CBI updates

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has made a lot of updates to their missing persons page, with more photos, more info on cases, etc. A lot of this was taken from the Charley Project. CBI’s Julie Cunningham page, for example, now has Ted Bundy’s description of her gravesite. They got that from me. Their Teresa Schmidt page has information from me, too. Teresa (Terry) Schmidt is the only MP case I have a personal connection to. She was a good friend’s unofficial foster mother — my friend ran away in high school and moved in with his friend who was Terry’s stepson, and stayed with them until adulthood because his real family didn’t miss him and never bothered to go and get him. That friend provided me with some information about the case that wasn’t published in the papers. Now that info is on the CBI site, without one lick of credit.

I don’t mind people copying Charley information. The more places the info is at, the more useful it is likely to be. Heck, I’m flattered. But it would have been nice if CBI had, like, sent me a thank-you email or something.

    Well, where’d you get the Bundy info? If you’ve got it you can bet the CBI had it too.

      Oh, I’m sure they did, but I know they got the information that they put on the website from my own website. Look at the wording:

      Theirs:
      “Bundy stated that he lured her into his vehicle by posing as an injured skier on crutches and asking her to help carry his ski boots. He claims he knocked her unconscious, drove her to a remote area about eighty miles west of Vail and raped her. He states that he strangled her and then disposed of her body in a shallow grave near Rifle, CO in a high desert area with a circular drive and some large trees.”

      Mine:
      “Bundy stated he lured Cunningham into his vehicle by posing as an injured skier on crutches and asking her to help carry his ski boots…He knocked her unconscious, drove her to a remote area about eighty miles west of Vail and raped her… He strangled her before disposing of her body in a shallow grave near Rife, Colorado. Bundy said the gravesite was in a high desert area with a circular drive and some large trees.”

      Any professor, if this were on a term paper, would have to report the student for plagiarism.

      That information came from a book about NecroSearch, a team of experts that specializes in finding bodies.

    Actually, I was thinking — it might be a good idea to email them and ask for credit where credit is due. By giving you credit, they will also give Charley Project and other MPs more visibility. A win-win all around.
