Gouldsboro skull, found in 2015, ID’d as missing Connecticut man

A human skull discovered more than two years ago in Wayne County is that of a Connecticut man who disappeared in 2011, Coroner Edward Howell said Monday.

The remains were positively identified as those of George Julian Rymko of Waterbury, Connecticut, using DNA testing, Howell said.

A hunter found the skull April 28, 2015, in woods near 827 Main St., Gouldsboro, and contacted authorities. No other remains were recovered.

According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, or NamUs, Rymko, who was 49 at the time, was last seen alive Jan. 22, 2011, in Scranton.

His vehicle, a blue 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe with Connecticut plates, was located at a Gouldsboro truck stop about two weeks later.

Howell said a forensic anthropologist who obtained a DNA sample from the skull compared it to a DNA sample submitted by a blood relative of Rymko, which yielded

Putnam attorney charged in federal court for alleged child pornography – Charleston Gazette

A Putnam County attorney will attend his own preliminary hearing on Thursday, less than a week after he was arrested for the “receipt of child pornography.” 

Attorney Stephen Craig Sluss stored several graphic videos of girls between the ages of 5 and 7 on his home computer, according to an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.

He operates a law office in Hurricane, and he served as a public official in Kanawha and Putnam County for years. 

West Virginia State Police began an investigation after Chatstep, an online chatting service, reported a user to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. 

The user, “mckicker40,” was later determined to be Sluss, the affidavit states. 

Sluss allegedly uploaded an explicit image of a teenage girl to the website on May 13. The website is free and anonymous, which makes “photo sharing very easy,” according to the affidavit. 

Investigators apparently tracked

Central New York child porn victim walks jury through abuse

Editor’s Note: This article on the rare testimony of a child pornography victim contains graphic descriptions. Its content may be upsetting to some readers.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Two little kids play in a bath tub. It appears to be an innocent scene, one familiar to many families.

Then a man’s voice can be heard from behind the video camera. He sounds playful and uses baby talk.

“You’re silly,” he tells the boy and girl, both around 5 or 6 years old.

Then he begins to direct: Stand up. Turn around. Bend over. No, I can’t see you like that. Move to the side. Lay down. Lay back all the way. Move your leg. Put your feet down.

The video plays from courtroom monitors obscured from the public’s view during trial at the James Hanley Federal Building today.

A juror holds her hand over her mouth. Others clutch their chests.

In Praise of ‘American Vandal’: TV’s Sleeper Hit of the Year

Streaming services like Netflix often tend to work on a model which favors hype following instead of leading – for every Marvel property or proven commodity like Black Mirror that’s preceded by a blitz of hype, there are dozens of series that get released with little fanfare, banking on big leaps of faith that the right folks will find it. (Remember how little advance buzz accompanied Stranger Things before that first weekend turned it into a phenomenon?) Still, on paper, a true-crime satire that harnessed the appeal of both 13 Reasons Why and Making a Murderer sounds like the kind of sure thing that would get a major marketing rollout. Which is why you’d have thought that Netflix would have turned the premiere of American Vandal, Tony Yacenda and Dan Perrault’s parody of modern investigative vérité set in a high school, into a major stop-the-presses event. 

Looks like there’s more bad news for Making A Murderer’s Brendan …




By Olivia Hayes

At one stage, it seemed freedom was right around the corner for Brendan Dassey.

One of the main subject’s of Netflix’s popular crime documentary series, Making A Murderer, had his ruling overturned throughout the year, raising hopes that he would soon leave prison.

Now though, it’s been repealed.He and his legal team had the motion for his release declined by a US appeals court.

Brendan was only 16-years-old when he was convicted, and then this year, at the age of 28, after his conviction was overturned, a Chicago court house found he was interviewed properly by police and his confession of murder was not forced.

If you remember watching the series, Brendan was brought into the police station on his own, without a parent or guardian, when he
