The Axeman of New Orleans 1918-1919

Image
The murders had taken place over a hundred years ago but the Jazzman story remains one of the greatest mysteries and unsolved murder cases within the annals of American crime.They were a series of night slayings that were committed during a Post-War age of Jazz and new found optimism that were both dark and terrifying. It is a chilling story of terror during a seemingly golden time of boom where a New America had emerged but a night prowler was invading homes and creating night-time carnage and chaos. The Axeman’s modern status is one of mythological urban legend and the rumours and theories behind this killer range from the interesting to the downright farfetched but terrifyingly the Axeman was real – very real.There were four people brutally murdered and eight grievously injured by the Axeman. They were all New Orleans (and the neighbouring Gretna) residents, predominantly Italian-Americans and they were attacked within their own bedrooms by a “panel burglar”. The weapon of choice u…

THE MYSTERIOUS ELEPHANT KILLER IN BOTSWANA

THE MYSTERIOUS ELEPHANT KILLER IN BOTSWANA – ARE THE BOTSWANA GOVERNMENT POISONING THE ELEPHANTS?MEDIUM LINK Experts have warned about a mystery elephant killer which has left herds of elephants in Botswana “decimated”.





Speculation was initially aimed at poachers, but the tusks were not found to be missing from the carcasses and experts suggested that the sudden death was caused by either a disease or a virus. The rate and seemingly mass-graves of elephants is causing dramatic alarm for conservationists and hitting the Botswana economy.  The Elephant deaths began in May 2020 and occurred in the Okavango Delta over the next two months. Botswana is currently a home to a third of African Elephants; with the current population of elephants in a worrying decline. The “mass graves” of Elephants were first spotted when conservationists took a flight over the delta and then spotted 169 elephant carcasses over the next three hours. A month later the total deaths were at 350. Despite the Africa…

EVE STRATFORD & LYNNE WEEDON - THE HORRORS OF 1975

A MURDERED BUNNY & A FORGOTTEN SERIAL KILLER
EVE STRATFORD One case which had received notoriety in the UK was the murder of Eve Stratford (aged just 21), which was remarkably linked to the murder of Lynne Weedon (aged just 16) after thirty years.In 2004 the two killings were discovered to have been committed by the same perpetrator using DNA testing. And so, two murders across different parts of a sprawling London were established to have been a committed by a serial killer – who for forty years had been hiding in plain sight. Eve’s murder occurred on the 18th March 1975 while Lynne’s was almost six months after on the 10th September 1975 both occurring in suburban London. There was also potential links to a third murder of Lynda Farrow who was killed in her home in the January of that year with many similarities to the other two. The three murders were all in the Greater London area of Leyton, Hounslow and Chigwell. The double murders occurred in 1975 and it is chilling to think …

Three Billboards Around Baltimore, Maryland

https://www.justice4jody.com/ “I just feel like there’s somebody out there that knows something, and we just haven’t gotten to that person yet.” Jenny Carrieri – Jody’s twin sister.It has been 24 years since Jody LeCornu was murdered in her car in a Baltimore parking lot at 3 in the morning. The day was March 2nd 1996. Jody was 23 years old when she was unexpectedly shot in the back. The killer has not been found and the hunt for justice continues to this day. This unfortunately is a tale of police incompetence and the desperate sadness of a grieving twin. Three new billboards are now offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and they are going up across Baltimore to try to lead to more information before the case goes any colder. Jenny can claim inspiration for setting up the billboards from the Oscar winning film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri which itself was inspired by true events. Jenny has tragically suffered with insurmountable grief since the d…

Spanish Cold Case – The Atapeurca Mountains and The Invention of Murder

Image
Some 430,000 years ago in Northern Spain an assault was committed. The victim was a young person of Neanderthal descent. They received two lethal blows to the head above the left eye. They were made by the same weapon but from two different angles suggesting two deliberate strikes. The similar size and shape to the blow would indicate two successive strikes.Using a CSI method of analysing the wounds we can draw the conclusion that the victim was likely facing the assailant when they were attacked and that the victim would have been alive suggested by the oblique angles and smooth surfaces of the fracture. After the assault the victim’s body was thrown into a 43-foot vertical shaft and would not be discovered again until 1984 by modern man. The victim was known as Cranium 17. Archaeologists believe that the body was deliberately dumped in the gorge after death.Although there is little, we know about this “John Doe” or better yet “Juan Doe” what we can know is that they were a young adu…

JANET BROWN: NURSE BEATEN TO DEATH IN OWN HOME.Recent news reports – as of 10/04/2020Janet Brown’s death remains a mystery, much like the details of her life.Few people in the remote village where Janet lived knew her until one spring evening in 1995 when an intruder burst into her quiet farmhouse. Janet’s body was later found bound, naked and gagged. Twenty-five years later and Janet’s murder remains unsolved. DNA evidence has recently emerged; and we know that the assailant is a male. But despite testing against over 700 swabs, nobody has been linked as of yet.Janet Brown was a modest and quiet woman – with nothing special about her. This is not to demean her life or importance to those that loved her (including her three children and husband) but ultimately this could be true of any of us. In life we may be unremarkable and in death we may be the talk of the town; the sound and fury reserved for after our existence.It was an April evening of 1995 when Janet was murdered in her own …

The Torso in the River – Human Sacrifices in London

Image
DiscoveryIt was 4pm on the 21st September 2001.Under the bright lights of the famous Globe Theatre where Shakespeare produced some of his most gruesome and bloodiest plays, life would exceed the absurdities of drama – a mutilated torso had washed up from the river covered in a red cloth. Police investigators would discover it was a child’s torso (they named him Adam) and the ethnic origins were sub-Saharan African.Police initially linked the remains to a religious sacrifice and the African mythology of Muti-based ritualism.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MutiMuti reflects the idea of South African ritual killings for a kind of pseudo-scientific medicinal purposes. However; this would send the Metropolitan Police of London on a bit of a wild goose chase where they investigated heavily in South Africa and even had the help of Nelson Mandela; who made an international appeal for information. Gaining Mandela’s help was a major coup for the Met Police but may have covered up the embarrassmen…
