There will definitely be one of those TV movies about real-life cases made about this one!

Going off at a bit of a tangent, it does illustrate about experts can disagree with each other. You'll know who and what other case I'm thinking of now!

The prosecution and defence experts came to different conclusions as to whether the crash was an accident or caused deliberately.

My first thought as well after reading it was they'll make a movie about it.

Off topic - but since late last night I can't access the Daily Mail website properly. The layout has all gone to pot. Can someone else just check to see if it's ok and just me or there is a problem with it. Thanks.

That format is all wrong when I go on it. Very strange. Must of inadvertently fiddled with the settings if that's actually possible.

I remember thinking exactly the same thing when I first heard the the details of this case and wondered whether that film was a particular favourite of his.

I'm surprised he's escaped the death penalty over there.

Following on from a case I posted on the previous page:

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-11-10/john-torney-found-not-guilty-of-murdering-mildura-toddler/8012024

The guy admits to hiding the dead toddler in the roof but gets acquitted of all charges and is free to walk. scratch

I wonder if Gerry McCann will be consulting this chaps lawyers next.

This one's been in the news very recently:

http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/14881073.Police_to_search_under_road_in_Renee_and_Andrew_MacRae_murder_inquiry/

Never heard of this tragic case myself. I should imagine the Scottish folk on here are familiar with it though.

Another news story about a young lad vanishing after a night out:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3957334/Desperate-search-gentle-teenager-18-seen-leaving-Wetherspoon-pub-two-weeks-ago.html

A ‘gentle’ teenager has been missing for nearly a fortnight having last been seen after leaving a pub alone in the early hours of the morning.
Police officers, dogs and specialist teams are searching for 18-year-old Adam Mitchell to return him home to his anxious parents in Inverness.
Mr Mitchell, whose parents said he rarely strayed from home without letting them know when he would be home, was last seen in the early hours of November 9.
Police Scotland said searches are focusing on areas around the Longman industrial estate where Mr Mitchell was last seen and Moray Firth coastline.
He was seen talking and laughing with people he met in the Tooth and Claw pub, and spoke to his father at 8.30pm.
Mr Mitchell then left the The King's Highway, a Wetherspoon-owned pub, alone just after 12am and was last seen at 1am on CCTV.

This case has attracted comparatively little publicity.

How can this guy get just a 4 year sentence... scratch

Thug who killed girlfriend then watched TV with corpse next to him jailed for just four years

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/thug-who-killed-girlfriend-watched-9330874

An appropriate sentence for this monster anyway:

The families of four gay men murdered by 'monstrous' serial killer Stephen Port hurled abuse at him as he was jailed for life without parole at the Old Bailey today.

Snipped from the end:

According to Geoffrey Gray, who is releasing the files: 'We’re opening up everything we have to the public, and we need help solving the case.'
He said: 'We’re re-opening the case though—here on True.Ink. We’ll be releasing all of the FBI’s confidential case files, a treasure trove never made available before.
'And true to our spirit of living the story, we’re asking help from our readers to roll up their sleeves and help us annotate the documents in the hopes of generating new leads.'

https://true.ink/story/d-b-cooper-fbi-files-released/

That's the link from the DM article with the released FBI files. 292 pages of it (thought there'd be a lot more than that actually).

I don't think I'll be rolling my sleeves up for this one.

Be interesting to see what the outcome is in these 2 different crime cases which is taking place at the moment:

I was reading about this one a while back. Woman soldier was having marriage problems and then just disappeared after abandoning her car and not turning up for work etc.

http://www.nbcnews.com/feature/missing-in-america/questions-rumors-swirl-around-disappearance-fort-campbell-soldier-shadow-mcclaine-n650571

.....Anyway it's just come up in the DM latest headlines that 2 soldiers have been arrested for her premeditated murder. No body has been found by the way.

This one has a hint of 'McCann' about it:

What a dreadful story, though I don't see any similarities to the McCanns, Andrew.

The bit about the children being returned by the state from presumed safety with their grandmother to their psycho parents reminds me of the Ellie Butler case in England.

Campaigning for the safe return of their child knowing full well his fate and that he wouldn't be found is one similarity.

Yes a dreadful story indeed.

Well, that is something that is common to most, if not all, cases where the disappearance of a child has been definitely proved to be the work of the parents; all those tearful pleas in the media for information.
