Erin Udell Fort Collins Coloradoan Published 12:46 AM EST Feb 8, 2019 He was a law student, a former social worker and suicide hotline volunteer. He had a girlfriend, political aspirations and — as the newspapers would later say — "a winning smile." And from 1974 to 1978, wherever Ted Bundy went, women disappeared. Like a phantom, he slipped through sorority rows, preyed outside of schoolyards and ski resorts, and proved that you don’t really know the person next to you. But could Bundy — and his reputation as one of the country's most depraved killers — have been stopped cold in Colorado? Two days into a week-and-a-half ski trip, Caryn Campbell left her fiance in the lobby of their Snowmass, Colorado, hotel, boarded an elevator and was last seen walking toward her second-floor room in search of a magazine. She didn't come back, and a few hours later, around 10:30 p.m., her … [Read more...] about Ted Bundy: Could his spree have ended in Colorado?

Micah Walker Detroit Free Press Published 7:14 PM EST Jan 15, 2019 DETROIT – A 262-year-old rare artifact stolen more than 60 years ago from the Dearborn Historical Museum was returned Tuesday. The artifact, a powder horn on loan from the Detroit Historical Society, went missing in 1952 just before the opening of an exhibit titled "Saga of a Settler." The powder horn, which was recovered by the FBI's Art Crime Team in Philadelphia, was returned to the historical museum Tuesday at a press conference. FBI Special Agent Jack Archer said the powder horn was used in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. It was made at Fort No. 4 in Charlestown, New Hampshire, on June 30, 1757, for a soldier by the name of Lt. Abel Prindel. It is engraved with Prindel’s name, rank and the date on which it was made. It also is carved with the following verse: I powder with my broth ball heroe like do Conquer all Tis best abrod with foreign foes … [Read more...] about Powder horn stolen in 1952 from Dearborn museum recovered by FBI
Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at President Donald Trump’s request on Wednesday, ending a tumultuous tenure marked by repeated public humiliations and raising new questions about the fate of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Word of the Justice Department leader’s ouster came via a Twitter post from Trump, who thanked the former Alabama senator for his service and announced that Sessions’ chief of staff, Matthew Whitaker, would take over in an acting capacity. Trump added that a permanent replacement would be nominated “at a later date.” The change atop DOJ doesn’t appear to affect Rod Rosenstein, the embattled deputy attorney general who currently has the critical job of supervising Mueller’s probe into the Trump 2016 campaign and Russian hackers, including the special counsel’s budget and his decisions on subpoenas, indictments and the public disclosure of a final report. Still, the tumult is guaranteed to … [Read more...] about Jeff Sessions out as US attorney general, ending rocky tenure
Jennifer Dixon Detroit Free Press Published 11:11 p.m. UTC Jul 19, 2018 At one end of Alpine Street, near Joy Road on Detroit's west side, Georgeia Elder and a friend live in a leaky trailer, their yard cluttered with a boat and a Cadillac Escalade with four ladders on the roof, a shopping cart and a lawn mower, a folding chair and a metal headboard. A pit bull, Lady, laps up spaghetti and gravy from a takeout container. At the other end of this short stretch of Alpine, near Tireman Avenue, a woman known as Spankie lives in a house with a dog she calls "my baby." A heart-shaped sign hangs from the front door that says "Bless Our Home." A handwritten sign instructs the postal carrier to put her mail in a box tucked into a milk crate next to the porch stairs. A scent of straw and animals hangs in the air. These occupants don't own the properties where they live. They're not paying rent … [Read more...] about Dead bodies, wild dogs, squatters in government-owned Detroit houses
