Hoarding behaviour: Part 1

In junior high, I read an account about the Collyer brothers: they were a local legend in New York City, and were subject to a newspaper story in 1938 that appeared in the New York World-Telegram titled “The Hermits of Harlem”. After the story appeared, the brother’s run-down brownstone became a source of urban myths. By Peter Collins. » Read now

What’s wrong with this picture?

In the early 1990s, a purse snatching was reported in Nova Scotia. As part of their investigation, police showed a witness pictures in a mug book. The session did not result in a positive identification but, five days later, when the police had a suspect, the witness returned to examine a photo lineup. A photo of the suspect was mixed in with 10 images taken from the mug book the witness had examined five days prior. The witness selected the suspect as the perpetrator. When asked if she remembered any of the faces in the lineup from the previous mug book session, the witness testified that she did not. By Raymond M. Klein. » Read now
