Jesse Lee Calhoun // 378

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. Sources: 1.

Deanne Hastings // 377

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.

In January of 2008, a 26-year-old pregnant woman and her young daughter were found dead along a railroad track in South Carolina, leading investigators to believe that she had purposefully taken their lives.

In November of 2017, a 22-year-old woman went missing in Chicago after sending a string of urgent text messages to a friend.

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.

Jeremiah Lexer & Lizzie Borden // 345

In July of 1902, a wealthy Tennessee plantation owner went on a murderous rampage in the middle of the night, killing his entire family with an ax. But what they found at his home after his death was even more horrifying. Since the tragic slaying of six innocent people that night, and dozens of others over the years, the home has been turned into one of the scariest haunted houses in America: Frightmare Manor. This is the story of murderer Jeremiah Lexer. But 10 years earlier, an even more well-known ax murder case occurred just a few states away when a young woman is believed to have murdered her father and stepmother. So this is also the story of Lizzie Borden.

Christine & Christa Belusko // 341

In September of 1991, a 30-year-old woman vanished from a lodge in Pennsylvania. Although she was found shortly after, badly beaten, strangled, and burned on a beach in New York, it took 30 years to identify her body. And when police did, it only deepened the mystery, because, as it turns out, her young daughter is still missing. This is the story of Christine Belusko, and her daughter Christa.

Jeannette DePalma // 339

In August of 1972, a 16-year-old girl went missing in New Jersey. Although police initially insisted she had run away, her body was found six weeks later at the top of a cliff near an abandoned quarry. Due to the disturbing and controversial scene in which her body was discovered, her death was ruled a homicide, and some suspect she was actually a ritual sacrifice for demonic activity.

Brandon Embry // 338

In September of 2019, a 33-year-old man was found dead in his North Carolina apartment. Despite the scene suggesting a brutal attack and murder, his death was ultimately ruled a case of pneumonia. But considering his girlfriend was known for her obsessive, violent behavior, his family is pushing to have his case reopened. This is the story of Brandon Embry.

Yuba County Five // 334

In February of 1978, a group of five men went missing in the lush wilderness of Northern California while on their way home from a college basketball game. After the snow melted in June, four of their bodies were recovered, scattered miles from their abandoned car. As for the fifth member of their group, he mysteriously vanished altogether. As their causes of death were revealed, police wondered what had driven the men into the forest in the first place, and why things unfolded the way they did. These are the stories of Ted Weiher, Jack Madruga, Bill Sterling, and Jackie Huett, and Gary Mathias, also known, as the Yuba County Five.

Storm & Adagio Talifero // 325

In June of 2018, a vegan blogger and his son allegedly set sail from California, bound for Hawaii on a three month excursion. After they failed to contact family, it seemed as if they had both vanished at sea. But when one of their bodies washed ashore, their family began to suspect that there was never a boating trip after all. As the father’s complicated history came to light, far more sinister theories came into play. These are the disappearances of Gerald “Storm” Talifero, and his son, Adagio Talifero.

Shannan Gilbert // 313

In May of 2010, a 23-year-old woman went missing after meeting at a client’s house on Long Island. Her last known interaction can be heard on a strange and eerie 911 call that was over 20 minutes long. The woman’s body was discovered 19 months after she disappeared on a beach in the neighborhood from which she vanished. But she was not alone. Also buried on the beach were ten other bodies, all of which are believed to have been claimed by the prolific Long Island Serial Killer. This is the story of Shannan Gilbert.

Paige Birgfeld // 308

In June of 2007, a newly single mother of three vanished from her Colorado home. Shortly after, her car was found burned out, but it would take years for her body to be uncovered. Once police learned she was living what they referred to as a double-life, many potential suspects added themselves to her story, with one person standing out among the rest.

But if that really is how the day went, as he described, why was her car seen driving down the highway in the opposite direction of their home? And why has he refused to assist in the search efforts?

Grant Solomon // 300

In July of 2020, an 18-year-old man was run over by his own truck in a supposed “freak accident”. But when none of the evidence at the scene suggested that that was what had actually happened, suspicions fell on his father. Disturbing information about his father has come out since that fateful day, as the family continues to fight for justice for him, as well as what happened to his sister.

Amber and Josh Hilberling // 299

In June of 2011, a young man fell 17 stories to his death out of his Oklahoma apartment window. Surprisingly, his pregnant wife admitted to pushing him out, but claims it was an accident. After being put on trial and imprisoned, she was found dead in her cell, and although her death was ruled a suicide, her family strongly disagrees, and believes it was a murder.

Tiffany Valiante // 298

In July of 2015, an 18-year-old woman ran from her parents’ New Jersey home during an argument, and never returned. Just hours after being captured on a security camera heading in the direction of the woods, her remains were recovered on a nearby train track. Although it appeared, at first glance, that she had been hit by a train and killed, her family believes that this was a cover up for her murder. This is the story of Tiffany Valiante.

Jennifer Kesse // 293

In January of 2006, a 24-year-old woman was last seen leaving work on a Monday evening. She was home all night, and it even appeared as if she had woken up the next morning and gotten ready for work. But when she never made it in to work that day, and wasn’t answering her phone, her family and boyfriend grew concerned. When investigators located her car parked down the street, they saw an unknown person on surveillance footage emerging from the car and walking away. This is the story of Jennifer Kesse.

Gretchen Anthony // 284

In March of 2020, a Florida woman came down with an acute case of Covid–or so her friends and family thought. When they couldn’t get ahold of her, they filed a missing persons report. Then, a search of her home revealed evidence of bloodstains and bleach, and there was still no sign of her. This is the story of Gretchen Anthony.

Belinda Temple // 276

In January of 1999, a 30-year-old pregnant mother was found murdered in her Texas bedroom closet. Police suspected her high school football coach husband from the beginning, but it wasn’t until eight years later that they would have enough evidence to convict him. And even after two trials, he still maintains that she was killed by burglars. So what really happened? This is the murder of Belinda Temple.

The WVU Coed Murders // 275

In January of 1970, two freshman students at West Virginia University disappeared while hitchhiking after seeing a movie. While police originally thought the girls may have run away, suspicious letters began to arrive that suggested otherwise. After their beheaded bodies were found, police began a relentless search to find their ruthless killer. But so far, all they’ve gotten is a false confession. These are the unsolved murders of Karen Ferrell and Mared Malarik. BONUS EPISODES patreon.com/goingwestpodcast CASE SOURCES 1.

The Snaggletooth Killer // 265

In December of 1991, a bar manager was closing up for the night when she was attacked and murdered by an unknown man. When bite marks on her chest led investigators to a local patron, he was arrested and for her first-degree murder. But would his teeth impressions be enough evidence to prove his guilt? With the re-surfacing of a mysterious note left at the bar the night after the murder, and the testing of certain DNA evidence, all would be uncovered. This is the story of Kim Ancona, a case also called The Snaggletooth Killer.

In 1968, the decomposing body of a young woman was found on the side of the road in Kentucky.

But in the 90s, a young man became obsessed with bringing her home to her family, and he eventually did just that. This is the story of Barbara Ann Hackmann, also known as Tent Girl.

But as witnesses came forward, she appeared to have a stalker who had lured her from her home on the very computer where she sat every night to write. This is the murder of Trisha Autry.

“Is this Susie’s Mom?”  “Yes it is.”  “Well I’m the guy that took her from you.” This was the type of taunting phone call received by the mother of a young girl kidnapped at their Montana campsite. The search for her abductor led the FBI to a vicious serial killer, and began the process of creating psychological profiles in order to catch predators.

Moriah Wilson // 207

In May of 2022, a 25-year-old elite bicyclist traveled to Austin, Texas for a race. But after hanging out with another cyclist and previous romantic interest of hers, she was murdered. When police sorted through the evidence at the scene, they began to believe that the girlfriend of man the victim had just hung out with was most likely behind the killing. But before they could issue a warrant for her arrest, she had already fled the state. This is the story of Moriah Wilson, and the search for Kaitlin Armstrong.
