(Cross-posted from Topix) On the many Mike Tracey documentaries which he filmed in which Lou Smit was a centerpiece, there is always a bit of footage Tracey likes to use which shows plaques that Smit received, detailing the names, dates and case numbers of the homicides he supposedly solved. But wait -- what is this? I was going through one of the documentaries to see if I could examine some of the names for myself and research the circumstances of the victims's deaths. Just now, I came across, on Smit's plaque, one Lloyd Samuelson, killed in 1971. So, since his name appears on the plaque, the solution to his case is supposed to be to Smit's credit, yes? Not so fast. Look at this article: http://www.csindy.com/gyrobase/Content?oid=oid:14431 As you will see, Lloyd Samuelson is listed as a COLD case, not a solved one. As I looked further, I found more names. Jean Begin. McKinley Collins. Linda Thompson. Mary Byrd. Brenda Pierce. Frank Conroy. Virgil Gambles. These names are on Smit's plaques of accomplishment, but as of 2005, they were not accomplishments AT ALL. What sort of misleading process is going on here? Did Tracey perpetrate a fraud, making Smit appear to be a man of great detective skill, when he turns out to have merely been given acknowledgement that he worked on cases which he then failed to solve?
