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.

Восставшие: люди, которых много лет считали мертвыми, а они оказались живы

Бежала от мужа-тирана: мать и дочь воссоединились спустя 51 год

Исчезновение Люси Джонсон было странным с самого начала. Последний раз Люси видели соседи в сентябре 1961 года, но ее муж сообщил о пропаже только в мае 1965 года. Совершенно непонятно, зачем супруг ждал четыре года, прежде чем пойти в полицию и рассказать о том, что его жена исчезла. Если он причастен к делу — зачем идти в полицию, а если нет — зачем ждать четыре года? Разумеется, именно муж Люси стал первым подозреваемым. Полиция перерыла весь задний двор дома Джонсонов в попытке найти останки пропавшей, но безуспешно.

Дочь Люси Линда Эванс, будучи уже взрослой, очень хотела найти свою мать. Несмотря на все доводы разумаRead more at: https://www.cosmo.ru/lifestyle/stil-zhizni/vosstavshie-lyudi-kotoryh-mnogo-let-schitali-mertvymi-a-oni-okazalis-zhivy/

University of Virginia celebrates bicentennial – San Antonio Express …


CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — As the University of Virginia prepares to celebrate the bicentennial of the laying of its cornerstone, the exact location of that stone remains a mystery.

“It’s probably still in the wall, in the same place as 200 years ago,” said Brian Hogg, senior historic preservation planner at UVa. “People have gone down to look in Pavilion VII, but it’s probably been bricked up or buried.”

The cornerstone was laid on Oct. 6, 1817, in a Masonic ritual attended by current and former Presidents Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe.

“Nowadays, we think of a ceremonial block of stone with a name and date on it, but this was a meaningful ceremony designed to

Break in 1980s Middle Georgia cold case solves part of long-mysterious vanishing

The body of a man shot in the head and left on a remote dirt road between Forsyth and Gray 33 years ago has been identified as a missing Florida man.

The Telegraph has learned that a DNA analysis of the man’s remains, completed earlier this year, matched that of William Maholland, who was reported missing from Fort Lauderdale in June 1984.

Maholland, who was 28, is thought to have been killed in May of that year and dumped in Jones County, nearly 600 miles north of his hometown.

A fisherman found the body in the Oconee National Forest, a few miles southeast of Ga. 18 and U.S. 23. The fisherman had seen buzzards circling near Jarrell Plantation and Caney Creek Road.

Investigators suspected that the dead man — whose body was shirtless — was from out of town because of his Bermuda shorts and a belt with swordfish on it.

A new associate professor and criminologist, Michelle Jeanis, Ph.D., has partnered with the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s department for research that could improve social media’s use in missing person cases.

“Right now, they’re calling it the new milk carton campaign,” Jeanis said.

Jeanis explained her work is intended to find the social media tactics that work best for nonprofit organizations and law enforcement.

“One of my main goals is getting this information to the practitioners,” she said. “I think about that with all the research that I do. Why am I doing this and how can it benefit the people doing the real work?”

Jeanis was invited to speak at a training seminar by Lafayette Sheriff Public Information Officer John Mowell. Afterward, she was asked to conduct further research with them.

“We don’t know
