  • On Thursday, November 27th, 1986, 28-year-old Connie Jane Bibb returned home after a holiday dinner at a friend’s house. It was her senior year at the University of Texas Austin as a special education major, and the religious woman looked forward to a life of teaching and missionary work. But senselessly, her life was cut short. All nine of Connie’s roommates were either attending the Longhorns V. Aggies game on campus, or out of town for the holiday, leaving her alone at the house Thanksgiving night. An intruder broke in, his intentions unknown, and after a violent struggle, Connie Bibb was murdered. It was a time when the cops were doing everything they could to suppress information about the Hyde Park Rapist, endangering North Austin’s female population, and the troubling rise in the city’s crime rate. They could not, of course hide Connie’s killing, but the local media’s attention span turned away quickly, and the case has been seldom reported on since.

    If you have any information about the murder of Connie Jane Bibb, please contact the Austin Police Cold Case & Missing Persons Unit through the department’s homicide tipline at (512)477-3588 or by calling the capital area crime stoppers hotline at (512)472-8477

  • Nearly a year after the murder of Father Patrick Ryan of Saint William Catholic Church in Denver City, Texas, a confession call came into Albuquerque, New Mexico 911. The confessor had already been interviewed by Odessa Police Detectives and eliminated as a suspect, but frustrated detectives and politically motivated prosecutors were chomping at the bit to close the case. Though the only evidence that this man, 26-year-old James Harry Reyos, had beaten the priest to death at the Sand and Sage Motel in Odessa was his drunken confession, he was convicted of the crime. The problem is, Reyos did not kill Father Ryan. Part 3 of 3.

  • As Odessa Police Detectives investigated the December 21st, 1981 murder of Father Patrick Ryan, violence against other men of the cloth continued in the south and southwest United States, among other places. When a fairly similar attack or slaying of a priest occurred, the cops were on it, but they failed to make a connection every time. Was the violence related or were the holy men simply easy targets for opportunists? Odessa Police Detectives, at least, believed the latter.

  • Sheree Warren left her job in Salt Lake City on a mild October evening in 1985. She told a coworker she was headed to meet her estranged husband, Charles Warren, at a car dealership. But she never made it, Sheree vanished. When her car mysteriously surfaced weeks later, hundreds of miles away in Las Vegas, no one could say how it got there. When a young mother disappears under unexplained circumstances, police always turn suspicious eyes towards the husband. And although there was distrust around Charles Warren, he wasn’t the only suspect when Sheree went missing. She also had a boyfriend, a former cop named Cary Hartmann, who lived a sinister double life. Season three follows two suspects– men who both raised suspicion for investigators. But with two strong persons of interest with competing facts and evidence, it muddied the murder investigation. This season, host Dave Cawley, digs into the lives of these two men, the details of the case and examines the intersections between domestic abuse and sexual violence.

    The COLD team seeks to answer the question: what really happened to Sheree Warren?

  • When Father Patrick Ryan disappeared from Denver City, Texas on December 21st, 1981, his congregants thought he’d gone to help someone or was called away to Plains, the other Yoakum County town where he was priest. By Christmas Day, however, after missing three Masses, they were worried and reported Father Ryan missing. Meanwhile, 85 miles to the southeast, police detectives in Odessa were investigating a mystery of their own – the murder of a John Doe whose body was found in a seedy, highway side motel.

  • Almost immediately upon the San Antonio Police taking to social media to try and get the word out about missing child Lina Sardar Khil, things got ugly. Completely fabricated details about what happened that supported bigoted theories, victim blaming, and unhinged conspiracy theories that had everyone from the founder of Eagles Flight Advocacy & Outreach to the assistant to United States Senator from Texas John Cornyn in on...something never fully fleshed out. But things got even scarier as Lina’s father was accosted and almost assaulted, more than once, and as YouTube influencers and TikTokers faked volunteering for searches to create content and stalk those involved in the effort. Part 2 of 2.

    If you have any information about the disappearance of Lina Sardar Khil, please call the San Antonio Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit at (210)207-7660, Crime Stoppers of San Antonio at (210)224-7867, or the FBI’s San Antonio field office at (210)225-6741

  • The Sardar Khils came to San Antonio, Texas from the Khost Province of Afghanistan in 2019, after being granted a special visa by the United States. Thanks to a supportive and uplifting Afghan refugee community there, the family landed on their feet and their lives seemed to be heading in the right direction, a good direction. On December 20th, 2021, however, Riaz and Zarmeena Sardar Khil were met with a tragedy far worse than living in fear in their homeland, when their three-year-old daughter Lina vanished. Though they responded to this crisis fairly well, the San Antonio Police failed to find so much as a trace of the missing little girl. Part 1 of 2.

    If you have any information about the disappearance of Lina Sardar Khil, please call the San Antonio Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit at (210)207-7660, Crime Stoppers of San Antonio at (210)224-7867, or the FBI’s San Antonio field office at (210)225-6741

  • The investigation into Mary Lou Morris’s October 12th, 2000 murder was going nowhere for Harris County Texas Sheriff’s Office detectives. All the physical evidence had literally gone up in flames, which was perhaps the biggest clue – that her killer either planned the terrible crime carefully or had plenty of time after to cover their tracks. Finding a motive was damn near as impossible. Mary Lou’s daughter Marilyn was 25 years old at the time, and vividly remembers the day her mother went missing and her smoldering car was found. She noticed plenty to cause her to be suspicious of one man then and in the proceeding years, another inserted himself into the case causing further confusion.

    Very special thanks to Marilyn for speaking with us for this episode

  • While the investigation into the murder of 48-year-old Mary Lou Morris was just beginning, another woman – 39-year-old Mary Teresa Morris – was killed brutally. Though there was far more evidence to be had in Mary Teresa’s case, Harris County Sheriff’s Office Detectives came up empty handed. As they investigated the usual suspect – Mary Teresa’s husband – another seemingly good suspect emerged, one who seemed to have it out for the victim. While potential motive was there, however, clues tying either man to the scene of the crime were virtually nonexistent, no matter what the media lead readers and viewers to believe. Part 2 of 3.

  • On October 12th, 2000, 48-year-old Mary Morris left her Baytown, Texas home headed for work. Later that afternoon, when her husband discovered she’d never made it, he reported her missing and went searching alongside his stepdaughter. At 5 PM that day, Mary’s car was found smoldering after having been set afire. The day of Mary Lou Morris’s funeral, October 16th, 2000, another woman was discovered dead in her vehicle in northwest Houston, about 37 miles away. A connection between these two heinous crimes, perhaps, would have never been theorized if it weren’t for the fact that the second woman’s name was also Mary Morris. Part 1 of 2.

  • Fort Worth, Texas in the 1970s was a stomping ground for killers. In February of that year, 25-year-old June Ward was brutally murdered and thrown on the side of West Fuller. While June’s case hardly got the press and investigative effort she deserved, a slaying that occurred in the summer got much less. On June 4th, 1977, workers cleaning up at Sycamore Park south of downtown found the body of 31-year-old Ora Lee Prescott. After quickly identifying who they thought her killer was and then failing to produce sufficient evidence to charge him, the Fort Worth Police simply gave up, leaving her casefile to collect dust, by all indications, for 45 years now. Tragically, Ora Lee’s daughter, too, was slain by a serial rapist and two-time convicted murderer almost 20 years after her mother.

    If you have any information about the unsolved murder of Ora Lee Prescott, please contact the Fort Worth Police Cold Case Unit at (817)392-4307 or email [email protected]

  • Detectives had few leads in the April 11th, 1976, slaying of 38-year-old Joyce Packey Stein. But they did have a weirdo, the victim’s boyfriend Dr. Gary Ferris. Perhaps prematurely satisfied with the alibis of other persons of interest, particularly Joyce’s abusive ex-husband Stanley, the Terrell Hills Police and Bexar County Sheriff’s Office put on their blinders and pursued Dr. Gary with fervor. But was the man’s odd behavior simply come from his inability to cope with his girlfriend’s brutal murder by gunshot? Part 3 of 3.

  • 38-year-old Joyce Packey Stein was found lying in a pool of blood on April 12th, 1976. As Terrell Hills and San Antonio PDs began investigating the murder scene and collecting interviews alongside the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, Joyce’s ex-husband Stanley and boyfriend Dr. Ferris become suspicious to police for their odd actions and behaviors. When a so-called “little black book” is found, it creates problems for Detectives as they pursue many leads and eventually leads to a free for all feast of the imagination for local tabloid-style newspapers – the only kind that seems to have existed in San Antonio at the time.

  • In the moonlight hours of April 11th, 1976, gunshots rang out in the small, suburban town of Terrell Hills, Texas. Many heard or were awakened by the terrifying commotion, and while some might have believed there was some trouble at the nearby bar, the shots actually occurred in a home there. The home of 38-year-old Joyce Packey Stein, who was found the following day lying in a pool of blood. Divorced the previous year after a long and abusive marriage, Joyce was no stranger to tragedy. She’d seen plenty in her short life. But who would want her dead? According to newspaper articles written by hack reporters foaming at the mouth to get creative off someone else’s tragedy, there were plenty of people. Part 1 of 3.

  • The year 1969 is one of the most historically eventful years in the history of the United States. Pop culture, counterculture, culture wars, the fight for equal rights, and a war that seemed to neither have an end nor purpose. But in the Summer of 69, folks in Fort Worth, Texas and the surrounding areas took respite from the stresses of this vital but anxiety inducing year by hunting down a thing. Reports of a creature who lived in the deep, dense thicket on Lake Worth’s Greer Island who came out only at night, seemingly to terrorize lovers in their parked cars. By the time the summer ended, nearly 100 folks had claimed they’d caught a glimpse of this half-goat, half-man who quickly became known as The Lake Worth Monster. To this day, no one knows what really happened; was the thing a hoax or was it an unknown species – a monster?

    We hope you enjoy listening to this special Halloween episode, this palate cleanser of sorts, as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

  • In 2014, Barry Hinkle moved up to the position of Chief of Police in Blue Mound, Texas. While his responsibilities certainly grew, Hinkle still actively sought to solve the 1976 slayings of Kevin, Brian, Fae, and Wayne Joplin, and family friend Terry Trice. He’d uncovered, or simply investigated, something no investigator in the case ever had – a jailhouse letter written by an inmate to his wife. It implicated a man named Johnny Cotton. As Hinkle investigated Cotton and pieced together a timeline that for the most part was not public knowledge, the jailhouse letter seemed to match. And it looked like the sole surviving Joplin might have hired a man to kill his entire family and set up his former friend as a patsy.
