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.
Former Prisons Head Opposes Death Penalty
A former state prisons chief spoke out against the death penalty today. Retired director of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections Terry Collins said the state of Ohio needs to get out of the execution business.
“After leaving the state agency in 2010 and retiring, I publicly came out about the death penalty and my position was we have another option, life without parole and I think it’s time we look at that.”
Collins says executions are traumatic for prison staff to witness and countless appeals are costly for the state. Collins was the Director of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections from 2006 to 2010. The Kasich Administration says the governor stands by his support of the death penalty. The state has said it will review last week’s controversial execution of Dennis McGuire which has renewed controversy over the death penalty.
