Hans Reiser,Linux Filesystem Creator, Held in Murder of Wife Nina Reiser as Reward stands at $25,000

Hans Reiser is being held without bond as even with no body, police have enough circumstantial evidence to keep him locked up. Amazing that murder crimes make strange bed fellows as one of Reiser’s attorneys is Daniel Horowitz. Howrowitz’s own wife was murdered last year.

Reiser, 42, is being held without bail in the Santa Rita jail in California pending a hearing on November 28, when he is supposed to enter a plea. His lawyers, who now include Daniel Horowitz, whose own wife was murdered last year in a highly publicized case, said they delayed entering a plea so they could review the evidence against him.

The cops don’t have a body, only circumstantial evidence, but enough to lock Reiser up. According to a police statement, “We interviewed a host of individuals. All avenues led back to Mr. Reiser being responsible for the death and disappearance of Ms. Nina Reiser.” (Open Source Magazine)

The reward for information leading to the location of the missing Nina Reiser has increased from $15,000 to $25,000.

Trenton Duckett’s Toys & Picture Found in Trash During Initial Search of Duckett Home

It is no surprise that law enforcement probably considered Melinda Duckett a suspect fromTrentonduckett cfn the out set of the disappearance of Trenton Duckett. Melinda would have been the last one to have put Trenton to bed and the first one to have noticed he was missing. The disappearance also took place under Melinda’s roof. However, now we are learning some more details to the original searches performed by the police upon gaining the initial search warrants.

Police asked to search her apartment on Aug. 27 — the night she reported Trenton missing. Investigators went to court to get a search warrant, and they searched her home early Monday morning.

“There were two search warrants served. One on the original night of the disappearance, or I guess that would actually be the following morning, early in the morning hours, and that was as the case wore on and it became apparent after interviewing the parents that the child had indeed disappeared,” said Capt. Steve Rockefeller of the Leesburg Police Department.

Upon searching the home the police found some interesting items:

Law enforcement officials told the WESH 2 I-Team that police found freshly painted walls in some places, and in the back, trash that was allegedly thrown out by Duckett was filled with Trenton’s toys.

But what grabbed investigators’ attention were the pictures, officials said. They said a lot of pictures of Trenton, including the sonogram printout from when Duckett was pregnant, were all thrown away in the trash.

Learning such details it becomes all that much more tragic that Melinda Duckett committed suicide. Authorities being able to question her in whatever manner might have shed some light on all of this as to “Where is Trenton Duckett”?  Authorities have been searching at Ocalla National Forest and have turned up the following so far.

1. This past Sunday, divers in Farles Lake in the Ocala National Forest found a white garbage bag.

On the bag, investigators discovered a substance that some believed was blood and holes that appeared to be from alligator bites. The bag was sent to a Florida Department of Law Enforcement lab in Jacksonville for analysis, and forensic tests showed that the substance on that bag is not blood.

2. Law enforcement officials also said divers found a large piece of asphalt about 10 feet away from the bag. The lake is in a remote woodland where there are no paved roads.

3. The search in the Ocala National Forest has also turned up what could be a child’s shoe. Forensics experts are examining the shoe. (WESH)

The family is trying to work out the details to offer a $5000.00 reward.

The Eubanks’ church fund is in addition to the reward offered by Crimeline. In order to get that reward, tipsters need to call 800-423-TIPS. Police are also urging anyone with information to call the main investigative number at 800-CALL-FBI.

Destiny Norton, 5, Still Missing; Reward Doubles to $30,000

Five year old Destiny Norton is still missing. Police and search teams have been looking for Destiny Norton since last Sunday. VIDEO

70 of his officers are assigned to the Destiny Norton Case with more coming from surrounding agencies as well as the FBI. 250 people have been interviewed in detail. 260 tips have come in from the 799-INFO line as well as the police department’s website. 70% of those tips have been cleared — in other words, they were dead ends.

The reward for information to the return of Destiny Norton has been doubled from its original $15,000.00.

The Mayor announced that the reward for information leading to Destiny’s whereabouts is doubling. The FBI is now pledging $15,000. That will be added to what’s already been donated by Meadow Gold and the Sund Foundation, making the total cash reward $30,000. (ABC 4)

National Media Doesn’t Show Up for Destiny Norton Story

The search for Destiny Norton has generated plenty of local coverage on TV, radio, in the newspapers and on the internet.

One of the few MSM types that have at least referenced Destiny Norton’s disappearance was staunch victims rights advocate Nancy Grace, thank you. VIDEO

It is true that we have not seen any news in the Main Stream Drive by media either on the case of the disappearance of Destiny Norton. That is rather unfortunate. Upon writing this post we are sending a plea to several producers in the MSM in hopes that they will cover this story. In my opinion it has all the aspects of what they normally do cover. Sometimes they just need a nudge.

A five-year-old girl disappears without a trace, and a community searches. Among the apparent mysteries is why, so far, the national media have stayed away. Jeannie Hill/ Friend, Search Coordinator: “It is a little frustrating, especially since the fact that we haven’t found her yet. It should have national attention. It should.” The kidnapping of Elizabeth Smart drew blanket coverage in 2002, though in that case her younger sister actually witnessed a man taking the girl. The national media showed up two years later when Lori Hacking disappeared and her husband Mark became a prime suspect. Lori’s father says he’s surprised they’re not back now. (KLS)

Family of Missing Jennifer Kesse increase Reward by $10,000

The parents of Jennifer Kesse, who has been missing since January, increased the reward by adding $10,000 of their own money. This is actually a separate reward from that of Crimeline. The Kesse family is desperate for tips and has created a separate phone line for tips as well. The new tip line to the Kesse family is (407) 722-2162.

The new reward is not associated with Crimeline or police, and phoned tips about the person of interest will go directly to the Kesse family.

“We are desperate,” father Drew Kesse said. “We need help as a family. Now, the best thing we can do is to try to find this person of interest.”

The family hopes the $10,000 reward and new phone line will appeal to those who may be afraid of going to the police.

“At this point, through the grapevine, I’m sure many people have to know who that person of interest is because people talk,” Joyce Kesse said.

Anyone with information concerning her disappearance is urged to call (800) 423-TIPS (8477).

Anonymous donor Pulling their $100,000 of reward for Missing Jennifer Kesse over Dispute

Jennifer Kesse has been missing since January 23 and now it appears that previously donated reward money to find Jennifer Kesse is being pulled. With a girl missing it is unfortunate that such a conflict exists whereas reward money will soon be pulled from the missing persons case.

An anonymous resident who donated $100,000 of reward money in the Jennifer Kesse missing person case is pulling the cash after a “behind the scenes” conflict with Crimeline, according to a Local 6 News report.

Tuesday, the anonymous donor said the $100,000 will be pulled by March 15. The move is supposed to help the case and force someone to come forward this month.

However, there is a behind the scenes conflict between the anonymous donor and Crimeline, Local 6 reporter Louis Bolden said.

The controversy lies in the condition to collect the reward, according to the report.

The controversy is over the following wording:

The donor has reportedly said from the time the donation was made that the money was to only to be paid if Jennifer Kesse is returned home safely, the report said.

But the money was turned over to Crimeline and the organization offers rewards for information leading to arrests even if the person is not returned.
(Local 6)

Let’s just hope and pray, reward money or not Jennifer Kesse is found safe.
