Cold Case Quest: Alice Laskey, Helen Banner and Carrie Walker

Unfortunately, the elderly are victims of crime more often than anyone would think. It’s almost unthinkable. Who would want to hurt Nana or Pop-pop? The elderly are generally victims of elder abuse (emotional and physical abuse, neglect, financial exploitation, etc.), which I have seen first-hand. Violent crimes against the elderly are slightly less common butContinue reading “Cold Case Quest: Alice Laskey, Helen Banner and Carrie Walker”

Cold Case Quest: Carin Q. White

The picture of Carin White on the Ohio Attorney General website doesn’t really represent her very well. It looks like a mugshot.

She was a human beingContinue reading “Cold Case Quest: Carin Q. White”
