Description

At any given time in the world, there are thousands of unsolved murders. Most of them will never be solved. The first 48 hours of a homicide are the most crucial to an investigation. Eventually, leads dry up, witnesses become less cooperative, and cases go cold (unsolved). Meanwhile, detectives continue receiving new homicide cases which push older ones to the back. After a case goes cold, it quickly becomes yesterday’s news. The public and the media will forget about the crime and move onto the next crime story.

But do you know who won’t forget about a cold case? The victim’s family and friends. They won’t forget because their case is more than a case file or news story. The victims were sons, fathers, mothers, daughters, or friends. Catch my Killer is a podcast that focuses on the victim's surviving family and friends who give a voice to those who no longer have one. If you are listening and can help bring a killer to justice, please call in your tips. Even the smallest clue could be large enough to break a case wide open.

Episode 91: Jessica Masker

Episode 91: Jessica Masker

2021-07-1801:06:40

This week’s story involves the disappearance of a young woman named Jessica Masker. She disappeared in 2013 and no one has seen or heard from her since. On April 15, 2013. Jessica’s aunt had given her a ride to her cousin’s residence. After Jessica arrived at her cousin’s home, the two argued. Jessica left and walked to a BP gas station at 5061 E Washington St in Indianapolis. After she arrived, she called her brother for a ride home. Her last words to her brother were that “two men came at her wrong.” He told his sister he couldn’t get her and then asked her to call their mother for a ride home. After Jessica left the gas station, no one ever saw or heard from Jessica again. I also want to mention the area is in a dangerous part of Indianapolis often frequented by drug dealers and prostitutes. For unknown reasons, Jessica didn’t ask her mother for help. She left the gas station for an unknown destination. Jessica vanished eight years ago. What happened to her? If you know anything about Jessica’s disappearance, please contact the Indianapolis Police Department at 317-327-6184 or you can contact Indianapolis Crime stoppers at 317-262-TIPS or Crime Stoppers USA at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Beverly was going to meet with her friend Barbara and then spend the afternoon with another friend. Barbara arrived at 1:25 p.m. She knocked on the door and then heard a thump coming from upstairs. It sounded as if someone was moving furniture. After no one responded, Barbara returned home. She spoke to her friend Margie and told her Beverly never answered the door. The three girls originally planned on spending the day together. Margie called Beverly’s grandmother and told her Beverly didn’t answer the door to Barbara.The grandmother called Beverly’s dad Ted Jarosz and shared her concern. Ted left work to check on his daughter. He arrived home loud music playing. He went upstairs to check on his daughter. He found Beverly lying face down. Someone had murdered his beloved daughter.Nearly six decades have passed since Beverly was murdered at 10921 Thornton Avenue in Garfield Heights, Ohio. Today, the case remains cold.

Unfortunately, she wouldn’t live long enough to achieve her dream of attending college and becoming a nurse. During the early morning hours of July 6, 2007, Sarah was shot to death. Her family believes Sarah told her boyfriend she was moving out of her apartment, breaking up with him and starting a new life. Betsy said that Sarah’s boyfriend had previously threatened with harm if she ever tried to leave him. It all started with a 911 call just before 4 a.m. The call came from the boyfriend’s mother. She stated, “My son shot his girlfriend, my son accidentally shot his girlfriend, he believes she is dead, they were fighting over the gun.”The boyfriend claimed Sarah was suicidal and wanted to kill herself. Allegedly, she picked up his gun and threatened to shoot herself. He claims while trying to take the gun from her, she was accidentally shot dead. The case was brought in front of a grand jury, but they refused to take the case to trial. I spoke to Betsy Wallace and Angela Walters, who are two of Sarah's family members. They continue seeking justice for Sarah.

This week’s story comes from East Dublin, Georgia and involves a man named Brian Samples who vanished from his hotel room and was later found deceased. According to his family, law enforcement hasn’t officially ruled Brian’s death a homicide. But his family is 100% positive someone murdered Brian. According to East Dublin Police Chief Bill Luecke, Brian’s death is questionable. Brian’s last contact with his family was a text on July 6, 2019. Lori Duncan, who is Brian’s sister, said he texted that he had met up with some bad people. He was last seen alive on July 6 at the Red Carpet Inn in East Dublin where he had been staying. The family unsuccessfully spent many hours trying to find Brian. His body was discovered in a heavily wooded area in October 2019. Law enforcement confirmed Brian's death in November 2019. Brian was a skilled carpenter and Christian. Although he had battled drug addiction, his sister Lori told me Brian was a good man who loved his family and God. Brian’s family is convinced he was killed by someone he knew. For this story, I spoke to Brian’s sister Lori Duncan. She told me about Brian’s battles with his addiction and his love for his family.What happened to Brian? Do you know? Perhaps you can help his family by providing a tip.

Episode 87: Jenny Maxwell

Episode 87: Jenny Maxwell

2021-06-2001:06:26

Jenny Maxwell was born in Brooklyn on September 3, 1941. She was the only child of Norwegian immigrants. She came from a large family. Many of her relatives settled in Michigan. Early in life, Jenny knew she wanted to become a Hollywood star. In 1958, she was discovered by director Vincente Minnelli. Although Jenny was just a teenager, Vincent knew she had star power. Jenny appeared on television shows like The Twilight Zone, Dr. Kildare, and Bonanza. In 1961, she played a spoiled rich girl in an Elvis Presley movie called Blue Hawaii. After a ten year run in Hollywood, she decided to give up acting and focus more on motherhood.She married a wealthy attorney named Evrin “Tip” Roeder on February 17, 1970. The marriage was a nightmare for both Roeder and Jenny. They argued, cheated on each other and were headed for divorce court after a decade together. On June 10, 1981 around 3 p.m., a gunman approached the couple and forced them inside Jenny’s condo. The gunman shot Jenny twice in the head and shot Tip once in the stomach. Jenny died immediately, but Tip managed to stagger away and get help. He died two hours later. A detective at the scene told a lone reporter he thought it was a robbery gone bad. And since 1981, that’s where the story has ended. Unknown to the public, the case was actually solved. But no one ever picked up the story and went any further with it. For all these years, everyone has always thought the murders of Jenny Maxwell and her husband Tip Roeder were unsolved. This wasn’t true. Fast forward to 2019. Jenny and her first cousin Vera were close as children. Vera was older and would spend time babysitting Jenny. Their fathers were brothers. Vera loved her little cousin and was devastated when Jenny was murdered. For years, she wondered what had happened to her little cousin she used to babysit. Vera’s life would eventually come to an end in 2019. However, before she died, she had one final request. She asked her son Buddy Moorehouse to find out what happened to her beloved cousin. She had to know before she died. Vera’s son Buddy Moorehouse learned that Jenny’s homicide was solved in 1981. But for all these years, Jenny’s family didn’t know because the information was never made public. Before Buddy’s mother died, he was able to give his mother the answers she had so patiently waited several decades for.For this unique story, I spoke to Buddy Moorhouse, who gave me many details about his famous cousin’s death and how it was solved.

This week’s unsolved homicide story comes from Arkansas and involves the brutal murder of a 19-year-old woman named Melissa Witt. Melissa worked at a local dental clinic. On December 1, 1994, Melissa Witt parked her car in the Fort Smith, Arkansas Bowling World parking lot. Her mother, Mary Ann Witt, was a member of the bowling alley’s bowling league. Melissa often met with her mother at the bowling alley so they could have dinner together. Melissa was abducted from the Bowling World parking lot. She was struck in the head.

On January 13, 1995, two hunters were walking through the Ozark National Forest. Around the Turner Bend area, the men found Melissa’s naked body. Someone had strangled her. For this story, I spoke to LaDonna Humphrey who is the Executive Producer of the Witt project and Aric Mitchell who is with the Ft. Smith police department.

This week’s story involves a double homicide that occurred on October 12, 2001 in Cincinnati, Ohio at 1278 Quebec Road. Frank Drees and his friend Vicki Waters were out at a bar enjoying some time together. While at the bar, an ex-boyfriend of Vicki’s confronted Frank and Vicki. There was a verbal confrontation that ended with the ex being kicked out of the bar. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the couple had asked a friend for a ride home. The friend said she would drive them home after she used the restroom. But after using the restroom, Frank and Vicki had already left. She assumed they found another ride.

This week’s story is about a Claysburg, Pennsylvania mother named Fawn Marie Mountain who vanished in 2012. Fawn and her girlfriend Heather spent the day in East Freedom, Pennsylvania helping Heather’s parents prepare their butcher shop for hunting season. Fawn, Heather, her brother Mike and his girlfriend, Stephanie cleaned the butcher shop and sanitized the tools. Before Fawn and Heather went home, they stopped at her brother Mike’s house. Fawn sat in the car with Mike’s girlfriend, Stephanie. Fawn said she was going to go home and watch some scary movies. Stephanie never saw Fawn again after that conversation. Fawn’s cousin Bridgette Gill told me that everyone loved her. She was a friendly and easygoing young woman, just trying to make her way in life. She said Fawn had a hard life. She had been physically and sexually abused in the past and had a daughter named Kayden who died. She was stillborn. Until 2009, Fawn had never engaged in a relationship with a woman until meeting Heather Dibert in an Altoona Pennsylvania nightclub called “The Island.” The two connected and started a relationship. Fawn ended up moving to Claysburg with Heather. Heather and Fawn had a volatile relationship. Fawn tried to leave many times, but would always end up returning to Heather. Unfortunately, no one reported Fawn missing until 2017, which was five years after she disappeared. I asked Bridgette if she thought Fawn was alive. She told me there was no way she was alive. Fawn didn’t drive or have a job. She relied on a social security check and had nowhere to go. Although the Pennsylvania State Police haven’t named any persons of interest, they believe there is foul play involved in Fawn’s disappearance. Heather was the last person to be seen with Fawn. She claimed Fawn had just left with no explanation. And that’s where the case stands today. For this episode, I spoke to Fawn’s cousin Bridgette Gill. Do you know what happened to Fawn? If you know anything about her disappearance, please contact the Pennsylvania State Police at (814) 696-6158 or Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers at Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers at 1-800-4PA-TIPS.

On May 29, 2011, after not being able to reach her parents, Beth Stephenson asked her husband to stop by and check on them. What he discovered, was horrific. The Stephensons, considered one of the most beloved and admired couples in Boone County, had been murdered. Here is a piece from the Cincinnati Enquirer about the case:May 29, 2011, the Stephensons were slain in brutal fashion – bludgeoned and stabbed – and then, whoever killed them staged a bizarre scene. Detective Coy Cox, who’s headed the Boone County Sheriff’s investigation since Day 1, told me he’s been “guarded and careful” about the details he’s released from the start. What he will say is that the bodies had been posed. Items inside the house had been moved around. “There wasn’t one room in that house that wasn’t staged,” Cox saidSo who and why would anyone kill an elderly couple who devoted their lives to helping others? Detective Cox informed me the killer or killers spent some time in the home after killing the couple. I found this unusual because most killers commit their crimes and then leave immediately. Before he retires, Detective Cox is committed to solving this double homicide. For this week’s story, I spoke to Beth Stephenson, who is the daughter of Bill and Peggy Stephenson. I also spoke to lead detective Coy Cox of the Boone County Sheriff’s department. If you are listening and know the answer to this mystery, I would ask that you contact the Boone County Sheriff’s Department with your tip. There are several ways to do so. You can call 859-334-8496 and leave a tip. Or if you are incarcerated, you can call 844-210-1111. For additional information about Bill and Peggy Stephenson, you can visit the In Loving Memory of Bill and Peggy Stephenson Facebook page. You can also send your tip by email at StephensonTip@BooneCountyKy.org There is also a substantial reward available for the person who can lead the capture of this unknown killer or killers.

On May 29, 2005, a young man named Scott Moody was preparing to graduate from Riverside high school. Scott lived in Bellfontaine, Ohio with his mother Sheri and sister Stacy. However, on the day of graduation, authorities received a 911 call and arrived at Scott Moody’s home. What authorities would discover was horrific. They found the bodies of Scott Moody, his mother Sheri, and 14-year-old Paige Harshbarger and 19-year-old Megan Karus who were Scott’s friends. Authorities would also find the bodies of Scott’s maternal grandparents Gary and Sheryl Shafer. The Shafers lived in a separate residence near their grandchildren and daughter. Someone had also shot Scott’s sister Stacy. She would be the only survivor. In 2 hours, the Logan County Sheriff’s department ruled the case a murder suicide and that Scott had killed his family before killing himself with a .22 caliber rifle. But there was a problem. When Stacy recovered enough to speak, she was asked who shot her. She said that she was shot by a gray haired man wearing a blue shirt. The police would dismiss her statement and tell her Scott was the shooter. Although Stacy and several witnesses saw a middle aged gray haired man, the Logan Sheriff’s department has always dismissed this person as the shooter. For this episode, I spoke to attorney and author Rob St. Clair who wrote the book titled Saving Stacy. Rob represented Scott’s father and also got to know the family well. He has spent many hours researching this case, studying court documentation and the sheriff’s documentation about the case. In his book, Saving Stacy, Rob provides many details unknown to the public about this case.To order a copy of Saving Stacy, visit Amazon.com.

He also worked at the university’s medical school.On the night of June 19th, Shelton was planning on booking a hotel room for a friend’s bachelor party. But Shelton didn’t want to go alone. He wanted a friend to go with him. Another friend named Mark Richardson agreed to ride with Shelton. The two set out that evening to find a hotel room for their friend’s bachelor party. The plan was to pick out several rooms and then let the friends decide which room they wanted. However, no one seems to know what happened to Shelton on that evening. The next morning, Shelton’s mother Peggy received a call from his employer. He failed to show up for work and never made it home on June 20, 2001 as expected. His family immediately knew something was wrong. Mark always let his family know about his whereabouts. He would also never miss work. He had also borrowed his brother’s car, which was also missing. The family filed a missing persons report after the required 48 hour wait. The family contacted Mark Richardson who seemed aloof. He said Shelton brought him home and then left. Shelton’s family didn’t believe Richardson. They suspected he was somehow involved in Shelton’s disappearance.If you know anything about Shelton’t death, please contact the tip line at 803-427-4209, or send an email to wilveria.sanders@yahoo.com or call the Richland Sheriff’s department at (803) 576-3000.

Episode 74: Lin Rushing

Episode 74: Lin Rushing

2021-03-1440:471

This week’s story begins on August 31, 2018 when Larry Rushing came home to find his wife Lin deceased. She was found on the kitchen floor with a laceration to her neck and “defensive wounds” to her right hand and forearm. The murder weapon was found near his wife's bodyLin was a 75-year-old grandmother with no known enemies. Who would kill this beloved grandmother? The alleged killer identification would be surprising. Authorities arrested a 50-year-old man named Gary Shane Clinton, with first-degree murder. Clinton was Lin’s former son in law. Stacey had been divorced from Clinton for over a decade. Stacey told me that she believes Clinton killed her mother out of revenge. It seems Clinton wanted to hurt his ex-wife by murdering her mother. By why did he do this after so many years? Did he harbor this anger for all these years? As of this recording, Clinton hasn’t gone to trial yet, so he’s technically not guilty of the murder. However, The Abilene Police Department forensic unit has collected over 50 pieces of evidence, which was enough to charge Clinton with killing his former mother-in-law.Clinton was married to Stacey Magovern many years ago. She had no communication or any involvement with him since there divorce. She had moved on and started a new life. However, Clinton was no stranger to law enforcement. He has been arrested over 40 times. Be sure to Stacey Magovern share the details about the death of her mother.***Opening dialogue provided by KTXS 12 news (https://ktxs.com/)Please also visit my website for more information about my true crime and paranormal newspaper columns at www.themarcabe.com.

In 2019, I interviewed a gentleman named Grant Inman. He is a unique individual who spent a decade working in the death business with his father. He has seen homicide victims, suicide victims, people who have died in automobile accidents and those who have been fortunate enough to die of natural causes in their sleep. So who is Grant Inman? Well, he isn’t a fireman, a police officer or a paramedic. Grant experienced much death while working for his father at the family funeral home. He also hosts an excellent and unique podcast called My Funeral Home Stories. If you are fascinated by true crime or if you have ever wondered what it’s like to be around the deceased, then you need to listen to his podcast. I found the episodes addictive. To get an idea of his podcast, I played a small clip from an episode and then followed up by asking him questions about what it was like working in the funeral home business. I think most of us have a morbid curiosity with death. It’s one of life’s darkest mysteries. To quote the late singer Jim Morrison. “No one here gets out alive.” To listen to Grant's podcast, listen on iHeart radio (https://www.iheart.com/podcast/1119-my-funeral-home-stories-30994443) or wherever else you get your podcasts. You can also follow him on IG at https://www.instagram.com/pomoandkitsch/.Note* And for this week’s episode, I would also like to mention that some listeners may find this week’s content disturbing.

Kimberly Louiselle was last seen on March 20, 1982. After meeting with her boyfriend, he broke up with her. Unfortunately, Kimberly didn’t have a way home. Her boyfriend went to work and left her at his house. She would end up at a payphone trying to call a few friends for a ride home. When she didn’t come home on the 20th, her parents reported her missing the next day. Her body was found a little over three weeks later in a field that was within ten miles of her home. Kimberly was nude. Someone had beaten her, savagely raped her and then strangled her. It’s believed that her body had been dumped their within several days of being located. This meant is what likely that someone held her hostage for possibly the past three weeks. What’s even more disturbing is that there were two other young women who were also murdered around the same time as Kim. They were identified as Anna Marie Doroghazi and Christina Lynn Castiglione. All three homicides remain unsolved. It’s unknown if the killings are related. Law enforcement believes it possible a serial killer killed the young women. I spoke to Cindy Arthurs who discusses the death of her older sister Kimberly Louiselle and Detective Angela Hunt of the Michigan State Police. It’s been nearly 40 years since Kim was raped and murdered. She said there was DNA but was too disintegrated to use. However, she said there was DNA recovered from Christina Castiglione. Cindy said authorities haven’t matched the DNA to anyone. IF the murders of Christina and Kimberly are related, identifying Christina’s killer could lead to the person who killed Kimberly. Do you know what happened to Kimberly Louiselle? If you do, please contact Detective Angela Hunt of the Michigan State police at 810-227-1051.
