You could be right about why they said he didn't sound angry. What I heard was not rage/fury kind of anger, but an angry resentment that this kid was in HIS neighbourhood and clearly up to no good. And darn it, he wasn't going to let him get away with it! That kind of anger.

Oh, most definitely!!!

And I love that name Dexter.

I'd like to join!

My credentials:

I've been interested in real-life crime and murder mysteries. My first addiction began when I read the book "Blind Faith" which was the true story of the death of a Toms River, New Jersey wife/mother. I read this book right after I moved to the same neighborhood in Toms River where the family (victim, perp, and their sons) lived!! Totally freaked me out to be reading a story that included landmarks, restaurants, etc that I had been to.

Then I read about poor Martha Moxley in "Murder in Greenwich" incidently, shortly after moving from NJ to MA.

More recently: DH and I usually watch "48 Hours Mysteries" on Saturday nights.

I don't know WHY I find these stories so interesting because I hate to watch any kind of fiction that includes violence.

I think I find interesting the clues and evidence that the police and FBI use to track down the entire stories around the murders. The DNA evidence; phone calls traced; store receipts; being caught on surveillance video, etc.

I watched almost all of the Casey Anthony trial, and I read along here with you guys. I don't remember whether I posted back then or not.

But I've been reading during the Jodi Arias trial, and now the George Zimmerman, so I might as well fess up and join the crowd.

Do I qualify?

Oh, we need qualifications...

I am very interested in true crime. My family kind of worries about it. I tell them I am following all these cases so I can learn how to commit the perfect crime. These are the people who got caught - I just have to figure out what they did wrong and not do that!

Seriously, I am interested in two things: one is the psychology of the person who commits the crime - why they do it and what goes in a person's mind that makes them think this is a reasonable thing to do? The second is the puzzle-solving aspect - finding the clues and figuring out what they mean.

I followed Casey Anthony (and read here but didn't contribute much) and was really distressed when she got off. Also followed Jodi Arias and read here. I am in Ontario, Canada, and we've had some cases here recently that I followed - one was the abduction and murder of a little eight-year-old girl named Tori. There were some locations in that case very close to my home. (Both of the people involved were convicted.) Also following the case of Tim Bosma, who was selling his truck, took two men out on a test drive, and was murdered. Two people have been arrested but there are lots of mysteries - including two other possibly related deaths.

Will that allow me to stay on the list?

I qualify!

I have every single book ever written about the OJ trial. Every one. They take up one entire shelf of my book case and I won't lend them out. Not that anyone asks. LOL

I've also read all the transcripts and depos posted online at http://walraven.org/simpson/ Best time to be home on maternity leave Hubby teases me I'm on my 15th year of maternity leave.

Hi Seaspray! Welcome!

Well since we are talking credentials...Here is my resume:

1994 - Did a High School report on the JFK Assassination, and couldn't stop reading or researching about it. I now know all there is to know about it and then some by heart.

1994 - Was mezmerised by the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, researched all I could.

1995 - Watched the OJ Simpson trial. At times, skipping classes to go to a friends house to watch.

1997 - began to research other true crime's, specifically the Menendez Brothers.

1999 - Watched the Columbine Massacre unfold on TV while I was in college. Did a report on it for a communications class the following year.

early 2000's -read a book pertaining to the Martha Moxley murder.

In the process of the above, I have also read books or articles pertaining to the following:

Susan Smith
Karla Homolka
Mary Bell (This case scared the heck out of me)
Lizzie Borden
Ted Bundy
and
Dennis Rader

Wow...Looking back now, it sort of seems like I have a thing for the macabre...Really I'm just interested in the ins and outs of the cases. Not so much how they killed, but how they were caught. The details of the forensics and investigations can be quite interesting...

Hopefully after reading my resume, you will allow me entry into this secret society, and not call the cops on me because you think I'm a freak now.

If GZ had his head bashed on the side walk, wouldn't there be blood from his head on the sidewalk?

I think anyone who managed, (and actually survived ), listening to Nurmi, Willy, Sammy or Violet automatically pre-qualifies also ...
