The Assassination of Alton Peek

34-year-old Alton Peek, Red River County Precinct 4 Commissioner, had everything going for him. He’d been working his way into local politics since high school and was moving up. He had the admiration and respect of the community, particularly in his hometown, Boxelder, Texas. Alton had a beautiful family, a wife and two young boys. So, when he was shot to death while feeding his cattle in August of 1996, a motive, perhaps, perplexed the Red River County Sheriff’s Office the most. Alton Peek wasn’t robbed, he had no financial problems, his political position wasn’t one most folks would kill for. Rumors swirled for years as the case became steeped in controversy, just as they had concerning a case that happened the year before Alton Douglas Peek’s murder: the disappearance of Jennifer Joyce Bench. But as it grew cold and left the local newspaper headlines, they settled. 12 years later, an arrest – shocking to some and no surprise to others – brought everything back to the forefront. However, nothing stuck.If you have any information about the 1996 murder of Alton Peek or the 1995 disappearance of Jennifer Bench please contact the Red River County Sheriff’s Office at (903) 427-3838.You can support Gone Cold – Texas True Crime and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us at https://www.gonecold.comFollow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

The Murder of Laura Danka: The “Good Samaritan”

26-year-old Luara Pippin Danka had everything going for her in 1980 – a solid job, a nice little bungalow not far from Corpus Christi Bay, and most importantly, her two children. She’d come to Texas several years before with her husband, but they’d since divorced and were splitting up there time with the kids cooperatively and amicably, by all indications. But in April of that year, on a day seemingly like any other save the fact that it was Easter Sunday, Laura disappeared. Her body was found three days later. She’d been brutally murdered and dumped just outside Corpus Christi city limits. The Nueces County Sheriff’s Office found few clues and even fewer folks with a motive to kill Laura.If you have any information about the murder of Laura Pippin Danka, please call the Nueces County Sheriff’s Office at 361-887-2222 or Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477.You can support Gone Cold – Texas True Crime and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us at https://www.gonecold.comFollow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

Bridgette Gearen Part 2: The Men in the Dark Car

Soon after the murder of 28-year-old Bridgette Gearen at Crystal Beach, Texas, Galveston County Sheriff’s Office investigators came upon a lead that would be the impetus and direction of their investigation. A dark colored SUV was reported as the vehicle driven by Bridgette’s abductor(s). Throughout the past one and a half decades, Lt. Tommy Hansen, who has continued to work the case almost 15 years past retirement, has found the right avenue to investigate and identified strong suspects, but has not been able to collect the evidence needed to satisfy the Galveston County District Attorney.

Bridgette Gearen Part 1: Killing on Crystal Beach

In July of 2007, 28-year-old Bridgette Gearen took her little girl to Crystal Beach, located on the Bolivar Peninsula on the Texas coast. A few couples from the law firm where she worked had rented a beach house for the weekend, and as a hard-working mother, Bridgette was looking forward to the down time. At about the weekend’s halfway point, the young mother left the house alone to wait outside for some of the others with whom she was going to take a midnight drive on the beach. When the others came down, however, Bridgette Gearen was nowhere to be found. The following day, she was found viciously murdered near the water’s edge. With few clues found at the scene, Galveston County Sheriff’s Office investigators scrambled to come up with leads to follow.If you have any information about the 2007 murder of Bridgette Lynn Gearen, please contact the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office at (409)766-2300 or (866)248-8477.You can support Gone Cold – Texas True Crime and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us at https://www.gonecold.comFollow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

The Murder of Paula Davenport Part 2: Catastrophe

As the Fort Worth Police investigated the murder of 24-year-old Hurst, Texas resident Paula Jean Puckett Davenport, evidence and leads ran out fast. But it didn’t mean they were short of a suspect. In fact, the cops were almost certain they knew exactly who killed Paula in the parking lot of the Brunswick Bowlerland. Everything led back to her physically and psychologically abusive ex-husband. He had motive and his shaky alibi left plenty of opportunity. The man was without a doubt capable, police believed. When a witness to the murder emerged, Detective Claude Davis thought he was zeroing in, and that he’d give the Puckett Family justice. However, the witness was a minor – and her parents refused to let her be involved. Part 2 of 2.We’d like to extend a special thanks to Sara and Eddy Puckett for their contributions to this episode.

The Murder of Paula Davenport Part 1: Cold Blooded

On April 25th, 1978, 24-year-old Hurst, Texas resident Paula Jean Puckett Davenport left home to go bowling with her company’s league. Though she made it to the parking lot, Paula never made it inside the Brunswick Bowlerland. And more troubling, she never made it back home that night. Paula’s parents reported her missing to authorities in Hurst, but a couple days later another jurisdiction, the Fort Worth Police, were called to the scene of a body discovered in a heavily wooded area in the city’s far east. The body belonged to Paula Puckett Davenport. She’d died from gunshot wounds. As a team of experienced detectives investigated, virtually every trail led to a dead end. Every trail, that is, except for one.We’d like to extend a special thanks to Sara and Eddy Puckett for their contributions to this episode.If you have any information about the murder of Paula Jean Puckett Davenport, please contact the Fort Worth Police Cold Case Unit at 817 392 4307.If you’re experiencing domestic abuse, please get help by calling the National Domestic Abuse Hotline at 800-799-SAFE, or 800-799-7233.

The Murder of Johnnye Janelle Henderson

In late August of 1971 11-year-old Johnnye Henderson should have been entering the sixth grade alongside her peers. One morning, however, her mother returned home from a short trip to the store to find Johnnye had vanished. The Odessa Police Juvenile Division didn’t seem too worried about the disappearance, since there were no signs of foul play and civilians who’d searched the large field behind her home said they hadn’t found her there. But when Major Crimes Detectives came on the case three days later, they found Johnnye’s body, which was in an advanced state of decomposition. Though a cause of death could not be determined, Johnnye Henderson’s death was clearly a homicide.If you have any information about the 1971 murder of 11-year-old Johnnye Janelle Henderson, please call Odessa Crime Stoppers at (432) 333-8477 or submit a tip at the Odessa Crime Stoppers website: https://www.333tips.org/unsolved-crimesYou can support Gone Cold – Texas True Crime and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast Find us at https://www.gonecold.comFollow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

Kimberly Norwood Part 3: Hope & Despair

As the search for Kimberly continued, more folks who craved the spotlight emerged. There was Dallas psychic extraordinaire John Catchings, whose “visions” resulted in nothing more than heartache and wasted time and resources. There were well-meaning folks who came to help, of course, like the Heidi Search Center and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Unfortunately their altruistic efforts also resorted in nothing new being found. One man who came to help – a man who was so inspired by Kimberly’s disappearance that he began researching the nationwide problem of missing children, he said, and began an organization of his own – put the family, Kimberly’s Mother Janice said, through hell.

Kimberly Norwood Part 2: Sightings, Letters, & Psychics

When The Shreveport Times released verbatim portions of troubling letters Kimberly Norwood had written months before her disappearance, it was the first time her parents, Bobby and Janice Norwood, had read them. It was another blow, they said, like the many they felt they’d been hit with at the hands of Harrison County Sheriff Bill Oldham. Out of desperation, the family brought in a Dallas psychic, but what she had to say, which included information that had been previously released in the local newspaper, led absolutely nowhere. But when Janice Norwood found out a neighbor had seen a motorcycle leaving the Caney Creek addition in Hallsville at the same time Kimberly is thought to have vanished, an employee of the family becomes a potential suspect.

Kimberly Norwood Part 1: In the Pines

In early May 1989, sixteen-year-old Michelle Lee Richardson vanished from East Texas, the city of Palestine specifically. Just weeks later, on May 20th, another East Texas girl turned up missing under similar circumstances. Kimberly Norwood was a twelve-year-old who loved life and, believe it or not, school. She was experiencing the normal throes of being a preteen, but Kimberly was a good kid who never got in trouble and had certainly never tried to run away. But when she came up missing near her home in the Caney Creek Addition of Hallsville, Texas, the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office were working the case as if she had left on her own. Kimberly took no clothes, however, and left all her money behind. The harder the Norwood’s fought for Sheriff Bill Oldham to allow outside help to come in, the harder he fought against them. All they wanted was their little girl back, and the lawman, as the Marshall News Messenger put it, seemed unmoved by the family’s plight.If you have any information about the disappearance of Kimberly Rachelle Norwood, please call the Harrison County Sheriff's Office at 903-935-4888.If you have any information about the disappearance of Michelle Lee Richardson, please contact the Anderson County Sheriff's Department at 903-729-6068.You can support Gone Cold – Texas True Crime and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us at https://www.gonecold.comFollow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

Caleb Diehl Part 2: The Burden He Bore

After 18-year-old Caleb Ray Diehl disappeared from Nocona, Texas, one person, and one person only, began an attempt to steer the missing person investigation in a particular way. Only, this individual – close family friend Ricky Dale Howard – was a terrible director whose statements and actions were far-fetched and downright bizarre. Though he tried to make Caleb’s family and law enforcement investigators believe Caleb Diehl had left of his own free will and didn’t necessarily want to be found, not a soul was buying it. Upon further investigation into this man, police uncovered a dark and depraved secret that had been the subject of whispers throughout Montague county and the surrounding areas for years. Part 2 of 2.If you have any information about Caleb Ray Diehl’s disappearance, call Montague County Crime Stoppers at (940) 894-2871, the Nocona Police Department at (940) 825-3281, or the Montague County District Attorney’s office at (940) 894-6211.You can support Gone Cold – Texas True Crime and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us at https://www.gonecold.comFollow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

Caleb Diehl Part 1: The Disappearance

On the outside, 18-year-old Caleb Ray Diehl was a normal teenager living a relatively normal teenage life. He was born and raised in a small town – Nocona, Texas – and extremely close to his family. After celebrating his 18th birthday party at his Mom’s house, Caleb prepared to make the hour and a half drive to his sister’s house in Bedford, where he was living while he finished high school. He never made it, and he’s not been seen since. When someone the Diehl family knew began making strange claims concerning Caleb’s disappearance, it was confusing. The man was close to them, and it was unimaginable he’d try to muddy the waters just to save Caleb’s mother worry. So, was it for a more nefarious purpose?

The Murder of Auvord Jones Part 2: Criminal Element

The people of Paris, Texas and Lamar County mourned the loss of hermit 79-year-old Auvord Bevans Braithwaite Jones, many in an…unconventional way. On February 1st – just a few days after Auvord’s body was found, tourists of the macabre descended upon his series of shacks on the outskirts of town, looking, likely, for his hidden fortune as if he were some kind of exiled leprechaun. “Keep out by order of Lamar Cty. Sheriff” signs be damned. Newspaper man Bill Jackson wrote a “tribute” to Auvord in which he proceeded to condescend to the newly deceased man, though, perhaps, unintentionally. But while the city of Paris kind of lost its mind or way, County Attorney Jim Thompson and Sheriff Lonnie Player were hitting the case hard but without evidence, they were forced to round up the usual suspects and try to get one to sing. Part 2 of 2.If you have any information about the 1963 murder of the Auvord Jones, please contact the Paris Texas Police Department at (903) 784-6688.You can support Gone Cold – Texas True Crime and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us at https://www.gonecold.comFollow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

In the Blood

He had an alibi. He didn't have a violent history. And it seemed almost impossible to imagine the crime could have been committed by just one man. But Ronald Trimboli's DNA test, performed in the infancy of DNA testing, in the 1980s, was a match. Is it possible he was innocent of the triple murder he was convicted of? IN THE BLOOD presents all the evidence, including evidence jurors were not privy to, and asks you, the audience, for your verdict. The crime took place in Texas in 1985, but it echoed across decades, through multiple trials, a DNA re-test, and the discovery of new evidence, now.Hosted by Ben McKenzie (Southland, Gotham).

The Murder of Auvord Jones Part 1: The Paris Hermit

On January 24th, 1963, A. Jones, as the townsfolk of Paris, Texas knew him, picked up a couple things at the grocery store. Then, he stopped by the drugstore on his way home. Auvord, his actual name, lived on the northeast outskirts of town. Though he could be seen around town plenty, and was a friendly, intelligent, and gracious man to speak with, he was as much a stranger as he was a local. That night, something happened to 79-year-old Auvord Jones at the primitive shack he slept in. At some point, he was bludgeoned in the head and left for dead in the unusually cold winter snap that’d come through. While there is no actual proof that the man had a secret stash of money in a shack on the property he owned, there was plenty of talk of a hidden fortune there. Other facts contradict that notion, but police still believe that Auvord was murdered for that reason. His violent demise angered the community, stumped police, and began a mystery that remains unresolved to this day.

The Disappearance of Sharon Ware Davis

In June of 2001, 51-year-old Sharon Ware Davis dropped off her daughter at a bus stop near the Red Bird Neighborhood of Dallas, Texas. They exchanged “I love yous,” and Sharon went on her way. She was supposed to get ready for a training class for her job, which was an elementary school teacher. She never made it. In fact, Sharon hasn’t been seen since. Her husband Ron Davis avoided speaking with police for weeks after lawyering up within several days of Sharon’s disappearance. Family and friends say the man was abusive toward Sharon, who filed divorce from him just two days before she went missing. Her husband’s behavior, and controversy surrounding nearly everything he touches, never stopped.

The Murder of Cheryl Callaway Part 3: No Closer…

After the initial investigators working the murder of 18-year-old Cheryl Ann Callaway moved on, and the case had long gone cold, the voluminous file fell on the lap of Arlington, Texas Police Sgt. Dennis Rhoten. Rhoten hit the ground running, but eventually, like Sgt. Mike Adair and Detective Mike Leyman before him, began grasping at straws. In 1981, he looked at recently arrested serial killer Ted Bundy. Then, in 1983, Sgt. Rhoten, like the rest of Texas law enforcement, caught Henry Lee Lucas fever. None of those things panned out. Could Cheryl’s killer have been right under their noses the entire time? Part 3 of 3.Special thanks to Steve Harris and former Arlington detectives Mike Leyman and Sgt.

The Murder of Cheryl Callaway Part 2: Grasping at Straws

As Arlington Police Crimes Against Persons Detectives Mike Leyman and Sgt. Mike Adair continued to investigate the January 30th, 1974, murder of 18-year-old Cheryl Ann Callaway, answers seemed to get more and more elusive. Interviews with friends, family, and coworkers provided virtually no potential motive. An exhaustive search of VIN numbers of cars matching the suspect vehicle provided by witnesses led nowhere. Then, Sgt. Adair said, began the “grasping at straws” period of the investigation. Part 2 of 3.Special thanks to former Arlington detectives Mike Leyman and Sgt.

The Murder of Cheryl Callaway Part 1: Big City Crime

One detective called the slaying of Cheryl Ann Callaway “the most vicious murder in Arlington’s history.” Arlington Police Crimes Against Person Unit Detectives Sgt. Mike Adair and Mike Leyman call it the one that got away. On January 30th, 1974, just months before she was to be married, 18-year-old Cheryl’s life was taken. The murder was brutal and unimaginable, and the killer, it seemed, came out of nowhere…and struck out of a motivation that remains unclear 50 years later. No one who knew Cheryl could imagine who would have a reason to kill the young women; she had no enemies. Arlington Police Detectives Sgt. Adair and Leyman, who still think about the only crime they couldn’t solve together, hit the ground running. Evidence lacked at the scene of the crime, and Leyman and Adair knew at the get-go they were up against a tough case. Part 1 of 2.Special thanks to former Arlington detectives Mike Leyman and Sgt.

The Slayings of Don & Boston Tate at Big Bend

In July of 1991 26-year-old Don Tate took his 5-year-old daughter Boston on a camping trip to Big Bend National Park in Brewster County, Texas. The day after they were supposed to have returned but had not, Boston’s mother and Don’s ex-wife asked Rangers at the park to issue a request to locate. Don and Boston never came out of Big Bend, not alive. Later that day, Don’s brutalized body was found. A few days after that, Boston’s burned remains were discovered in her father’s van. Investigators scrounged to find evidence and a motive, while park visitors and villagers across the Rio Grande in Mexico spoke of the involvement of drug smugglers. Later that year, in December, a scandal in neighboring Presidio County involving the son of a prominent rancher and a drug warrior sheriff further fueled the talk of traffickers executing Boston and Don.If you have any information about the murders of Boston Michelle and Donald William Tate, please contact the National Park Service Tip Line at 888-653-0009 or submit a tip using their online form: nps.gov/orgs/1563/submit-a-tip.htmIf you’re in the market for Girl Scout Cookies, you can help Alice reach her goal by using the following link.

The Murder of Cheryl Springfield Part 2: The Criminal

After the Christmas Day 1980 murder of Cheryl Lynn Springfield, her unclothed strangled body found lying by the Christmas tree, Fort Worth Police Detectives quickly theorized her killer was someone she knew. Upon learning the criminal record of the boyfriend of Cheryl’s roommate Cindy, they set their sights on parolee Barry Dean Kelly. However, evidence was lacking, and Cheryl’s murder went cold. Seven years later, after he was released from prison a second time, Barry Dean Kelly would commit a series of crimes that showed he was absolutely capable of killing Cheryl Springfield. Ever since his convictions for 1987 crimes, he’s been at the top of the suspect list for Cheryl’s slaying in the eyes of several cold case detectives who’ve tried their hand at solving the case. But they always fell short of evidence to charge him and have never moved much past theories based on correlation. For 43 years now, Cheryl’s big sister Jan has called the Fort Worth Police monthly in an effort to keep the case alive.

The Murder of Cheryl Springfield Part 1: Christmas Morning

Scott and Cheryl Springfield married young, and although they were divorced by the time the 1980 Christmas season rolled around, he was having second thoughts about wanting his freedom. They’d always gotten along, even after the divorce, so things were patching up nicely. Cheryl decided it would be nice if her ex-husband and their boy, Scotty, spent Christmas Moring together, so both arranged the usual holiday plans to make that happen. Scott walked over on the morning of December 25th, 1980, arriving at about 6:15 AM to the cries of his little boy. After going inside, he discovered Cheryl laying by the Christmas tree. She’s been strangled to death with a cloth iron cord.

The Disappearance of Elisa Roberson Part 5: Undeterred

There are more than one viable possibilities as to what happened to 13-year-old Blanca Elisa Roberson when she disappeared on August 6th, 1989. Though the initial investigators had their primary suspect, and for good reason, Private Investigator Richard Norgard isn’t so sure. He’s uncovered information that suggests several different possibilities and even recently released new details in order to generate more tips. Whatever the case, tragedy continued within the Roberson family for years to come, undoubtedly inspired in virtually every case by Elisa’s disappearance.To keep up with the case, join the Missing Elisa Roberson Facebook page at: facebook.com/groups/739117898034158If you have any information about the disappearance of Blanca Elisa Roberson, please email [email protected] to Richard Norgard, Linda Thompson, Ruby Roberson Hall, and Marina Quintana Tomchak for their contributions to this episodeCheck out the new podcast Box in the Basement by Arlene and Leah at: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/269-box-in-the-basement-135173620/?cmp=web_share&embed=true&pname=fb&campid=s&keyid=8001869248&fbclid=IwAR00NpujF3mE_s_Ig6DCiSl3vSdyRuFo-kji-_xxH7sAg2IljCtQK8bGOHIDonate to Leon Laureles’s Birthday memorial by buying coats, blankets, and other winter necessities at: https://www.walmart.com/registry/er/ffee0156-26cb-4668-a75c-5288e5191ba1?fbclid=IwAR2FH8QZ8rR4bbIfzIRkZOa0QtVwEj2VofgQVu6RXU6RDRDqkwGCXAHyhS0You can support gone cold and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFollow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

The Disappearance of Elisa Roberson Part 4: Debacle

In 2016, Elisa Roberson’s case saw the most activity it had since 1989. First, Texas Equusearch came to Aransas Pass to search property once owned by original detectives’ prime suspect. But nothing was found. Then, police took a different approach and used ground penetrating radar and jackhammers, presumably, to break up concrete in the garage under the former Roberson home. Although it was reported in the press that nothing was found a few years later, one person – the prime suspect’s daughter – continued to perpetuate the rumor that Elisa’s body was found. Was it to protect her father, whether or not she knew something?To keep up with the case, join the Missing Elisa Roberson Facebook page at: facebook.com/groups/739117898034158If you have any information about the disappearance of Elisa Roberson, please contact [email protected], the address for the private investigationThanks to Debbie Green, Linda and Mike Thompson, Ruby Roberson Hall, and Marina Quintana Tomchak for their contributions to this episodeYou can support gone cold and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast Follow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

The Disappearance of Elisa Roberson Part 3: Fallibilities

When 13-year-old Elisa Roberson went missing in August of 1989, an incorrect detail was assigned to the narrative, and it continued to be reported for decades: the time in which Elisa’s disappearance occurred. Through the dozens of years since Elisa’s missing persons case began, leads were few, and far in between. But some years, like 1994, produced at least a dozen. None offered anything substantive. Something changed in 2016, and in this episode, we’ll discuss the seed that led to even more pain and suffering for the Roberson Family.To keep up with the case, join the Missing Elisa Roberson Facebook page at: facebook.com/groups/739117898034158In the cover photo: to the left is Ruby and to the right, ElisaIf you have any information about the disappearance of Blanca Elisa Roberson, please contact Tri-County Crime Stoppers at (800) 245-8477 or submit a tip online at TCCS Online Tip Form: p3tips.com/tipform.aspx?ID=437Thanks to Debbie Green, Holly Hall, Linda and Mike Thompson, Ruby Roberson Hall, and Marina Quintana Tomchak for their contributions to this episodeYou can support gone cold and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFollow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

On the late afternoon of August 6th, 1989, 13-year-old Blanca Elisa Roberson, known to most by her middle name, left her home in Aransas Pass and headed to meet a friend halfway between their houses. But Elisa never showed up. Searches for Elisa by friends of the family turned up nothing. Not a clue where Elisa might have gone could be found. After the sun went down, a police report was called in but the responding officer did little more than assure the family that Elisa was probably just with friends and would return soon.

Haunted: The Murder of Sylvia Salinas

On Halloween, 1989, 30-year-old Sylvia Salinas, owner of Salinas Food Store in Galveston, Texas, stayed behind to stock the shelves while her folks returned home for lunch. At 1:23 PM, police were informed by the company who handles the alarm service for the small grocery, that the silent alarm had been tripped. When a patrolman arrived at the scene, he found Sylvia in a pool of blood, stabbed through the heart with a large knife. Virtually no leads could be produced, and the case went cold almost immediately. Decades later, as forensic DNA science advanced to a point that gave the family hope, a natural disaster dashed those hopes - or did it?

Service industry workers themselves, they knew folks at The Keg, and those folks saw Regina and David leave around 11 PM. It was the last time they were seen alive. The following afternoon, David Larson’s roommate discovered his nude and badly bludgeoned body in their apartment just southwest of downtown Fort Worth. Minutes later, a discovery was made in northwest Fort Worth. On the bank of a river under a bridge, covered with illegally dumped furniture, was the body of Regina Grover. She’d been strangled to death. Police lumped Regina’s murder in with several others that would eventually become known to locals as “The 80s Murders,” and David’s murder, which separated the case from the others in a major way, was often left out. Detectives never got a break on Regina and David’s case, but decades later, when a 1974 murder was solved, similarities never before noticed became hard to ignore.If you have any information about the murders of David Dale Larson and Regina Suzanne Grover, please contact the Fort Worth Police Cold Case Unit at (817)392-4307, or you can provide information by emailing [email protected] you’d like to help fund testing that can solve cold cases in Fort Worth, go to fwpdcoldcasesupport.org and donateYou can support gone cold – texas true crime at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter or X or whatever, Threads, and Instagram by searching @gonecoldpodcastFind us on TikTok and YouTube, where we’ve finally released content and plan to continue producing more.

The Broad Daylight Murder of Valerie McPherson

In 2013, 24-year-old Lauren Bump was brutally killed while jogging through San Antonio’s O.P. Schnabel Park, on the city’s northwest side, generally a safe, middle-class area and during the day. The stabbing murder was completely random; it was the act of a sociopath who simply wanted to cause pain and kill. Luckily, he was apprehended and eventually convicted of Lauren’s murder. The terrible crime was markedly similar to one that occurred 25 years before, in 1991. In August of that year, 32-year-old Valerie McPherson was jogging near her Olmos Park, Texas home in the San Antonio area during broad daylight, when she was savagely attacked by someone she didn’t know – stabbed repeatedly as she shielded her 19-month-old girl in the child’s running stroller. Val was able to describe her attacker but succumbed to her wounds four hours later at an area hospital. While it was impossible that the same man who killed Lauren Bump in 2013 was also responsible for Val McPherson’s murder, since he would have only been 4 years old in 1991, could the cases have had the same motive? Or, rather, the lack of motive?If you have any information about the murder of Valerie Lorane McPherson, please contact the Texas Rangers at (800) 346-3243 or remain anonymous and eligible for a reward of up to $3000 by calling Texas Crime Stoppers at (800)252-8477You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter or X or whatever, Threads, and Instagram by searching @gonecoldpodcastFind us on TikTok and YouTube, where we’ve finally released content and plan to continue producing more.

The Abduction & Murder of Raul Arevalo

But he never returned. For six days, Raul’s family searched for him, as did Texas Highway Patrol and the Sutton County Sheriff’s Office. On March 1st, 1953, six days after he disappeared, a young married couple found the body of Raul Arevalo. He’d been tortured and shot to death.

Debra Mackey Part 2: The Criminal Pathologist

Part 2 of 2. Years after pathologist Dr. Ralph Erdmann was discredited – found to have falsified countless autopsies all over West Texas and the Panhandle, Plainview Jane Doe was buried after her remains had been shuffled around for 11 years. Her grave was marked, simply, “Jane Doe 1982.” When she was exhumed in 2015, however, the mystery began unraveling. And the truth was nothing like anyone thought. The unidentified murder victim, originally determined to have been white by Dr. Erdmann was actually black. It wasn’t the only misstep that made prior identification virtually impossible. The skull buried with the body did not belong to it. Eventually, the body was identified as belonging to 20-year-old Debra Mackey of Lubbock. Who killed her, however, remains unknown.If you have any information on the murder of Debra Denise Mackey, please contact the Lubbock Police Department Crime Line at (806)741-1000 or reach out to Metropolitan Special Crimes Unit Detective Madrigal at (806)775-3072You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter or X or whatever, Threads, and Instagram by searching @gonecoldpodcastFind us on TikTok and YouTube, where we’ve finally released content and plan to continue producing more.

Debra Mackey Part 1: Plainview Jane Doe

When the partially frozen, headless body of a woman was found off a deserted road in rural Hale County just outside of Plainview in 1982, the case was cold from the start. Months later, when a skull was found in Maricopa County, Arizona, it was sent to Texas and determined to belong to the headless woman by pathologist Ralph Erdmann. When Henry Lee Lucas was arrested the following year, he confessed to decapitating the victim, among other vile acts, but charges were dropped against him in return for a guilty plea to another crime in the jurisdiction of the Hale County District Attorney’s Office. Very few possibilities arose as to the identity of Plainview’s Jane Doe, but given mistakes made by the pathologist in charge of the body, at least one very good possibility was never even considered: missing 20-year-old Debra Mackey of Lubbock, who was last seen a little more than a month before.

The Disappearance of Jared Chavis Part 2

If there’s one thing that’s certain about the missing person’s case of Jared Wayne Chavis, it’s that absolutely nothing is. As if dealing with conflicting stories from the friends who were with Jared that cold January night in 2018, the missing young man’s family also feels that at the get-go, the Houston Police were less than enthusiastic about investigating. Add to that their failure to procure certain seemingly important evidence and it’s no wonder Jared’s family – including his little boy – still have no answers five years later. Part 2 of 2. If you have any information about the disappearance of Jared Chavis, please contact the Houston Police Department at 832-394-1840.

The Disappearance of Jared Chavis Part 1

Jared Wayne Chavis went missing January 12, 2018, in Houston, TX. His family fears that something tragic has happened to Jared due to the circumstances surrounding his disappearance. Witnesses report that Jared was in the back seat of a black Ford Fusion when an argument broke out and shots were fired by a young man in the front of the car. Jared's friend was able to run out, but Jared never exited the vehicle, and he has never been seen again. His car was later found unlocked and the seat covers had been removed. His family fears that Jared was killed that day. They continue to search for answers and justice. Jared was an old soul; he was generous, independent, ambitious, and strong-willed. At just 19 years old, he had big plans for establishing a career and a family - and he was headed down that path. Jared has a 9-month-old son, Ameer, who was born after Jared's disappearance, so unfortunately Jared never had a chance to meet his own son and Ameer will grow up without his father in his life. Ameer is a driving force for the family to keep pushing for answers, to keep fighting to find out what happened to Jared.If you have any information about the disappearance of Jared Chavis, please contact the Houston Police Department at 832-394-1840.

The Slaying of Debra Sue Reiding

When Debra Wilt married Robert Reiding in November of 1978, they immediately moved to Austin, Texas from Choteau, Montana to escape the brutal Winter. Robert had a relative that could give him work, and although it left much to be desired money wise, Debra found work at a restaurant near their apartment. But just shy of two months into settling in the Texas Capitol City, the newlywed 18-year-old was slain in the couple’s home. But it wasn’t a homicide the cops in Austin were accustomed to. It was, however, one they’d at least become somewhat familiar with over the course of the 1970s as the city underwent a major growth spurt – something Austin Police Homicide Lt. Nolan Meinardus called, “faceless crime.” Debra’s case went cold fast, and when it heated up decades later, it appeared the warm and friendly young woman might finally see justice.If you have any information about the murder of Debra Sue Wilt Reiding in January of 1979, please call the Austin Police homicide tip line at (512) 477-3588, the Homicide Unit at (512) 974-5210, or Capital Area Crime Stoppers at (512) 472-8477Please consider donating to the go fund me for Leon Laureles.

The Murders of Phyllis Butto & Martha Read

In February 1975, Austin was rocked with a savage and senseless crime that disturbed even the most experienced homicide detectives when 21-year-old Phyllis Butto was stabbed to death in her home. The murder baffled police. The following June, when a markedly similar crime took place, Austin Homicide Investigators scrambled to find clues. 25-year-old Martha Read was also riddled with stab wounds. Though a couple promising leads came their way, the cops couldn’t find anything that made sense or stuck. Law enforcement in Texas’s Capital City, anyway, was facing a new challenge that worsened as Austin grew: something they called “faceless crime.”If you have any information about the 1975 murders of Phyllis Butto or Martha Read, please call the Austin Police homicide tip line at (512) 477-3588, the Homicide Unit at (512) 974-5210, or Capital Area Crime Stoppers at (512) 472-8477Please consider donating to the go fund me for Leon Laureles.

Shallow Grave: The Slaying of Helen Dawn Williams

In October 1993, Thurgood Marshall School of Law student Dawn Williams vanished without so much as a trace. Fellow students, friends, and family searched everywhere but no clues were found. Houston Police, too, failed to find anything at all. The following month, a crew cleaning trash from an area in rural Montgomery County found the 25-year-old women’s body buried in a shallow grave, partially unearthed by animals. Police, and especially Dawn’s father, had a good idea what happened to her and who did it, but evidence has eluded investigators for 30 years.

Amber Hagerman Part 6: More Bad Men

In 1999, another abduction rocked North Texas when 6-year-old Opal Jo Jennings was snatched in broad daylight as she played with other children in a field next to her house. The similarities were striking, and police in Arlington thought they had their man. In 2007, in Tacoma Washington, a twisted child rapist was exposed when he murdered one of his victims, and his ties to Fort Worth, Texas put him on the persons of interest list in the Amber Hagerman case. The following year, police in Dickinson, Texas renew an investigation from 1990 in which the victim, left for dead, survived. In 2009, her would-be killer was identified and arrested. It’s unclear if this suspect was ever investigated for the 1996 murder of 9-year-old Amber Rene Hagerman, or if the survivor’s case was even compared at all.

Whether a perpetrator was known, like a Fort Lauderdale, Florida child rapist and killer or was yet to be apprehended, such as the monster responsible for raping and killing a 12-year-old girl in a Houston suburb, there was certainly no shortage of suspects to scrutinize. Even an obsessive tipster came on the Taskforce’s radar. But police investigating the January 13th abduction and subsequent murder of 9-year-old Amber Hagerman couldn’t catch a break that led to an arrest, or enough proof that actually made them believe they’d identified their guy. At least in the three cases discussed in this episode.If you have any information about the abduction and murder of Amber Rene Hagerman, please call the Arlington Police at (817)459-5772.

Amber Hagerman Part 4: The Investigation

As the Amber Hagerman Taskforce investigated, they were attempting to leave no stone unturned. Privy to resources not usually readily available to local police jurisdictions, Detectives were utilizing science, mathematics, and old-fashioned police work in order to cover every base. It was, perhaps, the toughest investigation many of the very experienced policemen had ever worked. And it was personal. Nothing, however, seemed to pan out. Even with the identification of countless suspects, finding the evidence that nailed one of them was proving frustrating. What were they missing?If you have any information about the abduction and murder of Amber Hagerman, please call the Arlington Police at (817)459-5772 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward, please call Tarrant County Crime Stoppers at (817)469-8477Check out the always brilliant podcast Another Shade of Crime here: spreaker.com/show/another-shade-of-crime_1Please consider donating to the go fund me for Leon Laureles.

Amber Hagerman Part 3: Found

On the evening of Wednesday, January 17th, 1996, a cold front in North Texas brought in a major thunderstorm system. Arlington, Texas got drenched. At about 11:30 PM, when the rain stopped, a Forest Ridge Apartments resident took his small terrier out for a walk. When the dog became agitated at the creek near the complex, the man walked down to check it out. To his horror, a small, female body was in the water facedown. He knew who it was. The next couple days, the Arlington Police and the Amber Hagerman Taskforce scrambled to find out how the body got there and who might be responsible.

Amber Hagerman Part 2: The Search

At about 3:18 PM on January 13th, 1996, in east Arlington, Texas, 78-year-old retired machinist and WW2 Veteran Jimmie Kevil dialed 911. He’d just witnessed a man in a pickup truck kidnap a little girl, he told the operator. The girl was 9-year-old Amber Hagerman. Police responded and a search began. Folks in the neighborhood, too, came out to look for her and the black truck her abductor drove. But there was a problem: this was Texas and black pickups were everywhere. Everyone in Arlington was hanging on to the hope that Amber would be returned unharmed, unlike the victim in the last kidnapping case in the city, the 1994 abduction of 16-year-old Lisa Rene.If you have any information about the abduction and murder of Amber Rene Hagerman, please call the Arlington Police at (817)459-5772.

Amber Hagerman Part 1: The Abduction

When Amber Hagerman was born, her parents’ relationship was still relatively new. In spite of the many challenges her mom Donna faced, particularly after becoming a single mother, Amber and her brother Ricky were happy with strong emotional stability and love in their lives. By the time Donna was ready to give the kids’ father a chance to continue to be in their lives, she’d agreed to take part in a local television news docuseries about the struggles of being a single mom. After filming wrapped, and 100s of hours of footage had been shot, it was nearly 1996 and Amber was 9 years old. Everything was looking up for the family in this new year until the unthinkable happened.

Amber Hagerman Prologue: The Amber Plan

Within a year of the abduction and murder of 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, several vastly differing factors came together to create the Amber Plan, known today as the Amber Alert. From the idea of a concerned parent who mourned for Amber’s relatives to Amber’s family, and then from an association of radio managers to state and local authorities, the little girl’s long-lasting legacy came to fruition and subsequently saved many lives. Though the Amber Plan went off without a hitch in many regards, it got off to a rocky start in others. Considering both the good and bad, perhaps, and even when the rules were bent or broken, helped lead to the program's great successes. This is the story of the Amber Plan, the Amber Alert.If you have any information about the abduction and murder of Amber Hagerman, please call the Arlington Police at (817)459-5772 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward, please call Tarrant County Crime Stoppers at (817)469-8477Please consider donating to the go fund me for Leon Laureles.

As the search for 8-year-old Kim Nguyen continued a week after his disappearance, the Garland Police still coordinated the efforts but had begun concentrating on the investigation. After releasing a lead that likely would have borne better results had it been released the day Kim went missing, the very day the information was made public in fact, the unthinkable happened.

The Kidnapping & Killing of Kim Nguyen Part 1: Without a Trace

On July 18th, 1993, 8-year-old Kim Nguyen woke up in a good, particularly playful mood. After wrestling around with his older brother some, Kim entered the living room of the Nguyen Family home in Garland, Texas and flipped on the television. When his father came to check on him at about 7 AM, however, there was no trace of the little boy, not inside the house or outside. They called the police and informed them that Kim was gone and that there was a detail that might make finding him more difficult than a lot of children. Kim was autistic and chose not to verbally communicate the vast majority of the time. Word got around the boy’s working-class neighborhood fast, and lots of folks showed up to help search. But after the first several days, no sign of the boy could be found. Almost no sign.If you have any information about the 1993 kidnapping and murder of 8-year-old Kim Nguyen, please call the Garland Police at (972) 485-4840Please consider donating to the go fund me for Leon Laureles.

The Abduction & Murder of Ashley Estell Part 3: Ashley’s Laws

The 1994 trial of Michael Nawee Blair for the abduction and murder of 7-year-old Ashley Nicole Estell was fought hard by both sides. Though the prosecution came out victorious and justice seemed to have been served upon Blair’s conviction, it was stripped away years later, when the decision was overturned. Is Michael Blair truly innocent and one of the other two strong suspects responsible for the heinous and unforgivable act? Or, did Blair get away with Ashley’s slaying? Even though justice has yet to be realized, Ashley’s legacy had undoubtedly lived on and helped other prevent pother children from falling victim to depraved people who would hurt them.

While the Plano Police investigated the abduction and death of 7-year-old Ashley Estell, a strange man with a pertinent criminal history made himself a suspect. Unbeknownst to the grieving and angry residents of the suburb city, along with the rest of North Texas, the cops were building a case against 23-year-old Dallas carpet cleaner and convicted child molester Michael Nawee Blair. When the arrest came 6 days after Ashley was slain, residents were shocked – but upon learning of the man’s disturbing criminal past and his early release from prison, the public’s shock turned to outrage and a campaign against the practices of the Texas justice system got underway.

The Abduction & Murder of Ashley Estell Part 1: Stranger Danger

The abduction and murder of 7-year-old Ashley Nicole Estell sent shockwaves through Plano, Texas, a Dallas suburban outlier. Crime in the community in 1993 was extremely rare, particularly crime of such violence against a child as the one against Ashley. It changed everything in Plano, and the shockwaves were felt throughout the North Texas Region if not the entire state. The investigation, at first, was going nowhere and the public feared for the safety of their children. Part 1 of 2.

The Murder of Brittany McGlone Part 3: No Bill

As Wood County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Captain Mike Chilson continued looking at the 2007 murder of 19-year-old Brittany McGlone, evidence against the prime suspect was stacking up to the point where an arrest seemed imminent. Chilson discovered physical evidence that was hard to ignore and reinterviewed witnesses who’d had some fairly damning recollections of the suspect on that terrible day. By the end of August 2022, Captain Chilson felt he had enough to make an arrest. And so did a Wood County judge. The suspect was found and arrested in Dallas. But 89 days after that arrest, a grand jury decided, seemingly with a nudge from the Wood County DA, that there was not enough evidence. The three-time convicted and violent felon was set free and justice for Brittany McGlone was once again in limbo. To this day, the district attorney has offered no explanation or even placation to Brittany’s family.

The Murder of Brittany McGlone Part 1: The World Stopped

In Wood County, Texas on May 4th, 2007, Brittany McGlone was murdered, seemingly as she slept, in her boyfriend’s home while everyone who lived in the house was away. Nothing else in the home was disturbed and there were no signs of forced entry. Alibis for everyone who lived in the house were checked out and verified, apparently, but whoever violently bludgeoned Brittany to death most likely had knowledge of the home and the habits of the folks therein. Nineteen-year-old Brittany's killing has devastated her family who struggle to pick up the pieces and who, on top of their uncertainty and grief, were forced to deal with a combative Sheriff’s Office for more than a decade.If you have any information about the murder of Brittany Danielle McGlone, please contact the Wood County Sheriff’s Office at 903-763-2201 or to be eligible for a cash reward, call Wood County Crime stoppers at 903-763-2274, that’s 903-763-CASH.You can find out more about Brittany’s family’s fight for justice at: facebook.com/justiceforbrittanymcgloneTo show your support for Fort Worth cold case victims and their families, please consider joining Thaw the Cold Cases on April 29th, 2023 in the city’s downtown.

The Slaying of Susan Leigh Wolfe

On Wednesday, January 9th, 1980, in the North Loop neighborhood of Austin, a man witnessed a young woman’s abduction. The following day, the body of that woman, 25-year-old University of Texas student Susan Leigh Wolfe, was found slain in an alley more than 4 miles away. Because the witness to the abduction was in the auto business, he was able to give Austin Police Detectives what might have been the best vehicle description the department had ever seen. But it didn’t matter; though the car had been seen by folks in the neighborhood before, as well as elsewhere in town, it was apparently never seen again. Susan Wolfe’s murder case went cold. When Austin Police pinned a few of their murders on Henry Lee Lucas and Ottis Elwood Toole, murders they could not have committed, the witness in Susan’s case had made it virtually impossible to pin her murder on them, luckily. But unfortunately, her case faded into obscurity as the years and decades passed.If you have any information about the murder of Susan Leigh Wolfe, 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)472-8477To show your support for Fort Worth cold case victims and their families, please consider joining Thaw the Cold Cases on April 29th, 2023 in the city’s downtown.

The Killing of Connie Jane Bibb

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)472-8477Please consider donating to the go fund me for Leon Laureles.

The Murder of Father Patrick Ryan Part 3: Railroaded

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.

The Murder of Father Patrick Ryan Part 2: Grave Danger

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.If you have any information about the 1981 murder of Father Patrick Joseph Ryan, please call the Odessa Police Department at (432)335-496 or Odessa Crime Stoppers at (432)333-8477Please consider donating to the go fund me for Leon Laureles.

The Murder of Father Patrick Ryan Part 1: Room 126

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.If you have any information about the 1981 murder of Father Patrick Joseph Ryan, please call the Odessa Police Department at (432)335-496 or Odessa Crime Stoppers at (432)333-8477Please consider donating to the go fund me for Leon Laureles.

The Disappearance of Lina Sardar Khil Part 2

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.

The Disappearance of Lina Sardar Khil Part 1

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.

The Killings of Mary Morris Part 3: Mary Lou

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 episodeIf you have any information about the murder of Mary Lou Morris or Mary Teresa Morris, please contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at (713)274-9100 or Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS (8477)You can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast Find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastWe highly recommend listening to the following podcasts, which were used as sources for this episode: The Murder In My Family’s episode here: spreaker.com/user/11688200/mary-henderson-morris ...... and The Prosecutors Podcast’s Mary Morris episodes, beginning with part 1: prosecutorspodcast.com/2020/12/15/47-the-murders-of-mary-morris-double-visionOther sources for this episode are The Baytown Sun, The Houston Chronical, The Austin American-Statesman, and ABCnews.com #JusticeForMaryLouMorris #JusticeForMaryTeresaMorris #JusticeForMaryMorris #BaytownTX #SugarLandTX #Houston #HarrisCountyTX #TX #Texas #TexasTrueCrime #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #UnsolvedMysteries #UnsolvedMurder

The Killings of Mary Morris Part 2: Mary Teresa

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.

The Killings of Mary Morris Part 1

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.

The Savage & Forgotten Murder of Ora Lee Prescott

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] out our pal Theron Georges’ beautiful Aluminum, Space-Age Christmas Tree books at evergleambook.com You also need Theron’s YouTube videos in your holiday life, trust me, and you can find those and subscribe at youtube.com/@spaceagechristmastreesAlso, check out season 5 of our friend T.Z.’s podcast Tapes from the Darkside anywhere you listen to podcasts, or right here: tapesfromthedarkside.comYou can support gone cold – texas true crime at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcastThe Fort Worth Star-Telegram, The Mansfield News-Mirror, The Washington Post, The LA Times, and passive aggressively redacted police reports were used as sources for this episode.#JusticeForOraLeePrescott #JusticeForJuneWard #FortWorth #FortWorthTX #Texas #TX #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #ColdCase #Unsolved #Murder #UnsolvedMurder #FebruarySlayings #BathtubKiller

The Sensationalized Slaying of Joyce Stein Part 3

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?

The Sensationalized Slaying of Joyce Stein Part 1

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?

The Lake Worth Monster

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?

The Joplin & Trice Murders in Blue Mound, Texas Part 8: Deadlocked

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.If you have any information about the 1976 Joplin Family murders, please contact the Blue Mound Police at (817)232-0665Find gone cold – texas true crime on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastGrand Jury testimony, an anonymous individual once involved in the investigation, Tom Stephenson’s 2018 article in D Magazine titled “Reopening the Blue Mound Massacre,” and The Dallas Morning-News were used as sources for this episode#JusticeForTheJoplinFamily #JusticeForTerryTrice #BlueMound #BlueMoundTX #FortWorth #Texas #TX #TexasTrueCrime #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #ColdCase #Murder #UnsolvedMurder #Unsolved #FamilyAnnihilator

The Joplin & Trice Murders in Blue Mound, Texas Part 7: Johnny Cotton

After the grand jury wrapped up their investigation into the Joplin and Trice murders, unhappily at that, the media essentially turned their back on the story. More disturbingly, it seems the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office did the same. While most folks the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex over were paying attention to the new high profile murder case in town, residents of Blue Mound were stuck wondering if a murderer walked among them. In 2011, a new Blue Mound cop decided he’d like to get a shot at breaking the Joplin / Trice murder case. It was Deputy Police chief Barry Hinkle who, more than 3 decades after the horrific slayings, uncovered the most promising lead the case had ever known in the form of a guy known as “Johnny Cotton.” Part 7 of 8.If you have any information about the 1976 Joplin Family murders, please contact the Blue Mound Police at (817)232-0665Find gone cold – texas true crime on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastGrand Jury testimony, an anonymous individual once involved in the investigation, and The Fort Worth Star-Telegram were used as sources for this episode#JusticeForTheJoplinFamily #JusticeForTerryTrice #BlueMound #BlueMoundTX #FortWorth #Texas #TX #TexasTrueCrime #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #ColdCase #Murder #UnsolvedMurder #Unsolved #FamilyAnnihilator

The Joplin & Trice Murders in Blue Mound, Texas Part 6: “No. Hell no.”

The first two-thirds of Gregg Wayne Joplin’s testimony at the grand jury investigation into the murders of his entire family and friend Terry Trice were riddled with inconsistencies and, seemingly, impossibilities. The final hour or so was no different. After he was dismissed, Terry Trice’s close friend Valdemar Gomez Junior took the stand. It’s unclear if the teenager was nervous or simply could not recall details well, but his testimony, too, contradicted the testimony of others and even his own. In the end, grand jurors were unable to suggest an indictment or even provide many answers. The case, from that point on, was unofficially concluded.If you have any information about the 1976 Joplin Family murders, please contact the Blue Mound Police at (817)232-0665Find gone cold – texas true crime on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastGrand Jury testimony and The Fort Worth Star-Telegram were used as sources for this episode#JusticeForTheJoplinFamily #JusticeForTerryTrice #BlueMound #BlueMoundTX #FortWorth #Texas #TX #TexasTrueCrime #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #ColdCase #Murder #UnsolvedMurder #Unsolved #FamilyAnnihilator

The Joplin & Trice Murders in Blue Mound, Texas Part 5: Sole Survivor

As Gregg Joplin’s testimony about what happened on Monday, February 23rd, 1976 continued, the of murder case of the Joplin Family and Terry Trice seemed to grow even more complicated. The Grand Jury’s investigative efforts were certainly hindered, at the very least, by Gregg’s claimed lack of memory. Oddly, he remembered certain details quite well, but others – important details – not at all. Was Gregg’s lapse in memory a product of trauma or evasion? The Grand Jurors seemed to believe the latter.If you have any information about the 1976 Joplin Family murders, please contact the Blue Mound Police at (817)232-0665Find gone cold – texas true crime on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastGrand Jury testimony and The Fort Worth Star-Telegram were used as sources for this episode#JusticeForTheJoplinFamily #BlueMound #BlueMoundTX #FortWorth #Texas #TX #TexasTrueCrime #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #ColdCase #Murder #UnsolvedMurder #Unsolved #FamilyAnnihilator

The Joplin & Trice Murders in Blue Mound, Texas Part 4: Grand Jury

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram shocked the locals when on March 3rd, 1976, they ran an article in their evening edition announcing that a grand jury investigation into the Joplin Family and Terry Trice murders in Blue Mound. It came out of nowhere. But Tarrant County Sheriff Lon Evans had asked for it the previous week, and subpoenas had gone out since. Because of an unwarranted arrest, a portion of the grand jury witness testimony leaked, and several aspects of it provide, perhaps, reason to believe the case was never what it seemed.

The Joplin & Trice Murders in Blue Mound, Texas Part 3: Damage Control

After Fort Worth Star-Telegram newspaper reporters uncovered relatively solid evidence that 17-year-old Terry Trice did not kill Wayne, Fae, Brian, and Kevin Joplin, Tarrant County Sheriff Lon Evans became heavily involved in the investigation. In fact, it seemed as though he didn’t want anyone making any decisions or talking to any reports other than himself and his Chief Deputy Earl Brown. Damage control began. As the Sheriff and his right hand man sorted through mistakes made by both the Blue Mound Police Chief and his own deputies, Lon Evans became frustrated at the lack of cooperation from the sole surviving Joplin family member.

The Joplin Family Murders in Blue Mound, Texas Part 2: Terry Trice

After the murders of Wayne, Fae, Brian, and Kevin Joplin on February 23rd, 1976, both Blue Mound Police Chief Gary Erwin and Tarrant County Deputies who assisted at the scene thought the case was open and shut: a family friend, 17 year old Terry Trice, killed them all and was trying to make out with two vintage firearms when he was surprised, shot, and killed by Gregg Joplin after he came home. Within two days, however, as reporters for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and D Magazine uncovered facts about Terry Trice that authorities had not, it seemed almost certain he hadn’t committed any crime at all.

The Joplin Family Murders in Blue Mound, Texas Part 1

Blue Mound, Texas in 1976 was a quaint and quiet working class family town, it’s low violent crime rate in stark contrast to the city directly to the south, Fort Worth. In February of 1976, however, Blue Mound forever changed when five people were slaughtered in a suburban home there. The sole surviving member of the Joplin Family, 20-year-old Gregg, told police that after visiting a relative, he came home to find his family slain, and shot and killed the alleged intruder. On the surface, that story seemed to work. But as the investigation progressed, witnesses and evidence painted a much different story.

The Slaying of Mary Moore Searight Part 2

Part 2 of 2. After moving back to her hometown of Paris, Texas at age 80, Mary Searight quickly became a beloved resident. Mary shot straight, had seemingly endless tales to tell, and always took care of the places she lived through philanthropic gestures. But 8 years after coming back home, when she was 87 years old, someone brutally raped and beat Mary Searight to death in her home. The investigation, though diligently worked, was getting nowhere. When elderly couple Bessie and Grady Alexander were slain just two weeks after Mary’s murder, the Paris Police theorized a possible connection. But when evidence revealed the killer of the Alexander’s through DNA, testing on Mary Searight’s case stalled.If you have any information about the 1996 murder of Mary Moore Searight, please call the Paris, Texas Police Department at (903)784-6688Please donate to help get #JusticeForLeonLaureles at gofundme.com/f/leon-laureles-private-detective-and-memorial/Find gone cold – texas true crime on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastCommunityImpact.com, The Paris News, The Austin American-Statesman, The Houston Post, The Fort Worth Record, LamarCounty.org, MooreFirm.com, Moore & Searight Family Records, and Court Appeal Documents were used as sources for this episode#JusticeForMaryMooreSearight #Paris #ParisTX #Austin #AustinTX #Texas #TX #Texas #TexasTrueCrime #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #ColdCase #Murder #UnsolvedMurder #Unsolved

The Mysterious & Forgotten Disappearance of Kathy Goad

On November 11th, 1982, 20-year-old Kathy Mae Goad took the day off work to run some errands in the Fort Worth, Texas suburb of Hurst. She never made it back to the east Fort Worth home she shared with her husband, who reported her missing that evening. The Fort Worth Police believed that Kathy had simply left her husband and more or less refused to investigate the case. But authorities in her Kentucky hometown felt very differently. They sent one of their best detectives to Texas to investigate. In the first two days of Commonwealth of Kentucky Attorney’s Detective Glen Wood’s visit, he uncovered information that strongly pointed to a suspect in Kathy Goad’s disappearance. Twelve years after Kathy went missing, a mysterious letter sent to FWPD attempted to connect her case with one of the city’s most talked about mysteries – the Fort Worth Missing Trio. Still, the 20-year-old has never been found and no one has ever been held accountable for whatever happened to her.

Introducing The Fall Line

This is an excerpt from The Fall Line Podcast’s episode on the unsolved disappearance of Carlos Ariel Delgado Mancha. Carlos Delgado disappeared in 1997, but there’s no formal record of this fact—at least, not one his family can access. Although ICE allegedly holds that information in their internal records, there is no listing for Carlos, who was in the US on a temporary residency visa, with NamUs or any other state or county agency. And that has made tracking him, and publicizing his case, extraordinarily difficult. Add in the circumstances of Carlos’’ life, and his place among the “missing missing,” and his son Hugo and niece Sheila have had a hard road toward seeking help in publicizing his case.

Justice For Katie Palmer Part 1

On an April 2020 morning in a country neighborhood of Denison, Texas, Katie and John Palmer set out for a walk and to hopefully spot some killdeer birds nesting down the street. When they headed back home on Glenwood Drive, walking on the left side of the road where they would face traffic should there be any, the couple was struck from behind without warning. John Palmer survived his injuries, but his wife Katie was pronounced dead at a Plano Hospital trauma center many hours later. There was much to be desired concerning the Texas Department of Public Safety’s “investigation” at the scene. Months later, a grand jury declined to indict the man who hit Katie and John Palmer, killing her. But a trooper at the scene recommended the man’s arrest and charges in his report, citing criminal negligence. To this day, John Palmer continues to fight for justice for Katie.

The Murder of Trellis “Tree” Sykes in Sunnyside

Sunnyside, Houston, Texas was once a community of hope and prosperity. But by the 1990s, the community was riddled with dilapidated buildings and infrastructure, poverty, and crime. Track champion, basketball all-star, and honor student Trellis “Tree” Sykes was a light in the community. Everyone in Sunnyside was proud to have her as a local. In 1994, however, someone who can only be described as a monster accosted Tree and violently ended her incredibly special and promising life. Years later, when a neighborhood rapist was identified after the city of Houston finally prioritized ending their backlog of rape kits, the cops were sure the man was responsible for Tree’s slaying. Though the case remains unsolved to this day, Houston Homicide Division Cold Case Detective Darcus Shorten recently reopened the case.If you have any information about the murder of Trellis Tree Sykes, please contact the Houston Police Department Homicide Division’s Cold Case Squad at (713)308-3618If you are a survivor of sexual violence and need confidential help, please call the national sexual assault hotline at (800)656-HELP or (800)656-4673.

The Senseless Slaying of Jennifer Sue Delgado

San Antonio, Texas is known for the Alamo and the River Walk, among other things. Though the city is certainly set apart from other comparable Texas cities by the amazing culture and the interesting history, San Antonio’s violent crime rate isn’t any different. In 1988, as gang violence began to escalate, so did other terrible crimes involving juveniles, many in San Antonio’s west and southwest sides. Perhaps the most senseless and baffling homicide in the city that year, and possibly for many years before and after, was the random killing of 8-year-old Jennifer Delgado. The lack of motive and the fact that Jennifer did not know the man who murdered her at all rendered the case cold from the get-go.Special thanks to Christopher Palmer for his help with this episode.

The Murder of Carol Lee Preslar

In 1988, 27-year-old Carol Lee Preslar was enrolled at the University of Texas, working nights at Feather’s Lounge, and having fun with friends. She’d been back in Fort Worth for about 5 years after spending several with her sister in Utah. Carol had a lot going for her: a personality that drew folks in and hooked them, a successful boyfriend, and even a little dog named Georgie. But shortly after returning home following work and a little partying with friends, Carol was held in her apartment, tortured, and murdered. Details of the crime suggest Carol knew her killer, who also sought to demean her, but the cops couldn’t zero in on a motive, much less a viable suspect in the initial investigation. Though progress was made a decade later, and another decade after that, the case remains unsolved. Currently, Carol Lee Preslar’s murder case is being actively investigated by Fort Worth Police Cold Case detectives. If you have any information about the horrific murder of Carol Lee Preslar in June of 1988, please contact the Fort Worth Cold Case Unit at (817)392-4307. You can also report information anonymously to Tarrant County Crime Stoppers at (817)469-8477.Special thanks to Susie, Jodi, and Detective Leah Wagner for their invaluable contributions to this episode.Consider joining Laurah from The Fall Line, Sarah from Voices for Justice, Arlene, and me for a FREE special live podcast on Thursday, June 30th, 2022 at 7:30 CT to discuss Leon Laureles’s case.

The Slaying of Sherry Ellen Rowland

In 1982, 20-year-old aspiring model Sherry Ellen Rowland had taken work as a graveyard shift clerk at a 7-Eleven convenience store to supplement her lifestyle in-between modeling gigs. Almost immediately upon starting her shift on November 27th, Sherry began receiving obscene phone calls. Even though a Fort Worth Police Officer began patrolling the store to make sure Sherry was okay, and that the calls were only a bad prank, an unknown assailant entered the store at some point between 2:20 and 3:50 AM, raped, and killed the 20-year-old. Though perpetrators of the incredibly large number of armed robberies ended up on the suspect list, the Fort Worth Police never found Sherry’s killer. Currently, Sherry Rowland’s case is being actively investigated by the Fort Worth Police Cold Case Unit.If you have any information about the rape and murder of Sherry Ellen Rowland in November of 1982, please contact the Fort Worth Cold Case Unit at (817)392-4308.

Ryan Burton Part 2: The Discovery

Part 2 of 2. The year 1984 was the most active year in the investigation of the September of 1981 abduction of 3-year-old Ryan Nicole Burton. Leads the FBI chased seemed like a major stretch, specifically one that appeared as though it was ripped from the script of a made for television movie. But the investigation didn’t begin as it should have until almost three years after Ryan disappeared. The day after President Ronald Reagan christened the newly formed National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at a White House ceremony, a tragic discovery was made, one that changed the trajectory of the case completely. Still, years again passed until another break in the case came in the form of a confession.

Ryan Burton Part 1: The Kidnapping

In September of 1981, the missing child’s case of 3-year-old Ryan Nicole Burton shook the small town of Breckenridge, Texas. Abducted from her crib as her babysitter slept, Ryan’s disappearance spurred an immediate search by various law enforcement agencies and 1,000s of Breckenridge residents. But there was no sign of the missing little girl anywhere, not a single clue left behind by her kidnapper. Tips that included sightings were abundant, and suspects questioned, but police couldn’t catch a break in the investigation and Ryan Burton’s parents anguished with uncertainty as they grasped onto the hope that their daughter would be found alive.

The Disappearance & Murder of Anthony “Burt” Woodson

In late August 1981, after celebrating his 5th birthday only several days before, Burt Woodson disappeared in Mansfield, Texas. According to his uncle and guardian, Terry Lee Woodson, the sleeping boy was in the backseat of his car as he ran into a 7-11 convenience store to get a bite to eat in the early, dark morning hours. When he got close to home, Uncle Terry claimed, he noticed Burt was no longer there. After a relatively thorough search of the areas around the Woodson home and the 7-11 were conducted, police were puzzled. For more than 3 decades, Burt’s case was forgotten in the public, until 2017 when Mansfield Police Detectives reopened the missing child’s case. An arrest came not long after, and a slap on the wrist was meted out, but Burt’s remains have never been found.If you have any information about the location of the remains of Anthony “Burt” Woodson please contact the Mansfield Police at (817)276-4700Please donate to help get #JusticeForLeonLaureles at gofundme.com/f/leon-laureles-private-detective-and-memorialThe Fort Worth Police Department still has nearly 1,000 unsolved cases dating back to 1959.

The Daylight Slaying of Janet Eva Gregston

At a little after 4 PM on August 21st, 1984, on the side of the road at East Loop 338 just outside Odessa, Texas city limits, a man thought he’d witnessed a hit and run involving a pedestrian and a gold Buick. But when Ector County Sheriff’s Deputy David Montgomery discovered it wasn’t a hit and run at all, rather, a woman had been stabbed and slashed repeatedly. The woman was Janet Eva Gregston, who was 7 months pregnant. When a man claiming to have ESP entered the Sheriff’s Office to tell them about his visions, he quickly became suspect number one – or the only suspect, really – and he was subsequently arrested and indicted. Doubt about his guilt, however, wasn’t only felt be his defense attorney – and the entire debacle was eerily reminiscent of another failed attempt at a murder conviction a couple years before.If you have any information about the murder of Janet Eva Gregston, please contact Odessa Crime Stoppers at (432)333-8477.Please donate to help get #JusticeForLeonLaureles at gofundme.com/f/leon-laureles-private-detective-and-memorialYou can donate to law enforcement investigations that need funding or upload your DNA into a database used only for law enforcement investigations at DNAsolves.com If you don’t have DNA data from a consumer testing site, you can get a kit at connect.DNAsolves.comPlease consider donating to the Fort Worth Cold Case Support Group at fwpdcoldcasesupport.orgYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastThe Odessa American, The Austin Chronicle, and UPI Archives were used as sources for this episode.#JusticeForJanetGregston #Odessa #OdessaTX #EctorCountyTX #Texas #TX #TexasTrueCrime #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #ColdCase #Unsolved #Murder #UnsolvedMurder #Homicide #UnsolvedMysteries #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast

The Targeted Killing of Liz Barraza

In late January of 2019, Tomball, Texas residents Liz and Sergio Barraza were scheduled to take a trip to Florida for their 5th wedding anniversary. At the last minute, Liz decided to hold a garage sale to make a little extra spending cash to take with them. As she set up for the sale on the early morning of January 25th, a mysterious figure emerged from a black pickup truck, walked over to Liz in her driveway, and fired a pistol four times at point blank range. Though Liz was alive, miraculously, she ultimately succumbed to her wounds. The Barraza’s doorbell cam and neighbors’ security cameras not only captured images of the pickup truck used in the execution, but they also captured the perpetrator. More than three years later, however, Liz’s murder remains unsolved, in spite of her family’s dogged efforts and the diligence of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.If you have any information about the murder of Elizabeth “Liz” Nuelle Barraza please contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at (713) 222-TIPS or (713) 222-8477.

Christina Marie Gill: Death in Dallas

After a night out at a Deep Ellum nightclub with friends, 20-year-old Christina “Chris” Gill vanished. Her car was discovered in the apartment complex in North Dallas, not far from another club Chris and her friends had also been to the last night she was seen. For months, the Gill Family spared no expense in their efforts to find the missing young woman but not even the Dallas Police could come up with any solid leads. Since Chris disappeared only months after another North Dallas woman, 19-year-old Ashley Fuller Reed, the cops theorized a connection. Seven months after she was seen leaving the club On the Rocks in Deep Ellum, the body of Chris Gill was found, and the nature of the discovery only further confused the investigation.If you have any information about the murder of Christina Marie Gill, please call Texas Crime Stoppers at (800)252-TIPS or (800)252-8477.Please consider attending the Day of Remembrance for Leon Laureles in Brown County on May 14th, 2022, from 1 to 4 PM.

Massacre at Loma Alta: The Arellano Family

The car was packed tight with a mother, a father, a young child, a toddler, a sister, and a baby. Though the trip wasn’t anything new to the family, they visited Texas and the US often, an unfortunate and horrific series of events took place. Vehicle issues led the Arellano Family directly into the path of a psychopathic devil who would prove to be no less than the annihilator of nearly the entire family.

Ashley Fuller Reed: Disappearance in Dallas

In January 1990, 19-year-old Ashley Reed was new to Dallas, Texas, having moved there only months before with her mom and young brother. Making new friends wasn’t difficult for Ashley, but it was winter and the process going a little slower than it would in summertime, perhaps. On the 13th, she was thrilled when she called her mother to tell her a man had asked her on a date. The man’s name was Robert, and he was a cowboy type. Robert was tall and handsome to boot. He was also the last person to see Ashley Reed, who disappeared that night, never having called her mother to check in as promised. When the body of a Waco woman was found in a Southeast Dallas County Gravel pit 2 years later, many began theorizing a serial killer was responsible for Ashley’s disappearance.

The Murder of Kathleen Suckley Part 2: Eye Witness

The killing of 29-year-old single mother of two, Kathy Suckley, had the residents of Corpus Christi’s southside in a panic. Police felt the public pressure to solve the case. Although identifying a suspect, securing an indictment, and making an arrest took only about two weeks, the charges didn’t stick. Likely, because the person who witnessed the crime take place was a child and the accused’s lawyer was the slickest ticket in town, Doug Tinker. Even after advancements in DNA make developing a profile from a minute amount of biological material possible, Kathy’s case remains unsolved. And she is not the only victim.

The Murder of Kathleen Suckley Part 1: Kathy’s Story

Kathleen Schleicher, better known as Kathy, grew up in both a Los Angeles suburb and later, a beach town 60 miles south of California’s most popular city. She was the youngest of the four children born to her parents and the only girl. Her childhood was normal; in junior high and high school, Kathy was athletic and became somewhat fashion obsessed, something that eventually landed her in the glitz and glamour of LA. There, she met someone, got married, became Kathy Suckley, and had two boys of her own before ending up in Corpus Christi, Texas, where her new husband’s family lived. After things between the couple soured, and after splitting up, Kathy struggled a bit to raise her boys on her own but was making it happen. In 1993, after living in Corpus Christi less than a year, the unthinkable happened. Kathy was murdered in her own apartment.

The Troubling Disappearance of Coach Kenny Hilscher

After leading the Bloomington High School Bobcats to their first playoffs since he played ball there, twenty years before, Coach Kenneth Hilscher was even more valued and respected there than ever before. His students loved him anyway, as both a coach and a teacher since he was always there for them with encouraging and motivating advice no matter the issue. But in April of 1995, Coach Kenny vanished into thin air, leaving behind only troubling clues that strongly suggested he met with foul play. Though searches turned up evidence containing blood that matched Kenny’s, and pointed to how he died, there was no trace of where to find him and he remains missing to this day.If you have any information about the disappearance, or murder of Coach Kenneth Wayne Hilscher, please contact the Texas Department of Public Safety at (512) 424-5074.You can help get #JusticeForBrittanyMcGlone by contributing to the reward fund by calling the Wood County Crime Stoppers at (903) 850-9060.Please donate to help get #JusticeForLeonLaureles at gofundme.com/f/leon-laureles-private-detective-and-memorialYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastThe Victoria Advocate, The Austin American-Statesman, CrossroadsToday.com, The Texas State Historical Association’s website, and PortOfVictoria.com were used as sources for this episode.#WhereIsCoachKenny #Bloomington #BloomingtonTX #VictoriaTX #VictoriaCountyTX #Texas #TX #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #UnsolvedMysteries #Missing #MissingPerson #Murder #Disappearance #Disappeared #Vanished

Rosa Sandoval’s Mysterious Disappearance & Murder

In May of 2004 12-year-old Rosa Sandoval missed the last day of elementary school and the class party that was to take place and was never seen again. San Antonio Police sprung to action fast, but by the time Rosa was found to be missing, at least 14 hours had passed. Or so everyone originally thought. The cops later found out that perhaps almost 24 hours had passed since Rosa Sandoval was last seen. Either way, not a trace of the missing girl could be found, and police activity reported in a careless way by local media led to baseless speculation against family. To this day, although one clue was eventually publicly released, police seem to be no closer to finding out what happened to Rosa.If you have any information about the murder of Rosa Sandoval, please contact Bexar County Crime Stoppers at 210-224-STOP, or 210-224-7868.You can help get #JusticeForBrittanyMcGlone by contributing to the reward fund by calling the Wood County Crime Stoppers at (903) 850-9060.Please donate to help get #JusticeForLeonLaureles at gofundme.com/f/leon-laureles-private-detective-and-memorialYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastThe Website of the Washington State Office of the Attorney General, The San Antonio Express-News, FoxSanAntonio.com, KSAT.com, Court TV, Kens5.com, and WOAI.com were used as sources for this episode.#JusticeForRosaSandoval #SanAntonio #SanAntonioTX #BexarCountyTX #Texas #TX #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #UnsolvedMysteries #Missing #Murder

The Puzzling Disappearance of Rachel Cooke Part 5: The Foreman

Part 5 of 5. Convicted a year and a half later of a crime that could easily be considered similar to the prevailing theory in Rachel Cooke’s disappearance, an Austin area man was no stranger to violent crime. On the day Rachel went missing, and for some time before, this individual had been working as a foreman for a crew doing work in the area of the North Lake subdivision and is known to have seen, and cat-called at, Rachel as she ran her routine route on her morning workouts. As if Rachel’s case wasn’t convoluted enough, controversies within the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office only further confused it and undoubtedly hindered progress. If you have any information about the disappearance of Rachel Louise Cooke, please contact the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office at (512) 948-2911 or their cold case tip line at (512) 943-5204.You can help get #JusticeForBrittanyMcGlone by contributing to the reward fund by calling the Wood County Crime Stoppers at (903) 850-9060.Please donate to help get #JusticeForLeonLaureles at gofundme.com/f/leon-laureles-private-detective-and-memorialYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcast#WhereIsRachelCooke #JusticeForRachelCooke #Georgetown #GeorgetownTX #WilliamsonCountyTX #Texas #TX #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #UnsolvedMysteries #MissingPerson #Missing #Vanished #Disappeared

The Puzzling Disappearance of Rachel Cooke Part 4: The Cop

Part 4 of 5. In 1998, policeman Jimmy Fennell, Jr quit his job in Giddings, Texas after getting new work in Georgetown. Tragically, Fennell’s fiance, Stacey Stites, had been killed in 1996 and, perhaps, many thought the man was coming to a new city as final step in moving forward with his life. Fennell certainly did move forward behaving as he had at his old department. Though far from the only allegations of misconduct against him, Fennell came under fire in 2007 for kidnapping and raping an incredibly vulnerable young woman. Though the charges were about as watered-down as they could be, the policeman went to prison for 10 years. But in 2002, when Rachel Cooke disappeared, Jimmy Fennel was an active patrolman in Georgetown, Texas. Considering his past, and the possibility that he is actually responsible for his fiancé’s murder in 1996, is it possible he could be responsible for Rachel’s disappearance?

The Puzzling Disappearance of Rachel Cooke Part 3: The Confession

Part 3 of 5. Rachel Cooke’s parents believed their daughter was no longer alive, but still held out a sliver of hope that she was. In 2006, four years after her January 2002 disappearance, those hopes were completely dashed when a convicted killer confessed to bludgeoning, raping, and killing Rachel. Among this convicted killer’s many disdainful qualities, however, was a predilection to lying simply to cause confusion or emotional pain. Did Michael Keith Moore really kill Rachel Cooke or was his admission just a ick and psychopathic game?If you have any information about the disappearance of Rachel Louise Cooke, please contact the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office at (512) 948-2911 or their cold case tip line at (512) 943-5204.If you are able, please donate to help our friend Arlene hire a private investigator to find the killer of her uncle and best friend, Leon Laureles, at gofundme.com/f/leon-laureles-private-detective-and-memorialPlease consider donating to the Fort Worth Cold Case Support Group at fwpdcoldcasesupport.orgYou can donate to law enforcement investigations that need funding or upload your DNA into a database used only for law enforcement investigations at DNAsolves.comIf you don’t have DNA data from a consumer testing site, you can get a kit at connect.DNAsolves.comYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcast#WhereIsRachelCooke #JusticeForRachelCooke #Georgetown #GeorgetownTX #WilliamsonCountyTX #Texas #TX #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #UnsolvedMysteries #MissingPerson #Missing #Vanished #Disappeared

The Puzzling Disappearance of Rachel Cooke Part 2: The Promise

Part 2 of 5. 19-year-old Rachel Cooke’s disappearance consumed her father, Robert Cooke. While the month following saw incredible activity in the form of searches from incredibly valuable Texas-based organizations and The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office, that activity dwindled as the year went on. New composite sketches and heightened media presence due to the Cooke family’s persistence seemed like promising prospects. But even after what might be the largest search and recovery operation the county had ever seen, the efforts fell short and there still wasn’t a trace of Rachel Cooke to be found.

The Puzzling Disappearance of Rachel Cooke Part 1: The Run

On January 10th, 2002, back home in Williamson County on winter break from college in San Diego, 19-year-old Rachel Cooke slept in a little. When she woke up, her parents and sister had all gone about their day. Rachel spoke with her boyfriend back in California for a few minutes, put on her workout clothes, and went for her usual 4 to 6 mile run. Then, as Rachel walked toward the Cooke home, her cooling off period after the run, she seemingly vanished into thin air. The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office told Robert and Janet Cooke that they were overreacting – that Rachel just ran off to party and would be back in no time. When it was finally clear to them that was not the case, plenty of time had already been lost, and there wasn’t a trace of Rachel Cooke to be found.

Killed in Broad Daylight: Sylvia Salinas

On Halloween, 1989, 30-year-old Sylvia Salinas, owner of Salinas Food Store in Galveston, Texas, stayed behind to stock the shelves while her folks returned home for lunch. At 1:23 PM, police were informed by the company who handles the alarm service for the small grocery, that the silent alarm had been tripped. When a patrolman arrived at the scene, he found Sylvia in a pool of blood, stabbed through the heart with a large knife. Virtually no leads could be produced, and the case went cold almost immediately. Decades later, as forensic DNA science advanced to a point that gave the family hope, a natural disaster dashed those hopes.If you have any information about the murder of Sylvia Salinas, please contact Crime Stoppers of Galveston at (409) 763-8477.Check out the podcast Another Shade of Crime at spreaker.com/show/another-shade-of-crime_1You can donate to law enforcement investigations that need funding or upload your DNA into a database used only for law enforcement investigations at DNAsolves.comIf you don’t have DNA data from a consumer testing site, you can get a kit at connect.DNAsolves.comPlease consider donating to the Fort Worth Cold Case Support Group at fwpdcoldcasesupport.orgYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcast#JusticeForSylviaSalinas #Galveston #GalvestonTX #GalvestonCounty #Texas #TX #TexasTrueCrime #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #ColdCase #Unsolved #Murder #UnsolvedMurder #Homicide #UnsolvedMysteries #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast

The Mysterious Murder of Angie Irsay & the (Un)Resolved Slaying of Jaqueline Romero

On this episode of gone cold, we cover two unrelated stories from the city of El Paso; both likely impacted, or were impacted by, the 1987 desert killings thought by law enforcement to be perpetrated solely by David Leonard Wood. Before listening, we highly suggest you check out our episodes “Lost in the Desert” Parts 1 & 2.First, the disappearance and murder of 16-year-old Angie Irsay in 1988, followed by the murder of Jacqueline Romero in 1986. Jacqueline’s murder was, perhaps, solved. A jury, however, disagreed, leaving her probable murderer free from accountability. Angie Irsay’s case in contrast, never came close to resolution. Cover photo is Angie Irsay. We could not find a photo of Jacqueline Romero.If you have any information about the murder of Angela Margarite Irsay or Jaqueline Belinda Romero, please call Crime stoppers of El Paso at (915) 566 – 8477.You can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast......and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastThe El Paso Times, The Tyler Morning Telegraph, and the article Memories of Angie on New Mexico State University’s website were used as sources for these stories.#JusticeForAngieIrsay #JusticeForJacquelineRomero #ElPaso #ElPasoTX #Texas #TX #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #UnsolvedMysteries #Missing #MissingPersons #TheDesertKiller

Lost in the Desert Part 2: Cheryl Lynn Vasquez-Dismukes

During the Summer of 1987, the disappearances of girls and young women were stacking up in El Paso. Though the police seemed to think most were simply runaways, they changed their tune when the bodies of two missing females were found in the city’s Northeast desert on September 4th. When two more bodies were found a month and a half later, El Paso police acted fast and arrested their suspect – but he wasn’t charged with the murders, rather, he was charged with the rape of a woman who he had to let go. Eventually, David Leonard Wood was convicted of a total of six Northeast El Paso murders that occurred in the summer of 87 but three area females are still missing to this day. This episode of gone cold is the further story of the Desert Killer’s known victims and the third that is potentially his victim: Cheryl Lynn Vasquez-Dismukes.If you have any information about the disappearances of Melissa Alaniz or Cheryl Vasquez Dismukes, please contact the El Paso Police at 915-832-4445.If you have any information about the disappearances of Marjorie Alice Knox, please contact the Dona Ana County, New Mexico Sheriff’s Office at 575-526-0795.Be sure to check out our pals over at the podcast Fort Worth Roots.Please consider donating to the Fort Worth Cold Case Support Group, a non-profit set up in hopes to fund the testing needed to give the families of Fort Worth murder victims justice.

Cheryl Henry & Andy Atkinson: The Houston Lover’s Lane Murders Part 3

Part 3 of 3. The initial investigation into the slayings of 22-year-old Cheryl Henry and 21-year-old Andy Atkinson was meticulous, with no stones left unturned, but it resulted in virtually no breaks. Though DNA obtained as the result of the attacker raping Cheryl produced a strong profile, no one Detective Billy Belk and company could find was a match. Then, almost 20 years later, the biggest break in the case occurred when the DNA got a hit in CODIS. But there was a problem – the matched DNA also belonged to an unknown assailant. Underlying this story is another one: the story of advancements in DNA technology. Will new technology, i.e. forensic genealogy, finally give this story an ending? If you have any information about the Lover’s Lane murders of Cheryl Henry and Andy Atkinson, please contact Houston area crime stoppers at 713-222-8477.Please visit EndTheBackLog.org and consider helping in their mission to hold accountable the perpetrators of sexual violence.

After the bodies of 22-year-old Cheryl Henry and 21-year-old Andy Atkinson were found, on August 23rd and 24th 1990 respectively, Houston Homicide Detective Billy Belk was called to the scene to begin the investigation into their murders. Alongside other homicide detectives, Belk scoured the city for leads – first questioning and taking blood samples from all Andy and Cheryl’s known friends and patrons of the bars they frequented. Nothing turned up, even after examining robberies and sexual assaults that, like these Lover’s Lane Murders, took place in West Houston.

Sherri Ann Jarvis: Identifying Walker County Jane Doe

On November 1st, 1980, the body of a young female was found on the side of Interstate 45 near Huntsville in Walker County, Texas. For 41 years, this girl was unidentified and known as Walker County Jane Doe. It wasn’t for the lack of investigative effort – the case had been revisited periodically over the years. Rather, the Jane Doe’s identity remained unknown because the technology didn’t exist until recently. When Walker County Sheriff’s Detective Thomas Bean took up the case in 2015, even he had to wait for the right technology to come along.

The Assassination of Clarence Ray Hudgins Part 3: The Devil You Know

Part 3 of 3. The October 1981 slaying of 27-year-old Clarence Ray Hudgins at his home near Kilgore, Texas is still unsolved, but it’s not for the lack of effort on his mother’s part. For 40 years now, Kathryn Hudgins has collected documents and evidence concerning her son’s case. This evidence makes one thing strikingly clear: that Ray’s business partner, who he cut ties with not long before his assassination, had plenty to gain by Ray’s demise, in the form of dollar signs. Even though the Kilgore, Texas Police and the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office were stumped, Kathryn Hudgins seems to have put the pieces together just fine on her own. Only, she can’t get folks to listen. If you have any information about the assassination of Clarence Ray Hudgins, please contact Gregg County Crime Stoppers at 903-236-7867.Please consider donating to the Fort Worth Cold Case Support Group, a non-profit set up in hopes to fund the testing needed to give the families of Fort Worth murder victims justice.

The Assassination of Clarence Ray Hudgins Part 2: Lucas & Toole

When two drifters were apprehended states apart in 1983, one began confessing to any and every unsolved murder under the hot Texas sun and beyond. Though the slaying of Clarence Ray Hudgins in Gregg County, Texas had all the signs of a well-planned out hit, and these two drifters’ crimes were nothing of the sort, Texas Ranger Glenn Elliot still wanted to explore the possibility that Henry Lee Lucas and Ottis Elwood Toole were responsible.

The Assassination of Clarence Ray Hudgins Part 1: Firebomb

The oilfield business in East Texas, once upon a time, was wrought with shady characters who’d gladly revert to egregious crimes to stay on top of the game. Perhaps that is the reason Oilfield Sandblasting & Coating Incorporated’s owner, 27-year-old Clarence Ray Hudgins, was gunned down on the porch of his home in October of 1981. But that theory is almost too easy, and besides that, shady figures in the business usually only sabotaged or stole equipment. Murder was much more of a rarity. Either way, the Kilgore, Texas Police and the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office were stumped. Motives were easily theorized, but much more difficult to prove.If you have any information about the assassination of Clarence Ray Hudgins, please contact Gregg County Crime Stoppers at 903-236-7867.You can donate to law enforcement investigations that need funding or upload your DNA into a database used only for law enforcement investigations at DNAsolves.comIf you don’t have DNA data from a consumer testing site, you can get a kit at connect.DNAsolves.comYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast......and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastSources for this episode, largely, were the documents supplied to us by Ray Hudgins’s Mother Kathryn.

Lost in Midland: Where is Caitlin Denison?

In January 2018, 19-year-old Caitlin Denison boarded a plane from Reno, Nevada to Midland, Texas. The following day, she briefly spoke with her sister but hasn’t been heard from since. Though the man she traveled to Midland with was found and questioned after Caitlin was reported missing, Midland authorities had no cause to arrest the man – no evidence that he’d harmed the missing young woman. Months after Caitlin vanished, a video that went viral raised the family’s hopes that she’d been found, but those hopes were dashed as that mystery unfolded. The following year, a potentially grim discovery further sullied those hopes. Caitlin Marie Denison is still missing.If you have any information about the disappearance of Caitlin Marie Denison please contact the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Missing Person’s Clearing House at 800-346-3243 or Midland Crime Stoppers at 432-694-8477.Please consider donating to the fund to find Caitlin at gofundme.com/f/help-find-caitlin-denisonFor factual information about human trafficking and to find out how you can help, please visit the Polaris Project at polarisproject.org/You can donate to law enforcement investigations that need funding or upload your DNA into a database used only for law enforcement investigations at DNAsolves.comIf you don’t have DNA data from a consumer testing site, you can get a kit at connect.DNAsolves.comYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcast#WhereIsCaitlinDenison #Midland #MidlandTX #PermianBasin #Texas #TX #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #UnsolvedMysteries #MissingPerson #Missing #Vanished #Disappeared

Dead in the Water: The Murder of Shelley Lou Watkins

On Labor Day 1993, Shelley Lou Watkins, her husband Jerry, and others gathered at their cedar Creek Lake home to celebrate the holiday. But after an argument broke out between the couple, Shelley disappeared and since the manner in which she was reported missing is suspect at the very least, no searches were conducted. By the time the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office found out about the missing mother of two, it was far too late since her body was found floating in the Trinity River by fisherman the very same day. Although a grand jury indicted the prime suspect, he never stood trial and Shelley Lou Watkins’s murder remains unsolved.If you have any information about the slaying of 35-year-old Shelley Lou Watkins on Labor Day of 1993, please contact the Henderson County Sheriff’s Department at 903-677-6331.You can donate to law enforcement investigations that need funding or upload your DNA into a database used only for law enforcement investigations at DNAsolves.comIf you don’t have DNA data from a consumer testing site, you can get a kit at connect.DNAsolves.comYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast......and on YouTube at: youtube.com/c/gonecoldpodcastThe Texas State Historical Society, The Athens Review, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, The Corsicana Daily Sun, The Tyler Courier-Times, and the Washington Post were used as sources for this episode.#JusticeForShelleyLouWatkins #Corsicana #CorsicanaTX #Texas #TX #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #UnsolvedMysteries #UnsolvedMurder #Murder #Unsolved

Elizabeth Barclay & the Dallas Child Murders

In October of 1979 7-year-old Elizabeth Lynne Barclay, along with her little brother and a neighbor friend, headed to a convenience store near home to get some ice cream. Just minutes after they left, Elizabeth’s brother came running back to the Barclay apartment, telling his mother that his big sister had been taken by a man. What followed was a massive search effort conducted by the Dallas Police, the Barclay Family, and volunteers from all over. She was found deceased miles from home about 7 weeks later. The death was ruled homicide, most likely by gunshot wound. No clear suspect was ever identified, but it’s likely at least some Dallas Detectives theorized a connection between Elizabeth’s case and the 1977 murders and abductions of 7-year-old Ladina Ann McCoy and 12-year-old Suzie Marie Mages. Clear suspects in those cases, too, are elusive. If you have any information about the 1979 murder of Elizabeth Barclay, please contact the Texas Rangers at their cold case website (dps.texas.gov/coldcase) or by phone at 800-346-3242If you have any information about the 1977 murder of Ladina McCoy, or the 1977 murder of Suzie Mages, please contact North Texas Crime Stoppers at 877 373 8477If you’d like to donate to law enforcement investigations that need funding or upload your DNA into a database used only for law enforcement investigations, you can at DNAsolves.comIf you don’t have DNA data from a consumer testing site, you can get a kit at connect.DNAsolves.comYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcastThe Dallas Morning News, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, The Wills Point Chronicle, and the Denton Record-Chronicle were used as sources for this episode.#JusticeForElizabethBarclay #JusticeForLadinaMcCoy #JusticeForSuzieMages #Dallas #DallasTX #Texas #TX #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #UnsolvedMysteries #UnsolvedMurder #Murder #Unsolved

The Slaying of Judy Herron and the Kidnapping for Ransom of Amy McNeil

In November of 1984, a brutal and shocking murder rocked the otherwise crime-free and exclusive Colleyville subdivision Tara Plantation. Judy Herron was a 37-year-old stay at home parent and was attacked and slain not long after her husband Lee left for work. Though Colleyville authorities enlisted the help of multiple outside jurisdictions, Judy’s killer slipped away without so much as a trace. Less than two months later, two similar, violent crimes perpetrated by the same man had Colleyville Detectives almost certain they’d found the man who murdered Judy Herron. Evidence to prove it, however, was elusive.If you have any information about the Judy Herron murder case, please contact Colleyville PD at (817) 503-1202.Special thanks to Shawn B for bringing our attention to Judy’s case.If you’d like to donate to law enforcement investigations that need funding or upload your DNA into a database used only for law enforcement investigations, you can at DNAsolves.comIf you don’t have DNA data from a consumer testing site, you can get a kit at connect.DNAsolves.comYou can support gone cold and listen ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcastTexas State Historical Association, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum were used as sources for this episode.#JusticeForJudyHerron #Colleyville #ColleyvilleTX #TarrantCountyTX #Texas #TX #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #UnsolvedMysteries #UnsolvedMurder #Murder #Unsolved

No Trace: The Disappearance of Tara Breckenridge

On August 4th, 1992, 23-year-old Tara Breckenridge vanished without so much as a trace after leaving her job at Houston’s The Men’s Club. Besides a theory that her car was tampered with, Houston Detectives were ultimately unable to find a single solid lead, even after discovering that Tara had an admirer and that she and her boyfriend were having relationship trouble. After a 2007 DNA match between two other unsolved Houston cases, speculation that a serial rapist and killer was stalking women who worked at adult entertainment venues was the talk of the metropolis.If you have any information about the disappearance of Tara Breckenridge, please call Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.

After Glen Samuel McCurley was arrested for the kidnapping, sexual assault, and murder of Carla Walker, Tarrant County Assistant Criminal District Attorneys Kim D’Avignon and Emily Dixon, along with DA Investigator Chris Lachance, began their work to obtain a conviction. First, the case had to go before a Grand Jury, followed by a series of pretrial hearings in which the man’s defense attempted to get evidence thrown out. But the efforts of the court appointed defense team, for the most part, failed. Last episode, we heard Detectives and DNA experts recall their roles in the arrest of Glen McCurley.

Justice for Carla Part 1: 1974-2020

It wasn’t for a lack of effort and determination that past Fort Worth Police Detectives couldn’t solve the February 17th, 1974 murder of Carla Walker. It was because her killer was a complete stranger and the technology needed to find the perpetrator didn’t exist. Forty-five years after the terrible crime, Detectives Leah Wagner and Jeff Bennett began working the case from scratch, and their diligence paid off after their paths crossed both Mallory Pagenkopf of the Serological Research Institute and David Mittelman of Othram, Incorporated.

Death in Houston High Society Epilogue: The Riddle of Dean Goss

The final episode of our Death in Houston High Society series. Dean Goss’s final decent was in November of 1992. Both rumors of that the man had committed suicide and been slain by the same person who’d killed his first and second wives swirled around Houston, but the truth was neither. Friends of Dean eulogized him at one of the man’s favorite watering holes. But after the death, the slayings of Elaine Richman Goss, Paula Brawley Goss, and James Jackson Brown seemed to become erased from Houston’s collective memory. The murders remain unsolved to this day, and it seems incredible that “The Riddle of Dean Goss” didn’t land itself along the city’s other infamous true crime cases – such as the Ice Box Murders and the Candyman.You can support gone cold – texas true crime and listen ad-free at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast Find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcastThe Houston Press, The Houston Chronicle, The Austin Statesman, kvue.com, Headquarters Detective Magazine’s November 1993 issue and court documents were used as sources for this episode.#JusticeForPaulaGoss #JusticeForElaineGoss #JusticeForJJBrown #DeanGoss #BlueBeard #Houston #HoustonTX #HarrisCountyTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #Murder #UnsolvedMysteries #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime

Death in Houston High Society Part 4: Dean Goss V. Scott Brawley

If you’d have asked any of Dean Goss’s friends how he was doing after the death of his second wife Paula, they’d tell you he was a wreck – miserable. None of them seemed to believe the man was responsible for Paula’s murder or, for that matter, the slaying of his first wife, Elaine. The cops, too, appeared to think Dean was in the clear. Houston’s press, however, had no problem conducting their own trial of the man through newspaper articles and television news segments. “The Blue Beard of Houston” was just too sensational a headline to let go. When Dean Goss took his slain second wife’s brother to court over a dispute about her estate, however, revelations about the man – and the man’s second-born son – came to light. Details of the investigation of Paula’s murder, among other things, became publicly known.

Death in Houston High Society Part 3: The Murder of Paula Goss

A couple years after the death of his first wife Elaine, Dean Goss met and married Paula Brawley. Only months after putting up a substantial amount of money to get Dean’s latest idea off the ground, that venture went belly up following a series of bizarre, suspicious, and flagrantly shady events. Paula had lost her investment and her relationship with Dean was soured. Following a few other bizarre circumstances, in July of 1985, Paula Goss was brutally murdered. The act appeared to be one of rage, but Houston Homicide Detectives failed to identify a clear cut motive and Paula’s murder remains unsolved.

In 1982, when Dean Goss needed cash to pay for his murdered wife Elaine’s funeral, he sought out Houston Carpet & Flooring magnate Frank DiMaria. Back in 1968, when Imperial Carpet executive Alan Berg disappeared and was later found murdered, Frank DiMaria stood accused of having hired a notorious Texas hitman – Charles Voyde Harrelson – to do the job. DiMaria and the Bergs had been feuding for some time, and though Harrelson’s girlfriend came clean about her role in Alan’s death, his murder remains officially unsolved to this day.You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast Find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcastThe Brazosport Facts, the Fort Worth Star Telegram, The Odessa American, the Austin Statesman, and David Berg’s book Run, Brother, Run: A Memoir of a Murder in My Family were used as sources for this episode.#JusticeForAlanBerg #Houston #HoustonTX #HarrisCountyTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #Murder #MurderForHire #Hitman #UnsolvedMysteries #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime

In 1968, Elaine and Dean Goss opened up the Holiday Dinner Theater in Houston, Texas. The place was a huge hit and so was Dean Goss, who quickly became known as “The Jackie Gleason of Houston.” Dean was so big, in fact, that he and Elaine’s establishment was renamed The Dean Goss Dinner Theater. For a decade, Elaine and Dean lived the high life, hobnobbing with socialites, celebrities, and politicians. But after the theater went out of business, things spiraled downward. Then in 1982 came the unthinkable when Elaine Goss was murdered in the couple’s home in the Meyerland neighborhood of Houston. But it would be far from the last slaying of someone close to Dean Goss, and many, perhaps unfairly, began calling him by a different nickname, “The Bluebeard of Houston.”You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast Find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcastThe Houston Press, The Houston Chronicle, The Austin Statesman, kvue.com, and court documents were used as sources for this episode.#JusticeForElaineGoss #DeanGoss #BlueBeard #Houston #HoustonTX #HarrisCountyTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Podcast #ColdCase #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #Murder #UnsolvedMysteries #GoneCold #GoneColdPodcast #TexasTrueCrime

Death in Houston High Society Preface 2: The Murder of Jacque Mossler

A year after millionaire businessman Jacque Mossler found out his wife Candy was having an incestuous love affair with her nephew, he was living in Florida after leaving the couples mansion in Houston, Texas. When Candy brought the estranged couple’s kids for a visit, Jacque was brutally murdered in an act of overkill that had to be personal. Candy’s nephew and lover, Melvin Lane Powers, just happened to fly into Miami hours before Jacque was killed, and Candy had what looked like a staged alibi. But after their arrests, they spared no expense and got the best defense attorney in the country: Percy Foreman.

The Mysterious Murder of Jennifer Harris Part 2

The investigation into the murder of 28-year-old Jennifer Harris of Bonham, Texas was virtually cold from the get-go. Besides the jurisdictional issues and lack of leads in the case, some evidence was damaged and most lost. The turnaround rate at the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office certainly didn’t help matters either. The rumor mill, too, hindered the investigation. But there were always two suspects, and though some believe one was the most likely, the other, it could be argued, seems just as likely. The multiple agencies who have investigated Jennifer’s murder, however, have yet to turn over enough evidence to charge either man. Part 2 of 2.If you have any information about the murder of Jennifer Lenette Harris in Bonham, Texas, please call the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office at (903)583–2143.

The Mysterious Murder of Jennifer Harris Part 1

On Mother’s Day 2002, 28-year-old Jennifer Harris disappeared from Bonham, Texas after spending the evening with a close friend. Though she didn’t say with who or where, Jennifer told her friend as she was leaving just before 8 PM that she had to meet up with someone. Her Jeep was found the following day. Six days after that, Jennifer Harris’s body was found floating in the Red River, on the Texas / Oklahoma border. After issues with jurisdiction and virtually no evidence, the case was almost immediately cold. Autopsy results had the town of Bonham and Fannin County talking, and a love triangle only further complicated the case.

The Cold-Blooded & Forgotten Slaying of Leslye Diane Koon

On January 24th, 1969, one of Gregg County, Texas’s most cold-blooded and savage murders occurred: that of 17-year-old Longview High School senior Leslye Diane Koon. The slaying prompted one of the city’s most extensive and intensive investigations in its history. What you might call a taskforce was created that included the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office, the District Attorney’s Office, and Longview Police Detectives, who were on loan out of their jurisdiction. Upon the discovery of a life insurance policy in Leslye’s name, the District Attorney identified three suspects who were charged, indicted, and tried for the murder. But the case remains unsolved to this day – and hasn’t been mentioned since.If you have any information about the 1969 murder of Leslye Diane Koon, please contact Gregg County Crime Stoppers at 903-236-STOP.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database, dnasolves.com.

The Uncanny Disappearance of Michael Chambers Part 2

Many extensive searches failed to locate 70-year-old retired Dallas Fire Fighter Michael Glen Chambers after he disappeared from his home, presumably, in Hunt County, Texas. With no clues, the Chambers family was riddled with uncertainty, and the actions of one family member raised the suspicions of some. Meanwhile, the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office was coming to their own theories, which differed from the family’s theory and that of the private investigator they hired. When all the pieces of the puzzle were put together, however, massive holes can be found in each; No scenario, when the facts are gathered in their entirety, makes sense.

The Uncanny Disappearance of Michael Chambers Part 1

In March of 2017, 70-year-old retired Dallas Fire Fighter Michael Glen Chambers was added to a dark list in Hunt County, Texas: a list of unusual and mysterious disappearances. Michael was well-loved and highly respected in the community of Quinlan, not only for his past as a fireman and paramedic but also for his activity in the church and his talent for restoring classic muscle cars. The man had no enemies and the day he was last seen started out as a normal one. The way it ended, however, was anything but normal, and the blood found in Michael’s workshop alluded to possible foul play...or perhaps something else entirely.

Solving the Murder of Mary Catherine Edwards

Othram Incorporated CEO David Mittelman joins us to tell the story of the January 1995 rape and slaying of 31-year-old elementary school teacher Mary Catherine Edwards. The case went unsolved for 26 years, most of which it remained cold but certainly not forgotten. In April of 2021, thanks to a collaborative effort by the Beaumont Police, the Texas Rangers, authorities in Ohio, and Othram Incorporated, Catherine’s killer was identified, arrested, and charged for her murder. Her killer, Clayton Bernard Foreman, had a prior rape on his record that shared similarities. It seems the likelihood is strong that Foreman, a violent and seemingly unapologetic offender, is responsible for more similar crimes.If you have any information about Mary Catherine Edwards’s case or about her killer, Clayton Bernard Foreman please call the Beaumont Police at 409-832-1234.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database, dnasolves.com.

The Murder of Leon Laureles in Brown County, Texas Part 2

Juan Leon Laureles was only 30 years old when he was shot execution style on the side of a small gravel road just east of Brownwood, Texas in May of 1996 – his 1988 Ford Thunderbird ablaze. Few theories have been floating around since that terrible, tragic day. The Brown County Sheriff’s department has theirs but won’t acknowledge that there might be a better one: a theory that actual makes sense and seems to better fit the known facts – that the slaying was an act of hate. But, of course, there are other plausible theories and some recent information that allows for even more speculation. Still though, with the climate of hate towards the gay and lesbian community, among other groups, in Brown County and the city of Brownwood, the possibility that Leon’s murder was a hate crime is extremely possible and plausible. Did the Sheriff’s Department investigation lag because Leon Laureles was gay? It certainly seems that way. Part 2 of 2.

The Murder of Leon Laureles in Brown County, Texas Part 1

30-year-old Juan Leon Laureles was well-loved and respected by his family and friends. So, when he was murdered execution style and his vehicle set afire, those who knew and loved him were shocked; Leon didn't live a high-risk lifestyle by any stretch of the imagination. Through the years, as his case has grown colder and colder, the Brown County Sheriff's Department's theory of a motive makes less and less sense. However, as a gay Hispanic man, Leon Laureles killed as the result of an act of hate - of bigotry - seems very plausible. For Arlene, Leon's niece who is only a couple years younger than him and was his best friend, the uncertainty and mystery surrounding what happened and why is excruciating. Much of Leon's remaining family, in fact, live with the pain every waking moment. The Brown County Sheriff's Department is no closer to solving Leon's murder than they were the day it happened, and, perhaps, it's because they refuse to see it as it is. Part 1 of 2.

Two innocent individuals were struck by bullets that day as men fired into the complex – 19-year-old Briuna Harps and her friend. While her friend sustained non-life-threatening injuries, Briuna died at John Peter Smith Hospital about 30 minutes later.

The Slayings of Janine Johnson & Stephen Taylor in Ferris, Texas

29-year-old Janine Johnson and 39-year-old Stephen Taylor had a good thing going. Their romance had blossomed into a full-blown commitment and Stephen had developed an extremely close friendship and bond with Janine’s 11-year-old son. They lived a quiet and relatively unassuming life in the city of Ferris, Texas – a place that was also quiet, unassuming, and safe. But in March of 2009, Stephen and Janine were slain in one of the most brutal and methodical crimes Ferris had ever seen. The murder scene, in fact, suggested that whoever killed the couple had done it before. The police were stumped and left to wonder if Janine and Stephen were murdered as the result of a case of mistaken identity.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database, dnasolves.com.

When the Devil Came to Gilmer: The Disappearance of Kelly Dae Wilson Part 3

On the night of Sunday, January 5th, 1992 in the small town of Gilmer, Texas 17-year-old Kelly Dae Wilson vanished without a trace. Though a special prosecutor who came to Gilmer with a gleam of glory in his eye tried to tie several individuals to Kelly’s abduction, imprisonment, rape, and slaying – including the man who’d been working nonstop to find answers, Gilmer Police Sergeant James York Brown – his attempts at creating a Satanic scandal ultimately failed. But Lyford’s witch hunt did succeed at one thing: hindering the real investigation into what happened to Kelly. There were three decent suspects who, had it not been for Satanic Panic, each might have proven to be responsible for at least had knowledge.

But Sergeant James York Brown was making progress. Unfortunately, that progress was thwarted when a man named Scott Lyford came to town and cooked up a Satanic Cult scandal, one that eventually ruined the lives of several individuals and damaged the Kelly Wilson case so badly that Texas Attorney General Chief Special prosecutor said it would likely never be solved.

On the night of Sunday, January 5th, 1992 in the small town of Gilmer, Texas 17-year-old Kelly Dae Wilson vanished without a trace. With virtually no clues and fewer leads the investigation moved slow, but it certainly wasn’t for the lack of effort on the part of Kelly’s family, a diligent Gilmer Police Sergeant named James York Brown, and Upshur County Sheriff Buck Cross. One of the first leads came when 20-year-old Angela Hammond disappeared 500 miles north of Gilmer in Clinton, Missouri, but it fizzled out fast. After that, the investigation into the disappearance of Kelly Dae Wilson took a series of turns for the worse, including red herrings and a bad case of Satanic Panic.

The Savage Murder of John Godfrey in Victoria Part 2

When John Godfrey’s body was found down a rural road just outside the Victoria city limits on Tuesday, December 7th, 1976 it changed the town for many. Not only was John’s the third unsolved murder that year but his slaying was also especially brutal, the work of a depraved and heartless killer. The Victoria County Sheriff’s Department, who had jurisdiction for the murder, said they were conducting a comprehensive investigation. That investigation, however, went nowhere. When a recently released convict was arrested and charged for an attempted murder that happened a couple months before John Godfrey was killed, he became, according to some, the cops’ suspect number one. But is the guy called Sugar Bear really responsible? Part 2 of 2.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database, dnasolves.com.

The Savage Murder of John Godfrey in Victoria Part 1

John Godfrey had everything going for him. He was fresh out of high school, enrolled in college, and pursuing his passion as the newest and youngest member of local Victoria, Texas rock-n-roll band Southern Wind. But days before his 19th birthday, on December 4th, 1976, John headed to the south of town, a place known as “Under the Hill,” and disappeared. John’s family, bandmates, and many friends found his abandoned station wagon just south of that area the following day, but the 18-year-old was nowhere to be found. At least not yet.

The Mysterious Death or Disappearance of Texas Oilman Ed Baker Part 2

After the discovery of the burnt car that belonged to millionaire Houston oilman Ed Baker, speculation was abound. Though the medical examiner finally ruled that the body found inside was indeed Edward Gerald Baker’s, some folks didn’t buy the ruling. They insisted the oilman had faked his own death and skipped country to avoid the lawsuits against his company or worse – jail time. Harris County Sheriff’s Investigators, however, didn’t really buy that. Though they seemed to believe that Ed’s death was the result of an elaborately planned suicide, they couldn’t prove it and still had to leave their minds open to the theory that the man was killed as the result of a mob hit. To this day, exactly what happened to Ed Baker remains a mystery. Part 2 of 2.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database, dnasolves.com.

The Disappearance & Brutal Murder of D’Lisa Kelley Part 2

After leaving her Grandmother’s house to attend her best friend’s wake on a Friday in March of 2014, 24-year-old mother D’Lisa Kelley, who was expecting another child, vanished. Even considering the circumstances that made it crystal clear she was in incredible danger, Dallas’s 911 dispatch failed to act. It wasn’t until the next day police created a missing person’s report. The following Monday , Detectives with the Dallas Police Department’s missing persons unit finally began investigating. It was, perhaps, too late, however. On Friday, March 14th, 2014, a week after she disappeared, D’Lisa’s body was found in Oak Cliff.If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse or violence, please get help before it’s too late by calling the National Domestic Abuse Hotline at 800 799 SAFE or 800 799 7233.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database.

The Disappearance & Brutal Murder of D’Lisa Kelley Part 1

On March 7th, 2014, 24-year-old mother D’Lisa Kelley, who was expecting another child, left her Grandmother’s home on foot to attend her best friend’s wake. She didn’t have a ride but knew the Oak Cliff neighborhood well, so D’Lisa figured she’d run into someone willing to drive her. D’Lisa inadvertently called her sister about 40 minutes after leaving, and what her sister heard was disturbing. She could hear a male’s voice yelling at D’Lisa, her sister screaming, and what sounded like her being beaten. After a short text exchange, D’Lisa’s end went silent and she vanished.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database.

Christy Tower & Hillside Jane Doe: The Other February Slayings

Beginning in 1967, a series of murders in Fort Worth that had at least a few similarities began. Their obvious similarity: they all took place in the month of February. We’ve covered four of them on gone cold: Mildred May in 1967, Becky Martin in 1973, Carla Walker in 1974, and June Ward in 1977. The murders became known by some members of law enforcement, and certainly to the press, as the February Slayings. This episode is about the fifth in this series, the 1983 murder of Christy Tower...and another that was never mentioned alongside the others, the 1986 murder of Hillside Jane Doe. Could the man who raped and murdered Carla Walker be responsible for others? Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database.

Double Murder: The Slayings of Hattie & Vernon Stanley

By 1959, Vernon and Hattie Stanley were long settled into their empty nest in a quiet, middle class neighborhood in Fort Worth’s northside. Vernon, a veteran of World War I, had retired from working at the used car lot he owned, and the couple was enjoying their golden years. On June 10th of that year, however, Hattie and Vernon were brutally slain in their home, which had been meticulously ransacked. A couple suspects emerged, but none had the Fort Worth Police’s attention more than Lebert Everett Swaim, a War Veteran and pharmacist whose off-time activities included prowling and breaking and entering among other depraved acts. No matter how hard they tried, however, the cops couldn’t build a strong case against him. Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database.

The Story of Jolaine Hemmy and Pecos Jane Doe

The Story of Jolaine Hemmy and Pecos Jane DoeBack in August 2019, we released an episode telling the story of the death of a Jane Doe at the Roper’s Motel in Pecos, Texas in July of 1966. Not long before that, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) contacted the new police chief there, Lisa Tarango, and asked her to work with them to identify the unknown drowned girl. Chief Tarango began looking into the case, but police files had since gone missing. Upon discovering a different type of file, a new likeness of Pecos Jane Doe was made, which kicked off a series of events that led to the discovery of her identity, officially announced on January 19th, 2021. The effort was a collaborative one, consisting of help from the Pecos Police, NCMEC, Innovative Forensic Labs, Othram Incorporated, and crowd funding.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database.

The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 6: The Other Private Investigator

When Private Investigator Dan James came on the case in the mid-1990s, he was continuing work he’d already been doing in his spare time since Rachel Trlica, Renee Wilson, and Julie Moseley disappeared on December 23rd, 1974. When reviewing the report he sent to the Fort Worth Police, it’s sometimes difficult to know exactly what the PI was reporting. Perhaps some of it was information only the cops would comprehend. However, a few of the leads James dug up are interesting, particularly the individual whose house Renee’s father, Richard Wilson, headed to almost immediately upon discovering the girls were nowhere to be found.

After doing everything they knew to do and after coming to the conclusion that the Fort Worth Police were not, the families of 17-year-old Rachel Trlica, 14-year-old Renee Wilson, and 9-year-old Julie Moseley decided to get some outside help. They hired private investigator Jon Winter Swaim, a polarizing figure in the city who was known to get results, no matter what it took. After chasing down more leads than police, the private eye found the most promising one yet, or at least it looked that way, when human bones were found down in south Texas, in Brazoria County.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database.

In the days and weeks following the disappearances of 17-year-old Rachel Trlica, 14-year-old Renee Wilson, and 9-year-old Julie Moseley on December 24th, 1974, and after the arrival of the infamous letter, things continued to grow more complicated and confusing. Bad tips, terribly cruel prank calls, and strange sightings took up more valuable time than the Wilson’s, the Moseley’s, and the Arnold’s had. Perhaps a few things, however, can be gleaned from the newspaper reports and Fran Arnold’s notes, which kept at the families’ activities at least somewhat documented. Still, though, nothing was panning out at the time...and nothing, really, had panned out in the following decades.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database.

On December 24th, 1974, the day following the disappearances of 17-year-old Rachel Trlica, 14-year-old Renee Wilson, and 9-year-old Julie Moseley – Rachel’s husband received a letter in the mailbox. The letter claimed to be from Rachel and said that the missing girls had gone to Houston to, quote, “get away.” They’d be back in a week, it said. Contrary to what the police initially thought, no one in the families believed the young newlywed had written the note – let alone that the three girls who were so eager for the upcoming Holiday ran off and would miss it. The public got a hold of the letter decades later and speculation and rumor mounted. In 2017, a forensic handwriting expert weighed in with her professional opinion.

They had two destinations in mind. One was the local Army Navy surplus/discount store, where Rene would get some items out of layaway, and the other was Seminary South Shopping Center. They no doubt made it to the Army Navy, but they were never confirmed to be seen anywhere else. At a little after 4 PM, Rene’s folks began searching for the girls. Their efforts, however, were futile and Rachel, Rene, and Julie haven’t been seen since. The story is shrouded in mystery and has become woven into the fabric of Fort Worth’s history.

The Attempted Murder & Disappearance of Martha Martinez Maxwell

In April of 1987, authorities in Carter County, Oklahoma found a Watauga, Texas woman on the side of the highway barely clinging to life. She was bound with duct tape, severely beaten, and covered in the blood that had poured from the slit in her throat. The woman was Martha Martinez Maxwell. After doctors at Dallas’s Parkland Hospital saved her life, she dropped charges on the man who’d left her for dead 100 miles from home – her husband, Jeffrey Allan Maxwell. The man, too, manipulated Martha into reconciling with him. Five years later, Martha went missing under suspicious circumstances. And Jeffrey Allan Maxwell’s further crimes, at least some of them, landed him in prison for life 20 years later. The man is suspected, too, in other unsolved Texas disappearances and homicides.If you or anyone you know is experiencing domestic abuse and / or violence, please contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800 799 SAFE or 800 799 7233.

Mysteries of Boerne, Texas Part 2: The Deaths of Nichol, Alexa, and London & The Killing of Beth Hicks

In January of 2019, in far south Boerne, Texas, a Bexar County 911 dispatcher received a call. There’d been a suicide, the caller said. Three people – Nichol Olsen and her daughters Alexa and London – were shot to death in a home belonging to Nichol’s boyfriend. The deaths were later ruled a murder-suicide but as friends of Nichol Olsen began speaking out, that ruling became questionable. The Bexar County Sheriff agreed. Fifteen years prior to those deaths, in 2004, probation officer Beth Hicks was killed outside her home just beyond the Boerne city limits as she left for work – struck in the head with a blunt object. Though the probationers she supervised were scrutinized, over 100 of them, Kendall County Sheriff’s Officer could never identify a suspect.

At the end of July 2011, the small towns of Fannett and Hamshire, just southwest of Beaumont, Texas, became the center of an ongoing mystery. Sharon West, a 14-year-old girl who was at her Dad’s for the summer, vanished. For three months there was absolutely no trace of the teenager but at the end of October, Sharon’s remains were found not far from where she is last thought to have been. Her body was completely skeletonized and there were no tell-tale signs of foul play on her bones. The Jefferson County Medical Examiner struggled to rule on Sharon’s cause of death. Investigators for the Sheriff’s Department, too, were finding no clues as to what happened to Sharon West...and they’re no closer to finding answers today.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database.

Hub City Homicides Part 2: Marcella Valenzuela, Elizabeth Price, & Naomi Martin

The year 1976 was shaping up to be as violent and bloody as the previous year in Lubbock, Texas, beginning with the mysterious death of Marcella Valenzuela in January. Her death led investigators and newspaper reporters to a frenzied and paranoid theory: that a, quote, “gay sex-drug cult” had infiltrated the city. But when Elizabeth Price was brutally murdered in April, at least some detectives had sense knocked back into them. The depraved murder of Elizabeth mirrored, in many ways, the 1975 slaying of Debbie Sue Williamson. There were investigators, too, who thought the 1971 deadly attack and torture of Naomi Martin might also be connected.Check out Unjust & Unsolved with Maggie Freleng wherever you listen to podcasts.Submit your DNA data from a consumer testing company to Othram’s database.

Hub City Homicides Part 1: Vickie June Stokes & Deborah Sue Williamson

Throughout the 1970s, Lubbock Texas lived up the nickname “Hub City,” though not for the reasons they wanted. It was a hub for criminal activity. The city’s violent crime rate was and is high but a series of unsolved murders from the decade still haunt Lubbock to this day. These are the stories of two of the victims of brutal slayings that both occurred in the year 1975: Vickie June Stroud Stokes in March or early April of that year and Deborah Sue Agnew Williamson in August.

Death of a Family: The Slayings of Frank, Connie, & Dante

Though El Paso’s homicide rate lags significantly behind the national average, murders in the West Texas desert city can be dark and gruesome. Not many compare in sheer brutality and violence, however, to the August 1994 slayings of Francisco Santoni Thornhill, Maria Concepcion Villa, and three-year-old Dante Santoni Villa. The murders didn’t see much press, but residents of El Paso, particularly the Montwood area, were shaken by the savage killings; they became fearful and stricken with paranoia. Though a theory as to what happened was imagined by detectives, a clear motive and suspect were never developed.You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #JusticeForFrankConnieAndDante #ElPaso #ElPasoTX #ElPasoCountyTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #ColdCase

Carmen Croan Part 2: The Drifters

After months of investigating the August 1981 slaying of Carmen Croan, the Ector County Sheriff’s Office was frustrated, particularly investigator David Saunders. After the bizarre kidnapping of an Odessa man, though, a suspect – a good suspect – fell into the department’s lap. After investigating the man and collecting evidence against him quietly and without informing the press, District Attorney Mike Holmes was ready to ask a grand jury for an indictment in December of 81. They got their indictment but court appointed defense attorneys for the suspect fought the charges hard, collecting a celebrity forensic expert who’d testified at Ted Bundy’s trial and a rockstar psychologist who’d given police in Georgia a psych profile for the Atlanta Child Murderer. After a slew of postponements, the suspect in Carmen’s mutilation murder walked for that charge...and that was after another person of interest, a potential accomplice, was killed in a what was deemed a freak accident.For more information and updates on Carmen’s case, visit author KE Crosby’s page https://www.facebook.com/ViolatedJusticeforCarmenCheck out our sponsor this episode, The Logo Pop, at https://thelogopop.comYou can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #JusticeForCarmenCroan #JusticeForCarmen #Odessa #OdessaTX #EctorCountyTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #ColdCase

Carmen Croan Part 1: Not Your Everyday Murder

Ector County Sheriff’s Office investigator David Saunders called the August 1981 slaying of Carmen Croan “not your everyday murder.” Though the quote hardly described the brutality and sheer evil of the crime, the case sent chills to the hardened investigator’s core. He’d never seen anything like it, and it was hardly the first savage and explicitly violent death Odessa and Ector County had dealt with in the years leading up to it. The mutilation murder of Carmen was gruesome and macabre. The emotional and psychological ramifications investigators faced was immense. The twists and turns, too, were frustrating.For more information and updates on Carmen’s case, visit https://www.facebook.com/ViolatedJusticeforCarmenYou can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #JusticeForCarmenCroan #Odessa #OdessaTX #EctorCountyTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #ColdCase

The Executions of Tina Combs & Jimmy Wright

When Jimmy and Tina met online through a friend’s Facebook post, it was almost as if it were meant to be. The two had a lot in common, including connections through family to their home state of Indiana. One morning in June of 2015, Tina decided to make the trip from her home in Arlington, Texas to Jimmy’s house in Kyle, just south of Austin. The day should have been a good one, new beginnings for both Tina and Jimmy perhaps. Shortly after they ate breakfast at a Kyle restaurant just off the highway, however, Jimmy and Tina were killed in his home. Though two strong suspects in the double murder emerged, one thought to have a strong motive, the case remains unresolved.For premium and intelligent series and films, check out our sponsor this episode at acorn.tv You can support gone cold – texas true crime at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #JusticeForTinaCombs #JusticeForJimmyWright #JusticeForJimmyAndTina #Kyle #KyleTX #Austin #AustinTX #HaysCountyTX #TravisCountyTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #DoubleMurder #ColdCase

Death on the Highway: The Murder of Amanda Clairmont

In November of 2017, patrol officers from the small city of Corinth came across a vehicle parked in a vacant lot with the lights on. They approached the suspicious car and discovered the body of a woman, riddled with gunshot wounds. She was soon identified as Amanda Clairmont, a 21-year-old well-liked University of North Texas student. A motive for the young woman’s murder eluded investigators and so did evidence.

Joshua Davis Jr: Nowhere to be Found

It was unusually cold in New Braunfels, Texas on February 4th, 2011 and the icy roads were brushed lightly with snow. That evening, 18-month-old Joshua JayVaughn Davis Junior went missing from his home. A massive search effort was conducted but the little boy was never found. The New Braunfels Police, having come up with a theory as to what happened to Little Joshua, didn’t sway much in their investigative efforts to work other potential leads. Is it possible they missed one that was right in front of them the whole time?

The Mysterious & Suspicious Death of Dr. George Chronis

In May of 2018, after having problems with the caretaker of his Rains County, Texas ranch, 57-year-old George Chronis headed down from his home in suburban Chicago, Illinois to handle the situation. It wasn’t just a business trip though; the overworked doctor with multiple Sclerosis also sought a break from the stress of life as an obstetrician / gynecologist. He hadn’t been at the ranch for three years, so he was shocked to arrive and find that the bunkhouse there had been inhabited by someone unknown. After calling his wife and discussing the situation, the bunkhouse burned to the ground and George was found dead...but not from injuries that resulted from the fire. To this day, more than two years later, what happened to Dr. George Chronis remains a mystery.You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #JusticeForDoctorGeorgeChronis #RainsCountyTX #AlbaTX #EmoryTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #ColdCase

Shallow Grave: The Slaying of Helen Dawn Williams

In October 1993, Thurgood Marshall School of Law student Dawn Williams vanished without so much as a trace. Fellow students, friends, and family searched everywhere but no clues were found. Houston Police, too, failed to find anything at all. The following month, a crew cleaning trash from an area in rural Montgomery County found the 25-year-old women’s body buried in a shallow grave, partially unearthed by animals. Police, and especially Dawn’s father, had a good idea what happened to her and who did it, but evidence has eluded investigators for nearly 27 years.This episode features the song Free Ride (For Jerry) by the band The Light Workers.

The Murder of Lecia Ann McGee Part 2: The Suspect

A suspect finally emerged in the January 1978 slaying of seventeen-year-old Lecia Ann McGee in 2009 – more than 30 years later. DNA linked the man to Lecia’s brutal death, but the Tarrant County District Attorney declined to bring the case before a grand jury, siting insufficient evidence as the reason. Fort Worth Homicide Detectives disagreed. Was the man a suspect in the initial 1978 investigation, when he was just a teenager, or did detectives then make a an unforgivable mistake by disregarding him as such?You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #JusticeForLeciaMcGee #FortWorth #FortWorthTX #TarrantCountyTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #TrueCrimePodcast #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #ColdCase

The Murder of Lecia Ann McGee Part 1: Cold & Deadly Night

January 1978 was an unusually cold month in Fort Worth, Texas. Though the city would brag about falling murder rates that year, when it was all said and done, the year was just as deadly as many before it...and even more to come. One of the many homicides the city had seen in 1978 was the unthinkable killing of seventeen-year-old Lecia Ann McGee, a well-liked teenager who didn’t make enemies. Though the brutality of her killing seemed personal, that motive was highly unlikely, and the case was more or less cold from the moment her body was discovered. Decades would pass before a viable suspect emerged but evidence against him, the Tarrant County District Attorney said, was slim to none.

No Trace: The Disappearances of Pamela and Michael Mayfield

In January of 1985, siblings Michael and Pamela Mayfield were last seen getting into a vehicle willfully on their way home from school. The six-year-old and five-year-old, respectively, were never seen again. Efforts to locate the two children were relatively extensive. The Missing Children Milk Carton Program was new and gaining momentum fast, and the Mayfield Children were featured there, on nationwide news, and at the end of the third broadcast of the Adam Walsh television movie. No trace, however, of what happened to the two vibrant children was ever found.

The Crossroads Tavern Massacre & Other Port Lavaca Mysteries

Port Lavaca, Texas isn’t on the short list of the most well-known town in the Lone Star State. Many have never even heard of the bay city, in fact, particularly those out of state. Perhaps everyone should have, though. Several mysteries that remain unsolved have taken place there. Unfortunately, crimes such as the multiple slayings at the Crossroads Tavern in 1981 received little press outside Port Lavaca and, frankly, not a whole lot in the town’s press. The disappearances of Wanda Priddy and Kathie Collins received even less attention. One thing is clear: the city’s police, as well as Calhoun County, weren’t experienced enough to handle the crimes.Plus, an update on a story we told Summer 2019 – The Murder of Susan EadsYou can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #CrossroadsTavernMurders #JusticeForLennieYork #JusticeForLarkSaylor #JusticeForMarjorieMatocha #JusticeForWillardBaugh #WhereIsWandaPriddy #WhereIsKathieCollins #PortLavaca #PortLavacaTX #CalhounCountyTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #ColdCase #Missing #MissingPerson

Plainview Jane Doe & the Fraudulent Pathologist

When the frozen, headless body of a woman was found off a deserted road in rural Hale County just outside of Plainview in 1982, the case was cold from the start. Months later, when a skull was found in Maricopa County, Arizona, it was sent to Texas and determined to belong to the headless woman by pathologist Ralph Erdmann. Years later, however, Erdmann was found to have falsified countless autopsies all over West Texas and the Panhandle. Add to Erdmann’s ineptitude the false confession of Henry Lee Lucas, and justice for Plainview Jane Doe was seemingly hindered at every turn. Her name is still not known.

The Murder of Cheryl Ann Callaway at the Forum 303 Mall

One detective called the slaying of Cheryl Ann Callaway “the most vicious murder in Arlington’s history.” On January 30th, 1974, just months before she was to be married, 18-year-old Cheryl’s life was taken. The murder was brutal and unimaginable, and the killer, it seemed, came out of nowhere. No one who knew Cheryl could imagine who would have a reason to kill the young women; she had no enemies. Revelations in the case eventually came but either it was too late, evidence to support the new leads was scarce, or detectives working the case just didn’t buy it. After many lines of investigation, including inquiries into several well-known and lesser-known killers, Cheryl’s case went cold and remains unsolved.

The Memorial Day Murder of Stefanie Joy Hill

After Texas Tech University closed the 2000 school year, most of Stefanie Hill’s friends had gone on vacation or home to spend the summer with family. Stefanie stayed in Lubbock to work, however, and shortly after arriving home in the early morning hours of Monday, May 29th, Memorial Day, she was savagely murdered and set on fire in her own apartment. Because of the fire, there was little evidence left at the crime scene. Stefanie’s lifestyle was as low risk as could be imagined, so Lubbock detectives struggled coming up with anyone who had a motive to kill her.

In the early morning hours of March 26th, 2001, a neighbor of 26-year-old Megan Curl smelled something burning. When they investigated, they discovered a fire coming from Megan’s apartment, smoke billowing from the bedroom window. When firefighters extinguished the blaze, they found Megan Curl’s body badly burned, and deceased, on her bed. The nature of her death was gruesome, and the young woman had been burned after she died, presumably to destroy evidence. Though a suspect emerged fairly quickly, law enforcement was unable to collect evidence against him.

Far worse can be imagined that the death of an innocent child at the hands of a predator. In 2019, luckily, Salem Sabatka’s fate was not death, thanks to a swift response by both the Fort Worth Police and the public. In the summer of 1998 in the Rosemont suburb of Fort Worth, however, 8-year-old Edna Rodriguez met a terrible fate, after disappearing from her home in the middle of the night. Virtually no clues were left behind that provided a lead to her whereabouts and when her body was later found, the circumstances of the discovery were produced a new mystery. Edna was, by all accounts, an outgoing and playful child from a close family, in a tight-knit neighborhood.

In the twilight hours of Saturday, August 23rd, 1983, Officer LC Tribble was gunned down in his patrol vehicle outside his Farmers Branch, Texas apartment after dropping off medicine to his ill two-year-old son. Virtually no evidence of who murdered LC could be found on the scene and eyewitnesses’ descriptions of men fleeing provided little to no help. Though LC’s slaying was reviewed time and time again with fresh eyes, the case remained ice cold for 27 years until, in 2010, came a supposed break.

On November 11th, 1970, Veteran’s Day, the bloody body of Doris Lorene Rivers was found in her El Paso apartment by her sister and 5-year-old son. Though the police were able to identify a suspect early in the initial investigation, the District Attorney refused to indict the men due to lack of evidence. The case was buried in El Paso Police’s cold case files for 43 years until, in 2013, Doris’s granddaughter phoned the department for information on the case. A suspect was again identified...but justice, still, was not served.

The Baffling Disappearance of a Coed: Virginia Carpenter

On June 1st, 1948, Mary Virginia Carpenter stepped off Texas-Pacific train 31 in Denton and stepped into oblivion. “The world swallowed her up,” Texas Ranger Lewis Rigler later said of the 21-year-old’s disappearance. There was little to no trace of Virginia, that much is true, and the likely suspect’s involvement couldn’t be proven or even clearly ascertained. As the years went on, however, that suspect, the person who is thought to have seen her last, became an even more likely one. Still, nothing solid against him could ever be found.

The seemingly contradicting two worlds in which she lived, that of a coed and that of a topless dancer, made the Travis County Sheriff’s Department’s investigation unusual...and difficult. Though a serial rapist and a cop were scrutinized for Elizabeth’s slaying, a lack of evidence had prevented movement on the case, and it remains unsolved today.You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #JusticeForElizabethBettis #Austin #AustinTX #TravisCountyTX #Texas #TX #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #ColdCase

After Holly Palmer’s brutal beating death on November 27th, 1988, Granbury Police and Hood County Sheriff’s Department Officers began looking anywhere and everywhere for someone who might have wanted to kill the young woman. They felt it was someone who knew Holly well, someone she trusted not to hurt her, but authorities were perplexed. It seemed no one had anything against her. Except, perhaps, one individual whose name kept popping up.Please consider contributing to Holly Palmer’s fund to cover expenses for further testing and investigation that law enforcement can’t, at:https://www.gofundme.com/f/justice-for-holly-palmergranbury?utm_medium=email&utm_source=product&utm_campaign=p_email%2Bhtml_summary_donations&fbclid=IwAR2dLMrrv76q-Tj3_hzV4cx0ZAET7aNKdan4rbl-7p-OceLM-jHMcStiw54Link to our friend and contributor this episode, former LA County Homicide Detective turned crime novelist, Danny Smith’s books:https://www.amazon.com/Danny-R.-Smith/e/B075BJR42W%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt_scns_shareYou can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #JusticeForHollyPalmer #WhoKilledHolly #Granbury #GranburyTX #HoodCountyTX #Texas #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #ColdCase

Act of Rage: The Murder of Holly Palmer Part 1

Holly Palmer was a well-liked and much-admired resident of Granbury, Texas. At 23 years old, she had her entire life ahead of her and she was well on her way to living it. She was working while also pursuing creative interests that might prove in the future to be lucrative. Holly had a loving family and a lot of support, particularly from her close sisters, mother, and stepfather. Just after Thanksgiving of 1988, on November 27th, her life was taken, ripped away in an act of rage that shook Granbury to its core; Holly was found brutally beaten to death in the Greyhound bus station she managed there.

Death in the Panhandle: The Murder of Elsa Romo-Nickell

In July of 1969 in the small town of Panhandle, Texas, Elsa Romo-Nickell was found murdered on her bed as the morning alarm that was meant to wake her buzzed loudly. Leads were scarce as the crime scene was contaminated but a couple months later in nearby Skellytown, another murder which bore similarities took place. Though that lead and the few others police had seemed promising at first, including new information that investigators uncovered as late as 2017, Elsa’s murder is still unsolved.You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #JusticeForElsaRomoNickell #Panhandle #PanhandleTX #CarsonCountyTX #Texas #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #Unsolved #UnsolvedMurder #ColdCase

The Tragic Disappearance & Murder of Hailey Dunn

On December 27th, 2010, thirteen-year-old Hailey Darlene Dunn vanished. The media frenzy that ensued after her disappearance often seemed as if the girl herself had been forgotten. Billie Jean Dunn, Hailey’s mother, along with her live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, were immediately under the scrutinization of police and the press. Though a few solid reasons to suspect Adkins’ involvement in Hailey’s disappearance certainly existed, perhaps law enforcement’s efforts went a little too far when they hit Billie Jean, too...but, perhaps not. Almost three years after she disappeared, Hailey’s remains were found in a rural part of the county adjoining hers. No one has ever been brought to justice for her murder, and though they might have been on the right track, the media’s sensationalism was certainly exploitative.

Bloody Presents: The Disappearance of Chance & Dub and the Killing of Trish

Just after Christmas in 1993, the body of 38-year-old Latricia “Trish” White was found by her worried father who’d come to check on her. She’d been shot to death in her own bed. Her boyfriend, Lee “Dub” Wackerhagen, and his son, Chance Wackerhagen, were nowhere to be found. Police all but immediately came to the conclusion that Dub killed Trish in a rage and fled with Chance. For well over two decades, in fact, Dub was the only suspect. He and Chance were never seen again and when a Texas Ranger began re-investigating the case, he found that the original investigators might have suffered from tunnel vision in their efforts to solve the crimes.

Secret Hope: The Disappearance of Sharon “Sarah” McCully

When she dropped her husband back off at work after picking him up for lunch on Monday, December 10th, 1984, Sharon “Sarah” McCully had an errand to run. That evening, when her husband John returned home, Sarah was nowhere to be found. Two days later, her car was found. Exactly one week later, at practically the same time of day, another woman disappeared and was later found brutally murdered in her vehicle. She’d also been bound and raped. The similarities between the two cases were striking but there was one major difference: Sarah has never been seen again, alive or dead.

Bon Jovi & The Mysterious Death of Katherine Erin Korzilius

On August 7th, 1996, six-year-old Katherine Korzilius got out of her mother’s car to walk the rest of the way home. The walk was only about an eighth of a mile and when her daughter didn’t return, Nancy Korzilius was worried. She went looking for her daughter and found her lying unconscious in the road in the opposite direction from where she was walking. Katherine succumbed to her injuries later that night. Law enforcement and the Korzilius’s private investigator couldn’t make sense of her death; the case was cold from the very beginning. Katherine’s father, Paul, was the manager and close friend of musician Jon Bon Jovi, who later immortalized the tragedy in his song “August 7 4:15.”You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #WhatHappenedToKatherineKorzilius #AustinTX #TravisCountyTX #TX #Texas #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #Unsolved #UnsolvedMystery #ColdCase #BonJovi #JonBonJovi

Satanic Panic and the Murders of Sally McNelly & Shane Stewart

On July 4th, 1988, Sally McNelly and Shane Stewart disappeared sometime around midnight. Their bodies were found miles away from where they were last seen months later. Investigators had little to go on and, as was common at the time when no answers could be found, Satanism found its way into law enforcement’s theory. There was no evidence of devil worship or occult activities but the media, including the television show Unsolved Mysteries, jumped all over the chance at helping insert the societal phenomenon of Satanic Panic into Shane and Sally’s narrative. It’s likely part of the reason their case remains unsolved today.You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastFind us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using @gonecoldpodcast #JusticeForSallyAndShane #SanAngeloTX #TomGreenCountyTX #TX #Texas #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #Unsolved #ColdCase #UnsolvedMurder #SatanicPanic

Taken for Ransom: The Kidnapping of Kim Leggett

On October 9th, 1984, a mystery began in Mercedes, Texas, adding to the many others in the Rio Grande Valley. Twenty-one-year-old Kim Sue Leggett was kidnapped from her place of employment, Ross Cotton Gin. A phone call that took place literally minutes after she was taken and a ransom letter sent to Kim’s parents a few days later were virtually the only clues Mercedes Police, Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office investigators, the Texas Rangers, and the FBI had to work with. Kim was never seen alive again; her remains never found. Her kidnapping was cold from the beginning and remains so today.

Unintended Target: The Shooting Death of Marianne Wilkinson

On December 9th, 2007, sixty-seven-year-old Marianne Wilkinson was murdered by an assailant who shot her multiple times as she opened her front door. North Richland Hills Police Investigators were stumped; Neither Marianne nor her husband had enemies, no one who had a reason to want Marianne dead. When a neighbor called police and told them that she thought she knew the reason Marianne was slain, a strong, circumstantial theory arose. However, without evidence, investigators were never able to make an arrest.You can support gone cold – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast You can also find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter by using @gonecoldpodcast#JusticeForMarianneWilkinson #NorthRichlandHillsTX #NRHTX #FortWorthTX #TX #Texas #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #Unsolved #ColdCase #UnsolvedMurder

West Texas Boogie Men and the Forgotten

West Texas in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s was seeing more violent crime than ever; the ultimate violence, murder, was certainly no exception. Many cases were solved throughout the region, cases that seemed to have the full attention of the press and of county and city law enforcement agencies...but what about the crimes that were never solved...and that saw little to no media coverage at all?

The Odessa Full Moon Murders

From October 1968 to June 1971, five murders shook the residents of Odessa, Texas. Linda Cougot, Eula Miller, Ruth Maynard and Gloria Sue Greene in Odessa, and Nancy Mitchell in nearby Kermit. The deaths had the Odessa Police baffled. A writer for the Odessa American theorized that there was a madman on the loose who chose to perpetrate the slayings in close proximity to full moons. The police, however, likely didn’t buy that, but they did theorize that the murders were connected. After two separate men confessed and were convicted of two of the murders the uncertainty of who really killed the other three women remained...and still does to this day.You can support gone cold podcast – texas true crime at https://www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast.

The Orchard Apartment Murders and the Butcher of Houston

The first half of 1979 kept Houston Police’s homicide department busier than they’d ever been; the year had already broken records for the most violent crimes and murders the city had ever seen. The second half was no different with a series of murders taking place between the end of July and the first several days of October that were so gruesome, so violent in nature – two beheadings and two victims who were almost decapitated – that Houstonians were in fear and the police were scrambling to protect their citizens. No one was ever brought to justice for the murders of five individuals who would become synonymous with the name “The Orchard Apartment murders.” Were they connected?

The Killing of Kathy Page Part 2: Three Billboards and Civil Liability

When Kathy Page’s father erected three signs along Interstate 10 implicating his daughter’s husband in her 1991 killing, it was out of frustration resulting both from the Vidor Police’s failure to put together a case against their number one suspect and the suspect’s blatant falsehoods and odd behavior. Eventually, years after Kathy’s murder, her parents took Steve Page to civil court alleging that he was responsible. On their third attempt at holding him accountable the only way they could, a jury found Steve Page to be responsible for the murder, but Vidor Police were never able to get a grand jury to indict him on criminal charges.#JusticeForKathyPage #ThreeBillboards #Vidor #VidorTX #Beaumont #BeaumontTX #Texas #TrueCrime #TexasTrueCrime #Unsolved #ColdCase #UnsolvedMurder #StagedSpecial thanks to our good pal Erica at Southern Fried True Crime for her help with research and information.

The Abductions & Murders of Heidi Seeman & Erica Botello

The carefree Summer of 1990 in San Antonio, Texas ended in unimaginable tragedy for two families, the entire city, and, most of all, two innocent children. In the month of August, only 19 days apart, Heidi Seeman and Erica Botello disappeared. Heidi’s disappearance resulted in one of the biggest search efforts the State of Texas, if not the entire US, had ever seen. Not long after Erica Botello vanished, which can easily be viewed as being portrayed in the press as a side note to Heidi’s disappearance, both girls’ bodies were found, shattering the hope that they would be brought home safe and sound. Though charges were filed against three individuals in Erica’s murder and another individual was taken into custody pending charges in Heidi’s slaying, the perpetrators of these two senseless and depraved acts remains elusive to justice.

Hours later, the guests and staff were startled by the sounds of flailing slashes and screams for help at the motel’s pool.

He never arrived at the hospital and there were no clues as to the identity of the victim.

The Suspicious Death of Tamara Jean “Mousey” Holcknecht

Tamara Jean Holcknecht was known as “Mousey” by her friends and family, all who adored the funny, sweet, and talented young woman. Mousey went missing in late February of 2007, and though everyone thought she’d simply gone off the radar, which wasn’t uncommon for her, their worst fears would be realized a month later when two boys found her body facedown and partially submerged in a stock pond. Though the medical investigator ruled the death an accident, there is at least one major piece of forensic evidence that something major is wrong…and that evidence is indisputable. It’s not the only red flag, either. The “accidental” case remains open to this day, suggesting they know that there is indeed more to the story.You can join the Facebook group, Justice For Tamara J.

In the Summer of 2002, the national press was ablaze with stories of missing and murdered children; one case in particular held the attention span of the national media machine and many others fell through the cracks, receiving virtually no coverage. The kidnapping and murder of a 4-year-old Orange, Texas girl, Dannarriah Finley, on July 4th was one of those cases. Though police from multiple jurisdictions and the FBI worked the case hard, collecting an impressive amount of evidence, including DNA, Dannarriah’s killer continues to elude justice.You can support gone cold podcast – texas true crime by visiting https//:www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast.

The Murder of Susan Eads

(SOLVED 5/20) On Wednesday, August 31st, 1983 the nude body of Susan Lee Eads was discovered among the brush in a ditch on an empty lot at NASA Road One and Elam Street in Seabrook. Susan had been raped and strangled. The investigation went cold almost as soon as it began; there was little evidence and a man seen leaving behind Susan from a local bar the last time she was seen alive was a stranger to the establishment’s patrons. Four years later, Seabrook Police got a good lead, but it wasn’t to be. The arrest of a serial killer in 2003, Anthony Allen Shore – The Tourniquet Killer, got the department’s hopes up again but DNA excluded him. In 2018, police released recorded phone calls made to Susan’s mother not long after Susan’s death in hopes to generate new leads.

Candy Mora: The Killing That Haunts Harlingen

On January 8th, 1973, a worried friend of Candy Anne Fletcher-Mora entered her apartment in Harlingen, TX to find her baby daughter sound asleep in her crib but found Candy viciously murdered; she’d been slashed, stabbed, and strangled…her neck broken. Police were tight-lipped, more so than most departments at the time, but a violent rapist who committed a depraved act against another young woman 11 months after Candy’s slaying was surely suspected of her murder. Candy’s case, although reopened more than once, remains unsolved.You can support gone cold podcast – texas true crime by visiting https//:www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast.

City of Hate: Carolyn Montgomery…the Wrong One?

While the 1970s were a time of independence and fulfillment, they were also a time when many, especially women, lived in fear. Dallas, over a short time span from 1970 to 1971, was bombarded with a slew of slayings which the press dubbed the “Bizarre Lust Murders.” On August 8th, 1971, Carolyn Montgomery’s son awoke to find his Mother’s mutilated body under a blanket in their apartment’s living room.You can support gone cold podcast – texas true crime by visiting https//:www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast.

City of Hate: The Bizarre Lust Murders

Over a short time span in 1970 and 1971, a slew of murders occurred in Dallas, Texas in which the press dubbed the “Bizarre Lust Murders.” Most of the crimes were considered to be sexually motivated, though sexual assault didn’t necessarily occur, and there were striking similarities shared across many. Even though police were able to solve some, closure for others remained elusive…and it wasn’t because there was a shortage of suspects.

City of Hate: The Brutal Slaying of Beverly Jean Hope

On Wednesday, October 28th, 1970, Beverly Jean Hope, known as Jean to most, was supposed to pick up a friend for a lunch date, but never arrived. Jean’s husband was sent to check on her and upon his arrival at their home, he discovered the body of his wife in a pool of blood; she’d been violently bludgeoned to death. The investigation into Jean’s murder took some twists and turns – Dallas City and Dallas County had seen a slew of particularly gruesome murders before and since - and law enforcement were ultimately unable to tie anyone to her slaying.

The Poisoning of Patsy Wright, Part Two: Up in Flames

Patricia Bolton Wright’s death on October 23nd, 1987, launched an investigation that uncovered a complicated and convoluted list of potential suspects, motives, missing pertinent documents, and even other deaths that had to be checked out for elimination or connections. When it was all said and done, the potential motive for one person of interest was striking and when considering a young man who tried to steal something particularly interesting that belonged to the museum and was later implicated in another crime that was similar to circumstances surrounding Patsy’s death, the case becomes even blurrier.

The Poisoning of Patsy Wright, Part One: Something’s Not Right

Patricia Bolton Wright had everything going for her; the Wax Museum of the Southwest, her business in Grand Prairie, was a tourist draw and a local staple, she’d just purchased a ranch, and she was living her dream as a champion horse-cutting rider. On October 23nd, 1987, the healthy, wealthy, and happy 43-year-old died of mysterious circumstances. The Arlington police knew something wasn’t right, however, and their investigation quickly led to what killed her: strychnine poisoning.You can support gone cold podcast – texas true crime by visiting https//:www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast.

On November 15th, 1971, best friends Debbie Ackerman and Maria Johnson went missing after reportedly hitchhiking to Houston. Two days later, their bodies were found in Turner’s Bayou outside of Texas City. Their murders were two of the many confessed to by convicted murderer Edward Harold Bell, the murders he referred to as “The Eleven Who Went to Heaven.” Although countless articles and a television docuseries go out of their way to make a case for Bell’s guilt, there are reasons to doubt the confessions he’d later recant.

“Put a Bullet in Him”: The Killing of Christopher Tiensch

On September 19th, 2008, an email was sent from one executive of Plus SMS to another, relaying the message, “put a bullet in…Chris,” referring to the company’s then-CEO, Christopher Robert Tiensch. The company was under investigation and was in trouble due to the deception of shareholders and self-inflation of stocks, and Christopher Tiensch had blown the whistle on the entire thing.

The Sun Family Assassinations

After not hearing from their prized employee for almost an entire work week, Cameron International contacted law enforcement and asked that they perform a welfare check at Maoye Sun’s home. They did at 7 PM on Thursday January 30th 2014, and when there was no answer at the door, police found that there were signs of forced entry at the Sun home’s back door. They entered the house and made a grisly discovery; both Maoye and his wife, Mei Xie, were found on their bed deceased. Detectives were even more appalled, though, when they that discovered the couple’s children, 9-year-old Timothy and 7-year-old Titus, also laid dead on their beds. The entire Sun Family had been slain, each shot in the head. Their murder remains unsolved to this day.

Murder of the Paris Hermit, Auvord Bevans Braithwaite Jones

January 24th, 1963 was the last time the residents of Paris, Texas would see the eccentric and mysterious hermit, Auvord Bevans Braithwaite Jones. Not only had Auvord gained the respect and adoration of the town, he was highly intelligent and immensely well-read. While there is no actual proof that the man had a secret stash of money in a shack on the property he owned, there was plenty of talk of a hidden fortune there. Other facts contradict the notion but police still believe that Auvord was murdered for that very reason. His violent demise angered the community, stumped police, and began a mystery that remains unresolved to this day – 56 years later.You can support gone cold podcast – texas true crime by visiting https//:www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast.

The Killing Fields of Montgomery County

Between 1980 and 1983, the slayings of five young women baffled Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Investigators. Similarities between a few would have police theorizing a connection. The most striking and grisly commonality shared among three of the victims was the fact that when they were found, the victims were ablaze. Another unfortunate and investigation-stifling commonality between four of the five victims was a serial-confessor sometimes called “The One-Eyed Drifter.” The newscast audio heard this episode is from the NBC5/KXAS Television News Archive at the University of North Texas Special Collections.

Gary & Stephanie Gillette, Part Four: Fallout

For family members of the victims of unsolved homicide cases, day to day reality is different. They spend considerable amount of time trying to make sense of exactly what happened and why. It sometimes consumes them, continually lurking in the mind of these victims’ loved ones.The lack of justice is nagging; pondering whether the perpetrator is alive or dead and the possibly free life they lived after taking a life, or lives, as they struggle their entire lives to pick up the pieces and move on is a trying existence. For those of us who haven’t experienced this, there is no way to fathom the emotional repercussions that these individuals struggle with as a result of their loved ones’ unresolved deaths…We can empathize, sure, but the only way we can attempt to understand what these family members face, usually daily, is to hear their stories……to listen to their voices.You can support gone cold podcast – texas true crime by visiting https//:www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast.

Debra Jackson (Orange Socks), Sandra Mae Dubbs, & The Bloody Route

“It was just a convenient place to dump the bodies. There is just a hell of a lot of sin that goes up and down that highway” - Williamson County Sheriff Jim Boutwell, referring to Interstate 35 in 1981.From Oklahoma City to San Marcos, Texas, there is a 400 mile stretch of I-35 where multiple homicides occurred, or bodies were discarded, from the years 1976 to 1981. Twenty-one homicide victims. Few arrests. And several victims remain unidentified to this day. It’s unlikely to law enforcement that all these depraved acts were committed by a single individual, especially considering the distance involved; that makes it likely, then, that there were several individuals taking advantage of opportunity and who left an unbelievable count of slain victims in such a short period.To some law enforcements officials, the route became referred to as “the Bloody Route.”You can support gone cold podcast – texas true crime by visiting https//:www.patreon.com/gonecoldpodcastYou can also find us on Facebook and Twitter by using @gonecoldpodcast#I35 #orangesocks #JaneDoe #debrajackson #abilene #1977

Margaret & William Patterson, Part Three: Indiscretions

El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Investigators didn’t necessarily uncover any tangible evidence in the 1957 disappearances of Margaret and William Patterson but circumstantial evidence, and scenarios that this evidence allows, seems endless. They found some things about William’s personal life that they couldn’t ignore…things that began painting a different picture of the couple than what associates and employees of the Patterson’s originally let on to. Obviously, though, even after shocking accusations in the 1980s and a witness coming forward even later than that, police couldn’t find the pieces that allow for a clear theory as to what happened to Margaret and William.

Margaret & William Patterson, Part Two: Extended Vacation

When the investigation of the 1957 disappearances of Margaret and William Patterson finally began months after the couple was last seen, it was obvious from the get-go that the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office had lost access to evidence and information that would have proved invaluable. Instead, investigators were faced with trying to fit pieces together that didn’t necessarily belong to the same puzzle. The press was happily along for the sensational and highly speculative ride. Business associates of the Patterson’s seemed to be creating their own narrative as well, one that largely hung on the loose hinges of a poor explanation: that William and Margaret had taken an extended vacation and didn’t wish to disclose their whereabouts.

Suzie Mages, Part One: Denton’s Lost Innocence

In 1977, a crime took place in Denton, Texas that shook the community to its core; though you’d hardly call Denton “uneventful,” it was a place where residents and college students felt safe and free. Suzanne Marie Mages was a twelve-year-old girl who was adored by all who met her and due to the proximity of her mother’s restaurant to lively Fry Street, many were touched by the continuously happy and smiling early adolescent. In September of that year, however, Suzie vanished, leaving little clues to her whereabouts or the identity of the man she was last seen talking to. Suzie wouldn’t be seen alive again. This is the story of who Suzie was, what happened the day she disappeared, and how it affected Denton.

Nicole Irene Garcia

Because it isn’t breaking any laws to disappear when you’re eighteen or older, most law enforcement agencies in the US deem adult missing persons cases a relatively low priority. There are Amber Alerts for missing children and Silver Alerts for the Elderly, luckily, but unfortunately there isn’t much immediate and wide-reaching help for adults who vanish. December 23rd, 2016 was the last time Nicole Garcia’s family heard from her and there are circumstances that suggest that she may not have left of her own free will; even if she did, these circumstances suggest that she still may be in danger.
