I was looking at my Facebook photos today and saw one upload that dates back to the Great Headache Crisis days, and it’s actually kind of funny I think. It’s a page of notes I was taking for a history class. (Click on the images for a close-up.) The green was written on a “normal” day. The red was written two days later — the day after I began taking MS Contin (morphine) for the pain. I think you can see why after awhile of that I chose to get off of it.
By me on Executed Today: British infanticide Christiana Bell was executed sometime around November 21, 1721.
I’m a bit late here; this happened back in October. Casey Parsons pleaded guilty to fraud and her husband Sandy was convicted of the same for taking $12,000 in benefits for Erica Parsons after she “ran away from home.”
The couple face sentencing in February and could get up to twenty years in prison. They deserve that, and more.
Out of curiosity I Googled his name to see if there was any recent news in the Adam Herrman case. Well, according to this article, an anonymous donor is offering a reward of $100,000 for an arrest and conviction in his case. This reward was offered back in June and I haven’t seen anything more recent.
This week’s Flashback Friday case is Naomi Wilson, a 32-year-old woman who disappeared from Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 1981. I don’t have much on her, other than that she seemed to have a good life without any reason to disappear. She’d just bought her own home and everything. Yet she seems to have vanished into thin air.
The most recent article I could find that talks about Naomi Wilson is from 2013 and it doesn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know. I wonder if she has family or friends that are still looking for her.
If Naomi is alive, she’d be 66 today.
