    The WVU Coed Murders // 275

    In January of 1970, two freshman students at West Virginia University disappeared while hitchhiking after seeing a movie. While police originally thought the girls may have run away, suspicious letters began to arrive that suggested otherwise. After their beheaded bodies were found, police began a relentless search to find their ruthless killer. But so far, all they’ve gotten is a false confession. These are the unsolved murders of Karen Ferrell and Mared Malarik.

    Lacy Miller // 273

    Lacy Miller // 273

    In January of 2003, a 20-year-old college student in Colorado didn’t return home after a night out with friends. One week later, her body was found in a canyon outside of the city, clearly having been abducted and murdered. As police investigated the case, they uncovered that her killer had posed as a police officer, and pulled her over for a routine traffic stop before she disappeared, and that Lacy’s phony traffic stop wasn’t the first time it had occurred. This is the murder of Lacy Miller.
