Great Barr gardeners in centenary tribute to their adopted ‘lost soldier’ – with VIDEO and PICTURES

The centenary of the soldier’s death was commemorated with full honours at Thornbridge Allotments in Great Barr where his service medal was dug up several years ago. Growers at the site were intrigued by the discovery and set to work to find out who owned it.

After identifying Private Richards through his army number, they learned his military honours had been distributed among family members, including his brother-in-law Emrys Davies who later moved from the Rhondda Valley in south Wales to Great Barr and had an allotment plot at the site.

Uncovering the story of Private Richards, of the 7th Battalion King’s Shropshire Light Infantry, was taken on as a research project by the allotment committee and over the years they have even traced relatives of the miner’s son who could never have realised he would be commemorated in this way.

After joining up in August 1914, at the outbreak

“Austen the Musical”
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a female actor in possession of great talent should apply for this role. “Austen the Musical” starts when the author is an unpublished 20-year-old living in Hampshire. Erudite and witty, she struggles to find readership in the male-dominated world of Georgian England.

Husband-and-Wife Private Detectives Investigate the Murder of Their Own Daughter




Jessie Whitehouse was shot in her home last fall, and IMPD hasn’t yet publicly identified a suspect.

July 2017Comments

No one loved a good murder mystery more than Jessie Whitehouse. It was in the blonde-haired, blue-eyed, 30-year-old paralegal’s blood. Raised by a lawman-turned–private eye, and the granddaughter of a legendary Indianapolis Police Department detective, Jessie was weaned on the gritty details of the city’s most notorious homicide investigations. Her stepfather, Virgil Vandagriff, was a Marion County sheriff’s deputy who worked on nearly every bold-faced crime case in Indy for the last four decades, many of them known by shorthand titles: The Speedway Bomber. The Burger Chef Murders.

Investigation Discovery logo JUNE 2012

via press release:

From fiery red hair to long, lean legs, it’s amazing to witness unique traits handed down the family line. But when a relative exhibits characteristics of a more malevolent manner, it raises an age-old debate with an unsettling twist: could nature have produced an evil mutation or has nurture created a monster?

Premiering Wednesday, August 28 at 9 PM E/P, Investigation Discovery’s new series EVIL KIN examines families unraveled by the cruel conduct of a black sheep. Murder. Abuse. Cult activity. Mind games. Identity theft. Even incest. Every town has “that family” that incites fear as much as it fuels morbid curiosity. Whether it’s siblings from hell, the spawn of Satan, or an entire household of horrors, it’s not hard to dig up the root of all evil in these six episodes of family trees nearly cut down by
