If a loved one of mine tells me they are getting death threats, grill them about everything. Ask them as many follow up questions about it as you can possibly think of. Tell other family/friends about it.

You'd think that would be obvious. But too many times, I saw interviewee's do next to nothing and once their loved one did in fact end up dead, they would always say, "I should have told someone. I should have found out more when I had the chance."

UM + reading true crime books has definitely taught me that, no matter what the situation, you NEVER EVER EVER EVER let someone take you to another location. If, god forbid, someone forces you in a car, DO WHATEVER IT TAKES to avoid being taken to that second location, where some sort of torture + death are pretty much guaranteed. Crash the car. Act crazy. Risk getting shot. Jump out of a moving vehicle. Try to grab the gun. Interfere with the driver's ability to steer. Make a huge scene. State that your father is the local police chief and BOY is this gonna attract huge publicity. State that you have AIDS or that you are a space alien with magical powers. Do anything at all to avoid getting taken somewhere!

UM actually did directly influence my actions the other day. Some friends and I were going to a casino after work, and the day before I was like, hmm, I'll need cash....I'll just swing by the drive-through ATM on my way out of work (I get off at 10:30pm). Then I thought, NO FREAKIN' WAY and hit up the grocery store's cash back option...in broad daylight lol.

Cool

Looking back at things I used to do I'm surprised that:

a) I was really that stupid
b) I'm not dead
c) I didn't become part of some sex trafficking deal

I drove to Ontario by myself a few years ago and a lot of my friends said I was crazy for doing so or for even considering it. At the time I was like, it's only an 8 hour drive how bad could it be? I wouldn't do it ever again because Unsolved Mysteries kind of gave me, I wouldn't say paranoia, but the idea that anything COULD happen. The "that only happens to _______ people" mentality pretty much disappeared from my head, so I do have UM to thank for that. The year I went was the same year people on the Maid of the Mist saw dismembered body parts by the Falls. It was an "oh crap" moment for me.

If you're alone in a place you're not too familiar with walk with a crowd of people. Safety in numbers. If the group of people look at you like you're nuts then oh well.

Avoid atms at all costs....especially college station(inside joke). Seriously though about 2 weeks ago someone at a bank down the road from my house got kidnapped from their car in the drive thru atm it was caught on tape.

Do not go to circleville Ohio.

Don't call your child 12 13 14 times a day it is too much. Or get caller ID if your mom calls that much.

Don't frequent truck stops ladies or guys.

Pass through rest stops and if you have an RV don't answer the door without a bazooka.

Don't smoke drugs and limit your alcohol intake.

Don't let your teen daughters date men 10 years older.

Don't pull over a guy with "plug your state militia" written on his tailgate without backup.

Don't let violent felons or dope dealers move in with you even if they are family.

Don't trespass.

Don't answer the door for creepy strangers and if they are named after Dan Marino or Ricky Nelson don't believe them.

Don't take a boat out to sea that has a history of MX problems and watch the weather first.

Be careful at billiard bars.

If you want to run away don't wander in the wilderness.

See the post from the last page. Speaking of that seg houston was a hotbed for crime back in the late 80s early 90s. UM could have setup shop there and still be making shows about all that crime.

Don't let anyone know where Julie is or who took Jonathan!



The moment that took the cake for me was the couple in the Dennis Depue segment who decided to follow him after they saw that he had a bloody sheet that he was trying to hide. It's amazing he didn't come after them.

I remember the first time I saw that seg how tense it was when they went to the yard where he dumped the evidence. And then when he was changing his plates. Some of the most tense moments ever shown. If you have driven in the country before you kind of put yourself in that moment. It's just you and that other car with no one else around.

I think this is the segment I was trying to remember the other day. The one where a couple suspected some guy had done something and basically followed him undaunted into trying to figure out what he was up to. It's like they didn't care that they could have been killed or hurt.

I forgot a major one. Be weary of false prophets and crazy cult like groups. Curanderos, bad preachers, cons etc.

Yeah I was being a smart... Trying to make it fun. I did and still learn a lot from watching the show. But seriously how did we live without caller ID and call waiting? I mean how would you tell your own mom that you need to get off the phone because you are expecting an important phone call? I'm sure we handled it ok lol. But it's crazy how technology has changed us. There were times as a kid that we had no home phone now I can't imagine not having a cell phone with caller ID etc.
