1 year ago, Baby Kamiyah’s mystery solved, a family reunited and another fractured – Florida Times

The early years certainly did not resemble how most people envision the benchmark moments in life.

She was born to a teen who became pregnant at the age of 15. Her father, a 22-year-old, was in jail on the day of her birth. A few months later Craig Aiken was returned to jail after police learned he was the man who impregnated an underage Shanara Mobley.

By now many people knew the name Kamiyah Mobley, the newborn abducted from a Jacksonville hospital in 1998. They worried about the infant and her young mother. They worried for the sake of future children and parents everywhere.

Where was she? How could it happen? Could it happen again?

Aiken and Mobley missed Baby Kamiyah’s first tooth. They weren’t there when she toddled on unsteady legs or when she came home from school swooning over a special crush.

Likewise

How Mystery of Mountain Bike Pioneer Mike Rust’s Death Was Finally Solved

The Hall inducted Rust in 1991.

Mike Rust leading the pack.

Here’s the site’s Rust biography:

A native of Colorado Springs, Mike grew up in a large family (5 brothers and 1 sister). He began building bicycles at an early age; his first was when he was in the seventh grade. This bicycle had a cruiser frame, sturmey-archer 3-speed hub, 40 degrees laced to a 36 degree 26 x 1.75 rim, 3-speed stick shifter and a banana seat.

In 1965, Mike built a mountain bike with a stingray frame, 20-inch wheels, knobby tires (front back), flat handlebars and a leather saddle, which he launched off the front porch. His next bicycle was a used French 8-speed with 2 chainwheels and a 4-cog free wheel to which he added “curldown” dropbars.

After a 5-year romance with his motorcycles, Mike rediscovered bicycles, became a USCF licensed racer

Jalopnik sleuths, we call upon you and your inherent car knowledge. Update: Damn! You guys are good!

Police say they need more resources as fewer homicides are solved

In photos, Sandi Roth’s smiling face is dotted with dimples.

Her father remembers the sound of his daughter’s laugh.

But Roth, 29, spent the last few months of her life in silence.

A tracheal tube helped her breathe as she lay in a coma after she was severely beaten in January on a Hilltop street. She was moved around from one facility to the next before dying in March.

Roth remains one of this year’s unsolved homicide cases, which outnumber the cases police have been able to close.

“I don’t think they’re ever going to find the person who did it,” said Bruce Dunkle, her father, who now lives in Rockwood, Tennessee.

The total number of slayings this year was 80 as of Monday morning. Police have made arrests in 22 cases and closed five more through what they call “exceptional clearance,” for example, if

Smaller percentage of Horry County murder cases solved in past decade, FBI reports – WBTW

CONWAY, SC (WBTW) – FBI data shows the number of murder cases solved by Horry County police has fallen in recent decades.

Captain John Harrelson joined the department about twenty years ago. He now heads up the Criminal Investigations Division (CID), but through the ranks, he’s seen changes in the way the department solves murder cases.

“The technology, whether it be fingerprints and DNA has come light-years in my career. I can remember it taking sometimes months even excessive years, and now with technology such as A Face and in some instances it’s almost instantaneous,” said Captain Harrelson.

Still, despite new technology, Thomas Hargrove with the murder accountability project says like many other departments, the Horry County Police Department is having a hard time catching murderers.

“In recent years, murders are becoming less likely to be solved,” said Hargrove.

Hargrove and his group compared data reported to the FBI by police departments and found from

A Mother’s Search: How tragic teen Samantha Bonnell’s mom solved mystery after her death

Tonight on Investigation Discovery, A Mother’s Search looks at how tragic teenager Samantha Bonnell’s mother Mary Weir solved the painful mystery surrounding her disappearance — by identifying her on the web following her death.

Bonnell died at the age of 18 after being hit by at least two cars on a freeway in Montclair, CA. She had traveled there from her home in Palmer, Alaska, while pursuing a dream of traveling the country.

Around a day before her death, she rang her mother Mary to tell her how she was getting on — never to be heard from again.

As Samantha didn’t have any identification documents on her when she died, police were unable to identify her body.

She lay unidentified as Jane Doe 17-05 for a year and a half before
