Scared Monkeys is proud to introduce the opening of its newest blog to the Scared Monkeys family, Blink on

Blink on Crime is bold, unique, professional and always working on behalf of law enforcement and victims. Be sure to take part and read the “true crime” analysis and stories having the benefit of inside information unique to the crime story at hand. This is not just about discussing a case … it’s about analyzing them … it’s about solving them.

Many have probably noticed that Blink34 has done several recent excellent true crime posts on Scared discussing the Caylee Anthony case, Jose Baez, Todd Black and the Vernon Seitz case. It was only a prelude to the Scared Monkeys introduction to its new “True Crime” blog, BLINK ON CRIME.

Blink34 will be the contributing editor for BLINK ON CRIME.COM.

She has a background in PR/Blink Development and a passion for crime sleuthing. Many of you already know her from her days at Web Sleuths. However, we have her now and are very happy for those set of circumstances. Blink34 is now the “True Crime” Monkey.

Blink’s passion and dedication to helping law enforcement and victims of crime is out done by her persistence, professionalism and getting to the bottom of a story. Blink’s ability to dig, gather and attain necessary and related info and assemble contacts further enhances her crime sleuthing skills. Blink’s unique crime writing style is also a breath of fresh air.

The following is a brief and personal account from Blink34 as to why she got involved with crime investigation in the first place. All passions have a beginning.

My participation in research and investigation in MP cases began in Feb 2008, when the son of a long-time business associate and family friend went missing. The horror this family endured, the frantic activity engaged by all to find him, the agony of not knowing where one’s loved one is, haunts me to this day, and molded a new path for me. I learned first hand the blinding cruelty of knowing someone you love is “out there”; the shock and grief when they are finally found if one is fortunate enough, and the knowledge that there is nothing worse than the “not knowing”. I have yet to hear someone that has gone through this nightmare, dubbed “The Lonely Wall” by Mike’s Mom, that regardless of the outcome, would not agree that finding the missing is the best chance of surviving the experience at all.

The way someone you love leaves you, matters. A person’s legacy, no matter how young or old, when their life is taken from them, deserves to be restored.

Blink has a track record of investigating and analyzing crime. Many stories that you may have read about, Blink just might have been somewhere in the back ground providing data and analysis to law enforcement or working with search teams. Some of Blink’s accomplishments, both solo and combined with Investigative research team are as follows:

  • Contributing Research Analyst/ Investigator:
  • Nationwide Investigations: Kevin Gannon and Anthony Duarte, Missing Mens Cases
  • OCSO, FBI, TES: Caylee Anthony Case
  • States Attorney’s Office 9th Circuit, AG Law of Florida: Trust Fund and Charitable Donations misuse and fraud investigation, multiple entities and subjects.
  • Aerial Image Corporation: President, Sean Henady
  • Lubbock Texas Police Dept- Investigative Unit: Ken Wilcox case
  • Medico lethal Death Scene Investigator
  • Minnesota ME Office Gary Peterson:
    Corrie Anderson case
    Gina Lin Anderson case
    Confidential casework and ongoing projects

      Thanks so much, it will only be as good as we make it as a team. What I mean is, as long as we all continue to “care” about the truth in these cases and justice for victims, it is important work.

      My sincerest appreciation in support,

      Blink, I left a question for you over on Blink Crime regarding KFN, but have another question, as well. I’m asking here because the blinking ads (no pun intended) hurt my brain! Have you been able to find out anything about who is behind the defense funding? I doubt there is an “anonymous family” that hired Black/Cabot/PMC, but who else do you think is trying to get on the true life story rights money train?

    12. misskatie on February 16th, 2009 8:29 pm

      Orlando Sentinel…an article states that 1,100 pages of evidence had been released to the defense team… Casey’s fingerprints on the duct tape is not good news for the defense…Orlando defense attorney Richard Hornsby said the duct tape evidence brings the death penalty back into play. Hornsby said it may force Baez to put Casey on the stand or consider a plea bargain.

    16. justmoma on February 17th, 2009 1:13 am

      Hi Blink

      Am using Netscape. Went to your site using a dialup and then using DSl. Took minutes to load. TIA

    17. Susan on February 17th, 2009 5:57 am


      Since the defense team was offered the chance for a plea bargain in the beginning, but refused, would that still be an option?

    18. brie. on February 17th, 2009 7:20 am

      #17 susan…I am not really sure but maybe a chance for another plea bargain since there is more incriminating evidence…no other explanation for the duct tape around Caylee with Casey’s fingerprints on it….she killed her. Baez would never put Casey on the stand…so a plea bargain would mean no trial…maybe that is why the prosecution said a venue may not be necessary. They need to wrap this up and give her what she deserves.
      Baez is only playing pick-up-sticks and losing…

    19. Blink34 on February 17th, 2009 7:55 am


      Guys, keep the feedback coming! A launch is not a launch without glitches!! Occupational Hazard I am afraid.. We are working on it.

      Can I get anyone anything while they are waiting- beer, wine, sangria? lol

      To answer the plea question, I believe the DP will go back up, Casey will accept a plea. If they are smart, they will do so quickly.

    20. on February 17th, 2009 9:02 am

      Blink: the blinking ad is the most obnoxious I’ve ever seen. It’s truly horrible and makes it next to impossible to read your blog.

    21. Gigi on February 17th, 2009 9:17 am

      I believe they can ask to reinstate the DP because the evidence they have is strong enuf to indicate premeditation and they did not have this conclusive evidence at the time she was charged with the crime. I’m thinking that fingerprints are probably not the strongest indication, let’s not forget carpet fibers from the car trunk, inside the home or garage, where did the laundry bag come from (perhaps purchased at JCPenney with Cindy’s stolen credit card?). There are so many questions……..

    22. truthbe on February 17th, 2009 12:13 pm

      I am new here, though have been following the caylle case since july very closely. I am excited to join this group. Go easy on me all ok! :-)

      I wonder if LE will consider bringing the DP back on the table if the finger prints are caseys?

    23. brie. on February 17th, 2009 12:50 pm

      Orlando Sentinel…Baez admitted himself to the hospital Friday night with a stomach ache according to MacKenzie…they ran some tests, he was released the next day, she said it was not stress related….

      Gee, was it something he ate…or the 1,100 hundred pages of evidence he knew was coming….

      Caylee Anthony: Newly Released Evidence May Not Look Good for Defense

      Posted on February 16th, 2009 by Jan Barrett in Florida News

      Monday the state released over 1100 pages of evidence against Casey Anthony to her defense team. Casey Anthony is the tot’s mom that is being held in Orange County Jail on charges of first degree murder of her 2 year old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.

      The test results from the FBI lab done on the duct tape that was found on the skull of the child are reportedly in the newly released documents. WESH 2’s Bob Kealing asked if Casey Anthony’s fingerprints were found on the duct tape, he was told by a source, “This is not going to be good for the defense.”

      The new documents are not going to be released to the public until the middle of next week though. Orlando defense attorney Richard Hornsby said that the duct tape evidence would possibly bring the death penalty back in to play. He said this could just force Casey’s attorney, Jose Baez to either put Casey on the stand or consider a plea bargain for her……….

      Thanks, Blink for the answer on the plea bargaining.

      Hopefully we will get the official word next week on the fingerprints. There’s no doubt of any of our minds whose prints are on the duct tape.

    25. Susan on February 17th, 2009 4:31 pm

      Thank you, too, brie for the answer on the plea bargaining :-)

      Report: Mom’s fingerprints not on tape found on Caylee’s skull

      Posted by Christopher Collette

      ORLANDO, Florida — Sources told 10 Connects news partner WKMG Local 6 News Monday that no fingerprints were located on the duct tape found wrapped around the skull of Caylee Anthony.

      Hundreds of pages of additional documents are expected to be released in the case against the slain toddler’s mother, Casey Anthony, as early as today. Anthony, 22, remains jailed on first-degree murder charges in her daughter’s death.

      Caylee’s remains were discovered in December in a wooded lot near the home she shared with her mother and grandparents. The girl’s skull was wrapped in duct tape, and sources told Local 6 News that sheriff’s investigators headed to the Anthony house the day the discovery was made, looking for evidence that might link Casey Anthony or items in the house to the crime scene.

      Sources said the soon-to-be released documents will show that investigators never found a duct tape roll at the home but did find a similar piece of tape on a gasoline can in the house. Sources also told Local 6 News that FBI lab tests reveal no fingerprints were found on the duct tape.

      Celebrity bounty hunter Leonard Padilla, who has been involved with the case since he bailed Casey Anthony out of jail, claimed the opposite last week on national TV. A tabloid magazine also reported that Casey Anthony’s fingerprints were found on the tape.

      Sources inside Casey Anthony’s defense team said they are “sick of Padilla’s lies” and want him to “go away.”


      This article conflicts with #24 and was obviously reported by the defense team.

      Welcome Blink34 and truthbe :-)

    27. Susan on February 17th, 2009 4:54 pm

      Blink, I’m having NO problems with your website. It looks great and very professionally developed :-)

    28. Blink34 on February 17th, 2009 5:56 pm

      Thanks all, we are working on some issues with the site, the ad issue was out of our control for a while, looks like running better..
      Kudos to Dugga/Red/Klaasend who busted hump on getting it up..

    29. Confused on February 22nd, 2009 1:03 pm

      What is a lethal Death Scene Investigator and what does Medico do? I know Sean Henady and he has done work with the missing. Do you work directly with him?

      For those interested in true crime, check out my site! I am having a felony arson case tried in the media as we speak. The cops allowed the two boys responsible for the arson to walk free, and I am releasing details daily!

      Who is Blink?

    33. lolasma on June 24th, 2009 6:17 pm

      As per your suggestion, I did try to get involved by reading and following blink’s staunch lead, she is undeniably an exceptionally gifted woman but I have to say a little rude at times. I’ve noticed some idiotic posts on her site which go without reprimand and yet newbies who really try to get with the program can be dealt with a little harshly. I do appreciate how busy blink is and how her time is precious but she does after all throw those little teasers out there and so it’s highly likley that people will not be able to resist responding. I really did love the site and found it inspiring, however I now I feel rather unwelcome.
      SM: Really? You chose this to be your very first post at SM, to make a vague complaint? :-)

    34. lolasma on July 16th, 2009 11:54 am

      I rest my case!

    35. Pat on October 19th, 2009 9:47 am

      The is behavior in our society of killing and abuse has to stop, I started this petition for that reason. Children are a gift from God that should be protected and loved. Please read it and if you agree please take the time to sign it. Forward to all your friends and feel free to post it anywhere you think it will help.
      Thank you.
      Stop the abuse and murder of the children in the U.S.

    36. Jan on October 28th, 2009 8:54 am

      Hi Pat I know thats you.Yes it does have to stop.I signed the petition once.Do I need to sign it more.Or is that enough.So happy to see someone doing something to help,other than talking.I know growing up.We would hear of something to do with a child,being murderd rarly.But now,its every day.An to think take some of the offenders,are on the street again in less than a year.An its a known fact.Most repeat the crime.Some even learn how to avoid the law.Im not speaking of girl,an boy who like each other.An parent puts boy in jail.Just because they dont want girl dating him.Im talking about these vile sneaky people who do things to children,some even leading to murder.They shouldnt be allowed to plead case out.But recieve max-if crime has to do with a innocent child.Because many children never get over the abuse,if they arent murdered,on top of everything else thats done to them.

      My sister, Kathy Whorton, was raped and murdered in 1981, and the serial killers, Henry Lee Lucas and Otis Toole confessed to her murder. In 2003 I decided to look into her murder myself because the two serial killers confessed to hundreds of murders, and I just didn’t believe they did it. I went on a long journey to find her real killer which included the help of the famous Vidocq Society. Twenty-seven years later, her real killer was identified through DNA evidence. He was captured only miles from where he abducted her and took her life. Because of evidence that mysteriously disappeared and an autopsy report that was never filed because of the coroner’s suspected substance abuse problem, he will never be brought to trial for her murder. The good news is that through some pretty miraculous twists and turns, he is now serving a life sentence because he stole a bottle of cologne. My book, Sweet Scent of Justice, gives all the details of my amazing story. I would appreciate any publicity you might be able to give me concerning my story.
      Thank you,
      Debbie Wilson
