Rank #1: The Tragic Disappearance & Murder of Hailey Dunn

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Podcast cover

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 #5: The February Slayings, Part One: Mildred May

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

The abduction and murder of 7-year-old Ashley Nicole Estell sent shockwaves through Plano, a Dallas suburban outlier. The community was as void of crime as a Texas city gets but the murder of a young child changed everything. 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.

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.

Rank #9: 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.

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?

Rank #12: 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 #14: 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.”

The newscast audio heard this episode is from the NBC5/KXAS Television News Archive at the University of North Texas Special Collections. The video can be accessed here: https://digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc914078/m1/?q=henry%20lee%20lucas#track/1

Rank #15: 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 #16: City of Hate: The Bizarre Lust Murders

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

Rank #17: Secret Hope: The Disappearance of Sharon “Sarah” McCully

Podcast cover
Read more
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 #18: 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.

Podcast cover

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.

Rank #20: Debra Jackson (Orange Socks), Sandra Mae Dubbs, & The Bloody Route

Podcast cover
Read more
“It was just a convenient place to dump the bodies. There is just a hell of a lot of sin that goes up and down that highway” - Williamson County Sheriff Jim Boutwell, referring to Interstate 35 in 1981.

From Oklahoma City to San Marcos, Texas, there is a 400 mile stretch of I-35 where multiple homicides occurred, or bodies were discarded, from the years 1976 to 1981. Twenty-one homicide victims. Few arrests. And several victims remain unidentified to this day. It’s unlikely to law enforcement that all these depraved acts were committed by a single individual, especially considering the distance involved; that makes it likely, then, that there were several individuals taking advantage of opportunity and who left an unbelievable count of slain victims in such a short period.

To some law enforcements officials, the route became referred to as “the Bloody Route.”
