The Sociopath’s Checklist or Something to Think About

Random musings, observations and insights regarding the Jody Arias case.

By Paula Uruburu, author of American Eve.

Forgive me but I couldn’t resist. I borrowed my title from what was apparently a blog belonging to none other than Jody Arias, circa May 2008, written only a few months before she savagely murdered Travis Alexander, the […]

Doctor Indicted in Murder of Deanna Ballman

Ali Salim, 44, a New Albany, Ohio ER physician who previously worked at Knox County Hospital was indicted in the murder of Deanna Ballman and her unborn child by a Delaware County grand jury. He was arrested at his home yesterday without incident. I wrote about Deanna’s case last August when she went missing. Deanna […]

Cold Case: Bill Comeans

Cold cases tear at my heart strings but when they involve the unsolved murders of children, they are even more upsetting. Bill Comeans was 5 days from turning 15-years old when he was murdered in Columbus, Ohio. He was a student at Westland High School in Galloway, Ohio. I attended this high school and Bill […]

The Last Word

When Josh Powell brutally attacked and burned his children to death last week, I was too angry to even write about it. I was angry that Child Protective Services would take the kids to HIS home for supervised visits. I have never heard of such a thing. It is always done at a neutral area […]

Psuedoexperts

Individuals utilized by the media to comment on serial murder cases include both experts and pseudoexperts. Experts are identified as academicians, researchers, retired law enforcement officials, mental health professionals, and retired law enforcement […]

Implied Credibility = CRAP!

I realize that I at times have some colorful descriptions of the people and activity that I see on the interwebz, and am surely called a few choice names myself, but the lack of intelligence by some in the true crime community is mind boggling! After giving it much thought lately – people are just […]
