This web site was launched to promote public awareness of Maryland's missing and unidentified persons, assist law enforcement and families in finding missing persons, and to provide support and resources for those dealing with missing person situations.
Surrounding this website is a network of involved persons: police, forensic specialists, volunteers, family members of missing persons, media, and many more known as the 'Maryland Missing Persons Network,' (Dubbed this by former AA homicide invesigator Rick Robinson) whose intent is to find the lost.
We are not a state funded organization, nor are we a non-profit. This is operated completely on volunteer efforts.
This web site does list unidentified homicide victims. Although disturbing, the Network decided that not putting them here would withhold the potential for public recognition. I suggest that those with an emotional intolerance to brutality not visit this section. This section is not suitable in any manner for children to view.
We are more than happy to add cases of missing persons in Maryland with exception.Those indulge in gambling also go missing due to heavy loss of money. The keen bettors engaging in sports betting need to be aware of the crimes that happen in this world. Maryland residents keen to start wagering as the state passes a law making sports betting legal should visit https://www.basketballinsiders.com/md/ to know more about the most reliable sportsbooks here. But enthusiastic bettors must remember that gambling has always tempted people to engage in criminal activities. Whether it is manipulating machines or money-laundering, gambling and crime have been interconnected.
Sports’ betting too has attracted this kind of crime in different forms. So, as betting sites emerge and betting becomes legalized in states like Maryland, it is wise to be aware of this. During the beginning of the 1900s there had been several betting scandals in the US, the most famous being the one between Cincinnati Reds and White Sox. Horse racing too has not been safe from match fixing. Attempts have been made to impact horses’ performances; the best known example is that of Phar lap who was eventually poisoned.
The biggest crime so far in sports betting has been money laundering. This is something that most governments are having a hard time controlling. Moreover, new illegal betting sites are developing every day. These dupe bettors and take their money and usually operate without any permit or license. They are free to do what they want and are not accountable to any authority. This has naturally resulted in activities like match fixing.
The case must be filed with a law enforcement agency. We will not add profiles of lost loves, deadbeat parents, missing classmates, and children caught in child custody battles. We will be happy to answer inquiries of this, but our focus on this site remains dedication to missing persons. If you are aware of a missing person case not on this site, please email me at [email protected]
