Welcome to Mystery Crime Blog

In 1998, if someone had told me I would be spending the next eight years of my life involved in injustice, I would have said "You are stark raving mad!". Well, I am here to eat those words.

In 1997, a friend was telling me about twin sisters, Betty Wilson and Peggy Lowe, from Alabama who were arrested and tried for supposedly hiring an alcoholic, drug addict con-man, James Dennison White, to kill Betty's wealthy husband, Dr. Jack Wilson, who was a very well-liked and well-known eye doctor in Huntsville. Both sisters were tried on the same evidence and lying testimony. Betty was convicted and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole because she was a rich bitch and slept with a black man in Alabama. Peggy, the saintly one, was acquitted. The convicted con-man, who never really admitted to killing the doctor, has come up for parole several times but is still incarcerated.

After spending six years studying this case including both trial transcripts, putting up an extensive website (http://hankford.com/bettywilson) and spending the remaining two years putting together a book about this case Killer For Hire - The Final Chapter of the Alabama Twins Murder Case, I, as many others, believe that the real killer of the doctor is walking around free. Neither of the twin sisters had a motive to have the good doctor put away but the doctor's ex-wife and son did.

As time permits, I hope to present other similar cases of injustice along with information on books, movies, TV shows, video games, etc., related to mystery crime. In the meantime please visit http://mysterycrimescene.com/.

The Mystery/Crime of Mascara & Obama

Sunday, February 28, 2010

The words mystery and/or crime can be used to describe almost anything. Take for example mascara commercials. Don’t you think it is a crime that these advertisers think consumers are so stupid that they believe that the advertisers’ 10X or 12X voluminous mascara is going to produce the big fat eyelashes as demonstrated by their beautiful models when it is so obvious that the model is sporting big fat FALSE eyelashes? The mystery is how do they get away with this false advertising? I read somewhere that to make this a legitimate advertisement all they have to do is show at the bottom of the screen in small print that the model is wearing FALSE eyelashes. The following video is an example of a mascara advertisement. If you can keep your eyes off the two pounds of false eyelashes, you might see “Eva’s eyes styled with lash inserts” zip by on the bottom of the screen. A truer statement would be "Eva's eyes styled with big fat false eyelashes."

Another mystery is Uncle Brown Sugar a.k.a. Barrack Obama. I have been mystified about the fact this man said during his campaign that he had been in all 57 states except Alaska and Hawaii. Watch the following video if you don’t believe me.

To add to this Obama mystery, he recently referred to Corps man (core man) as Corpse man. Again, if you don’t believe me watch this video.

I have been giving some serious thought to this Obama mystery and the only thing I can come up with is he must be a humanoid from outer space whose computer programming has developed a short circuit in it. Of course, the 57 states might have been a typo on his teleprompter but he did pause as if he were searching his memory banks for the correct answer.

Obama’s crime? Like most politicians you can’t believe a word his says.

Oh, for those of you in Banquette, Texas, Uncle Sugar is another word for Uncle Sam. It is the concept that Uncle Sam is everyone's pimp because he takes his share of your money before you get your share. I just added brown to Uncle Sugar. I hope this is not considered racist or profiling 'cause I like brown sugar.

What are your off-the-wall concepts of mystery and/or crime?

Innocent in Prison

Monday, February 8, 2010

In 1996 I began working for Betty Wilson, an innocent woman incarcerated in Alabama. Actually I thought it would be a fairly easy task, writing letters and following all leads, to get this poor woman out of prison. As I began what turned out to be an up-hill battle for her never to happen release, I began to see just how many innocent people slip through of cracks in the justice system. Everyday in this country people are tried and convicted on their character alone, just as Betty Wilson had been, having no EVIDENCE at all. In Betty's case, she had an affair with a black man in Alabama and in the mind of the jury she had to be guilty of conspiring to have her husband killed. Something has to happen to a judicial system that is hell bent on putting ANYONE in prison that the dectives zero in on, even if there is no evidence.I once spoke to four prosecutors in different states and asked if they had ever made the crime fit the person and all admitted they had at least once BUT although they knew that person had not done THAT crime, they knew they had commited other crimes!!
