Serial killer confesses to a 1983 murder, but victim’s identity remains a mystery

Posted On May 3 2021 by

first_imgWilloughby Hills Police(CLEVELAND) — Convicted killer Samuel Little — who has confessed to dozens of murders — says he was behind the death of a young woman whose skeleton was found in Ohio in 1983, according to police.But that woman is still unidentified, and before investigators potentially move forward with charges, they’re looking to find out who this mystery victim is.The woman’s skeletal remains were discovered on March 18, 1983, in Willoughby Hills, Ohio, about 20 miles outside of Cleveland, according to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs).She was believed to be between 17 and 24 years old, according to NamUs.Her remains may have been there anywhere between two to five years, Willoughby Hills Police Detective Jamie Onion told ABC News on Tuesday.The preliminary medical exam did not find a cause of death, Onion said, though investigators speculate it was homicide.Little, a 78-year-old who has confessed to 93 murders spanning 1970 to 2005, says he is responsible for the death of the woman left in Willoughby Hills, according to Onion.Over half of Little’s 93 confessions have been confirmed, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley said Friday.Little remembers his victims in great detail and has drawn pictures of many of the women he says he killed, according to the FBI.Onion interviewed Little in 2018; he said the convicted killer “did disclose to us that he believes our female is someone that he … did strangle back in the late 70s.” According to Onion, Little said the killing took place in Cleveland before the body was left in Willoughby Hills.Onion added, “We’re not comfortable moving forward with charges until we identify the female and make sure that we can put her in the area.”The woman found in Willoughby Hills was wearing a blue or green dress, a black or dark blue sweater and black heels. She was wearing jewelry including a gold Elgin watch, a cross necklace and a gold ring, according to NamUs.Anyone with information about her is asked to call Detective Onion at 440-918-8727 or Detective Ron Parmertor at 440-918-8725.When Little was arrested in 2012 on a narcotics charge, LAPD detectives found that his DNA matched three unsolved slayings from the 1980s, said the FBI. Little said he was innocent, but he was convicted and given three consecutive life sentences, said the FBI.Little was extradited to Texas in 2018 where he pleaded guilty to a fourth murder and received another life sentence, O’Malley said.On Friday an Ohio grand jury returned an indictment against Little for the murders of two Cleveland women in 1984 and 1991, O’Malley said. Both women were strangled, he said. Despite Little’s four life sentences, a warrant has been issued for Little’s arrest, O’Malley said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Posted On Sep 21 2020 by

first_img“Gattuso was very keen on the arrival of Osimhen. We will pay around 80M to Lille and between 4 and 4.5M (1.8 and 2 billion naira) per season to the player,” De Laurentis revealed in an interview with Naples radio station Radio Kiss Kiss. The financial consideration no doubt played no small part in helping Osimhen make his mind up about rejecting advances from Liverpool and Tottenham in favour of a switch to Napoli.RelatedAmuneke Tips Osimhen To Succeed In Italy With Napoli (AUDIO)August 7, 2020In “Featured”OFFICIAL: Victor Osimhen Signs For Napoli In Club Record DealJuly 31, 2020In “Featured”Victor Osimhen “Says Yes” To Napoli, Set To Sign On Thursday – ReportsJuly 15, 2020In “Featured” According to Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentis, Gli Azzuri will pay Osimhen a mouthwatering salary of between €4m – €4.5m euros per year – an astronomical increase from the €80,000 he was collecting monthly in France.That translates to between 1.8 and 2.35 billion naira per year for the Super Eagles striker.De Laurentis revealed that I Partenopei pulled all stops to land the Nigerian scoring sensation who has bagged 38 goals in the last to seasons for Lille and Sporting Charleroi after Genarro Gattuso identified the player as his number one target.

first_imgLocal umpire, Ryan Banwarie, is set to make his on-field, first-class debut in the sixth round of the West Indies Championship where table leaders, Barbados Pride and Windward Islands Volcanoes clash from February 27 to March 1. Banwarie, 30, began his career in 2013 while playing for the Police Sports Club. Then, former international umpire Edward ‘Eddie’ Nichols, approached him to join the classes. He subsequently topped the Caribbean at the  final written examination of the West Indies Cricket Umpires Association.Since then, Banwarie has elevated himself through the ranks after being promoted to the Cricket West Indies `B’ panel in 2016. That year he made his regional debut in a women’s tournament hosted in Guyana with Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago also playing.He featured in five 50-overs and six T20 matches in the competition. He was also a standby umpire on seven occasions. In 2017, Banwarie officiated in five matches in the Regional U15, five more matches in the 2018 edition in Jamaica and five matches in the U17 Regional tournament in Trinidad and Tobago.  The year 2018 also saw him officiating in one on-field match.

Winston Churchill’s other darkest hours, complicated past may change his legacy

Posted On Aug 25 2020 by

first_img Related Keystone/Getty Images(LONDON) — The role he played at a pivotal moment in European history continues to inspire writers, artists and historians to revisit the life of the man, hoping to figure out who he was and capture the true nature of his character.“History,” Churchill once said in a speech in the House of Commons, “with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days.”So it may be said of the myriad reincarnations of Churchill through biographies — including the film “The Darkest Hour,” in which Gary Oldman played the prime minister and won the best actor Oscar.But the modern-day legacy of the former British prime minister and wartime hero is not always received with such celebration.Critics have long explored Churchill’s not-so-fine hours, many of which are expunged from more romanticized depictions.“Churchill’s Secret War: The British Empire and the Ravaging of India during World War II,” written by the American Indian author Madhusree Mukerjee, argues that Churchill was directly responsible for the Bengal Famine of 1943, when more than a million people are said to have starved.Similarly, “Churchill: The Greatest Briton Unmasked,” written by historian Nigel Knight, was an attempt to directly challenge the sentimental image of Britain’s wartime hero, assessing his tenure as prime minister as disastrous for the U.K.Recently in the U.K., a renewed interest in Churchill’s alleged infidelity, while married to longtime wife Clemmie, has spouted numerous articles and the documentary airing this month on British television called “Churchill’s Secret Affair.”A group of students, some of Indian and Pakistani descent, recently stormed a Churchill-themed café in North London after its opening, accusing the owners of “colonialism,” and chanting “Churchill was a racist.” One student, Shukri Habib Ali, wrote that he quoted Churchill’s own words, “I hate Indians … they are a beastly people with a beastly religion,” to the café’s patrons.In 2016, when Churchill’s portrait was to appear on the £5 note across the country, many wrote to express their outrage over such an endorsement for a man whose legacy is tainted by scandal and controversy.Various articles have cited the leader’s own words when he suggested that Britons with mental health issues “should be forcibly sterilised” and that he supported the use of chemical weapons, which he wanted to employ against the Russian Bolsheviks.The writer Christopher Hitchens also wrote about the consequences of having been “brought up on the cult of Winston Churchill.”His stamp on Britain’s history, during its darkest and most defining days of the Second World War, is likely why many of his private and political controversies have been absent from the popular narratives about his life.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
