The Lyon Sisters

In 1975, 2 sisters, 10-year-old Katherine Lyon and 12-year-old Sheila Lyon, disappeared in Wheaton, Maryland. The sisters had gone to the local mall to see the Easter decorations and eat lunch, but they never made it home. A number of people came forward to report that they had seen the two girls. One man even came forward, saying that he saw the sisters being abducted and put into a car. But, he later admitted that he was lying. There were fake ransom demands from people preying on the grief and agony that the parents were experiencing.Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the infamous case of the Lyon sisters. A number of suspects emerged over the years, including one man that the police dubbed "the tape recorder man" who had been seen with the sisters at the mall. It took many decades, but the police finally zeroed in on a man who crossed their path early in the investigation. And it was this man, Lloyd Welch, that turned about to be the culprit behind what happened to the Lyon sisters.You can help support the show at patreon.com/criminologyAn Emash Digital production Learn more about your ad choices.

Monique Daniels and Jhessye Shockley

In this episode, we're discussing two different cases, the disappearances of Monique Daniels and Jhessye Shockley. Both are very similar cases but with very different outcomes. Monique Daniels, a 15-year-old from Moore, Oklahoma, disappeared in 1992. In 2011 5-year-old Jhessye Shockley disappeared from Arizona. The parents of both victims were charged and convicted on child abuse charges.Join Mike and Morf as they discuss these two cases. In both, suspicion was cast on a parent and/or stepparent, and siblings told the authorities very damaging information. But, only in the case of Jhessye Shockley was a murder conviction obtained. Even though many people believe that the mother and stepfather of Monique Daniels were involved somehow in her disappearance, to date, neither has been charged with murder.You can help support the show at patreon.com/criminologyAn Emash Digital production Learn more about your ad choices.

Clark Perry Baldwin

Clark Perry Baldwin is a man who has been linked to a number of murders in different states. In this episode, we are discussing a number of murders that are solved, but we have no idea who the victims are, while others remain unsolved. One common thread in these cases is DNA, forensic genealogy, and the potential for that technology to finally close out some of these cases and others. But there’s another common thread connecting some of these cases, and that is a man named Clark Perry Baldwin.Join Mike and Morf as they discuss Clark Perry Baldwin. Baldwin was a long-haul trucker who, at times, also drove a taxi. He is currently awaiting trial on murder charges in Tennessee. But, he is believed to be linked to multiple Jane Does, including Bitter Creek Betty and the Sheridan County Jane Doe. We will have to wait to see how his trial progresses and also how technology may link him to other cases.You can help support the show at patreon.com/criminologyAn Emash Digital production Learn more about your ad choices.

The Pillowcase Rapist

The Pillowcase Rapist was a moniker given to a man who committed over 40 violent assaults on the East coast of Florida from 1981 to 1986. This individual was extremely cunning and cautious and staked out apartments that were well hidden from view. He crept inside the residences of unsuspecting women, usually by climbing through open windows or simply opening sliding glass doors that had been left unlocked and would scale balconies to get to higher units. He usually attacked professional women in upper-middle-class apartment complexes. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the case of the pillowcase rapist. In many ways, his crimes show many parallels to the crimes of The East Area Rapist / Golden State Killer Joseph DeAngelo. Both men were good at avoiding the law. The police had trouble finding out who The Pillowcase Rapist was. Thankfully, a crime scene technician did an excellent job preserving some evidence in the days before DNA was used. In 2020, a DNA link was made to a man named Robert Eugene Koehler and he was arrested as The Pillowcase Rapist. He has not yet faced a jury of his peers but, the authorities seem pretty confident in the evidence they have against him.You can help support the show at patreon.com/criminologyAn Emash Digital production Learn more about your ad choices.

Simpson case had the eyes of the nation been so fixated on a homicide. The search for Bonny’s killer took detectives on an eleven-month odyssey across the country and through Hollywood's underbelly of hustlers, drug addicts, and would-be hitmen. It would be the most expensive murder investigation in LAPD history to date. This is the story of Robert and Bonny’s toxic relationship, her shocking murder, and his chaotic trial. Did actor Robert Blake kill his wife? Or was the murder someone else's vendetta?From Wondery, and the team behind the hit series Hollywood & Crime (The Dating Game Killer, The Wonderland Murders, Death of Starlet) comes a six-part series about love, obsession and fame gone wrong. Co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Josh Lucas.Listen by subscribing to Wondery Plus in Apple Podcasts or the Wondery App: wondery.fm/Criminology_TEOBLB Learn more about your ad choices.
