The Crime & Clues is an online magazine of sorts that offers in-depth articles on
crime-scene investigation, death investigation (pathology, anthropology, and entomology), and a discussion forum. This searchable site also contains authoritative information on physical, testimonial, and behavioral evidence, as well as links to law enforcement and unsolved crimes sites.
This site explores the emerging field of forensic entomology—how insects can be used in forensic science. The site provides links to similar sites,
as well as a database of forensic entomologists worldwide, a bookstore, and a message board.
This page describes the Innocence Project, a group of Cardozo Law School
students and attorneys who volunteer their time to review hundreds of cases of inmates
claiming they have been falsely incarcerated. Where appropriate, the project arranges
for DNA tests that may lend support to the convictsÕ claims of innocence.
BooksMockery of Justice:
The True Story of the Sheppard Murder Case
by Cynthia L. Cooper & Sam Reese Sheppard
New York: Penguin, 1997
In this book, co-authored with attorney and journalist Cynthia Cooper,
the son of Dr. Sam Sheppard tells the story of the Sheppard murder case as he sees it—namely,
that his father was innocent and that the late Richard Eberling, a former window washer at
the Sheppard home, was the likely murderer. This Web site's chronology
was adapted from this paperback edition.
The Sheppard Murder Case
by Paul Holmes
New York: David McKay Co., 1961
In the Foreword to this book, Erle Stanley Gardner says it is a
"fact-studded history of a case which years after its official ending continues to hold
the public interest." Like Mockery of Justice, it propounds the view that Dr. Sam
Sheppard was unjustly tried and convicted.
