Bundy: Donna Manson (Confessed)

          Today’s case in the Bundy series is the first in which we have an actual confession. We don’t have to speculate whether Bundy was involved in the disappearance here, but we still have so many blanks to fill. If we take Bundy at his word, we know he killed Donna Manson – but no sign […]

Bundy: Vicki Hollar (Suspected)

          As promised in the previous post, there is not a big jump in time between the disappearance of Rita Jolly and the case we will be examining today. Like Rita’s disappearance, this case also took place in Oregon in 1973. As seems to be typical for nearly all of the cases in this series, and […]

Bundy: Rita Jolly (Suspected)

          For this next post we continue to wade in murky waters. We’re jumping ahead to 1973, which is a smaller gap than we’ve seen so far – and we will not see a time period as we continue with this series. Again, not a lot is known about Rita Jolly, her disappearance, or the ensuing […]

Bundy: Joyce LePage (Suspected)

          As we move along in this series, we get into murkier waters. We’re also jumping forward five years from the last post.

The Unsolved: Jeannette DePalma

          This month’s unsolved murder is a case that has fascinated me for a long, long time. It brings us back to the seeds of the Satanic Panic in the Northeast United States, and is a perfect case study for how fast local rumors and superstition can cloud and derail a death investigation. This post will […]

Legend Has It: Bunnyman Bridge

            This month’s urban legend is a classic that I have wanted to cover for a very long time. It’s got all of the individual elements of a lasting creepy legend: horrifying setting, unknown and dangerous entity, a genesis seemingly rooted in reality, and some subtle moral leanings (don’t stay out late, don’t disturb nature, etc).

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 […]
