director for Crime Wire, Kim has been a part of the radio show since the beginning, the one who looks into potential guests and cases to highlight on the show, the front runner and scout.

Of course, with all new things comes change! While Kim Kolton will continue with integrity to host the weekly show, offering listeners the chance to hear nationally known guests discuss cases where families are seeking justice, Kim will bring her own unique style.
Crime Wire is privileged to have a roster of consultants and on future shows listeners will have the chance to hear from experts like Karen Storsteen, Donna Pendergast, Sheryl McCollum, Holly Hughes, Peter Hyatt, Monica Caison, and several more all bringing aboard their expertise and assistance to help bring cases to the forefront.
Be sure to tune into the show each week for intelligent discussion about all things crime!

That is the million dollar question.

It seems to me more often these days things that should have helped or things that should have brought a conviction, didnt.

This is giving these evil criminals confidence. Why not. If they can look at all these "unsolved" cases... they have to think they can also get away with it.

Its disturbing.

LE needs to step it up! So many cases right now so clearly point to the cirminal yet nothing happens.


Peter - You and Mark Mclish need to be more involved with LE. They need to be trained in this. And held more accountable.

The media I think is also another group that needs training in this. I would love to see more of these guilty people get caught on tape.

These victims need justice.

Shelly,

I appreciate your affirmation of analysis.

like in most any field, those working must seek help and also like in every field, there are those who won't, no matter what.

I'm sure Mark has found this to be the case too, yet there are also those who do seek help and can prosper because of it.

Hi y'all!! I do not see anywhere to post this & I just would like some feedback from those of you who are interested. Is this mom telling the truth? Or is there more to this story?
http://www.katu.com/news/local/Determined-mother-fights-of-man-kidnapping-her-3-year-old-son-209993151.html#comments

WHITE CENTER, Wash. - A determined mother fought off a masked kidnapper who tried to snatch her 3-year-old son as he played in their yard Sunday night, the King County Sheriff's Office says.

The drama unfolded in the 10400 block of 3rd Avenue SW just before 6 p.m. The family had just arrived home from an outing and was preparing to barbecue. The mom, Melissa Hines, was outside and her 3-year-old son was playing nearby.

Suddenly Hines felt someone brush by her and she saw a man run around the back of her house with her child under his arm.

"The guy had him in his hands, and he brushed up kind of behind me, and I saw that he had my son in his arms," she remembers.

She gave chase and the kidnapper tripped and fell, dropping the child. A fight ensued between the mom and the attacker and the mom said she eventually laid on the ground on top of her son to protect him from the man.

The kidnapper kicked and punched the woman repeatedly in the head and body.

"When he kicked me, I lost the wind in me," she said. "I felt like I was kind of going out because I couldn't fight any more, because I fought him for a while. I kicked and punched him."

The man then ran away over the backyard fence.

"We're always telling the kids got to make sure the gates are latched, are closed, and need to stay in the yard, stay in the yard," Hines said. "And this guy was inside our yard, which makes it really scary."

The kidnapper is described as tall and “lanky” and was wearing a black ski mask, black clothing and black gloves. The age or race of the attacker is not known but the mom believes the suspect was a man due to the grunting noises he made during the struggle.

The boy was not injured but the mom received a black eye and bruises from the fight.

A police dog track and search of the area was unsuccessful.

Looking forward to your comments.

Karen, this is my amateur attempt. :)

"The guy had him in his hands, and he brushed up kind of behind me, and I saw that he had my son in his arms," she remembers.

"The guy" Why wouldn't she call him the kidnapper rather than "the guy". Guy sounds too non-threatening.
"I saw.." Extra words. How else would she know the "guy" had her son unless she saw him?
"had him in his hands."
She uses extra words. The man had her son. That should stand alone. Why would she add the extra words "in his hands? If it was a 3 year old he would have him in his arms not his hands anyway.

"he brushed up kind of behind me"
Brushed up sounds gentle. I would expect him to have bumped into her.
"kind of" is minimizing and makes it unreliable.

"When he kicked me, I lost the wind in me," she said. "I felt like I was kind of going out because I couldn't fight any more, because I fought him for a while. Then she tells us she kicked and punched him, out of the sequence of events, assuming she was too weak after fighting him and having the wind kicked out of her.

She again uses "kind of" making it unreliable.
She seems to be telling the events out of order. She tells that she had the wind kicked out of her then she tells that she "felt like", not that she was, "kind of" going out.
Because would be flagged. She used it twice in one sentence.

The rest of the story is in the reporter's words but a man all dressed in black coming into her yard with her there sounds suspicious. It would have to have been planned for him to dress that way. Surely he could have found an easier situation if he was a planner.

I'm not saying I think she is lying or not. But I can see why you would see some red flags and I imagine LE did some follow up questions.

My mistake. She did say the man had her son in his arms, not in his hands as I wrote.

Karen T said...

Thank you anon. I get that uneasy feeling that there is more to this story. Much like the story of the woman who claimed an attacker threw acid in her face.

I agree she seems to minimize the situation. "Brushed up kinda behind me:. My thought was "kinda behind me?" Either he was or was not behind her. YARD is mentioned 3 times. "Stay in the Yard" was twice. What is sensitive about the yard? That fact that she staged this in the yard?

Wondering...

The Susan Powell case broke my heart. How those boys died was beyond sad. It was tragic. I feel those boys deaths could have been avoided if the DA had just had the b@lls to go for it. No, they wanted the slam dunk. they wanted Susan, too.

IMO they had enough circumstantial evidence to go to trial. jmo

Jay said...

It smells of "acid" and "Ninja", combination of lies used in some recent cases. This woman has no imagination of her own. Is her yard so small or was that "guy" blind that he "kinda brushed behind her"? Criminals who steal children don't fight with parent over it, also he dropped the child already and he was seen -he would run. Is she divorced or to be divorced and want to get child's father into trouble? Or is it possible that her ex is that stupid? This is not end of the story.

Peter,

I am happy to see that you are covering Susan Cox's case !

I sure hope that she is found so that Mr. and Mrs. Cox can have some sort of closure -- even though I am sure they never will -- but at lease it would something for them as they have suffered far too much!

And that monster Steve Powell will be getting out soon -- what a DISGRACE to let him out of jail !

Oh, one more thing : Tomorrow will be 3 YEARS that KYRON HORMAN has been "missing."

Please keep Kyron in your thoughts and prayers !

Thank You.

"When he kicked me, I lost the wind in me," she said. "I felt like I was kind of going out because I couldn't fight any more, because I fought him for a while. I kicked and punched him."

This seems like very odd wording, so maybe it is a language issue. But putting that aside, there seems an awkwardness, a discounting, that does not match the power of the physical situation. Saying " I lost the wind in me" seems backwards, if it is happening because someone is kicking you. Like she is placing some blame upon herself, needlessly.

I wonder if it is a custody issue?

Anon 8:05 said...

Karen and Nic I too thought of the acid attack and almost wrote the same thing. Didn't we later learn that the victim knew the attacker and previous analysis had suggested just that?
I wonder if this is a setup or trial run for a planned "kidnapping". As you said, maybe a custody issue.

Apparent Suicide On Liverpool Owner's Yacht.

The Liverpool Football Club and Boston Red Sox owner was not on board when the man apparently took his life, police say.

A man has apparently killed himself on a yacht belonging to Liverpool and Boston Red Sox owner John W Henry, the baseball team has confirmed.

The Boston Red Sox said the man was a crew member on the vessel.

In a statement, the team said the man took his life while the yacht was docked at Rowes Wharf, near Boston's financial district.

The team said that fellow crew members were the only other people on board at the time.

The statement said that Mr Henry and members of the Red Sox are saddened by the death and send "deepest condolences to his family".

Police spokeswoman Cheryl Fiandaca said the man was 28 to 30 years old.

She said when firefighters and police arrived at the yacht, named Iroquois, they found the man in cardiac arrest, and attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

It was not clear who called the authorities, and police have not released the man's name or said how he died.

Mr Henry, the Red Sox's principal owner, has owned the club with two major partners since 2002 and is a former owner of the Florida Marlins.

He took over Liverpool Football Club from fellow Americans George Gillett and Tom Hicks in October 2010.

Forbes magazine reported in 2011 that Mr Henry had listed the 164ft yacht for sale for $28m (£18.2m).

@ Anonymous 1:08 A.M.,

You provided the following helpful warning; Be cautious when it comes to the online merchants that you think about buying from. If the online store is badly created, loaded with misspellings, and overall fishy, you should get your hard earned money someplace else. These are signs that anything is probably not proper regarding this retailer.

Obviously this is a situation where "takes one to know one" The phrasing in your post is wrong in many places. I wonder if you had to use translation software ( or a site that does it for you) or is it simply that English isn't your primary language?

Either way, thank you for that warning about staying away from online stores that are "overall fishy" - and thank you for providing us with a great example of the type of store you refer to. Obviously we should "bring" or "spend" our hard earned money somewhere else. There are too many signs that something isn't proper with you.
