"Residents of two suburban Maryland counties were on the alert today for suspicious signs which might lead police to a masked rapist who has attacked 26 women over the last year. Officials of Prince George's County, which adjoins the District of Columbia, disclosed Friday that massive police efforts to trap the attacker had failed and the public was being called on for help. Police said the man's usual method of operation was to force his way into dwellings, threaten his victims with a knife or gun and assault them He wears Ku Klux Klan type hood, its color and material varying, according to his victims. Completely Clothed He has usually worn gloves and has been so completely clothed that until recently his race or age could not be determined, police said. But this sketchy description was finally compiled: White, in his late teens or early 20s, slender and of medium height. Police said the rapist's victims ranged in age from 18 to 50. When a victim's husband was at home, the husband was tied up and the woman assaulted in another room. Some of the women were beaten, officials said, and their homes burglarized."

Arturo Alva-Moreno Was World Trade Center Victim #2,754. Or Was He?
His daughter is certain he died at the World Trade Center. But as far as the government is concerned, he never even existed
Her father said he worked at the top of the Tower, midway between the ground and the sky. So he must have been in there, somewhere, when the plane hit and the Tower vanished on September 11, 2001.

He wasn’t supposed to be there. Not really. He was an undocumented immigrant. He had no work permit. His papers were forged. But he was definitely there, right at the top. She was sure of it. Where else could he be?

Arturo had told her he washed dishes at Windows on the World, the fancy restaurant at One World Trade Center, up on the 106th floor. He made a few bucks an hour, but he sent cash to Mexico whenever he could. The cash stopped in the second week of September 2001, and there were no more stories from the restaurant at the top of the world. But there was another phone call. The man on the line was from the Mexican Consulate, the one opposite the Chrysler Building. Someone had found Arturo’s wallet in the rubble, hidden beneath the twisted metal and scattered debris. The call confirmed what Laura already knew: Her father died in the World Trade Center.

“Many Mexicans worked in the U.S. under a false name or with a fake ID, which made it difficult for their loved ones to claim them,” Padilla explains. They — the undocumented — worked menial jobs, had no Social Security numbers, got paid in cash, sacrificed their identities. Arturo was part of this underground labor force — one of the invisible, careful not to leave a paper trail. Now, the feds wanted proof he lived in New York — “A document with his name on it, or a witness,” Padilla remembers — or his family wouldn’t receive a death certificate.

Padilla chews over the few clues. “Maybe Arturo was living under a different name like many other illegal immigrants,” he says. “But maybe he didn’t live in New York. Maybe he didn’t die in the 9/11 attacks. Who knows! The family’s payment from the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund could’ve reached $7 million. Can you believe that?”

He wonders if Arturo seized an opportunity — the ultimate opportunity — to disappear; if he exploited an American tragedy. “Many people I talked to in New York thought he was alive and living in California,” Padilla says. “I was thinking of searching for him, but I need time and money to do that.”

Seven-year-old Yamato Tanooka of Hokkaido, Japan, was throwing rocks at people during a family outing in summer 2016. His parents wanted to teach him a lesson. So they pulled over by the side of a road next to the woods, removed him from the car, and drove away. They returned five minutes later, hoping that their punishment had worked. But he was already gone.

Yamato remained missing for six days. The woods had tall grass and plants that the search party needed to comb through to be sure that they didn’t miss finding him, in case his body was lying on the ground. It was cold at night, and it also rained, which made it seem even more hopeless to find him alive.

Meanwhile, Yamato truly believed that his parents had abandoned him because of his bad behavior. He decided to go deeper into the woods to look for shelter. After walking for 5 kilometers (3 mi), Yamato came upon an empty military base with small huts. He opened the door of one and found a thin mattress on the floor. He was able to sleep comfortably. But aside from drinking rainwater, he had nothing to eat for six days.

When the search party finally found him, Yamato was taken to the hospital. Aside from hunger and mild hypothermia, he physically recovered.

A man who claimed in a controversial documentary that he was U.S. Special Forces soldier lost during the Vietnam War is an imposter, according to the missing soldier’s family, which cited DNA test results.

In “Unclaimed,” Dang Tan Ngoc alleged he was Army Sgt. 1st Class John Hartley Robertson, who went missing following a helicopter crash over Laos in 1968. The film, which premiered in the U.S. last year at the annual GI Film Festival, evoked impassioned responses from all sides of the POW/MIA issue.

At the time of the documentary, friends and members of Robertson’s family were convinced he was the missing GI. But, it was not to be.

Gail Metcalf, daughter of Robertson’s sole surviving sister, Jean Robertson-Holley, who was featured during an emotional reunion with Ngoc in the film, thanked Faunce and others for bringing Ngoc to their attention, something they have accused the government of neglecting to do. The family members reiterated that they believe the man is an American and will continue to seek his U.S. family.

On July 3, 1990, a traveling portrait photographer from the Vancouver, Washington area walked into a local tavern. He had been in the Roseburg area working at a local store taking family photographs for about two weeks. He invited two women, Tracy Lee Poirier and Tamara Marie Upton, to a game of pool.

The next day the authorities found his naked four foot-four inch body on the Umpqua River near Elk Island not far from the Washington Avenue Bridge. He had been kidnapped, robbed, and killed in a “caveman-style killing”, this according to prosecutor Bill Marshall. The women had killed him by beating him with rocks. Later the prosecutor said that the man, Donald James Fish, had traveler’s checks and cash stolen from him. Police said the motive was robbery.

“Shortly after the slaying” the women were arrested. During this arrest it was found that they were driving a stolen vehicle from the Salem area.


Tracy Lee Poirier and Tamara Marie Upton, of Keizer, Oregon were charged with aggravated murder, kidnapping, and robbery.

Flash forward to May 1997. Tracy Lee Poirier is temporarily transferred to the Coos County Jail and enters into a romantic relationship with one of her guards, Pamela Kay Trimble. Even after Poirier is transferred back to the Womens Correctional Center she and Trimble continue to correspond.

In July 1998 Trimble quits her job after Coos County officials find out that she was still corresponding with Poirier and they had informed her of an impending investigation. She would have been fired if it was proven that there was private communication between the two women. Later, it was verified in the news agencies that Trimble did believe she was in love with Poirier and she had conspired to help her escape from prison by trying to get tools to her while incarcerated.

Poirier was found missing from her jail cell on August 28, 1998 after a routine breakfast time check. Apparently, she had squeezed through her jail cell window that had been pried from the outside by Trimble. Then she fled the prison on foot through a newly created hole in the fencing installed at the perimeter of the prison. She had to cross Mill Creek on foot before she could get into Trimble’s red pick-up truck. The pick up was found abandoned two days after the escape was made.

This escape led to a month long road trip where the two women, using the assumed names of Robin and Ciara Marcel, lied their way from Oregon to Providence, Rhode Island. First they headed to San Francisco but, they left San Francisco August 31 and arrived in Providence via bus on September 3. They told folks that they had left Washington state and that Poirier was escaping an abusive husband.

The FBI and California State Police assisted in looking for the women while they were on the lam.

Finally, the two women were caught on Sept 28, 1998 in Rhode Island after being recognized. A television show, “America’s Most Wanted,” had ran the story in order to help law enforcement.

“Baby Doe” – Cold Case Case # 040491-0016

On April 4, 1991 at 10:00 AM Nags Head Officers were dispatched to the 8600 block of East Tides Drive in reference to a deceased infant in the trash can rack. When officers responded, the found the mummified body of an infant. An autopsy revealed the infant was Caucasian with blond hair. The infant was approximately 5-7 pounds at birth and 18-19 inches in length. The sex is unknown due to the condition of the body when it was discovered. The estimated age of the infant is less than 3 month. It is estimated the body was placed in the trash rack in February.

The autopsy suggests that the baby was killed with an object jammed into it's throat (death record says hair curler) which caused asphyxiation.

A forthcoming documentary suggests a Hobart woman who's serving a life sentence in prison for her role in two killings may have been a serial killer who also fed the remains of her dismembered lover to neighbors at a barbecue in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Investigation Discovery, a crime-themed cable network that reaches 85 million U.S. households, will air the true crime thriller "Dead North" about Kelly Cochran, a Northwest Indiana woman who pleaded guilty to the 2016 murder of her husband, Jason Cochran, at their home on the 7100 block of Mississippi Street of Hobart.

Cochran told Hobart police she injected her husband with heroin and smothered him with a pillow as revenge for the murder of her lover Christopher Regan, who she lured to her other home in Iron River, Michigan, with the promise of sex. Her husband burst out of the basement and shot Regan in the head with a .22 caliber rifle during the act, which the couple had plotted after making a "pact to kill off anyone involved in extramarital affairs," according to the documentary.

"Dead North" reveals that former Iron River police chief Laura Frizzo investigated whether Kelly Cochran had as many as nine victims.

The upcoming show follows Frizzo as her investigation of missing person Regan leads her "down a rabbit hole that alludes to cannibalism, reveals human remains and uncovers a deadly love triangle," according to Investigation Discovery.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...h-noisy-pagan/
Adruid witch was attacked and stabbed by his neighbours after they had enough of his noisy pagan rituals, a court heard.

Mark and Anne Denyer attacked John Bennett as he conducted his latest back garden ceremony, which involved chanting and rhythmic beating of drums - something he did every full moon.

Denyer exchanged insults over the fence with Mr Bennett, who goes by the Pagan name Bearheart, before storming round to his bungalow with his wife

Mrs Denyer, 52, armed herself with an umbrella which she used to hit the bearded druid over the head with while her 56-year-old husband had grabbed a carving knife from the kitchen and made a "short jab" with it towards his victim.

Because Mr Bennett weighs 22 stone and has a "big belly" the blade didn't penetrate his abdomen and he suffered superficial injuries.
But fellow residents spoke of the strange noises and smells that sometimes wafted from Mr Bennett's garden.

One neighbour, who didn't want to be named, said: "We sometimes heard odd, not normal, music and smells like joss sticks and things. John has a personalised number plate for his car that says 666, which is a bit worrying.

"I think he's quite open about saying he's a witch."

http://unsolvedmysteries.wikia.com/wiki/Mary_Agnes_Gross
https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/150647137/mary-agnes-gross

Mary Agnes Gross is the daughter of fifty-five-year-old Marlys Thomas. When Marlys was twenty, she left her husband to raise her daughter on her own. In 1962, she moved to Minnesota to be close to her mother. On June 12, 1962, she went into labor, but after she gave birth, Marlys was told that her daughter died shortly after being born. Marlys had been sedated during the delivery, but she does have vague images of her daughter moving. While being wheeled out of her hospital room, Marlys passed a bassinet which held Mary Agnes. She asked to see her daughter, and when she was shown her, Marlys did not believe her baby was deceased. Mary Agnes was not purple and looked as if she were sleeping, not dead. She also had marks on her head from the forceps that the doctor used during delivery. Marlys noticed that her daughter had long, full dark brown hair. Furthermore, the hospital did not seem interested in an autopsy to explain how her daughter died nor allowed her photos of her daughter's body. Her mother was also not allowed to take pictures of the baby at the funeral home.

Soon after Mary Agnes's supposed death, a close friend of Marlys, Judy Voges, came to see the body of the baby and did not believe that it was young Mary Agnes. Judy did not see any marks on the baby's head, and the hair on the baby was light brown, and that there was not much of it; this was the opposite of what Marlys saw. Although Marlys was too sick for her baby's funeral, her mother did attend and noticed another family she did not know in attendance. There was only one fresh grave in the area. It was claimed that another family had lost an infant the same day her daughter died.
That infant was named Pamela Rae Dickey. A week after the funeral, Marlys was well enough to visit her daughter's grave. Even though there was apparently another baby that died, there was only one grave there. Three months after "losing" her daughter, Marlys received a photograph of an unidentified family, that included a husband, wife, and three children, one of which was a newborn baby girl. There was no letter or return address. When Marlys looked at the photograph, she felt that the baby looked just like her estranged husband, Mary Agnes's father. She did not recognize the people in the photo, nor did anyone in her family. She believed that someone was trying to tell her that her daughter was alive.

One year later, Marlys bought a headstone for her daughter's grave, but found that the stone had been placed a few feet off to the side. Though she moved away, Marlys periodically visited her daughter's grave. On one visit in 1989, she was shocked to find Pamela's gravestone placed atop her daughter's grave. Marlys questioned the funeral director and he said that her daughter was not buried there.
Marlys began doing more research into her daughter's supposed death. Marlys discovered that Pamela had passed away just a few hours before Mary Agnes, on the same day in the same hospital. Also, they were buried on the same day. Marlys was surprised to find her ex-husband's last name (Gross) written in the corner of one of Pamela's funeral papers. Even more puzzling, hospital records stated that Mary Agnes was healthy at birth, but the death certificate said that she had never drawn a breath. The birth certificate said that she was born at 6:23PM, but the death certificate said she died at 6:20PM, three minutes before she was born.
Marlys asked Pamela's mother Margaret for help, but she preferred not to disturb her daughter's grave. Nonetheless, Marlys had to make sure that Mary Agnes's body had not been moved without her knowledge. In November 1996, Marlys had the grave below her daughter's headstone exhumed. The remains were old, but DNA testing was able to be done. The tests confirmed that the child buried there was not Mary Agnes Gross. Also, the tests confirmed that the remains were not Pamela Dickey's either. Marlys showed the photographs her mother took of Mary Agnes's casket to Margaret Dickey. Margaret identified the casket as Pamela's and that her husband had bought it. She also said that another family was at her daughter's funeral that day; the family was Marlys's family.

Marlys now believes that Pamela is buried underneath her own tombstone and that another baby was buried where Mary Agnes was supposed to be. Marlys now believes that because she was a young, single mother that the hospital decided to give Mary to another family, which was in the picture sent to her. She hopes that she will one day find her daughter. Mary Agnes was born on June 16, 1962, at Worthington Regional Hospital in Worthington, Minnesota.

http://www.bakersfield.com/archives/police-went-to-angelo-mendoza-s-apartment-shortly-before-he/article_16ba906c-d0fd-5081-8e0c-6d8d56ff1ffd.html
In May 2009, 34-year-old Angelo Mendoza Sr. went on what may have been a PCP-induced spree of nightmarish acts, the worst of which included biting his four-year-old son’s left eye out of his face and maiming the other. But that wasn’t the end of it for Mendoza Sr. After mangling his son’s face, he made his way to the backyard of an empty house, chained himself to a tree, and asked a neighbor to “look into the Sun and pray with him.” He then began hacking at his own legs with an ax and a ceramic plate. He later tried to tell police that he and his son had been victims of the Mexican Mafia.

Frightened by his father’s crazed state, four-year-old Angelo Mendoza Jr. attempted to hide behind a large dresser, where neighbors later found him naked and unconscious. He shook violently when he awoke as police arrived, and after being taken to a hospital in Fresno, California, he told a volunteer, “My daddy ate my eyes.”

Angelo Mendoza Sr. was charged with mayhem, torture, and child cruelty. In February 2011, however, he was found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Thankfully, Mendoza Jr.’s right eye recovered.

https://newsok.com/article/2025799/woman-found-guilty-in-suffocation-of-lawton-girl-life-sentence-imposed

The retrial of Jackie M. Roubideaux, accused of first-degree murder in the 1976 suffocation of a three-year-old Lawton girl, begins Monday in Comanche County District Court here.

A four-week trial early last year involving testimony from 64 witnesses ended in a mistrial when the jury could not reach a verdict.

Comanche County District Attorney Dick W. Tannery said the investigations of the girl's suffocation and a similar infant death in 1977 have been the most extensive in the county's history.

Miss Roubideaux, who was charged in October 1979, is accused of locking Mary Elizabeth Carpitcher and her twin sister, Augustine Lena "Tina" Carpitcher, in an abandoned refrigerator in April 1976. Tina survived.

The children had disappeared from their maternal grandmother's home.

Tina and the body of her twin sister were found two days later after other children playing nearby heard Tina's cries. She said she stayed alive by breathing through a small hole in the refrigerator.

Tina, now 10 years old, has been asked 13 times to recall in court her ordeal in the refrigerator. She testified before three judges in an adult certification hearing, a preliminary hearing and the first trial. She is expected to be the key witness for the prosecution again.

Tannery said the state also alleges Miss Roubideaux is responsible for the death of 19-month-old Nima Louise Carter, who was abducted from her Lawton home in October 1977. After a 23-day search, the child's body was found in a refrigerator inside a vacant, dilapidated duplex about a mile from where the Carpitcher children were discovered.

No one has been charged with the Carter child's death.

http://murderpedia.org/male.R/r/ryan-michael-wayne.htm

Michael W. Ryan is just about as deplorable a person as you can find. During the 1980s, he was a leader of a religious white supremacist group, which focused on the evilness of Jews, the destruction of authority, and the inferiority of other races. This alone makes him pretty terrible, but the reason for his imprisonment is what will really make you queasy. 

In 1982, Ryan was arrested for the murder of five-year-old Luke Stice, the son of one of his followers, as well as the murder of another member of his society named James Thimm. Reports indicated that Ryan had, over the course of several days, abused the child (including forcing him to have sex with his father) before killing him. Ryan then beat Thimm, forced him to have sexual intercourse with a goat, and then eventually skinned him while he was still alive. Thim eventually died when Ryan stomped on his skinned and bleeding chest. 

It's not surprising that Ryan was sentenced to death, though he died on death row in 2015 before his execution.

http://charleyproject.org/case/barre-kallan-monigold

One night in 1979 Barre Kallan Monigold went outside to turn his car light off and never returned."Monigold was last seen at a friend's apartment complex in the 3900 block of Old Bullard Road in Tyler, Texas on June 17, 1979. He had been on a date that night and he and his date had gone to his friend's second-floor apartment and fallen asleep on the floor.

Between 1:00 and 1:30 a.m., Monigold's friend woke him up to tell him that the dome light in his car, a blue 1978 Monte Carlo, was on. Monigold went outside to turn the light off and never returned. While he was gone, his friend was in the kitchen, which overlooked the parking lot; the car was thirty to forty feet away.

Monigold's friend didn't hear any unusual noises. After about five minutes he went outside and called for Monigold, but Monigold was gone. The Monte Carlo's driver's side door was found unlocked and there were no indications of a struggle.

Monigold left all his clothing and personal belongings behind, and he also left money in his bank account. He worked as a car salesman at King Chevrolet at the time of his disappearance. He had studied karate and could have defended himself if attacked.

After his disappearance there were persistent rumors that he had been murdered, and another story that he had fled to Jamaica after a tipster offered up Monigold's phone number there, but little evidence is available in his case.Some individuals claimed to have witnessed Barre being forced into another vehicle although these claims were never proven. A big theory was that Barre was killed by a jealous ex-boyfriend. The girl he was dating had just ended a relationship that was described as volatile. A different man later confessed to the murder although it turned out to be false. It remains unsolved.

https://counteverymystery.blogspot.com/2018/01/the-murder-of-terry-sutter.html

On the day of September 1st, 1973 15 year old Terry Sutter spent the day mowing the lawns. His mother had forgotten to pick him up, so he had walked home. He had wanted to spend that night at the movies and bowling alley with his friends. So his mother brought him to town, and dropped him off in Frankfort, Michigan. He was to stay with his Grandmother and his curfew was at 11 pm.

His parent's were shocked to hear that Terry didn't stay the night let alone arrive at his grandmothers house. He wasn't a difficult type of kid. He was the type who understood curfews and never broke them. This worried his family and they went out to search for him. The police did not take the family seriously as they believed he was hiding out so he didn't have to go to school.

That afternoon though Terry's body was found on the beach of Lake Michigan by a tourist. It was initially believed he had maybe died from a fall from a cliff and into Lake Michigan. It was found that his lungs were not filled with water, but instead with sand. Pointing towards being murdered. It's possible that his face was held down in sand and he suffocated to death. His neck and head were covered in bruises and his eyes were filled with sand.

Somebody then began to vandalize the poor 15 year olds grave. His head stone would get vandalized, flower pots put there for flowers were broken and even the bush planted there by an older sister was ripped out. Eventually it was decided Terry would lie in an unmarked grave as they removed the head stone.
