James Rackover was led out in cuffs from New York 's 13th Precinct, center, after being charged with the murder of Joseph Comunale, left, 26, over the weekend. Lawrence Dilione of Oceanport, New Jersey, top right, has also been charged with his murder. Rackover and Lawrence Dilione are facing charges of second-degree murder, tampering and hindering prosecution charges after they allegedly stabbed Comunale 15 times and then tried to burn his body with gasoline on Sunday. The body of Comunale, who goes by the name Joey, was discovered in a wooded stretch on the Jersey shore early Wednesday. His partially-burned remains were found inside a suitcase that had been buried behind Foggia 's Florist in the town of Oceanport. There were multiple stab
The two books I read was And Then There Were None (ATTWN) and Confessions: The Private School Murders. ATTWN, the first book, was about these 10 people who were invited to this island, some of them for a job and some were invited just to hangout and have fun. One by one they start being killed and they try to figure out who is the murderer. The second book I read, Confessions: The Private School Murders, was about this young girl, Tandy, and her two brothers. Their older brother is on trial for murdering his girlfriend and their unborn baby, the girl is figuring things out about her past and her long lost lover, and there are private school girls getting killed right where she lives and she is trying to figure out all of these answers. I think
No one deserves to die, and no one deserves death. Some executions are justified, but David Herold’s was not. Herold was a skilled and talented man who was deprived into a corner to help a killer. James L. Swanson’s novel, Chasing Lincoln 's Killer, a diary entry, “Last Diary Entry of John Wilkes Booth,” and an article, “Lincoln Writ of Liberty” contain evidence that proves Herold’s innocence. Herold did help a murderer; however, he is like everyone, in that he is susceptible to violent threats. For this reason, Herold did not deserve a conviction with a capital sentence; the punishment was far too severe, and does not fit the crime.
Throughout history there have been several events across the country that has helped abolish slavery and segregation such as “Brown vs. Board of education” and the “Emmitt Till Murder Case”. In small towns however there have been events that have changed the beliefs of communities. Some will eventually be known nationally. Others will never be heard of by those that live outside of those small communities.
Casey Anthony “Smell of Death” In the summer of 2008, Casey Anthony daughter Caylee Anthony was last seen on June 16, 2008. No one knows where she was nor did Casey report that her daughter was missing. Time went by with no sign of Caylee reappearing. Casey’s mother called and reported that her granddaughter was missing and that Casey’s car smelled like a dead body had been in there.
The reason O.J. was found not guilty of murder and acquitted in criminal court, but found guilty of the tort of harm and ordered to pay damages in the civil court lies in the structure of our legal system, in regards to criminal cases and civil cases. The distinct difference between criminal cases and civil cases provides further explanation regarding the O.J. Simpson case. Criminal cases deal with crimes against society. It is the government, not the victim, who brings action against the charged individual. In criminal cases, the penalties can include a number things including jail time. Since the stakes are so high in these cases, there is a high burden of proof on the prosecution. The prosecution must prove the defendant’s guilt “beyond
COURTS The court system is made up of many operational parts that all work together to achieve an overall goal. For my courtroom observation I have chosen the State of Florida v Casey Marie Anthony trial. This trail took place on the 23rd floor of the Orange county courtroom in Florida which seats about 50 people. Casey Marie Anthony (the defendant) is on trial for the death of her two-year-old daughter Caylee Marie Anthony. She is being tried for first degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child, and four counts of providing false information to police.
Johhny and Ponyboy had been smoking inside of the old church they had been livng in. Some of their ashes fell onto the ground and started a fire. Ponyboy and Johnny knew this because Ponyboy said this on page 91 “I bet we started it,’ I said to Johnny. ”We must have dropped a lighted cigarette or something.” But Ponyboy and Johnny heard some screams come from inside the church and a woman proclaimed the it must have been the missing children.
Those who believe that O.J. is innocent point out the fact that the murder weapon was never found. They believe that if O.J. had committed the murders, he would have had to take his bloody clothes and murder weapon through airport security and given them to Robert Kardashian knowing that the bodies could have been discovered before he landed and the police could have been waiting for him in Chicago (Dershowitz 135). This would have been too risky, showing that O.J. could not have committed the murders.
The O.J. Simpson trial was a trial that was seen across the nation. Therefore, everyone was watching this trial to see what would happen and as we know evidence plays a major part in getting the correct verdict in a trial. Now some of the physical evidence that was found was some hair evidence on a cap as well as on Ron Goldman shirts. There were some cotton fibers consistent with the carpet in the Bronco that O.J. was riding in on a glove at his Rockingham residence as well as at the Bundy residence. Furthermore, there was blood dropped by the killer at Bundy and it was noted that it was the same type as Simpson and he had fresh cuts on his left hand a day after the murder. There is also the fact that there was blood found in the Bronco, foyer,
OJ Simpson was an idolized NFL player, actor, and broadcaster. He was loved by all and defied all racial barriers during the 1900s. People didn’t see him for the color of his skin, they saw him as an American hero. This was until June 12, 1994 when Nicole Simpson, OJ Simpson’s ex wife, as well as Ronald Goldman were found murdered. This was the beginning of the end of most Americans respect and adoration for OJ Simpson. OJ became the prime suspect of their murders.
The Evidence Victims In this case, there were three total victims between the ages of eleven to thirteen, all of which being boys.
