This week's story involves a 22-year-old young woman from Flint, Michigan named Aliyah Nicole Wilson. During the early morning hours of July 19, 2020, Aliyah was found deceased outside her balcony at her Village of Piney Point apartment in Houston. Her death was immediately ruled a suicide by hanging. Aliyah's family disagrees with the ruling and believes her body was staged to look as though it was a suicide after she was killed. An injury to the hyoid bone or a broken neck may occur in a hanging. However, Aliyah's neck was not broken. Also, Aliyah's backpack and slide-on shoes were found on the staircase. If Aliyah walked up the stairs barefoot, why was the bottom of her feet clean?Aliyah's clothes and belongings were also missing. People who commit suicide sometimes give away their belongings, but Aliyah did not do that. What happened to Aliyah's property? Is it possible that someone else was in Aliyah's apartment when she died? Possibly. Aliyah was also involved in an abusive relationship with another woman. Aliyah's mother told me the police were called to Aliyah's apartment several times for domestic violence. She expressed fear of being harmed by her ex. For this week's unsolved homicide, I spoke to Denise McClendon, who is Aliyah's mother. She has asked me to help share her daughter's story, hoping someone will hear her story and take action. Did she commit suicide or was she murdered? Her mother has no reason to believe her daughter would commit suicide. If you know anything about Aliyah's death, please reach out to Houston PD by calling them at (713)-308-3600 or (713)-308-3946. And if you would like to know more about this case, please visit the Justice for Aliyah Facebook page.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 a 19-year-old young man from Park Hills, Missouri named Deronate Martin. He was beloved by his siblings, his mother Ericka Lotts and his grandmother Kimberly Lotts Robinson. He loved football and was certainly big enough at 6’3 and 250 pounds to play the game. He had received a scholarship to play football and dreamed of playing in the NFL. He wouldn’t live long enough to even play college football. On April 25, 2021, the police were called to a home around 3 a.m. near Fredericktown, Missouri. It was the home of a white man who had posted racist material on social media. The homeowner directed a Madison County sheriff's deputy to the attic where he found the body of Derontae Martin who had allegedly shot himself to death in his left temple. Police and a forensic pathologist had determined that he fatally shot himself. Ericka Lotts, who is Derontae's mother, said authorities concluded that Martin, 19, who was black, died by suicide and repeatedly told her that she was in denial about the nature of her son's death. Ericka claimed police and medical personnel who handled the initial death investigation were blinded by tunnel vision. And it appears she was correct in her assessment. The cause of death was changed from suicide to murder. So the next question is, what was the motive? So who killed Derontae and why? If you haveany information about this case, please contact the FBI Missouri Office at (314) 589-2500 or the National FBI Office at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).

On November 1, 2020, St. Louis police were summoned to the 5900 block of Bartmer, which is located in the West End. On late Sunday night, two people were found shot to death inside a blue sedan. The deceased were 36-year-old David Joshua Long of Fredericktown and 20-year-old Ashlyn Ketcherside from Farmington, Missouri. The double homicide brought St. Louis' murder total to 220. The events leading up to the shooting began on Halloween 2020. Ashlyn was visiting with her father Darcy “Dink” Ketcherside. Ashlyn's friend David Joshua Long picked her up and drove her to Saint Louis. Dink’s last words to his daughter were I love you. According to Dink, Long went to St. Louis not knowing he was being set up to be physically assaulted. Once David Long reached his destination, an unknown killer opened fire on him. He was killed instantly. Ashlyn ducked down and climbed into the backseat when the killer started firing. She was shot in the neck and leg. She died instantly. The killer managed to escape and there were no witnesses to provide law enforcement with any useful information.

Morris Township, Greene County, Pennsylvania, is the site of this week's unsolved homicide. Betty Jane McClellan, an elderly grandmother, was shot to death inside her home during a home invasion in 2009. She was home with her husband Jake, who was shot twice but survived. After her divorce in 1976, Betty Jane McClellan moved to western Greene County, a rural area in Pennsylvania with her four children. She had to adjust to being a single parent. Her church and community embraced her. She worked at a local restaurant for nearly twenty years. Patty Friend, whose family owned the restaurant, often referred to Betty as her right hand. Betty worked at the restaurant, in the office, and later managed the restaurant. Betty's children loved her. She was the ideal mother. She attended all the events her children participated in. Betty devoted herself to her children. Sadly, her children would lose their mother to a horrific homicide. Jake and Betty Jane McCllellan were at their mobile home on the night of March 22, 2009. Just before 10 p.m., there was a knock at the door. As Jake answered, he saw a white male with shoulder-length brown hair pulled back into a ponytail asking for help with a flat tire. Jacob told him to wait outside. When Jake went to get a jacket, the man barged into his home with a gun and demanded money and guns. A fight ensued between Jake and the man. During the shooting, Jake was shot twice, once in the cheek, and once in the neck, falling to the ground. Jake heard another gunshot coming from the rear of the mobile home as Betty screamed. Jake panicked and ran outside and hid between two parked cars in the front yard. As he lies on the ground, he sees a white van slowly approaching his property. Jake saw the shooter run out of the house holding a bag or a pillowcase. The shooter approaches the van driver and they exchange words for about ten seconds before the shooter gets in and the van speeds away. Jake flags down another vehicle to call 911, and when police arrived, they discover Betty dead inside the mobile home. Jake survives after being airlifted to a local hospital. There was also another witness who saw the white van. For this story, I spoke to Betty's daughter Shelly James about the unsolved murder of her mother Betty Jane McClellan. To report information about Betty Jane McClellan or Noble Wine, please contact Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers at 1-800-4PA-TIPS (8477).

On Dec. 2, 2010, Alicia's boyfriend, Eugene Wilson, came home to their apartment to find Alicia stabbed 30 times in the neck, face and chest. Their 2-year-old son Jeremiah was sitting in his highchair. It's believed he witnessed a soulless monster stab his mother to death. Law enforcement has questioned witnesses and tested blood samples found inside the apartment. Who would want this young mother dead? She was on her way to success. She had earned her bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Ohio State University while still in her 20s. Based on my research and conversation with her cousin Shauntay Jackson, this is what occurred on Alicia's last day alive. Alicia had left early from her job, picked up Jeremiah from his babysitter and had gotten home by 5:30 p.m. She had stopped by the store to get some eggs to make meatloaf for dinner. She had placed her son in his high chair and was able to get her dinner started.Sometime between 530pm and 9pm, someone entered her apartment and stabbed her 30 times. Eugene arrived home at 9pm after finishing his class. He found Alicia's body and called the police. Alicia's two laptops and phone were gone, but her purse and wallet weren't taken. Law enforcement and Alicia's family have an idea of who killed her but there isn't enough evidence to arrest this person. The family and police are convinced the motive was definitely personal. Law enforcement also believes that Alicia's killer was known to her and was most likely a woman. For this week's story, I spoke to Shauntay Jackson about the unsolved murder of her cousin Alicia. If you have any information about this case, please contact the Columbus police at 614-645-4036.

This week’s story occurred on March 28, 2021 when a 23-year-old mother of two named Faithe Ely was found deceased on highway 56 near Wewoka, Oklahoma. Her boyfriendfound her body. He claimed she became angry with him and began walking down the highway barefoot to cool off. The mother of Faithe’s boyfriend met her son at the death scene and called 911 for help. Faithe’s boyfriend told law enforcement that he had heard a vehicle hitting a speed bump. He became concerned and then began looking for Faithe. That’s when he found her body. There was some confusion about how Faith died. And her death is still in dispute today. Originally, authorities believed Faithe was the victim of a hit and run. But her body didn’t have the appearance of someone who was hit by an automobile. According to Faithe’s mother, there wasn’t any glass, plastic or pieces of a vehicle left behind. There were also no skid marks and Faithe’s body didn’t have any car parts embedded in her body. She also said there was no road rash which is an abrasion caused by friction. It happens to your skin when it gets scraped off by a hard surface. Her family will remember Faithe as a young mother who was a creative free spirit with much spunk.

On January 6, 2012, law enforcement and firefighters responded to a house fire west of Glengary, West Virginia. Inside the home were the remains of 56 year old David Hutzler and his nine year old son James "Macky" Hutzler. Initially, police classified the case as a murder-suicide. David Hutzler was believed to have shot his son, set their home on fire, and then killed himself. Police reported that the father and son both died from gunshot wounds to their heads, and the boy suffered a second "glancing" gunshot wound on his chin.Kelli Hutzler, David Hutzler's daughter, refused to believe this. She insisted that her dad could not have committed such a heinous act. I asked Kelli why law enforcement ruled the case a murder suicide. She told me that her dad had no reason to kill himself and her brother. She also revealed that there was no murder weapon at the scene. According to her, the law enforcement theory that it was a murder suicide is incorrect because there was no weapon present. Kelli has taken issue with the West Va. State police for their initial ruling. For over a year, locals and the public believed David had murdered his son before killing himself. Eventually, law enforcement realized their mistake. The case was then ruled a double homicide. Kelli told me she finds it disturbing that some people still believe the case was murder suicide, even a year after the case was reclassified as a double homicide. Currently, there is an individual who is walking around unpunished after shooting a 9-year-old cub scout to death. Now on with the story of James and David Hutzler as told by David’s daughter Kelli Hutzler. Do you know who killed this father and son? Do you have any information about their killer? It is Kelli's mission to find out who killed her dad and brother. Those with information about the Hutzler double homicide are asked to contact the West Virginia State Police at 304-267-0002 or 304-267-0000. You can also call Crime Stoppers at 304-267-4999.

This week’s case involves a young man from Nashville, Tennessee who was only 24 when he was murdered in front of a local store called the ET Market at 4000 Gallatin Pike in Nashville. On December 7, 2017. Eric McClendon left his house to go to a local store. He would unknowingly say goodbye to his mother Susie McClendon for the last time. He left with a friend named Gregory “Boo” Smith who was 18. Sometime between the time the men left and Eric’s shooting, at least one other man climbed inside the car with Eric and his friend. While in the parking lot, the passenger turned around and shot Eric who was sitting in the backseat. According to Eric’s mother, there was video footage from the store. She asked someone from the store to describe what he saw on the video. He said the footage showed a man turning around and shooting Eric. The driver, Gregory Smith was also shot. After the shooting, the shooter exited the car and ran away. Eric’s mother told me there was also another person who also exited the vehicle. Eric died from his injuries but Smith survived. Susie told me Smith witnessed Eric’s killing since he was in the front seat with the shooter. However, no one has been charged with killing Eric. Do you know who killed Eric? Do you have any information about his killer? He was loved by his family and deserves justice. His daughter will grow up without ever knowing him.

Andrea Knabel is a mother of two who mysteriously vanished in August 2019 from Louisville, Kentucky. You may have heard about Andrea’s case as there was a documentary released about her disappearance. The documentary is called Finding Andrea on Discovery Plus. For this story, I spoke to Erin Knabel, who is Andrea’s sister. She was the last person known to have seen her sister. August 13, 2019 is the official date of Andrea’s disappearance. After Andrea got locked out of her mother’s house, she walked to her sister Erin’s home. Andrea was staying with her mother at the time. The sisters lived within walking distance. After Andrea arrived at her sister’s home she was agitated about not being able to get into her mother’s house. Andrea then left her sister's home and began to walk home. Erin watched her sister walk away from her house and that was the last anyone has seen of Andrea. Erin believes it’s highly possible that one of Andrea’s shady friends may know something about her disappearance. Erin said her sister was reliable, kind, loving and an amazing big sister. Erin and her family have worked with law enforcement and brought in a private eye to help find Andrea. Although Erin wasn’t completely satisfied with the documentary about her sister, she said she still hopes it will bring attention to her sister’s case and reach someone who can provide an answer to what happened to Andrea. What happened to Andrea Knabel? Did she walk away from her life or did someone harm her? If you know anything about Andrea’s whereabouts, I ask that you reach out to the family’s PI or law enforcement and provide a tip. If you would like to provide a tip, please contact PI Tracy Leonard at (502) 618-9337 or the Louisville Police Department at (502) 574-7120.

This week I interviewed David Keck, a gay man from Tennessee who shouldn’t even be alive to be speaking to me. It’s actually an act of God that he’s even alive. In 2014, David had met with some friends at a bar called Bullfeathers located in Knoxville, Tennessee. The friends had gotten together to have some drinks and participate in Karaoke. While on his way to the restroom, a man unknown to David engaged in a brief conversation with him. David said he believes they were discussing neck ties because David designed custom neck ties at the time. Thinking the man was interested in purchasing neckties, David gave the stranger a business card.David then went back to his friends and thought nothing else about the stranger. David then left the bar before closing and drove home. Shortly after arriving home, he heard a knock on the door. It was the stranger at the bar. He had followed David home. Moments after opening the door, everything went black. The stranger physically assaulted David and raped him.David was beaten so bad, his attacker assumed he had killed David. He would end up confessing to the mother of his children that he had murdered a gay man. He also stopped at another bar and told patrons he had killed a gay man. Eighteen hours later, the police arrived at David’s apartment. They found his apartment walls and floors covered in blood. The police officers that arrived looked at David’s body in a pool of his own blood. They assumed he was deceased until they saw his foot move. The man who nearly killed David was eventually arrested and charged with assaulting David. For unknown reasons, he wasn’t charged with a hate crime. David is also a podcaster who has a show called Surviving Abuse where he speaks to survivors of horrific events. To learn more about David and his podcast, visit his website at https://survivingpodcast.com/ or you can find his Surviving Abuse podcast on all major platforms. Just remember that you are not alone and if someone sexually assaulted you, it’s not your fault. You are a victim.

He is currently behind bars.In the days following Kaylene's disappearance, Manno sent explicit photographs of Kaylene to both her father and her 17-year-old sister. Manno has since been charged with corruption of minors. In addition, Kaylene wrote on her Facebook account that Manno had committed a robbery. In less than an hour, Kaylene's Facebook account was deactivated. This would be unusual behavior for Kaylene because she was highly active on social media.For this story, I spoke with Kaylene's father, Jason Oehling, who is retired but has dedicated himself to finding out what happened to his daughter and advocating on behalf of other missing people. Now on with the story of Kaylen Oehling as told by her father Jason.To report information about Kaylene Oehling's disappearance, please contact the Allegheny County Homicide Unit at 412-473-3000.

This week’s story is about a man in his 20s named Michael McKenney who lived in the Fairfield, Ohio area with his aunt and her family. For this story, I spoke to his mother Yolanda Middleton who has been searching for her missing son since May 2020 when he disappeared from a local park. Michael was a young man who had internal demons he had to battle. He had a drug issue and had previously overdosed. But his mother said he seemed to be on the right track when he disappeared. He had just purchased a new car and had two jobs. Michael vanished from Hueston Woods in Butler County, Ohio. Fairfield Township Police consider the case an active and open one. Unfortunately, they have run out of leads and haven’t been able to locate Michael or figure out what happened to him. Yalonda has hired a private investigator, passed out flyers, talked to local media about Michael and has done a lot to keep her son’s name in the public. What happened to Michael nearly two years ago? His mother and siblings need answers. They would like to bring Michael home and to find out what happened to him. His family has been searching for him for nearly two years. They are concerned about his welfare and want him to come home. If you know anything about the disappearance of Michael McKenney, please contact the Fairfield Township Police at 513-887-4406.

This week's story focuses on a 19 year old Houston, Texas man named Alexander "AJ" Silva III. His relatives say the last time they saw him was either April the 5th or 6th of 2021. Nearly a year has passed since anyone has heard from Silva. Friends and family say there is a reason for this. Although AJ's case is considered a missing person's case, his family claims that he is deceased. Silva was charged with felony retaliation. As part of his bond conditions, he was ordered to wear an ankle monitor. The family assumed since AJ had a monitoring device, then law enforcement would always know his whereabouts. However, they would learn this wasn't the case because law enforcement wasn't always monitoring him. He would eventually disappear and neither his family nor law enforcement know where he is. For this story, I spoke to Paul Vasquez, who is AJ's uncle. After being frustrated with law enforcement's efforts, Paul has traveled between his New Mexico home and Houston to perform his own investigation into his nephew's disappearance. Paul found a young woman who witnessed someone chase and shoot AJ to death. She even showed Paul where AJ's deceased body lie after he died. Paul recorded the woman's statement and shared it with authorities. According to Paul, the Houston Police Department have discredited the witness. However, Paul believes her because she had nothing to gain by lying and he felt she risked her life to share this information. Paul has since interviewed many witnesses and has pieced together the final days of his nephew. He told me he doesn't have a good relationship with Houston PD and they will no longer speak to him. At this point, he has said he just wants justice for his nephew and for police to acknowledge that AJ is not a missing person but indeed deceased. The family is determined to find out what happened to AJ. They are worried that law enforcement will not give this case attention because he is a young black man with a troubled past. According to AJ's electronic monitoring records, he was at a warehouse on Lumberdale Road in Houston. And it's this warehouse where a witness told Paul Vasquez she witnessed AJ's homicide. If you know what happened to AJ Silva III, please report your tips to the HPD at (713) 884-3131. And if you would like to know more about this case, please visit the Justice for AJ Facebook page.

This week's story focuses on a Pennsylvania teenager named Alicia Markovich who was 15 when she vanished on April 26, 1987 from Dunn Avenue in Blairsville, Pennsylvania. At the time, she was visiting with her father John Markovich. This year will be the 35th year anniversary of Alicia's disappearance. Unfortunately, Alicia's mother, Marcie Smith, has long given up hope that she will ever see her daughter alive again. The day seemed like any other day. Alicia, an eighth-grader at Windber High School in Somerset County, left with her father to spend time with him at his Blairsville home. Alicia's parents were divorced. It wasn't an overnight stay. Alicia was supposed to return home that same evening. Supposedly, Alicia and her father got into an argument around 5pm. Allegedly, Alicia stormed out of the house and has never been seen again. She is listed as a missing person with state police and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. But everyone who was close to Alicia don't believe she is alive. For this story I spoke to Chrissie Boyer, who was Alicia's childhood friend. Chrissie is one of Alicia's advocates and is also close friends with Alicia's mother Marcie. I also spoke a Laura Valdez, who has been friends with Marcie since childhood. She knew Alicia from birth and used to take Alicia out for pizza when she was a child. I also reached out to John Markovich and his wife and asked them to participate in this episode. Neither responded to my request. I also want to state that many people think John Markovich knows more about his daughter's fate than he has ever said publicly. However, I must state that no criminal charges have ever been brought against him and he must be considered innocent of any wrong doing in the eyes of the law. If you know what happened to Alicia Markovich, please contact Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-472-8477 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678.
