Diane Newton King had said to her mother that she needed alone time with Brad. It was speculated that Diane was going to leave Brad and take the children with her. “She [Freida Newton, Diane’s mother] was afraid of what she might say about the man her daughter married. She thought Diane wanted to confide in her about her crumbling marriage, but she was afraid of what that might start” (P. 520 M). Diane was with her mother, trying to bring up the subject but not knowing how, so instead they ignored it and watched television. Even if Brad had not murdered Diane, Diane collected enough memories of lacking love and fatherhood expressed by Brad King and would have not stayed in that marriage. Diane may have worried about her image and what it would
Merriweather Lewis was a national hero. He was governor of the Louisiana Territory, and was renowned by many for exploring the Louisiana Territory with Clark. Lewis was on his way to Washington to deliver possibly classified information, when he stopped at an inn. There were two gunshots heard, and Lewis was found dead, supposedly having committed suicide.

Think about how often people get arrested and how often trials are held every year, let alone everyday. Oftentimes, innocent people are accused and charged for a crime that wasn’t there fault. This was the case for Adnan Syed, an innocent guy who was put in jail for a murder case. On January 13, 1999, Hae Min Lee was murdered at the age of 17. The evidence for this case was very unexplainable, but of course, the state went after Hae’s ex-boyfriend Adnan who really had nothing to do with the murder. Things that prove Adnan’s innocence are the breakup between him and Hae, how Adnan thought about and his feelings towards Hae, how the times and stories told with others didn’t suit well, and his alibi. Additionally, his DNA didn’t match with items found near Hae and her autopsy and medical evidence didn’ match the stories told by Jay, inaccurate stories that the state relied on. As has been noted, the past relationship and breakup had a big part in Adnan’s conviction, however according to many people, this doesn’t add up.

In 1998, Dr. Linda Reynolds of the Brooke Surgery in Hyde reached to John Pollard, who was the coroner for the South Manchester District, about Dr. Harold Shipman’s high rate of deaths of all of his patients. This was brought to the police attention and the police did not pay so much attention to it, assigning some of the newer police officers, which of course had little experience in being a police officer. These assigned police officers were unable to find enough evidence to charge Dr. Harold Shipman. Shipman’s investigation was then dropped and that same year Shipman killed 3 more people, with last victim being Kathleen Grundy, whose death certificate was recorded by Shipman stating that the cause of death was “old age.” Angela Woodruff, Kathleen Grundy’s daughter became concern of what could have really happened to her mother when solicitor Brian Burgess informed her that a will has been made by Kathleen, excluding her and her children, leaving most of the money to Harold Shipman. Once Woodruff reported this, Kathleen’s body was dug out and examined, containing traces of diamorphine. Shipman was then arrested on September 7th 1998. The police then did some more investigation of deaths Shipman has certified and created a list of 15 specimen cases. All of the 15 specimen had the same things in common which were lethal doses of diamorphine, signing patients’ death certificates, and falsifying medical records. With these many trials and many more that were brought to court
