100: Jaliek Rainwalker


Jaliek Rainwalker was born to a cocaine-addicted, alcoholic mother. He had been moved from pillar to post throughout his childhood, having been in seven foster and adoptive homes. Jaliek seemingly landed on his feet when he was adopted by a couple who had fostered him for two years. However, when Jaliek was 12-years-old, he inexplicably vanished under suspicious circumstances.If you would like to see bonus content, check out the digital feed for this episode: http://feed.vodacast.com/45986146/Morbidology/100:%20Jaliek%20RainwalkerSPONSORS -UNIDRAGON: Thank you to Unidragon for sponsoring this episode!

Final Minutes

Jaliek Rainwalker had a tough life since birth. Born to a drug-addicted mother, he suffered from developmental issues and spent his life bouncing through foster homes before being adopted by Stephen Kerr and Jocelyn McDonald. After an outburst, his family wanted to reverse the adoption and sent him to a respite home. Jaliek went missing after being picked up from respite care during a night alone with his adoptive father. Join Jenn, Court, and Bec in their first episode as they discuss the gut-wrenching disappearance of 12-year-old Jaliek Rainwalker and their opinions of his adoptive parents as well as the system that placed him in their care. This episode also recognizes Welsey A. Wamsganz who went missing on November 20, 2010, from Lake Placid, New York.Listen to the Episode for all the details and visit finalminutespodcast.com for pictures and sources!https://www.buzzsprout.com/1750188/8414842-ep-1-missing-jaliek-rainwalker.mp3?blob_id=38350702&download=true

Zagadki Kryminalne

Dzieciństwo Jalieka Rainwalkera było jednym z najgorszych jakie można sobie wyobrazić - zaczynając od narodzin z uzależnieniem od narkotyków, aż po życie w kilku domach zastępczych. Chłopak miał poważne problemy behawioralne, ale w 2002 roku przez krótki czas wydawało się, że życie zaczyna układać się po jego myśli - został adoptowany przez Stephena Kerra oraz Jocelyn McDonald. 5 lat później jednak nagle zaginął bez śladu. Podejrzenia padły na rodziców adopcyjnych, którzy od dłuższego czasu próbowali unieważnić adopcję i pozbyć się syna.

Missing Mini #7 - Jaliek Rainwalker

Memento Mori

Jaliek Rainwalker had trouble fitting into families due to some behavioral issues and sadly he ended up bouncing around foster homes most of his young life. When he ended up with new adoptive parents, Joceyln McDonald and Stephen Kerr, you'd think this was his forever home until one day, Jaliek was missing. Vanished into thin air. Did he run away, commit suicide, or was his disappearance due to something more sinister?

What happened To Jaliek Rainwalker?

Crime Obscene

This episode contains information of crimes involving children. Listener discretion is advised.*While Recording this episode I was so wrapped up in the mixing I did not realise that the airing of the podcast would coincide with 13 years to the day since Jaliek went missing until it was already mixed and ready, this is why it will be even more imperative to please share this episode as far and wide as you can*On the night of the 1st of November 2007, Jaliek Rainwalker was last seen by his adoptive father. When Stephen Kerr woke up the next morning, Jaliek was nowhere to be seen. With his bed made up to apparently look like he was sleeping, Stephen realised his son was gone and would report Jaliek missing to the police.When Police arrive, Stephen informs them that a duffle bag, a stuffed animal that belonged to his adopted son and some clothes were missing, and most  harrowing of all; a note is found seemingly written by the twelve year old stating he was leaving. But what looks from the onset as a runaway child, soon spirals down a much sinister path. Both family and loved ones of Jaliek insist he had not run away, and the investigation soon turns into a suspected murder with none other than his adopted parents in the spotlight.In this episode, we uncover the suspicious vanishing of 12 year old Jaliek Rainwalker, a young boy who from his very birth had trial after trial levelled at him and uncover the information from the day he was reported missing, through to the avenues of investigation that led police to looking closer to home in the disappearance.Crime Obscene is a monthly true crime podcast hosted by Aaron Burke.Music intro: written and performed by Aaron BurkeAdditional music by DJM Films:shorturl.at/bkwLMSOURCES:https://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Gone-5-years-still-no-answers-3998658.php https://www.greenwichtime.com/local/article/Gone-5-years-still-no-answers-3998658.https://www.reddit.com/r/UnresolvedMysteries/comments/aganzd/jaliek_rainwalker_11_years_missing_and_no/ https://cbs6albany.com/news/local/10-years-after-his-disappearance-no-sign-of-jaliek-rainwalker https://www.troyrecord.com/news/jalieks-grandmother-charged-police-probe-possible-new-evidence/article_ac79fa61-a4ef-5285-97de-3199b0b298e5.html https://poststar.com/news/local/police-new-report-sheds-light-on-jaliek-rainwalker-case/article_c054d8c0-8c1d-11e2-ac08-0019bb2963f4.html https://www.stamfordadvocate.com/local/article/Jaliek-focus-turns-to-killing-4114960.phpinterview source:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAR2ulBYjFc&t=1s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09su--x2u8Q

Tune in and let us know your thoughts!Disclaimer: We are not experts, and this episode is not meant to discredit authorities who have worked on these cases or accuse anyone of being involved in the murder of Sherri Rasmussen or the disappearance of Jaliek Rainwalker.
