Manchester Bombing :(

This week has brought another terrorist attack, two months on from the attack in London, both attacks happened on the 22nd of the month. There have been excellent reactions with people helping those in need. Taxi drivers turning off their fares and giving people rides that need them, houses near by opening the door to people who need to charge the phone, contact people, catch their breath.

There was workers at the Arena that kept a calm mind and prevented further injuries and helped keep people calm. There was even a homeless man who stepped in and helped. It as an horrific and terrible thing and those that were killed and injured will forever be in my heart and I am saddened by the event.

To make it worse people are trying to make drama and make things about them which is sickening and it pisses me off. There was this guy.:—-

Who was given hell for it. How can you joke about something so serious that has only just happened, these were tweeted shortly after the incident and have since been deleted.

He is a free lance writer and as a writer I find it horrifying that he joked so soon when he knew that there was fatalities.

Then there is Onision, the surge of YouTube, who managed to make the whole thing about him and he made a video about it, saying why is their such an out cry about these deaths when thousands die from cancer. Here’s he’s tweet.

blaire white tweet.

Thank you Blare for making this known, along with the Warski’s for speaking up against him. I have done a video that, surprise surprise, it was demonetized but here’s the link. Onision is the worst, the worst of the worst. Click here for the video. also as a Brit I find these tweets and Onisions video as insulting and it worries me that they can be so horrid at such as delicate time for the UK.

I gave this guy the benefit of the doubt but now I’m done.

My heart and love goes to those affected by the events in Manchester. If you see anything out of the ordinary please speak up as you could save lives. We all, all religions, have to work together to end the grip that terror groups have on us.

Stay Safe

Hi

So I’ve been busy with writing and building my YouTube Channel. I have been saving for my trip to London, which I hope to have a date soon, keeping fingers crossed. I have a list of book’s I want to write, video’s I want to do, stream theme’s I want to do, I hope to do one for EDS Society UK at some point this year.

I was out drinking last night at a pub watching my friends band play. He’s the drummer and he’s awesome. I’m biased as he’s my besties hubby but I still believe he’s awesome.

I hope to get some video’s up but I’ll check with them first so watch this space. I am lucky that a lot of people i have around me are creative. My husband and I are working on his books still but I’m trying to finish the two series I have going on before I start on any others.

Once I have dates and video’s I’ll share them with you. Here’s my YouTube Channel, please check it out.

Stay creative and stay you.

Hi Guys

Today in release day for Hell Hath No Fury, and I couldn’t be more excited.

I am so happy with the book and I am so happy that my best friends daughter agreed to be on the cover of it and agreed to be my muse on this.

The basic outline is that Andrew finds the remains of a missing student that went to school with his older brother, what ensues is a roller coaster of of angst and drama as the police try and find the killer that leads Andrew to realize a few things about his life that are hiding a lot of secrets from him.

It’s dark, as most of my stuff is, with a few light moments and I am happy with this book. I am so happy. Sorry for gushing but I can’t help being excited about this.

Click here to get the book. 

Happy Tuesday

Simone

Happy weekend guys.

Who is Ed Gein

Ed Gein is often described as a serial killer by any, while he was one of the sickest and most disturbing killers ever to come to the knowledge of the general public and has been the basis of fictional serial killers Buffalo Bill, Norman Bates and Leather Face because of what he did and what was found in his home when police entered it to find out the extent of his involvement in the disappearance of a local woman.

Verified Victims

Bernice Worden

Mary Hogan

Case Details

November 16th 1957 hardware store owner in Plainfiled Bernice Worden disappeared. Ed Gein was the last customer in the hardware store and the last to see Bernice. Police suspected Gein and when they entered his farm they found Worden’s decapitated body in a shed, hanging upside down with a crossbar at her ankles and ropes at her wrists. She had been shot by a.22 calibre rifle and her body showed post mortem mutilation.

During further searched police were horrified to find a plethora of morbid and strange trinkets.

  • Bones and bone fragments.
  • A wastebasket from human skin.
  • Human leather covering several chair seats.
  • Bed Posts decorated by human skulls.
  • Several female skull with the top sawn off (similar to whats done during an autopsy).
  • Bowls fashioned from human skulls.
  • Corset made from a female torso Skinned from sholders to waist.
  • Human leather leggings.
  • Human leather facemasks (made from a female head).
  • Mary Hogan’s (his other victim) face fashioned into a mask in a paper bag.
  • Bernice Worden’s entire head was in a burlap sack.
  • A plastic bag in front of Gein’s potbellied stove contained Worden’s heart.
  • Nine sets of vulvae hidden in a shoe box.
  • The dress of a young girl and two sets vulvae from two women estimated around fifteen years old.
  • A window shade drawstring sporting a pair of lips.
  • A belt made of human nipples
  • Four noses
  • A lampshade made from human leather created using human face skin.
  • Finger nails from female fingers.

During questioning Gein revealed that during the years between 1947 – 1952  he was taking moonlight trips to the graveyard, digging up recently buried remains and removing the mountain of body parts found in his home. He confessed to robing nine graves, telling the police and told them who digging up two of the graves police found the caskets were empty, one had a crow bar and the other was void of any remains. While checking three other graves the police found evidence revealed Gein would rob the graves before they had been properly filled in, out of the three graves checked one was untouched as he was unable to access the casket but lost his crowbar, one was empty and one had some body parts in it but not the whole body that had been buried.

Following Gein’s mothers death he had began creating a woman suit (hence the correlation between him and both Normal Bates and Buffalo Bill) so that he could be come her.

He denied having sex with the bodies due to the smell of the early stages of decomposition. He also admitted to the shooting death of Mary Hogan, tavern owner that had been missing since 1954 but later denied the memory of the details of her death.

He was considering as a suspect in several other unsolved cases in Wisconsin including the 1954 disappearance of La Crosse baby sitter Evelyn Hartley.

Gein’s confession was deemed as inadmissible due to Sheriff Art Schley reportedly shoving Geins head and face into a brick wall.

He was found not guilty of the two murders due to reasons of insanity and was sent to central state hospital (now Dodge correctional institute) then transferred to Mendota state hospital and he was diagnosed as schizophrenic.

He was found able to stand trial in 1968 and during the one week trial he revealed that he had no idea if the murder of Bernice was intentional or accidental and was found guilty of on Bernice’s death.

Gein died of complications due to cancer on July 26th 1984.

There is also speculation that he may have been involved the accidental death of his brother when he was younger.

Conclusion

As Gein has only two verified kills to his name, though he may have killed others but due to lack of evidence this can’t be confirmed, he is not a serial killer, as there is no evidence that both were committed with malice, planning and forethought. They couldn’t even prove if the killing happened accidentally or not, there was no evidence either way. Yes he was a killer, he was a grave robber, and he enjoyed using ‘human leather’ in his house hold and if he hadn’t have been caught soon after Bernice’s disappearance he may have continued to kill but no he wasn’t a serial killer, he wasn’t even close to reaching the kill counts of people such as Bundy, Dahmer, the West’s and so many others.

The Discovery

In the early hours of December 26th 1996 Patsy Ramsey awoke to pack and ready the family for a trip. Upon descending the spiral stairs she finds a  two and a half page letter on one of the bottom runs. The note tells her that her 6 year old daughter has been kidnapped and that they want $118,000 (the same amount as of John Ramsey’s Christmas bonus that year) to not call the police and that they’d be in touch.

She woke up her husband and told him his she could find JonBenet and that she had been taken. They called the police and then some family friends. Soon after the house was filled with members of the Boulder Police Department and the FBI along with Friends and family.

The chief investigating officer Linda Arndt asked John Ramsey to search the house at 1pm (MST) taking Fleet white with him they headed to the basement, John checked a room they called the wine cellar and found the infant under a blanket, he saw duct tape on her mouth he lifted her and took her upstairs into the maid room, removed the duct tape and Arndt checked for life, she found none and told the parents that she was gone

Cause of Death

The Autopsy revealed that the little girl had been hit over the head, which knocked her unconscious then she strangled several hours later with a garrote made from items within the house, if she had not been straggled the head injury would have taken her life. There was talk of vaginal injury but there was no rape, the ‘vaginal injury’ that people mention is probably due to the autopsy reveals that the young girl has a Hyperaemia, a Hyperaemia is a section of tissue that has an increased level of blood flow and is red and may bleed from time to time, this may have been an indication of a undiagnosed medical illness. This is questioned by many involved in the case. The autopsy report reveals that the Hymen is still intact and that the Hyperaemia travels past the hymen. There was urine staining of clothes, this is due to the muscles that keep the bladder closed relaxes after death, and there is semifluid present but it is generate from the victim and not from another.

Evidence

Ransom note

DNA found in the waist of the tights JonBenet was wearing along with DNA found in the panties the child was wearing

Shoe print in the mould on the floor of the room John Ramsey found her in.

The rope and broken brush that make up the garrote

Pineapple chucks in the child stomach

Suspects

Patsy and John Ramsey

  • Patsy cannot be discounted nor not proved to be the author of the letter.
  • The garrotte was made by one of her artist paint brushes.
  • Lawyered up soon after
  • Judgement over involving their child in beauty pageants
  • DNA absolved them from involvement in the death.

Burke Ramsey

  • Present at the time of death (in the house).
  • Strange/odd emotions in the interview he did with Dr Phil in September of 2016 and in interviews with authorizes after her sister’s death.
  • Some state that he was too young to cause the damage to the infant’s skull. (refer to Mary Bell aged 11, John Venables aged 11, Robert Thompson aged 11, Jordan brown aged 11, Eric Smith aged 13, and especially Derek and Alex King aged 12 and 13 respectfully who were very small who hit their father over the head with a baseball bat and killed him, setting fire to the house to hide their crime who were of a similar size and stature of Burke at the time his sister’s death.
  • DNA cleared him of his sister’s murder.

Michael Helgoth

  • Committed suicide several months after JonBenet’s death, days after the news when the detective told the killer, via the media, that he would find the killer and lock them up.
  • Videotaped confession found in his belongings.
  • A shoe that matched the shoe print in the basement.
  • DNA cleared him.

Bill McReynolds (Santa)

  • Santa at the Ramsey’s Christmas part that year.
  • Daughter was kidnapped 22 years before.
  • Cleared By DNA

There were another 140 unnamed suspects who were investigated throughout the years and all were cleared by the DNA found in the waist band of the tights/leggings and panties/knickers (as we call them in the UK)

What’s needed

  • Deeper analysis of JonBenet’s clothes for DNA not usually seen during searches for fluids (touch DNA).
  • Clearing up any sexual assault information. As I have above.
  • Try to identify anyone who had issues with John Ramsey and knew of their comfortable life style.
    • Also could be known by JonBenet, so she would have trusted them.
  • Analysis of angle of the impact to JonBenet’s head. This may yield the height and if the killer is left or right height headed.
  • Familial DNA Search.

Issues with the case

  • Unsecured scene with too much foot traffic.
  • Incomplete searches done.
  • Lost forensic evidence.
  • Tunnel vision
    • Concentrated on the family and not following any leads that leads away from the family
    • Slandered and dragged the Ramsey’s in the public eye.
    • Continuation of this, they want to speak with Burke despite him being cleared.
    • Intruder theory wasn’t looked at dismissed despite of footprints being near the body that didn’t match anyone in the house.

My Conclusion

The Ramsey’s were not involved someone who knew the Ramsey’s did this to make them feel pain after they felt like they had been done wrong in some way, it was someone the JonBenet knew, they knew the house, they probably feed JonBenet the pineapple, attacked her, knowing her out, wrote the ransom note planning on taking her with them but realized that they couldn’t so killed her and left her in a little known room.

While it is possible for children of a young age to kill I don’t feel that Burke had done this he talks of his sister with such a love that he wouldn’t hurt her. If the angle of the head injury revealed that he did this I would be shocked but I doubt this to be true. As for the voice on the 911 recording that everyone is thinking is Burke is saying ‘what did you do’ I think it is a stretch, much like ghost hunters who do EVP’s that to most make no sense but others hear words.

Burke’s odd behavior during the Dr Phil interview is due to social awkwardness  though I am not trained I would say he has Asperger’s or suffers from a lasting affect from losing his sisters.

Will it ever be solved??

I doubt it, too much damage has been done, too much has gone wrong.

Have a good night

Hi guys

 

I’ve been hard at and I am busy. With a visit from my Mum and the impending release has me finishing my work. I now have a beta reader and I love her for the help she has given me, she is awesome.

I am so excited about this, the things I have planned for this is immense and i really cant wait to show you what I am going to be making. The cover release will happen so and I know that it will be awesome as always, Rue is a genius when it come to covers and I love every single one she has done for us.

I also have some fun planned for Halloween. I’m always in a cave when writing and it sucks because I’m cut off from anything, I hate not being near my computer while the writing urge has me in it’s grips.

Six weeks until release day, six weeks, I still have to pinch myself when I see my books on out TARDIS coffee table and I really hope that I can continue to release books people want to read, I am working hard on several projects to get me into the minds of readers and I have some videos planned that will use my training and my liking of horror to take my YouTube channel into a few new directions. I really can’t wait. Just working on a few things I need to do before I can share but these next two months are going to be busy for me.

Have an awesome week

Hello friends,

This is a short post in preparation for a bigger one later today.

I have some news to share, which is the topic of the larger post, and i am currently getting prepared for several events including baking birthday cakes, Dr Who cookies, short stories and more.

My stationary obsession is being feed by the back to school stationary sales on in almost every shop I go to. Its torture and I give in way too much but being a writer means it will all come in useful.

I love writing, I live reading and I still struggle to believe that I have a book on sale. Its an easy read, short novel with twists and turns. I love the review my fellow Vamptasy writer gave me. Its a little further down. She’s an award winning author and she loved my book and was instrumental in getting it where it is. Click below to get your copy.

So stay tuned for my excellent news later today.

Happy writing

Simone
