The reason my husband asked me about it was, years later after I had begun to date and finally married, I saw a news story about two robbers arrested not far from where we live. The report mentioned it was two men, dressed in black, who had robbed a home and tried to kill one of the owners. The reporter said the third man, who had worn a skull mask over his face, had never been caught. I had started panicking at this, and eventually told my husband all about what had happened. He knew my brother had died, and that it had been during an attempted robbery, but not much else.

The Declaration of Independence was written on July 2, 1776, but then approved by congress on July 4th 1776. The Declaration of Independence was written when the 13 colonies were no longer part of the British Empire and were now their own independent states. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” For me, the theory of Natural Rights, and equality in a government is a must. Because of natural rights, oppressive taxation, and equality, I have decided that I would sign the Declaration of Independence in 1776 if I were living in that time. Thomas Jefferson wrote that if the government doesn’t protect the rights of its citizens, then people have the right to form their own new government.
¨She came up with circumstantial links from her father to a string of unsolved murders across the United States, from the family home in Massachusetts to California¨ (Katz 191).

At the house he told authorities he masturbated on the body, skinned and dismembered it and threw the remains of the body in the trash. Dahmer’s killing spree would rapidly escalated nearly two months after the second homicide and would last for about three and half years before the police would finally catch him (Ewing,2006). According to Schwartz (1992), later in Dahmer’s confession he said, “he killed his victims to prevent them from leaving”.
