Rank #1: Judy Weichert

Podcast cover
Read more
On the morning of July 28th, 1984, Judy Weichert set off on a jog, unaware that it would be her last.

Judy, a 33-year-old Oklahoma native, had been married to her husband for less than a year. The two were happy together, and seemed to have built a nice life for themselves in OKC. However, on this random Saturday morning, it would all fall apart.

While out on her jog, Judy would be attacked by a vicious stranger. After being raped and stabbed numerous times, Judy was left for dead... yet she would cling to life long enough to tell a witness a few details about the man that had killed her. Police would link her case to another nearby, but more than 35 years later, Judy's case remains unsolved.
Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan

Special thanks to Rachael Smith and Mandi Newland Davis, who were kind enough to chat with me about Judy's still-unsolved case. They've both been super helpful and informative, and have both spent time moderating a Facebook page about Judy's story.

In the mid-1970s, a mysterious intruder known as the Visalia Ransacker began to terrorize families in Visalia, California. Eventually, his crimes escalated to attempted kidnapping, resulting in the deaths of one man and a near-shootout with police. Shortly thereafter, a criminal known as the East Area Rapist would surface in Sacramento, creating a terrifying legacy that persists to this day.

Rank #3: The Original Night Stalker (Update)

Podcast cover
Read more
This is an update regarding the first story I tackled on "Unresolved," that of the serial offender that went by several names: Original Night Stalker, East Area Rapist, Golden State Killer, and Visalia Ransacker.
On April 24th, police in Ventura County, California, arrested 72-year old Joseph James Deangelo for the murders of Charlene and Lyman Smith. They were just two deaths attributed to this unknown killer, this mysterious EAR/ONS/GSK, among over a dozen.

Upon his arrest, law enforcement announced a press conference for this four-decades old cold case. Investigators and websleuths alike are desperate to learn any details about this little-known Deangelo, who wasn't even on the radar of law enforcement more than a week ago.

Rank #4: The Daytona Beach Killer

Podcast cover
Read more
Between December of 2005 and December of 2007, a serial killer terrorized sex workers in Daytona Beach, Florida.

45-year old LaQuetta Gunther was the first to be targeted, falling prey to this unknown individual on Christmas Eve 2005. 34-year old Julie Green would follow just a few weeks later - on January 13th, 2006 - and the killer would strike again a month later: killing 35-year old Iwana Patton at some point in February.

Nearly two years would pass, in which the Daytona Beach Police Department urgently tried to find the killer. Unfortunately, he would surface once more in December of 2007 to murder 30-year old Stacey Gage, before disappearing once and for all. Police believe that the suspect has since moved on from the region, but a cavalcade of suspects and theories continue to haunt those affected by the case...

Rank #5: Bardstown - Revisited (Part Three: Crystal Rogers)

Podcast cover
Read more
On July 3rd, 2015, Crystal Rogers was last seen by anyone. She had been planning to spend the evening with her boyfriend, Brooks Houck, and had excitingly told a friend about finally enjoying a child-free night.

Crystal, a mother of five, had been dating Brooks for a few years. The two had one child together (an infant son named Eli), and even though their relationship wasn't perfect, it seemed okay from the outside looking in.

When Crystal's maroon Chevy Impala was found along the Bluegrass Parkway two days later, Crystal was reporting missing. Her disappearance would spark the third major criminal investigation in as many years, and - to this day - Crystal's whereabouts remain unknown.
This is the third part of a new Unresolved series, Bardstown - Revisited. I originally covered Crystal's story back in February of 2016, but have expanded upon it significantly, and have rewritten/rerecording everything.

On February 13th, 2017, two teenage girls were murdered in Delphi, Indiana.

Liberty German and Abigail Williams - "Libby" and "Abby" for short - were two regular 8th graders that were enjoying a day off from school. Trying to take advantage of an unusually warm winter day, the two girls went hiking on one of Delphi's historic trails, overlooking Deer Creek.

As the girls walked along the Monon High Bridge, they were accosted by a strange man - who police believe murdered them a short time later. In some of their final moments, the girls managed to record audio and video of this man, but he has gone unidentified in the years since...

Rank #7: Brittany Phillips

Podcast cover
Read more
In the summer of 2004, an 18-year-old moved back to Tulsa, Oklahoma. She had actually grown up in Tulsa and gone to high school there, but had moved away the year prior to attend college.

Having become homesick, the following Spring she made the decision to move back to Oklahoma and attend school there, in order to be closer to her friends and family. It was a decision that her friends and family welcomed at the time, as it meant that she would be a constant presence in their lives once again.

Unfortunately, it was this decision - to move back home - which put this young woman in the sights of a killer. Close to fifteen years after her violent death, her loved ones - primarily her mother - continue to fight for justice, as her killer has never been identified, and her case remains as unsolved today as it was back in the Fall of 2004...

Rank #8: The Millbrook Twins (Part One: The Known)

Podcast cover
Read more
In March of 1990, a pair of twins - named Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook - disappeared from their hometown of Augusta, GA. 

By all indications, they were just a regular couple of teenagers. They came from a large immediate family, but spent most of their time at home: they sang along to songs on the radio, spent most of their free time lounging around in front of the television, and attended church every Sunday. 

But on one particular Sunday - March 18th, 1990 - the twins walked through the neighborhood, hoping to collect bus fare from their godfather. They visited their godfather, then their cousin, and finally their sister, before stopping by a convenience store to buy some snacks. When they left the store, they were never seen again. 

I am joined by the younger sister of the twins, Shanta Sturgis, as well as the hosts of the podcast The Fall Line. 

Part one of three.

Rank #9: Lake City Quiet Pills

Podcast cover

On July 17th, 2009, a Reddit user named /u/2-6 announced that their friend - another Reddit user named /u/ReligionOfPeace - had passed away.

This announcement was made on Reddit to very little fanfare. Other than serving as a moderator on a creepy subreddit, /u/ReligionOfPeace was known for being an old, gruff weirdo, who claimed to have a storied military history.

However, over the coming months, curious web-sleuths began to dig into the history of these two Reddit accounts, and found that they were each linked to a website. This website - named Lake City Quiet Pills - had hidden messages buried in its code, which hinted at the site being much more than meets the eye...

Rank #10: Tiffany Nelson

Podcast cover
Read more
In June of 1994, a nine-year old girl was preparing to live out her summer dreams. Tiffany Elizabeth Nelson, a native of Augusta, Georgia, was a tomboy that loved to ride her bike while wearing frilly dresses. She had suffered the loss of her mother just two years prior, and was living with her aunt, Ora, in her home along Getzen Drive - just a few miles away from where Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook had gone missing four years beforehand. 

It was the first Monday of summer vacation, when Tiffany rode her bike down to a corner convenience store just a few blocks away. She was last seen at that gas station at approximately 10:00 AM, filling up her bike tires with air. When she went missing, very little was done to find her - or to investigate any of the potential offenders living in the area. 

Over the next eleven years, Tiffany would just become a footnote for the area: a cautionary tale for neighborhood children. But in 2005, a forester made a discovery roughly twenty miles south, which proved that there was more to Tiffany's case than met the eye...

Rank #11: Bardstown - Revisited (Part One: Officer Jason Ellis)

Podcast cover

In the early morning hours of May 25th, 2013, an officer in the small town of Bardstown, Kentucky was headed home.

That officer - Jason Ellis - was a Cincinnati native who had moved to the region a little less than ten years prior. He was married, with two sons, and had left behind his childhood dreams of becoming a professional baseball player to become a member of law enforcement.

But before Officer Ellis could make it home, he was murdered in cold blood - the victim of an ambush, just minutes from his home. To this day, it remains unknown who targeted Jason Ellis... or why.
This is the first part of a new Unresolved series, Bardstown - Revisited. I originally covered Jason's story back in January of 2016, but have gone back and added in new information, rerecorded everything, and changed things significantly.

On the evening of July 24th, 2018 - a Wednesday - 39-year old Andrya DeGhelder was a no-show for her shift at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center. This was very unlike Andrya, a divorced mother of one, who had a reputation for being reliable and punctual.

Her coworkers contacted a friend, who tried to get in-touch with Andrya. Eventually, after paying Andrya an unsuccessful house call, this friend contacted the local sheriff's office, who paid a visit to Andrya's home in Grovetown, Georgia.

There, police would find a chaotic crime scene, which they believe pointed to an abduction. Over the next week or so, investigators and volunteers would work to raise awareness for Andrya's disappearance, highlighting her past struggles, but a shocking discovery just a week later would shock this quiet community...

A search of the area found no trace of the two missing girls, and the ensuing investigation also failed to turn up any leads. When the truth of the girls' disappearance was revealed later that year, it forced this region to face an ugly truth: a killer lived among them...

Rank #14: The "Hughes" Family (Part One: Suzanne Sevakis)

Podcast cover

Suzanne Sevakis, born in 1969, was the oldest of four children. When her mother went to prison for a minor infraction, Suzanne and her siblings were overseen by their guardian, newfound stepfather Brandon Cleo Williams. Sadly, that was just an alias for a wanted fugitive known as Franklin Delano Floyd. 

As she moved throughout the country, growing up with the man that she would call both father and husband, Suzanne would go by many names: Suzanne Davis, Sharon Marshall, and Tonya Hughes among them. But her story reached an end when she was murdered in Oklahoma City in 1990, a crime that is unsolved to this day. 

However, that tragic hit-and-run accident would unearth a can of worms, a decades-long mystery that investigators are still trying to piece together today...

They never made it to their destination - a nightclub located in a neighboring town - despite being seen just down the block. Over the next two months, the police had to rely on some spotty eyewitness testimony as their only way of finding the girls. 

The next seventy-five days would be torture for the family of the girls, who would receive a crushing blow when a couple of middle-aged beekeepers made a gruesome discovery in the final days of January.

In March of 2014, 26-year old Chase Massner disappeared from a friend's home. Chase, an Iraqi war veteran who lived in Canton, Georgia. Struggling to make ends meet and provide for his family, Chase took a job at a Quik-Trip in Kennesaw, located just a mile or so away from one of Chase's friends named Brad Clement. 

Chase and his wife, Amanda, had been having issues in the months before Chase's disappearance. Constant financial pressure put a strain on their relationship, and Chase was spending less time with both her and their two daughters. In the days before his disappearance, he had been spending time with his mother, Stephanie Cadena. 

On March 27th, Amanda dropped Chase off in Kennesaw. He went to stay the night with his friend, Brad. By Brad's own recollection, Chase was looking for a drug known as roxicodone. The next day, March 28th, Chase was gone. Brad claimed that Chase disappeared, but allegations would continue to sniff around Brad for years afterwards.

Podcast cover

On the morning of November 16th, 1987, a pair of hunters discovered the skeletonized remains of a young woman just a stone's throw away from Shaw Creek - in the woods just south of Eureka, South Carolina. These remains have never been identified, and serve as the jumping-off point for an investigation that now spans over three decades. 

In 1991, the remains of a local woman - Jackie Council - would be found roughly half-a-mile away. Then, in 1993, another unidentified Jane Doe was found just off Shaw Creek. As if that wasn't enough, the body of a Georgia woman that went missing in 1989 - named Risteen Durden - was found just a few miles away in 1992.

The state these women were found in point to a single suspect: a killer that terrorized young black women in Aiken County. However, until now, this killer hasn't even had a name... and while there are many of suspects to look at, none of them completely fit the bill...

On May 7th, 1982, 54-year old Joan Kipp returned home from her job as a guidance counselor. She was planning to spend the weekend away with her husband, at their Connecticut summer home, to celebrate Mother's Day. But when she arrived home, she saw that she had received a package in the mail: a cookbook, which she believed to be an early Mother's Day gift.

Unfortunately for Joan, the cookbook had been hollowed out. Inside, a three-barreled "zip gun" had been created, which shot out at her as soon as she opened it.

Joan would become the only casualty of an unknown assailant, who mailed out several of these packages between 1982 and 1996. Despite police developing a couple of leads, they were never able to determine the identity of the Zip Gun Bomber... or their motives...
