It could just have been Zeman and Brancaccio walking around interviewing the usual suspects et al, but they go deeper than that to leave a lasting impression on both the mind and the soul. Andre Rand pulled up to Holly and her friend and pulled Holly into his Volkswagen and drove off with Holly. Although intelligent, well-spoken and articulate, Douglas theorized, Williams may have felt that his life was out of control. Andre Rand was born on March 11, 1944 with the birth name of Frank Rushan. Lastly, the movie deals with the old Willowbrook School and Seaview Hospital, and I want to talk about the stories of hauntings that we heard as paranormal investigators about these killings and these locations. Except for the fact that the asylum is on Staten Island, its real relationship to the Cropsey legend the origin of that name is never discussed is not answered.

The film uses lots of archival footage as well as recent interviews with detectives, witnesses and community leaders who were involved in the initial investigation of the crimes. It would seem that the prosecution really bungled the case, however, the film becomes almost infuriating because it stubbornly refuses to divulge details of the trial, or present reasons why a jury could reach such an absurd conclusion. I dont know but what I understand is that the person who finds a victim is investigated as a possible perpetrator. On the other hand, I am very much on the fence regarding Jim Penniston. Rand was sentenced to twenty-five years to life with eligibility for parole in 2008. After watching this, I can't say. Same with Manson, he never killed anybody, he had influence on the people that did carry out the murders, but he never physically took someones life.

George, of abducting Holly Ann Hughes, 7, as she walked on a street in her Port Richmond neighborhood 23 years earlier. It was near Rand's camp site. Only one body, that of Jennifer Schweiger, was ever found. Homeless Andre Rand is arrested after Jennifer's body is found in the woods. By the early 2000s, Douglas would have interviewed over 50 serial killers. There was never any proof that he committed any of the murders, except for public opinion and mob rule. There is a possibility they may be buried on the grounds of the New York City Farm Colony a poor farm and Seaview Hospital last used as a home for the elderly due to the tunnels that connected them to the former Willowbrook State School at one time.

But in Illinois, as in other places, anyone seeking that testing still must meet burdensome criteria. It's a shame they couldn't nail him for murder, and surprising they couldn't, given that: 1. Why are you going to tell this story now? Soon after, the State of New York, where Raquel was also authorized to practice medicine, censured and reprimanded him, requiring him to perform 100 hours of community service. They discard this storyline and move on, never to return to it. A brief exploration of the possibility of satanic rituals rounds out the film, but aside from a remark from one of the directors on camera that there is no devil worship here in the remains of the asylum , they leave that aspect unexplored. Her disappearance was followed by Tiahease Jackson in 1983, Hank Gafforia in 1984 and Jennifer Schweiger who vanished in 1987 from her neighborhood in the Westerleigh section of Staten Island.

While it feels better to have Rand locked up from a societal point of view, the implication that comes with his innocence is far more disturbing. I hope you're never on a jury if I'm falsely convicted of a crime. For at least 23 hours a day, Andre, like all Tamms prisoners, would be locked in solitary confinement in a windowless 7-by-12-foot cell. There was no physical evidence. So it was very quick from the time we showed interest to the time that we started.

Personally, it's been a long-time since I heard any reference to Cropsey. So there is one Bigfoot, or many Bigfoot. Why wasnt he convicted of Murder or even a lesser charge of having killed a person? Andre's specimen failed to grow E. Are we better off without him on our streets? I'd be grabbing him up if I was a horror director. He would be dripping with sweat. He was working in a complex where Alice Pereira vanished in 1972.

And then, we learn that The Bogeyman is real. Several pieces of the investigation seemed strange to her. What's creepy are the scenes of the community standing around looking at him coming and going to court with their mob scene expressions. In the meantime, in October 2005, an intern with the Center on Wrongful Convictions finally tracked down the state's star witness from Andre's trial, Don Douroux, who was by then in his 60s. And once an individual is convicted, he has no right to a court-appointed attorney after his initial appeal.

She was murdered on the grounds of the now-defunct Staten Island Developmental Center formerly known as the Willowbrook State School near his campsite. The eyewitness testimonies used to convict Rand ranged from compelling for a few to insane for most. For one, Williams has been known to maintain his innocence. . The prosecution was given 35 days to appeal the decision—and then, near the end of that period, the prosecution requested an additional 35 days to make up its mind.
