    Joseph Duncan pleads guilty in the Groene murders. A Canoeist disappears but turns back up when the life insurance is collected. A weird story involving skinned raccoons and dogs and still the social service agencies fail to protect the children. And, as always, a Drew Peterson update.

    Time for some True Crime. We have a woman who used her baby as a weapon, a Duke update, some comments about Jonathan Edington who killed his neighbor for allegedly molesting his toddler. Then there's the murdering soldier, Martinez, and he's facing life. Oh and the lovely John Karr, ersatz murderer of Jonbenet Ramsey, is grabbing his fifteen minutes before he molests again. Some bodies are being exhumed for that murder of the Nevada Controller. He killed her; did he also kill her husband? Finally, that Vermont missing coed found. A creep lent her his cell phone then murdered her.

    It's a True Crime post and there's been a rash of school shootings, some especially heinous. The vicious attack on Amish school girls this past week is a real heart-breaker. The big news is that the Amish are going to forgive. I consider the extreme pacifism of this religious sect to be a danger to them way more than a more aggressive defense would serve them. Also, Jonbenet's John Karr is free and already in trouble as I predicted. Thank you John Ramsey.

    Some serious updates on old crimes. The Dentist from Dacula pled guilty of killing two of the women in his life then made them look like a suicide, and this is a surprise. The Idaho Groene murderer trial begins and the defense protests Shashta Groene testimony. More on Edington, who stabbed the man to death who he thought molested his two-year-old. And the sexy teacher Deb LeFeve is still nuts. We've got info on the Anna Nicole Smith's son death and the woman whose son is missing but she killed herself rather than help with the search. Finally, a Gnome...

The little girl was last seen June 14, 2003, after leaving her home in Chisholm, some 190 miles east of Fargo, N.D., where Duncan lived.
