The Unsolved: Jabez SPann

          When I first began looking into missing persons cases, I read up on the case of Jabez Spann. That was back in 2018, before his remains were found. I had him listed as a case to cover for a missing persons post. Imagine my surprise when I began researching his disappearance….only to find out that […]

Resolved: Rainbow Falls Doe

          This month’s Doe case deviates from my attempts to shed more light on BIPOC cases, so to make up for it I will be covering two linked missing men of color next month. I feel that it’s important to show the good news side of true crime as well, so we all remember that these […]

The Missing: Dorien Deon Thomas

          This month’s missing persons case is the vanishing of Dorien Deon Thomas. I chose Dorien’s case as I’ve noticed all of the missing persons I’ve covered have been either white or female. It’s past time I’ve covered a male BIPOC – if you’re in the true crime community at all, you know that male missing […]

The Unsolved: Leroy Carter Jr

         Before we get into this, I want to start off by saying that this case does not have a lot of reputable sources online – which, as a hobbyist writer, is where I draw 99% of my information from. Lucky for me (and all of you!) Michael Whelan of the Unresolved podcast has done the […]

Let’s explore the case of the Ada Bones Jane Doe. The Discovery           Ada, Michigan is a small town on […]

The Missing: Kelsey Emily Collins

            This month’s missing persons case is one I cannot believe I have never heard of. It’s another one of those cases that I didn’t know about before doing research for this blog. And again, there’s no reason I shouldn’t have. Kelsey’s case is strange and well documented. Why aren’t there podcasts about her? Where are […]

The Unsolved: Victims of the Freeway Phantom

          This week, we’re going to take a look at not one, but SIX unsolved murders known as the Freeway Phantom murders. This is a case that, in my opinion, should have been solved. And I believe it would have been solved if the victims had been white children, but we will get into that at […]

The Unnamed: St. Louis Jane Doe

          This week we’re going to be discussing a very gruesome Doe case. Before  you read on, just know that this post contains details of a violent crime against a child. Reader discretion is strongly advised. Additionally, I won’t be posting any of the photos of the body, but if you […]

The Unsolved: LaVena Johnson

          As stated in my previous post, I will be focusing on black victims of crime for my True Crime posts (John/Jane Does, Missing Persons, Unsolved Murders) to amplify the message that Black Lives Matter. These stories deserve to be told and we need to say their names. Our first post will examine the unsettling death […]
