  • In 1983 tragedy struck in East Texas. As the Friday night lights crowd cheered on their beloved hometown football teams, five employees of a local fast food restaurant were being gunned down in an isolated oil field. Their murders would shake the town of Kilgore Texas to the core. The five families of the victims, along with the Kilgore Police department, the Texas Rangers, and the FBI would search for justice for 20 years. But still, even after all that work there are more questions than answers.

  • Behind the walls of a gated community we have another wife found dead in a bathtub with her husband desperately trying to save her life. But it was too late for beautiful 50 year old Michele MacNeill. She was pronounced dead hours later at the hospital. Although the medical examiner would deem her death one of natural causes her family would stop at nothing to prove that the her husband of 30 years had been the one to murder her.

The search for him lasted three years when his body was found in a shallow grave...now the question is, which member of the cult did it?

  • During the weekend of May 14, 2005 someone was watching the Groene/McKenzie household. They stalked the family from a fair distance away as they enjoyed the late Spring weekend in Idaho. At night they peered into the family’s windows using night vision goggles so they could learn the floorplan of their home and watch the children sleep. This is the stranger that you have always been warned about.

  • Amityville, NY, located on the south shores of Long Island is not known for its seaside beauty and small town quaintness despite being located in the shadows of New York City. Rather, it is a town that is haunted. It is haunted by a house that sits on busy Ocean Ave located right off the Montauk Highway. It is not the ghosts that haunt Amityville, as anyone beside the residents think, it’s the memories that surround one of the most grisly crimes the island has ever seen.
    The true story behind the Amityville Horror House, as most of the country will come to know it as, is more horrifying than any book, movie, or bad sequel could ever be.

  • Sage Smith was a 19 year old transgender woman when she disappeared from the downtown area of Charlottesville, VA on November 20, 2012. In today’s case we discuss her background, the circumstances surrounding her case, and question why her story has not been as told as other missing teen’s cases. Sage, and someone else closely related to the case, are still missing.
    The investigation into the disappearance has turned into a homicide investigation and the police, as of 2018, consider Erik McFadden a suspect again. But as you will listen you will learn of many suspects.

  • In the winter of 1998 there did not seem to be a more idyllic family than the Trovers in Gillette Wyoming. But in early December of that year the perfection would come to a screeching halt when the family was brutally attacked in their own home. The Trovers had just returned from a night out at a local bar and grill and was preparing for bed when the power to their house was cut, and the nightmare began.

But the mourning did not stop there. Frank had been found in the family owned factory alongside his father's business partner and his brother-in-law. His sister was found in the entrance way.

  • On the night of Tuesday May 14, 1996 a call came into the Virginia Beach dispatch. A man was frantically screaming into the phone. "Please help, my wife, my god", he yelled between labored breaths. Dispatch was slowly able to get all of the information out of him. He told them where he lived, which was a condo complex near the naval base. But what the man said next shocked even the veteran dispatcher. As his wife could be heard gasping for breath beside him he said, "I killed him. I was attacked and when I came to a man was raping and stabbing my wife. So I got my gun and I killed him."

  • In September of 1998 a foul smell and blockage was reported by the citizens in Redlands, CA within a two block radius. The town’s DPW went out to clear the blockage. But instead of hair, tree roots, or disposable wipes (fun facts from John), they found a human skull. It took the police hours and the uncovering of all the manholes that were interconnected for one mile to find the entire skeleton. It was clear the person had been young. A child of 13-15 years old by the size of the bones. No one was saying it but everyone was thinking it, this seemed ripped from the pages of Stephen King’s It. And really, who would have done something like this besides a monster like that? Although it was not a fictional child murdering monster that committed the crimes we will talk about today, the theme from his story can still be applied- the idea that lurking beneath the idyllic façade of any American town something more sinister hides.

  • In today’s case we examine a honeymoon a young Belgian couple took on a Mediterranean island in 1995. What is supposed to be the happiest time in their life turns to tragedy when the bride has to bring her new husband home in a coffin. The death that occurred on that trip led to an international manhunt and the uncovering of a diabolical scheme that seemed more fit for a movie than it did the real world.

  • The murder of Gregory Witman on October 2, 1998 was brutal. The 13 year old boy walked home from his bus stop after school and was ambushed the second he walked through the threshold of his home. He was stabbed over 64 times and practically decapitated with a pen knife.
    The investigation into the crime took only 12 hours. The police concluded it was Gregory’s 15 year old brother, Zach. Join us as we discuss if Zach could have done this and what his fate was.
