My latest true crime article features a strange tale involving a tranny with a mummy, a missing child who is found in an unbelievable spot and the horrid narrative of good deeds ending in a double murder.

The 1999 disappearances of Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman in Oklahoma following the murders of Ashley's parents and arson of the Freeman home is a case which has fascinated me for over a decade. I actually just posted an interview with Lauria's mother, Lorene yesterday on my true crime-based website:

http://culturecrossfire.com/etc/unsolved-vol-20/#.Vr3c6PIrLIU Two true crime tales...first the story of a factory worker who died under mysterious circumstances while on the job. The possible police corruption involved makes one think "Making a Murderer" might be 20 years too late. Plus a story on a journalist who became too close to the case of a serial killer....

http://culturecrossfire.com/etc/unsolved-jarydatadero/#.VscprvIrLIU Two true crime tales... one covers the story of a boy lost in the woods. The clues left behind prove to not match the theories of his disappearance. Then the most bizarre story of conception you'll probably ever read is gone over.

Four cases of true crime... A video shows a man's final moments, but that doesn't make the reasons for his disappearance any clearer...A college student is found dead, but the clues don't match the official story....A little girl vanishes but are strangers responsible or was it her father and his wacko friend?... and finally the case of a woman who died at a party under circumstances that her police officer father refuses to believe...

thanks for the links Arnold. I worked a summer job for a retired Army Colonel who told me that Kennedys assassination was a CIA hit and I've been fascinated ever since.

There a few unsolved cases that fascinate me which I have conducted interviews about since the launch of my true crime-based website last fall. The 1988 abduction of Michaela Joy Garecht in California is one of the most prolific missing persons cases in history, and the murders of Rachael Runyan and Amy Mihaljevic in the 1980s remain unsolved as well. Below are links to interviews with the mothers of Garecht and Runyan, as well as one with investigative journalist and author James Renner on the Mihaljevic case:

And if you're interested in more details about their relationship, Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar by Simon Sebag Montefiore is one of the best biographies I've ever read.

That second story was infuriating.

I read all of these posts so thanks for writing.

To this day I remember the tunneling bank robbers from a segment of "Unsolved Mysteries" on NBC. The LA Police detectives were interviewed and noted with some certainty that the guys had experience in construction and/or mining, but despite that, they had no way of getting any IDs on them. Another thing the cops suspected was that the robbers had a team member at street level watching the bank in the event a squad car showed up after being alerted by a silent alarm.

http://culturecrossfire.com/etc/robbiemiddletonmurder/#.VuwKffkrLIU My latest true crime article covers the brutal attempted murder of a child by way of setting him ablaze.

Two true crime cases are presented, first is the story of a high school party that ends with a missing kid and a series of bizarre clues. Next comes a strange case where a college student vanishes abruptly. The story becomes stuff of legend on campus and twists into a paranormal fable among the students. Then this week is closed out with an UPDATE on a previous case that was covered in this series!!!

Today's stories include a chilling scream over the phone that precedes a woman going missing from her own home, then a clown kills a woman in broad daylight-with witnesses- and escapes, the circumstances around the case will probably drive you mad. We finish with a woman and child who are found mutilated under a bridge. New clues may crack the case yet...plus an UPDATE on a previous story I covered!

This week's true crime tale takes a look at an elderly woman who turned into a serial killer after spending her life in a whirlwind of unhappy marriages, sleazy businesses and personal loss. Her career allowed her to steal from the defenseless and desperate, and her dark soul gave her the will to kill.

Also according to WCCO shoe and tire prints found near the scene of the crime match evidence found near the scene of the Wetterling case. In addition in another kidnapping case the suspect in the Wetterling case had DNA matched another kidnapping case 10 months before the Wetterling case.. This is important because the other kidnapping is the only other case linked to the Wetterling case.

I got chills reading about this today.
The case always gave me chills. This happened back when I was 14. Of course it got mainstream coverage and over the years, the case would be mentioned on various shows. Many articles on the internet as well.

I have always been a crime junkie/sleuth and something always felt "off" about this case. Seven years ago some news came out that was shocking. Some guy was busted with child pornography and there was a video in his possession that supposedly had footage of Wetterling BEFORE he was kidnapped. Creepy and puzzling to say the least. THis news about the latest suspect also having child pornography links wasn't surprising.

I don't think we'll ever know the full story on his abduction. IMO there's a lot more to his story than was ever revealed to the public.

Arnold that is a great site you have.

Terrifying. Truly a horror film come to life. Always surprised me this story never became more well known. It needs another book by a more mainstream author and/or a Hollywood film to raise awareness of it.

While it was 1920s Germany I think if the case had happened in modern times they would have almost as much difficulty solving it. That night, its aftermath, and events leading up to it are just so bizarre.

https://truecrimefactor.com/2016/05/21/true-crime-factor-interview-james-renner-2/

It will stay one of the most prolific missing persons cases in recent memory.

Her own strange activity in the days/hours leading up to the car accident will forever prevent the case from gaining any real traction.

The desire for this college girl to rent a condo or hotel room at that time and add in the purchasing of alcohol sounds like she initially had plans for a secret fling. The lying to friends and family would also factor into this scenario.

Her activities before the wreck likely have absolutely nothing to do with her disappearance. It's really unfortunate that she didn't tell someone close to her what her initial plans were.

The accident could have been "wrong place, wrong time" but her actions at the scene and of course the rag stuffed in the tailpipe are a brain teaser for sure.

I'll give that interview a listen tomorrow. Cant imagine any new leads on this case but anything is possible I suppose.
