The Hunter and the Hunted 37x55
15.08.2015
As the sun rose across the sweeping savannas of Hwange National Park in Hwange, Zimbabwe, on July 1, Minnesota dentist Dr. Walter Palmer was just arriving in the country. Palmer had allegedly paid veteran safari guide Theo Bronkhorst at least $50,000 to help him bag a big lion in Zimbabwe. Palmer once boasted of having hunted big game around the world, including moose, deer, buffalo, mountain lions and even a polar bear, according to the New York Times. By the next day, Palmer killed 13-year-old Cecil, one of the world’s most famous lions and the biggest dominant male black-maned lion in Hwange National Park. Cecil the Lion: New Details Emerge Into the Moments Before He Was Shot by American Dentist Who Admitted Killing Cecil the Lion Sends Patients Letter About Incident. “I think came here,” Brent Stapelkamp, one of the lion researchers who had tracked Cecil with a GPS collar since 2008 as part of an Oxford University lion study, told ABC News’ “20/20.”

When convicted murderers Matt, 48, and Sweat, 34, escaped from the maximum security on June 6, it launched a nationwide manhunt. When they escaped, Guess deployed a massive force involving more than 1,600 members of law enforcement from 11 different agencies all over the country for searches on the ground and in the air. The Titus Mountain Family Ski Center in New York was turned into a police command center. Their search zone just surrounding the prison spanned over “hundreds of square miles,” Guess said. The area around Dannemora, New York, where the Clinton Correctional Facility is located, is unforgiving terrain, with the Adirondack wilderness full of dark woods, deep ravines and high mountains.
 
Stranger Than Fiction 37x51
18.07.2015
On Friday, 20/20 goes inside the stranger than fiction story that prompted unkind comparisons to the movie “Gone Girl”, a bizarre abduction plot even more riveting than the Hollywood movie. When Vallejo, California resident Aaron Quinn reported that kidnappers broke into his home, abducted his girlfriend Denise Huskins, and demanded a ransom, their story garnered national attention. The couple was initially accused by some investigators of staging the whole thing and Vallejo police eventually dismissed the case as an elaborate hoax after Huskins reappeared reportedly unharmed. Now, just this week, in a shocking twist, police have arrested Matthew Mueller, a disbarred Harvard-educated lawyer and US marine veteran who is now being linked to a crime with similarities in Dublin, California. But even more peculiar and disturbing details are emerging, the lingering question of whether he may have not acted alone and the FBI arrest warrant released with astonishing details surrounding the crime- the “wet suit” they say was worn by the suspect while he allegedly terrorized his victims - threatening to drug them with NyQuil, electric shock them and force them into a closet while he wore swim goggles. Then, there are the allegedly incriminating items police found in Mueller’s car and storage locker including women’s make-up, black duct tape, pliers, drones and a video camera. As more bizarre twists and turns emerge in the headlines every day, is this a widespread kidnapping ring? Are there more victims still out there who have not come forward?
