  • Nothing too "big" name recently. We live in Coldwater, MI, and my uncle is getting a new trial for the murder of my aunt. Foley trial.

    Also, we had Jack Kevorkian in our local prison and there was a big to-do with the media when he was released. He's dead now, I think.

  • Yes it was my 2nd cousin who was the murderer :( Micheal Gentile killed Melissa Gosule in Pembroke Massachusetts. It was very sad but I didn't really know him.

  • she was never cleared
    i think she was not guilty
    i think her cop husband did it or had a cop friend do it
    the kids said certain it was a man dressed as woman

  • i live in Tampa, so none that happened in my area that i'm aware of. But our local news channel does show the highlights of the casey anthony trial on the evening news. i pretty much leave In Session on all day though and catch bits and pieces of it. the judge ruled that she's competent enough to stand trial... very interesting.
