While a loved one goes missing, their families are forced to go through an emotional turmoil that I would not wish on my worst enemy. Between wondering where they are every day, having to cope with not knowing what happened to them and not being able to grieve properly for their loved one, many families describe it as being in a constant state of limbo. Unless you have been unfortunate enough to have a loved one go missing, it is i...

I'm sure at one time or another, we have all tried to run away from our problems and while this certainly is tempting, it rarely works. Whether you are trying to escape from a debt, mental health issues, family problems or legal troubles, life often finds a way of catching up to us and forcing us to face our problems head on. Some people chose to physically run away from their lives and create a new identity for themselves, but...

Finishing high school is the ending of one chapter of one's life and the start of another. While some leave school not knowing what they want to do with their lives, some have their entire future mapped out, know exactly what they want and how they plan on achieving it. Some will go on to achieve their goals, while some people's lives may take them on a totally different path that the one that had planned. The young woman w...

There is a lot we don't know about serial killers. We don't know what drives them to kill innocent people, how they can get any pleasure from it at all or how many of them go undetected for years. Sadly, in some cases, we don't know exactly how many victims they have, meaning that the families of their victims go without justice. And while some serial killers love to brag about their crimes, some will never confess to t...

Most of us make little notes to ourselves to remember important dates or upcoming events. We might type them into our phones or computer, write them on the back of our hand, or scribble them onto a notepad or in a diary of sorts. Sometimes, these notes only make sense to the person who wrote them, and they may have to transcribe their meaning to others. The FBI came across a note like this in 1999, in the pocket of a deceased man&#...

The Mississippi river is over 2,000 miles long and flows through ten states in America. The river is vital to several industries for its drainage system, its ability to generate hydroelectric power and for the various species of fish that swim in its waters. It is where water skiing was invented and was also the setting in many of Mark Twain's novels. The Mississippi holds a lot of historical relevance, cultural importance and ...

Being at one with nature is said to be a very calming, relaxing and mindful experience. Escaping everyday life and taking in the beautiful, natural sights that this world has to offer. While there are some dangers out in nature, many are either known to us, avoidable and can be handled safely. What no one would expect to come across, however, is a killer with such evil intentions. A killer whose senseless crime has sent shockwaves ...

The festive period can be a hard time for a lot of people for a lot of different reasons. Perhaps for financial reasons, as well as triggering old memories or remembering those who aren't here to celebrate with us. This last Christmas was different for all of us but the Koecher family, it was yet another year without their loved one who went missing less than two weeks before Christmas. Let's uncover the unsolved disappeara...

It’s frustrating when we are so close to achieving something, but it still feels out of our reach, or that one piece of the puzzle just hasn't fallen into place yet. There are so many true crime cases where we seem to know so much, but still have a lot of unanswered questions, and todays case is no exception. I've said it before and I'll say it again; sometimes, it only takes one person to hear the right information for...

Some unexpected things can happen on a night out. You may get more drunk than you thought you'd get, plans may change and you could meet new people that leave a lasting impression. People may warn us to be careful, but we never, and should never, expect anything bad to happen to us, but sadly, the most innocent of night's out can result in tragedy. Three young women back in the 1960's went out for a night of dancing, so...

A lot of people don’t like driving late at night but for others, it's essential. Some people enjoy being able to take their usual route within excessive traffic and other road users holding them up. Some people have to drive miles in the dark every day, but some only have a short way to go until they get home. This was the case of the young woman we will be talking about today. She only had 7 minutes left of her journey before ...

Christmas is, for many, the happiest time of the year and is filled with laughter, joy and hope for the future. For some, it brings back awful memories and is another reminder of that their loved ones aren’t there with them and for people who lost friends or family during the festive period, it can be even more difficult. For one mother, Christmas Day will always be the anniversary of the last time he spoke to her son. Two days lat...

Attending parties as a teenager is a rite of passage. Some might be quiet and go off without a hitch, others may involve alcohol, and some become out of control. Tragedies have occurred at these kinds of parties over the years, but maybe none quite as mysterious as the case we will be discussing today. Join me and Alexa from the Great Unsolved as we uncover the suspicious death of Kurt Sova. 

If you have any information on the circu...

Substance abuse has the power to completely ruin people's lives and their relationships. Loved ones are often unwilling to help enable them, become tired of all the broken promises and sadly, many people are estranged or have been disowned by their family because of their addiction. This kind of scenario could possibly be the reason why a young girl has been unidentified for almost 20 years, after she sadly lost her life to an ...

You never know what goes on behind closed doors. The most unsuspecting people can harbour the most dreadful secrets, even the most successful people can have skeletons in their closet and just because someone appears to have the perfect family, they might still be dealing with unresolved issues from their own childhood. Issues that get progressively worse until they finally snap and commit a crime so awful that they make it onto on...

Predators can be found all over the world and come in many different forms. Some are humas, looking to exploit others for personal gain, while others are animals that rely on their ability to hunt in order to survive. When a young woman was violently killed back in 2008, it was assumed she was attacked by a great white shark, quite possibly the most feared animal in the ocean, but is it possible that her real killer lives on dry la...

The transition from childhood to adolescence is as hard for parents, as it is for the young person.  Not knowing how much, if any, responsibilities to give them and questioning every decision you make, worrying whether or not it was the right one. One such decision is the choice to leave your child home for the first time, something which usually doesn't result in any major problems. For one mother, this decision would have the...

As a parent, it's natural to want to give your child all the things you didn’t have when you were growing up and to give them the best start in life that we can. That's why it seems so inconceivable that a woman who, to the outside, seemed like the perfect wife and mother, would decide to disappearance start a new life...or did she? Let's uncover the unsolved disappearance of Joan Risch. 

If you have any information rela...

Starting high school is daunting for a lot of teenagers, and what most of them want, more than anything, is to fit in and for their peers to accept them. So, when an invitation to party with slightly older and more popular students comes up, for most, it would be a no-brainer. This was certainly the case of two girls back in 2012, who were looking forward to cutting loose with some boys they knew from school. There was absolutely n...

When violent crimes happen in small towns, local people are understandably terrified that a killer is walking amongst them. Is it their neighbour, a friend or god forbid, a family member?  Everyone wants to know who the killer is but in today’s case, we must start by trying to figure out who the victim is. Let’s uncover the unsolved murder of Sam Doe. 

 

If you have any tips on Sam's true identity or the circumstances surrounding...
