  Riley Fox
Posted by: Summer Dawn - 04-06-2017, 04:11 PM - Forum: OTHER children taken from their beds - No Replies

Justice at last for father accused of killing his daughter, 3, after sex offender admits to murder 



A convicted sex offender pleaded guilty today to the 2004 sexual assault and murder of a three-year-old suburban Chicago girl whose father was wrongly accused in the crime.

With the parents of Riley Fox sitting just a few feet away, Scott Eby said in a clear voice the word 'guilty' six times - ensuring he will spend the rest of his life behind bars. 

In exchange for the 39-year-old's plea, prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty. 

The courtroom was packed with dozens of friends and family of Riley, many wearing pins with a photograph of the girl nicknamed 'Rileybugs' on them. 

The gallery was silent as Eby entered his plea, ending a six-year ordeal in the highly-publicised case. 

But that composure disappeared when Assistant Will County State's Attorney Michael Fitzgerald described what Eby himself admitted to doing on June 6, 2004. 
In horrific details, Mr Fitzgerald told the judge how Eby, in a five-page letter, admitted he had been drinking and using cocaine that day - a combination that gave him the urge to break into Riley's Wilmington house and molest her. 
Eby said he put a bandanna over his face before entering the house, put his hand over Riley's mouth and put her in the trunk of his car. 

He described then driving to a nearby forest preserve, duct-taping her wrists and mouth and sexually assaulting her on the floor of a men's room. 

Eby told authorities he knew the girl could identify him and panicked, taking her to a nearby creek and holding her 'under the water by the shoulders until he couldn't feel her struggle anymore'.
Many in the courtroom openly wept, and one member of the gallery yelled 'Rot in hell' before leaving the courtroom.

Riley's father, Kevin Fox, who spent eight months in jail before he was exonerated by DNA evidence, was the first to take the witness stand and read a statement. 

He talked about sitting in a jail cell when he was a suspect, knowing prosecutors wanted him executed and that the real killer was free. 

He said: 'I would always wonder what you were doing with your freedom. If you were lying, watching TV or if you were picking your next victim.'

He said that once he left court he would force Eby from his mind, adding: 'After today you will no longer be a part of my memories of my daughter.'

Riley's mother Melissa spoke of the joys of watching her daughter and how she liked to sing, dance, tell jokes and catch butterflies. 

But, as her voice cracked, she also told Eby what he took when he held her daughter's head under water. 

She said: 'She would never have the opportunity to play with her friends, have sleepovers, get her drivers' license, go to homecoming or prom, go to college, get married or have a family of her own.'

Mrs Fox stared directly into Eby's eyes each time she looked up from her statement, and Eby was visibly moved by her words.

She added: 'I didn't get a chance to say goodbye or give her a last kiss or hug. Instead, I visit a headstone that I decorate for holidays and her birthday.'

Eby fought back tears when she said: 'It disgusts me that she is gone and you are still here.'

He spoke briefly, saying he didn't have any answers or know why he killed the little girl.
Reading from a prepared statement, he added: 'I wish I could explain.'

After the hearing, Eby's attorney Michael Renzi said his client always intended to plead guilty from the time he was charged in May. He said he didn't want to put the family through a trial. 
Prosecutors said Riley's parents agreed to the plea deal. 

'She would never have the opportunity to play with her friends, have sleepovers, get her drivers' license, go to homecoming or prom, go to college, get married or have a family of her own' 

Mrs Fox said in court: 'I'm opposed to you getting the death penalty and dying a quick, painless death.'
Kevin Fox had harsher words after the trial. He said: 'I hope he rots in hell.'

The plea comes nearly five months after Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow announced he'd charged Eby with first-degree murder and predatory criminal sexual assault of a child. 

Authorities were led to Eby from DNA evidence collected from the crime scene along with other clues, including a pair of Eby's shoes pulled from the water that had his name written in them. 

Mr Glasgow, who was not the prosecutor when Mr Fox was arrested, cleared the father after taking office. 
When he announced in May that Eby had been charged with murdering Riley, Mr Glasgow was careful to point out that any prosecutor would have been hard pressed not to file charges against Mr Fox after watching video of statements Mr Fox made to investigators during questioning. 

Mr Glasgow declined to say what Mr Fox told detectives, but he described the statements as 'significant'. 
The Foxes were awarded $12.2 million in damages after they accused Will County investigators of fabricating evidence. 
A federal appeals court in April upheld their claim that Mr Fox was falsely arrested but reduced the award to $8.6 million. 

Eby, who has served prison time for burglary and forgery, was an inmate at the medium security Lawrence Correctional Center in Sumner, serving time for a 2005 sexual assault conviction filed in connection with an attack on a relative. 
According to the Illinois Department of Corrections, he will be eligible for parole on that conviction in mid-2017.

  Other garrote murders
Posted by: Summer Dawn - 04-06-2017, 03:58 PM - Forum: Cord ligature - Garrote - No Replies

Recently, I started researching about Garrotes.. the history... looking into murder cases where others were killed by a garrote.

I found a really interesting article about a  nurse murdered in 1979.

It was a cold case.

No fingerprints'

Local police NEVER investigated a murder like this one.

Sounds familiar...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Lead “Dateline” correspondent Keith Morrison has told dozens of tales of murder, but even he hadn’t encountered grisly details like those of the brutal slaying of Torrance nurse Lynne Knight in 1979.

“Never have I encountered a garrote in a domestic crime, in a local crime that was committed in this way,” Morrison said in an interview Thursday. “It flummoxed everybody. They couldn’t figure it out. There were no fingerprints. It was pre-DNA. It drifted along for all those many years.”


The quest by a cold-case prosecutor and Torrance police detectives to solve the three-decades-old killing will be recounted tonightin a two-hour “Dateline” segment at 9 p.m. on NBC. In August, a jury convicted Knight’s former boyfriend, Douglas Bradford, of first-degree murder, despite his years of claiming he was sailing in the Alamitos Bay on Aug. 29, 1979, when someone slipped into Knight’s Anza Avenue home and mutilated her.


A homemade garrote built with wooden mop handles and picture-hanging wire lay hidden under her body. The device was built so strongly that it failed during the crime, slicing a gash so deep into Knight’s neck that she could breathe through it. Her killer extinguished her pig-like sounds for help by stabbing her in the leg, rupturing her femoral artery and ending her life.
Morrison said “Dateline” built its own garrote for the show.
“I’m holding it right now in my hands,” Morrison said, finishing up the production. “What occurs to you immediately — there is a lot of work that goes into it. You’ve got to cut the dowels, drill the holes, sand them down, carefully put the wire through, double it. Somebody put several hours effort into it, knowing they were going to use this weapon.”


The 28-year-old Canadian nurse hadn’t been in Torrance long. She moved to California to take a job at Little Company of Mary Hospital, working in the neonatal unit. She rented an apartment in a converted garage.
Bradford, an engineering student at Cal State Long Beach, met her while skiing. They dated for a few months. But the relationship ended when he wanted to be exclusive and she didn’t.
During his trial in July and August, witnesses recalled Bradford stalking her apartment, driving past it in his orange 240Z. One night he burst into the apartment and angrily threw a lamp at Knight because she was entertaining another man.


Although police had the garrote, and suspected Bradford committed the crime, detectives could not build enough evidence to prosecute him. Bradford claimed to be sailing at 10:30 that night and having to paddle in to the shore when the wind died.
The case went unsolved.
“I personally worked nine homicides as the lead or co-lead,” said retired Torrance police Capt. Emilio Paerels, who was called to assist at the murder scene with the lead investigator, Gary Hilton. “This was the only one that wasn’t solved. To me, this one was a bugaboo. But the problem is you know who it is. In your heart, you know you’ve identified the suspect, but you’ve gotten to a point where you know it is cold.”


In the early 2000s, Torrance police detectives reopened several unsolved cases, including Knight’s murder. Paerels, working with Deputy District Attorney John Lewin, reinterviewed the witnesses. Now retired Torrance Detective Jim Wallace visited Bradford’s mother at her house in Orange County. He noticed two facts that detectives at the beginning did not: Bradford’s mother was an artist who hung her paintings on the wall with metal wire. Some had hung there for decades.
The mother also used wooden dowels for security locks on her windows.


Tests revealed the wire was the same kind used in the garrote found at the murder scene. Bradford was arrested May 13, 2009. The wire played a central role in the trial.
Famed O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Shapiro defended Bradford, who chose not to take the witness stand to testify. Shapiro told the jury that Bradford was innocent, and presented his sailing alibi. Lewin countered that with weather and sailing experts, who described how the wind patterns that night did not corroborate his story.
Jurors came back with a verdict Aug. 14, providing relief to Knight’s father, sister and other family members who had waited so long to hear the word “guilty.” Bradford was scheduled to be sentenced to 26 years to life in prison next week, but Shapiro on Thursday requested that the proceeding be postponed until December.


Morrison said he interviewed family members and retired detectives for the program, which fittingly is called “The Wire.” Morrison said he wished Bradford would have consented to an interview.
For “Dateline,” the Knight case had all the necessary elements for a good mystery, including the fact it became Wallace’s last case, and the last trial for Shapiro, “all getting together in the same courtroom where Shapiro assisted in the acquittal of O.J. Simpson.”
“It’s a very compelling program,” Morrison said. “I wound up, as sometimes one does in these cases, particularly in this one, wishing I had had a chance to know the victim. Seems like a really quite terrific young woman — as long as she was allowed to live.

  John Ramsey on their friendship
Posted by: jameson245 - 04-06-2017, 12:46 PM - Forum: Fleet and Priscilla White - Replies (1)

starting from page 306 of the paperback edition of "the Death of Innocence": 

"As was the case with most of our social friendships, Patsy had met Priscilla and
her children first.  Their kids were almost the same ages as JonBenet and Burke.  Later, Fleet and I were introduced into an already blooming friendship. When we first met, they were renting a small house, two doors up the street from us.  The Whites told us that they had left California because they felt the fast life around Newport Beach was a poor place to raise children.  They had originally thought of moving to Aspen, where Fleet's parents had a home and where Fleet and Priscilla and their children had spent considerable time.  But even Aspen didn't suit what they were looking for.  Ultimately, they settled in Boulder after Fleet drove there one day and decided it was the perfect community for them. Our children became instant friends and enjoyed frequent trips to and from each other's houses, which they could accomplish on their own with complete freedom, via backyards or front sidewalks. That was one of the benefits of a small town, I thought.  Priscilla was a fun-loving, California girl who liked to entertain and had a good sense of humor.  She and Patsy quickly hit it off, and they enjoyed each other's company. 
 The moms soon discovered that Fleet and I shared a penchant for sailing, as well.  It is rare that dads and moms and both children synchronize so easily.  Both sets of parents were older, and that added to the similarities.
 "The newspapers later would refer to Fleet as an oil magnate.  His father, Fleet White, Sr., was reported to have had a natural gas drilling company in California.  He may have worked for his dad for a period of time before coming to Colorado, but as far as I know, Fleet did not work at a steady job during the time I knew him in Boulder.  At one point he was trying to help his dad clean up some environmental issues at a gas station they owned in California, and he spoke of trying to get something started with some Denver businessman.
"Fleet was mainly my sailing buddy.  He occasionally talked of being an ardent sailor in the Newport Beach area and proudly displayed many models of the sailboats he had raced.  He spoke of a silver loving cup which bears his name and is on permanent display at the Newport Beach Yacht Club.  He was a very experienced sailor.  I was not.  I could learn a great
deal from him.  Whenever we were together, sailing was our singular topic of conversation. Since he didn't have a nine-to-five job as I did, Fleet was free to be the coordinator of logistics for our sailing ventures."

Jim Marino They were loads of fun too. I've been friends since the 70's back to johns original marriage. I was with John when Beth was run over by a Mack truck. I was with him when Jon Benet was murdered. He's fine now. We talked last week. Jon Benet had Patsy ' s eyes. They were regular folks till that Christmas. What would you do in that circumstance? I defended the family to a fault on Geraldo, the view, people mag etc etc. sad and still haunts me


Jim Marino Well we will never know what culpability they have in the matter. However it doesn't matter above the love I have always had for those two

Jim Marino Kathy Buck Lezovich - not sure what that is? I was not an informant because I was surprised at the murder the same as everyone else. I defended all the crazy speculation against them... it was a nightmare.




Jim Marino Thats me and wife above John and Patsy at our company Christmas party a couple of years before



Jim Marino my position hasn't change and I have moved on. I think there will always be questions about the ransom note etc.... but its all speculation., The family has all been cleared so we have to leave it there.

all of the friends and employees were suspects till all were cleared, including me.

[/url]who says there is no intruder evidence.

I have to ask what you have been reading and watching - - sure not the depositions or police reports, the crime scene photos or any number of GOOD sources of information.  I fear you have entered into the BORG Twilight Zone ane need to find your way back to the light and some truth.



[Image: 17553849_10211144489240127_8723842401546...e=59996F89]
James Guill No intruder evidence. Every time I ask for this alleged intruder evidence, I am given things that have been thoroughly debunked. You guys always try to twist it to fit your intruder theory. It's not there. Grand Jury indicted after looking at all of the evidence for over a year!
James Guill I've made my case repeatedly, Kathy. The basement window, shoe prints, finger/palm prints, hairs, DNA, stun gun etc.. The police report also says all doors were locked and no signs of entry at any window. If there was an intruder, he had a key. And Patsy wrote that ransom note. No doubt about it.

Starting at the beginning - - if you take one piece of evidence at a time and research it here - on webbsleuths.org - you may find you can find more intruder evidence than you can handle.

From the stun gun - the marks, the interviews with Mike Doberson - the experiments he has done - the other cases he worked on - - - to the list of "things to do" that came out of the Police meetings - - one being find out who OWNED these stun guns back then.  To the interview with the manufacturer.  That stun gun is no theory - - but as you made clear in that other discussion, you really don't care.


[Image: 17553849_10211144489240127_8723842401546...e=59996F89]
James Guill There is no proof that anyone else was in the house that night! Where's your proof?? To say that someone COULD'VE been, is not proof that there was someone!
l All that exists is a mountain of circumstantial inculpatory evidence implicating the family! No evidence of anyone else having been there! You have nothing.


[url=https://www.facebook.com/melinda.soppel?fref=ufi]Melinda Soppel then invited James Guill to read a thread on Evidence of Intruder


jameson askd - Care to guess his response?    Wait no longer.

[Image: 17553849_10211144489240127_8723842401546...e=59996F89]
James Guill No thanks.

  Isabel Celis
Posted by: jameson245 - 04-04-2017, 03:35 PM - Forum: OTHER children taken from their beds - No Replies

The body of 6 year old Isabel Celis was found 5 years after being taken from her Arizona bed.
April, 2017

 6-year-old Isabel Celis - taken from her bed in Tucson, Arizona,
police found her remains in a remote area
DNA analysis did confirm that the remains were those of Isabel Celis

.
[Image: e8e09088a697e05bd7a747b6b2bf6de6]
Isabel was last seen by her family about 11 p.m. on Friday, April 20, 2012.


Her father discovered that she was missing at 8 a.m. the next morning - a broken screen was found in her bedroom.

In that case, the police did go to the media with some case against the parents but said
“We’re labeling it as suspicious circumstances and a possible abduction.”

In the statement after confirming Isabel’s death, Tucson police said they “will continue to actively pursue those responsible for any involvement in Isabel’s disappearance and death, and will pursue prosecution to the highest level possible.”
Officials will not be releasing further details at this time since that “could have unintended consequences,” police said.
“As we move forward in our investigation, we will release additional details as they become available.”

Tucson police are still asking anyone with information about this case to please call 88-CRIME. Tips can be anonymous.
While confirmation of Isabel’s death “may provide some degree of closure,” the police statement reads, “this also sadly ends the hope of bringing Isabel home safely to her family.”

So apparently they want to be up shits creek without a paddle."


So, everyone has the right to have a theory - and I clearly think Jimks is off. 

I have not seen any report that indicates there is DNA from African American or Native American - - but I clearly don't have every bit of evidence out there - - so my question to Jinks is this - - -

Can you tell us the source of this information and make a real case against any member of the family?  I ask because I see a HUGE list of exculpatory evidence and think you are making this stuff up as you go along.

No, I am not interested in entering a private chat with either of you as BORG tends to edit then share.  So I will answer here.

A healthy person maintains control over themselves and doesn't feel a great need to force themselves on others, to be in control of others.    A psychopath can't be happy with controlling hirself - - hir has to control others.  In some circumstances, simple control is not enough, they have to HURT the other person. Sadistic psychopaths can hurt others financially, emotionally, physically... it brings them joy to know they caused that pain.

Are ALL of them totally unhappy all the time?  No, but even a period of time in their lives could have set up a habit that just feels good to them.

(Pam, I don't know if they like pain during sex but suspect your good friend Laurence might help you with that one.)

Since my energy in this case is spent educating people to the truth, encouraging those entrusted to solving this to do better, trying to raise funds to help advance the DNA investigation - - - - - and I am NOT trying to hurt ANYONE while I do that - - I don't think I am at all the same as those who have total disregard for the facts and just go about trying to hurt the efforts of others to see this solved.

Am I calling YOU a psychopath?  Nope.  I have my questions but honestly don't care enough about either of you, or the others, to take my focus off the case - - that trumps all beyond my family.

Going to be hard to copy and paste this and change it.  But feel free to copy and pasts as it is.  I have no problem with that.  Hope I answered your question.  No private chats.
