Rank #3: Pt 3: The Life and Kidnapping of Steven Stayner - Dennis Parnell

Podcast cover
Read more

For seven years, Steven Stayner lived a life with Kenneth Parnell he believed had been given custody of him by a judge. Like far too many children, Steven would be hurt by the man he had come to think of as a father, and would suffer terrible sexual abuse. But he also lived a life with friends, school, animals and hobbies as he traveled with Parnell across California. Often upset that the coverage of his life only focused on the bad parts we discuss Steven’s life during the time he was kidnapped and take aim at society’s judgements of abuse that continue to keep victims silent.

You’ve heard the story of what happens to 7 year old Steven Stayner when he doesn’t come home from school on December 4, 1972.  Now hear it from the perspective of his parents, the city of Merced and police. From their vantage point, Steven would disappear from the face of the earth with no clues and no witnesses.

Podcast cover

On Sept 17th, 2006, Fourpeaked Mountain in Alaska erupts marking the first eruption for the long-dormant volcano in at least 10,00 years.  Also an audio tape of a private speech by Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány is leaked to the public in which he confessed that his Hungarian Socialist Party had lied to win the 2006 election sparking widespread protests across the country. 

But in the evening on this date, in a small unincorporated community of riverside county, three people lost their lives to what looked at first to be a fire of accidental nature.  Upon further investigation we see a horrendous triple homicide that would not have full closure until twelve years later.  Join us in this week's episode of California True Crime as we discuss the first Part of The Pinyon Pine Murders
