Soon to be a Showtime documentary, Murder in the Bayou is a New York Times bestselling chronicle of a high-stakes investigation into the murders of eight women in a troubled Southern parish that is “part murder case, part corruption exposé, and part Louisiana noir” (New York magazine). Between 2005 and 2009, the bodies of eight women were discovered in Jennings, Louisiana, a bayou town of 10,000 in the Jefferson Davis parish. The women came to be known as the Jeff Davis 8, and local law enforcement officials were quick to pursue a serial killer theory, stirring a wave of panic across Jennings’ class-divided neighborhoods. The Jeff Davis 8 had been among society’s most vulnerable—impoverished, abused, and mired with mental illness. They engaged in sex work as a means of survival. And their underworld activity frequently occurred at a decrepit motel called the Boudreaux Inn. As the cases went unsolved, the community began to look inward. Rumors of police corruption and evidence tampering, of collusion between street and shield, cast the serial killer theory into doubt. But what was really going on in the humid rooms of the Boudreaux Inn? Why were crimes going unsolved and police officers being indicted? What had the eight women known? And could anything be done do stop the bloodshed? Mixing muckraking research and immersive journalism over the course of a five-year investigation, Ethan Brown reviewed thousands of pages of previously unseen homicide files to posit what happened during each woman’s final hours delivering a true crime tale that is “mesmerizing” (Rolling Stone) and “explosive” (Huffington Post). “Brown is a man on a mission...he gives the victims more respectful attention than they probably got in real life” (The New York Times). “A must-read for true-crime fans” (Publishers Weekly, starred review), with a new afterword, Murder in the Bayou is the story of an American town buckling under the dark forces of poverty, race, and class division—and a lightning rod for justice for the daughters it lost.

The biggest and best collection of unsolved murder and mystery cases - updated and expanded. This compelling volume presents thirty-five of the most intriguing crime cases that still defy solution, as reported by leading authors and journalists in the field of crime writing. Expanded and updated, this new edition includes the mystery of 'Jack the Stripper' who preyed on prostitutes in Hammersmith in the 1960s, the death of Starr Faithful whose young body was found on Long Island, the vicious murder of Oxford nurse Janet Brown in her own home in 1995, and the case of Lizzie Borden who, according to the rhyme, 'took an axe, And gave her mother forty whacks'. Other cases include: Colin Wilson and the 'Zodiac' killer of California; Russell Miller and the obsession with the Black Dahlia; Rebecca West on the killing of Stanley Setty, and the man who contracted out of humanity; Brian Masters on the killing of Rachel Nickell; Kenneth Alsop on who shot 'Jake' Lingle, and his connection with Al Capone; Philip Sugden on that most famous Victorian enigma, Jack the Ripper; Sydney Horley on the woman who was cleared of killing her husband, and went on to become a Broadway star. Nearly all the cases involve one or more acts of murder, and all are left with a question mark hanging over them with real-life whodunits that offer a continuing challenge to all who find fascination in the criminal mind.

This fourth edition of the conference focused mainly on noise and fluctuations at the nanometer scale in electron devices, bio-materials, and mesoscopic systems. Since the first conference, the aim of the UPoN conferences is to provide a forum for researchers working on noise and fluctuations, where they can present and discuss their scientific problems with particular attention to those which resist solutions. Topics include: Theoretical frontiers on noise and fluctuations; experimental frontiers on noise and fluctuations; enhanced and suppressed shot noise; noise and coherence; noise and chaos; constructive role of noise; noise in biological systems; noise in devices; and noise in complex systems and non-Gaussian fluctuations.

What constitutes historical truth is often subject to change. Joe Nickell demonstrates the techniques used in solving some of the world's most perplexing mysteries, such as the authenticity of Abraham Lincoln's celebrated Bixby letter, the 1913 disappearance of writer and journalist Ambrose Bierce, and the apparent real-life model for a mysterious character in a novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Nickell also uses newly uncovered evidence to further investigate the identity of the Nazi war criminal known as ""Ivan the Terrible.""

Powerful explosions rocked three underground trains in London in the morning of July 7, 2005. Another explosion occurred shortly later on a double-decker bus at Tavistock Square. Fifty-two people reportedly died in the explosions and over 700 were wounded. Numerous individuals lost limbs in the explosions. The deadly operation manifested careful planning and coordination. Four young British Muslims were named as the suicide-bombers. In this book, the official account on the London Transport bombings will thoroughly examined. How was that account established? How reliable was the evidence? Was the account coherent? How were the suspects identified? Who gained by this mass-murder? We demonstrate that the British authorities (a) did not allow a investigation; b) did not produce conclusive evidence that the four accused died in the bombings and intended to kill themselves; (c) failed to prove that the explosives were home-made; (d) failed to carry out autopsies; (e) failed to explain why security cameras did not work precisely at that time; (f) failed to explain the difficulties in counting the dead; (g) failed to explain why their timeline was wrong; (h) failed to explain the simultaneous holding of an anti-terror exercise based on the scenario of the real attacks; (i) failed to explain what happened at Canary Wharf on the morning of 7/7. Due to the death of the four suspects, no trial took place. The authorities did not have, therefore, to prove the suspects' guilt under due process. To designate the suspects as terrorists is thus unconscionable. Justice remains elusive. The victims of this odious attack and the British public continue to be deprived of the truth on the events. For these reasons, suspicions of state complicity in the crime will continue to fester until an independent commission of inquiry will revisit the facts and establish the truth.
