An honorable milestone

It’s hard to fathom how far this journey has taken me and the things I’ve witnessed and accomplished.

Friday marked three years in service as your crime and emergency services reporter for The Hillsdale Daily News.

I couldn’t imagine doing anything else with my life, although I have to admit before the fall of 2015 I never contemplated going into media.

As I’ve done in years past to commemorate my work anniversary, I’ve taken time to reflect back on this past year and the stories I’ve covered.

Overall, I have no hesitations in saying this has been my most “violent” year as a news reporter.

The amount of homicides/shootings this year in the relatively calm and quiet Hillsdale County is astonishing to me in comparison to years past.

One of the memories I’ve made this year that will stick with me for a lifetime is sitting on the side of Territorial Road Aug.

The Secret TV Producer: from creation to consumption, women are killing it in true crime

The Secret TV Producer is i‘s industry insider. In this new series he’ll be exploring what today’s TV trends and obsessions reveal about Britain

There was a time before Making a Murderer when true crime in US TV circles meant shows like the Discovery ID network’s Fear Thy Neighbour. This kind of TV follows a very simple formula. Over an hour, including ad breaks, someone kills or maims someone they know, the police investigate with redoubtable professionalism, justice is served by the relevant authorities and a bad person is sent to prison or strapped to an electric chair and humanely toasted to death.

You won’t find a lot of mystery in this kind of TV. Another Discovery ID series, Wives With Knives, tells you in the title who died, who did it, and how. There’s seldom much detail either: once you know who died and who did it, all that matters is how and why; and these programmes

Crystal Mangum ‘Snapped’: Durham woman in Oxygen TV show …

I don’t know how this one slipped past me: Durham’s Crystal Mangum was the subject of a “Snapped” episode on the Oxygen network earlier this month.

Mangum, of course, was the dancer at the center of the Duke Lacrosse scandal from 2006. But “Snapped” is primarily concerned with her 2013 conviction for the murder of her roommate and boyfriend Reginald Daye, who Mangum stabbed in 2011.

The episode features news footage and interviews with Durham Police Department crime scene specialist Al Brown, WRAL crime reporter Amanda Lamb, Raleigh attorney Joseph Cheshire V, friends and family members of Mangum and Daye, and others.

The episode aired on Oct. 7 and has been in reruns, so you can still catch it on TV. But if you can’t wait for the rerun to roll back around, you can watch online at Oxygen. It looks like it will be available online

UFC 229 Preview: Waterson vs. Herrig

Waterson and Herrig are similar in multiple ways, right down to the fact that they both have 21 professional fights under their belts as they ready to reach 22 together in Las Vegas. While Waterson comes from a karate background and Herrig is more of a Muay Thai stylist, they’re both strikers at heart with solid submission skills and scrambling abilities in their back pockets should the action hit the canvas.

Neither has the fight-altering power of top contender Jessica Andrade or the dominant wrestling skills of rising star Tatiana Suarez, but both are high output, high cardio, high pace veterans with a propensity for delivering entertaining performances whenever they step into the Octagon.

What makes this contest so compelling, however, is where these two women are at in their respective careers and how that fits within the current landscape of the 115-pound weight division.

Although Herrig enters next weekend’s main card opener
