79. The Murder Game


It’s January 18, 1987, at the Alpine Manor Nursing home in Walker, Michigan when a nurse, who was making her rounds, went into the room of a 60-year-old Alzheimer’s patient named Marguerite Chambers. The older woman was unresponsive and not breathing. A team rushed in to revive Marguerite but it was too late. It seems that the woman died sometime during the night. Death is not uncommon in nursing homes but Marguerite was still pretty healthy and her death was not expected. Her family had been in to visit her just the day before and had brought their loved one a balloon bouquet. Her passing was a shock to them but being that she was in a later stage in life, they knew it would happen one day. As is standard practice the staff let the family know and that they needed to come and retrieve her belongings. It was only then that a family member noticed that one of the balloons that they have given their beloved mother and friend was missing. Did someone take one of Marguerite’s balloons and her life? The answer would come but not before others would die just as mysteriously.

78. To Protect and Serve...and Murder : Gerard Schaefer

On July 21, 1972, a man named Gerard John Schaefer picked up two teenage girls who were hitch-hiking. Schaefer told 17-year-old Pamela Wells and 18-year-old Nancy  Trotter that hitchhiking was illegal in Martin County. It wasn’t, but they were young, so they believed him. What this stranger had planned for these two young teens would, thankfully, not happen. The story these two girls would tell officers would lead to a trail of victims and from an unlikely suspect.

A huge thank you to Cynthia Boatright Raleigh for sending us the script for this week's episode.  Her excellent research and writing skills make for an
excellent story.

On December 2, 1954, Mary Holland was found dead on the floor of her liquor store bathroom.  Her hands were tied behind her back and a .38 caliber bullet in her skull.

Three weeks later Wesley Kerr was found dead at the gas station where he worked. Hands tied behind his back and with a gunshot wound to the head. 

It seemed Evansville, Indiana had a killer on the loose.

76. The Jamison Family Mystery


On October 16, 2009, in Red Oak Oklahoma hunters come across a truck on the side of the road near the top of Panola Mountain. As they start to look around and investigate, they notice that the truck is locked but there is a dog inside. The puppy didn’t look well as it seemed like she had been inside this truck for a long time. The hunters fan out and look around to see if they can find the owner of the truck but have no luck. They call in the Latimer County Sheriff’s to get help.  Investigators arrive, look in the truck and they know immediately something was not right. What happened to the Jamison family?
