Murder case in French Alps sparks serial killer fears – The Local

Nordahl Lelandais, a former military dog trainer, was charged with the murder of Arthur Noyer, a 24-year-old soldier who was last seen in the early hours of April 12 hitchhiking in the town of Chambery after leaving a nightclub.

Lelandais was previously charged for the abduction and murder in August of an eight-year-old girl named Maelys de Araujo who disappeared from a wedding
only a half-hour drive from Chambery.

“Obviously along with the police, we will be looking into all of the worrying disappearances which have taken place in the region,” prosecutor Thierry Dran told a news conference.

Investigators probing the Maelys case found that Lelandais’ cell phone had been in the same area at the same time as Noyer, who served in France’s elite
mountain infantry before going missing in April.

Lelandais’ black Audi car was also identified

Local Serial Killer To Be Featured On Investigation Discovery

FORT SMITH (KFSM)—Charles Ray Vines is spending his life in prison for two murders in our area. On Wednesday (Aug. 9), his story will air on Investigation Discovery.

The whole case started at a home near railroad tracks off Jenny Lind Road. In 1993, he brutally murdered and raped Juanita Wofford. A short time after that, a similar crime happened just two blocks away from Wofford’s house.

“The one woman who survived, she had been knocked unconscious immediately, so it was felt like the perpetrator thought that she was dead and Juanita Wofford was just brutally stabbed to death,” former prosecutor Ron Fields said.

Fields served as prosecutor of Sebastian and Crawford counties from 1978-1995. Footage from a 5NEWS story in March of 2001 shows Vines being sentenced to life in prison.

“There was a plea bargain,” Fields said. “The new prosecutor elected not to go for the death penalty.”

Fields said police initially arrested

Judge lifts stay in local serial killer’s case

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) — A judge has lifted a stay in the case of convicted serial killer Gary Michael Hilton.

That means his death sentence appeal will likely continue this summer.

The case has been on hold for more than a year after the U.S. Supreme Court declared Florida’s death penalty unconstitutional in January 2016.

Hilton is appealing his death sentence claiming ineffective counsel.

His new defense attorney and a prosecutor from the Florida Attorney General’s office expect to schedule a new evidentiary hearing in the next few months.

Hilton is on death row for the 2007 kidnapping and murder of Crawfordville Sunday school teacher and FSU nurse Cheryl Dunlap.

A jury unanimously recommended Hilton receive the death penalty for it.

A Bullet Hole and a ‘Miracle’: Local Driver Tells of His Close Call with Phoenix’s Serial Street Shooter

The exit hole made by a bullet that passed through a Phoenix resident's car. Police have linked the shooting to the serial killer who has terrorized west Phoenix since March.EXPAND

The Phoenix man who narrowly escaped being killed in July by the Serial Street Shooter doesn’t want his identity revealed.

“I’m just an ordinary young man who experienced an extraordinary miracle,” he says with a grin.

He may be right about that. On July 11, the unknown assailant, who appears to choose his victims at random, riddled the man’s car with bullets at point-blank range in a quiet neighborhood near 30th Street and Thomas Road. One bullet whizzed past the man’s 4-year-old nephew, who was in the passenger seat, before leaving a ragged exit hole on the outside of the door.

Neither of the car’s occupants was hurt.
