I wanto to thank every one who contributed to this OneVoice "Winter Tales 2015"

Like every year it was a nerve wrecking, tongue twisting and a huge amount of hours and work to present this what only takes less than 15 minutes listening time.

Forgive me if I didn't pronounce all the words correct.
What seems like regular words for you, are for me totally new things to learn.

I know some may sound really weird.
But .... I still did it.

Thank you for listening

Ep 115 @RippertourLdn (Russell Edwards)

Russell Edwards (and Dr. Jari Louhelainen) brought the story out about the true identity behind the mythe and legend of "Jack The Ripper".

Using DNA evidence, Russell Edwards was able to conclusively name Jack the Ripper as Polish born Aaron Kosminski

The biggest murder mystery of all time has now been solved, thanks to DNA on a Victorian shawl and forensic science.

 In 2007 Russell Edwards bought a Victorian shawl at an auction. The shawl was large – over 7 feet long, made of silk, obviously very old, and damaged, with pieces missing. The shawl had been taken by a policeman from the murder scene of Jack the Ripper’s fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes, on 30 September 1888.  Since then, aside from a few years in Scotland Yard’s Black Museum, it had been safely stored away by the direct descendants of that policeman.

On the day we did this this interview  (September 16 2015)Russell met with Dr. Jari for the first day of project No. 2.


Enjoy our conversation. *smile*

Chris retired from the FBI in May 2015 after 25 years of service.

For 15 years he worked criminal cases (largely drugs and organized crime) in the Baltimore Field Division of the FBI.

From 2005-2015 he was a highly respected instructor in the subjects of Interviewing and Interrogation, and Detection and Deception at the FBI Acacemy in Quantico, Virginia. He taught this subject to new agent trainees and to law enforcement personnel all over the world, including Europe, Asia and South America.

Chris attained the status as an Adjunct Professor from the University of Virginia during his tenure at the FBI Academy where he also designed graduate level courses including "Conflict Resolution for the Law Enforcement Executive" and "Officer Involved Shootings (OIS)". These two classes were taught to police executives from all over the world.

He was the Employment Assistance Program (EAP) Coordinator for the FBI Academy. His passion, in his duties as EAP Coordinator, was to heal wounded marriages of law enforcement personnel and the aftercare of officers, and their families, after critical incidents.

And he is the only person who conducted an investigation at the FBI Academy regarding Paranormal Activities.

How all these things come together you will hear during this conversation.

You might know him.. he was a guest at Joe Rogan #JRE #425

Phil Demers is a former professional marine mammal trainer at MarineLand in Niagara Falls, Ontarario, Canada.

Smooshi is a wild-captured pacific walrus. Marineland of Canada Inc. acquired her at about 18 months of age from the Black Sea, Russia in 2004.

During a traumatic medical procedure Phil imprinted on Smooshi. This caused her to believe he was, in essence, her mother.

He cites Smooshi’s suffering as his breaking point and inspiration to speak out about marine mammal captivity.
