Vidocq Society

Wikipedia

Link

The Vidocq Society is a members-only crime-solving club that meets on the third Thursday of every month in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Vidocq Society is named for Eugène François Vidocq, the ground-breaking 19th century French detective who helped police by using the psychology of the criminal to solve “cold case” homicides. Vidocq was a former criminal himself, and used his knowledge of the criminal mind to look at murder from the psychological perspective of the perpetrator. At meetings, Vidocq Society Members (VSMs) listen to local law enforcement officials from around the world who bring in cold cases for review.

VSMs are forensic professionals; current and former FBI profilers, homicide investigators, scientists, psychologists, prosecutors and coroners who use their experience to provide justice for investigations that have gone cold. Members are selected by committee invitation only, pay a $100 annual fee, and commit to attend at least one meeting per year.

The Society was formed in 1990 by William Fleisher, Richard Walter, and Frank Bender. It solved its first case in 1991, clearing an innocent man of involvement in the murder of Huey Cox in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Vidocq will only consider cases that meet certain requirements: they must be unsolved deaths more than two years old, the victims cannot have been involved in criminal activity such as prostitution or drug dealing, and the case must be formally presented to them by the appropriate law enforcement agency. The Society does not charge for its services, and pays for the travel expenses of the law enforcement agents who come to present cases.

The Society was chronicled in a 2002 episode of The New Detectives entitled “Collective Justice”, and was also a plot point in the finale of the 2007–08 season of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.

In 2010 it became the subject of a book, The Murder Room by Michael Capuzzo. In A Question of Guilt, a book in the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Super Mystery series, Nancy Drew and Frank and Joe Hardy, working on opposite sides of the same case, approach the Vidocq Society for help.

        Richard Walter: “In terms of interviewing an anger-retaliatory type, one of the things that must be understood by the detectives is, contrary to popular opinion, the perpetrator does not feel any guilt for committing the killing. When they leave the killing site, they many times have a sense of well-being and a sense of relief and a sense of charm because they’ve just had 50 pounds of emotional baggage taken off their shoulders. Police don’t expect that.”

From Facebook notifications to Snapstreaks to YouTube autoplays, they’re all competing for one thing: your attention. Harris shares how these companies prey on our psychology for their own profit and calls for a design renaissance in which our tech instead encourages us to live out the timeline we want.

Quotes

Books

Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

  1. Death doesn’t just take someone, it misses someone else, and in the small distance between being taken and being missed, lives are changed.
  2. Each affects the other, and the other affects the next, and the world is full of stories, but the stories are all one.
  3. Parents rarely let go of their children, so children let go of them. They move on. They move away. The moments that used to define them – a mother’s approval, a father’s nod – are covered by moments of their own accomplishments. It is not until much later, as the skin sags and the heart weakens, that children understand; their stories, and all their accomplishments, sit atop the stories of their mothers and fathers, stones upon stones, beneath the waters of their lives.
  4. This is the greatest gift God can give you: to understand what happened in your life. To have it explained. It is the peace you have been searching for ― Meniti Bianglala
  5. All endings are also beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time.

Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

  1. Death ends a life, not a relationship.
  2. Well, for one thing, the culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. We’re teaching the wrong things. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it. Create your own. Most people can’t do it.
  3. So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
  4. there are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don’t respect the other person, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don’t know how to compromise, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can’t talk openly about what goes on between you, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don’t have a common set of values in life, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike.’ – Morrie Schwartz
  5. I give myself a good cry if I need it, but then I concentrate on all good things still in my life.
  6. This is part of what a family is about, not just love. It’s knowing that your family will be there watching out for you. Nothing else will give you that. Not money. Not fame. Not work.
  7. If you’re trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down on you anyhow. And if you’re trying to show off for people at the bottom, forget it. They will only envy you. Status will get you nowhere. Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone.
  8. You see, you closed your eyes. That was the difference. Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them, too–even when you’re in the dark. Even when you’re falling

Mitch Albom, For one more Day

  1. Have you ever lost someone you love and wanted one more conversation, one more chance to make up for the time when you thought they would be here forever? If so, then you know you can go your whole life collecting days, and none will outweigh the one you wish you had back.

 

Mitch Albom, Have a Little Faith: a True Story

  1. “When a baby comes into the world, its hands are clenched, right? Like this?” He made a fist. “Why? Because a baby not knowing any better, wants to grab everything, to say the whole world is mine. But when an old person dies, how does he do so? With his hands open. Why? Because he has learned his lesson.” “What lesson?” I asked. He stretched open his empty fingers. “We can take nothing with us.”

Mitch Albom, Have a Little Faith: a True Story

  1. In your acknowledgments,” said Pauley, “you say, ‘Finally and firstly, anything created by my heart or hand is from God, by God, through God, and with God.’ And I think that’s the closest I’ve heard you speak about God yet.”
    Link
  2. “In my worldview, it’s not right for me to finish something and not acknowledge that it wasn’t just me and my mind doing it,” said Albom. “Be selfish.”

    • Profile
      • Chances are you will find this story incredibly hard to believe. It’s confronting and confounding, but it really happened. Raised in middle-class Sydney, Katie Lang’s future was almost assured – exciting and prosperous. But her big mistake was to fall in love with the wrong man. Katie thought Damion Baston wanted to be her boyfriend. What he really wanted was to be her pimp. He used violence to control her, turning her into a sex slave and trafficking her around the world. But what this monster didn’t anticipate was Katie’s strength, and when she was finally able to escape his abuse, she set about plotting her revenge.

    • How does Philip Sharp manage it? He’s got seven wives. They’ve borne him 18 children. Life in the Sharp household is busy, to say the least. Philip is polygamous and proud of it. In fact, the British Rabbi even claims that by reviving the long outlawed practice of taking several wives, he’s merely doing God’s work. And he’d take 100 wives if it would help build God’s kingdom. It raises all sorts of uncomfortable questions for the wives, not to mention the chaos of raising all those kids, but what Peter Overton discovered was a harmonious household most families would envy.

Frustration at the lack of clues has led to significant reassessment, and as Ross Coulthart discovers, there’s now growing evidence that authorities have been ignoring more credible theories about what might have brought the jet down.

  10. 60 Minutes Australia: Samantha Knight – Never forgotten (2017)
    • Profile
      • If she was still alive, Samantha Knight would have turned 40 a few days ago. Instead she will always be remembered as the bright and beautiful nine-year-old girl from Bondi who one day in August 1986 simply vanished. Her disappearance led to one of the largest police investigations and searches in New South Wales history but her body has still not been found. In 2001, the notorious paedophile Michael Guider was charged with Samantha’s murder, and six months later pleaded guilty to manslaughter, claiming he hadn’t meant to kill the little girl. Guider showed no remorse over the crime, but plenty of callousness – he said he simply couldn’t remember what he did with her body. Michael Guider is now 66 years old and, having spent the last 21 years in prison, convicted of more than 75 sexual offences against more than a dozen children, is about to become eligible for parole. In a 60 MINUTES exclusive, Ross Coulthart tracks down the key witness in the investigation: the man Guider confessed his crimes to. As well, and for the first time, another of Guider’s child victims speaks publicly about how he destroyed her life. Coulthart’s interviews provide a chilling insight into the mind of an evil pedophile, and powerful testimony to keep Michael Guider locked up.

  11. 60 Minutes Australia: Escape From Salt Creek (2017)
    • Profile
      • Until February last year few people had ever heard of Salt Creek, a rugged and spectacular piece of coastline 200 kilometres south-east of Adelaide. But then a monster named Roman Heinze lured two 23-year-old overseas backpackers to the isolated beach. To satisfy his wicked fantasies, Heinze kidnapped the unsuspecting women and subjected them to unthinkable terror. The trauma went on for hours, but against the odds, Lena from Germany and her friend from Brazil survived. What happened at Salt Creek has eerie similarities to the Australian horror movie Wolf Creek, only it’s all too real. On 60 MINUTES, Lena and her friend tell Tara Brown their incredible story of escape from Salt Creek, their desperate battle to save themselves and each other, and how they proved courage can conquer evil.

  12. 60 Minutes Australia :- Don’t Tell
    • Profile
      • As a 12 year old Lyndal was sexually abused while she was a boarder at Toowoomba Prep; one of the Anglican Church’s elite private schools in Queensland. Her attacker always told her, ‘Don’t tell, no one will believe you,’ and as it turned out, he was right. The abuse went on for eight harrowing months before the predator’s evil was discovered. But that wasn’t the end of Lyndal’s suffering. Her attempts to get the help she desperately needed were ignored by the school and the church. Even approaches to the then Archbishop, Peter Hollingworth, led nowhere. He went on to become Australia’s Governor General, while Lyndal’s life spiralled out of control. After years of misery, one day she decided she’d had enough and what she did next saw the beginning of the end for the Governor-General. Lyndal’s inspirational battle has now been turned into a movie called Don’t Tell, but she’s never spoken publicly about her ordeal. Until now.

      • Politicians in Australia need to take note. It is possible to be liked. For proof they only need to look at New Zealand’s new prime minister, 37-year-old Jacinda Ardern. Four months after taking the top job, her approval ratings are soaring, with 70 per cent of the country believing she’s doing well. And now she’s taking nation building to the next level by combining politics with pregnancy. When she gives birth in June, she’ll be the first elected female leader in the western world to have a child in office. But becoming a mum isn’t expected to slow Ms Ardern down – she says she’ll be back running the country within weeks. As Charles Wooley finds out, Prime Minister Adern’s no-fuss, can-do attitude is an enormous hit with Kiwi voters.

    • Profile
      • Are we becoming too clever for our own good? Medical science has developed a simple blood test which can tell prospective mothers early in their pregnancies if their babies will have Down Syndrome. The test is 99 per cent accurate and doctors are lobbying to make it free for all Australian women who want to take it. However, nine out of ten mums who receive a positive result are already choosing to terminate their pregnancies. It’s a statistic that horrifies many because, if it continues, it may eliminate a beautiful and special part of our community.

      • Belinda van Krevil’s life reads like a rap sheet of horror. She’s been dubbed “Belinda Van Evil”, and for good reason. She ordered the execution of her father, and nearly stabbed to death the man she loved. She did it all in the name of her brother, Mark van Krevil – a serial killer who’s locked up for life. Just a few weeks ago Belinda was released from prison for the second time, surely her last chance at freedom. On 60 Minutes she tells Allison Langdon that the community shouldn’t feel scared that she is back walking amongst us. But what happens when Belinda realises the ultimate betrayal? Will she be able to keep it together?

    • Profile
      • They both wanted uncomplicated, fast sex, and hooking up on the dating app Tinder was the perfect way to do it. But when Gable Tostee met Warriena Wright two years ago their night of passion ended in death. Neighbours heard a drunken argument, physical fighting and then a sickening scream as Warriena fell 14 floors from Tostee’s Gold Coast apartment balcony. That was horrific enough, but Tostee’s unusual behaviour, and his apparent disregard for Warriena in the seconds and minutes after she fell, has led to public condemnation of the then 28-year-old playboy. Instead of calling 000 he tried to call his lawyer. Then he left his apartment and wandered around Surfers Paradise before buying and eating a slice of pizza. For two years Tostee has maintained his silence. He refused to be interviewed by police or take the stand during his sensational trial. Last month a Queensland jury acquitted him of Warriena Wright’s murder after they heard an extraordinary piece of evidence: his own smartphone recording of what happened. Now Gable Tostee wants to speak publicly, and in an extraordinary interview with Liam Bartlett, tries to explain his version of events on that terrible night.

      • It’s perfectly normal to have occasional moments where we feel nervous or worried, even a little fearful sometimes. But what about when those anxious feelings completely overwhelm and consume a person? It can be debilitating and in some cases life-threatening. In Australia today there is an epidemic of anxiety. It’s not understood and it’s not talked about, but this year a staggering two million people will suffer from this crippling condition. However, as Peter Overton discovers in this 60 MINUTES special report, there is hope: ground-breaking new research in Western Australia may hold the key to future treatments, while in Victoria one of man’s best friends is proving a real life-saver.

      • Whatever happened to Shania Twain? Back in the nineties she was everywhere and her catchy country-pop music seemed to be playing every time we switched on the radio. In fact she was so popular that one of her albums still ranks as the highest seller by any female artist. But after a decade at the top, Twain abruptly and rather mysteriously left the stage. She gave up adulation for isolation and became a recluse. It possibly had something to do with her love life, which was so confused and complicated that it deserved its own country song. But now Shania Twain has returned to the spotlight, and it’s as if she’s never been away.

    • Episode
      • 60 Minutes Australia: Bad Cop, Good Cop
    • Profile
      • In a special edition of 60 MINUTES, Channel Nine, reveals the sordid truth about former NSW Detective Roger Rogerson. A jury found 75-year-old Rogerson guilty of murdering 20-year-old university student Jamie Gao. The murder conviction is proof of what many people have long suspected about Roger Rogerson – that he is evil beyond belief. It’s an enormous fall from grace for the highly decorated one-time star of the New South Wales police force. In the 1980s Rogerson was viewed as a potential future police commissioner. But it was all a lie. In reality he was a bad cop, as crooked as they come. For the first time, retired good cop, Mick Drury, reveals all to 60 MINUTES about Rogerson’s involvement in the assassination attempt on him in front of his young family. And Drury’s account of his battle to expose Rogerson’s corrupt ways is just the beginning of the real history of the most notorious rat in police ranks. 60 MINUTES also speaks exclusively to Sascha Huckstepp, the daughter of whistleblower Sallie-Anne Huckstepp who was brutally murdered in 1986. Just years before her death, Sallie-Anne famously claimed to 60 MINUTES that Rogerson had murdered her boyfriend, Warren Lanfranchi. For the first time, Sascha talks about her belief about Rogerson’s role in her mother’s killing.
