Carnival of the True Crime Blogs #72

This week's Carnival of the True Crime Blogs will begin in central England, in the historic city of Worcester. Neill from True Crime Blog UK writes about a horrific murder case from 1973 in his post David McGreavy: The Monster of Worcester.

Stephen from Crime Scene Blog has a happy update to a two-year-old kidnapping case: Jocelyn Reunited With Father.

Crime, Interrupted wrote about an online petition she found concerning "Autistic Retards." Her thoughts on those who would foment hatred and violence toward autistic people, or any other people, by way of internet petitions and "freedom of speech" can be read here: Intolerance In Our Society.

Home Sweet Home blogs about Domestic Violence, and has written about yet another woman who was loved to death because she felt sorry for her attacker: While he was away.

Bonnie from My Life of Crime has an update in the Raechale Elton murder trial:
Update: Raechale Elton murder *Jury recommends that Robert Cameron Houston be sentenced to life without parole*.

Lilo from Lost in Lima Ohio warns parents about the ever-present pedo freaks who love to ogle children and then fantasize about them to their internet friends- and provide tips on how & where best to do it: Well, You're Damn Right That Was Scary- At least for them.

Mark from The Malefactor's Register has another intriguing and well-written story about a twisted murderess in the early 20th century: Does This Black Dress Make Me Look Fat?

Imahologram from Criminal Conduct and Crimeblog.Us has the third installment of an historic murder case from 1940's Los Angeles: The Strange Case Of Chloe Davis; Part 3. If you haven't already, please read part 1 and part 2 at

Harding from T.O. Crime submits a story with long-awaited news in the murder case of Rebecca Middleton: Speaking for Rebecca - Bermuda Review Underway.

Finally, yet sadly, there is no dearth of information concerning the mass murders at Virginia Tech yesterday. As usual, crime bloggers (and bloggers in general) are ahead of the mainstream media with the goods. The True Crime Bloggers though, unlike certain talking heads, check their facts before broadcasting incorrect information as "fact" to the masses. Steve Huff from Crimeblog.Us is staying with this story: Campus Shooting at Virginia Tech, Massacre at Virginia Tech: The Victims, as are several others from the True Crime Blogroll:

¤ CrimeRant

¤ Crime Scene Blog

¤ Home Sweet Home

Whoa – I think I recognize that guy!! Yeah, I think I do… Isn’t that the dude who writes for Court TV’s Crime Library? You know, the one who’s totally over the top in love with Steve Huff??? Damn, I’m sure that’s him…

Love the Carnival...and the cover image by Lilo. Always so clever, you TC bloggers!

Great job Jules!

I'm forced to admit though, in true fashion of our mascot, the original design was stolen from Huff, and then "slightly fluffed" for publishing.

Steve Huff said...

Wow! That guy in the image is a wreck! Someone needs to call him a towtruck.

Capt. Fantastic said...

Thanks Lilo, I added Steve's props, LOL.

That's one of the pictures that was on a postcard sent to the media in the Renee Fox case out of Inyo County, CA. What is the story behind the image on the cover?
