Charley Project mentioned in master’s thesis

A Dutch woman named Nathalie Swinkels wrote to me to say she’d mentioned, and cited, my site several times in her master’s thesis, Stay Away From Missing Persons’ Cases On The Internet: Should managers and users of missing persons’ websites be afraid of copyright infringement and defamation?

It’s a very interesting thesis actually. It turns out the author’s been following the Charley Project and my blog for years.

Another ET post: Harvey DeBerry

Child rapist, or attempted rapist, or whatever. Harvey DeBerry was hanged in Tennessee on this day in 1897. He was convicted of “assault and battery upon a female under ten years of age, with intnet to unlawfully and carnally know her.” His victim was his employers’ seven-year-old daughter, Elenora Eigiman. DeBerry was the first person in the county to be convicted of that particular crime, which had the same punishment as rape.
