I have three that I’ve seen either as a kid or recently that have stuck with me.

1. Look At It Omar. I was about 7 or 8 when it first aired and so it really creeped me out, I always wondered what happened with that fire. I was happy when I saw it again on Prime that they had solved the case.

2. Alberta Elaine. This I don’t remember seeing as a kid but it has stuck with me since I saw it recently on Prime. First of all, I just had a daughter born so the idea of not being here as she grows up would be horrible to me. I can’t imagine what that guy went through all those years. As the case played out on tv, all I could think was that we will get some happy reunion video at the end. Sort of expect. Then it ends and the update is that the daughter was murdered in an explosion 30 years earlier. Ouch. Almost felt like a gut punch because that guy looking for his daughter seeemed like a really good guy and you wanted him to have a happy ending.

3. Men in Black. I was a kid when this came out and I thought it was creepy. Especially since my cousin was a huge conspiracy nut and since he was in his late teens at that point was able to talk me in to believing anything. I recently rewatched it. As an adult I could just sit back and laugh.

I've mentioned in this thread that the David Hurley case haunts me the most. To elaborate on that it's the circumstances. Not just the shooting, but when he arrived home, his wife woke up to his voice in the middle of the night and to him telling her he'd been shot. That to me is one of the creepiest reenactments ever. I can't begin to imagine what went through his wife's head at that moment. Maybe I'm crazy but the utter sadness/pointlessness of all of it is why I find it haunts me so much. I pray they find the scum that did it.

It was a senseless shooting. And another tragic factor was that he appeared to be doing fine once he arrived at the hospital when out of nowhere, he went in to acute cardiac arrest.

According to the Unsolved wiki page, authorities stated that they have a suspect in the case that they believe is responsible, but that they do not have enough evidence to charge him.

You just want to reach through the screen and give him as a hug as you hear him describe watching his wife and life companion be gunned down right infront of him and how he doesn't really care if he lives or dies because life without her just isn't the same.
The Blind River Rest Stop is one of those segments that I just can’t handle. For all the jokes about the silly UFO and ghost re-enactments, Blind River proves that the people involved with the show could produce a damn good, low-budget horror short. Gord’s interview just makes it even more harrowing; you can see the raw pain carved onto his face, and you know he really means it when he says he wished he had died that night with his wife. While I know there is no such thing as closure, I always hoped that Gord somehow managed to make a happy life for himself in the subsequent years and knew some joy.

Though the scariest part of the case for me had to be the complete lack of any clear motive. Yeah, murder is always bad, but it’s easier to understand, once you have some kind of motive to work with. Like “I killed him for the insurance money” or “I killed her because how dare she think of leaving me for another man” or “I just wanted to rob someone but they put up more of a fight than I thought things went to hell,” something along those lines. Even “I’m a sadist who enjoys hurting people,” while scary, would make some sense.

The Blind River Killer didn’t get anything from the crime, except for the satisfaction that comes from killing two complete strangers. If he did get any money or jewelry from his victims, it was probably barely enough to pay for a few meals.

I would have to say the Wackerhagen case also sticks with me. The police seem to have an idea who the culprit of the murder(s) is, but won't release the information publicly. After Jayme Closs was rescued in WI after her abductor had murdered her parents and held her in captivity, I couldn't help but think of this case and wonder if we'll ever find out who abducted the Wackerhagens and killed Dub's girlfriend.

I think you need to say "abducted and killed the Wackerhagens".. Not a chance in hell they're alive after all this time.

I wish we knew what evidence they uncovered a few years ago. My suspicion on this is that Dub was involved, knowingly or not, with drugs via him being a trucker and Chance was taken to keep Dub in line. "You don't do what we say, we'll kill the boy"

Of course, once his usefulness was over.. Both were killed.

I was in the shower this morning thinking about the Megan Curl case. What a horrible and sad case. What makes it even more strange that the guy wasn't ever found even though the neighbor got an excellent look at him.

There are many I often think of even now.

Debbie Wolfe, that one gave me nightmares! Very badly botched case.

Orange socks, could that not be solved with DNA, as the victims were found in fairly good condition?

Jeremy Bright, sounds like his friend Johnny took a secret to his grave.

That guy who ended up in the river for not buying the other guy's truck, which may have involved a ghost or just a newspaper reader with a hunch.

In the Travel Channel's new show, Mission Declassified, investigative journalist Christof Putzel will explore many historic mysteries including the Lindbergh kidnapping, Alcatraz escape, and Kennedy assassination.

Sharon Marshall, finally identified as Suzanne Sevakis. I wasn't sure this case would ever be solved. Suzanne was a very sweet, smart girl who could have had a wonderful future if Franklin Delano Floyd hadn't kidnapped her. The abuse she suffered during her short life is just heartbreaking. Franklin Delano Floyd is a soulless monster.

The segments that stuck with me the longest:
I-70 killer(the bridal shop in wichita is not far from where my in laws used to live)
David Hurley(happened not too far from me)
Michael Rosenblum(also local)
Christophe Day. the father just broke my heart. I know that on here i remember reading that the sister was thinking that he may not be dead and the mother was just saying so, but i saw no outcome of that search.

When the Jay Cook & Tanya Van Cuylenborg case was finally recently solved after 31 years thanks to forensic genealogy, I began to get excited over the thought of this also being used to solve the orange sock murders.

Bobbie Oberholtzer fought back against her attacker with a large key ring and he bled over her mitten...



If investigators are doing this kind of testing, they're keeping quiet about it. Identifying this man would close the chapter on the Oberholtzer side of the case. I'm not sure it would for Annette Schnee, outside of a confession. While it appears she had been raped because her clothes were in disarray, there was no DNA testing in 1982. Her body had been in the creek for 6 months before being found and I'm not sure what could have been tested.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that developments come along. This segment still haunts me 25 years later.

Absolutely. I agree with this. I think this is one that I expect will be solved because of the dna evidence.

Patsy wright is another one I always go back to because it’s in my hometown and aside from the UM segment there is not much media coverage that I know of. Robin did a good podcast about patsy.

Amy Bechtel is another case that stays with me and I have really wondered about it of late. I am also into running and the outdoors. she deserves justice.

The man in my avi comes to mind. I’ve always wondered if he lived a sad/lonely life. Did anyone ever wonder what happened to him? Tried to reach out to him & never did but not realizing or wondering why. Did he have a family? Not even immediate family but any cousins? Just a sad case all around

Maybe if filmrise had picked this up, someone would’ve remembered say an uncle who went missing & it was him but back then they were too young to realize what was going on

These two I always wondered about. 1) Annette- I used to live about 45 miles from Gallup in the heart of Navajo country so I was fascinated with the case when I first saw it. My gut feeling is the Mom knew something. However It could of been a freak that stalked the neighborhood. 2) Elizabeth - the case was just creepy and the whole thing scared me. And I was in my 20’s at the time. I resent her boyfriend for not calling her parents or stopping her from taking off.
On top of that, both cases had twists like the eyewitness accounts and in Annette’s case the phone calls. Been a fan of the show ever since Robert Stack hosted it. Made my Wednesday’s more interesting

I think I watched Doogie Howser afterwords to blunt some of the freaky cases on UM. lol
