Florida man is sentenced to death for killing his wife and five children by slitting their throats

Posted By Richard Eikelenboom

This is another terrible crime commited by what looks like someone with mental health issues. They should investigate the medication used by this man (also in the past) and his CYP450 to see how he metabolizes drugs. We should find out why parents are committing these horrible crimes.

‘I sleep pretty good at night’: Casey Anthony

Posted By Richard Eikelenboom

This is the latest interview with Casey Anthony published in the Daily Mail.

  • Casey Anthony has spoken to media about her daughter’s death for the first time
  • She was found not guilty of first-degree murder and aggravated manslaughter
  • She insists she does not know how her daughter Caylee died
  • Anthony asked the reporter not to run the run the interview after sitting down to speak on the record five times in the course of one week
  • She says at one point she got in trouble because she is one of the few people who was willing to admit she had lied
  • Anthony now lives with OJ Simpson investigator Patrick McKenna and says she can empathize with the football star, who was accused of murdering his wife

Comment by Richard Eikelenboom

I don’t know what happened in this case, but what I do know that more investigations could have been performed. Touch DNA could have proved who put the tape on the body of Caylee, or left DNA on her clothing and/or other items found at the crime scene. If for instance an unknown sex offender was involved, his DNA could have been found and that would put the case in a different perspective. If in dozens of samples only DNA from Caylee and Casey Anthony was obtained that would be kind incriminating for Casey. In order to prove homicide or other cause, a new investigation about the cause of death would be important.

I don’t think this is the last we hear from this case….

The judge in the Casey Anthony case makes wrong assumption (2017)

Posted By Richard Eikelenboom

Comments by Richard Eikelenboom

In this article from CNN the former judge makes the assumption that the Caylee Marie Anthony was killed by accident with an overdose of chloroform. According to him this was proven by high levels of chloroform in the trunk of her car. Problem is that chloroform is highly volatile and it evaporates quickly. By the time the car was investigated there is no chance that the chloroform would be still present from the incident in which Caylee was killed. In the case against Casey Anthony a lot questions were left open. There was no cause and time of death. There was no proper touch DNA investigation performed and evidence was contaminated. Selma and I worked for the defense in this case and the defense requested the evidence for a touch DNA investigation.

This investigation was blocked by the DA and this judge. I am always suspicious of parties who want block DNA investigations. We see that a lot in miscarriages of justice. There are strong indications that there is something wrong with the evidence or the trial and the DA’s are fighting against new DNA investigations. If you have nothing to hide and you are sure Casey did kill her child: Give us the evidence!! The touch DNA could have hurt the defense case if she was the only person involved in this incident. By blocking the touch DNA investigation the DA and the judge prevented the only chance of the truth to come out…..

Holly Moore case gets international attention

Posted By Richard Eikelenboom

The Daily Mail picked up the Holly Moore case.

The case does now get international attention. It is a pity though that not more facts are mentioned in the article. That a pathologist cut a collar bone at one side as a normal procedure is ridiculous. Her left hand was caught in the strangulation cord. On pictures before the autopsy a dent is visible on her collar bone. She had several other injuries on her face which are not explained well with suicide. Furthermore, the strangulation mark was horizontal instead of vertical which one would expect with a hanging. These facts should be enough to investigate this case as a homicide.  We are waiting on a report with results of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. They never requested the evidence we collected, which is not a good sign considering that the crime scene investigation was performed poorly.

Here is another article with more information.

Another tragic case in which the medication did not help: Comment by Richard Eikelenboom

Posted By Richard Eikelenboom

Depressed’ father-of-two hedge fund executive, 47, commits suicide by jumping out of the window of his ninth-floor luxury apartment

In this article a suicide is described. The quote below is from this article.

‘The family is hysterical. He was under a lot of meds. He did not give a specific reason why he jumped, but he was depressed,’ the source said.”

I don’t know the specifics behind this case, but we can conclude that the medication did not work because the victim killed himself. What we see a lot in our homicide and suicide cases is that people commit the homicide and suicides after they are exposed to medication, like antidepressants. Often it is mentioned, like in the article above that the victim/perpetrator was depressed. So that should be the explanation for the suicide of homicides. Not a lot of people put question marks behind the medications used and that is weird the medication should help the patient. Clearly that is often not the case. We found that some people are not able to metabolize certain types of medication, which can lead to suicide and homicide. People should be tested on their CYP450 before they take anti-depressants or other heavy medications. I think medical doctors should question medication more often and look if it does more harm than good………
