Primarily, apart from the previously discussed issues regarding the evidence and technology used, the issues consisted of the fact that there was no body ever found, making it difficult to examine the exact circumstances of the crime and whether the crime occurred entirely, relying on a few bloodstains and unclear CCTV footage (as seen in Figure 3). In relation to this issue, another problem was the previously aforementioned heavy reliance on the eyewitness testimony of Joanne Lees. While crucial to the investigation, eyewitness testimonies may be subject to inconsistencies, memory lapses and potential bias, all of which were concerns during the trial. Finally, the high-profile nature of the case garnered widespread media attention. The extensive media coverage had the potential to influence public opinions which in turn may have impacted the trial

On April 26, 2017 members of the Metropolitan Police Department responded to United Medical Center to speak with the complainants Allen and Schatzman Complainant Allen reported to officers that she and Complainant Schatzman because of something that Complainant Allen posted on Facebook.

On April 27, 2017 your affiant along with Detective Abdalla interviewed both complainants Allen and Schatzman at the Sixth District Station.
Defendant has only made statements to ruin Coach Josephs’s reputation. Coach Josephs was the only coach cleared of any involvement in the scandal, but Defendant was not satisfied with the police investigation. Defendant was not satisfied with Coach Josephs’s offer to testify at Court. Defendant will never be satisfied because she wants Coach Joseph to pay for her son’s death, and she has proven that she is willing to make reckless false statements to make him pay. Every statement Defendant makes is targeted at damaging Coach Josephs’s reputation, which makes them
The legal guideline aims to remind psychologists about their primary obligations as well as rational “precautions to respect the confidentiality rights of those with whom they work or consult, recognizing that confidentiality may be established by law, institutional rules, or professional or scientific relationships.” Maintaining privacy and confidentiality of the defendant facilitate their openness assisting them to recall and relate “pertinent facts and events, including his motives and actions at the time of the offense, and be able to testify in his behalf and to challenge prosecution witnesses.”
I believe there should be a dedicated team of individuals who specialize in these cases, that don’t give up as new technology and evidence arises. Concluding this paper, we have considered the JonBenet case that occurred in 1996 and how it was closed and reopened. Keeping in mind that a third of all homicide cases go unsolved, statistically this is a big number considering the number of people living in the U.S.A. We see how important it is to not compromise any evidence in a crime scene it could very well dictate the results of solving the case. Because mistakes caused by the officers, or investigators at a crime scene such as tampering with evidence, flaws in the legal system, and departments giving up on cases of up to a year many go
As an observer, it has been noted multiple times that prosecutors seek to solve a case by any means necessary. But countless times it has been found that you also will use unreliable or faulty resources without having the proper evidence and right resources in order to make a closing statement. Your desperation to solve a case in a quick and timely matter is just proof that you will take anyone’s word before checking the validity and reliability of the first time informants often times taking note of his desperation and use this in order to seek entry way into a resolution. I stand before you today and acknowledge the weight you have on your shoulders to convict and solve a case.
As with any criminal case, there are always a number of issues pertaining the stages of the crime and also the media and the general public’s opinion of the case. Many of the issues and explicit actions of certain individuals that had happened during the Corryn Rayney case had affected the interpretation of the case in someway for both government workers and the general public. By analysing the issues of the case, it allows a much more detailed view on the case and how most of the issues are linked in one way or another. One of the issues regarding this case was where a police officer had been found attempting to pressure forensic pathologists to alter their case reports to align with their best interests.
Additionally, the media got into the investigation by asking questions about the events before the murder. The National Enquirer, for instance, took a different angle to investigate the case; however, by doing this, the media almost made it impossible for proper investigations to be held by the criminal justice system. Ogletree Jr. maintains that the press failed terribly by trying to assume what the lawyers or witnesses thought at different times of the trial, which was a fail (Ogletree). Consequently, there should be a level of protection from the media. Public figures should not have their cases aired or followed to prevent tampering of evidence or misconceptions.
The next ethical issue that might arise from the juvenile case study is respect to autonomy. The view of the minor about the treatment or rehabilitation might carry little weight.
