  2. Good morning Charles, how nice to hear from you! I just heard from Ed, he’s just coming up for air while on a case so he can’t check in with us right now. But he was thrilled with the piece and said very nice things about Ashedit, and by association, the readers who come here. It’s always nice to have you check in.

  7. Elaine,
    Thanks for the post and your kind review of my book on Amazon. I have fielded numerous emails from the people at the Crime Lab/LAVA event and have found them interesting, funny, insightful, very positive and in one case, a bit suspicious (he just made my future suspect list).

    Anyway, it’s so much more fun and enlightening to talk about this type of crime with the public, academics and researchers instead of the usual detectives, investigators, and federal agents I normally consort with…there is a lot of interest in this obscure field of study….Ed
