    Who Killed Holly? The Murder of Holly Palmer Part 2

    Who Killed Holly? The Murder of Holly Palmer Part 2

    After Holly Palmer’s brutal beating death on November 27th, 1988, Granbury Police and Hood County Sheriff’s Department Officers began looking anywhere and everywhere for someone who might have wanted to kill the young woman. They felt it was someone who knew Holly well, someone she trusted not to hurt her, but authorities were perplexed. It seemed no one had anything against her. Except, perhaps, one individual whose name kept popping up.

    Act of Rage: The Murder of Holly Palmer Part 1

    Act of Rage: The Murder of Holly Palmer Part 1

    Holly Palmer was a well-liked and much-admired resident of Granbury, Texas. At 23 years old, she had her entire life ahead of her and she was well on her way to living it. She was working while also pursuing creative interests that might prove in the future to be lucrative. Holly had a loving family and a lot of support, particularly from her close sisters, mother, and stepfather. Just after Thanksgiving of 1988, on November 27th, her life was taken, ripped away in an act of rage that shook Granbury to its core; Holly was found brutally beaten to death in the Greyhound bus station she managed there.

    Death in the Panhandle: The Murder of Elsa Romo-Nickell

    Death in the Panhandle: The Murder of Elsa Romo-Nickell

    In July of 1969 in the small town of Panhandle, Texas, Elsa Romo-Nickell was found murdered on her bed as the morning alarm that was meant to wake her buzzed loudly. Leads were scarce as the crime scene was contaminated but a couple months later in nearby Skellytown, another murder which bore similarities took place. Though that lead and the few others police had seemed promising at first, including new information that investigators uncovered as late as 2017, Elsa’s murder is still unsolved.

    The Tragic Disappearance & Murder of Hailey Dunn

    The Tragic Disappearance & Murder of Hailey Dunn

    On December 27th, 2010, thirteen-year-old Hailey Darlene Dunn vanished. The media frenzy that ensued after her disappearance often seemed as if the girl herself had been forgotten. Billie Jean Dunn, Hailey’s mother, along with her live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, were immediately under the scrutinization of police and the press. Though a few solid reasons to suspect Adkins’ involvement in Hailey’s disappearance certainly existed, perhaps law enforcement’s efforts went a little too far when they hit Billie Jean, too...but, perhaps not. Almost three years after she disappeared, Hailey’s remains were found in a rural part of the county adjoining hers. No one has ever been brought to justice for her murder, and though they might have been on the right track, the media’s sensationalism was certainly exploitative.

    Bloody Presents: The Disappearance of Chance & Dub and the Killing of Trish

    Bloody Presents: The Disappearance of Chance & Dub and the Killing of Trish

    Just after Christmas in 1993, the body of 38-year-old Latricia “Trish” White was found by her worried father who’d come to check on her. She’d been shot to death in her own bed. Her boyfriend, Lee “Dub” Wackerhagen, and his son, Chance Wackerhagen, were nowhere to be found. Police all but immediately came to the conclusion that Dub killed Trish in a rage and fled with Chance. For well over two decades, in fact, Dub was the only suspect. He and Chance were never seen again and when a Texas Ranger began re-investigating the case, he found that the original investigators might have suffered from tunnel vision in their efforts to solve the crimes.

    Secret Hope: The Disappearance of Sharon “Sarah” McCully

    Secret Hope: The Disappearance of Sharon “Sarah” McCully

    When she dropped her husband back off at work after picking him up for lunch on Monday, December 10th, 1984, Sharon “Sarah” McCully had an errand to run. That evening, when her husband John returned home, Sarah was nowhere to be found. Two days later, her car was found. Exactly one week later, at practically the same time of day, another woman disappeared and was later found brutally murdered in her vehicle. She’d also been bound and raped. The similarities between the two cases were striking but there was one major difference: Sarah has never been seen again, alive or dead.
