Murder on the IndyCar Circuit

Case Went Cold For Six Years Until Special Crimes Prosecutor Took It On

 

DENVER May 21, 2019: Cynthia Albrecht, the executive chef of the Penske-Marlboro racing team and darling of the IndyCar circuit, went missing on October 25, 1992-the night before her divorce from Michael Albrecht became final. Drivers and racing crews from across the country converged on "The Brickyard," site of the Indianapolis 500, to help search for her.

 

As the head mechanic for the Dick Simon racing team, known as "Crabby" across the race circuit, Michael had a reputation for bullying and abuse.  He'd immediately become a suspect in Cynthia's disappearance. But with a strong alibi, there was nothing authorities could do when he decided to take a vacation to Florida and skip a scheduled polygraph test and the search for his estranged wife.

 

Nor could law enforcement charge him when Cynthia's body was found a few weeks later in northern Indiana-minus her head. The case went cold for six years until a newly elected prosecutor allowed his deputies to charge Michael Albrecht with murder. But would they be able to prove his guilt?

 

This true crime legal thriller written by one of the prosecutors, Larry Sells, and journalist Margie Porter, runs at full throttle and will leave you on the edge of your seat right up to the checkered flag at final verdict.

Protest in Nepal against plan to cut trees to widen road

Oct 18, 2019

KATHMANDU, Nepal — More than 200 people rallied in Nepal's capital Thursday to protest government plans to cut down about 2,000 trees to widen a key road that circles the city. The protesters held signs urging the government to stop the plan to remove the trees on the outer edge of Kathmandu. The 27-kilometer (17-mile) Ring Road encircles the capital and is a key road network for the increasingly congested city. "These trees were controlling pollution and giving fresh air so they cannot be cut down to make roads," said Saurav Dhakal, a protester. "Kathmandu is suffering from massive air...
