Squeaked in my first update of the year

Got some updates served nice and hot for you — all thanks to several people who emailed me recently with links to articles etc. I hadn’t known about. No new cases, but ten updated ones and one resolved case. No fewer than SIX of them are murder-without-a-body cases.

(I got into a dispute online a few days ago with some guy who said nobody should be prosecuted for murder without the victim’s body. I got very angry about it, actually. I hadn’t realized I felt so strongly on the subject. After a few exchanges in the comments section of an article, I gave up talking to him because it was clear I would never be able to convince him. Oh, well.)

I look forward to the coming year of adding, updating and — best of all — resolving cases.

    What is that weight loss pill ad that keeps popping up whenever I go to the Updates page? It’s yellow and shows up at the top of the page. I don’t remember ever seeing ads on Charley, and I also have AdBlock so I don’t know why it’d be showing up.

    (Also, the update shows up as January 1, 2015)

      The ad at the top says “Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015! [Click here to visit]”

      When I click on it, it redirects me to the site for some weight loss pill called Forskolin.

        I have no idea. I certainly didn’t put it there. I don’t see it on Google Chrome, but only on IE.

    I’m seeing it, too. Thought I had a virus or something, but maybe not.

    I am one to believe strongly that if evidence fits- especially if they find enough blood to determine the person could no longer be alive- that they should be prosecuted without one. I am not seeing this ad on the main page though FYI 🙂

      It seems to me that refusing to prosecute someone for murder just because there’s no body is like refusing to prosecute a person for robbery just because by the time they were arrested they’d already spent all the money they stole.

    I’m seeing the banner as well. I was wondering if you had sold some add space. If you didn’t, then you’ve been hacked and need to wipe it.

      It is most peculiar. I will speak to my host about it.
