Default Do you remember your FIRST Unsolved Mysteries episode??

For me, UM was can't miss TV as a kid, despite the fact that it scared the crap out of me and gave me at least one nightmare that I can remember.. but that's for a different thread.

Of course memories aren't always reliable, but the first episode I remember watching live was the one with Barbara Jean Horn's case on November 16, 1988.

Two things always stuck with me about that particular segment-
1. One of only two times I can remember RS doing an on-screen interview, the other being the special Live Telecast where he interviews Jenny Pratt and her family.
2. They had so little to go on, they actually spent air time showing pictures of the TV box she was found in, in case someone recognized that.

I forgot the womans name but they were from Portugal I believe. She married her cousin and he ended up murdering her.(They were writing letters to each other when they were young and IIRC, she had a double wedding with her sister) I wish I could remember the name but I don’t.. I just remember he killed her with a butcher knife.

Anyone remember the name of this case?

The very first segment I remember seeing was Wendy Camp. I was about five or six and remember asking my mom what was wrong with "that lady's arm".

The first full episode I ever sat through was a Lifetime rerun of the December 11, 1991 episode (Chad Maurer, Lorene Roberts, Spanish Lotto scam, Vess family lost love case) in early 1997 when I was eight.

Yes very clearly to the point that I'll never forget it. The first broadcast of "Son Of Sam" (pt. 1) from the fall of 1988.

The victim was Alice Vieira. Killed by her husband (and cousin) David Vieira. He was eventually found and admitted to the crime. It really makes me mad that after he apologizes to the her mother he has the nerve to say "I'm sorry for having killed your daughter. There's nothing else I could do"...

First UM segment was Boys On The Tracks. Sitting in a completely dark living room at a young age watching it at night. You don't forget that, lol.

Not sure if it was my first episode - but I very clearly remember seeing the Tara Calico photo on UM as a kid and it scaring the absolute Bejeezus out of me.

I can't remember the exact episode was my first, looking back at the episode guide I was watching as early as October '88. The first ones to make a real impression on me were Jeremy Bright & Matthew Chase (the ATM photo especially)

The first segment I ever remember seeing was Kevin Hughes, the Music Row murder in Nashville. I couldn't have been more than 5 and it scared the **** out of me throughout my childhood.

Also a very vivid memory of the Tallman home haunting segment (again, very frightening for a child).

I remember one of the first segments I've seen which scared me as a kid..it was about a man in the military who died under mysterious circumstances. I think the killer tied a balloon or something around his wrist, later his body was found slightly lifted or at a strange angel. They found a box or something of his and they also found abrasions and cuts on his body which indicated he was attacked. The military gave his family a hard time and insisted it was suicide despite the evidence. They also tried covering up the fact that he had this box of belongings there.

I also remember another seventh Keith warren. That one breaks my heart till this day.. Very sad. If someone could help me figure out the first segment that would be appreciated.

The Halloween episode from October 26, 1988. My mom and sister were down in Madison for the day and my mom wanted to get home in time to watch Unsolved Mysteries as they were going to profile a haunted house in the town that she grew up in, Horicon, WI. Yep, the infamous bunk bed segment. To this day, my cousins and my sister and myself drive past that house and get chills!

Mine was at my cousin's house, and it was the Cash-Landrum case with that diamond shaped UFO.

Same here. Great way to get introduced to Unsolved Mysteries with the Queen Mary and Tallman hauntings. They scared the crap out of me, but I loved it.

I saw a portion of the first special (Jan. 1987) when it was profiling Roger Wheeler and John Callahan's murders (I asked my grandmother what jai alai was) but I don't remember watching the other segments.

I really can recall the special hosted by Karl Malden in May of 1987, which profiled Bob Weeks and Eleanor Farber's murder by John Burns. Also later memories of the episode featuring Shannon Mohr's death being staged by her husband Dave Davis.

Can't remember the suspects name, but my first vivid memory of UM was a hit and run segment from NY (I believe) about a guy who hit a kid and then sped off never to be found. IIRC, the guy whom they thought was responsible had a weird, Hispanic nickname.
