Journee McDaniel was a 7-year-old elementary school student from Houston, Texas who loved life. To her family, she was the center of their universe. She was beloved by her two brothers, parents and grandmother. On December 11, 2021, Journee was out celebrating the birthday of one of her brothers. Journee had spent the evening riding on Go Karts and just having fun. After leaving the Go Kart place, Journee left with two cousins. Around 8pm, the vehicle she was riding in was struck in the 13900 block of Cullen Blvd. The driver had gone through a stop sign and struck the vehicle Journee was riding in. He then left the truck and fled the scene. The owner of the truck claimed someone stole his truck. He denied being the person who killed Journee. She died on December 13, 2022. Today, the man who killed Journee hasn’t been arrested. When the police examined the truck, the airbags had deployed and there was blood evidence left behind by the driver. It would take 6 months for the family to learn that Pedro Vargas Garcia had lied to authorities about his truck being stolen. DNA evidence proved he was the driver. For this story, I spoke to Myra Minkins, who is Journee's grandmother. Journee’s family believes Garcia fled the country and is now in Mexico. A Have you seen Pedro Vargas Garcia? If you have, please contact law enforcement and turn him in. He does have family ties to Houston so it’s possible he has since returned to Houston. If you know anything about Garcia’s whereabouts, please contact the HPD Hit and Run Unit at 713-247-4072 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

(Part 2 of 2) This week’s unsolved homicide is about the story of an 18-year-old young woman named Deborah Sue Williamson who lived in Lubbock, Texas. She was stabbed 17 times in her carport. She would die just a few feet away from her front door. Deborah was a newlywed. She had recently married a man named Doug Williamson. She was supposed to meet her husband at the Pizza Inn restaurant he managed. After she didn’t show up, he became worried. He tried calling around to find out if anyone had seen his wife. At 1 a.m. he left work and found her lifeless body. Naturally, Doug was the primary suspect since he was Deborah’s significant other. However, law enforcement cleared him because he was at work the entire evening and never left. Her case was basically forgotten for several years until a prolific killer named Henry Lee Lucas confessed to killing Deborah. This story was profiled on the Netflix series titled The Confession Killer. Today, the case remains as cold as the heart of the person who killed Deborah. This would change when an investigative journalist named George Jared and his partner Jennifer Bucholtz, a former Army counter intelligence officer took an interest in the case. The crimefighting duo traveled to Lubbock, Texas to find out who killed Deborah Sue Williamson. Their investigation was more thorough than law enforcement’s. They visited the crime scene and investigated most of the key people involved in the case. They put their findings together and presented them in a book titled “Silent Silhouette.” George has said the book doesn’t name any suspects. He presents case facts from his own interviews and the original police file and allows the reader to make his or her own deductions about what happened to Deborah Sue Williamson. The case still hangs over Lubbock, Texas like a dark cloud. There is still hope that law enforcement can use modern technology to find evidence unseen to the human eye. So who killed Deborah Sue Williamson nearly 50 years ago? If you have any information about this case, please contact the Lubbock Police Department at 806-775-2865. You can also visit the Unsolved Murder of Deborah Sue Williamson (Deborah Agnew) FB page for updates to this case. You can order your own copy of the book titled Silent Silhouette: Who Killed Deborah Sue? Written by George Jared and Jennifer Bucholtz. And if you would like to reach out to George with theories, tips or questions about his work, you can contact him through his FB titled Author George Jared. I personally found George to be knowledgeable and an interesting man to discuss true crime with. He told me welcomes your thoughts and opinions about true crime stories he has covered.

Marianne Wilkinson was a beloved 68-year-old woman who was considered a pillar of her community. She grew up in Highland park, Texas and attended college at SMU. Her dad was a prominent OB GYN. Marianne’s daughter-in-law Terri described Marianne as a beautiful person, inside and out. She was considered an excellent painter and took great pride in keeping an immaculate home. Unfortunately, Marianne’s life would come to a horrific death on December 9, 2007. Marianne and her husband Don lived in Nort Richland Hills Texas, The couple had settled in for a peaceful evening and were watching an NFL game. But a knock at the door at 8 p.m. would shatter their evening and lives forever. The couple was surprised when they heard the knock because they weren’t expecting any visitors. Marianne opened the door and was fatally shot at least three times. Her husband, Don frantically called 911 "My wife has just been shot," he said. "Somebody rang the doorbell and then shot her. I need some help quick." A neighbor had contacted law enforcement and said she was most likely the intended victim. She was going through an acrimonious divorce with Dennis Taylor, her soon to be ex-husband. She believed Taylor had hired an employee to kill her. But she said the killer went to the wrong address. Both women shared the same address number and lived on a parallel cul-de-sac a block away from each other. Law enforcement identified Dennis Taylor, Vincent Lane and Willie Boley as persons of interest and have been able to develop a DNA profile. For now, it hasn't been matched to a donor.

On March 6, 2007, employees of a business on North 71st Street in Tampa made a disturbing discovery. They found human remains sticking out of the dirt in the back of the parking lot. Someone had been buried in a shallow grave. Tampa police sent their homicide squad. The victim was identified as 36-year-old Tracy McClelland of Tampa.Before Tracy McClelland disappeared, her family knew something had happened to her because she didn’t show up to visit her sister Lisa Whidden after she had just given birth to her son. Tracy wouldn’t have missed the birth of her nephew. Law enforcement has said they think Tracy vanished around Valentine’s Day. Tracy’s sister Lisa had said Tracy had gone shopping to buy Valentine’s Day gifts and never returned home. Tracy had two daughters and a son who were young when their mother was killed. According to family, Tracy had a good childhood. She came from a loving family. Tracy’s sister Lisa compared their environment to the television sitcom Leave it to Beaver. She said her parents were divorced, but they remained on good terms. Tracy’s life seemed to be on track for success until her older brother Larry committed suicide on August 28, 1996 when Larry had called Tracy from a mental health facility. He had been previously diagnosed with schizophrenia. Apparently, Larry asked Tracy to come get him. Larry then committed suicide by hanging himself in his room. According to Tampa police Major George McNamara he said Tracy had two lives. "When she wasn't on drugs, she was a sweet, loving person who was dedicated to her family. but cocaine took over her life and destroyed her."After Valentine’s Day of 2007 had passed, Janice Garvin had become extremely worried. Where was her daughter Tracy? Everyone in Tracy’s family had become worried after she had stopped contacting the family. No one knew what had happened to her. Although she had been known to disappear in the past, something was different this time. Janice Garvin called the authorities to report her missing daughter. Law enforcement then began searching for her. Tracy’s body was recovered on March 6, 2007 near a Tampa cleaning company. Based on the smell of death, employees assumed someone had dumped an animal carcass in the vicinity. Buzzards had also descended upon the area. Eventually, an employee climbed into a bobcat and began scooping at the dirt where the smell came from. He uncovered a body. The woman was in her 20s or 30s, had dark hair and breast implants. She was wearing a blue skirt and had nice teeth and toenails. It was believed she was a deceased prostitute or drug addict. The victim was confirmed as Tracy McClelland of Tampa. Law enforcement has stated Tracy died from upper body trauma. But no additional details have been provided. For now, there is no motive and it’s unknown where Tracy was killed. The family has waited over 15 years for answers. They realize someone out there knows the truth. It’s been 15 years since Tracy was killed and discarded like trash. For this episode, I spoke to Malia Correa whose uncle had once dated Tracy. The former couple had two daughters who are Malia’s cousins. She has told me that she loved Tracy dearly and she wants justice for her two cousins whom she considers her sisters. The entire family needs justice for this woman who was so loved. Do you know who killed this young mother of three? If you have any information about this case, please contact the Tampa police at (813) 276-3529 or you can reach out to Tampa Bay Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.

Although, Private Asia Graham wasn’t murdered, her death would stem from being raped and then feeling hopeless because she felt like her superiors were more concerned about her attacker and less about the rape she endured. Before Asia died, she confided in her mother that when she reported the rape to her company commander, he told her to just get over it and move on. Asia told her mother she didn’t feel like anyone cared that she was raped. Unfortunately, Nicole Graham wouldn’t be the only grieving parent. Not long after Asia's December 31, 2020 death, her closest friend and fellow soldier Pvt. Marriah Pouncy of Chinle, Ariz. would take her own life months later on June 21, 2021. She would also die at Fort Bliss as did Asia. Mariah was a proud member of the. Navajo Nation.Asia Graham’s life began to unravel after only being at Fort Bliss, Texas for a month. It took two months for Asia to get enough courage to report that she was raped while unconscious on December 31, 2019. Her attacker was fellow soldier PFC Christian Alvarado. Asia reported the rape in February 2020. However, her superiors didn’t file the complaint until June. One year later, she was found dead in her barracks where she overdosed while battling depression from the assault, her mother said. When I asked Nicole about details surrounding Asia’s death, she told me that Asia and two of her friends received a Percoset from an unidentified person. According to Nicole, two of the pills were fine, but unknown to Nicole, her Percoset was laced with Fentanyl which killed her. Nicole believes the person who gave her daughter the Percoset should be held responsible for killing her daughter. Soldier Christian Alvarado was convicted of raping Pfc. Asia Graham Alvarado. He received a sentence of 18 years and three months. Please also visit my website for more information about my true crime and paranormal newspaper columns at www.themarcabe.com.

Episode 147: Kerry Patterson

Episode 147: Kerry Patterson

2022-08-1601:01:271

This week's story is about a 15-year-old teenager named Kerry Patterson, who vanished from Fullerton, California on June 26th, 1980 after meeting with several other teenagers at a local ice cream store called the Ice Cream Castle.She was last seen leaving with three boys named Danny Wozab, Michael Cruz and Troy LeClear. According to Wozab, Carrie climbed on his handle bars. They boys then escorted her home on their bicycles. The boys said that after leaving Kerry, she walked home and that was the last time they ever saw her again.For this week's episode, I spoke to attorney Michelle Patterson Ludwig, who is Kerry's younger sister and Detective Bob Taft with the Orange County Sheriff's Department.He is the current detective assigned to finding out who killed Kerry Patterson over 40 years ago.The family had only moved into their new home two weeks before Kerry ultimately disappeared on June 26th, 1980. The family was expecting their furniture to be dropped off. Chrystal Patterson told her daughters to stay home and wait for the furniture as she had to work. Kerry ignored her mother's order and left her younger sister Michelle to wait for the furniture alone. After Kerry left to meet up with friends at a local ice cream shop, she never returned home. Because Kerry wasn't considered a crime victim, law enforcement didn't question construction workers or the furniture delivery workers. After speaking to Michelle and Detective Taft, I learned that law enforcement never visited the ice cream shop to confirm that Kerry and the three boys were ever there. For six months, the family was left wondering what happened to Kerry. They would find out months later. On December 27th, 1980, an oil worker found Kerry's skeletal remains. If you have any information about this unsolved case, please contact Detective Bob Taft of the Orange County Sheriff's Department at (714) 713 - 1342.

I am listening to this podcast for the first time. I left my husband and children (11 and 13 then) and a mentally abusive relationship or who knows what would have happened.. To this day...almost 25 years later... my kids and his family are forbid to talk about me. I understand. My children understand. I secretly have a relationship with my mother in law and she understands. I'm so sorry this happened to you. They are controlling narcissistic freaks.
