Make-a-List Monday: Carrying money

April 13, 2015

This list is for people who were or may have been carrying a lot of cash when they were last seen — a minimum of $500, or an unspecified “large amount of cash.” I have decided to include doubtful cases where, say, the husband is a suspect in the wife’s disappearance but he claims she just took a lot of cash and left him. There are a lot of cases like that on this list.

  11. Michael Austin Davis
  12. Vicky Carolyn de Laurier
  13. Albert A. De Mattos, Lucy T. Pacheco‘s companion (he doesn’t have a casefile of his own, since no pictures of him are available)
  14. Julie A. Earley
  15. Maureen Erin Fields
  16. Ruben Gallegos
  17. Chris Robert Giauque

Churning out more lists in advance

April 7, 2015

I make my Make-a-List Monday lists weeks, sometimes over a month in advance. (I really ought to do the same with my Flashback Friday and Select It Sunday entries; that way I wouldn’t keep missing them if I happened to forget or have been away from the computer those days.) Right now I’ve got four lists made up and am working on a fifth, another “really bad photos” list.

Just because the mood has struck me, I thought I’d explain the benefits of these lists. Although the lists often take quite awhile to put together, any one of these reasons would be enough to continue doing them:

  1. I like making them.
  2. They are popular with blog viewers.
  3. They bring often-obscure MPs up to the surface, if only briefly.
  4. When going through casefiles to make a list out of, I tend to notice things like typos (lord knows I have plenty) and then will fix them. (The other day I saw “wants” written instead of “once.” Ouch.)
  5. I also tend to notice cases that look like they should be purged, and will go and check and see.
  6. I also get inspired to research cases I haven’t updated in ages, to see if there’s any new things to add.
  7. I also occasionally find cases in my files that shouldn’t be there anymore, as in they’ve already been resolved, and I had forgotten to remove them.

Working lately on the “really bad photos” lists, I think that one big service NamUs has done is provide much better photos of quite a few MPs. Loads of times I’ll have a grainy, blurry black and white photocopy-of-a-photocopy-of-a-newspaper picture and then NamUs will put up the casefile with a good quality, color version of the same image.

I’m thinking of doing a list of MPs where, while they were searching for the MP, they found someone else’s body instead. I can think of at least two Charley Project cases that meet with that criteria. I’m not sure how to seek out more though.

Make-a-List Monday: Armenians

April 6, 2015

Armenia is a small nation in the south Caucasus region, basically right in the doorway between Europe and Asia, with a population of three million and change. I don’t know much about it, other than that they are more or less perpetually in a state of war with their neighbor Azerbaijan. I read once that, in proportion to the population, Armenia has more PhDs than any other country in the world. Anyway, there’s enough Armenian-Americans on Charley to make a (short) list of them.

  1. Atinui Kevorkian
  2. Gregory James Kuljian
  3. Irma Mkrtchyan
  4. Martin Pogosian
  5. Alexander Haig Tafralian

[ADDENDUM: When I said I didn’t know much about Armenia, I meant modern Armenia, not the Armenia of a century ago, whose people underwent a dreadful ethnic cleansing at the hands of the Turks. That I do know something about, having read a few memoirs by survivors.]

Make-a-List Monday: Really really bad photos, A-E

March 9, 2015
