Death investigation at luxury South Beach condo building

Miami Beach police started a death investigation after finding a body in a South Beach apartment Wednesday afternoon.

A 3:15 p.m. call of a dead man in an apartment brought both Miami Beach Fire Rescue and Miami Beach police to 1900 Sunset Harbour Dr., known as Sunset Harbour North. They found what the caller described — a dead white male in the condominium unit.

The Crime Scene Investigation unit and detectives were on the scene soon after and remained there as of 5 p.m.

In April 2016, a bloody stabbing of a Sunset Harbour South resident by his roommate stunned residents and staff in an area where few violent crimes occurred since the South building’s completion in 1998.

Two arrested in stabbing death of woman found on rural Livermore road

 

LIVERMORE — A dying woman found on the side of a rural Alameda County road was able to give investigators enough information to lead them to a pair of suspects before she succumbed to multiple stab wounds early Monday, authorities said.

The 19-year-old woman had apparently crawled 100 yards along Tesla Road before she was found, and held on long enough to speak with investigators and be airlifted to a hospital.

Death Becomes Her: Inside the Nutshell World of Frances Glessner Lee

If you’re around Washington D.C. this winter, you might want to consider swinging through the Renwick Gallery, located just a stone’s throw from the White House. A new display there, called “Murder Is Her Hobby,” features the work of Frances Glessner Lee, who used dollhouses to recreate real-life crime scenes and then used them to train homicide detectives. Each scene is exquisitely detailed, complete with tiny cups and saucers, charming wallpaper, and—always—a dead body, sometimes swinging from a rope or riddled with bullet holes. A flashlight and a crime report, written by Lee, accompany each of the 19 scenes.

Lee was friends with the kind of hard-nosed, fast talking detectives we romanticize in fiction today, and each story reads like something from the golden age of film noir. To wit:

OSBI investigates second inmate death in Latimer County since Christmas Eve

LATIMER COUNTY, Okla. – The OSBI, for the second time since Christmas Eve, has been called in to investigate an inmate death in Latimer County. 

According to OSBI reports, a 45-year-old inmate slashed his own throat with a shaving razor and was rushed to a hospital where he died. Just after noon Saturday, an inmate requested a shaving razor and soap to shave.

A detention deputy then saw on video what he described as suspicious movements inside the 45-year-old man’s cell. When they went to check on him, deputies said they saw blood on the inmate and inside the cell.

The man was transported to Latimer County Memorial Hospital with lacerations to his neck and wrists. Doctors pronounced him dead just after 2 p.m., according to reports.
