The Mysterious: Hunter S. Thompson’s Death

          In the past on this blog, we have discussed how creatives, especially writers, seem to be susceptible to mental illness and prone to suicide (not sure what I’m talking about? Read The Sylvia Plath Effect here). So, why has there been a surge of people believing that Hunter S. Thompson’s death was orchestrated by outside …

The Unnamed: Lisa (MA, 2000)

          This month’s Doe case is an extremely frustrating one, so buckle up. There isn’t a whole lot of information publicly available for the investigation into this Doe’s death, and the timeline of events is fairly murky. But we’ll do our best. So what led this Jane Doe into the situation that would eventually kill them? …

Two men of color went missing from Naples, Florida (hey again, Florida) in a four month period between October 2003 and January 2004. Their last known whereabouts both involve the same law enforcement officer, which has led to a lot of accusations throughout …

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: 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 …
