Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #184: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving three high school friends.

She was a 16-year-old honors student living in a small close-knit community when she went missing. After her parents reviewed the security video from their apartment complex, they saw she’d slipped out her bedroom window and got into the back seat of a car. The video was too grainy to see make, model, or license plate number.

BLOG POST #171: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime that occurred a few years ago involving a high school Dean of Academy and a 17-year-old student.

This week, you may have heard four of the five high school boys who made the news in November 2018, for the alleged hazing incident where boys were sexually assaulted in the locker room are being charged as adults.

I’m sure the families of these boys were shocked by the allegation and now frightened their children may go to prison.

Sadly, this is not an isolated case. You may have missed two posts I did on similar crimes. I’ll be sure to summarize the outcome of the current case once it’s known.

Robin Lyons BlogThank you for reading my weekly posts. I don’t know about you, but I’ve come to the conclusion nothing is too bizarre when it comes to crime.

I’ve also come to understand when your family has lost a relative to a heinous act, reliving the pain through the court testimony often drags on for years as it has in the case I’m sharing information on in this post.

Robin Lyons BlogSummer is a time when it’s more likely friends will have sleepovers. Days are long. School’s on break. Parents usual relax curfews.

Although the case research I’m sharing in this post didn’t occur during the summer, it should serve as a reminder to parents—never drop your guard.

BLOG POST #154: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving three middle school girls.

Evil Backstabber

Shortly after the new school year had begun, one young teenager was sleeping over at her friend’s house. They watched TV and chatted about boys. The typical stuff you’d expect 13-year-old girls to do.
