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.

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.

For this week’s unsolved homicide, we have to go back to August 15, 2006 when a 17-year-old Colorado mother named Candace “aka Candi” Hiltz was brutally murdered at the home she shared with her mother Dolores. Candi was a young mother caring for her daughter Paige. She was close to her family and sister-in-law Heather Hiltz. For Candi, a series of events would lead to her homicide. Her story begins when an officer arrived at her home looking for her brother James Hiltz. The officer began questioning his mother Dolores Hiltz about James. The officer became angry and raised his voice at Dolores. Candi stepped in and told the officer to stop disrespecting her mother. The officer told her to be quiet or he would arrest her. Candi held out her arms and told the officer to arrest her. But if he did, she would report him to his superiors for taking money from a prominent drug dealer. Shortly after, Candi’s dog disappeared. Someone had lured the dog from the property, tied it to a tree, then killed it. Within a few weeks of the family dog being killed, intruders had unknowingly entered Candy’s home and waited for her. Candi was shot through the chest and in the head. The killers then wrapped her body in a blanket and left her body near her baby, who was in a basinet. Sometime later, a man purchased the remnants of a storage shed. When he entered it, he found the bloody blanket used to cover Candi’s body, an axe, rope, other items and a police uniform belonging to detective Robert Dodd. It was also learned that Detective Dodd had disposed of other police evidence at a local dump. The Hiltz family and the community wondered why this evidence secured in a police evidence room? For this episode of the Catch my Killer podcast, Candi’s sister Heather Hiltz and private investigator Rich Prater tell Candi’s story. If you know anything please reach out to Heather through The Candace Hiltz investigation fund page on FB or you can contact Rich Prater at 469-954-5457 or email him at Rich.Prater.rjp@gmail.com.

Before Tatyana died, she told her mom she had received a death threat from a man who terrified her. Amanda said her daughter knew this man was going to kill her. Amanda has said there are people who know what happened to her daughter. But they won’t speak to the police because they are terrified of reprisal. Do you know what happened to this young mother?

It was a cold New York winter. The temperature was in the 20s. Patrick didn't own a car so where did he go? His roommate called his superiors the next day to report that Patrick wouldn't be showing up for work. The roommate claimed he didn't know where Patrick was. If he didn't know where he was, then how would he know that Patrick wouldn't show up for work? And why would he call Patrick's supervisors?

Timothy Guy disappeared in February 1987. His family believes he never left his place of employment alive. When Timothy disappeared, he was 18 years old. He lived with his parents in Snellville, Georgia. He had left home to take a job working at a now defunct ranch called the Sleepy Fox Farm located in Forsyth County Georgia. The ranch was roughly 25 miles away from Tim’s home. Not only did he work at the farm, he also lived there. Tim worked as a farm hand for a man named Phillip Klinger who is now deceased. Tim cleaned stalls and did other manual labor. He was last seen on February 6, 1987. Allegedly, he left the farm with a friend who drove a 1970 something Chevy Impala. And this is where this case gets strange. If you look up Timothy Guy on the internet, there are many articles and theories about his fate. Warren Guy is Tim’s father. He has been searching for his son for over 30 years. Over the years, he has heard many rumors about his son. One of the more horrific ones is that Tim never left the Sleepy Fox Farm alive. For this week's episode, I spoke to a true crime blogger named Anthony (Shurlock Holmes) who is Warren's friend. I also spoke to Dawn Klinger, who is the daughter of Timothy's late employer. It's been alleged he was involved with Tim's disappearance. Dawn has defended her father and said he had nothing to do with Tim's disappearance.If you would like to learn more about this story, please visit Anthony's social media sites or Timothy's Facebook page.

On Sept. 12, 2019, officers responded to an apartment in Asheboro, North Carolina around 3:20 p.m. They entered the apartment and found a 33-year-old man named Brandon Embry nude and unresponsive. Brandon was covered in bruises and cuts. There was also blood on the walls. The entire apartment was destroyed. The commode was ripped out and the entire apartment looked as if it had been ransacked. Embry was taken to the hospital for medical care. Unfortunately, he died from his wounds at the Moses Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital. The final ruling was that Brandon died from pneumonia and sustained several self inflicted injuries. However, Sarah Lee, who is Brandon’s mother is angry about the ruling. She believes that someone murdered her son and his injuries are the result of her son fighting for his life. Sarah has also spoken to a nurse who cared for Brandon before he died. She told Sarah that she thought it impossible for Brandon to have beaten himself to death. She said his injuries resembled those of someone who was in a car wreck. Sarah later found out that a neighbor had witnessed an unknown dark haired man arguing with Brandon shortly before he died. Sarah also mentioned that Brandon had a female friend who seemed to have information about Brandon’s death that wasn’t publicly released. Sarah has shared Brandon’s story in hopes that her son’s case will be reopened and Brandon’s death will be investigated as a homicide. The police have closed Brandon's case. If you have any tips or information about his death, please contact Sarah Lee through Brandon's FB page titled Brandon's voice (https://www.facebook.com/brandonwembry/).

This week’s unsolved homicide goes back to February 26, 1982 in Atlanta, Georgia. The 39 year anniversary of Danny Stowe’s murder will be coming up in February and his family has no answers. For this story, I spoke to Lou Anne Carmichael, who was married to Danny. The couple had two sons together. Although Lou Anne has since remarried, she continues seeking justice for Danny. Danny Stowe’s story goes back to a strip club called the Purple Onion that was once in Atlanta. He was playing pool with his brothers as he often did. On occasion, Danny would work the door and collect entrance fee money from patrons. On the night of February 26, 1982, Danny was spending time with his brothers. The man scheduled to work the door called off. Danny was asked to work the door, which he did. During the evening, an unknown black man entered the Purple Onion and began ordering drinks. He asked if he could run a tab. He became angry after being denied. He was then asked to leave. The man left the bar and retrieved a gun. He fired into the club and fatally shot 28-year-old Danny Stowe. The killer then fled in a pristine Orange Nova with a black top. The Atlanta police secured the glass the man was drinking from. It had his fingerprints on it. They also retrieved the bullet used to kill Danny. Unfortunately, the glass and bullet have disappeared. Someone out there knows who killed Danny. Do you know who killed him? If you are listening to this story and know something, I urge you to call in a tip and help the Stowe family get justice.

This week’s story is about Lance Cpl. Ronald “Macho” Valentin who grew up in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Like millions of other young men and women in America, Ronald joined the Marines. Although his mother Gloria didn’t want him to join, she still supported her first born son’s dream. Ronald kept in touch with his mom. The two spoke regularly. Ronnie would eventually be sent to Okinawa, Japan. Gloria last spoke to her son on August 31, 2018. For five days she went without hearing from her son. She found it strange and had a feeling something was wrong. Her son wouldn’t go so long without contacting her. He knew she worried about him. Gloria would learn that her son went missing for five days before he was reported missing. On September 5, 2018, the Marines contacted Gloria and asked if she knew where her son was. She said he was at his duty assignment at Camp Hansen in Okinawa, Japan. She was shocked and upset that they were asking where her son was. Weren’t they keeping tabs on their soldiers? A day later on the 6th, Gloria learned that her son Ronald was no longer missing. He was found in a drainage ditch 200 feet from where he was last seen. He had suffered blunt force trauma to the back of the head. Someone had murdered the 21 year old Marine. After two years, Gloria hasn’t received any answers from NCIS or anyone else about her son’s homicide. She remains in the dark and has no answers. She wants to know who killed Ronald and why? She has told me she will never stop pursuing answers until she finds out who killed her son. If you know anything about the death of this young man, please contact NCIS at 1-800-543-6289 or visit their website at https://www.ncis.navy.mil/.

Candy gave birth to Victor when she was only 15. So they grew up together and became best friends. On December 7, 2016 just before 8pm, Victor was at his mother’s home. He was standing outside on the porch when someone approached him and fired shots at him. After hearing the sounds of gunfire, Candy ran to the front door to find Victor mortally wounded. He had staggered into the house and then collapsed. In his final moments, he asked his mom to help him. She began administering to CPR. Unfortunately, she couldn’t save him. He died in her arms. Four years have passed since Victor’s death. The police have nothing. It’s unsure if the killer walked up to Victor or if the killer drove by in a car. There are no witnesses and if there, no one is talking. Victor’s parents are on an endless search for justice. Neither will give up on finding their son’s killer. Now on with the story of Vitor Duenas Jr. as told by his mother Candy Villa. Do you know what happened to this young man? His family needs your help. Not only has the family lost a son, but Victor’s son will never grow up to know his own father. Victor’s family loved him. His parents are heartbroken over the loss of their son. They need your help.

Riley Schultz, 19, was found deceased on March 15, 2019, at Camp Pendleton, in San Diego County, Calif. While on duty, he was killed by a single gunshot wound to the head. The Marine corps ruled Riley’s death was self inflicted. However, his family doesn’t believe this. The family has been so desperate for answers, they exhumed Riley’s body so it could be reexamined. The family found abrasions on his body and a fractured hyoid bone. To the family, it appears someone may have assaulted Riley before his death.Misty Schultz-McCoy of Colorado is understandably upset about her son’s death. She knows he wouldn’t kill himself. He was looking forward to coming home for a visit and just enjoying life. On the day of Riley’s death, he was scheduled to guard some company equipment between 3:50 and 5 am. Another Marine arrived to relieve Riley and found him deceased. What’s also troubling is that Riley’s family was originally told his death wasn’t a suicide.

This week’s episode is about a young soldier named Richard Halliday who disappeared from Fort Bliss on July 24 2020. He is the son of Rob and Patricia Halliday. The family has had issues with the Army in their search for Richard. He is listed as AWOL and not missing which means he is considered a deserter and criminal. The family knows this isn’t true. Patricia knows her son. He would never just walk away from his responsibilities and family without contacting them. He has family overseas, but none of them have reported seeing or hearing from Richard. They have had to do their own investigation into Richard’s disappearance. Patricia told me the local authorities won’t search for him because the Army has jurisdiction over him. And the Army won’t look for him because he’s considered a deserter. This has left the family in a quandary. Listening to Patricia, it doesn’t sound likely that Richard walked away from his life. For one, he didn’t own a car and two he didn’t have any money. He also left his possessions behind. So how far would he have gotten without any money, a vehicle or his belongings?Patricia doesn’t feel like her son is alive because she cannot believe he would go this long without contacting his family. She thinks it’s possible that he was killed within the confines of Fort Bliss or someplace nearby. No cameras picked up on him walking away from the base. So he couldn’t have just walked away unnoticed. Someone saw him and knows what happened to him. The family believes there are fellow soldiers who know more than what they are saying but may be fearful of saying anything. If you know anything about Richard Halliday, please call the Fort Bliss military police dispatch at 915-744-2115, the Fort Bliss military police investigative office at 915-305-1015 or the family at 941-677-0060.

During the early morning of August 13, 2016, youngsters Jayden Ugwuh, 9, and Montell Ross, were playing video games and hanging out. The boys were cousins and best friends. Unknown to them, two men had approached the house and began firing. The house was riddled with gunfire. It’s believed that over 20 shots were fired. At the time of the shooting, there were several other children at the house. This included both Jayden and Montell's siblings. Montell was one of the first victims shot. Young Jayden fled the room to safety. But once he realized he didn’t see Montell, he rushed to get his cousin to safety. Jayden ran back into the line of fire to save his cousin. He was shot immediately. He managed to crawl into the arms of his older brother Jason before dying. Try to imagine what it would be like to be Jayden’s teenage brother. He has had to live with the memory of his little brother dying in his arms. It’s not something I want to even think about. Four long years have passed since the death of these young boys. Their families miss them dearly. Aisha told me some of the surviving kids have been affected forever. For instance, some of them are fearful to be near windows. And they all live in fear because the killers are still roaming the streets. So far, the police have said no one is talking. There are people who know what happened, but they aren’t talking.

This week’s episode is about a young soldier named Lavena Johnson. I spoke to her father Dr. John Johnson, who is a psychologist. He shared Lavena’s story with me. Lavena was his pride and joy. Dr. Johnson and his wife Linda were the parents of 3 sons and two daughters. Dr. Johnson said he took much pride in the fact that Lavena not only looked like him, but she also had his personality. They both shared a similar outlook about life. Lavena came from a loving home where family meant everything. Although Lavena’s family hoped she would attend college, they supported her decision to join the Army. But life would take a turn for the worse for the Johnson family after Lavena was deployed to Iraq in 2005. On July 17th, 2005, Lavena had a final conversation with her father. The two had made plans to decorate the Christmas tree together after she returned home to Missouri. Two days after that phone call, the Johnson family received a visit from a soldier with horrific news. Lavena had allegedly committed suicide in Iraq. Dr. Johnson launched his own investigation into the matter. He has since learned that his daughter was raped and murdered. He has spent 15 years pleading for the Army to reclassify Lavena's death as a homicide and not a suicide Video courtesy of: www.democracy.orgPlease also visit my website for more information about my true crime and paranormal newspaper columns at www.themarcabe.com.

On August 7, 2012, Sue and Tony Bemis learned that their beloved son Keith had committed suicide because he couldn’t handle the pressures of his job. Keith’s parents and 4 siblings were in shock. They didn’t believe this was possible. Keith had no issues with mental health, he wasn’t depressed and had never shown any indication of wanting to harm himself. Sue and Toni began looking into the circumstances. They were told that Keith had put on his motorcycle head and shot himself to death. But they became even more concerned when they saw photos of the death scene. Someone had desecrated Keith's body and residence. Homosexual slurs were written on Keith's body and all over his walls. Whoever did this apparently wanted to send a message. Also, Keith wasn't gay. Within a few hours, the Navy ruled Keith's death a suicide. His parents said the Navy made the ruling without ever checking Keith's fingers for gunpowder residue. Keith’s parents have spoken to people who knew Keith. They have been told by reliable sources that someone murdered him. They have also discussed Keith’s case with medical experts who also believe someone murdered Keith.. Tony believes more than one person may have been involved in killing his son. Unfortunately, Sue and Tony have had no luck getting anyone to listen to them. For the past 8 years they have tried everything to get keith’s death changed from a suicide to a homicide. This has become their mission in life.

For this week's story, I spoke to Amanda, who is the younger sister of Sarah Fennell. The sisters grew up in Tennessee and were always close. But Sarah would eventually get married and move to Arkansas with her husband. Amanda told me the marriage didn’t work out. Sarah and her husband separated and began dating other people. Sarah began dating a man named Adam. Amanda didn’t get to see her sister often since they lived in different states, but she sensed something might be wrong with her sister. If you visit the What Happened to Sarah Fennell of Fort Smith FB page, you will find a lot of information about Sarah’s death on February 13, 2009. For instance, Sarah’s body had over 40 bruises, a broken hand and strangulation marks on her throat. Her boyfriend had scratches on his face and his eye was swollen shut. The family believe Sarah and Adam engaged in a vicious fight that led to Sarah’s death. An autopsy states that Sarah died of natural causes. The ruling shocked Amanda and her family. They don’t understand how anyone could call this a natural death. As a result the case is now closed. Amanda has since received the autopsy report and a disk of her sister’s injuries. She has also shared information about her sister’s former boyfriend on the What happened to Sarah Fennell of Fort Smith FB page. I highly recommend you visit the page.For additional information about this case, please visit the What Happened to Sarah Fennell of Fort Smith Facebook page.

For this week’s episode I spoke to Ailive Rausch, who is the mother of a deceased teenager named Scott Fosnaught. Sometime after 1 a.m. on July 17, 2002, 15 year old Scott Fosnaught and his friend Shawn Baur who was also 15, had left a party and were walking home along Cashdollar Road. A passing motorist driving along that road came across the bodies of Fosnaught and Baur, who were laying near each other in the road. Scott was already deceased. He had suffered major injuries to his chest area. Shawn was still alive, but barely. He had two massive head wounds. He was was rushed to the hospital where he would die from his wounds. The boys were good friends and had spent much time together. They both lived in Evans City, Pennsylvania in Butler county. The Pennsylvania state police took the lead on investigating the homicides. But what they found was troubling. Based on the injuries, authorities believe the boys were struck by a vehicle. Scott’s body could have been hit by a car based on his internal injuries. However, it didn’t seem likely that Shawn was hit by a car. He had suffered severe trauma to his head. His injuries appeared more in line with being struck with a weapon than by a car. Also, if the boys were hit by a car, why was there no broken glass, paint chips or skid marks which are typically at the scene when someone is hit by a car. Do you know what happened to these boys? If you do, please pick up your phone and do the right thing and call Trooper Deluca of the Pennsylvania State Police at 724-284-8100 or you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-4PA-TIPS (8477). There is also a substantial reward for any tips leading to the conviction of those responsible for killing Scott Fosnaught and Shawn Baur.Please also visit my website for more information about my true crime and paranormal newspaper columns at www.themarcabe.com.
