How will family’s discovery of remains affect Brockton murder case?

Family members of a murdered Brockton man made a gruesome discovery last week when they found what the police couldn’t.

BROCKTON — The hardest thing Joseph Shaw’s family has gone through was losing their son, brother, uncle and friend. Then, hearing the details of his death in court caused many of them to have to leave and added to their fresh pain.

But what they found later that day inside his apartment made their hearts break even more.

Joseph Shaw, 44, was found stabbed more than 30 times and wrapped in a blanket inside a closet at his home, 42 Green St., on July 21. His girlfriend, 33-year-old Kathryn Podgurski led police to the body and told them he had been there for about a week. She claimed Shaw was killed in a different location during an armed home invasion and that

An Alabama family of eight was on the way back from a Florida vacation when a feud between father and son led to homicide.

Daniel Lee Young, 40, of Birmingham, was riding in the front passenger seat of a rented Ford Expedition as his wife was driving through Peach County late Tuesday night, said J.T. Ricketson, special agent in charge of the Perry investigative office of the GBI.

Young’s two adult sons, including Deontae Leqwan Young, 21, also of Birmingham, his three young daughters and his girlfriend were in the back of the SUV, Ricketson said.

Just after 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, 911 received a call about a person shot on Interstate 75 just past the Byron exit, near mile marker 151, which is in Peach County Sheriff Terry Deese’s jursidiction.

“(Deontae Young) and his family were coming through from Orlando and he and his father got into some sort of altercation,” Deese said Monday

Miller family announces 3-day crime-solving training symposium

WEST VALLEY CITY — After more than six years, the death of Sherry Black remains unsolved.

Since Black’s death, Heidi and Greg Miller have kept up efforts in hopes of finding justice and a sense of peace. On Tuesday, the Miller family announced a new effort in hopes of not only solving Black’s case, but helping law enforcement across the country better solve their own cases.

The Miller family announced the creation of the Sherry Black Education Foundation, which will sponsor a new, three-day crime assessment training symposium to help law enforcement officers improve their techniques for solving many types of violent crimes, such as the one that took Black’s life.

DPD Investigation Unit adds new family member

A new member has joined the Duncan Police Department Investigation Unit, but she isn’t new to policing the streets.

Lori Adams, who served as the Evidence and Property Custodian for DPD, now takes on the position of Crime Scene Investigative Technician. She’s seen more accomplishments than that this year though; she also took home the City of Duncan Employee of the Year Award.

“When the opportunity was presented to me, I knew this was a challenge I wanted to accept and I am looking forward to the training and experiences ahead,” Adams said. “I work with an outstanding support system and feel very honored for the confidence this department places into me.”

The position change stemmed from ongoing budget cuts, Police Chief Danny Ford said.

According to Ford, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation might have to pull some of their staffing from the area, including in divisions related to

These statements came from Steve Whitmarsh, a family physician at the Air Force Academy who testified on Friday during the Steven Whitt Trial.

Whitmarsh was and is Robertson’s family doctor, including at the time Robertson was allegedly attacked by her now ex-husband Steven Whitt.

Whitt, 54, allegedly hit Robertson over the head with two large stones on June 29, 2015.

He is facing charges of attempted second-degree murder and having a sexual relationship with his stepdaughter.

Whitmarsh said the injury Robertson sustained from the alleged
