In the early months of 2023, six women turned up dead in and around Portland, Oregon, sparking rumors of a serial killer. Though police originally claimed they did not believe that the cases were connected, similarities emerged between four of the women, and one man linked them all. To the dismay of the public, not only did this suspect have multiple other crimes under his belt, but he had been granted early release from prison for fighting forest fires on the west coast. These are the stories of Kristin Smith, Charity Perry, Bridget Webster, Joanna Speaks, Ashley Real, and an unidentified Native woman. It’s also the story of Jesse Lee Calhoun. Sources: 1.

In November of 2015, a 35-year-old woman left her Spokane, Washington home late one night to run an errand, leaving a note behind for her fiancé. When she never returned, her fiancé went looking for her, and discovered her locked car abandoned near a music venue with her purse and phone inside. When sightings of her acting strangely poured in from another side of town, suspicions of a mental health crisis were raised, until theories emerged about the two men who were last seen accompanying her, as well as her fiancé himself. This is the story of Deanne Hastings. Sources: 1. KHQ: https://www.khq.com/man-arrested-for-using-missing-womans-credit-cards/video_b50a8238-78ac-11eb-8c01-7f5d1fffc556.html 2.

I hope the family sued the shit out of those pigs for their gross incompetence. This whole case could have been avoided if they had just done their fucking jobs.

His recorded "confession" sounds like he's making it up as he goes along. They give the best descriptions of this guy in this episode: fucking loser, super pathetic, fragile little man, and a "piece of absolute dog shit".

The phone call is so heartbreaking. He's so detached and cold.
