Do You Ever Feel Better When Something Gets Solved That Doesn't Even Involve You?

There have been two cases here that have gone unsolved until today. Both cases were related. Two people were stabbed to death in 2008. It was a little boy and the house keeper. Then earlier this year two more people were stabbed to death. The Dad more than likely was the target in the first case; he wasn't home, so his housekeeper and son were stabbed instead. The connection between the cases is that they both houses had people that worked at Creighton University. Both parties were well standing citizens, doctors, and teachers.

I thought about the cases a lot just because the killer was still on the loose, it involved a little boy, and I knew their connection to Creighton University meant something.

The supposed killer is also a doctor was fired for odd behavior back in 2001. He lives in Illinois. He was arrested for driving under the influence. Now he's charged with 4 people's murders. He's traveled back to Nebraska twice, during the times that the murders happened.

My sister Terra and I used to watch Unsolved Mysteries on the Lifetime channel right before bedtime. A few times Robert Sack's (the host) voice would enter my dreams. A few of the cases I was wondering what the answer was to them. I always loved it when the show had updates about finding the person that did this, or that.

Now I like to watch 20/20, 48 Hours, and Castle even though it's fiction.

Do you ever feel better when something gets solved that doesn't even involve you?

What's your favorite mystery show (fiction or non fiction)?

I get this. I do like to hear things getting solved. I always think about the families getting closure and that makes me happy for them.

Eek, that's awful. I hope it's the right person and if so, I'm glad they were found.

I've seen an episode or two of a couple of the crime shows (CSI Miami was one maybe?)... I don't remember the names. I rarely watch, but I thought they were good when I saw them.

I never thought about feeling better when things are solved that don't involve me, but I supppose I do. When there is a murderer running loose, I think we all feel better when he is found.

Definitely! When something terrible like this happens, like it or not, it does affect people. We like knowing that justice has been served for those horrible crimes!

Yes I agree with you 100% - that always makes me feel better as well. My favorite non-fiction mystery show is Dateline or 48 Hours. Fiction would have to be the old Law and Order Criminal Intent.

I'm glad to hear the alleged killer was finally found. It's hard enough on people during those kinds of situations but even worse when the killer isn't caught.
