Rank #2: Gary & Stephanie Gillette, Part One: Change Of Plans

Podcast cover
Read more
Gary’s children were supposed to arrive at the home of their Father and Step-Mother, Stephanie, the evening before the couple were brutally slain in the early morning hours of Saturday, December 14th, 1985.

The three sisters, ages 8, 11, & 14, wouldn’t discover their Dad and Step-Mom’s fate until that Sunday, but they all knew something wasn’t right. The home phone gave nothing but a busy signal and Gary’s answering service hadn’t heard from him; Gary, though, is said to have never gone more than an hour without checking for calls.

This is the story of the events that took place that weekend.

Rank #3: The Savage Slaying of Brittany McGlone

Podcast cover
Read more
In Wood County, Texas in May of 2007, Brittany McGlone was murdered, seemingly as she slept, in her boyfriend’s home while everyone who live in the house was away. Nothing else in the home was disturbed or stolen and there were no signs of forced entry. Alibis for everyone who lived in the house were checked out and verified, apparently, but whoever violently bludgeoned Brittany to death most likely had knowledge of the home and the habits of the folks therein. A potentially strong suspect was identified, one with a connection to Brittany’s boyfriend’s family, but police were ultimately unable to make an arrest. Is he responsible for Brittany’s slaying or was it someone not even on law enforcement’s radar? Nineteen-year-old Brittany's killing has devastated her family who struggle to pick up the pieces and who view law enforcement working Brittany's case as combative to their efforts...and for good reason.

A perpetrator was finally brought to justice, or so residents thought; when the man convicted of killing Ashley was exonerated by DNA, the case’s status changed to unsolved.

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

Rank #8: The February Slayings, Part One: Mildred May

Podcast cover

After the abduction and murder of Carla Walker in February of 1974, the police loosely theorized a possible connection to two prior unsolved homicides. These murders shared some similarities with Carla’s, one of which is the month that the crimes took place. The press seemed to be more enamored with the idea of a connection than police, or at least more than the police led on, and without hesitation dubbed the homicides “The February Slayings.” Mildred May fell first in this sequence of unsolved cases.

Don Martinson returned home from jury duty on March 31st, 1980 to find his wife slain on the floor of the couple’s bedroom at their home in North Dallas. Don was devastated by most accounts but insight into the couple’s marriage provided by friends painted their relationship as one that had its problems. When Don refused to speak with investigators, they began wondering what else he was hiding. His alibi, though, was solid. When he decided to talk finally, his attorneys provided police with a dream lead. Since the case remains unresolved – cold – was the Dallas Police’s number one suspect the man who murdered Debbie?

Many legends and mysteries exist around the West Texas City of El Paso but, perhaps, no one story from the city is more mysterious than the 1957 disappearances of William and Margaret Patterson. The case is complicated and convoluted and theories about what happened to the successful couple range from the absurd to the sinister. For the first several weeks after they vanished, the Patterson’s were thought to have taken off on an impulsive vacation but when their prized feline, Tommy, emerged disheveled and confused, neighbors and friends began fearing the worst.

On August 7th, 1996, six-year-old Katherine Korzilius got out of her mother’s car to walk the rest of the way home. The walk was only about an eighth of a mile and when her daughter didn’t return, Nancy Korzilius was worried. She went looking for her daughter and found her lying unconscious in the road in the opposite direction from where she was walking. Katherine succumbed to her injuries later that night. Law enforcement and the Korzilius’s private investigator couldn’t make sense of her death; the case was cold from the very beginning. Katherine’s father, Paul, was the manager and close friend of musician Jon Bon Jovi, who later immortalized the tragedy in his song “August 7 4:15.”

Rank #13: Jared Chavis, Part One

Podcast cover

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

If you have any information about the disappearance of Jared Chavis, please contact the Houston Police Department at 832-394-1840. Crime Stoppers has a $10,000 reward for information leading to the charging or arrest of an individual or individuals involved in the disappearance of Jared Chavis. Information may be reported by calling 713-222-TIPS (8477), submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org or through the Crime Stoppers mobile app. All tipsters remain completely anonymous.

Rank #14: Suzie Mages, Part One: Denton’s Lost Innocence

Podcast cover

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

Rank #15: The Abductions & Murders of Heidi Seeman & Erica Botello

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

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

Rank #17: The Killing Fields of Montgomery County

Podcast cover
Read more
Between 1980 and 1983, the slayings of five young women baffled Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Investigators. Similarities between a few would have police theorizing a connection. The most striking and grisly commonality shared among three of the victims was the fact that when they were found, the victims were ablaze. Another unfortunate and investigation-stifling commonality between four of the five victims was a serial-confessor sometimes called “The One-Eyed Drifter.”

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

Leads were scarce as the crime scene was contaminated but a couple months later in nearby Skellytown, another murder which bore similarities took place. Though that lead and the few others police had seemed promising at first, including new information that investigators uncovered as late as 2017, Elsa’s murder is still unsolved.

The Tragic Disappearance & Murder of Hailey Dunn

Podcast cover

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

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

On July 4th, 1988, Sally McNelly and Shane Stewart disappeared sometime around midnight. Their bodies were found miles away from where they were last seen months later. Investigators had little to go on and, as was common at the time when no answers could be found, Satanism found its way into law enforcement’s theory. There was no evidence of devil worship or occult activities but the media, including the television show Unsolved Mysteries, jumped all over the chance at helping insert the societal phenomenon of Satanic Panic into Shane and Sally’s narrative. It’s likely part of the reason their case remains unsolved today.

The Savage Slaying of Brittany McGlone

Podcast cover
Read more
In Wood County, Texas in May of 2007, Brittany McGlone was murdered, seemingly as she slept, in her boyfriend’s home while everyone who live in the house was away. Nothing else in the home was disturbed or stolen and there were no signs of forced entry. Alibis for everyone who lived in the house were checked out and verified, apparently, but whoever violently bludgeoned Brittany to death most likely had knowledge of the home and the habits of the folks therein. A potentially strong suspect was identified, one with a connection to Brittany’s boyfriend’s family, but police were ultimately unable to make an arrest. Is he responsible for Brittany’s slaying or was it someone not even on law enforcement’s radar? Nineteen-year-old Brittany's killing has devastated her family who struggle to pick up the pieces and who view law enforcement working Brittany's case as combative to their efforts...and for good reason.

Taken for Ransom: The Kidnapping of Kim Leggett

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

Unintended Target: The Shooting Death of Marianne Wilkinson

Podcast cover
Read more
On December 9th, 2007, sixty-seven-year-old Marianne Wilkinson was murdered by an assailant who shot her multiple times as she opened her front door. North Richland Hills Police Investigators were stumped; Neither Marianne nor her husband had enemies, no one who had a reason to want Marianne dead. When a neighbor called police and told them that she thought she knew the reason Marianne was slain, a strong, circumstantial theory arose. However, without evidence, investigators were never able to make an arrest.

West Texas Boogie Men and the Forgotten

Podcast cover
Read more
West Texas in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s was seeing more violent crime than ever; the ultimate violence, murder, was certainly no exception. Many cases were solved throughout the region, cases that seemed to have the full attention of the press and of county and city law enforcement agencies...but what about the crimes that were never solved...and that saw little to no media coverage at all? Were the murders of Anna Smith, Iris Neal, and Dorothy Garlington somehow deemed less important than many others?

The Odessa Full Moon Murders

Podcast cover
Read more
From October 1968 to June 1971, five murders shook the residents of Odessa, Texas. Linda Cougot, Eula Miller, Ruth Maynard and Gloria Sue Greene in Odessa, and Nancy Mitchell in nearby Kermit. The deaths had the Odessa Police baffled. A writer for the Odessa American theorized that there was a madman on the loose who chose to perpetrate the slayings in close proximity to full moons. The police, however, likely didn’t buy that, but they did theorize that the murders were connected. After two separate men confessed and were convicted of two of the murders the uncertainty of who really killed the other three women remained...and still does to this day.

The Orchard Apartment Murders and the Butcher of Houston

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

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

Podcast cover
Read more
When Kathy Page’s father erected three signs along Interstate 10 implicating his daughter’s husband in her 1991 killing, it was out of frustration resulting both from the Vidor Police’s failure to put together a case against their number one suspect and the suspect’s blatant falsehoods and odd behavior. Eventually, years after Kathy’s murder, her parents took Steve Page to civil court alleging that he was responsible. On their third attempt at holding him accountable the only way they could, a jury found Steve Page to be responsible for the murder, but Vidor Police were never able to get a grand jury to indict him on criminal charges.

The Killing of Kathy Page Part 1: Staging a Murder

Podcast cover

In the early morning of May 14th, 1991 off the Interstate 10 access road in Vidor, Texas, a newspaper carrier discovered what appeared to be the scene of a tragic accident. When police arrived on the scene, however, everything was not what it looked like upon a first glimpse. It was too clean for an auto accident; something wasn’t right...and everything began pointing to the deceased woman’s husband, including his own actions and words. Kathy Page’s murder, though, remains unsolved to this day.

After Kristen Charbonneau disappeared on Thursday, August 11th, 2005, a person of interest quickly emerged – a good one – but Euless Police were unable to make an arrest. Kristen’s parents, out of frustration, took matters into their own hands and began a campaign to drive the suspect out of his silence. They either wanted him to break under pressure or provide police answers to the many questions they had. Frustrated, still, as the man refused to respond to them, the Charbonneau’s continued their quest and eventually, someone came forward with information.

The Abductions & Murders of Heidi Seeman & Erica Botello

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