Title

'Lady in the Lake': An Unsolved Crime by Water Jurisdiction

Presentation Type

Poster Presentation

Abstract

The unsolved crime of a Michigan woman has caused people to question the importance of water boundaries and jurisdiction management. While many people are concerned with the outcome of the case, the investigation itself was inhibited by the jurisdictional issues of the lake in which her body was found. If the governing bodies in this case had clearer protocols and communication about the jurisdictional issue, maybe this woman’s story would have been brought to justice. Through a case-study examination, I plan to break-down the failures of the governing bodies in this criminal case and why prioritization of water jurisdiction is important in criminal cases.
