  • In the early months of 2023, six women turned up dead in and around Portland, Oregon, sparking rumors of a serial killer. Though police originally claimed they did not believe that the cases were connected, similarities emerged between four of the women, and one man linked them all. To the dismay of the public, not only did this suspect have multiple other crimes under his belt, but he had been granted early release from prison for fighting forest fires on the west coast. These are the stories of Kristin Smith, Charity Perry, Bridget Webster, Joanna Speaks, Ashley Real, and an unidentified Native woman. It’s also the story of Jesse Lee Calhoun.

  • In November of 2015, a 35-year-old woman left her Spokane, Washington home late one night to run an errand, leaving a note behind for her fiancé. When she never returned, her fiancé went looking for her, and discovered her locked car abandoned near a music venue with her purse and phone inside. When sightings of her acting strangely poured in from another side of town, suspicions of a mental health crisis were raised, until theories emerged about the two men who were last seen accompanying her, as well as her fiancé himself. This is the story of Deanne Hastings.

  • In January of 2002, a 20-year-old man was working a surveying job in a Georgia forest when he vanished without a trace. When his co-workers realized he was no longer standing in the line, they began their search for him, only to find one of his boots hanging from a barbed wire fence, with his work tools, his work pants, and twelve cents laying in the grass next to it. So where did he go, and what happened to him? This is the story of Christopher Thompkins.

  • In November of 2017, a 22-year-old woman went missing in Chicago after sending a string of urgent text messages to a friend. Nearly two weeks later, a 911 call was made from her cell phone, but the call ended almost as soon as it was made. When it was traced back to her phone, police discovered that the call originated from a nature preserve 45 minutes away from where she went missing. And as if the situation couldn’t get more perplexing, the location of her remains completely stumped the police. This is the story of Cheyann Klus.
