The 1991 Yogurt Shop Murders

yogurtshopvictims

If there is one thing I despise, it’s a horrific murder that never gets solved, especially one involving children. Such is the case of the 1991 Austin Yogurt Shop murders. Four teenage girls raped and murdered, and their killers walk free to this day. I actually remember this happening, although I lived several states away. […]

Going Back to the Old Way

idontgiveashit

I’ve decided to go back to writing the way I used to in this blog. Meaning, I will write about the case, then give my opinion (not all the time) at the end of the post, and being brutally honest when needed. It’s ridiculous to write two separate posts – one on the case, and […]

Update on Blog

update

I just wanted to let you know that I am back to writing this week and through the upcoming weekend. I said that last week but then I got sick for several days, so I decided to wait on the writing. I also have not started the book I am going to review. I plan on […]

On August 26, 1982, three-year-old Rachael Runyan of Sunset, Utah was playing at her elementary school’s playground with her two older brothers when a man approached her offering bubble gum and ice cream. After earning Rachael’s trust, the man grabbed her, threw her into his car, and sped away. Rachael’s brothers watched in horror as their sister was […]

TCD’s Thoughts: Reny Jose

To read about this case, please click here. As I stated at the beginning of the post I did on Reny’s case, the case itself is eerily similar to Brittanee Drexel’s case. They’re not connected, but it’s weird how similar they are. Like Brittanee, Reny was from New York and disappeared while on spring break. Reny was […]

I just came across this case and it reminds me of Brittanee Drexel’s case in many ways. Rice University student, Reny Jose, 21, was on spring break in Panama City, FL in March 2014. He was one of about 20 students who rented a beach house March 1st.  He was last seen at 7pm on March […]

Angela’s disappearance is similar to the abduction of Elaine Nix in Georgia in 1999. Like Elaine, 20-year-old Angela Marie Hammond was speaking to her boyfriend, Rob, at a payphone at approximately 11:15 p.m. on April 4, 1991 in Clinton, MO. The payphone she was using was in the parking lot of the Food Barn Store, […]
