The Main Line Murders (Part Three: Polaroid)

Following the arrest of Bill Bradfield in April of 1983, his fate began to look grim.In the ensuing trial, prosecutors would manage to successfully link Bradfield to Susan Reinert's death, as well as at least one other "unnamed co-conspirator" (who many at the time believed to be Bradfield's longtime associate, Jay Smith). Over the next several years, this story would continue to play out, providing answers to some of the overarching questions that had been haunting those in the Main Line region of Pennsylvania, while ignoring the others, which remain unanswered to this day...Part 3/3 Episode hosted, produced, and research/writing by Micheal WhelanOriginal music created by Micheal Whelan through Amper MusicTheme music created and composed by Ailsa TravesProducers: Maggyjames, Roberta Janson, Ben Krokum, Peggy Belarde, Quil Carter, Laura Hannan, Victoria Reid, Gabriella Bromley, Damion Moore, Amy Hampton, Steven Wilson, Scott Meesey, Marie Vanglund, Scott Patzold, Astrid Kneier, Lori Rodriguez, Aimee McGregor, Danny Williams, Sydney Scotton, Sara Moscaritolo, Sue Kirk, Thomas Ahearn, Seth Morgan, Marion Welsh, Patrick Laakso, Kelly Jo Hapgood, Alyssa Lawton, Meadow Landry, Rebecca Miller, Tatum Bautista, gravityheadzero, Erin Pyles, Jo Wong, Teunia Elzinga, Consuelo Moreno, Travis Scsepko, Jacinda B., and Jared MidwoodLearn more about this podcast at http://unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to https://www.patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron or Producer

The Main Line Murders (Part Two: Jay & Bill)

In the years after Susan Reinert's body was discovered, investigators would struggle to latch on to available leads. Early on, investigators had begun to probe the backstories of two men - Jay Smith and Bill Bradfield - but had no concrete evidence linking them to the case. Both men had shady pasts, and undeniable links to the victim (as well as to each other), but were seemingly beyond reproach. Over the next several years, a delicate game of cat-and-mouse would be played throughout the court system. But what started out as a civil suit between Bradfield and Susan Reinert's loved ones would slowly morph into a full-on criminal investigation...

The Main Line Murders (Part One: Susan, Karen & Michael)

On the morning of June 25th, 1979, an anonymous caller would alert police to the discovery of a female body in Swatara Township, Pennsylvania.The nude body of the victim had been found in the trunk of her own car, missing almost all of her personal belongings. More importantly, there seemed to be no trace of the woman's two children near the crime scene, who had gone missing with her just days prior. Over the next several months, investigators would attempt to retrace this final weeks of this woman's life. What they found would surprise them, and lead to one of the most bizarre investigations in Pennsylvania state history...

It was here that he would kill close to a dozen women over the next year, before moving on to other cities in the region.In the decade since, investigators have speculated that this violent individual may have as many as 32 victims - spanning hundreds of kilometers through central Russia - but they are no closer to bringing him to justice, despite them having footage of the killer in action...

Henry Every

The Golden Age of Piracy - which spanned from the 1650s through the 1730s - would give rise to many notorious figures.Among them was an individual who isn't well-known today, but whose impact upon the world remains just as large (if not greater than the rest). He was one of the first pirates to achieve international notoriety, eventually becoming the first known global fugitive and inspiring a worldwide manhunt.He was a man who embraced the savage world of piracy, earning himself the reputation of being the "King of Pirates"; who managed to escape with not only his riches but, more importantly, his life...

The Austin Yogurt Shop Murders (Part Three: Guilt)

On October 6th, 1999, police in Austin announced the arrest of four suspects in the area's most high-profile cold case. Maurice Pierce and Forrest Welborn were two young men that had been suspected of involvement back in 1991, while Michael Scott and Robert Springsteen - their friends at the time - had been with them on the weekend of the murders. Now in their mid-20's, these four were alleged to have murdered four teenage girls in a yogurt shop years prior, and were subsequently charged with their deaths. Over the next several years, a complicated story would begin to play out in the Texas court system, where anyone's guilt was far from assured. Eventually, the state's case would begin to fall apart under pressure, leading us to the present day...Part 3/3Episode hosted, produced, and research/writing by Micheal WhelanOriginal music created by Micheal Whelan through Amper MusicTheme music created and composed by Ailsa TravesProducers: Maggyjames, Roberta Janson, Ben Krokum, Quil Carter, Peggy Belarde, Laura Hannan, Damion Moore, Amy Hampton, Scott Meesey, Steven Wilson, Scott Patzold, Marie Vanglund, Astrid Kneier, Lori Rodriguez, Victoria Reid, Gabriella Bromley, Jessica Yount, Aimee McGregor, Danny Williams, Sue Kirk, Sara Moscaritolo, Thomas Ahearn, Sydney Scotton, Marion Welsh, Seth Morgan, Alyssa Lawton, Kelly Jo Hapgood, Patrick Laakso, Meadow Landry, Rebecca Miller, Tatum Bautista, and Michelle GuessLearn more about this podcast at http://unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to https://www.patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron or ProducerThis episode is brought to you by Caliper CBD, who are offering Unresolved listeners a 20% discount on their first order.

The Austin Yogurt Shop Murders (Part Two: Confidence)

"On December 6th, 1991, we - as a city - lost our innocence. Today, we regain our confidence."Those were the words spoken by Austin's mayor Kirk Watson, at a press conference held in October of 1999. In the nearly eight years since four teenage girls had been killed inside of a yogurt shop, the city had rallied behind law enforcement in their desperate pursuit of answers. Now, it appeared like they finally had them. However, the buildup to this announcement was much more complicated than met the eye. Investigators had come and gone, suspects had vanished nearly as quickly as they arrived, and the answers provided by police nearly a decade later were far less than a sure thing...

The Family Murders (Part Two: The Family)

As the families of five young men mourned, investigators began to circle around their top suspect, Bevan Spencer von Einem. From the outside looking in, von Einem was incredibly average: a middle-aged accountant for a mid-level supplies company, who lived at home with his mother and regularly endeared himself to her older friends. But underneath the surface, a monster lingered, and police quickly tagged von Einem as the culprit in the latest of the five murders. In the decades since, though, the other four crimes have gone non-prosecuted. Many believe that von Einem did not act alone in the murder that he was convicted of, and may have had help from some of the area's rich and powerful: individuals that have come to be known as "The Family"...Part two of twoI originally covered this story back in 2017.

The Family Murders (Part One: The Murders)

Between 1979 and 1983, a series of heinous murders shocked Adelaide. The victims were all young men, who had gone missing in or near the northern section of town. The victims ranged in age from 14 to 25, and most were found to have suffered brutal violence, sexual assaults, and/or body mutilation before their death. Some showed signs of prolonged captivity, while death came quick to others.These were connections that were hard to overlook, as police began to theorize that a single offender (or, rather, a group of offenders) had been behind all of these crimes...Part one of twoI originally covered this story back in 2017.

Olivia Thorndike

Throughout 2019, bizarre classified ads started to appear in the Virginia-based Rappahannock Record, which were centered around a cold case four decades in the making.Olivia Thorndike had been a 24-year-old young woman living in Henrico County, whose life came to a sudden and tragic end in November of 1981. While detectives and prosecutors had their suspicions about a couple of men in Olivia's orbit, they were never able to build a convincing case against either. Nearly forty years later, Olivia's case remains unsolved, but some people continue to search for justice (those that knew Olivia, and those that never had the chance). Tragically, that means that there's not a lot of information out there about Olivia, but I've been able to learn a lot about the two violent men that revolved around her in the weeks and months before her death...

"Grave Robbing for Morons"

For years, sleuths have tried to figure out the secrets behind a bizarre home movie. The video - which was eventually titled "Grave Robbing for Morons" and released as a part of a longer compilation - shows a young man speaking to his friend(s) behind the camera. He holds a human skull throughout and regales with his grave-robbing tips and tricks. Unlike the young man's advice, however, the skull appears to be legitimate. Many question the veracity of the young man's claims, and doubt his advice (which borders on cartoonish at times). However, no one has been able to learn the truth about the video itself, nor the many claims and promises that are made throughout...

The I-65 Killer (Part Two: The Bearded Man)

Throughout the early 1990's, investigators with the Indiana State Police attempted to solve the Days Inn Murders.Unbeknownst to investigators at the time, the 1989 murders of 24-year-old Peggy Gill and 34-year-old Jeanne Gilbert were just the tip of the iceberg when it came to this unknown offender. A rash of other crimes throughout the area - ranging as far south as Kentucky and as far north as Minnesota - would later be linked to the same individual. But that came many years after this crime spree came to an end, when DNA testing had become commonplace. By the time investigators figured out how extensive this man's crime spree had been, it was already too late...Part 2/2Special thanks to Damion Moore (American Crime Journal) for sharing his extensive research in this case with me; if you want to learn more, please check out his website at https://mytruecrime.comEpisode hosted, produced, and additional research/writing by Micheal WhelanOriginal music created by Micheal Whelan through Amper MusicTheme music created and composed by Ailsa TravesProducers: Maggyjames, Ben Krokum, Roberta Janson, Quil Carter, Peggy Belarde, Laura Hannan, Katherine Vatalaro, Damion Moore, Astrid Kneier, Amy Hampton, Emily McMehen, Scott Meesey, Steven Wilson, Scott Patzold, Marie Vanglund, Lori Rodriguez, Jessica Yount, Aimee McGregor, Danny Williams, Sue Kirk, Sara Moscaritolo, Thomas Ahearn, Victoria Reid, Marion Welsh, Seth Morgan, Alyssa Lawton, Kelly Jo Hapgood, Patrick Ari Ekeheien Laakso, Sydney Scotton, Meadow Landry, and Rebecca MillerLearn more about this podcast at http://unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to https://www.patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron or ProducerThis episode is sponsored by Harry's, which is offering listeners of Unresolved $5 off of a trial set, which includes a 5-blade razor, a weighted handle, foaming shave gel w/aloe, and a travel cover.

The I-65 Killer (Part One: The Days Inn Murders)

On March 3rd, 1989, two women were found to have been murdered 50 miles away from one another. 24-year-old Peggy Gill & 34-year-old Jeanne Gilbert were each living separate lives in Merrillville and Rensselaer, Indiana (respectively), and neither seemed to have an inkling of the other's existence.

Kimberly Riley & Jeremy Britt-Bayinthavong

17 years ago, two lives were lost in a tragic holiday shooting in Tacoma, Washington. On November 28th, 2002, the paths of 19-year-old Kimberly Riley and 5-year-old Jeremy Britt-Bayinthavong would converge at a house in Tacoma's South End.

The Lane Bryant Shooting

In 2008, an unknown gunman would commit one of the few unsolved mass shootings in U.S. history. February 2nd of that year was a cold and blustery day in the region of Tinley Park, Illinois. That morning, two Lane Bryant employees and four customers would be taken captive by an armed gunman just after the store opened. The gunman, who posed as a delivery man, would loiter in the store for upwards of 40 minutes, before shooting the six female hostages and making off with a little more than $200. Despite the involvement of national and international law enforcement agencies, the killer's identity - and motives - remain a mystery to this day.

Rodney Marks

A mysterious death at the South Pole would spark a nearly decade-long international investigation.Rodney Marks was a 32-year-old astrophysicist, who worked at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. There, he had been working on a project to help map the stars, and not only did he take great pride and enjoyment in his work, but he also enjoyed the isolated culture down at the South Pole - where he would live for months at a time.On May 11th, 2000, Rodney began to complain of illness. Over the next 36 hours, his symptoms would progress to the point of no return, and the following evening, he would pass away due to total heart failure. Because the South Pole was so isolated, an autopsy could not be performed until months later. But when his remains were examined by a coroner later that year, the results were shocking...

The Keddie Murders

In April of 1981, a violent crime would tear apart a quiet town in northern California.Keddie is a small town in the Sierra Nevada mountains, located roughly halfway between Redding and Reno. Originally established as a stop along the railroad, the area was in the middle of a total transition when the Sharp family moved there in the latter half of 1980. On the morning of April 11th, 1981, 14-year-old Sheila Sharp was returning from a neighbor's house following a sleepover. That was when she discovered the gruesome crime scene that had been left behind... and the vile mystery that would haunt her (and the rest of Keddie) for the next four decades...

Angela Brooks & Nancy Cushman

In the early morning hours of November 25th, 2010, the bodies of two teenage girls would be found in an abandoned lot in Augusta, Georgia. 19-year-old Angela Brooks and 17-year-old Nancy Cushman had become fast friends, growing incredibly close through 2010. While they both lived a few miles north (up in South Carolina), they had close ties to Augusta and its surrounding area. The discovery of the teenage girls' bodies early on Thanksgiving morning prompted a widespread canvas and high-profile investigation, but public interest would quickly fade. Meanwhile, a suspicious young man - with personal ties to both victims and a checkered criminal history - would find himself at the center of this unfolding story...

Spring-Heeled Jack

Through the latter half of the 1830's, an urban legend began to take shape on the rooftops and in the foggy alleyways of London.First came rumors of an entity named "Steel Jack," who assaulted people (primarily women) in the dark of night. Over time, though, the rumors began to evolve, with the shadowy figure assaulting men and women alike throughout all of England, and engaging in physical feats deemed inhuman. Decades later, the myth of "Spring-Heeled Jack" continued to live on, with the entity making appearances at-random. Skeptics remain assured that this bogeyman was a total fabrication, while others theorize that the rumors evolved from a place of truth...

The Shadow Brokers (Part Two: Execute)

The enigmatic Shadow Brokers, who seemingly disappeared in January of 2017, would break their silence just three months later.Following the destruction of a Syrian airbase in April 2017, the Shadow Brokers returned to continue their campaign of cyber-terror. They lashed out at President Trump (and others) in deranged posts online, and began to leak more exploits and tools allegedly stolen from the NSA's most secretive units. This time, however, the intelligence they leaked would go on to have devastating effects in the real world. Many of these exploits would go on to be utilized by cyber-criminal and hackers, and the chaos they created would cost billions of dollars in recovery efforts all around the globe...

The Shadow Brokers (Part One: Auction)

In August of 2016, a mysterious hacker collective began releasing files and folders stolen directly from the NSA.Many of the programs this person or group released appeared to be legitimate cyber-weapons, which had been developed by U.S. intelligence. Despite the audaciousness of their posts - which became more immature and unhinged as time went on - the files they released seemed to have come directly from an NSA server. A leak of this magnitude had never been seen before, and the cyber-intel community struggled to stop the bleeding. But over the next several months, the Shadow Brokers would continue to wage a one-sided campaign against their sworn enemy: a secretive branch of the NSA nicknamed the "Equation Group"...

West Mesa Bone Collector (Part Three: 118th Street Homicides)

In the decade since eleven bodies were found in Albuquerque, a task force has worked to identify the mysterious West Mesa Bone Collector.The 118th Street Task Force is a combination of officers from Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, and the FBI. Together, they have worked exhaustively to identify and apprehend the unknown killer of eleven women, who murdered and buried them over a roughly two-year period between 2003 and 2005. Over the past ten years, detectives have thoroughly investigated numerous suspects (including two that are still suspected of involvement today), looked into thousands of tips, and have even tentatively tied other missing women to the same crime spree. Yet, despite their best intentions, police have been unable to close the case dubbed the "118th Street Homicides."

West Mesa Bone Collector (Part Two: The War Zone)

Through 2009, police would continue to unearth a mass grave along the western edge of Albuquerque. Following the discovery of eleven female bodies, investigators set out to identify the remains. The first four victims - Victoria Chavez, Michelle Valdez, Cinnamon Elks, and Julie Nieto - would be identified within the first month or so. They were all young women that had lived in the region and had gone missing between 2004 and 2005 (who had prior histories of sex work and drug use). However, the remaining seven victims would be much harder to ID. It took several months for investigators to piece together the details of these women's tragic lives, but the exact circumstances of their disappearances/murders would be hard to grasp. Years later, police continue to have many questions about these women, and who had targeted them...

On February 2nd, 2009, a woman walking her dog would stumble upon the largest crime scene in Albuquerque history.In the years prior, this once-desolate corner of ABQ had been ground zero for rapid expansion. Housing developments had been popping up left and right, but the 2008 recession caused a vast amount of land to remain undeveloped: in particular, a roughly 100-acre lot located just west of 118th Street. While out on an evening stroll, a woman's dog would unearth a human bone. Before long, police had begun excavating what would be the largest crime scene in Albuquerque history. Within a month, they had identified four of the victims (all were sex workers that had gone missing years prior) but several more remained unidentified... as did their collective killer...

Larry Chism

In July of 1974, a young college student from Memphis State University was sentenced to 40 years in state prison for his involvement in an illegal narcotics ring. Larry Chism was a bright, unassuming young man who was nearing his graduation from law school when he was arrested and thrown into prison... a sentence that many assumed would consume a large chunk of his life. However, Larry had other plans. This sentence was merely a setback for him. Between September and December of 1978, Larry would cook up two separate escape attempts: one from state prison, and another from a county jail (as he await sentencing). In the 40+ years since, federal investigators have nearly caught up to Chism on multiple occasions, but he has managed to elude them at each turn. He has since become the longest-lasting fugitive on the US Marshals Most Wanted list... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan Special thanks to Tim Fraley with the USMS, as well as his associates Victor, Adrian, and Rachael.

Judy Weichert

On the morning of July 28th, 1984, Judy Weichert set off on a jog, unaware that it would be her last.Judy, a 33-year-old Oklahoma native, had been married to her husband for less than a year. The two were happy together, and seemed to have built a nice life for themselves in OKC. However, on this random Saturday morning, it would all fall apart. While out on her jog, Judy would be attacked by a vicious stranger. After being raped and stabbed numerous times, Judy was left for dead... yet she would cling to life long enough to tell a witness a few details about the man that had killed her. Police would link her case to another nearby, but more than 35 years later, Judy's case remains unsolved. Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan Special thanks to Rachael Smith and Mandi Newland Davis, who were kind enough to chat with me about Judy's still-unsolved case.

Having become homesick, the following Spring she made the decision to move back to Oklahoma and attend school there, in order to be closer to her friends and family. It was a decision that her friends and family welcomed at the time, as it meant that she would be a constant presence in their lives once again.Unfortunately, it was this decision - to move back home - which put this young woman in the sights of a killer. Close to fifteen years after her violent death, her loved ones - primarily her mother - continue to fight for justice, as her killer has never been identified, and her case remains as unsolved today as it was back in the Fall of 2004...Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan Special thanks to Dr. Maggie Zingman (Brittany's mother) for speaking to me, and an additional thank you to Lindsay Schraad for getting us in-touch.

The Burrowing Burglars

On the morning of June 9th, 1986, employees at Hollywood's First Interstate Bank showed up for work, preparing for the long week ahead. However, they would discover that the bank's vault had been looted - not only of $172,000 cash, but dozens of security deposit boxes. Whoever the culprits had been, they had burrowed through 100 feet of soil from a nearby sewer drain, and had drilled their way into the bank vault. Miraculously, they had done this without attracting any attention. More than a year would pass with no activity from these bandits, until they struck again a little over a year later, in the same region. Then, they would come close to pulling off what investigator called the "crime of the century." However, to this day, they remain complete enigmas.Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at http://unresolved.me/ If you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to https://www.patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a PatronMusic CreditsMystery Mammal - "Mo Mo Modem"ROZKOL - "No More Truth"ROZKOL - "Roquentin"Forlon - "Roembden Crater"Mystery Mammal - "Greenhorn"

The Daytona Beach Killer

Between December of 2005 and December of 2007, a serial killer terrorized sex workers in Daytona Beach, Florida. 45-year old LaQuetta Gunther was the first to be targeted, falling prey to this unknown individual on Christmas Eve 2005. 34-year old Julie Green would follow just a few weeks later - on January 13th, 2006 - and the killer would strike again a month later: killing 35-year old Iwana Patton at some point in February. Nearly two years would pass, in which the Daytona Beach Police Department urgently tried to find the killer. Unfortunately, he would surface once more in December of 2007 to murder 30-year old Stacey Gage, before disappearing once and for all. Police believe that the suspect has since moved on from the region, but a cavalcade of suspects and theories continue to haunt those affected by the case...

Robert Levinson

For more than two decades, Robert Levinson served as a law enforcement agent specializing in money laundering and other financial crimes. Originally a member of the DEA, Levinson took his talents to the FBI, where he developed a reputation as a man who could develop informants like no other.In 1998, Levinson retired to chase money in the private sector, but within a decade was right back in the thick of things. Recruited by some former colleagues in the CIA, Levinson was brought in to do what he did best: make connections and harvest information. Approaching the typical age of retirement, Levinson finally had his dream job. He had virtually no rules, and could act as his own boss. However, he soon set his sights on the largest target of his professional career: a potential informant in Iran - the "black hole" of American intelligence. Unfortunately, this would prove too much of a challenge for Levinson, and he has been missing for more than a decade...

Bardstown - Revisited (Part Five: Daniel Cahoe)

From 2013 to 2016, a series of high-profile crimes shook the region of Bardstown, Kentucky. But predating all of them was a mysterious murder. Daniel Cahoe was a 34-year old father, who was known to live as a bit of a drifter. Kindhearted and simple-minded, Daniel was known for his helpful spirit and his love of the outdoors. On January 5th, 2012, Daniel's remains were found in a barn out in rural Spencer County. Police and loved ones had no idea how Daniel had gotten out there - or why he had done so - but his death has left investigators bewildered in the years since...

Bardstown - Revisited (Part Three: Crystal Rogers)

On July 3rd, 2015, Crystal Rogers was last seen by anyone. She had been planning to spend the evening with her boyfriend, Brooks Houck, and had excitingly told a friend about finally enjoying a child-free night. Crystal, a mother of five, had been dating Brooks for a few years. The two had one child together (an infant son named Eli), and even though their relationship wasn't perfect, it seemed okay from the outside looking in. When Crystal's maroon Chevy Impala was found along the Bluegrass Parkway two days later, Crystal was reporting missing. Her disappearance would spark the third major criminal investigation in as many years, and - to this day - Crystal's whereabouts remain unknown.

On the evening of January 18th, 2016, a young man named Daniel Shaver was checked into a hotel room in Mesa, Arizona. He was in-town for business, having left his wife and two daughters behind at their home in Granbury, Texas.Daniel was enjoying life, and invited two guests to his hotel room for some drinks. There, he decided to show them his pellet guns (which he used for his work at a pest removal company). Some guests saw him handling these perceived weapons through his open window, and decided to warn the front desk. This led to a 911 call, and - ultimately - an encounter with police. At the end of the evening, Daniel Shaver would be dead... while the young officer that pulled the trigger found himself facing murder charges.

The sprawling investigation was headed by the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia (MPDC) - who were then joined investigators from the Maryland State Police force, as well as Maryland's Montgomery and Prince George's (PG) counties.

Tristan Brübach

On March 26th, 1998, thirteen-year-old Tristan Brübach went to school (in the Höchst district of Frankfurt). He had tried to skip class, telling both his father and his teachers that he needed to see a doctor, but he would be in-attendance for most of the school day.Early that afternoon, Tristan would be granted an early release (by school officials) to see a doctor. Using public transportation, Tristan headed to a nearby train station... where - bizarrely - he ended up sitting around for several hours. Classmates would later recall that he might have been waiting for someone.Hours later - in the early evening - the body of Tristan Brübach would be found in a nearby underpass. He had become the victim of a bizarre and savage killer, who has not been identified in the 20+ years since... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a PatronLearn more about today's sponsor, Zola, by heading to zola.com/unresolved (where you can use the promo code "unresolved" to save $50 on your wedding planning experience)This podcast features a promo for The Nowhere Dispatch, hosted by my friend, Lucas Music CreditsROZKOL - "Hoenikker"Borrtex - "Realization"Rest You Sleeping Giant - "Sleep"Kai Engel - "Wake Up"Xenojam - "Abduction"Percival Pembroke - "Ammonia"The Pangolins - "Beneath Dark Clouds"Noiseonport - "Spectre"Graham Bole - "Soylent Green"Rotten Bliss - "Lighthouse"Other music written and composed by Ailsa Traves

New Mexico State Penitentiary Riot (Part Three: The Devil's Butcher Shop)

On February 3rd, 1980, the riot at the New Mexico State Pen carried on into its second full day. Negotiations continued, but with a handful of prison guards still captive, the inmates were holding most of the leverage.Eventually, a peace would be brokered and order would be restored to the penitentiary. The facility itself, though, was in total disarray, and the expensive cleanup effort that followed would prove costly (not only financially, but emotionally).In the months and years that followed, the story would continue to plague the region. After-effects of the riot would be felt for years to come, and many still question certain aspects of it... Part three of three Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsGraham Bole - "Lurking"Blue Dot Sessions - "Arbinac"Percival Pembroke - "Op. 10 Sigma Variations (Excerpt)"ROZKOL - "If These"ROZKOL - "Palaver"Borrtex - "The Undertake"Rotten Bliss - "Lighthouse"Rest You Sleeping Giant - "Moss"Other music written and composed by Ailsa Traves

New Mexico State Penitentiary Riot (Part Two: The Hate Factory)

In the early morning hours of February 2nd, 1980, a dozen inmates at New Mexico's State Penitentiary took four prison guards hostage. Within an hour, more than ten guards would be taken captive, and hundreds of inmates were freed from their cells.The facility, which had been made aware of the dangers in the months preceding the riot, had done little to prepare for it. The rioting inmates made easy work of the lax security protocols meant to keep them at-bay, and - within hours - had free rein of the entire prison.What would follow would be hours of bloodshed... the likes of which were nearly-unparalleled in American history. As prison officials and law enforcement struggled to gain control of the situation, they quickly learned that they had underestimated the unadulterated rage that had been festering for years... Part two of three Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsXenojam - "Chtonic"ROZKOL - "Hell Slime"How the Night Came - "IV - C6H807"Blue Dot Sessions - "Thread of Clouds"Parvus Decree - "Hive Mind"ROZKOL - "The Institute Laboratories"Kai Engel - "Silence"Other music written and composed by Ailsa Traves and Monty Buckles

New Mexico State Penitentiary Riot (Part One: Powder Keg)

Throughout the 20th century, the New Mexico State Penitentiary earned a reputation of being, ironically, a lawless place - where violent and non-violent prisoners were forced to co-exist in cramped and deplorable conditions.Violence was constant, and certain cell blocks were allowed to run rampant over others. To make matters even worse, the prison's revolving door of wardens through the 1970's kept implementing changes, but just ended up creating vacuums... which were only ever filled with apathy and disorder.This eventually reached a head in the final days of 1979, when rumors of a vicious uprising began spreading through the facility. Prison officials thought nothing of it at the time, but in the early morning hours of February 2nd, 1980... the powder keg could no longer be contained.Part one of three Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsOKAM vs ps - "Understanding the Limits of Symbiotic Echolocation"Parvus Decree - "First Encounter"Murmurous - "Fathom"Other music written and composed by Ailsa Traves

Sunset Limited Derailment

In the early morning hours of October 9th, 1995, Amtrak's Sunset Limited - which regularly traveled between coasts - slipped off of the tracks in rural Arizona.As investigators began looking into the cause of this wreck, they discovered that this was no accident. A group (or an individual masquerading as a group) had conspired to make this derailment happen, leaving four copies of a rambling & poetic "manifesto" at the crime scene.All four letters were signed with the same moniker: "Sons of the Gestapo" (or, abbreviated, "S.O.G."). Despite an investigation that has spanned more than two decades, looked into extremist groups across North America, and offered up a $310,000 reward, the train's saboteurs have never been identified. Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a PatronThis episode features a promo for my friends Shea and Erin, who host the informative & entertaining podcast All Crime No Cattle Music CreditsOKAM vs ps - "Exploring the Convoluted Singularity"Squire Tuck - "What Will Be Will Be (Organ Remix)"The Gateless Gate - "Approaching Snow Squall"Graham Bole - "Nae Shaam"How the Night Came - "I - HNO3"ROZKOL - "The Fruit Will Rot"Chris Zabriskie - "I Used to Need the Violence"Alan Spiljak - "Forgotten"Forlon - "Roembden Crater"Other original music created and composed by Ailsa Traves

In particular, they set their sights on a town called Citrus Springs, hoping to build a thriving community.Through a number of companies and subsidiaries, the Wolfs built a company worth tens of millions of dollars.

San Francisco John Doe #60

On June 15th, 1985, the body of a young man was found in San Francisco's SoMa district.Despite being unable to learn the man's identity, police quickly discovered that the young man had been tortured and mutilated before his death. Just days after his discovery, the Santa Ana Orange County Register declared that the victim had been "bled to death and that he was butchered in ritualistic fashion in a type of devil-worship ceremony."Two years later, a violent convict confessed to having covered up the crime for his former-lover and roommate. The following investigation and trial would unearth a cult that had been preying on San Francisco's most vulnerable... or did both fall prey to the decade's rampant Satanic Panic? Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a PatronThis episode features a promo for the podcast Murder Mile, which provides an interesting take on the true crime genre MusicCreditsROZKOL - "The Fruit Will Rot"Percival Pembroke - "North Atlantic Treaty Organization"Rec008 - "Contemplation"Sergey Cheremisinov - "Sleepwalker IV"Other original music created & composed by Ailsa Traves

LeRoy Carter Jr. was a Vietnam veteran, who returned to the states and struggled to get his life back on-track. He became a transient, who spent several years trying to stay out of jail for a litany of petty crimes.On the evening of Saturday, February 7th, 1981, Carter found a quiet alcove along Alvord Lake, in the scenic-yet-troubled Golden Gate Park, where he proceeded to fall asleep.The next morning, a young woman found Carter's "blood-spattered" backpack in Golden Gate Park - which she immediately turned into police. When an officer arrived at the park to investigate the origins of the bloody bag, he had no idea he was about to make one of the most horrifying discoveries in California history... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a PatronThis episode features a promo from my buddy Adam, who hosts Point Blank: A True Crime Podcast Music CreditsOKAM vs ps - "Slit View of the Rapture"Yan Terrien - "Rose Baba"How the Night Came - "III - H3PO4"Rest You Sleeping Giant - "Themes From Frost"Alan Piljak - "Flying Away"Other original music created & composed by Ailsa Traves

On June 5th, 2010, Kenyan authorities reported that a 32-year old man living in Nairobi - named Philip Onyancha - had been taken into custody.Onyancha had come into police cross-hairs during a kidnapping investigation, exploring the circumstances in which a nine-year old boy had gone missing. Weeks after the boy disappeared, a ransom note appeared, demanding money be sent through a mobile application.Unbeknownst to Philip Onyancha, police were tracking the money. Within days, it led straight to him and his associates. But Onyancha had some secrets of his own, including the largest one: that he belonged to a murderous cult, and was well on his way to becoming Kenya's most infamous serial killer... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a PatronThis episode features a promo from my friends Casey and Samantha, who co-host the podcast True Crime Story Time Music CreditsOKAM vs ps - "Understanding the Limits of Symbiotic Echolocation"Chris Zabriskie - "I Used to Need the Violence"DR - "Wassilij Andrejewitsch Brechnuow Nikita"ROZKOL - "Turn the Whole World to Rust"Alan Piljak - "Something Wonderful"Andrew Reddy - "A Breath"How the Night Came - "IV C6H807"Magna Ingress - "Anahata I"ROZKOL - "Spider's Web"Dexter Britain - "Seeing the Future"Other original music created by Ailsa Traves

On August 14th, 1977, a pair of blackberry pickers were walking in a wooded area of Everett, Washington - nearby Mariner High School and Paine Field. There, they found the decomposing body of a young woman, who had been brutally murdered. Over the next week, police focused in their investigation on a single suspect: a man named David Marvin Roth, who had confessed to a friend (and who had also been arrested a few days after the murder on unrelated charges). Eventually, Roth would be convicted for the murder of this young woman... whose identity remained a mystery.

The Texarkana Moonlight Murders (Part Two: The Town That Dreaded Sundown)

In May of 1946, a violent crime unfolds just outside of Texarkana. A farm owner and his wife are shot multiple times by a mysterious attacker, who seems to have disappeared into thin air.While the assault bears a resemblance to a recent string of murders in Texas, it features a number of notable outliers; outliers which make investigators hesitant to officially name it a part of the recent spree.Over the next several decades, this case would grow cold. The murders would inspire an endless amount of theories, urban legends, copycats, and even a cult film, but the perpetrator - Texarkana's mysterious "Phantom Killer" - would never be identified.Part two of two Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a PatronThis episode features a promo from my buddy Erica, who hosts the podcast Southern Fried True Crime Music CreditsAndrew Reddy - "Ossuary"Astral Shit - "Vindicta (Lost Radio Reshape)"Daniel James Dolby - "Longing"Koen Daigaku - "EPV 174 Trailer"Elisa Luu - "Piano 5-1"ROZKOL - "Redrick's Lament"The Pangolins - "The Stream"Parvus Decree - "Thoughts About Future"Freddy The Indifferents - "Thousand And One Christmases (Instrumental)"Joao Picoito - "Untitled"Other original music created by Ailsa Traves

The Texarkana Moonlight Murders (Part One: The Phantom)

Texarkana is a metropolitan area that is split between Texas and Arkansas. In the 1940's, as World War Two began raging overseas, the area became a hotbed of manufacturing and storage for the war effort.Just months after the end of the war - in February of 1946 - a masked menace began lashing out at young couples in lovers' lanes. The first two victims lived to tell their tale, but the next several victims wouldn't be as lucky.As the hunt began to find this madman, the case would attract the attention of county, state, and even federal officials.

Gustave

Starting in 1987, villagers in the central African nations of Rwanda, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) began to float rumors of a vicious crocodile haunting the Ruzizi River. This crocodile - a large male Nile Crocodile - was spotted several times over the next several decades. Eventually, his fearsome appearance and ferocity made him an urban legend throughout the region.Named Gustave by herpetologist Patrice Faye, this crocodile has become a reminder that monsters still roam the Earth. He is rumored to have killed more than 300 people, making him one of the most fearsome killers in history... This is a small bonus episode to help tide you over until Unresolved returns in a couple of weeks.

This was very unlike Andrya, a divorced mother of one, who had a reputation for being reliable and punctual.Her coworkers contacted a friend, who tried to get in-touch with Andrya. Eventually, after paying Andrya an unsuccessful house call, this friend contacted the local sheriff's office, who paid a visit to Andrya's home in Grovetown, Georgia.There, police would find a chaotic crime scene, which they believe pointed to an abduction. Over the next week or so, investigators and volunteers would work to raise awareness for Andrya's disappearance, highlighting her past struggles, but a shocking discovery just a week later would shock this quiet community... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsChris Zabriskie - "Oxygen Garden"A.A.

She was planning to spend the weekend away with her husband, at their Connecticut summer home, to celebrate Mother's Day. But when she arrived home, she saw that she had received a package in the mail: a cookbook, which she believed to be an early Mother's Day gift.Unfortunately for Joan, the cookbook had been hollowed out. Inside, a three-barreled "zip gun" had been created, which shot out at her as soon as she opened it.Joan would become the only casualty of an unknown assailant, who mailed out several of these packages between 1982 and 1996. Despite police developing a couple of leads, they were never able to determine the identity of the Zip Gun Bomber... or their motives... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about this podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsLee Rosevere - "Breathing"ROZKOL - "Spider's Web"Sann Gusmo - "Sono Sonho Pausa"ROZKOL - "Turn the Whole World to Rust"Joao Picoito - "Third Floor"Vitus Von Degen - "Black Gloves"Blue Dot Sessions - "Levanger"Dexter Britain - "Seeing the Future"Ailsa Traves - "Unresolved Mysteries"

Whoever they were, they had registered a domain for "bitcoin.org" in August of that year, and the publication of this whitepaper predated the official launch of Bitcoin by a mere two months. In the decade since, Bitcoin has grown to be the world's leading cryptocurrency.

In the mid-2000's, an Australian man named Fred Pattison moved to Thailand. He had recently fallen in love with a Thai woman named Vanidda, who had two daughters from a prior marriage: Siri ("Pang") and Siriyakorn ("Bung").In 2008, the family moved to the area of Melbourne, Victoria. They began working towards a better future, and the two girls - Pang and Bung - began attending Australian schools (which they hoped would give them a leg up in the future).All was fine for a time, until the morning of June 2nd, 2011. At around 8:15 that morning, Bung left for school; a walk that normally took her ten minutes.

The Mississippi Hangings

In October of 1990, a man named David Scott Campbell was arrested in Philadelphia, Mississippi... the same city where, 30 years prior, three civil rights workers had been abducted and murdered by members of the KKK. On his first night in prison - which, coincidentally, was also his 21st birthday - Campbell took his own life.Two years later, in August of 1992, a young man from Jackson, MS met a same fate. Andre Jones, the eighteen-year-old son of a NAACP chapter president and a Nation of Islam minister, was arrested and transferred to a neighboring county. There, he also met his unfortunate end.These two young men were just endemic of a larger problem plaguing Mississippi jails and prisons over a six-year period, from 1987 to 1993. During that time span, an unusually-high number of inmates/prisoners ended up taking their own lives... and the cause is still unknown. Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsGraham Bole - "Nae Shaam"Gallery Six - "Hydroscope"ROZKOL - "Redrick's Lament"Ryan Little - "Summer Dreams"Kai Engel - "Soli"Rest You Sleeping Giant - "Themes From Frost"Pulse Emitter - "Moonlit Valley"Magna Ingress - "The Glow"Organoid - "Cassini"Krackatoa - "Long White Cloud"Ailsa Traves - "Unresolved"

All three were the last you'd expect to find in the middle of a murder investigation.Over the next two decades, the investigation would focus on a number of connections: an "oddly-dressed man" seen leaving the salon that morning; a similar murder that took place in Great Bend, Kansas; and finally, a local illegal narcotics operation. But to this day, the case remains unresolved... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsRotten Bliss - "Under The Branches"Graham Bole - "Nae Shaam"The Gateless Gate - "Mvatn"Noiseonport - "Spectre"ROZKOL - "Hell Slime"Parvus Decree - "Threatening Places"Blear Moon - "Cold Summer Landscapes"Parvus Decree - "Thoughts About Future"Percival Pembroke - "North Atlantic Trade Organization"Rest You Sleeping Giant - "Themes From Frost"Graham Bole - "Theme For Rosa"Ailsa Traves - "Unresolved"

Arlis Perry (Update)

In October of 1974, a young woman named Arlis Perry was brutally murdered in the Stanford Memorial Church. Over the years, her case has been bandied about as a potential cult-based murder, has been tied to unrelated offenders such as the Son of Sam, and even became the focus of many "Satanic Panic" theories in the 1980s.I covered this story in one of the first episodes of the podcast, back in March of 2016.

Originating in Florida, and then spreading into other populated areas along the East Coast, anthrax-laced letters made every American question their safety.Over the next decade, federal investigators tried to determine who was behind this biological attack, which left seventeen infected and five dead in its wake. But even now - close to 17 years later - the same doubts continue to linger...  Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast (and others), consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsFabio Keiner - "El Canto Tercero"ROZKOL - "On The Run"Kai Engel - "After Midnight"Breath Before The Plunge - "End Of All Things"Scott Holmes - "Everest"Pulse Emitter - "Triangulum Galaxy"ROZKOL - "Opening Credits"Daniel James Dolby - "Yearning"

Mike Emert

On January 4th, 2001, a Seattle-area real estate agent met up with a potential client in a parking lot. This client, who had contacted the realtor directly, was described as both "odd" and "weird."While viewing a home in the area of Woodinville, WA, the real estate agent, Mike Emert, was brutally killed by an unknown attacker. The crime - which was particularly brutal - looked to be premeditated and methodically planned.For years, the mystery of Mike's death has haunted his family, friends, and other real estate agents in the Pacific Northwest. A decade would pass before police discovered the likely culprit of this violent act... but it had become too late for investigators to close the case on Mike's death... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsParvus Decree - "First Encounter"Lee Rosevere - "Morning Mist"Rotten Bliss - "Under The Branches"The Pangolins - "The Stream"Daniel James Dolby - "Yearning"Magna Ingress - "Anahata I"ROZKOL - "On The Run"Astral Shit - "Vindicta (Lost-Radio Reshape)"Graham Bole - "Heebie Jeebies"

The Zodiac (Part Three: Legacy)

Between December of 1968 and October of 1969, four separate attacks left the San Francisco Bay Area shaking. Two attacks happened in the area of Vallejo, another took place along scenic Lake Berryessa, and the final incident took place in San Francisco itself - in the wealthy neighborhood of Presidio Heights.A madman, who referred to himself as "The Zodiac," began corresponding with the media at around the same time. He took credit for the attacks, and - as the attacks progressed - he became more confident and began threatening police, journalists, and even school-children.Throughout the years, many have theorized connections to this mysterious killer: other possible crimes, noted suspects, etc. But the many mysteries of the Zodiac killer continues to linger...Part three of three. Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsBlue Dot Sessions - "Olivia Wraithe"Soft And Furious - "Melancholic Ending"Laoish Ma - "Enoch"noiseonport - "Spectre"Artem Bemba - "Respiratory Waves"Blear Moon - "Cold Summer Landscape"Percival Pembroke - "North Atlantic Treaty Organization"Marcos H.

The Zodiac (Part Two: This Is The Zodiac)

Three weeks after the Fourth of July shooting incident at Blue Rock Springs Park - in Vallejo, California - a mysterious series of letters were received by publications in San Francisco's Bay Area. The writer offered up a three-part cipher, which supposedly contained the identify of the shooter.As the media began to pick apart these cryptograms, another couple of crimes seem to continue the killer's crime spree. First, a young couple is brutally attacked at Napa County's scenic Lake Berryessa in September of 1969; then, a San Francisco cab driver is randomly targeted just weeks later, in October.The writer of the original letters - who dubbed himself "The Zodiac" - takes credit for all of these murders. But then he begins to wage a war of terror on the Bay Area itself...Part two of three. Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod become a Patron Music Creditskrackatoa - "Noahs Stark"The Gateless Gate - "The Idea Of North"Pulse Emitter - "Triangulum Galaxy"Joao Picoito - "Untitled"Kai Engel - "Sunset"ROZKOL - "Stay Quiet"Parvus Decree - "Subway Reflections"Jahzzar - "Little Chance"

The Zodiac (Part One: Vallejo)

On December 20th, 1968, two teenagers - David Faraday and Betty Lou Jensen - were going out on their first date. The two were natives to the Vallejo area of California, and spent their evening driving around, before settling into a cozy lover's lane along Lake Herman Road. There, they were shot and killed by an unknown assailant.For months, the investigation into the shooting of David and Betty faltered... until a similar crime took place a handful of miles away.When Darlene Ferrin and Michael Mageau were shot at Vallejo's Blue Rock Springs Park on July 4th, 1969 - and a mysterious individual called police dispatchers to claim credit just minutes later - it officially kicked off one of America's most infamous criminal investigations... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsThe Gateless Gate - "Melnibone"Lee Rosevere - "Breathing"Chancius - "Time And Space Died Yesterday"Kai Engel - "Touch The Darkness"Sann Gusmo - "Sono Sonho Pausa"Magna Ingress - "Watershed"

Bethany Deaton

In 2005, Bethany Ann Leidlein left for Southwestern University. She was a bright young student, whose writing had earned her a scholarship to this private institution.While at Southwestern, Bethany became involved with a group of friends. They originally bonded over their love of fantasy novels (in particular, Harry Potter), and were all looking forward to long and happy lives. Through 2009, they continued to grow closer due to their faith, guided by a charismatic young man named Tyler Deaton.By 2012, Bethany was married to this Tyler, who harbored secrets of his own. They lived in a bizarre religious community outside of Kansas City, Missouri. And, at the end of that year, Bethany would be dead... while another member of their religious sect was awaiting trial... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsAilsa Traves - "Third Corridor"Rotten Bliss - "Under The Branches"Organoid - "Cassini"Artem Bemba - "Red Shore"Pulse Emitter - "Nebula"Rec008 - "Contemplation"Kai Engel - "Silence"Blue Dot Sessions - "Olivia Wraith"Parvus Decree - "Thoughts About Future"Kay - "Call Of The Void"The Pangolins - "The Stream"Daniel James Dolby - "Broken Things"Borrtex - "One Moment"Breath Before The Plunge - "New Years Day"Ailsa Traves - "Unresolved"

The Morgan County Three

Over a four-year period (1967 - 1970), three women fell prey to violent crimes that plagued an area of northern Alabama: - Mary Faye Hunter (who disappeared in March of 1967, and whose remains were found in October of that year)- Juanita Acker (a widowed mother of three who was shot twice in the head at point-blank range in May of 1969)- Joyce Drake (a young mother of two who was found, brutally murdered in a violent robbery in January of 1970)Are these crimes linked to one another? It's impossible to tell.

The Original Night Stalker (Update)

This is an update regarding the first story I tackled on "Unresolved," that of the serial offender that went by several names: Original Night Stalker, East Area Rapist, Golden State Killer, and Visalia Ransacker. On April 24th, police in Ventura County, California, arrested 72-year old Joseph James Deangelo for the murders of Charlene and Lyman Smith. They were just two deaths attributed to this unknown killer, this mysterious EAR/ONS/GSK, among over a dozen.Upon his arrest, law enforcement announced a press conference for this four-decades old cold case. Investigators and websleuths alike are desperate to learn any details about this little-known Deangelo, who wasn't even on the radar of law enforcement more than a week ago. Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meConsider supporting the podcast by heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod and becoming a patron Music CreditsAlea Minerva - "Dead Letters"Pulse Emitter - "Decaying Ships"Tapes Tubes - "Salad Days"Kay - "Call Of The Void"

Sgt. Patrick Rust (Part Two: Found)

In September of 2007, the skeletal remains of Sergeant Patrick Rust were found in a field outside of Watertown, New York. Immediately, the Army CID changed the course of their investigation, steering their focus away from an AWOL soldier to a non-combat death.Likewise, since Patrick's remains were found outside of Watertown - in rural Jefferson County - the case was handed off from Watertown PD to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department. They, too, began investigating the case as an "unknown death," as both the manner and cause of death proved impossible to identify.Throughout the next several years, the investigation would stumble through several roadblocks and detours, ultimately resulting in a story that remains unfinished...Part two of two. Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron Music CreditsBorrtex - "Journey"Blue Dot Sessions - "Chilvittle"Organoid - "Cassini"Pulse Emitter - "Nebula"Murmurous - "Fathom"Blue Dot Sessions - "Olivia Wraith"Kai Engel - "Wake Up!"Ailsa Traves - "Unresolved Mysteries"

This is an update regarding an episode I released in January of 2018, titled "Freeman/Bible." In December of 1999, the bodies of Danny and Kathy Freeman were found in their burned trailer home, outside of Welch, Oklahoma. For over eighteen years, investigators have wondered what happened to the Freeman's missing teenage daughter, Ashley, and her best friend, Lauria Bible (who had been staying over).Just today, police announced that they have a suspect in custody, named Ronnie Dean Busick. They also believe that two other men - Warren Phillip Welch II and David Pennington (both now deceased) - were involved in the crime. Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.me Music CreditsGraham Bole - "Sunset At Goat Fell"Cory Gray - "Piano Anticipation"

Sgt. Patrick Rust (Part One: Lost)

In 2007, Patrick Rust was a 24-year old Sergeant in the U.S. Army, who had just recently returned from his second deployment. A native New Yorker, Patrick had enlisted just months after 9/11, and his time in the military had taken him through training in Oklahoma and Texas, and two separate deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. In March of that year, Patrick moved off-post for the first time, with a roommate he had known for roughly fifteen months. The two lived together for a single day before Patrick went missing, in the early morning hours of March 16th. In the hours before his disappearance, Patrick had made a suspicious withdrawal from an ATM, made and received a series of erratic phone calls, taken a mysterious detour with acquaintances that others describe as "troubled," and encountered a blast from his past in the most unlikely of settings. All of it painted a very convoluted picture, which investigators have not been able to decipher in over a decade. Part one of two.  Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a PatronMake sure to check out the podcast Yours In Murder, hosted by my friends Rachel and RebeccaIf you want to save $20 from your first order at Winc, you can use the offer code trywinc.com/unresolved Music CreditsAilsa Traves - "Unresolved I & II"blacksona - "Pain Nerves Depression - 05"Robert Farmer - "If We Knew All The Laws Of Nature"Pulse Emitter - "Decaying Ships"Sann Gusmo - "Sono Sonho Pausa"Magna Ingress - "Anahata III"Graham Bole - "Sunset At Goat Fell"

Phantom Social Workers

In February of 2018, a woman in the Australian city of Queanbeyan claimed that a stranger had visited her home. This mysterious woman, who was unknown to the young mother, had come to inspect her house and her two children. She claimed to be an FACS caseworker, but - as this small suburb outside of Canberra would soon learn - this was not the case.This story hearkens back to the first half of the 1990s, when similar stories broke out across the United Kingdom. From Sheffield to the northern tip of Scotland, worried parents claimed that strangers - pretending to be social workers - tried to either inspect or abduct their children.But where did this urban legend originate? Well, if you believe some, it all began with a child abuse scandal from Cleveland in the mid-1980s... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a PatronMake sure to check out the podcast Criminology, hosted by my friends Mike Ferguson and Mike MorfordIf you want to save $30 from your first Hello Fresh order, you can use the offer code "unresolved30" at check-out Music CreditsRotten Bliss - "Under The Branches"Kay - "Call Of The Void"Magna Ingress - "Anahata I"Pulse Emitter - "Triangulum Galaxy"Rec008 - "Contemplation"ROZKOL - "Hell Slime"Ailsa Traves - "Unresolved"

The Shaw Creek Killer

On the morning of November 16th, 1987, a pair of hunters discovered the skeletonized remains of a young woman just a stone's throw away from Shaw Creek - in the woods just south of Eureka, South Carolina. These remains have never been identified, and serve as the jumping-off point for an investigation that now spans over three decades. In 1991, the remains of a local woman - Jackie Council - would be found roughly half-a-mile away. Then, in 1993, another unidentified Jane Doe was found just off Shaw Creek. As if that wasn't enough, the body of a Georgia woman that went missing in 1989 - named Risteen Durden - was found just a few miles away in 1992.The state these women were found in point to a single suspect: a killer that terrorized young black women in Aiken County. However, until now, this killer hasn't even had a name... and while there are many of suspects to look at, none of them completely fit the bill... Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meUse the link thecrimemag.com/unresolved to subscribe to True Crime Magazine and save over $100 Music CreditsRobert Farmer - "We Will Not Be Shipwrecked On A Vain Reality"Andrew Reddy - "A Breath"Kai Engel - "Wake Up!"Kay - "Call Of The Void"Koen Daigaku - "EPV_174 Trailer"Parvus Decree - "The Unborn"Magna Ingress - "Running Away"Graham Bole - "We Are One"Breath Before The Plunge - "End Of All Things"

Malakia Logan

Two years before the disappearance of the Millbrook Twins, and six years before Tiffany Nelson went missing, another African American girl went missing about an hour north - in a small town called Greenwood, South Carolina. Malakia Zali Logan was a regular kid, who spent the evening of May 15th, 1988 playing with friends. Sometime between 8:00 and 8:30 PM, she hopped on her bike and headed home - a distance no greater than 300 yards. Her bike was found overturned by the apartment's office, but she was never seen again. Throughout the investigation, various leads and suspects would come and go. However, for nearly thirty years, the abduction and murder of "Kia" Logan has gone unsolved.  Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.meUse the link harrys.com/unresolved to sign up at Harry's and earn their free trial shave setIf you are interested in becoming a patron, consider heading to patreon.com/unresolvedpod Music CreditsLee Rosevere - "Morning Mist"Breath Before The Plunge - "New Year's Day"Rest You Sleeping Giant - "Themes From Frost"Kai Engel - "Modum"Borrtex - "Wondering"Parvus Decree - "Haunting Memories"Magna Ingress - "The Wanderer"Blue Dot Sessions - "Levanger"The Music Plays You - "Dusk To Dawn"

Tiffany Nelson

In June of 1994, a nine-year old girl was preparing to live out her summer dreams. Tiffany Elizabeth Nelson, a native of Augusta, Georgia, was a tomboy that loved to ride her bike while wearing frilly dresses. She had suffered the loss of her mother just two years prior, and was living with her aunt, Ora, in her home along Getzen Drive - just a few miles away from where Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook had gone missing four years beforehand. It was the first Monday of summer vacation, when Tiffany rode her bike down to a corner convenience store just a few blocks away. She was last seen at that gas station at approximately 10:00 AM, filling up her bike tires with air. When she went missing, very little was done to find her - or to investigate any of the potential offenders living in the area. Over the next eleven years, Tiffany would just become a footnote for the area: a cautionary tale for neighborhood children. But in 2005, a forester made a discovery roughly twenty miles south, which proved that there was more to Tiffany's case than met the eye...  Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic by Lisa HoganLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.me If you want to save $30 from your first Hello Fresh order, you can use the offer code "unresolved30" at check-out

The Millbrook Twins (Part Three: The Now)

In March of 1990, two teenagers disappeared from Augusta, Georgia. Their names are Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook. Early on, the lead detective - who handled all of Augusta's missing teenager cases - zeroed in on the theory that both girls had run away together. This theory began to look less likely with each passing day, but that didn't stop the case from being closed in 1991 and the investigation shuttered until 2013. In the years since, police and independent investigators have had very little evidence to draw on, basing their understanding of the case on the comments made by that original lead detective. He has placed most of the blame for the case's mishandling on someone - a juvenile probation officer, who knew the family of the twins and volunteered his time. In this episode, I speak to the sister of the twins, Shanta Sturgis, in the hopes of understanding who this juvenile probation officer was, and why the lead detective has decided to give him the majority of the blame. We also chat the current status of the case, and what you - the listener - can do to help out. Part three of three.  If you would like to help support the family, you can head to the following link: https://www.youcaring.com/dannetteandjeannettemillbrook-1090923 This is a crowdfunding effort I have established alongside the hosts of the Fall Line podcast, Brooke and Laurah. We are hoping to put up a billboard in Augusta, to not only inform the area that the case is still very open, but that there is a $8000+ reward for information that leads to any answers for the Millbrook & Sturgis family.  Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic by Lisa Hogan

The Millbrook Twins (Part Two: The Unknown)

On the approximate date of April 8th, 1991, the family of missing teenagers Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook were met by one of the investigators handling their case. The family was told that because their 17th birthday had come-and-gone, that the girls - wherever they were - could no longer be forced to return home. So the family had to put their faith in a higher power to help their missing relatives return home, because law enforcement had no interest in finding them. Then, just two years after this meeting, one of the police officials contacted NCMEC - the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children - and told them that the girls had been found. Which is it? Were they still missing, or had they been found?This would just be the beginning of a three-decades-in-the-making mystery, which has consumed the time and effort of Shanta Sturgis, the twins' younger sister. To this day, she (and the rest of the twins' family) has received little-to-no help from law enforcement. I speak to her, and the makers of the Fall Line podcast, in an effort to get to the bottom of law enforcement's hesitance to speak out about this investigation.Part two of three. Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic by Lisa Hogan Follow along with Shanta at her Facebook group, Missing Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook, which can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/twwinsfammily/Check out The Fall Line podcast, whose website can be found at: https://www.thefalllinepodcast.com/ If you want to support this episode's sponsor, and claim a free shave set from Harrys, head to harrys.com/unresolvedIf you want to support this podcast's endeavor to become a weekly show, head to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to pledge your supportLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.me

The Millbrook Twins (Part One: The Known)

In March of 1990, a pair of twins - named Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook - disappeared from their hometown of Augusta, GA. By all indications, they were just a regular couple of teenagers. They came from a large immediate family, but spent most of their time at home: they sang along to songs on the radio, spent most of their free time lounging around in front of the television, and attended church every Sunday. But on one particular Sunday - March 18th, 1990 - the twins walked through the neighborhood, hoping to collect bus fare from their godfather. They visited their godfather, then their cousin, and finally their sister, before stopping by a convenience store to buy some snacks. When they left the store, they were never seen again. I am joined by the younger sister of the twins, Shanta Sturgis, as well as the hosts of the podcast The Fall Line. Part one of three.  Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic by Lisa Hogan Follow along with Shanta at her Facebook group, Missing Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook, which can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/twwinsfammily/Check out The Fall Line podcast, whose website can be found at: https://www.thefalllinepodcast.com/ If you want to support this episode's sponsor, and save $20 from your first order at Winc, check out: trywinc.com/unresolvedIf you want to support this podcast's endeavor to become a weekly show, head to patreon.com/unresolvedpod to pledge your supportLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.me

The Beaumont Children (Update)

In January of 1966, the disappearance of three children became one of the 20th century's most enduring mysteries. 9-year old Jane, 7-year old Arnna, and 4-year old Grant were trusted to trusted by their parents, Jim and Nancy, to spend the day at the nearby Glenelg Beach. When they failed to return home on their 2:00 PM bus, Australia's biggest search operation was launched to find them.  It has been over fifty years, and the three kids have never been found. But now, police have picked up on a new lead, involving a person I briefly mention in episodes 10 and 11. I also talk about some other persons-of-interest that have cropped up over the past couple of years.    Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan  Huge thanks to Lisa Hogan for supplying her original music, including today's track, "Troglodyte Excerpt."

Jack Robinson

In August of 1996, newly-retired Jack L. Robinson was prepared to start the next chapter of his life. After spending twenty-five years in the United States Air Force (including a stint in Vietnam) and an additional twenty years as a civil servant working at Moncrief Army Health Clinic in his hometown of Columbia, South Carolina, Jack had accomplished more than most. On an uneventful summer day, Jack went down to the Rosewood Boat Landing in his old neighborhood of Olympia. This boat ramp, which not many locals were aware of, was hidden behind the rock quarry. Yet Jack found himself there at approximately 6:00 PM on August 17th. He started talking to a younger man, and the two walked into a nearby clearing. Soon, their argument took a violent turn, and Jack was murdered at the hands of this unknown assailant. In this episode, I go through the story, and try to separate the facts from the theories. I also speak to Jack's only child, Tammy, who has kept the case alive online and in the media.  Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan MusicGraham Bole - "We Are One"Robert Farmer - "Why So Seeming Fast But So Deadly Slow"Cory Gray - "Piano (Anticipation)"Daniel James Dolby - "Broken Things"Borrtex - "Silence"

Freeman & Bible

On December 29th, 1999, a teenager named Lauria Bible was spending the night with her friend, Ashley Freeman. They were celebrating Ashley's 16th birthday, and it was the first time that Lauria had been allowed over to Ashley's home in a year-and-a-half. The reasoning that Lauria hadn't been allowed over was because Ashley's father, Danny Freeman, had a bit of a reputation. He had long been rumored to have a temper, as well as an abusive relationship with his children: Ashley, as well as her older brother, Shane. Shane had been shot and killed by police months beforehand, sending patriarch Danny further into a downward spiral.At around 6:00 AM, on the morning of December 30th, a passing motorist noticed flames emerging from the Freeman's country home. When police arrived, they found a suspicious scene... but the events that would unfold later on cemented this story as one of the most enduring mysteries of the 21st century. Written by Kristen SkinnerHosted, produced, and additional writing by Micheal WhelanLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.me MusicOriginal music by Monty BucklesRobert Farmer - "I Wonder What The World Is Doing Now"Borrtex - "Wondering"Scott Holmes - "Nostalgic Resonance"Elisa Luu - "Piano 5-1"Parvus Decree - "Gliese 581C"Astral Shit - "Vindicta Lost-Radio Reshape"Borrtex - "One Moment"Kai Engel - "Silence"

The Brabant Killers (Part Five: Theories & Suspects II)

Following the final attack by the Brabant Killers, the police investigation struggled to find any real progress. Suspects like Madani Bouhouche and Robert Beijer came and went, with only tentative ties to extremist groups being found. As the 1980s came to an end, trouble behind-the-scenes spelled trouble for investigators. Prosecutors were sent packing, parliamentary commissions were created and then concluded, and suspects continued to emerge. First came Phillipe de Staercke - a violent thug with a proclivity for violence - who had ties to a well-armed government official, named Jean Bultot. Then came Patrick Haemers, a well-known Belgian criminal who committed suicide in the early 1990s. This episode also details the fledgling investigation as it progressed into the 2000s, and includes some of the more... "outlandish" theories, as well as recent updates that inspire confidence in the survivor's demands for justice.Part five of five.  InfoWritten, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic by T.

The Brabant Killers (Part Four: Theories & Suspects I)

On November 9th, 1985, the Brabant Killers struck for the last time. This attack - which was the bloodiest yet - resulted in eight people dead, seven others injured, and a criminal investigation that was plagued from the very beginning. The Brabant Killers happened to attack in the middle of a very tumultuous time for Belgium. Terrorist organizations were rising up during that time period, from different sides of the political spectrum. The Westland New Post were right-wing extremists, lead by Paul Latinus and Michel Libert... Latinus would commit suicide mysteriously in the early days of 1984, and Libert would be officially questioned by police for Brabant involvement as recently as 2014. Meanwhile, the left-leaning Communist Combatant Cells - who had bombed various targets through 1984 and 1985 - were led by a man named Pierre Carette, who would find himself behind bars at the same time the Brabant attacks ended.As the investigation proceeded, officials began to suspect police involvement. Soon, after the mysterious murder of Juan Mendez in 1986, they found themselves on the heels of two men named Madani Bouhouche and Robert Beijer... both of whom have been suspected as Brabant Killer suspects ever since. Part four of five. InfoWritten, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic by T. NordgrenLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.me Music CreditsDelicasession - "Horizon"Blue Dot Sessions - "Olivia Wraithe" Sponsors- Head to Harrys.com/unresolved to claim your free Harry's shave set- Use offer code "UNRESOLVED15" at Sudio Sweden

The Brabant Killers (Part Three: 1985)

Throughout 1982 and 1983, three criminals terrorized the area of Brussels. Starting off with nothing more than ski masks and a single rifle, the three quickly armed themselves with military-grade equipment and became feared for their brutal robberies.In 1984, the Killers disappeared. The public at-large waited for the investigation to make progress, but before long, the "Mad Killers of Belgium" returned to commit their most heinous attacks yet. Part three of five.  InfoWritten, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic and production by T. NordgrenAdditional editing by Elias at e-Audio ProductionsLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.me Music CreditsPipe Choir - "Monachine" Sponsors- Head to Harrys.com/unresolved to claim your free Harry's shave set- Head to Sudio Sweden's website and use the offer code "UNRESOLVED15" to save 15% on any pair of headphones

The Brabant Killers (Part Two: 1983)

Throughout 1982, Belgian police were concerned over a rash of strange attacks plaguing the Brussels area. All involved criminals matching the same basic descriptions, but lacked any real motive. They seemed to be the actions of a mysterious gang lashing out... but at something or someone without any real purpose. Going into 1983, these attacks would continue. Worse, they would escalate, with the gang becoming more bold and violent throughout the year. Car jackings, robberies, murders - it seemed like there were no ethical concerns for these mysterious criminals, who would continue to act throughout 1983, before disappearing under mysterious circumstances. Part two of five.  InfoWritten, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic and production by T. NordgrenAdditional editing by Elias at e-Audio ProductionsLearn more about the podcast at unresolved.me Sponsors- Head to harrys.com/unresolved to claim your free Harry's trial shave set- Head to Sudio Sweden's website to use offer code "UNRESOLVED15" to save 15% on any pair of headphones

Bible John

In February of 1968, 25-year old Patricia Docker visited the Barrowland Ballroom on a Thursday evening, leaving her son in the care of her parents. She was estranged from her husband but still legally married, so she didn't tell anyone her apparent destination, for fear of judgment. You see, Thursday nights at the Barrowland Ballroom came with a reputation. Some of the Thursday patrons were adulterers, looking for a night of fun away from the stresses of everyday life. One killer used this reputation to his advantage. In addition to Docker, this killer also claimed the lives of two more women: 32-year old Jemima McDonald in August of 1969, and 29-year old Helen Puttock just two months later in the latter days of October.Despite unique details about the suspect being released to the public, as well as one of the most intricate sketches in Scottish history, the identity of the figure named "Bible John" has remained a mystery for the ages.  Learn more about the podcast at unresolved.me  Written by Robert Cron Hosted, produced, and additional writing by Micheal Whelan Additional music and production by T. Nordgren

The Alcasser Girls (Part Five: The Trial)

By 1997, Miguel Ricart had been a prisoner of the Spanish Civil Guard for over four years. He had been in their custody since January of 1993, awaiting trial for the murder of three teenage girls from Alcasser. Ricart would find an unlikely ally in one of the victim's parents, Fernando Garcia. Garcia wasn't interested in saving Miguel's life; rather, he was concerned that the prosecutor had developed tunnel vision on Miguel, and ignored any other potential leads or clues. In this episode, I focus on everything that happened after the initial police investigation, including the trial of Miguel Ricart, Fernando Garcia's partnership with an esteemed true crime author, and the theories that have cropped up in the decades since.  Learn more about the podcast at unresolved.meWritten, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic and production by T. Nordgren Additional music provided by: Parvus Decree - "Thoughts About Future"

The Alcasser Girls (Part Four: The Truth)

It has now been weeks since the bodies of Toni Gomez Rodriguez, Desiree Hernandez Folch, and Miriam Garcia Iborra were found in the Spanish hills of La Romana. One suspect has been in custody for over a month, while the other has escaped justice... seemingly forever. Miguel Ricart confesses to the rape, torture, and murder of the three teenage victims multiple times, but his confessions always contrast in stark details. More often than not, his confessions line up with what police knew at the time, based off of the autopsies of the victims and their exhaustive investigation.But each subsequent confession painted a muddled picture: one that gives credence to Miguel Ricart's later claims that the confessions were coerced. This episodes explores how those confessions evolved over time - with and without police involvement. Part four of five. Learn more about the podcast at unresolved.meWritten, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan. Music and production by T. Nordgren.  Additional music credits:Graham Bole - "We Are One"The Gateless Gate - "Endless Grey"Pipe Choir - "Fortress (Instrumental)"

The Alcasser Girls (Part Three: The Fugitive)

On January 27th, 1993, the bodies of Toni Gomez Rodriguez, Desiree Hernandez Folch, and Miriam Garcia Iborra were found. The Spanish teens, from a small town named Alcasser, had gone missing in November of 1992 under mysterious circumstances. Within hours of their discovery, police had a suspect in-mind. Hours after that, they had a full detailed confession, which the suspect - Miguel Ricart - claims was coerced. This confession pointed most of the blame at another man: one of Miguel's friends, a local drug dealer named Antonio Angles, who had recently been convicted for a violent offense and escaped from prison. This episode details the ongoing investigation, as it began to consider a second autopsy and further confessions from Miguel, and goes into the Spanish Civil Guard's hunt for Antonio Angles... who continued to outsmart them at every turn. Part three of five.  Learn more about the podcast at unresolved.meWritten, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan Music and production by T. Nordgren  Additional music provided by: Soft And Furious - "Melancholic Ending" Marcos H.

Investigators quickly surmised that these were the missing girls that had disappeared from Alcasser seventy-five days beforehand. Quickly, the investigation pieced together some evidence at the scene to produce a suspect. The clues began to paint a brutal picture of how the three girls met their fate, but many have critiqued this investigation for damaging the case forever. Part two of five.  Learn more about the podcast by visiting unresolved.meWritten, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic and production by T. Nordgren Music credits:Lullabelle - "Somos Magneticos"Blue Dot Sessions - "Levanger"

The Alcasser Girls (Part One: The Discovery)

On November 13th, 1992, three girls from a small Spanish town called Alcasser set off in the early evening. Their names were Toni Gomez Rodriguez, Desiree Hernandez Folch, and Miriam Garcia Iborra. They never made it to their destination - a nightclub located in a neighboring town - despite being seen just down the block. Over the next two months, the police had to rely on some spotty eyewitness testimony as their only way of finding the girls. The next seventy-five days would be torture for the family of the girls, who would receive a crushing blow when a couple of middle-aged beekeepers made a gruesome discovery in the final days of January. Part one of five. Learn more about the podcast at unresolved.meWritten, hosted, and produced by Micheal WhelanMusic and production by T. Nordgren Music credits:"Thunder" by Air Waves"Glacier" by Marcos H.

Suzanne Sevakis, born in 1969, was the oldest of four children. When her mother went to prison for a minor infraction, Suzanne and her siblings were overseen by their guardian, newfound stepfather Brandon Cleo Williams. Sadly, that was just an alias for a wanted fugitive known as Franklin Delano Floyd.  As she moved throughout the country, growing up with the man that she would call both father and husband, Suzanne would go by many names: Suzanne Davis, Sharon Marshall, and Tonya Hughes among them. But her story reached an end when she was murdered in Oklahoma City in 1990, a crime that is unsolved to this day.  However, that tragic hit-and-run accident would unearth a can of worms, a decades-long mystery that investigators are still trying to piece together today...  Part one of three.    Learn more about the podcast at unresolved.me Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan   Music credits:  "Basscoast Weekend" by Artem Bemba "Triangulum Galaxy" by Pulse Emitter "Limitless Blue" by The Gateless Gate "Rec008 - Contemplation"by Lo-Fi Fidelity "Themes From Frost" by Rest You Sleeping Giant "Melancholic Kid" by Marcos H.
