Elizabeth Smart kidnapper Brian David Mitchell leaves Utah for federal prison

SALT LAKE CITY — After more than eight years in custody in the state of Utah, jail officials confirmed Wednesday that convicted kidnapper Brian David Mitchell is en route to federal prison.

Salt Lake County Sheriff's Lt. Michael Deniro, a spokesman for the jail, said Mitchell was transferred out of the Salt Lake County Jail by federal marshals Wednesday.

Though Mitchell became known for his courtroom antics, Mitchell apparently didn't cause any problems in jail.

"He has not been a behavioral problem for us during his stay," Deniro said.

He also said Mitchell's tenure in the county facility came at a low cost as "federal prisoners are fully paid for by the federal government."

“Steve was very proud of his stash of porn magazines he kept in a locked cabinet in his bedroom. He showed them to me when he lived at his previous Puyallup home,” Sandy said.

Last fall Sandy said Steve boasted that he still had the pair of Susan’s very sacred Mormon Temple Garment underwear that he stole from the dirty laundry when she and Josh lived at his house at the beginning of their marriage.

“Not only did he stash her underwear in his locked bedroom cabinet, he said he stashed her pictures, journals, and porn in there too,” Sandy said.

“In fact,” she said, “when police went to search his house last fall they missed it – Steve told me they never even looked in his locked cabinet so he still has her private belongings, including her underwear.

Father of Leibby Kletzky Sues Accused Killer and His Father for $200 Million


Published August 30, 2011
| NewsCore
The father of the Brooklyn boy who was kidnapped and butchered after he got lost leaving day camp wants the accused killer and his father to pay for the horrendous crime -- to the tune of $200 million, the New York Post reports.
Calling the murder of 8-year-old Leibby Kletzky "one of the most horrific crimes in the history of the County of Kings," Nachman Kletzky filed suit seeking $100 million in punitive damages from Levi Aron, who is charged with Leibby's gruesome murder, and the same amount from his dad, Jack Aron, in whose house the boy was allegedly murdered and his body dismembered.
"What's driving the lawsuits is a sense of justice and to compensate the family as best we can," Kletzky's lawyer, Mark Goldsmith, said after filing the two suits in Brooklyn Supreme Court. "The acts are horrific and horrendous, and the level of damages should reflect that."

Lawyer: Peterson a ‘hostage’ of prosecutors’ court appeals

Story Image

Drew Peterson

Updated: August 31, 2011 2:22AM



CHICAGO — Drew Peterson’s attorneys have asked the Illinois State Supreme Court to order the former police officer released from jail where he has been held for more than two years on charges of murdering his third wife, saying prosecutors’ appeal to the same court over hearsay evidence has violated his right to a speedy trial.

“It’s a matter of fundamental fairness,” said the 57-year-old Peterson’s lead attorney Joel Brodsky, who said he mailed the appeal to the court Monday night.

Peterson, a retired Bolingbrook police sergeant, has been in jail since 2009.

His trial in the drowning death of ex-wife Kathleen Savio, originally scheduled to begin in July of last year, has been on hold since prosecutors appealed a judge’s decision to bar them from presenting statements Savio allegedly made about him before her body was discovered in a dry bathtub in 2004.

BLOOMINGTON - Volunteers gathered in Bloomington Sunday to spread the word about still-missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer. It's an effort to keep this case in the forefront, the day before students head back to class.

As new faces descend upon IU this semester, a now-very familiar one will greet them.

"She's so much more than that girl on the poster. She's our daughter. We love her dearly. We're not going to walk away. We're going nowhere," said Lauren's mom, Charlene.

In fact, the search for Spierer is being refreshed and renewed in Bloomington. With new posters in hand, volunteers and students hit the pavement to make sure Lauren's picture can't be missed, that her message can't be ignored.

"I mean this could happen to anyone," said IU sophomore Gabi Cohen.

"I would want everyone to help if it was one of my close friends or family, so I think anything we can do to help is just great," added IU sophomore Maddie Kaufman.

"(Students) hear things. They know things. We're hoping that by getting the message out that Lauren's still missing, someone will come forward, give us a piece of information, something they heard. We desperately need it," said Lauren's dad, Robert Spierer.

A 30-year-old Thibodaux man accused of decapitating his 7-year-old disabled son last week was indicted by a Lafourche grand jury Friday morning.

Jeremiah Wright, 414 W. Seventh St., allegedly confessed to investigators shortly after the head of his son, Jori Lirette, was found on the side of the road by a passing driver, investigators said.

Wright was indicted on a first-degree murder charge. If convicted, he faces mandatory life in prison and is eligible for the death penalty.

Search for Holly Bobo now a full-time job for her family




Parsons, TN -

(WMC-TV) - As the search for missing nursing student Holly Bobo continues, her family is still leading the effort to bring her home.

The search has taken its toll on the Bobo family. Just over four months after Bobo disappeared, her family's lives have been turned upside down.

At the Bobo house, the TV never comes on. Dinner, once spent at the table as a family, now comes as late as midnight because the search takes priority.

"Now all I do is search for my sister," said her brother, Clint Bobo.

Once a social work student at the University of Tennessee Martin, Clint Bobo has now taken up the search for his sister full time. The 25-year-old is the last person known to have seen Holly Bobo as she was being led into the woods on their property by a man in camouflage.

Instead of attending classes, Clint Bobo travels to neighboring towns and states passing out flyers in hopes it leads to a breakthrough.
