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.
Ohio High Court Won’t Hear Septic Tank Body Case
The Ohio Supreme Court has declined to consider an appeal by a man convicted of killing his estranged wife, who was found strangled in a septic tank.
The Logan Daily News reports William Inman II had turned to the high court after a state appeals court affirmed his conviction.
He had sought a new trial, saying the prosecution didn’t disclose a prior conviction of a witness. The appeals court said the disclosure to the defense wasn’t required.
Inman still could appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
He was convicted of aggravated murder and other charges in southeast Ohio’s Hocking County and was sentenced to life in prison for the 2011 slaying of 25-year-old Summer Inman.
His parents also are serving prison sentences on similar charges in the case.
