My Life as a Crime Scene Cleaner

“I felt pain in my heart for this man. It’s sad when someone leaves this earth, but the ones left behind are the most affected. We are the ones who go on living…and remembering.” What is left in the silent moments after the grim reaper has come and gone? The author of Bloodstains and Ball Gowns: My Life as a Crime Scene Cleaner discovers the answer once she leaves a glamorous life in the beauty industry to begin her ‘secret life’ in the underworld of crime scene cleaning. She enters a world that tells what happens in the neighborhood when the sun goes down, when blood is spilt and lives are lost. Her world becomes one of caravan parks, views of dried grass and withered trees through smashed windows, and the blood, gore and aftermath of tragedies when love goes wrong. Her job is to make it look as though it never happened.

Trial begins for man accused of killing girlfriend’s abuser – WBRZ.com

ZACHARY – Opening statements began Monday in the Jace Crehan murder trial. He’s accused of the 2015 murder of Robert Noce, the man convicted of molesting his girlfriend.

“I want you to think about choices and I want you to think about consequences,” was the opening line for the prosecution.

Meanwhile, Crehan’s defense team compared his case to a modern-day Romeo and Juliet. Crehan and his lover, Brittany Monk, are both charged in Noce’s death, however she pleaded guilty to manslaughter, a lesser charge.

They’re accused of killing Noce and stuffing him inside a barrel.

Monk was repeatedly sexually abused as a child by Noce, according to the prosecution and court records. He was sentenced to five years probation for abusing Monk, one month before he was found dead, inside of a barrel at his home.

Criminal defence lawyers need to be included in mental health conversation

Anyone who spends time in Canada’s criminal courts can tell you it is nothing like you see on television. Rarely are there Matlock moments where a case is solved with one well-timed question. There is drama and excitement in court but this is usually broken up by long periods of dull procedural and legal argument. But television gets one thing right – the evidence presented in court can often be gruesome and disturbing.  

The impact of graphic courtroom evidence was made plain last week at the House of Commons standing committee on justice and human rights. The committee is studying the toll that this type of evidence can take on the mental health of jurors.

Police called to Newcastle town centre discovered the woman had been knocked out and suffered nasty injuries and was so distressed she could not describe her attacker.

But they searched for clues while supporting the victim and discovered the bloodied rapist acting suspiciously near the town’s former Maxims nightclub.
