Damaging information came out about Chris Dawson over the years. His relationship with Lynette was extremely troubled, and through his role as a physical education teacher, he groomed a young female student. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the disappearance of Lynette Dawson. Though Lynette's body has never been found, the police did finally charge Chris with Lynette's murder.

The water level of Lake Mead, near Las Vegas, Nevada, along with other lakes in the West and SouthWest US, has reached dangerously low levels. Some areas are experiencing a "megadrought," and it has been called the worst drought in the last 1,200 years. This situation is causing a serious issue for drinking water and hydroelectric power for those who rely on both from some of these bodies of water. The water levels in Lake Mead have also unearthed a number of bodies, including at least one that was found in a barrel. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the bodies that have recently surfaced in Lake Mead. Many are still unidentified, including one found inside a barrel. This one for sure is no accident because people just don't accidentally end up in a barrel. The fact that the body was found inside a barrel, and the proximity to Las Vegas, have led many to suspect that this was a murder committed by the mob. These discoveries are very recent, so it remains to be seen how many of these individuals were murdered or died by accident.

The West Mesa Murders

The West Mesa Murders

2022-09-1101:00:393

In 2009, the bodies of eleven women were unearthed in an area of Albuquerque, New Mexico, called the West Mesa. Many of the women were identified as missing persons who had been on the radar of police for many years. Detective Ida Lopez had long suspected that many of the women on her missing person's list would be found together, and she turned out to be correct. Many have theorized that a lone serial killer, who has been dubbed "The West Mesa Bone Collector", is responsible for this series of murders. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the West Mesa murders and the person many believe to be responsible, "The West Mesa Bone Collector," In addition to being buried in the same location, these women had many things in common. Is one person responsible for this series of murders, preying on women in the middle of the night and then burying their bodies in one location? Or were there multiple killers operating over the years who happened to choose to bury the bodies of the victims in the same location?

The Boston Strangler

The Boston Strangler

2022-09-0457:352

From 1962 to 1964, the Boston Strangler terrorized the Boston area, praying mostly on older and vulnerable women. The police eventually connected the murders due to the signature methods that this predator used. Many of the women were strangled with a piece of their own clothing, and the killer tied a knot, and often a bow. 11 murders were eventually connected to the Boston Strangler. A man named Albert DeSalvo eventually confessed to all 11 of the murders. But did he actually commit them? Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the infamous killer who became known as the Boston Strangler. Albert DeSalvo was undoubtedly a bad man. He was in prison for other crimes when he confessed to being the Boston Strangler. His other crime sprees earned him the monikers of "The Measuring Man" and "The Green man." But many people did not believe that DeSalvo was the Boston Strangler even though he was able to provide a lot of information on the murders. A fellow inmate named George Nassar has been looked at by many as the real perpetrator. And some people believe not all 11 murders were committed by the same person. In recent years DNA has shed some light on Albert DeSalvo's connection to the murders. But, for many, quite a bit of mystery still surrounds this case.

Dorothy Davis died at the Fort Lewis Army base in Washington State in 1991. Her death was originally ruled a suicide because that's what the scene inside her bedroom suggested. But, as more pieces of the pictures came into focus, suspicion began falling squarely on the shoulders of Dorothy's husband, Corporal Christian Davis. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss Dorothy's death and the investigation that eventually led back to her husband. As authorities pieced everything together, they learned that Christian may have tried to kill Dorothy years earlier in a fire made to look like an accident. Crucial clues emerged, including the jacket Christian was wearing the night his wife died and a hazy 20-minute window of time that night. Suicide letters next to Dorothy turned out not to be what authorities they were, and the way that she was holding the gun was re-examined. It all led to one suspect, Dorothy's husband, Christian.

The Isdal Woman

The Isdal Woman

2022-08-2150:331

In 1970, a family hiking in Norway stumbled upon the burned body of a woman. Police had very little to work with to try to identify this woman. There were, however, items scattered around the woman's body that appeared to have been staged. Days later, investigators found more of the woman's belongings inside some suitcases at a railway station. The items inside the suitcases were also intriguing as it appeared that any type of identifiable information had been removed from the items. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the intrigue and mystery surrounding the unidentified Jane Doe who has become known as The Isdal Woman. Investigators discovered quite a bit of information about the woman's movements before her death, and they interviewed a number of people who had seen her. These individuals had some very interesting things to say about the woman. Entries written in code, multiple aliases, which all would have required a different passport, and a documented check fraud scheme have led to much speculation in this case. But, the question remains, who was The Isdal Woman, and how did she die? You can help support the show at patreon.com/criminology An Emash Digital production Learn more about your ad choices.

Robert Hansen

Robert Hansen

2022-08-1459:352

In the 1970s and 1980s, Robert Hansen hunted women in the last frontier of Alaska. He lured women with offers of large amounts of money for sex. Once a woman got into a car with Robert Hansen, they were trapped. He even bought his own plane in order to transport women out into the wilderness of Alaska. All of this occurred while Hansen was operating a bakery and playing the role of a husband and father. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the notorious serial killer Robert Hansen. Hansen admitted to authorities that he would take women to secluded areas, like his cabin near the Knik River, a place you can only get to by boat or in a bush plane, and then let them go there in the wilderness. As they ran for their lives, naked and barefoot, he hunted them the same way that he was known for hunting animals. His confessions shocked even seasoned investigators.

The Lyon Sisters

2022-08-0758:363

In 1975, 2 sisters, 10-year-old Katherine Lyon and 12-year-old Sheila Lyon, disappeared in Wheaton, Maryland. The sisters had gone to the local mall to see the Easter decorations and eat lunch, but they never made it home. A number of people came forward to report that they had seen the two girls. One man even came forward, saying that he saw the sisters being abducted and put into a car. But, he later admitted that he was lying. There were fake ransom demands from people preying on the grief and agony that the parents were experiencing. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the infamous case of the Lyon sisters. A number of suspects emerged over the years, including one man that the police dubbed "the tape recorder man" who had been seen with the sisters at the mall. It took many decades, but the police finally zeroed in on a man who crossed their path early in the investigation. And it was this man, Lloyd Welch, that turned about to be the culprit behind what happened to the Lyon sisters.

In this episode, we're discussing two different cases, the disappearances of Monique Daniels and Jhessye Shockley. Both are very similar cases but with very different outcomes. Monique Daniels, a 15-year-old from Moore, Oklahoma, disappeared in 1992. In 2011 5-year-old Jhessye Shockley disappeared from Arizona. The parents of both victims were charged and convicted on child abuse charges. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss these two cases. In both, suspicion was cast on a parent and/or stepparent, and siblings told the authorities very damaging information. But, only in the case of Jhessye Shockley was a murder conviction obtained. Even though many people believe that the mother and stepfather of Monique Daniels were involved somehow in her disappearance, to date, neither has been charged with murder.

Tamra Keepness

Tamra Keepness

2022-07-2450:064

The circumstances surrounding the 2004 disappearance of 5-year-old Tamra Keepness are extremely mysterious. Tamra disappeared from her home in Saskatchewan, Canada, while her three siblings and two half-siblings were in the house. The timing of events has been debated based on the facts that various people in Tamra's life have given. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the disappearance of Tamra Keepness. Tamra's mother Lorena, Lorena's boyfriend Dean, and a man named Russell Sheepskin, who was living at the home, all have their accounts of the events of that night. All three had been drinking, and for a period of time, the children were alone in the home. Despite a massive search, no evidence of what happened to her has been uncovered. This is a case that, as many do, comes down to who you believe and the plausibility of certain statements that have been made by the people involved in Tamra's life.

Clark Perry Baldwin

2022-07-1752:344

Clark Perry Baldwin is a man who has been linked to a number of murders in different states. In this episode, we are discussing a number of murders that are solved, but we have no idea who the victims are, while others remain unsolved. One common thread in these cases is DNA, forensic genealogy, and the potential for that technology to finally close out some of these cases and others. But there’s another common thread connecting some of these cases, and that is a man named Clark Perry Baldwin. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss Clark Perry Baldwin. Baldwin was a long-haul trucker who, at times, also drove a taxi. He is currently awaiting trial on murder charges in Tennessee. But, he is believed to be linked to multiple Jane Does, including Bitter Creek Betty and the Sheridan County Jane Doe. We will have to wait to see how his trial progresses and also how technology may link him to other cases.

The Pillowcase Rapist

The Pillowcase Rapist

2022-06-2601:01:205

The Pillowcase Rapist was a moniker given to a man who committed over 40 violent assaults on the East coast of Florida from 1981 to 1986. This individual was extremely cunning and cautious and staked out apartments that were well hidden from view. He crept inside the residences of unsuspecting women, usually by climbing through open windows or simply opening sliding glass doors that had been left unlocked and would scale balconies to get to higher units. He usually attacked professional women in upper-middle-class apartment complexes.  Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the case of the pillowcase rapist. In many ways, his crimes show many parallels to the crimes of The East Area Rapist / Golden State Killer Joseph DeAngelo. Both men were good at avoiding the law. The police had trouble finding out who The Pillowcase Rapist was. Thankfully, a crime scene technician did an excellent job preserving some evidence in the days before DNA was used. In 2020, a DNA link was made to a man named Robert Eugene Koehler and he was arrested as The Pillowcase Rapist. He has not yet faced a jury of his peers but, the authorities seem pretty confident in the evidence they have against him.

On May 4, 2001, Bonny Lee Bakley was found fatally shot in a car on a dark North Hollywood street. The prime suspect was her husband, famed actor Robert Blake. But Bonny, a longtime con artist, had plenty of enemies. She left behind a trail of men she’d scammed, and she had a volatile relationship with Christian Brando, the troubled son of movie star Marlon Brando.  Not since the O.J. Simpson case had the eyes of the nation been so fixated on a homicide. The search for Bonny’s killer took detectives on an eleven-month odyssey across the country and through Hollywood's underbelly of hustlers, drug addicts, and would-be hitmen. It would be the most expensive murder investigation in LAPD history to date.  This is the story of Robert and Bonny’s toxic relationship, her shocking murder, and his chaotic trial. Did actor Robert Blake kill his wife? Or was the murder someone else's vendetta? From Wondery, and the team behind the hit series Hollywood & Crime (The Dating Game Killer, The Wonderland Murders, Death of Starlet) comes a six-part series about love, obsession and fame gone wrong. Co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Josh Lucas.

Katie Janness

Katie Janness

2022-06-1959:494

In July 2021, 40-year-old Katie Janness was murdered in Atlanta's Piedmont Park. Her partner, Emma Clark, found Katie's body along with their dog Bowie just inside the park and called 911. The murder was extremely brutal and included mutilation which has led some to believe Katie's killer was known to her. The aspects of the murder have led to much speculation by the public. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the murder of Katie Janness. Much of the public's speculation has fallen on Katie's partner Emma. Some believe that Emma's behavior on the 911 call doesn't match what they believe it should have been. And, despite her pleas, the police have yet to officially clear Emma which further fuels speculation on just exactly what evidence the police have. Many questions remain including just who murdered Katie Janness. Was her killer someone inside her inner circle or was she the victim of a predator who saw Katie in the park and targeted her?

If she stopped to check on them, why didn't she leave a note with the number instead of calling and waking them up?

Saskatchewan is far from being the 'most populated province in Canada'. In fact, it's probably the most sparsely populated.

this case could be compared more with the case of Nicole Morin than with the case of Asha Degree. it is also possibly more comparable to the case of Christine Jessop. In my opinion the stronger similar risk to these girls was dangerous scummy neighbors, and Tamra, being poor, living in a rough neighborhood, and surrounded by drug addled adults, would have statistically been more vulnerable to this particular danger even than Nicole Morin or Christine Jessop.

Just FYI it's pronounced Two-ka-row. Thank you for covering this case. This young woman was murdered in the city I live in and still haunts me almost daily. The family has been suffering for over a decade now, with little to no help from the investigators. There is another Edmonton case you should cover and that is of Nadia Atwi. Her husband has been top of the list of suspects.

I moved to New Mexico from Colorado when I was in high school. I remember waking up from the backseat of the car on the way there and looking out at the landscape and wondering what kind of God forsaken place my parents were taking me to. I later came to love it but wasn't a fan in the beginning.
