Carnival of the True Crime Blogs LXXXI

This week I have the distinct honor to host the 81 st Carnival of the True Crime Blogs.

First up we have True Crime Blog UK. TCB UK is featuring Haunting the Highlands: The Murder of Alistair Wilson. The story of a man home with his family, then a knock at the door. The knock changes the lives of the family forever. Truly a haunting mystery- but for the family and friends it is more than a mystery.

Next we have Trench reporting from MyCrimeSpace. This week he is featuring Another VF stalker. On MyCrimeSpace Trench blogs about crimes involving social network sites. This week’s entry is about  a man who met children online, groomed them, and convinced them to meet with him at his home. It sounds like a MySpace story doesn’t it? But there are other social networking sites other than MySpace. The site that was used to meet the children was Vampire Freaks.

Then we have Lost in Lima Ohio. LiLO is featuring “kissing, touching each other while naked and exposing private parts” . All I can really say about this one is how would you treat your 13 year old daughter’s boyfriend?

Children are out of school for the summer and at times it can be hard to keep track of them. When a Child Goes Missing has a post about what you should check first when you notice that one of the children cannot be accounted for. Check out Summer Hiding Places.

Teachers Behaving Badly covers something everyone has contact with at some point. Teachers. You had them when you went to school and if you have kids, you entrust your children to them. But I don’t remember teachers like these. Check out the post School Spirit.

At In Cold Blog they have a post up that discusses mob mentality and makes a comparison of a 1993 rape and murder of two teen girls, with the “honor” murder of a young woman by another mob. Check out Nothing Honorable: The Stoning Death of Du’a Khalil

That’s it for this week edition of the carnival. I hope you enjoy it. And remember to commit a random act of kindness each and every day.

    I started to take a much needed break. But about the time I came back, I began having computer problems. I have a new computer now and once I get it set up hopefully I will be blogging again soon.
