Rank #1: 043 - The Bizarre Disappearance of Bryce Laspisa

Podcast cover
Read more
Bryce Laspisa was the average American college student. He was bright, charming and liked to have fun at every possible time. During the Summer of 2013, he stayed at home with his parents, eagerly anticipating his return to Sierra College, in Rocklin, California.

Within two weeks of his return, in August of 2013, Bryce's friends and girlfriend were growing concerned about his drinking and odd behavior. Over the course of a three day period Bryce would give away valuable items, break up with his girlfriend and embark on a mysterious drive into desolate area of California. On the night of August 29th, after sitting in Buttonwillow for nearly thirteen hours, he began his drive home to Laguna Niguel where his worried parents waited.

Just after 2am, Bryce called home to say he was going to stop and rest. Just three hours later, his SUV would be found flipped on its side and Bryce was nowhere to be found. Nearly five years later and the circumstances surrounding Bryce's disappearance continue to confuse and confound his family, investigators and everyone who examines his case. What happened to Bryce Laspisa? Did he choose to run away from his life and start a new? Is it possible that he was suicidal? Did the combination of alcohol and drug use result in an altered state of consciousness? Could a head injury have left him without his memory, or, did Bryce become the victim of a random act of violence?

Join host Steven Pacheco as he explores this disturbing and tragic story, which many have described, as the male version of Maura Murray.

Rank #2: 003 - The Vanishing of Lauren Spierer

Podcast cover
Read more
In the early morning hours of June 3rd, 2011, twenty year old Indiana University sophomore Lauren Spierer vanished without a trace after a night out with friends. In the aftermath of Lauren's disappearance, everyone becomes a suspect; her friends, her boyfriend and yet unknown figures.

Three years later, Indiana University student Hannah Wilson goes missing and is later found murdered. The similarities between the murder of Hannah Wilson and the disappearance of Lauren Spierer are startling. Did Lauren meet the same fate at the hands of the same man, or was it the man seen driving the white truck the night Lauren vanished? Or, perhaps, one of Lauren's friends knows more than he is saying.

Rank #3: 044 - The Abduction & Murder of Kristi Cornwell

Podcast cover
Read more
August 11th, 2009 was a hot and humid day in the North Georgia town of Blairsville. Thirty-eight year old Kristi Cornwell was visiting with her parents that summer as she had recently embarked on major changes in her life. She’d left her career as a probation officer, and was pursuing a new journey into the medical field. She had gotten divorced a few months earlier, but in recent times, had begun dating a new man with whom she hoped she might develop a future.

Due to a lower back injury sustained during a fall, Kristi had taken to late evening walks. They eased her pain and, in the evening, the hot and sticky weather wasn’t nearly as intense. Her mother didn’t like her walking so late, but Kristi assured her she could take care of herself, and besides, they were in Blairsville, a picturesque southern town with less than a thousand residents.

They’d live there all their lives, and Kristi, if nothing else, always felt safe there. That night, with her phone in her pocket and an earbud in, she spoke to her new boyfriend, Douglas, as she walked the streets of her home town. Then, suddenly and without warning, Douglas heard a commotion and distinctly heard Kristi cry out “Don’t take me.” An instant later, the phone emitted only the sound of static as Douglas screamed her name.

In the days, weeks and years that followed, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation would cover hundreds of acres of land in a desperate search. They will uncover connections to other instances of abduction, and other attempts in the area. These clues will lead them on a multi state search for a light colored SUV and a suspect described by previous would be victims. For authorities, it’s a race against the clock that will ultimately end in tragedy and the monster who many believe commited this crime, will cowardly spare himself the requirement to face justice and to answer for his acts when he takes his own life during a three hour standoff with Atlanta Police. Yet still, questions remain, and though authorities believe they’ve found their man, they cannot prove it. Even after Kristi’s remains are discovered, by her own brother, just miles from the site of her abduction.

Join host Steven Pacheco as he explores this complicated, tragic and frustrating case in hopes of sorting through the confusion and answering the question: Who murdered Kristi Cornwell?

Rank #4: 042 - The Disappearance of Tiffany Daniels

Podcast cover
Read more
Twenty-Five year old Tiffany Daniels was a talented artist living in Pensacola, Florida in August of 2013. Saddened by her boyfriend moving out of state, and overwhelmed with financial difficulties, Tiffany was struggling to find her way. Her worries seemed as though they might be ending as a friend's father rented a room from her home, making her more financially secure and while her boyfriends exist was difficult, she was excited to visit him in Austin and to see the culture which thrives there.

On August 12th, 2013, Tiffany told her supervisor that she needed to leave early and may need the rest of the week off. Tiffany exited work at 4:43pm and was never seen again. Over a week later, her vehicle was found abandoned in a parking lot on Santa Rosa island, not far from her home. In the five years since she vanished, there have been many theories and alleged sightings, though nothing can be confirmed.

What happened to Tiffany Daniels? Did she choose to run away from her problem? Was she overwhelmed to the point that suicide became an option? Could she have accidentally drowned off the shore of Florida? Was she abducted and moved into the world of human trafficking or is it possible that Tiffany was the victim of a homicide, be it a random act of violence, or possibly perpetrated by someone she knew and trusted? Join host Steven Pacheco as he examines this tragic case and asks the difficult question: Where is Tiffany Daniels?

Rank #5: 071 - The Horrifying Murder of Paula Sladewski

Podcast cover
Read more
Twenty-six year old Paula Sladewski was making plans. After several attempts at a modeling career, leading to some success, she wanted to get back in the game and see what could happen. She hoped to start moving on her plan after she returned from her New Years Eve trip, but unfortunately, Paula would never make it back.

Along with her boyfriend, Kevin, Paula flew to Miami, Florida to see a New Year's Eve concert, after which the couple planned to spend a few days on south beach before heading home. They'd had their problems in the past, but somehow, the couple had always found their way through it. The concert went well, and things were moving smoothly until the morning of January 3rd, 2010.
Paula and Kevin attended Club Space, a nightlife hotspot in North Miami. After a few hours of drinking and dancing, Kevin tried to get Paula to leave but she wanted to stay. Kevin was ultimately thrown out of the club and took a cab back to their hotel room. Paula exited shortly after, was engaged in conversation by a man and disappeared.

When Kevin awoke and found Paula missing, he began trying to find her, spoke to police and even hired a private investigator. Police didn't seem overly concerned about a young woman who had been missing for only a few hours. When Sunday night came, police had their hands full with a terrible crime scene: someone had been placed in a dumpster and burned so severely that the individual was completely unrecognizable.

While police tried to solve their murder case, and Kevin tried to locate Paula, neither side knew that they were working on the same case.

Who murdered Paula Sladewski and burned the beautiful young woman beyond recognition? Join host Steven Pacheco as he explores this disturbing and haunting case.

On October 9th, 2014, 37 year old Rico Harris began a 1,000 drive from Alhambra, California to Seattle, Washington. Rico was moving in with his Fiancee and it was a major step in a new life away from the demons of his past.

In the early morning hours, Rico sent a last text message and mysteriously vanished. Two days later his car was found in the Lower Site parking lot of Cache Creek in Yolo County California. The investigation to discover what happened to Rico will uncover multiple pieces of evidence showing Rico's presence in the area, and possibly his disoriented state of mind but opinions and theories will fall on opposite sides, with investigators believing one way, and Rico's family firmly believing the other.

Rank #8: 033 - The Disappearance of Heather Elvis

Podcast cover
Read more
In the summer of 2013, twenty year old Heather Elvis had an affair with Sidney Moorer, a much older married man she met through her job. When Sidney's wife, Tammy, found out, the relationship was severed and Heather became the subject of threats and insults. By December, Heather was moving on with her life and hoping to leave Sidney and Tammy in the past.

She went out on a date and was excited for her future. In the early morning hours of December 18th, Heather mysteriously vanished. Her car was found abandoned at a remote boat landing not far from the Moorer's home. Over the next few weeks, Police investigated the possibility that Sidney and Tammy may have been involved in Heather's disappearance.

The two were charged with murder, as well as indecent exposure, kidnapping and obstruction of justice. Most of the charges were dropped before going to trial, leaving the Elvis family wondering why. The Moorer's pointed the finger at Heather's father, accusing him of murdering his own daughter. The Elvis family felt the Moorer's were responsible. Others began to wonder if Heather could have run off, or if her date that night may have had dark intentions.

What happened to Heather Elvis? Did she choose to run away from a troubled life to start over? Does her date know more than he is saying? Did Heather's father lash out against his own child? Or, do Sidney and Tammy Moorer possess all of the answers investigators have been seeking? Join host Steven Pacheco as he explores this complicated and confusing case in hopes of answering the question: What happened to Heather Elvis?

On March 15th, 1989, seventeen year old Tracey Lynn Kirkpatrick went to work in Frederick, Maryland. The high school senior was focused on saving money to contribute to her college fund, and liked the independence working afforded her. Sadly, Tracey would never return home.

At approximately 10:50pm, a security guard working at the mall in which she was employed made a grisly discovery. Tracey had been stabbed to death by an unknown assailant and there were no suspects. Her family was devastated but hopeful that the culprit would be brought to justice.

Three months later, an anonymous caller told a haunting story about his involvement in Tracey's murder. Investigation into the caller would unveil a bizarre story which some believe, and others chalk up to a cruel prank.

Thirty years later and Tracey's case remains unsolved. The suspect list is slim, rumors are rampant and there are even some who believe the entire investigation was purposefully botched to cover up for the son of a well known member of the community.

Who murdered Tracey Lynn Kirkpatrick and will he ever face Justice?

Nine year old Anthonette Cayedito heard a knock on the door in the middle of the night. Dressed in her pink nightgown, she approached the door and vanished. When her mother woke up the next morning, she discovered that Anthonette was missing.

Police had little to work with other than reports of a mysterious vehicle seen at the home in the early morning hours. The case grew cold almost immediately, but a year later a disturbing phone call reignited the search. Unfortunately, little if anything could be found.

Several years later, a waitress called in a report of having seen the missing child, who at this time would have been fourteen. While the story was compelling, authorities could not confirm that it had been Anthonette.

For thirty-three years, Anthonette Cayedito has been missing. Some believe she was abducted by a stranger, others by someone she knew and trusted. Then there are those who believe that Anthonette's mother knew much more than she told.

Rank #11: 069 - The Disappearance of Brandy Hanna

Podcast cover
Read more
Thirty-two year old Brandy Hanna had recently gotten out of a six year long relationship. Having lived with her fiance, Ray McAdams, she couldn't help but develop feelings for a friend, Zeke Lankford. The situation became complicated and ultimately Brandy moved out, choosing to find an apartment to rent with Zeke.

Just weeks after leaving Ray, Zeke told Brandy that he was leaving her. The young woman was now living alone, in an apartment in a bad part of town that her mother, Donna, didn't want her staying in. Brandy decided to use this alone time to put her head straight and figure out what she wanted to do.

On Friday, May 20th, 2005, Brandy worked the morning shift at Alex's restaurant. When her mother arrived that afternoon, she headed home and planned to go out to the beach for the weekend. Brandy would never make it to the beach and instead would vanish under bizarre circumstances.

The investigation would find a witness who described the man and vehicle who had arrived to pick up Brandy the night she disappeared. The only problem was the vehicle and description fit two men: Zeke Lankford and Ray McAdams.

For the next fourteen years, the investigation will grow cold and heat up. Lies will be uncovered and alibis destroyed. A suspect will die prematurely and another will admit to trying to frame him. A dedicated investigator will uncover a shoe believed to have belonged to Brandy and charges will be filed for obstruction of justice, and yet, all these years later, the truth of what happened to Brandy remains concealed.

Join host Steven Pacheco as he examines this difficult and heartbreaking case.

Rank #12: 057 - The Disappearance of Jeramy Burt - Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more
Thirty-three year old Jeramy Burt was putting his life back together.  After an affair with his lawyer, his wife, Kim, filed for divorce and the two went their separate ways, though they were forever bonded through their young daughter.  Jeramy regretted his mistakes and worked hard to make amends and regain Kim's trust.  After his lawyer tried to coerce him into lying under oath in an attempt to frame her assistant, Jeramy recorded their conversations and testified against her in front of the grand jury.

While his ex-lawyer, and former girlfriend, served a year in prison, Jeramy and Kim reconnected and began to repair the damage to their relationship.  In February of 2007, they were living together and talking about future possibilities.  Unfortunately, his old girlfriend had gotten out of prison and was pressuring Jeramy to come back to her.  While Kim was in Las Vegas, for a work seminar, Jeramy spent the weekend with family back in his hometown of American Falls, Idaho.  Upon returning, on Sunday evening, Jeramy spoke with Kim and then told his father he was going to meet a friend.  He never came back.

A series of bizarre texts were sent to Kim's cell phone, from Jeramy's phone.  They alleged that he was moving on with his life, leaving town and planning to start a new life under a new identity.  It made no sense, and Jeramy might leave Kim, but he would never leave his family, or his beloved daughter.  Unfortunately, since the texts were from Jeramy's phone, and he was an adult, there was little police could do.  However, when Kim reported that he'd left in her car, they did file reports about her missing vehicle.After several strange events, Kim's car was discovered three months later.  It had been abandoned in the desolate Bruneau desert, one hundred miles south of Boise and it had been set ablaze.  Little evidence could be recovered from the scene, but this disturbing find finally caused the Boise Police Department to launch an official investigation.

What happened to Jeramy Burt and how could his disappearance possibly be connected to that of another Idaho man, with whom he was acquainted, three years earlier?  Join host Steven Pacheco as he examines this disturbing disappearance and highly complicated case in the first of this two-part episode.

Rank #13: 054 - The Mysterious Death of Dorothy Kilgallen

Podcast cover
Read more
Dorothy Kilgallen was one of the most well known and prominent reporters in American history.  Her tenacious personality and intense columns examines major stories of her time, including the murder trial of Dr. Sam Sheppard and the Cuban Missile Crisis.  While her readers loved her dynamic style, powerful figures in Hollywood and Intelligence Agencies were not fans of her work.

After the assassination of President, and her close friend, John Kennedy in November of 1963, Dorothy dedicated her work to uncovering what she believed to have been a massive conspiracy and cover-up.  She had a contact in the Warren Commission who leaked information to her, which she in turn published.  The FBI began keeping a file on her, and tapping her phone after Dorothy refused to reveal her sources. Dorothy became the only journalist to get a private, one on one interview with Jack Ruby, the man who shot and killed Lee Harvey Oswald.  In the days and weeks leading up to her death, Dorothy told friends she was going to break the case open and she had plans to travel to New Orleans to meet with an informant.  Sadly, Dorothy would be found dead in her home just days before this trip, and what information she had gathered would never be revealed as her research files were never found.

The official ruling in Dorothy's death was that she died from an accidental overdose, a lethal combination of alcohol and sleeping pills.  While this was the official story, many believe that Dorothy was murdered to halt her investigation.What happened to Dorothy Kilgallen and why, today, is her name so rarely recalled?  Join host Steven Pacheco as he explores the intriguing and vibrant life of the woman once dubbed "The Most Powerful Voice in America."

Rank #14: 073 - The Vanishing of Deanne Hastings

Podcast cover
Read more

Thirty-five year old Deanne Hastings was finally putting her life back together. After a long battle with bi-polar, a divorce and time spent in an in-patient treatment facility she was back on the rise. She was in love, enrolled in school, looking forward to the future and excited to establish stronger relationships with her children.

Living with her fiance, Mike Tibbets, in Spokane, Washington, life just seemed to be back on the right track. However, on the night of November 3rd, 2015, Mike returned home to an empty house. He found a note from Deanne explaining that she'd be running to the store and she'd be back soon. She didn't return and as hours passed, Mike began trying to track her down.

Deanne's car was found in a parking lot, locked up. He purse and cell phone were inside, though her license and credit cards were not. Over the course of the next thirty-six hours, Mike will stake out the car, print up fliers, try to track his fiancee down and run into multiple people who believe they'd seen her. When all else fails, Mike files a report with the Spokane Police Department and the search begins.

The investigation raises many questions about Deanne's mental state at the time of her disappearance, but also the people she was known to have spent her last known hours with, including two men who tell a bizarre story about where they last saw Deanne, and how they came into possession of her credit cards and license.

Rank #15: 066 - The Mysterious Death of Mitrice Richardson

Podcast cover
Read more
Twenty-four year old Mitrice Richardson wasn't making sense. She was sending cryptic text messages and indecipherable social media posts. Her mother was concerned, and on September 16th, 2009, she received a call explaining that Mitrice had been arrested in Malibu.

After speaking with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Mitrice's mother was told her daughter wouldn't be released until the morning. With plans of picking her up the next day, her mother went to sleep. When she awoke, she was startled to discover Mitrice had been released and now, no one knew where she was.

Over the course of the next year the anger between the family and Sheriff's department continued to grow as lies were uncovered and Mitrice's family felt the Sheriff's department was conducting a coverup. On August 9th, 2010, eleven months after she disappeared, Mitrice's body was recovered down a remote Canyon some six miles from the Sheriff's station. The discovery sadly confirmed that Mitrice had died, but the question of how would become the center of a firestorm of controversy.

Join host Steven Pacheco as he examines the details of this deeply tragic and confusing case.

Rank #16: 083 - The Death of Nancy Argentino

Podcast cover
Read more
Twenty-three year old Nancy Argentino had left her life in Brooklyn behind to hit the road with her new boyfriend, wrestler Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka. It was a whirlwind romance that would ultimately end in violence.

After a violent incident involving police in January of 1983, Nancy's family begged her to stay home and avoid Snuka. Unfortunately, Nancy did not heed their advice and went back with Snuka. Just four months later in May of 1983, Nancy was rushed to a hospital in Allentown, Pennsylvania where she later died as the result of head trauma.

Snuka alleged that Nancy had fallen and hit her head, though this was contradicted by the official autopsy report and the fact that Snuka gave more than six different stories of what happened that night. Snuka walked and was not charged, though why no one could ever explain.

Over the course of the next thirty years, rumors and speculation ran rampant about what may have happened. Finally, after thirty two years, Snuka was charged with murder but would never stand trial. To this day it is hotly debated, how did Nancy Argentino die and what role did Jimmy Snuka play in her death?

Rank #17: 023 - The Murder of Faith Hedgepeth

Podcast cover
Read more
Nineteen year old Faith Hedgepeth was a junior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in September of 2012. Born in Warren County North Carolina, she was a member of the Haliwa-Saponi Native American Tribe and dreamed of becoming a doctor and one day returning home to contribute to her community. On September 6th, she had a busy day of classes followed by rushing for a sorority and going to the library with her best friend and roommate, Karena Rosario. After working on a project, she and Rosario went back to their apartment to change and then went out to a local bar, called the Thrill.

In the early morning hours of September 7th, Faith and Rosario left the bar and went back to their apartment. A strange series of texts and phone calls began, and around 4am, Karena left in the company of another Chapel Hill student, leaving Faith home, allegedly asleep, with the apartment door unlocked. When Karena returned the next morning, she found a grisly scene. Faith had been brutally beaten to death, the room was covered in blood and her half-clothed body was left exposed. Rosario called 911 and when police arrived, they immediately began investigating the homicide, discovering that Faith had also been sexually assaulted.

Over the next five years, many suspects were questioned and had their DNA taken for comparison. Rosario faded from the public eye, refusing to talk or conduct any interviews about the case, leading many to believe she may have more knowledge about the crime than she has stated. In addition to Rosario, her former roommate and ex-boyfriend Eriq Takoy Jones became a prime suspect considering his violent past and threats he had previously made against Faith. No one was above suspicion, and anyone who had spoken with Faith in the days and hours before her murder were considered possibilities. Surveillance cameras from the Thrill showed her interacting with several men that night, all of whom were questioned by investigators. Ultimately, the Chapel Hill Police Department possessed an abundance of evidence but no one they could make it stick to. Recently, a strange accidental voicemail left by Faith the night of her murder and a DNA Phenotype digital composite of the killer have been released, raising more questions than answers.

Who murdered Faith Hedgepeth, and for what reason was this beautiful and brilliant young woman so violently murdered? Was it a total stranger out looking for trouble? Did an ex-boyfriend choose this night to take out his anger? Did Eriq Takoy Jones make good on his threat, or did her best friend and roommate, Karena Rosario, play a more vital role in the crime? Join host Steven Pacheco as he explores the details of this case and attempts to sort through the plethora of suspects in an attempt to answer the haunting question: Who murdered Faith Hedgepeth?

Rank #18: 079 - The Disappearance of Laureen Rahn

Podcast cover
Read more
Fourteen year old Laureen Rahn had the apartment all to herself. Her mother, Judith, was out with her boyfriend and with spring break kicking off, Laureen decided to invite a few friends over.

When Judith arrived home, sometime after midnight, something was wrong. All of the lights in the apartment building hallways were off and she found her front door unlocked. Checking over the apartment, the back door was both unlocked and open. She looked into Laureen's room and saw a figure sleeping in her bed. Unfortunately, this turned out to be Laureen's friend and she had no idea where Laureen could have gone.

Over the course of the next forty years speculation has run rampant while evidence has been in short supply. What became of Laureen Rahn, was she abducted by a stranger and trafficked or perhaps lured out by someone she knew and trusted?

Rank #19: 067 - The Disappearance of Amy Wroe Bechtel

Podcast cover
Read more
Twenty-four year old Amy Wroe Bechtel was putting the future together. Along with her husband, Steve, they had moved to the picturesque town of Lander, Wyoming and in the Summer of 1997, they had just closed on the purchase of their first house.

On July 24th, both had the day off from work and while Steve planned to go rock climbing, Amy was going to run errands and then go running, her favorite activity. This day though, it was partially work as she was mapping out the path of a 10k she was organizing. Amy drove up into the Shoshone National Park and never returned.

Steve returned home and after waiting for hours, grew worried and called the Sheriff's Department. Amy's car was discovered parked on the side of the road but there was no sign of the young woman. Amy's disappearance kicked off a massive search and rescue effort but after days of searching and yielding no results, investigators began looking at her husband.

Over the next twenty-two years many theories would develop, Steve's connection to investigators and his in-laws would be severed and a convicted killer would become a possible suspect. Join host Steven Pacheco as he asks what happened to Amy Wroe Bechtel on July 24th, 1997?

Rank #20: 061 - The Abduction of Angela Hammond

Podcast cover
Read more
Twenty year old Angela Hammond was living in rural Clinton, Missouri.  Everything in her life seemed to be coming together:  she'd fallen in love, gotten engaged and was pregnant with her first child.  The bright, sweet and beautiful young woman was excited for the days ahead and the future she was building.

On April 4th, 1991, she had plans to meet her fiance, Rob, downtown for a night out.  As the evening wore on, she found herself getting tired and decided she'd rather just go home.  She stopped at a payphone at the edge of a supermarket parking lot and called Rob to cancel their plans.  In the midst of this conversation, Angie was abducted by a man in a green pickup truck.

Angie screamed into the phone.  Rob sped over to the scene and caught sight of the truck.  As it passed him, Rob saw Angie struggling with the driver and heard her screaming his name.  He spun his own truck around and gave chase, but in doing so he had severely damaged his transmission and the last thing he saw were the abductor's tail lights vanishing into the darkness.Who abducted Angie Hammond twenty-seven years ago, and what became of her?  Join Host Steven Pacheco as he examines this haunting story.
