Missing Person Woman and Toddler Missing in Gary, Indiana

Nearly six weeks after a developmentally disabled woman and her toddler nephew went missing, police in Gary, Indiana, have issued regional Silver Alert for the pair.

Diamond Bynum, 21, and her 2-year-old nephew, King Walker, disappeared on July 25, after they apparently went for a walk. While there have been a number of reported sightings since, no AMBER alert was ever issued in the case.

On Wednesday, Gary police issued a Silver Alert, a public notification about a missing person, typically used when the person is elderly, or suffers from a mental disability.

Bynum has limited mental capacity, and a condition that makes her want to eat constantly. Her family moved to Gary from Hammond in February, and police have said she is not yet familiar with the area around her new home in the 500 block of Matthews Street.

Bynum’s father, Eugene, said he’s glad police finally put out an alert.

“I really don’t know why it took this long. I’m just happy that it’s finally happened. I just hope that it’s not too late,” he said.

He said he’s remaining optimistic his daughter and her nephew will be found.

“We’re not going to stop looking for them. So we have to keep strong, so we can do whatever we need to do to find them,” he said.

The family has helped search dozens of vacant buildings in Gary, and police have investigated several leads, but so far nothing has panned out.

“We’re holding up as well as can be expected. The thing is that, of course we’re sad. We miss our children,” Eugene Bynum said.

Gary police have previously said they want to question a person of interest, identified as Terrance D. Williams, also known as Dollar.

Williams is approximately 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 145 pounds. He is known to frequent the area of 2200 Georgia Street in Gary as well as the 800 block of Pennsylvania Street, police said.

Eugene Bynum said he was following up on a tip Wednesday, after someone claimed Diamond and King were seen in Hammond.

Pedophile Tracking KY Woman and TN Man Charged With Sex Trafficking of a KY Minor

A Lexington, Kentucky, woman and Clarksville, Tennessee man were charged by a federal grand jury today with a single count of sex trafficking a 15-year-old female, announced United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr.

Crystal L. Bradshaw, a/k/a Crystal Thurman, age 41, and Ralph W. Goodwin, age 65, face no less than 10 years in prison and no more than a life sentence, a $250,000 fine, and no less than five years and up to a lifetime of supervised release.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

Goodwin was initially charged in a separate, sealed criminal complaint on August 23, 2015. The case was unsealed during the initial appearance and detention hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Dave Whalin on Monday, August 31, 2015.

According to the affidavit attached to the criminal complaint, on August 7, 2015, a 15-year-old female was approached by Crystal Bradshaw, in a Louisville park. Bradshaw took the minor female to a Marriott Hotel in Louisville to engage in sexual contact with Ralph Goodwin, in exchange for a monetary payment. According to the affidavit, Bradshaw received a payment of $700 from Goodwin, but the minor was not paid. Further, after two days, Goodwin drove the minor to his home in Clarksville, Tennessee. Eventually, the minor contacted a friend on Goodwin’s computer. The friend contacted the minor’s mother, which resulted in the Montgomery County, TN Sheriff’s Office discovering the minor at Goodwin’s Clarksville home.

Goodwin is scheduled for arraignment on September 29, 2015 at 9:30 a.m. in Louisville.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Amanda Gregory and is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The indictment of a person by a Grand Jury is an accusation only and that person is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Private Detective: 6 Arrested For Criminal Gang Recruitment

Police have arrested a total of six men accused of recruiting for a Chicago-based street gang in Lexington.

One Tuesday, police arrested Arnaz Lee Wheat, 50, and charged him with criminal gang recruitment. A fifth man was booked, Tony M. Berry, was booked into the Fayette County Detention Center Wednesday morning on a criminal gang recruitment charge. Friday, Thomas Wallace was also arrested in connection to the incident.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

According to court documents, Wheat, Berry and Wallace were part of a group of at least a dozen men participating in the “beat-in” of a prospective gang member at Whitney Young Park on St. Martins Avenue last September. Investigators say the beat-in gang initiation required the perspective member to endure a five-minute assault. Officers say at the time there was a sporting event going on at the park, and there were children present.

Police say through surveillance, officers learned gang members were soliciting prospects to join the Black P. Stone Nation prior to the initiation.

Last week, police arrested Gregory Smith, 49, (AKA “Grays”), Gerald O’Neil Smith, 29, (AKA “Nib”) and Trevor Spencer, 25, in connection with the same incident. Smith and O’Neil pleaded guilty, and Spencer pleaded not guilty to criminal gang recruitment charges.

Spencer was released on bond, but officers arrested him again Tuesday and charged him with receiving stolen property, possession of drug paraphernalia and trafficking in controlled substance (heroin).

The Black P. Stone Nation is a Chicago based street gang founded in the 1950s. Experts estimate the gang has more than 30,000 members, and has expanded throughout the U.S. It is part of a larger Chicago gang alliance known as People Nation.
