I thought it’d be cool to share some pre-production work that I did when I was working on my film, ‘Dodoba’. Most of these sketches and development drawings were made over the course of 3-4months while I was working on the story while some of them were made during production! 

Here’s the link to the film if you haven’t seen it yet!

Despite killing over 30 women, Ted Bundy only ever faced two strenuous murder trials, both spaced within three years. His first trial date was set for June 25, 1979, in Miami. This particular court case centered on the brutal attacks on the Chi Omega sorority sisters. The second trial was to take place on January, 1980, in Orlando, where Bundy would be tried for the murder of 12-year-old Kimberly Leach. Both of the trials would end in unexpected disaster for the promising Law student, however it would be the Chi Omega murder trial that would seal his fate forever.

Amanda Knox murder conviction annulled

In a stunning turn in a legal saga that has lasted more than seven years, Italy’s high court has not only rejected the convictions of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, it has annulled them and declined to order another retrial.

After 10 hours of deliberations, the ruling closes the case, and Knox and Sollecito are free without fear of charges or, in Knox’s case, extradition to Italy.

Guess what? She gave him a few suggestions

A man accused of killing his roommate in Gainesville, Fla., told the Siri application on his iPhone that he needed “to hide my roommate” on the day the two men were last seen together.

Siri’s joking reply has now taken on a sinister twist. “What kind of place are you looking for?” the app asked back. “Swamps? Reservoirs? Metal foundries? Dumps?”

This evidence was presented Tuesday in the trial of Pedro Bravo, who is charged with drugging and strangling Christian Aguilar after an argument over Bravo’s ex-girlfriend, whom Aguilar had been dating.

Detectives have been reviewing Bravo’s phone for clues, and found his request to Siri, made on Sept. 20, 2012, when the two men were captured by a surveillance camera outside a Gainesville Best Buy store.

Gainesville Police Department detective Matt Goeckel said the flashlight on Bravo’s phone had also been used on nine occasions that night, for a total of 48 minutes, and its location points don’t match where Bravo said he was.

Aguilar’s remains were found three weeks later, about 60 miles away.

The trial is expected to be concluded later this week.

Revisiting the O.J. Simpson saga, 20 years later

Twenty years ago this week, O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman, were found dead, stabbed to death in a bloody scene on the front steps of her condo in west Los Angeles. Simpson, a pro football Hall of Famer turned television and movie star, almost immediately was shrouded in suspicion, and thus began one of the most sensational crime stories of the modern age, one that still divides much of the nation.

Every twist and turn of the case seemed as if it could have been scripted by Hollywood, from the slow-speed chase of a white Ford Bronco carrying a reportedly suicidal Simpson down the San Diego Freeway to the moment during his trial when the ex-football star struggled to fit his hands inside bloody gloves allegedly worn by his ex-wife’s killer. “If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit,” Simpson’s lawyer, Johnnie Cochran, later intoned, a line that has lived on in pop culture infamy.

Here are some of the memorable moments and images of the O.J. Simpson saga, which began June 12, 1994. (Holly Bailey/Yahoo News)

ST. PAUL, February 1st, 2013 – Dr. Steven Symes gingerly pinched the lumbar bones of the 33-inch-long model human skeleton with one hand and pointed to its rib cage with the other.

Standing in front of jurors at John Oldson’s first-degree murder trial Friday, he showed where Cathy Beard had sustained crushing injuries to her ribs.

Then he pointed out where a massive blow struck her face.

And where he said he found evidence of two stab wounds to her back on bones around the spinal column.

Jurors got a lesson in forensic anthropology from Symes, an associate professor at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa., who got his start in the early 1980s at the University of Tennessee Anthropological Research Facility.

The groundbreaking facility uses donated human bodies to study how they decompose and is better known as the Body Farm.

But, Symes said, “we weren’t allowed to call it that.”

He came to Nebraska to provide expert testimony for prosecutors.

His conclusion: Beard, who disappeared May 31, 1989, from the Someplace Else Tavern in Ord and whose remains were found nearly three years later out in the country some six miles away, did not die of natural causes.

“No, this is what I’d call a violent death. Traumatic death. Let’s call it that,” he said.

His testimony came on the fourth day of evidence in the trial. 

Coming up on the 24th anniversary of Beard’s disappearance, the case is one of the oldest cold cases in the state to go to trial.

And, while the state has not theorized yet how it believes Oldson killed Beard, opening statements made the motive clear: Rejection.

Assistant Attorney General Matt Lierman said Oldson, then 22, got upset with Beard and killed her after she turned him down in the alley outside the tavern that night. Several bar patrons had spotted them leaving together.

Oldson has denied it from the beginning.

In an interview with police two days after her disappearance, he admitted she walked out with him but said she left in someone else’s pickup after she turned him down for sex.

In December 2011, Symes examined Beard’s exhumed remains to give Nebraska investigators and prosecutors his opinion on the story her bones told.

“When you’re looking at a body long after death, you’re missing a lot of facts,” he said.

Symes said he likes to be conservative in the calls he makes, but he saw enough in what to some may have looked like nicks, scrapes and cracks to strongly indicate foul play.

Symes said Beard’s injuries didn’t appear to be from a car-pedestrian crash, which often leaves broken bones above the ankle when a driver brakes and the bumper lowers. 

What if a driver had sped up to try to hit her, asked defense attorney Jim Mowbray, planting the seed of an alternate theory.

The anthropologist said some of the injuries – like the cracked skull and crushed ribs – could have come that way.

But it wouldn’t explain the stab wounds he found to her back, Symes said.

Trial is set to continue Monday.

Outcome: John Oldson Sentenced Life-to-Life in Prison for 1989 Cathy Beard Murder

Missouri man wrongfully convicted of murder has his conviction overturned. Ryan Ferguson will finally be set free after a decade in prison for a crime that no one can prove he committed.

A state appeals court panel on Tuesday overturned the murder conviction of a Missouri man who has maintained his innocence while serving a 40-year sentence for the 2001 slaying and robbery of a newspaper sports editor.

The appeals court ruled that the prosecutor’s office withheld evidence from defense attorneys for Ryan Ferguson that could have aided him during his trial for the strangling and beating death of Columbia Daily Tribune sports editor Kent Heitholt.

“Under the facts and circumstances of this case, we conclude that Ferguson did not receive a fair trial. His verdict is not worthy of confidence,” Western District appeals court Judge Cynthia Martin wrote in the 3-0 decision.

Ryan Ferguson, has been in jail since 2005.

Dr. Drew elaborated by saying that borderline personality disorder use a style of emotional  regulation called (projective identification)  to mean I have a horrible feeling inside of me, so horrible I can’t touch it, but I can inject that feeling into you, thus, borderline are terribly manipulative, they literally  can make you feel what they don’t want to feel and then they manipulate you as a way of manipulating their own feelings. We either idolize someone or devalue them to a T, sometimes there is NO middle.
