However, prior to John DuPont’s murder trial people closest to DuPont stated that he had begun displaying signs of persecutory delusion, erratic and sometimes violent behavior that worsened after the death of his mother in 1988. DuPont was known to be eccentric with various interests including amassing a large gun collection, stamp collection, shell collection, and being a wrestling enthusiast. By the time of the murder he believed he was the Dalai Lama, Jesus, a Russian czar, and a CIA operative. In addition, his paranoia over the years resulted in Du Pont believing he was being spied on and even hired an excavation company to search for tunnels under his property. Furthermore, he installed razor wire in the walls to prevent the possibility of people hiding in his walls and went as far as believing there was eavesdropping devices in the billiard walls (John E. DuPont Trial: 1997-Trial, n.d.).
The Murder of JonBenét Ramsey Murder. Murder is the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another. JonBenét was executed by someone watching her every move up until that point. A six year old beauty pageant participant, murdered harshly in her home by someone preying upon her as if they were a lion. Maybe someone was in the state of jealousy and anger that they murdered her because they wanted what she had.
Like in the beginning of the book when they brought Jennifer Thompson in to see if she could identify the person that raped her she pick all of the clues that lead to Ronald Cotton and once she was dead set on him being the person that raped her, she did everything in her power to make sure that he was put in jail. Because in the book she said “Put a man in a cage with beasts and throw away the key, its usually not very long before the man is a beast himself”. Even when Ronald Cotton was in court and brought that guy that looked just like the picture that Jennifer Thompson drew, but had similar characteristics to Cotton. But since she was dead set on Ronald Cotton being the guy that raped her, she was oblivious to the fact that the other guy was the one who raped her
Although Towler testified that his only meeting with Stone was at the Happy Kup during breakfast, there was sufficient evidence for corpus delicti on the murder crime. There was overwhelming evidence to show that Stone had earlier beaten Stone and declared him a dead snitch. Additionally, when he was last seen, the deceased was in the company of Towler, the same man who had earlier beaten him and who had a motive to kill him. Although there was evidence that Stone could have died from other causes that were nor crime related, the introduction of evidence by the prosecution on criminal agency were sufficient to convict Towler. On the action of the district attorney seizing documents from Towler without a warrant or the consent of the defense counsel, the same cannot warrant the dismissal of a case or the watering down of evidence presented (Gardner & Anderson, 2009).
The women who were known to be killed by him are Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Polly Nichols, Catherine Eddowes, and Mary Jane Kelly (“Jack the Ripper”). His killing tactic started with choking the women, then using a knife to slash the throat. Also, they did not end with being stabbed, there was a possibility of his eating organs after cutting them out (“Jack the Ripper”). He was also known for sending
She had been stabbed 39 times in the throat, chest, and lower abdomen. It appeared that the wounds had been inflicted by a small knife-a pocket knife. The exception to this was a large violent through her chest that seemed to be inflicted by a large knife or bayonet. The stab wounds caused people to think she might have been connected to the Jack-the-Ripper murders as well, but the police determined that the wounds weren’t similar enough. The Canonical Five are considered to be the work of one killer: Jack the Ripper.
He was accused by Bob Ewell because his daughter told him the Tom Robinson was the one who raped her. Tom Robinson probably new already that he was going to lose the trial because most people would believe a white folk then a black person. Most people that were black and were accused of rape or murder were almost always going to be lynched.
However, Montresor never pointed out evidence of the injuries, either physical or emotional, we don’t know. Without these sorts of evidences, this makes this murder, murder without a motive. This also leads to the conclusion he is guilty. On the other hand, I was able to understand that Montresor was jealous of Fortunato’s fine characteristics.This is where jealousy leads to the true main motive of this mere murder. This man was indeed rich, respected, adored, and lived a content life.
Because the jury did not favor black men, Tom Robinson did not receive a fair trial, although Atticus made a great case. Segregation directly disobeys the fourteenth amendment, “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States.” Maycomb Alabama is where the story, To Kill a Mockingbird takes place. Tom Robinson’s trial out come was not based on factual evidence. Mayella was lying to the jury, while Tom was completely innocent. He could not have done everything that Mayella said he did, due to the fact that he one has one working arm.
Tom Robinson is not guilty but suffers death only because of the color of his skin and the racial segregation of the time. "The only thing we 've got is a black man 's word against the Ewells '. The evidence boils down to you-did-I-didn 't. The jury couldn 't possibly be expected to take Tom Robinson 's word
