Mother speaks for first time since daughter’s murder in 2004 – WAVY

ISLE OF WIGHT, Va. (WAVY) — New technology may help to crack a 2004 murder case in Isle of Wight County.

For the first time since the case went cold, 10 On Your Side is hearing from the victim’s mother and getting another look at a suspected killer and his profile.

“It’s hard for me to wrap my brain around someone who would do such a horrible crime,” Patty Lord said.

Police say someone found 28-year-old Carrie Singer’s body in a field, half-naked and her head severely beaten on July 1, 2004.  She was last seen alive the day her body was found.

Review: ‘She Speaks’ at The Rude Mechanicals

Print Friendly

William Shakespeare wrote memorable female characters, many of them laced within male-dominated plays. The Rude MechanicalsShe Speaks came about when director Leanne G. Stump realized that “If you strung the best female scenes together, they’d almost make their own show.” Neatly divided into comedies and histories, She Speaks explores scenes from Shakespeare’s most notable heroines. The cast, with Stump’s direction, has helped create a feast for fans of The Bard.

The breezy, thirty-minute first act began with a prologue from Antony and Cleopatra by Lynda Clark, in which Cleopatra spoke of women inhabiting “our world that equals theirs.”

From there, a subsection of the play entitled “I am the man,” which focused on Shakespeare’s women characters who had to dress as men, felt a bit rushed; in rapid succession, there were scenes from The Merchant of Venice,

Former Teen Killer Speaks from Prison About the Jealousy That Drove a Murder Plot to Kill Her Rival

More than 20 years after she  was convicted of murdering Adrianne Jones, Diane Zamora tears up thinking about her teenage victim.

“It wasn’t her fault, but she wouldn’t have been in that position had I not lost my temper,” Zamora tells People Magazine Investigates from behind bars. Monday night’s episode of the Investigation Discovery series will focus on the case.

Zamora still maintains her innocence in Adrianne’s December 1995 slaying, which stunned their Texas community and made national news. But Zamora doesn’t deny her complicity: She admits that she witnessed her fiancé, David Graham, kill the 16-year-old, and then helped hide it. But she insists she never killed anyone or set out to do so.

(Graham has struck a similarly remorseful tone in past interviews, telling the Dallas Morning News in 2008 that Zamora was the “motivator.”)

“I

Dauphin County coroner Graham Hetrick ‘Speaks for the Dead’ in new television series

As a child, Graham Hetrick would talk to his father as he embalmed the dead.

The Middle Paxton Twp. man didn’t think it was unusual then. Death was a normal part of life when he lived above his father’s funeral home. It’s what led him to become Dauphin County’s coroner for the last 25 years.

Hetrick will talk about some of his investigations as part of Investigation Discovery‘s upcoming eight-part forensic series “The Coroner: I Speak for the Dead,” which premieres 10 p.m. Monday, July 18. Each episode will reconstruct one of Hetrick’s investigations, from serial killings to crimes of passion, according to a news release. All of the cases that will be featured on the series have already been adjudicated.

That doesn’t mean they’ll all be Dauphin County cases, though, as Hetrick also “investigates many cases outside of (the) county.”

“Folks are flown in to two of the large medical facilities that we
