In this week's Crime Scene, Matt Jablow takes you back to 1988.  On February 2 of that year, 11-year-old Latanya Wallace walked a few short blocks from her Reservoir Hill home to a library.  That was the last place she was seen alive.  Two days later, her body was found in a nearby alley. Because of the care in which her body was placed, police suspected her assailant might have been someone who knew her.  However, 26 years later, the case remains unsolved.

While the roles of depression and addiction in Robin William's suicide were the focus of most news stories about his death, perhaps the headlines should have focused on his recent diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, highlighting the intricate relationships between neurological diseases and mental health conditions. The U.S. health care system is woefully inadequate at addressing the overlap between the body, mind and soul in these patients. The anatomical, physiological and neurochemical changes in the brain associated with neurological disorders - such as stroke, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease - can exacerbate or worsen previously existing mental health conditions including depression and anxiety.

William Smith's disease has grim milestones. At 2, the Gambrills triplet known as Mick couldn't walk or talk as well as his siblings. In kindergarten, he started losing language and motor skills. At 12, he needed a wheelchair and a feeding tube. Doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital dedicated to treating his symptoms said he had an undiagnosed progressive neuromuscular disease. But a new test may provide something the family has long sought: a name. "The idea that there is something out there that can tell you [what's wrong]

The awfulness of Gaza goes on. So does the madness in Iraq and Syria. Wildfires burn through the West, while in Washington, D.C., our do-absolutely-nothing Congress prepares to adjourn, freeing up time for representatives and senators to go home and campaign to be re-elected so they can accomplish nothing for another two years.

Dorothy Grubb said she feared her boyfriend would kill her. She wrote in court papers that he threatened to do that, then throw her in his truck and drive off down the road. Two years later, according to police, Clyde Campbell followed through on that threat. Police charged the 53-year-old Campbell in Grubb's death Wednesday, a day after they found her body on the side of Peninsula Expressway in Dundalk. Investigators said Campbell loaded the body, wrapped in a tarp, into his Ford F-150 pickup truck.
