Israel Keyes has been called "one of the most methodical serial killers of all-time." However, investigators still have no idea how many crimes Keyes committed. In this episode, I detail his movements throughout the country, and speculate on the mindset of a psychopath.
On December 15th, 1967, the Silver Bridge in Point Pleasant, WV collapsed, killing 46 people. However, the story is preceded by months of weird sightings, ominous meetings, and events that some would consider unusual.
"Mr. Cruel" is the name given to the Australian boogeyman, who became well-known for the heinous assaults against children he would commit in the late 1980s and early 1990s. His identity has never been discovered, and he has escaped justice for almost thirty years.
In the early morning hours of May 25th, 2013, Officer Jason Ellis of the Bardstown P.D. was driving home after a shift, and was ambushed by an unknown assailant. His tragic attack was just the beginning of an extremely odd period in what has been called "America's most beautiful small town."
In 1974, Arlis Perry was just a newlywed that had moved from her small-town in Montana to be with her husband in Palo Alto, California. More specifically, living on the Stanford campus. After an argument with her husband, Bruce, Arlis walked to the nearby Stanford Memorial Church, where her body would be found hours later.
On January 26th, 1966, the three Beaumont children - 9-year old Jane, 7-year old Arnna, and 4-year old Grant - disappeared from a beach just miles away from their home in Adelaide. No one has ever seen them or heard from them again, making it one of Australia's most renown missing persons cases.
In September of 1992, teenager Misty Copsey was visiting the local fair in her hometown of Puyallup, WA. After telling her best friend that she'd get a ride home with a older neighbor boy. Local police seemed disinterested in researching her case (considering her a "runaway"), but a local amateur investigator has kept the story alive for decades since... however, it seems like his obsession has damaged the case beyond repair.
In May of 2010, escort Shannan Gilbert ran from a home in Long Island, claiming that her client and driver were trying to kill her. Seven months later, police - in an effort to track down Shannan - stumbled upon the bodies of other prostitutes, finding upwards of ten bodies. They have identified some, but struggled to answer the most difficult question: who killed all of these victims?
At the turn of the past century, the Miyazawa family - who lived in a suburb of Tokyo called Setagaya - seemed to be a pretty typical middle-class family. However, after a quiet New Year's Eve holiday, their bodies were discovered by neighboring relatives... unearthing a tragic question mark that has lingered to this day.
In September of 1961, New Hampshire couple Barney and Betty Hill were returning from a vacation to Niagara Falls. During their drive, they claimed to have muddled memories from an extraterrestrial encounter. Over the next few years, they would undergo hypnosis treatment and reveal their story, which was the first highly-publicized alien abduction story in the American zeitgeist.
From 1979 to 1983, the bodies of five young men were found in the area around Adelaide. All of them showed signs of sexual wounds, and led police to the doorstep of one man: Bevan Spencer von Einem. However, evidence only linked von Einem to one crime, leading the world to believe that he didn't act alone.
Chase Massner was a 26-year old Iraqi War veteran living in Canton, GA. He was married, with two young children, and - like many parents - was struggling to make ends meet. After an argument with his wife, Amanda, Chase went to stay with a friend... and has never been seen again. In this episode, I speak to Nancy Grace, who has brought his case back to life, and speculate where Chase might have gone.
In April of 1990, a woman that went by the name of Tonya Hughes was found on the side of an Oklahoma City highway; the victim of a hit-and-run. However, her unsolved murder would be just the beginning of a decades-long mystery that spanned across the continental United States, and included many more victims - including her son, Michael.
In November of 1993, three teenage girls from a Spanish village named Alcasser disappeared without a trace. For months, spotty eyewitness testimony was all that police had to go off of. But when the girls' bodies were found, evidence found at the scene put police on the path of the men who killed the girls. Or did they?
From February of 1968 to October of 1969, a Scottish serial killer tormented the patrons of the Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow. His three victims: Patricia Docker, Jemima McDonald, and Helen Puttock were all young women with children, and were found in similar circumstances a day or two after their disappearance. Despite a vast amount of information made widely available, Bible John's true identity has remained unknown for nearly half-a-century.
From 1982 to 1985, a group of three bandits terrorized the area of Brussels. These men, usually armed with semi-automatic rifles, set their sights on grocery stores and committed violent robberies.

In March of 2016, Chip Michael Campbell was picked up on the security footage of a Circle K gas station in Milton, Florida. He was carrying two backpacks into the bathroom. When he walked out of that gas station, he was never seen again. I look at his life in the months and years before this odd sighting, and speak to his friend John Claudio and his sister Lesa Kissoon in the hopes of learning more about who Chip was.
