In 1891, a mysterious figure appeared on the streets of London, dispensing pills to poor young women who then died in agony. Suspicion came to center on a Scottish-Canadian doctor with a dark past in North America. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll describe the career of the Lambeth Poisoner, whose victims remain uncounted. We'll also consider a Hungarian Jules Verne and puzzle over an ambiguous sentence. Intro: How can an investor responsibly divest herself of stock in a company that she feels has acted immorally?

The Chicago Sun-Times released an article that contained graphic details:- Jelani's jawbone had allegedly been 'sawed' out.- His liver, spleen and brain were unaccounted for.- His genitalia was said to be 'flayed'. Jelani's cause of death has literally just been confirmed - the LaSalle County Coroner has said that he drowned.  His family dispute that this was suicide or an accident.  We discuss Jelani's disappearance, death and the investigation following in this episode.  We have mixed it up and our case updates are now at the end of the episode, so stay tuned after Jelani's story.  This week's updates:- We are sick of the Brian/ Gabby conspiracy theories and click bait.

REPOST: After decades of accusations and a weeks-long federal trial, R.

I figure now is as good a time as any to repost this interview with journalist Jim Derogatis, who did as much as anyone to put him in jail. For fifteen years, DeRogatis was the pop music critic for the Chicago Sun-Times. It was while there that Jim and his colleague Abdon Pallasch became the first reporters to expose R. Kelly's sex trafficking cult. His book Soulless: The Case Against R. Kelly both exposes what rich people get away with in this country and gives the reader a first-hand account of the work that investigative journalists do.

Unaccompanied minors are among the thousands evacuated from Afghanistan

There were hugs, smiles and a tight embrace at Toronto airport earlier this month as a 3-year-old Afghan boy reunited with his father.The boy, who was not named because he is a minor, was separated from his family on Aug. 26, when there was a suicide attack at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.He was put on a plane out of the country and spent two weeks at an orphanage in Qatar, according to Qatari and Canadian media reports. Officials with the UN as well as the Qatari government helped reach his family in Canada, and he was able to reunite with them.Related: 'We are still here': Afghan UN employees worry about their safetyBut this boy is lucky.In the chaos of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the mass evacuation from Kabul, a number of unaccompanied minors ended up on flights out of the country. Now comes the difficult task of reuniting them with their families or, for those who don't have any relatives, helping them find new homes.Right now, there are at least 300 Afghan children who were separated from their families during the evacuation, according to Wendy Young, president of Kids in Need of Defense, an organization that provides support for unaccompanied minors.“We know of children whose parents were killed in the process, and we know of children who were separated and placed on a different flight than their parent or their guardian and the child is in one country and the parents in another.” Wendy Young, Kids in Need of Defense, president“We know of children whose parents were killed in the process, and we know of children who were separated and placed on a different flight than their parent or their guardian and the child is in one country and the parents in another,” she said.Related: Minerals, drugs and China: How the Taliban might finance their new Afghan governmentYoung said that has spurred a global effort to help reunite Afghan children separated from their parents and also find housing for unaccompanied minors — children who evacuated with a friend or relative and also some who are orphans. The US State Department and the Department of Health and Human Services didn't respond to questions from The World about which countries unaccompanied Afghan minors have been relocated to, but earlier this month, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited some of them at Ramstein Air Base in Germany.Some unaccompanied Afghan minors have started arriving in the US. This week, about 75 unaccompanied minors arrived in Chicago, according to city and federal officials, the Chicago Sun Times reported.Others are staying at the Fort Bliss military base in El Paso, Texas, where Barbara Ammirati, deputy director for child protection in emergencies with Save the Children, has been part of the team offering support.Ammirati said that when the children arrive and it is determined they are unaccompanied, they are immediately separated from the general population at the base and placed in shelters.“It's a very temporary accommodation,” she said. “It's a small home — one room — and we've set it up. ... it looks like a bedroom with a welcoming living space.”No more than two minors, she said, stay in these facilities at a time and most of the minors she has worked with are between 15 and 17.Ammirati said these Afghan kids have been through a traumatic experience, but they are ready to start their new lives in the US.Related: Afghan women sidelined under new Taliban rule: ‘This country places no value on me as a woman'“They are happy to be in the United States. The first questions are, ‘Can I go to school, if I go here, will I go to school?' A university student is desperate to get back to classes,” she said.Need for a more permanent statusYoung, from Kids in Need of Defense, said she is concerned about the children's immigration status because Afghan children fall into a unique category.“They've been evacuated but they haven't been processed and vetted as the rigorous and, frankly, bureaucratic and lengthy process that normally happens through refugee resettlement,” she said. “They haven't spontaneously arrived here, so this is why they're in parole status.” (An individual who is ineligible to enter the US as a refugee, immigrant or nonimmigrant may be "paroled" into the US by the Secretary of Homeland Security.)Related: The Taliban want international recognition. Countries are debating.That means they face a lot of uncertainty. Earlier this month, Young's organization published a set of guidelines to protect Afghan children arriving in the US.Meanwhile, people from Afghan communities in the US have been springing into action. For example, the Afghan American Foundation recently hosted a Zoom session to explain what becoming a foster parent entails.Nadia Hashimi, a pediatrician and writer, started off the conversation.“For these children, this may be an event in their lives that stays very fresh. I think trauma does that. Trauma has a very deep footprint on the soul and so the easier, and the more comforted we can have these children feel in this moment and this process, the better it is.”Nadia Hashimi, pediatrician and writer“For these children, this may be an event in their lives that stays very fresh,” she said. “I think trauma does that. Trauma has a very deep footprint on the soul and so the easier, and the more comforted we can have these children feel in this moment and this process, the better it is.”About 800 people across the country were on the call, Hashimi said.Unaccompanied children arriving in the US is nothing new.Young said in recent years, the official US response has been more about law enforcement than child protection. In the case of these Afghan children, she said, the approach is still a work in progress.“What I hope happens is that we'll look back at it and figure out what lessons learned there are because what we see whether you're looking at the Central American situation or the Afghan situation is that these kids need our help,” she said. “And we owe it to them to have a system in place that kicks in rapidly and ensures that they get everything that they need including family reunification where appropriate.”

But cannabis remains dominated by white growers and sellers. And confusion remains, despite new legislation and a new round of dispensary license lotteries this summer.

In June, the U.S. military issued a report saying that out of 144 sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena, they were only able to explain one of them. Or put another way: The government has admitted to encountering UFOs that defy explanation. This report may have brought renewed attention toward the sky, but Chicago is home to the nation's first organization dedicated to the scientific study of UFOs. The Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) was founded in the 1970s by a born-and-bred Chicagoan who had studied these phenomena for the government. Host Jacoby Cochran talks with current CUFOS head Mark Rodeghier about his work, including the investigation of a UFO sighting at O'Hare Airport in 2006. Guest: Mark Rodeghier, President and Scientific Director, Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) Some good news to get you through: Jacoby will be at Chicago Sun-Times' "Local Lives" virtual event Wednesday night. He'll be performing alongside other local storytellers and artists under the theme "Making Chicago Home." Follow us on Twitter: @CityCastChicago Sign up for our newsletter: chicago.citycast.fm
