Ellie Gould was an intelligent 17-year-old girl with a bubbly temperament living in Calne, Wiltshire, located in southwestern England. She had a love for riding horses and dreamed of joining the mounted police one way. At the time, she was dating another boy her age by the name of Thomas Griffiths, a swimmer and rugby player. The couple went way back, having been in each other’s lives since Year 7 and both attended high school together where they were straight-A students. 

On May 2, 2019, Ellie had confided in friends that she had broken off their three-month relationship and that Thomas wasn’t taking it very well. But, truly, the teenage girl hadn’t the slightest clue just how badly her former lover was handling the rejection until the following morning. On May 3, Thomas walked out of school, entered his car, and made the drive to Ellie’s residence on Springfield Drive. Upon entering her house, he pleaded for her to take him back, but Ellie’s mind was already made up. Consumed with rage, he then unleashed a vicious attack that will come to haunt her parents forever. 

Initially, he attempted to strangle her. Then he grabbed a knife from the kitchen and stabbed her in the neck a total of 13 times. After she was dead, he attempted to clean the bloody murder scene using cloths. He wiped the blade of the knife on an apron before sticking it back in her neck, strategically wrapping hand around the knife’s handle so as to make it appear as though it was a suicide. When he went home, he changed into new, clean clothes and disposed of the blood-stained cloths as well as other incriminating items in the woods behind his house. 

To explain the series of scratch marks on his neck inflicted by Ellie’s dire attempt to fight for her life, he told a friend that it was a result of self-harm due to his distress over the breakup. He then went back to school and began shooting texts to the now-deceased girl’s phone asking where she was. Ellie’s body wasn’t discovered until 3pm, when her father returned home, walked into the kitchen, and found her laying in a pool of her own blood–a sight that no parent should ever have to see.

‘’The image of Ellie lying there on the floor has haunted me ever since that afternoon,’‘ said Matthew Gould. ‘’It fills my thoughts when trying to sleep and hijacks my mind when trying to go about my day.’‘

Thomas pleaded guilty for the murder in court and expressed remorse. “I feel confused and angry at myself that I was able to hurt someone so special to me.” He was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 12 years and six months served.

January 23rd 1570 saw Regent Moray shot dead by Hamilton of Bothwellhaugh at Linlithgow, the first assassination by firearm.


Moray, or James Stewart to give him his real name, had become the Regent of Scotland for his young Protestant nephew James VI, in 1567 when his Catholic half-sister Mary, Queen of Scots, abdicated.

While he was a popular Regent with many Scots, Mary’s supporters were seeking to undermine his rule, and following the Regent’s reprisals against one of the opposing clans, the Hamiltons, members of the Hamilton Clan decided to kill Moray.

James Hamilton of Bothwellhaugh began to stalk the Earl of Moray in late 1569, following him from town to town awaiting an opportunity. Hamilton trailed the Regent across much of Northern England and the Borders and through Perth, Glasgow and Stirling, finally finding his perfect opportunity at Linlithgow on 23rd January 1570. The regent was on his way to Edinburgh when Hamilton struck. Moray’s path led him past the Archbishop of St. Andrews’ residence, the Archbishop was a member of the Hamilton Clan and James was able to use one of the residence’s projecting gallery windows as his firing position.

Hamilton’s weapon of choice was an Italian matchlock hunting carbine with a 2 ½ foot long rifled hexagonal barrel. The legend which grew around the assassination holds that Hamilton prepared his firing position by hanging black cloth behind him to hide his shadow and by spreading blankets (or feathers, accounts differ) on the floor to soften his footsteps. The story also describes how Hamilton barricaded the front entrances to the house and had a horse waiting outside. Whether these details are accurate or not is unknown but what is known is that as the Earl of Moray passed in the street below Hamilton fired a single shot killing the Regent.

Hamilton fled on the ‘fast horse he had waiting’ and was closely pursued by the Regent’s bodyguards but managed to evade them and reach safety. He went into exile in France butClan Hamilton suffered brutal reprisals, being declared rebels. Following Moray’s death a string of Regent’s acted on the young James VI’s behalf until he was old enough to take the throne in 1584. James Hamilton himself died, probably still in exile, in 1581.

It is surprising to find that the first assassination with a firearm in recorded history used techniques much the same as a sniper would use today, so another invention, albeit not a good none, that Scots invented the sniper!!

The first pis is an llustration by Walter Paget  from a history of the Scottish People published in 1893. And described as such; James Stewart, 1st Earl of Moray (c. 1531 – 23 January 1570) a member of the House of Stewart as the illegitimate son of King James V, was Regent of Scotland for his half-nephew, the infant King James VI, from 1567 until his assassination in 1570. Moray was assassinated in Linlithgow on 23 January 1570 by James Hamilton of Bothwellhaugh, a supporter of Mary. As Moray was passing in a cavalcade in the main street below, Hamilton fatally wounded him with a carbine shot from a window of his uncle Archbishop Hamilton’s house. It was the first recorded assassination by a firearm. John Knox preached at the funeral.  Knox’s own prohibition of funeral sermons (on the grounds that they glorified the deceased and displayed distinctions between rich and poor) was waived for the occasion.

In other words do as I say, not as I do, typical authoritarian stance!

RIP Joleen Cummings;

may 12, 2018 in fernandina beach, florida, united states. thirty three year old joleen was last seen working her evening shift at a local salon. she was reported missing two days later when she failed to pick up her kids for a mother’s day celebration. in the days leading up to her disappearance, joleen had expressed apprehension about new coworker jennifer sybert, saying that she felt like jennifer wasn’t who she said she was. when authorities located joleen’s car on may 15 in an improvement store parking lot, security cameras showed it being driven by jennifer. upon questioning, it was revealed that jennifer was in fact con woman kimberly kessler, herself a missing woman since 2004. a taxi driver came forward to state that he had driven kimberly from a gas station to the salon late on may 12, and that she looked like she had been in a violent fight. dna evidence at the salon revealed both kimberly and joleen’s blood. in may 2018, kimberly had searched online for joleen’s name over 400 individual times, as well as the phrase “coworker guilty of murder missing person body not found”. kimberly was committed to a psychiatric hospital after she was found incapable of standing trial - though there are calls for more competency tests in the future. joleen’s remains have yet to be recovered.

Murder, She Wrote (1984-96) including South By Southwest (1997), A Story to Die For (2000), The Last Free Man (2001), and The Celtic Riddle (2003)

A writer of murder-mystery fiction becomes embroiled in many murders, burglaries, and attempted killings and takes it upon herself to solve them.

Angela Lansbury was a great choice to lay a TV detective because she’s consistently likable as Jessica Fletcher and there are quite a few very witty lines, particularly when up against insufferable personalities who she plays at their own games. She also creates a character who can cast judgement on people in a way that makes it seem like real justice, however it would have been interesting to have seen an episode in which she’d actually agreed with the killer and how she would have handled it.

Due to there being so many episodes by mostly the same people, the plot structures do get a little repetitious at times since there’s a place the story has to get to in a limited time and only so many ways to get there satisfactorily. Because of this the same methods are often used and clues can be switched almost interchangeably. One of the most common ways the killer gives themselves away is referencing something that only the killer could know, it’s a trope used in many episodes. Many of the characters are also archetypes since a few suspects have to be introduced as quickly as possible and there’s limited time for development. The stories also have to end with Jessica personally cornering the killer and tricking themselves into revealing themselves and confessing despite all the laws against entrapment and none of the killers stick to their bluff.

One good feature about each episode is that the key clue or clues are always available to the audience in each episode. Sometimes they are rather obvious like someone revealing details for no reason, but other times they are more subtle and require a good memory or keen attention to detail. The gimmicks in a few of the later episodes add some welcome variety and could have been made more use of, like the virtual reality episode, or the third film.

The weakest season is easily the seventh because they tried to partially phase out Angela Lansbury which didn’t work well. The replacement detectives weren’t bad but they didn’t quite measure up to Jessica for this series. The last film also wasn’t the best and it’s a shame it didn’t end on something with a bit more closure or gravitas at least, it’s like an ordinary extended episode.

6/10 -Just a cut above average-

-There was one episode which crossed over with Magnum PI (1980-88), it’s the second part of a Magnum PI story, the first of which was included on the bonus features of the dvds.

-The Italian title for the show translates as “The Lady in Yellow” although it’s unclear why as the character rarely wears yellow.

-The word “murder” appears in 48 individual episode titles.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I kinda forgot that I was posting whenever I updated my fic 😅

In the 1920’s there was a heavily publicized case on the death of a homeless man and a man’s wife, who the husband was suspected of killing. The homeless man is briefly identified as a missing person, only for the man himself to disprove that a week later. March 9th, 1921, Joseph Ahrens (the presumed John Doe) says about the body, “He resembles me, remarkably. I can understand how the mistake occurred. There is a resemblance in the eyes and hair. I am going to buy the poor fellow a wreath. I hope they identify him.”

Can you even imagine?? “You thought that guy was me, but SIKE. Gonna buy him flowers though! Poor dude.”
