Joshua Wade confesses to killing of Della Brown
as part of a plea deal in the Mindy Schloss case. FINALLY some justice for that poor woman.

1. Wow. That is horrific. What an animal.
I am also happy there will be no appeals of this case either!

2. There is some speculation
Edited on Wed Feb-17-10 01:30 PM by Blue_In_AK
that he may have been responsible for other unsolved murders of Native women that occurred around the same time. This post at Diva's Blue Oasis gives a hint.

I'm glad we won't be seeing Joshua on the streets ever again. He was/is a bad, bad man. I feel sorry for his dad.

3. I am waiting to see if anything every turns up about Maggie Wiggen,
murdered in Pelican, AK, about 2003. Family and friends thought they knew who did it, but the guy left and there was not evidence enough to charge him.

I knew Maggie when she was a little girl.

4. Alaska can be really hard on women.
You know, of course, that we have the highest per capita rate of sexual assault in the country. I don't know what it is with the guys up here ...
