Default People on UM You Liked

Here I am again with another one of my weird thread topics, but the "People On UM You Just Didn't Like" thread gave me the idea. Just as there's been people I've not liked on UM, there have been some that, for some reason, I've also kinda liked.

Here's a few:

Jeff Oberholtzer. He seemed like the most chill, mild-mannered man in the world. I never thought he "did it" and I was impressed with the way he never got belligerent or bitter even though everyone suspected him of committing the Orange Sock murders. I only wish his wife's killer could be found.

Dorothy Sova. Under her "mom" facade I think she's really a very streetwise woman with a very strong spirit.

Curtis Henry. He reminds me so much of my stepdad.



What about you guys?

Doyle Wheeler. An honest, straightforward, and likeable guy. Some people here think his story is bunk but I disagree. I believe him.

Norman Ladner's parents. Especially the mother as she was very strong and determined to get to the truth of what happened to her son. She was one who wouldn't be intimidated.

I always liked Colleen Ritter. I couldn't get over how strong she came across in the segment. Her ex-boyfriend stabs her parents to death, stabs her little brother and tries to kill her and she kept her composure and didn't even get emotional while while being interviewed. At the end of the segment, she even admitted that she's always thought of herself as emotionally strong and that even while Rick Church was on the run, she refused to let him ruin her life anymore than he already has. She couldn't have been any older than 18, 19 years old at the time. It was pretty amazing.

Debbie Baskin - everyone knows how I feel about this case. Debbie and Mark just seemed like your typical loving parents. When she started crying over how her youngest son will go to bed at night and say, "Please don't let grandma and grandpa steal me too," I just wanted to jump into the TV screen and hug her. Such a heartbreaking and bizarre case.

I said the same thing 2.5 years ago and still agree.

I'd also like to add Dr. William Roll to the list. That guy is a genius!

Crystal Spencer's boyfriend, Anton. Crystal must've meant a lot to him because he seemed really desparate to find out what really happened to her. Her death really raises a lot of questions, for instance wrong height and weight on her death certificate?

Bill Day--the Maryland Firefighter who's ex wife kidnapped their son Kristophe and didn't even bother to tell him that their son had died from Leukemia.

Christine Reinhart--the woman whos husband Craig disappeared and ended up having amnesia.

The Baskins-- I felt so bad for them when Debbie's parents kidnapped two of their children.

That's it for me.. for now!!

Yeah, Jeff Oberholtzer, I do not know what it was about the guy but I NEVER for an instant believed he did it. There was just something about him that told me the guy did not do it. Call it a gut feeling or whatever. Not that my gut is always right of course but I would say more often than not I judge people accurately based on the vibe I get. I just didnt get a killer vibe off of Oberholtzer.

Bill Day: For his patience and verve in the pursuit of his son.

Rose Hoffman: for her bravery

Maurice Rosenblum (RIP): for his hard work in trying to find his son Michael

Anton Kline - Crystal Spencer's boyfriend, he seemed like a real honest type of guy and supported Crystal in her line of work.

I always liked him, too. Yeah, he was older and liked the finer things in life. However, he seemed to love her for herself and understood that her stripping was to pay the bills, not a career choice. One can only imagine what kind of future those two could have had if someone hadn't ended Crystal's life.

well, the guy in my avatar of course.

CW Roddy: to put it simply, she's a hero.

the blind judge's original caretaker (not the one who robbed him): She seemed really devoted to the judge and her job, even to the point of staying on long enough until someone else came along, and although the new caretaker (Andelina Gonzales?, was that her name) was a fraud in the worst way, I don't think she had any way of knowing. Plus, when she suspected something fishy was going on, she investigated it even though it wasn't her job anymore. Now this was a woman that was dedicated. She seemed very genuine.

I'm not sure why, but I always thought that Annette Burnside's co-worker (the guy who was shot and interviewed in silhouette) was compelling. He had a voice that was reminiscent of a detective voice over in an old film noir.The comment about Burnside looking like he was going to enjoy a steak made me smile too.

I agree; I enjoyed listening to him.
