Murderabilia Investigation | Crime Watch Daily




I investigate a disturbing yet thriving business called "Murderabilia": People buying and selling everything from autographs to paintings done by serial killers.
Even though the practice is legal, is it moral?
Do you think there should be restrictions on so-called "murderablia" sales?
This week my three part investigation into this market is aired on Crime Watch Daily. My inspiration to dive into this dark market was my own father writing to me with the request to sell his paintings from prison, which I declined. It did get me thinking about who would sell a serial killer's artwork? Then later I discovered more than just artwork is being sold.

MOMS OF MISSING WOMEN UNITE | CRIME WATCH DAILY




I found a strength in this unique group of mothers uniting to find answers for the whereabouts of their missing daughters.

Despite the local law enforcement remaining silent about a potential serial killer in their small town of 21,000, they spoke up! To help, I enlisted CRIME WATCH DAILY to bring a large platform to raise their concerns nationally about what is happening in Chillicothe, Ohio. 

We even got this story on to PEOPLE.COM! Big thanks to them! My prayers and thoughts remain with these families as they seek answers and justice. 

HEATHER THE HERO | CRIME WATCH DAILY





On my birthday in July this past summer, a chilling story came out across the local news in Charlestown, West Virgina, that a woman killed the suspected serial killer, Neal Falls. The lady, named Heather, may have also saved many lives as a result. Her community has dubbed her, "Heather the Hero". Here is my exclusive sit down interview with Heather on CRIME WATCH DAILY.COM 
One day Heather, an escort working alone, invites the ultimate darkness to her very doorstep in a terrifying encounter with a man who wants only one thing for his pleasures. Charlestown, West Virgina, is a picturesque town with some rough edges. But like anywhere the red-light district extends to the Internet, where heather places an ad on a local website making herself available for a date.
Soon after that she gets an early-morning call. It seems like business as usual -- but with a twist. Seven hours later her long awaited date arrives, and he gets right down to business.Within seconds the arranged date plunges into a nightmare -- with Heather battling for her life.

DINING ROOM DECORATING

{Source: Tracery Interiors }

Sometimes it is hard for me to come up with the perfect "look" and "feel" for a space. (Staring at the room doesn't help either.)

Pinterest, has been my best decorating friend lately. A pin popped up on my wall that I instantly knew would be the solution to my current dining room needs. It came from the Southern Living Idea House 2012.

To see the video tour of the house click here.

I wanted my dining room to be casual, comfortable, pretty and timeless.

Check, check, check!

Plus, I could buy this room from Ballard's, and Ikea and not have to search stores for replicas (unless it's out of my budget)

Shopping List:

Ballard's Sofia Settee $1249

Ballard's Winged Chair $571.00 x 2 in Oatmeal Fabric

Next I'll need two side chairs...

Ballard's Gramercy Upholstered Chair $459.00 x 2

I did find chairs similar at World Market for $179.99 each Linen Hayden Dining Chair

Rug: Ikea TARNBY $99.00

Lantern: Ballard's Design Calisse 4 Light Lantern $349.00

In the editorial picture they took out the side chairs and replaced them with Ballard's Wood Plank Storage Benches $449.00 each.

Hope you are as inspired as me! New dining room on it's way....
