The Coast to Coast Killer
Chapter Four

“You feel like shooting some hoops?”
Said Officer Thompson to Detective Carpenter as he was pretending to shoot a jumpshot from his seat in front of the detectives desk.
“I think we need to take a little break.” “You know, tired minds don’t think to well.” He continued.
As he was now tucking in his shirt upon rising from his chair.
Officer Thompson was a pretty good former N.B.A. reserve player. Having played for the Philadelphia 76ers before injuring his knee in his rookie season.
Second team All-American out of Temple University. 6-6 and only 28. He was still a formidable opponent between the blocks. And nobody wanted to play
H.O.R.S.E with him either. Hardly anybody could match his dunks.
“Yea.” “Maybe you’re right.” “Not for too long though.” “This fucker ain’t resting to much so we can’t afford to either.” Responded the detective.
He was tapping on the desk with his pencil while looking at the list of victims.
They had been in the office since early this morning working on the case and had been going over several stacks of paper concerning the victims and all of the new data seemed to be a bit over whelming by now.
At this point, they were yet unawares of the latest victim, the girl in Florida had not yet been found. Charlie had pulled her into the bushes and covered her up with a stack of delivery pallets he had found nearby.
“I keep thinking about number 29.” Said the detective.
“You mean the pizza delivery guy?”
“Yea.” “You know, I don’t think he even planned that one.”
“As a matter of fact, I think he was just driving by and saw an opportunity that he couldn’t refuse.” Chided the detective.
“That was the one in New Hampshire right?”
“Yea, earlier this summer.” “Right after the one in Boston.”
“So.” “He kills a guy in Boston and then drives all the way up to the very tip of New Hampshire, almost to Canada…...

Emerald Coast

...The Emerald Coast Perfection, nothing describes that word better than Destin, Florida’s Emerald Coast. The name speaks for itself; the radiant green waters are like a massive jewel delicately placed in the sand. The Emerald Coast is a rare kind of experience, only rivaled by that of the Caribbean. The seemingly endless miles of quartz, pure white sand, and the commanding presence of the green-blue waters are healing grounds for weary souls. From a far, elevated view, you are able to perceive the panoramic image of Destin’s Emerald Coast; also, at such a vantage point, the eye is blind to details, yet a keen beholder will marvel at the contrast between the turquoise waters and the vast snow-like, crystal sands, all under the canopy of the periwinkle sky. The atmosphere here is serene, even when the sun kissed wind occasionally gushes over the land, as if to cleanse the oppression from those who have come to experience the supremacy of the Emerald Coast. Next, as you move closer to the ocean, the panoramic image beheld earlier, gradually grows alive and the brilliant green water, along with, its beach become a conglomerate of activities. The people around here are as much a wonder as the sea and the sand; moreover, you will immediately distinguish the first timers from the seasoned beach goers. Newcomers have not yet learned to trust their lives to the mesmerizing, energy filled waters, at last, they submit to the allures of the waters, letting go of their defenses,......

Till a treaty was made to protectorate the country from 1843-1844 in the French colonial period. In 1893 it officially became colonized by France as the part of European scramble for Africa. After 67 years Ivory Coast gained its independence August 7, 1960 and it became a republic with a strong executive power that invested themselves much in there president. Ivory Coast relationship with the IMF is quite extensive they first borrowed money just twenty years after their independence. They borrowed for the first 6 years and then there’s a long gap where they did not borrow money until 2007 and 2008. Each time they borrowed money it was mainly 30 million or more with the max being 112 million in 1990. As they borrowed such large amounts the interest on the loans are so high that each payment that they make barley makes a dent on the debt owed. Although in the beginning of the transactions it seemed that the country was thriving it was said to be the” jewel of West Africa and throbbed as its economic engine” (Another big test for Africa 1). They made quite significant payments back to the IMF with in the first years of borrowing, but then seemed to fall with the large amounts of interest building in such little time. This lead to borrowing loans to pay off the interest which just kept them stuck in a cycle of debt. Ivory Coast’s most prominent......

Our Coast

...“LOVING OUR COASTS TO DEATH” Joel K. Bourne, Jr. July, 2006 National Geographic Loving our coasts to death is a very good title for this article. I say this because that is exactly what we are doing, killing our coasts. This article does a good job in explaining to people how we are killing our coasts, marine life, and eventually ourselves by dumping into the ocean, but this article also shows how people are saving our coasts from further pollution by getting out there and actually doing something that is good for our environment. This article is very interesting because of the fact that it brings in the perspective of ordinary people and what they do to help as well as the perspective of scientists and what they do to help. This is a very important subject to learn more about because if we do not stop dumping into the ocean than we will end up killing our oceans and ourselves. This article is also important because we can learn from the people that are trying to save our coasts. Loving our coasts to death is mostly about how certain people are trying to save our coasts from pollution in ways large or small, it also talks about how bad we are polluting our ocean’s coastlines and how that pollution can affect us. More and more people are moving to coastal counties, which means more pollution in and around that area and this article is trying open our eyes and tell us that polluting our coasts is threatening human health, marine resources, and putting our......

East Coast Yachts

...A. Parker University of the Potomac BUS 503 – Managerial Finance November 25, 2014 Professor Robert Shah Abstract Larissa Warren and Dan Ervin have been discussing the future of East Coast Yachts. The company has been experiencing fast growth, and the future looks like clear sailing. However, the fast growth means that the company’s growth can no longer be funded by internal sources, so Larissa and Dan have decided the time is right to take the company public. To this end, they have entered into discussions with the investment bank of Crowe & Mallard. The company has a working relationship with Robin Perry, the underwriter who assisted with the company’s previous bond offering. Crowe & Mallard have helped numerous small companies in the IPO process, so Larissa and Dan feel confident with this choice. Robin begins by telling Larissa and Dan about the process. Although Crowe & Mallard charged an underwriter fee of 4 percent on the bond offering, the underwriter fee is 7 percent on all initial stock offerings of the size of East Coast Yachts’ initial offering (Ross etal, 2013). Introduction Although Crowe & Mallard charged an underwriter fee of 4 percent on the bond offering, the underwriter fee is 7 percent on all initial stock offerings of the size of East Coast Yachts’ initial offering. Robin tells Larissa and Dan that the company can expect to pay about $1,800,000 in legal fees and expenses, $15,000 in SEC registration fees, and $20,000 in other......

Exclusive Coast

...Exclusive Coast Around the world, along our ocean’s coast, there are miles and miles of nature’s beautiful beaches. These alluring shores with sublime weather become prime real estate for those who can afford it. When someone buys the property they expect to own the land that comes with it: so a person that buys a beach house expects that their backyard, the beach, is their private land. However, most people feel that all beaches should be public for tourism and personal satisfaction. That one cannot own “nature.” Despite the many heated debates over this exigence and the many laws that have been passed, individuals should come to the conclusion that the economic and recreational needs of the general public are greater than the needs of a select few. Today in the United States, there is a total of 88,633 miles of shoreline, give or take a few miles (United States 225). The US government census defines shoreline as, “the term used to describe a more detailed measure of the seacoast” (225). They included islands and territories, as well as bays, rivers and lakes in their measurement. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration states that, “in 2010, 123.3 million people, or 39 percent of the nation’s population lived in counties directly on the shoreline” (National Ocean Service). They also expect that population to increase by 10 million people by 2020. With so many people in such a small area, it does not make sense for people to be blocking off their land. When...

Having landed them, and upon his return to the rally point he was told by the officer in charge that the conditions of the insertion point were not as exepected. The Marines were under attack from a large Japanese force and needed to be extracted. Munro volunteered to lead the boats back to the beach for the evacuation. He lead the boats in-shore under heavy enemy fire and proceeded to evacuate the marines still on the beach. Though the majority of the Marines had been loaded on the boats, but the remaining elements of the rear guard were having diffculty getting to the boats. He maneuvered himself and his boats into a postion to cover the last groups of men as they headed to the boat. In doing so he exposed himself to greater enemy fire and......

West Coast

...West Coast Trip West Coast of the United States is a well-known coast as a place to visit for the East Coast people to take a break or run away from the frostiness of snow during winter. Over winter break, I decided to spend two of my five weeks break at West Coast. It was a precipitous decision that I made because I was planning just to spend my winter break in Columbus, Ohio, because I didn’t have that much cost to go to West Coast, but then my friend forced me and she decided to sponsor my trip to west. It such a blessing to have that kind of friend in today’s selfish world. I was such a mess during Fall semester. I really need to fully use winter break to discover myself and see what I am capable of. Besides, I need to understand life as aging keeps hunting me and I have to learn on how to tolerate with people because the world has trillions of behavior in different person that I have met, I am meeting and the person that I am going to meet in my future. Before the trip started, I clear my mind from all the negative thoughts that I had in mind and brought only positive vibes with me. During the trip, I got to learn a lot about myself, learn to deal with complicated people and realize that we always need to be prepared. On the first day of my journey, I started to learn something about myself. It started with taking a flight to San Francisco. This is my first time getting on a domestic plane, alone. Actually it was my second time, but the first time was a flight from...

East Coast Rapist

...cigarettes to crimes committed throughout the east coast. Aaron Thomas aka The East Coast Rapist was detained after someone that knew him, tipped authorities of his current location. The Washington Post stated that Thomas was linked by genetic evidence to a series of rapes and other attacks on women that began in Maryland in 1997 and continued on to Virginia, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Thomas is described as a cold hearted and fearless predator that carefully stocked his female victims and when the time was right he would attack them with a fake gun or other dangerous weapons forcing them to a secluded area where he would then rape them. His rape history, which lasted a long twelve years and included about seventeen women from the age range of sixteen to forty six years old, came to an end after long countless hours spent by four different states were able to prove that his DNA matched the many committed crimes. After Thomas made a court appearance on a larceny charge in the New Haven area, police were able to recover a cigarette butt discarded by Thomas during a court break which provided the necessary DNA to pin him to the crimes. Thomas’ rape history began in the state of Maryland on Wednesday, February 19, 1997. The victim, a twenty five year old woman, stated that the attacker was riding a black bicycle when he approached her as she was walking home from work that evening.
