Mid-Michigan couple positively identified as bodies found 40 years ago in Missouri, Arkansas

(2/5/2018) – Michigan State Police positively identified a Mid-Michigan couple as the bodies found 40 years ago along I-55 near the Missouri-Arkansas border.

The bodies were located on June 17, 1978, about 12 miles apart in Mississippi County, Arkansas, and Pemiscot County, Missouri. Both were dead from gunshot wounds, but authorities could not identify them.

The Michigan State Police confirmed on Monday that the bodies were Kimberlin Mills of Millington and James Hendricks of Flint. Police believe both were murdered by the same person.

Mill’s body was found in a ditch along I-55 with a gunshot wound to the head, according to Doe Network. Hendricks’ body was found about 12 miles north along I-55 with three gunshot wounds.

The couple was last seen at a restaurant in Blytheville, Arkansas.

Neither Mills nor Hendricks had been reported as missing from Michigan 40 years ago. Police initially believed Hendricks, a parole absconder, had fled the state with

Usan reconstrucción facial a partir de cráneos para identificar a quienes murieron cruzando la frontera

TUCSON, Arizona. – Más de mil
restos de inmigrantes encontrados en el desierto de Arizona en la última década permanecen en la morgue del condado Pima a la espera de ser identificados. Gracias a un acuerdo de la
Oficina del Médico Forense del Condado Pima (PCMEO) y la
Academia de Artes de Nueva York para que sus artistas realicen la reconstrucción de los rostros en 3D basados en los cráneos recuperados, pueden ser identificados ocho de ellos.

“La Oficina del Médico Forense del Condado de Pima se asoció con el Centro Nacional para Menores Desaparecidos y Explotados y la Academia de Arte de Nueva York para producir aproximaciones faciales de ocho jóvenes no identificados que murieron recientemente en el desierto del sur de Arizona”, dijo a Univision Noticias, el doctor Bruce Anderson, antropólogo de PCMEO.

El PCOME publicará estas aproximaciones faciales en el
Sistema Nacional de Personas Desaparecidas

Families of missing persons keep searching — for their loved ones as well as for closure

When the snow melts each year in the spring, Alice Guy’s attention turns to news stories about bodies being uncovered by the thaw.

More than a decade ago, Guy’s brother, Walter Smith, went missing. Since then, the Flat Rock resident has made about a dozen trips to central Indiana sites where unidentified bodies have been discovered, each time hoping investigators will tell her they’ve finally found her brother’s remains.

“I’ve had to accept the fact that he isn’t alive, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be found,” Guy said.

Before he disappeared in 2006, the 42-year-old Smith was in the finishing stages of opening a restaurant in Edinburgh. Driving through the small town now is still bittersweet for Guy.

Chasing the Holy Grail of battery storage, scientists test solid state magnesium electrolyte

Energy storage has been called the Holy Grail of renewable energy, but battery storage has its own Holy Grail — a solid state battery.

Scientists at the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) say they have taken a step closer to developing a solid state battery, that is, one that uses a solid electrolyte, which would give it a higher energy density and make it less flammable and safer than batteries that use liquid electrolytes, such as most existing lithium-ion batteries.

However, while the technology is promising, commercializing it could take more than 10 years.

‘Why not leapfrog?’

Scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory were working on a magnesium battery, which offers higher energy density than lithium, but had few viable options for a liquid electrolyte, which tends to corrode other battery parts.

“Magnesium is such a new technology, it doesn’t have any good liquid electrolytes,” Gerbrand

Who Is Little Lord Fauntleroy? Twitter Thinks "Dear David" Is Connected To This Historical Unsolved Murder

One of the prevailing questions about the ongoing Twitter saga of Dear David has been exactly who David is and what he wants. In a response to the latest Dear David update, though, Twitter user @johnlockedz put forth an interesting theory: That Dear David is connected to the Little Lord Fauntleroy murder. Who is Little Lord Fauntleroy? Long story short, he was the victim of a real, historical, unsolved murder — and some folk think there are enough similarities between Little Lord Fauntleroy and Dear David to be of interest.

There’s a lot we don’t know about the Little Lord Fauntleroy murder, but here’s what we do know:

On March 8, 1921, a terrible discovery was made near what was then called the O’Laughlin Quarry in Waukesha, Wisconsin: The body of a small boy

Charleston couple takes on unsolved WV mysteries for YouTube series – Charleston Gazette

Does anyone know who killed LaRoy Gorman? Thirty-five years ago, the banker was murdered coming out of a restaurant in Charleston. His killer was never found.

What really happened to Samuel Riser? Seven years ago, the 60-year-old Cabin Creek native vanished, and people haven’t stopped wondering.

“I guess it’s like they say,” Sean McCracken said. “Everybody loves a mystery.”

McCracken and his wife, Carrie, certainly do. Earlier this year, the pair started “Mysterious WV,” an unsolved-mysteries show on YouTube, where they revisit unsolved and cold cases from around the state, retell the stories and present whatever facts they can find.

“Ultimately, we hope to get some of these cases solved,” Carrie said.

Before there was “Mysterious WV,” it was just Sean and Carrie sitting down to watch public-access-style unsolved-mystery shows on YouTube.

There are plenty of them.

Amateur sleuths pick over old crimes, look for missed clues and string together theories about who done it.

“We fell into
