Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Execution Date Set For Condemned Ohio Killer
The Ohio Supreme Court has set an execution date for a condemned killer who faked paralysis, then overpowered a deputy, hijacked a pickup truck and shot the driver to death in 1997.
Alva Campbell shot 18-year-old Charles Dials in the face and neck after forcing the teen to lie on the floor of his truck.
The teen had been at the Franklin County Courthouse in Columbus to pay a traffic ticket.
The Supreme Court on Thursday set a July 15, 2015, execution date for the 64-year-old Campbell.
The court overturned Campbell’s first death sentence in 2000, ruling he was not allowed to properly present mitigating factors at sentencing.
The Supreme Court sent the case back for re-sentencing, and the trial court again sentenced Campbell to death.
