Carnival of the True Crime Blogs XXXIII

Once a week, the bloggers all submit one of their articles from the previous week to a host blog. They may choose that article because they felt a type of attachment to the events that occurred, it may be because they feel they did a good job on the article, or it may be because there is a message they want to get across. All are great writers, and all spend an inordinate amount of time searching for the stories and writing their blog and maintaining them.

It is no secret how proud I am to be member of this blogroll, and that is why I am so pleased and honored to be the Carnival hostess this week.

In no particular order, may I present:

T.O. Crime   The ever adorable Harding has written a couple of fairy tales. Not the type of tales you want to read to your children. But tales that every parent should read. First he has We’re Not Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf-A True Crime Fairy Tale, about “a lad named Chad” but also about how some bloggers saw something wrong and worked to make it right. Then The Wolf and the Seven Kids- Another True Crime Fairy Tale. Besides being an easy read, it has a very good moral that every parent should know.

Next up we have the always enigmatic Trench. Besides The Trenchcoat Chronicles and News of Doom, he also has the ever popular My Crime Space where he explores crimes that have connections to the social networking website world. This week he brings us Sheriff: ‘Morbid Curiosity’ Given as Motive for Killing Teen. About the murder of a 16 year old girl, who should be alive and dancing today.

Next up, we have a brand new blog. The ever entertaining, but very passionate Magnolia and Payned have started a brand new blog called Short Sighted. Have you ever felt the sentence given for a crime seemed- well too easy or too odd? Or didn’t seem to fit the crime that was committed? Well, you will find them there- they have already hit the ground running with their post in the About Short Sighted and Creative Sentencing posts. Some may make you giggle- some may make you say WTH??? All worth reading. Learn what the legal system is up to, and see if you agree.

And from their other blog, we have the story about Jordan, an adorable little 10 year old, failed by more than just her “parents”, harmed by more than just her “parents”, this should never happen to any child.

And last, but certainly not least- we have the insightful ShadoWraiths. As a two part series she brings us the story of the murder of two parents, Trish Dawn Lam, her husband Phuong Hung Le and her son Tommy age 6. But there was a miracle of survival too. Her 10 month old daughter was found badly beaten, but she survived. Police believe that she had been left for dead three days earlier. For more details and additional information on the case, she has written about it in Dead Money and followed with an update Unanswered Questions.

I have been reading and participating in the carnivals for a while now, and I think this is the best one yet.

Thanks you bloggers, for giving me the honor this week.

    Wasn’t easy, but wasn’t as bad as I dreaded, LOL. With time it will get easier and better.
