Though they have things in common with their styles of writing, there are also some differences that they have. Edgar Allen Poe will always be remembered for his writings and how he was different in how he wrote compared to other authors . His writings are on the creepy side than Bradbury's writings. This can be in “the Tell Tale Heart” where the narrator is watching the
By using logic and reasoning, Mr. Carpenter discovers the reason why Sondra almost got murdered twice. The alexandrite locket Sondra took from Rosalie after she was murdered contained a picture that “looks like Rosalie” and was assumed to be Rosalie’s mother which was more than enough evidence for Mr. Carpenter and his team to search for the missing evidence to solve the mystery. Tracing back from previous evidence, Mr. Carpenter concludes that Eliot Kendall is the person who is responsible for all the murders. By using Edgar Allan Poe’s device, Mr. Carpenter reveals to the audience who the murderer
In answering the question, the theme that I will be discussing is that of premature burial in the short stories of Edgar Allan Poe. Premature burial is a theme that appears in a number of Poe 's stories such as Berenice, The Fall of the House of Usher, Ligeia and, of course, The Premature Burial. As Wolf says, "Poe must have been virtually obsessed with the idea of being buried alive" (289). The first of Poe 's stories I will discuss with reference to this theme is The Fall of the House of Usher. In this short story the narrator has been asked by letter to visit the home of a childhood friend, Roderick Usher, who has taken unwell, overcome by a strange illness however upon his arrival the narrator finds that there is a perfectly good explanation for his friend 's current state, " much of the peculiar gloom which thus afflicted him could be traced to a more natural and far more palpable origin—to the severe and long-continued illness—indeed to the evidently approaching dissolution—of a tenderly beloved sister" (Poe).
Later on in life, Poe had served in the military and at that point he started writing poems. After Poe was honorably discharged from the military, he married his 12 year old cousin who died shortly of tuberculosis. These events heavily contributed to his writing style by giving events to base stories as well as a viewpoint on the world. Overall, Edgar Allan Poe’s twisted and ominous writing style focuses on using physical imagery and connotative syntax to show imagery. Through Poe’s short stories and poems, Edgar Allan Poe visual and metaphorical imagery to illustrate the theme of revenge and death.
On October 8,1934 Hauptmann is indicted for murder and his trial began in January 3,1935. The case used circumstanul evidance. A wood expert confirmed the markings on the wood board that was used in the kidnap ladder matched those of Hauptmann’s tools in his garage.

Experts testifed that Hauptmann wrote the ransom notes his handwriting samples matched.
He later married his cousin, Virginia, who passed away at a young age. Following his wife’s death Poe became a drug addict and alcoholic. Each of these events impacted Poe’s career. One of poe’s inspirations for his writing was his grief. ‘’For the heart whose woes are legion’’.
According to statistics, 92 percent of kids who are murdered at their house are killed by someone in their family (Newton, The Encyclopedia of Unsolved Crimes, 313). This suggests the same for JonBenet’s death. When police arrived at the Ramsey home to investigate, the noticed the “peculiarities in the behavior of the grieving parents” and the fact that Patsy had on full makeup and her hair was nicely done (Newton 313). After further investigation of the evidence, the detectives uncovered that the ransom note was written with a pen and paper from Patsy Ramsey’s home office. Oddly enough, the strange amount of money that was demanded in the ransom was identical to John Ramsey’s bonus check (young jonbenet) The next pieces of the theory account to JonBenet’s 9 year old brother, Burke.
It is said that the investigation into Mary’s murder was very sloppy. The police left untested bloody fingerprints that were on the door and on Mary’s jacket. The police came up with a theory in which Mary was murdered in a workroom near Frank’s office. Although the police first focused their attention on the nightwatchman Lee the coroner’s work began to make the police think that it was Frank who was the true
Murder, the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another. Premeditated means that the killing of the person was planned out, this helps support that Adnan Syed is not guilty. In 1999 an eighteen year old girl named Hae Min Lee went missing from Baltimore, Maryland. Her ex boyfriend Adnan Syed was accused of murdering her and disposing her body in Leakin park. The problem is that all the evidence used to persecute Adnan does not add up to make a strong case.
Three murder case studies will be presented and compare here: Marian Bates, Martha Moxley, and Elizabeth Short. Marian Bates was a 64 year old Nottingham Jeweler who was murdered in front of her husband, Victor Bates, and children.

On September 19, 1934, Bruno Hauptmann was arrested and tried for murder on January 2, 1935. In the book “The Case Never Dies”, Gardner states that “there was insufficient evidence to convict him [Bruno]” (Gardner 1) of first degree murder. There were many witnessed that claimed Bruno gave them “ransomed bills” (Schwartz 3) at many businesses. The jury did not believe him when he took the stand and denied any involvement in the kidnapping. Bruno Richard Hauptmann was “put to death in the electric chair” (Crime Museum 2) on April 3, 1936.
In 1835 I became the editor for the Southern Literary Messenger in Richmond. I was known mostly for my harsh critic. I married Virginia while she was only the age of thirteen, we did not have any children but she died at the age of 24. She died of the wretched disease that stole my mother and brother away from me. After her death I began to write more poems and short stories, like “the Tale-Tell heart”, “The Raven”, and “the Masque of The Red Death”.
