Jeff Mudgett’s “Grand Jury” Examines H.H.Holmes Evidence as the Identity of Jack the Ripper!

Definition of a Grand Jury The purpose of a grand jury in US law is to decide whether there is enough evidence presented by the prosecutor to file charges and proceed to trial. Typically grand juries are held in strict confidence, without a judge or lawyers present, however, evidence, exhibits, and testimony are held to strict courtroom rules of evidence before admission. Members of a grand jury may ask questions of witnesses and prosecutors to best understand the evidence being presented. Unlike a jury trial, a grand jury does not need to have a unanimous vote, but a majority in order to indict and the grand jury does not determine guilt or innocence, they only decide if the evidence is strong enough to file an indictment and take the case to trial. In his book, BLOODSTAINS, author Jeff Mudgett relates the account of his great-great-grandfather, the notorious serial killer H. H. Holmes (Herman Webster Mudgett), through the experience of discovering his ancestry, to investigating his every move through long hidden diaries belonging to Holmes. One chapter is …

Audio Books: Don’t You Love Them?

    In our fast paced and over connected world it’s hard to find time to sit down and read a good book. While painting the living room, jogging, or riding the train, you can have a wonderful experience of old, a story told! Storytelling is an ancient tradition, history passed down, or just funny anecdotes about familiar experiences, listening to someone telling a story is as relaxing and comfortable as hearing a book being read as a child. We understand the importance of reading to our children, making it a bedtime ritual, teaching them language at an early age. We want them to be familiar with words, so we teach them to read.
