I remember watching that thinking "and that's your evidence? No microchip, no tattoo, no collar?". It was an otherwise fascinating episode ruined by such a ridiculous 'miracle'.

In the Rufino Castaneda segment, they show "Laurie" shooting pool with a male friend who gives her money for a drink, and then she goes to the bar and gets the drink before walking back over and being gang rushed and pushed outside into a car. The segment never mentions the male friend again (was he in the bathroom at the time, did he witness any of this, etc.). I hate when UM would introduce people in a segment (sometimes out of nowhere like the other male shown in the Larry Gibson segment) and then never mention them again.

I noticed this, too. I remember this case being profiled on AMW and another crime show that aired on Lifetime in the early 2000s before Castaneda was caught, but I'm drawing a blank on the name of the 3rd show and if either of the other shows even mentioned the male friend she was at the bar with beyond them just shooting pool.

Hopefully these haven’t been mentioned too often:

1. Amy Billig wasn’t kidnapped, she ran away with the bikers because she didn’t like her family.

2. Sally McNelly was cheating on Shane Stewart with someone in the “cult” and that’s what their murders were really about.

3. Matt Flores was killed because he was involved in something illegal.

4. Larry Gibson didn’t kill his son.

Not at all unlike an author doing research to create characters and settings for a new novel.
Potentially unpopular: I would absolutely read said novel. Say what you will about Georgia Rudolph, but damned if she wasn't creative.

The Brad Bishop case.

Bishop was a University graduate who had a wife and family, and worked for the State Department. From reading about the case in depth, I actually came to feel sorry for him. His mother was an absolute monster, who routinely called him a failure,laughed at his insecurity, and was extremely emotionally abusive. She would say he was "washed up" and a "loser/failure."

His wife would join in and berate her husband as a loser, who was going nowhere in life. This is a guy who worked at a very respectable job and provided for his family. One day after being passed over for a promotion, he snapped and killed his family.

Killing his children was horrible and inexcusable, but I feel no sympathy for the mother. Sadly some men have breaking points, and for a mother to do that to her successful child is horrendous. I was actually glad he killed her. Not sure if the wife just got caught up in belittling her husband as time went on, but I did not exactly feel much sympathy for her either.

You're....glad he killed his mother?



I've read about the case in depth as well (though I haven't read the book by Bishop's colleague.) From every source I have read, the only reference for which you speak of regarding the mother and the wife comes from an Unsolved Mysteries quote by Roy Harrell. He said....

"Brad always thought there was something lacking in himself. This thought was echoed to him constantly by his mother and to some extent, his wife who told him he was washed up, a nobody and going nowhere in his career."

Roy Harrell is no longer considered a reliable source as police have pointed out how his stories have changed. They had also tested his memory in the past and he said things that made no sense. I have since come to believe that Harrell got a little too caught up in the "celebrity" of being the last person to see Bishop before the murders and tried to color up his memories of everything having to do with Bishop.

All other non-Roy Harrell interviews with the people in Bishop's life never mentioned any of this and they actually gave the impression that Bishop's family members would never DARE say anything as risky as calling him a failure.

It should also be noted that the only reason Brad was able to afford his house was because his mother gave him the money. Yet despite this and despite Bishop's credentials, the family was badly in debt at the time of the murders. Bishop's mother also provided 24 hour care for his three children, which allowed Annette the time to start taking classes at the University of Maryland. This does not sound like a woman who lived every waking moment to abuse her son at every possible chance but...that's just my humble opinion.

Strange. I remember it being accepted as fact in the 90s. Perhaps he had some kind of psychotic breakdown. I just read a couple of articles an horr ago,and it mentions overkill- that he especially beat his children with such rage and anger that he literally smashed their skulls in.

Are you absolutely certain about that? The two articles I came across discussed this, but concluded that their debt was not severe at all, in fact it was as what was to be expected of a upper middle class family at that time period.

Dana Satterfield's murder and Angela Hammond's abduction have some striking similarities: both had key witnesses who observed the perpetrator fleeing the area/scene, both had witnesses describe the vehicle of the perpetrator, and police initially suspected the significant others before ruling them out. But Satterfield's case was never scrutinized (prior to update) to the degree that Hammond's case was.

Interestingly enough, I used to hold a potentially "unpopular opinion" about the Deborah Poe case that I've just recently begun to rethink. I used to believe that the ever elusive "Megadeth Man" was simply another bystander who at most may have decided to take advantage of the empty store and help himself to the till. Recently however, crystaldawn wrote an insightful blog entry that touched on the Poe case and provided some details that I wasn't aware of, which caused me to rethink the issue altogether.

Bishop's mother gave him the down payment for the family house which was $30,000. That would equal about $152,000 in today's money. Financial troubles were constant. And at the time, the IRS was auditing its taxes.

I'm having trouble finding the extremely detailed article that covered this. I'll copy and paste when I finally find it.
