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.

On June 4, 1988, Mary Morgan Pewitt, 25, was found murdered. Over 30 stab wounds were found on her body. During the early hours of the morning, Mary Morgan Pewitt's mother, Elizabeth Morgan, was returning the girls to Mary after after an overnight stay. No one answered. Amber, Mary's youngest daughter, peeked into her mother's bedroom window. Her mother lay dead on her bed covered in blood. She had been stabbed 30 times.The case remains unsolved three decades later, and has the distinction of being Comanche's only unsolved murder.The beginningMary had been married three times, the first being at the age of 16. There were two more marriages (Tim Allen and Stan Pewitt). The second ended in divorce and the third was heading in the same direction. Money was tight for Mary. She had been injured while working in a nursing home. This limited her employment options. Prior to her murder, she was working at Harold's Club, the only bar in Comanche, Oklahoma. Mary closed the bar on Friday night, June 3, and brought the receipts to the owner's home. She then went home to 611 N. 10th Street, where her boyfriend Randy was already waiting for her. He told police that they watched TV and he left at 12:45 a.m. that morning. Kira, Mary's daughter, told me he left to play video games with his 8-year-old son. Someone entered the home after Randy left and stabbed Mary in the neck and upper chest. In an attempt to defend herself, she suffered wounds to her arms and hands. Although she was found in a t-shirt, underwear, and socks, the autopsy showed she had not been sexually assaulted. A first cousin of Mary's, Becky Pentland, says the family refuses to let this case remain a cold case. Rebecca Pentland grew up with her cousin, Mary Morgan."She was just a world of fun. I just love her so much...I thought of her as a little sister."According to Pentland, "This wasn't like a gunshot or something like that. She was basically butchered and slaughtered. She was stabbed over 35 times. I want them in prison and paying for what they've done." Pentland added, "She was a very loving and giving person and she did not deserve this. She loved her daughters, she loved her family. They need to pay. They need to pay for what they did."If you have any information about this case, you can call the OSBI at (580) 248-4050 so this family can find the closure they need.

This week’s story involves the homicide of a 23 year old Montana man named Randy Church . It was a cold winter day back in February 1985. Randy Church worked at Pizza Hut. He was also a Montana State University student. While closing alone, an unknown killer entered the Pizza Hut restaurant, shot Randy to death and stole just under $1,000.00. Randy’s parents were heartbroken and died before ever finding out who killed their son. However, there may be a silver lining in the clouds because there is also DNA on this case. I am hopeful that law enforcement can test it and find a donor.This case remains open and needs someone to call in a tip and give this family some peace.

This week’s story appeared on an episode of ID Discovery’s Still a Mystery. It was featured on episode 11, season two, about the story of a young woman who was murdered and then dismembered. Trish Danielle Haynes was a 25-year-old woman who became involved in a domestic abuse relationship. They lived together in a New Hampshire town called North Woodstock. The couple dated off and on between 2014 and 2017. After 3 years, Trish contacted the police and filed a complaint against her abusive boyfriend. He begged her to drop the charges. She gave in and agreed to drop the charges. Unfortunately, by dropping the charges, the police charged Trish with filing a false police report. Trish had returned to Florida to stay with her grandmother Sandy, who had raised her. Trish was then summoned to court in New Hampshire to face charges for the false police report.Trish returned to New Hampshire and stayed with a friend named Becky who lived near Cardigan Mountain State Park. Trish got restless and wanted to leave. She reconnected with a former classmate named Ashley Smith. Ashley and her husband, Doug Smith, lived in Grafton, New Hampshire. The Smiths offered Trish a place to stay while she waited for her court date. On January 28, 2018, Becky gave Ashley a ride to Citgo gas station to meet with Ashley and Doug. Trish left with the Smiths and returned to their home. Unfortunately, no one would ever see Tricia alive again. In September 2018, law enforcement found some of Trish’s remains inside a combo washer and dryer unit in Grant’s Pond. Someone had murdered and then dismembered Trish. During the investigation, law enforcement would learn that Ashley and Doug Smith both had lengthy criminal records. Law enforcement quickly descended on the Smith home, looking for evidence of the grisly crime. Today, Ashley and Doug Smith are both suspected of killing Trish. It’s believed that Trish Haynes died on May 18, 2018. Since Trish’s death, witnesses have come forth to the family and told law enforcement and Trish’s family horror stories of how Trish was tortured and abused while staying with the Smiths.A friend of the Smiths said Trish was always at the residence, but then one day she vanished. Ashley claimed Trish had run off to another state with an unknown man. If you do research on this case or in the backgrounds of Ashley Smith (formerly Ashley Ruff) and Doug Smith, you will find many details about their criminal past. For this story, I spoke to Trish’s cousin Carey, her great aunt Valorie and Chloe, who knew both Ashley Smith and Trish. If you have any additional information about this case that could help the family of Trish Haynes get justice, please contact the New Hampshire State Police at 603-271-3636.

A grieving mother named Donna Augustine reached out to me and asked if I would share her son’s story. The Augustine family lives in Ulster County, New York. Donna told me Steven is a twin. Donna also has a daughter. At 32, Steven lived at home with his parents. Donna considered Steven a wonderful son. He looked after his parents, took care of their home, yard, and automobiles. He also had two sons he loved more than anything. He worked long hours so he could provide for his young sons. On May 28, 2018, Steven Augustine left work and walked home. He was attacked near a Kingston bakery. The beating was so brutal, Steven barely survived. Authorities arrested a career criminal with a lengthy record named Charles Miles. The beating left Steven permanently paralyzed and on a ventilator. He live for another 23 months and remained confined to a hospital bed until his death. Donna expected Charles Miles to face serious charges for nearly killing her son. She became angry after learning Miles would only be charged with a misdemeanor and not a felony. He only spent 72 days in the county lockup before authorities released him.The Augustine family became angry. How could Steven’s assault only be a misdemeanor? They assumed that since Miles already had a lengthy criminal record which warranted serious charges. Former Ulster County District Attorney Holley Carnright refused to charge Miles with a felony. He claimed Miles didn’t intend to harm Steven. According to Carnright, “The injuries to his face were consistent with a single punch. He also said the fracture was caused by Steven falling down backwards. I have seen pictures of Steven’s injury. Half of his skull was caved in from a blunt weapon and not a fall. Medical staff removed the left side of Steven’s skull. Donna is now fighting to get justice for her dead son. A local news station interviewed Carnright, and he insisted he couldn’t charge Miles with a felony. Donna wondered why the authorities weren’t going after Miles for more severe charges. According to Donna, an investigator told her that Charles Miles worked as a trusted police informant for many years. She now believes that’s why Charles Miles hasn’t been charged with additional crimes after Steven died. Donna is determined to fight for her son. She wants to see Charles Miles get prison time for his part in Steven’s death. Although Steven died nearly two years after the assault, he would still be alive had he not been nearly beaten to death. Steven loved his sons. He should still be alive and spending time with them. Steven died alone with none of his loved ones to comfort him. If you have any additional information about this case that could help Donna Augustine get justice, please contact the New York State Crimestoppers @ (866) 313-TIPS. I would also like to make a special request on behalf of the Augustine family. They need an attorney to help them prepare a legal strategy to get justice for Steven. If you are an attorney in New York and can help this family, please email Donna Augustine at Donnaaugu12401@gmail.com.

On the day of September 25, 2000, Christopher was off from school. At 11, his dad felt he was mature enough to be home alone. His father came home around 11am for lunch. He then left an hour later. He would then leave work early and arrive home around 2 pm. When he came home, Christopher wasn’t there to greet him. He then began looking for his son. When he looked in his room, he saw dish racks from the dishwashing machine in Christopher’s room. He immediately went to the dishwasher. He saw Christopher’s clothing piled up next to the machine. When he opened the machine, he found his son’s body inside the machine. Not only was Christopher deceased, but someone had turned on the machine and ran an entire cleaning cycle. From this point, the mystery began. After authorities arrived, they immediately accused Christopher’s dad of killing his son.

This week’s case occurred in Houston Texas. The potential victim was a young mother of two who was found deceased inside a locked tattoo shop.For this episode, I interviewed Tiffany Hicks, a grieving mother who just lost her 27 year old daughter Tailor Marie Clark under mysterious circumstances. Tailor was an entrepreneur who had developed her own salve for people with tattoos. She planned on marketing her product through various tattoo shops. The product was called Tailor Made. On September 17, 2021, Tailor arrived at a Houston tattoo shop called 59 Ink. She planned on speaking to the owner about carrying her tattoo salve. She also wanted to get another tattoo and another one touched up. While at the tattoo shop, Tailor kept in touch throughout the evening with her boyfriend and mother. Eventually, things got strange. Tailor’s boyfriend received a message referring to him as Daddy while Tiffany received a text from Tailor stating that she was dead. Tiffany assumed it meant her daughter’s phone had died. After all communication between Tailor, her boyfriend and Tiffany ceased. Tiffany and Tailor’s boyfriend believed that someone else was sending messages on Tailor’s phone pretending to be her. By 2 pm, on the following day, which was Saturday September 18, 2021, Tailor’s step brother and one of his friend’s drove to the tattoo shop. One of the tattoo artists pulled up. The stepbrother and his friend said they were looking for Tailor. The three men entered the tattoo shop and found Tailor’s lifeless body in the backroom lying on a couch. What happened to Tailor? Why was she found deceased inside a locked tattoo parlor?

For the 100th episode, I interviewed JoAnn Lowitzer, who is the mother of 16-year-old Alexandra “Allie” Lowitzer, who attended Spring High School in Spring, Texas. Allie was active in art, choir, softball, and Girl Scouts. But Joann’s life changed forever on April 26, 2010. It was just like any other day for the Lowitzer family. Allie had asked her mom for permission to walk to the Burger Barn and collect her paycheck. She also wanted to see if she could work that night.Joann originally said no, but Allie begged and pleaded. She had never walked to her job before and it was only a short distance from her home. Joann finally gave in and gave Allie permission to walk to her job after school. Allie got off the bus that day at 3pm and then began walking to work. She would disappear and never be seen again. Allie vanished 11 years ago. There have been no tips or any information about her whereabouts. JoAnn told me she still hopes that her beloved daughter is still alive. JoAnn has worked with a PI who received a tip that Allie was a victim of sex trafficking and might be in a trap house in Ohio. JoAnn told me the tip didn’t lead to anything significant. Do you know what happened to Allie? Her mother is still hoping she can find out what happened to her daughter. Unfortunately, as the days pass, it reduces the odds of Allie ever being found alive. JoAnn said that whenever she hears about an unidentified body being in the area, it concerns her because she knows it could be Allie.If you have any tips about Allie Lowitzer, please contact either the Harris County Sheriff’s Department @ 713-967-5700, Crime Stoppers @ 713-222-TIPS or you can also visit the alexandrialowitzer.com for additional information about this case.

This week’s story occurred in Littlefield, Arizona in 2018. Jerry and Susan McFalls, both 62, were retired and owned a home in West Jordan, Utah and a second home in Littlefield, Arizona. Family said they often travelled between homes. Before they went missing in January 2018, they told family they were leaving Littlefield and returning home to West Jordan. But they never made it back home. The local sheriff’s office served a search warrant and visited the Littlefield home to find out what happened to the missing elderly couple. The house was unlocked and their two dogs were inside with no food or water. Deputies found a purse, wallet and cellphone left on the kitchen table. It was as if they had just both vanished. There was a witness who saw the couple climb into an SUV that has never been located. On October 18, 2018, the remains of two unidentified people were located in the desert near the Virgin River Gorge in Arizona. Authorities identified the human remains as Jerry and Susan McFalls, a West Jordan couple who went missing over three years ago. The Mohave County sheriff’s office announced someone had murdered the couple. For this episode, I spoke to Bob Hutchinson, the nephew of Jerry and Susan McFalls who shares his thoughts on Jerry and Susan's unsolved homicides. For additional information about this case please visit the Help for Finding Justice for Susan and Jerry Mcfalls Facebook page. ***Opening audio courtesy of ABC Channel 4 news (https://www.abc4.com)Please also visit my website for more information about my true crime and paranormal newspaper columns at www.themarcabe.com.

On the morning of December 23, 1974, Lisa Renee Wilson, 14, Julie Ann Moseley, 9, and Mary Rachel Trlica, 17, travelled to the Seminary South Shopping Center in Fort Worth, Texas to do some shopping. Julie was the sister of Renee’s boyfriend, Terry Moseley.Rachel and Renee had initially planned to go shopping with Terry, but he had made other plans. Julie wanted to go along with them, but was told she needed permission from her mother. She was able to get permission, but was told she needed to be home by 6:00pm. Renee was excited about attending a Christmas party that evening with Terry and wanted to be home early to get ready.At 12:00pm, the girls visited the local Army/Navy surplus store to get some jeans Renee had on layaway. They then drove to the shopping center and parked near Sears .Witnesses would later claim they’d seen the girls inside the mall throughout the afternoon. However, it’s never been confirmed. Keep in mind this was the 70s. Most young girls had long straight hair. And since it was Christmas time, the mall would be full of teenagers out for Christmas break. Rachel’s Oldsmobile was found in the parking lot around 6:00pm. It was locked, and there was single present on the backseat floorboard. However, there was no trace of the girls or any indications of a struggle. Nearly five decades later, no one has ever seen the girls again. ***Opening audio courtesy of WFAA.comPlease also visit my website for more information about my true crime and paranormal newspaper columns at www.themarcabe.com.

I was recently contacted by a woman named Mirya Glover, who is Ernestine Hurt's granddaughter. In 1982, Ernestine was brutally stabbed at 202 E. sixth street in Cincinnati, Ohio. Unfortunately, Ernestine would later die in the hospital from her wounds. Ernestine has just become another crime statistic. Other than her granddaughter, barely anyone remembers her. For many years she has tried to get justice for her beloved maternal grandmother. Mirya was just a child when her grandmother was brutally murdered. She told me the loss devastated the family. Mirya’s mother experienced homelessness and became involved with abusive men. Mirya told me there was a former Cincinnati police officer who may have an idea of who could have killed her grandmother. Mirya said her uncle was a snitch who gave information about drug deals and other local crimes to a Cincinnati police officer. The uncle had enemies who may have wanted to retaliate against him by killing Ernestine. There are no details about the killer. A witness claimed it was possibly a black man who stabbed Ernestine. But the witness wasn’t sure. Today, Mirya is the lone person seeking information about her murdered grandmother. She has pleaded with Cincinnati police and the FBI for help. But neither have given her any useful information leading to her grandmother’s killer.

Episode 95: Nicole Burnham

Episode 95: Nicole Burnham

2021-08-1501:02:35

This week’s story is about a young woman who reached her breaking point and decided she no longer had anything to live for. She reached out for help many times, but instead of receiving help, she was met with disdain and even hatred. Nicole Burnham wanted to pursue a career after she graduated from high school. She joined the National Guard and then went active duty and became a full-time soldier. Although her parents weren’t happy with their daughter’s decision, they supported her. Her mother said her going to the military would be the worst decision she had ever made. She was sent to Camp Casey in South Korea on April 15, 2017. Life in South Korea wouldn’t be a positive experience. After an accident that left her with a severed finger, she was then sexually assaulted. In June, a group of fellow soldiers held Nicole down, assaulted her and then took photos of her. Nicole’s mother told me it wasn’t an actual rape, but damn close. She would also be sexually harassed non-stop by a group of the same 4 or 5 male soldiers. One asked her to have a three way sexual encounter with him and his wife. Another soldier asked her when was it going to be his turn to get a piece of that. Another incident involved a soldier shoving a wrench into her rectum with enough force that it ripped her pants.Nicole requested an immediate transfer back to the states. She was terrified and felt alienated. She told her mother she had become an outcast after telling on her abusers. Nicole said people just avoided her and didn’t speak to her. She would end up having to wait 82 days before she could return back to the states. Fort this week’s story, I spoke to Stacey Burnham who is the mother of Nicole Burnham, the young 21- year-old soldier who left us too early. After being sexually harassed and tormented, she felt like killing herself was the only way out of her nightmare inflicted upon her by her fellow soldiers in the United States Army. On January 26, 2018, shortly after her 21st birthday, Nicole hanged herself using her military belt in her room at Fort Carson. Today, her parents and brothers still live with the agony of knowing the Army didn't do enough to save Nicole.** Opening audio courtesy of CBS News (www.cbs.com)Please also visit my website for more information about my true crime and paranormal newspaper columns at www.themarcabe.com.

Episode 94: Bobby Ford

Episode 94: Bobby Ford

2021-08-0847:42

Bobby Glenn Ford was 28 when he died. He was found deceased in his home on April 13, 2011. An unknown killer had entered Bobby’s home on that morning and shot him in the head. When police investigated the homicide, they learned that Bobby was growing marijuana in his home. Based on my conversations with family and friends, the Indianapolis Police department think his death may have been over a drug deal gone bad. However, those close to Bobby don’t believe this. They have stated that he was likely murdered by someone close to him for more personal reasons. This case is unusual. There is no information about it anywhere. If you do an online search, it’s almost as Bobby Ford never existed. There are no pleas for justice, no local media stories or any local news videos covering the story.For this story I spoke to Bobby’s sister April Hudson, Emily Nixon and Mike McBride. Emily and Mike were two of Bobby’s closest friends. Both loved him and are angry that his homicide isn’t solved. If you know anything, his family is requesting that you call in a tip and help them get justice. Bobby has 3 children that deserve answers. If you would like to know more about Bobby’s story, please visit the Justice for Bobby Ford FB page. And if you know anything about this homicide, you can report an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.Please also visit my website for more information about my true crime and paranormal newspaper columns at www.themarcabe.com.

This week’s story involves the brutal 1971 triple homicide of three men in Indianapolis. On Dec. 1, 1971, a man named John Karnes hadn’t heard from his friends Robert Hinson and Robert Gierse. He visited the residence at 1318 N. LaSalle St. to check on his friends. What he found was horrific. Someone had murdered Indianapolis businessmen Robert Hinson, 30; James C. Barker, 27; and Robert Gierse, 34. Their hands and feet were bound and their throats had been cut. They were nearly decapitated. Marion County coroner, Dr. Dennis J. Nicholas believed the victims were held by their hair to extend their necks and then cut from ear to ear with a knife. Death was almost instantaneous. Indianapolis P.D. had a difficult investigation that lasted many years. There were many suspects and various motives for the three killings. In 2001, authorities received a confession from a man who had already died. The confession was left in a safe deposit box and to be given to authorities upon his passing. The letter read, “These two men I killed in their beds by cutting their throats and there was another guy who wasn’t supposed to be there but I had to kill him too because he showed up,” the letter continued. “Ted was supposed to pay me when he got the insurance money but he kept putting me off because he said he had lost some money, but he said he would pay me as soon as he could." “The paper said that a yellow Oldsmobile was seen at the place where I killed them but it was really my yellow Plymouth Road Runner. I buried my boots because the tracks they found ‘em ‘cuz I knew they could match up on the prints on my boots.”For this story, I spoke to retired Indianapolis police Captain Robert Snow and also Mary Duke who was the daughter of Carroll Horton, the man falsely accused of the murders. They discussed the homicides and how a false accusation affected an innocent man. Snow wrote a book about this homicides titled Slaughter on North LaSalle. The title is available on Amazon.com and all major book suppliers.Please also visit my website for more information about my true crime and paranormal newspaper columns at www.themarcabe.com.
