According to today’s autopsies, there were no signs of physical abuse or trauma on the children – ages 7, 2, and 1 – and toxicology tests were pending “to see if they were poisoned or possibly drugged,” Hart said.

The murderer of the University of North Dakota student, Dru Sjodin, was sentenced to death. It became North Dakota’s first death penalty case in over a century. Alfonso Rodriguez Jr, received the sentence that he deserved. He will no longer be able to walk among us and harm innocent people.

Rodriguez, who got out of prison about six months before the killing, was charged under federal law because Sjodin was taken across state lines.

U.S. Attorney Drew Wrigley, in his statements to jurors, said the death penalty would be the “right thing, in the right case.” He stood near her portrait and asked for justice. Fox News)

Missing Marine Lance Cpl. Lance Hering Bought Bus Ticket after Hoax Disappearance

The case of missing Marine Marine Lance Cpl. Lance Hering is all but considered a hoax. As the days went on in searching for the missing Marine who’s parents thought that maybe he had been the victim of foul play, it now appears that they are coming to the reality that their son faked his disappearance. It is being reported that Lance Hering purchased a bus ticket the day after he faked his disappearance.

A California-based Marine who vanished weeks before his scheduled return to duty bought a bus ticket in Denver the day after staging a bogus story about injuring himself during a hike in the Colorado mountains, authorities said Thursday.

Lance Cpl. Lance Hering, 21, bought the ticket using a different name at about 6 a.m. on Aug. 30 as search crews were gearing up to look for him, Boulder County sheriff’s Commander Phil West said.

West, who did not immediately return a call seeking more details, did not say where Hering might have gone or what alias he used. He said the video obtained with help from Greyhound Bus Line officials would not be released because it is considered evidence. (Mercury News)

Although the Marines position is innocent until proven guilty, it is becoming more and more obvious that Lance Cpl. Lance Hering planned and faked his disappearance. What a mess this has become for Hering. Lance Hering will now face the following charges if it is determined that this was a planned hoax to create the image that he disappeared.

  • He is wanted on a felony charge of failure to comply with terms of a deferred sentence from a 2004 burglary charge.
  • He is also wanted on a misdemeanor charge of conspiracy to commit false reporting to authorities.
  • Lt. Esteban Vickers said if it turned out Hering was purposely absent he could be charged with desertion

Video of Hering found

With the aid of a little videotape, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office is on Lance Hering’s trail.

The Sheriff’s Office informed the media Thursday that, with the assistance of Greyhound Bus Line officials, Sheriff’s detectives obtained video footage of Hering purchasing a bus ticket at the downtown Denver bus depot shortly after 6 a.m. on Wednesday, August 30.

At the same time, Sheriff’s deputies were mounting a search effort for Hering in Eldorado Canyon, southwest of Boulder, based upon the claim of Mr. Steven Powers that Mr. Hering had been injured and incapacitated in a fall while hiking the previous evening. (Colorado Daily)
