For years, some law enforcement agencies have replaced the faces of traditional playing card decks with images of missing and murdered people and distributed those cards in prisons hoping inmates would come forward with information needed to crack these cold cases wide open.
Now, audiochuck is dealing you in.
Each week, we will be working with investigators and family members to bring you the details of some of the coldest cases from around the country in hopes that someone listening can finally bring these victims the justice they deserve.
Mary Beth "Pixie" Grismore (10 of Spades, Indiana)
In February 1978, a 26-year-old mother of two disappeared from her rural Indiana home the day she was scheduled to move to Iowa with her new husband. Months later, she was found strangled to death in the trunk of her own car in Ohio. For more than forty years, Mary Beth “Pixie” Grismore’s case has haunted law enforcement as they sift through the unanswered questions surrounding her disappearance and murder. Although the case has been ice cold for years, police are hopeful that the tip they need to bring new life to the investigation is right around the corner.
Dorothy Kajpust (4 of Diamonds, Idaho)
On August 21, 2004, 54-year-old Dorothy Kajpust was staying at a friend’s mobile home in eastern Idaho as a temporary living arrangement when, suddenly, in the early morning hours of that Saturday, an unknown individual entered the home and brutally assaulted Dorothy, leaving her for dead. Five days later, Dorothy passed away in the hospital without regaining consciousness. For nearly two decades, Dorothy’s case has remained unsolved, and the mystery surrounding her death is still just as puzzling for detectives today as it was in 2004.
David Comparetto (King of Hearts, Florida)
When a 30-year-old man with disabilities is brutally murdered, stuffed into the trunk of his car, and set on fire, law enforcement in Southwest Florida is left in horror and with few clues to follow. For 29 years the crime has gone unsolved but now could be the season of justice for David Comparetto.
Kétie Memory Jones (5 of Clubs, North Carolina)
In October 2016, a 26-year-old restaurant hostess in Charlotte, North Carolina, was walking home after a night out with friends when she was gunned down on a sidewalk about half a mile from her house. For years, detectives have explored every possible avenue trying to bring her killer to justice, but with no eyewitnesses and very little evidence, the case grows colder with each passing day. Now, law enforcement is providing new details to the public about Kétie Jones’ case in hopes that someone with information will come forward and justice can finally be served.
Bobby Joe Fritz (5 of Spades, Wisconsin)
On May 14, 1983, 5-year-old Bobby Joe Fritz asked his sister to walk him back home after playing a game of kickball with the neighborhood kids in the Wisconsin village of Campbellsport. After walking him toward their house and watching as he made it to the end of their driveway, his sister waved goodbye and returned to kickball — and that was the last confirmed sighting of Bobby Joe. For nearly four decades, police in Wisconsin have been trying to figure out how Bobby Joe seemingly vanished into thin air.
Owachige Osceola (8 of Diamonds, Oklahoma)
Recently divorced and living on her own in a new city, 27-year-old Owachige Osceola’s life was in a season of transition before she was killed in the bedroom of her Norman, Oklahoma apartment in September 2013. While the medical examiner who performed her autopsy concluded her cause and manner of death were “undetermined,” a detective who remains on the case today insists a killer has been allowed to walk free for nearly a decade.
I just wish it was longer. Thanks for a great podcast 🤩
Good but ..
I really like your podcast but I’m pretty sure you got the randy leach case wrong. He didn’t even make it to college.
Stolen idea from another podcast Seems like this host can’t do any work on her own Plagiarism with her other show with the “wait what” “full body chills” cohost
