Default Cases where you SUSPECT there's more to the story, but can't prove it

We all know by now that UM liked to leave out certain relevant information about a victim in order to make for a more mysterious narrative. And with better online resources in the past decade or so, we're often able to Google a case a find out exactly what the segment didn't tell us. However, I emphasized the word 'suspect' in the thread title because we all have those cases where it seems like the segment isn't giving the whole story, but there's no article online to confirm our suspicions. Such cases usually have almost internet presence outside of UM-related links. Anyway, here are my choices:

* I know I say this a lot, but I really believe that Charlie Sigmin may have had an abusive side when he drank that he was possibly "unlucky in love" for a valid reason. What Ann did was certainly wrong, but I think there was definitely a lot more to his murder than just "crazy Satanic b!tch randomly murders good all-American Christian man". We only have Charlie's relatives' claims that he told them Ann practiced witchcraft anyway.

* I've always believed that Perman Gilbert was in fact having an affair and was caught in the act by the woman's husband and was killed before he could get his clothes on. His wife's theory that his killer left him nude to hinder identification or humiliate the family sounds like a wife in denial. But I've also suspected that if one were to dig into their marriage, we'd discover a history of infidelity on Perman's part.

* Most of us agree that Tony Lombardi committed suicide, but I always got the feeling that he may have had documented mental health issues a la Keith Warren's nervous breakdown which was never mentioned and only came to light a few years ago. I can't make up mind on way or the other about whether Keith was murdered or not.

To all the people who responded – do you have anything specific in mind about the segment you listed that you think was left out?

This might not exactly answer your question, but I would loved to have heard from the Pittsburgh and Baldwin police departments for their side of the Michael Rosenblum case. I have always suapected some kind of coverup in his disappearance.

None of the 3 suspects in the segment had a reason to interrupt Eric and his date that night. Especially if they intended to kill him.

There's something more to the case.

Jeffrey Digman.

The more I've considered it over the years, the more I think the reason he was reportedly so perfectionistic and "serious" is because he suffered severe anxiety and depression (and maybe even an alcohol abuse problem) that ultimately led to a suicide.

I agree with this. It's ironic (because he supervised the drug testing program) that he may have had a alcohol or substance abuse problem. After reading your post, I also wonder if he may have been gay. I don't say that flippantly (as some people have accused everyone of being gay in the past) but the more I've watched his story, the more I sensed he was trying to be too perfect also. Whether he was trying to live up to his parents ideals, he was gay and didn't want people to know, he had a drug or alcohol problem, or he was going through depression/anxiety it seemed like maybe he was trying to hide some personal "flaw" (in his mind) or he just wasn't happy like he thought he would be. But yeah, Meg, I think you might be on to something here. If it was substance related, I would think it would be easier for him to hide it since he ran the drug testing program. I don't know what kind of controls they had it place, but at a minimum, I suspect he would at least know when tests were taking place so he could make sure to be clean if he needed a random test.

The fact that his journal and/or records are missing is very suspicious... but not necessarily sinister. It may very well have had the personal reflections of Jeffrey who detailed his struggles with whatever. He may have wanted to leave a clean record after he died. I can see him there alone, struggling with something in his mind, getting mad and ripping the door off his desk to get at his records so he could destroy them, then he drank himself into a stupor to build up the nerve to kill himself. It would cover all of the details in this case, with the lone exception being the angle of the bullet which I do not think is accurate. I think that part is a red herring.

Speaking of Jeffrey Digman and more to the story, I've said this before and I'll say it again -- I am very bothered by the fact Jeffrey's roommate came home, saw Jeffrey's car there and lights on, but needed the neighbor to go with him to check things out. Even in the reenactment, the neighbor is like "WTF?" I don't think an officer in the Marine Corps would be scared to go in his own house just because his roommate is home when he was supposed to be gone. It wasn't like a dark house had the front door hanging wide open at 3am. I think the roommate either KNEW or suspected what he was going to find and wanted a witness. I'm not even saying he did it -- but maybe he knew or suspected Jeffrey was suicidal and didn't want to see it himself and/or wanted a witness so he couldn't be accused of the crime. This part really bothered me and it was kind of glossed over by UM. There has to be more to that part of the story at a minimum.

In any case, I feel bad for Jeffrey and his family. He was a person and a member of the U.S. military and he may have been suffering from something very personal. I have to wonder if this happened today, maybe he could have gotten the help he may have needed since these things have so much less of a stigma. I just hope he is at peace now. I pray for peace and understanding for his family.

I'm going to add one: Tim McClure. (Yes, yes... I know... but hang on.)

I've waffled on this case more than IHOP. From 100% guilty, to probably guilty, to "maybe not guilty?" to "he knows more than he is saying."

As I look at this case now, there is some aspect of this that we are missing. I don't think Tim just straight up planned to murder his mom; nor do I think she just stopped at a casino, got into the passenger seat, and someone just randomly shot her to death.

The "something more" here is what many of us have been asking for years: what is up with Tim's (ex)wife? Why was she not interviewed? What is her version of things? Why did it say she was going to testify against him and then backed out?

It could be as simple as his ex-wife had an axe to grind against him after they broke up and she thought she would stir up the crap pot by going to the police and fingering him in the murder of his mother. But that is an awfully big gamble and she would have to be awfully mad.

I think there is something here we are missing, whether it is his ex-wife, the relationship with his mother, or something his mother was up to that was never admitted (maybe meeting someone on the way home?). I think there is some piece to this story that would fill the hole and explain why Terry was killed and why Tim was so guilty looking/flustered after the fact. He may very well not have killed her, but his behavior suggests he knew a lot more than what he told the police.

I agree with this. I think the natural reaction would be "oh, my roommate must've missed his flight" not "I'm scared to go in the house alone!" This frightened reaction definitely makes me feel there's more to the story, more background that we don't know.

This whole case is messed up. Jeff's father dwells too much on Jeff being left-handed (I think he was shot on the right side). I know of at least three people who are right-handed that shoot left handed (and I'm sure the opposite is true of left-handers who shoot right-handed). Furthermore, it was a handgun so the dominant hand makes very little difference.

Jeff's father also seems convinced that any drug users would be automatically discharged. I'm not certain that would be the case, even in 1988 (1989 was when Jeff was found, during Super Bowl 23).

I think Jeff's roommate suspected he was suicidal. He asked the neighbor to come over to cover himself (so he would have a stronger alibi). The roommate was in no way involved and didn't want to draw any undue suspicion upon himself by being alone when he found Jeff in the house dead (if he suspected Jeff was inside).

My heart ached (still does) for his parents when I first saw this segment on TV (I was in 4th or 5th grade).
