Joshua Szostak, Toxicology is Back

with 2 comments

A couple of days ago I heard that the toxicology results were back in the Joshua Szostak case.  I had first heard this on Al Roney’s show on WGY, then I searched for articles and could find any.  Interesting I thought, an on air radio host has this information but I can’t find it in print.  The next day I went back to Al’s site and found the pod cast, it was a follow up interview with Josh’s father, Bill Szostak.  As I listened to the interview I had heard the same thing I heard the day before.  I’m not losing my mind (for a while I thought I was).  Again I searched for an article, nothing.  This really baffled me because you would think that this information was news worthy.  Or was it?

In the interview Al and Bill discussed the results.  It was concluded that Josh had about 4-5 beers.  Surely that’s not enough alcohol to say that Josh was intoxicated.  It coudln’t have been enough for Josh to accidentally fall into the river.  I share the same opinion.  With that in mind one would conclude that there is still a mystery surrounding Josh’s death.  Why doesn’t the Albany Police Department feel the same way?  Why didn’t they release the results?

Last night Anderson Cooper (CNN) did a segment on the smiley face killers.  He interviewed the 2 retired detectives that are working on the smiley face killings.  CNN was in Albany, interviewed Bill Szostak and showed clips of the river.  Could Joshua Szostak be one of the 40+ college males that have gone missing after a night of drinking, some of which have been found in a river? 

Anderson Cooper …CNN

Today, 2 days after Al Roney’s interview with Bill Szostak, 1 day after Anderson Cooper of CNN does a segment on the smiley face killers that includes Joshua Szostak, the APD release their spin on the toxicology report. 

I ask any of you who are here looking for information on either Joshua Szostak and/or the smiley face killers to go to the links below and decide for youself.  What happened to Joshua?

Jaliek Search Scaled Back

with 10 comments

“GREENWICH – Police have scaled back their investigation of the disappearance of Jaliek Rainwalker, saying they need a break in the case or significant lead before they can dedicate resources to the inquiry again.

Cambridge-Greenwich Police Chief George Bell said all leads in the case have been exhausted, and resources will be dedicated to the search as new leads develop. Investigators had been meeting every week, but recently changed those meetings to every month.

“We’ve done everything we can do at this point,” Bell said. “It’s still an open case. If something comes up, we’ll go after it.””

Jaliek Rainwalker Searches Planned

with 3 comments

There are three planned search dates for Jaliek Rainwalker and volunteers are needed.  The first will be at Merck Forest & Farmland Center in Rupert, VT (9 miles NE of Salem, NY, or approx. 60 miles from Albany, NY).  These searches are organized grid searches, on foot.  A grid search consists of 6-12 people crews that search a designated area.  Each crew is debriefed and has a crew boss.  The dates scheduled so far are: May 31st, June 7th and June 21st (all Saturdays).

It’s important to know that these searches are intense and last all day.  If you enjoy to be outside, hike, volunteer and have a big heart, then please visit the Task Force website or call 1-877-4JALIEK (1-877-452-5435) to sign up.

Still Searching for Jaliek

with 18 comments

There hasn’t been much news on Jaliek since the middle of last week.  The silence gets on my last nerve.  There’s a 12 year old boy who’s missing and he needs to be found.  He’s been missing for over 6 months and someone has information as to what happened on the night of November 1st.  If anyone has any information, even if you don’t believe that it’s relevant, please come forward.  The Find Jaliek Task Force has an annonymous tip box where you can leave information. Or you can contact the Greenwich Police at 1-518-692-9332.
