It really depends on the child and their capacity to recall and identify events and people. The most famous case I know where a child witness was the key witness was the Lester Street Murders in Memphis, TN. On March, 2008, Jessie Dotson went to 722 Lester Street, where his brother, Cecil, lived with his girlfriend and their children. Jessie killed four adults were multiple gunshot wounds, killed two children, ages 2 and 4, who were beaten and stabbed. Three other children, one just 2 months old, also were beaten and stabbed, but survived the attack.
2 Serial Killers and Ways of Killing Mrs.Stubbs-Mesumbe Business Law 1 Saul Martinez November 28,2016 For my term paper I am doing 2 serial killers that murdered people and even children. Those 2 serial killers are Arthur Shawcross and Ted Bundy. Arthur Shawcross admitted that he murdered 12 female prostitutes in New York. He also sexually assaulted a 10 year old boy and murdered him after luring him into the woods. He then raped and killed an eight year old girl, and was convicted of manslaughter.
Soon after he was released, he got arrested again for sexually fondling a 13 year old boy. He only managed to get a 5 year probation because he convinced the judge he needed therapy. Along with murder, Jeffrey was charged with necrophilia and cannibalism. He committed necrophilia on 3 victims; Raymond Smith. Errol Lindsey and Oliver Lacey.
The first murder Jeffrey Dahmer committed occurred right after his high school graduation in June of 1978. This happened when his parents were freshly divorced. His mother and brother fled and his father was away on business which left him all alone. Dahmer, who had been heavily drinking picked up a hitchhiker by the name of Steven Hicks. He took the nineteen-year-old to his family home where they each drank an excessive amount of alcohol.
Wuornos firmly believed that she had killed all of these men, especially Richard Mallory, out of self-defense. There was clearly a rage in her toward men, which could have something to do with her father being absent all of her life, her grandfather being an abusive alcoholic, and her getting raped and impregnated at the age of fourteen. “’There could well be a violent man in her past with whom she had such an experience, (and) under certain conditions years later she found a way to respond. In a way, Mallory had been the conduit for her rage,’ says psychologist Phyllis Chesler” (Bankston, 1996). She learned at a young age that she could earn money for having sex with men.
I was just cleaning up the place a bit.” Jack the Ripper, a serial killer infamous a hundred years before, influenced the method of operations of Peter Sutcliffe, a modern day serial killer. Peter Sutcliffe killed mostly prostitutes and a few that weren’t, he drove himself to kill thirteen women and attempting to murder seven others. Sutcliffe had previously used services of prostitutes in Leeds and Bradford (Cobb). His outbreak of violence towards them seems to have occurred because a prostitute conned
In my opinion from reading the conviction of Hiawatha Robinson case, I honestly think that he was guilty of the murder of his 8- year old daughter Hiawayi. The FBI and police had gathered so much information on Hiawatha that they could finally charge him of 1st degree murder of his daughter. The FBI had fingerprints, phone records, and even witnesses saying that Hiawatha was the last person to see his daughter alive. To murder your own daughter I think you have to be heartless and evil, especially a child he age of eight. Everyone expects Robinson to be sentenced to life in prison, meaning if he was eligible for parole he would get it after spending 24 years in prison first.
After reviewing the topics in this course I found In the Watch & Think assignment "Death by Fire," Todd Willingham is arrested, tried and convicted of the murders of his three daughters and sentenced to death. Reports from the neighbors in the documentary claimed Willingham was "a very mean man" and by the law enforcement investigator Jimmie Hensley (2010),"You got to count his actions before and after. You got to count his actions during the fire, and things like that that makes the whole story. Not just one little segment of it, its every bit of the story.” In my findings Todd was not given a fair trial simply because he was the classic product of “labeling theory”. Labeling theory defines deviant labeling is set into motion various, social
Although Charles Cullen was the serial killer, the hospitals where Cullen worked were also at fault. In 60 minutes, the interviewer stated that Charles Cullen was a suspect long before his arrest. “Charles Cullen was the main suspect for poisoning random bags of saline…if you talk to the investigators there they’ll tell you Cullen was our man, we knew he was dirty. They couldn’t prove anything. It’s all circumstantial” (60 minutes, 4:30).

Ronnie Kray shot and murdered George Cornell, a partner of the Richardsons, pioneers of an opponent posse, at the Blind Beggar bar in Whitechapel on 9 March 1966. Ronnie was savoring another bar when he learned of Cornell 's area. He ran there with his sibling 's driver John Dickson and his partner Ian Barrie yet murdered Cornell alone. There are varying intentions offered for the homicide: Cornell 's position as a pioneer of a contradicting group; Cornell was debilitating the Krays; he had already offended Kray; Cornell was thought to have a section in the homicide of Ronnie 's previous partner, Richard Hart. Ronnie Kray was at that point experiencing neurotic schizophrenia at the season of the executing.
A month ago, cops reacted to a local debate at the home of 48-year-old Randall Coffland. On Friday, March 10, they came back to a horrible scene. Coffland had killed his twin girls, submitted suicide, and shot his better half, intentionally abandoning her alive to "endure."

Albeit less normal than different sorts of homicides, they strike specific dread into individuals ' souls.
