    On May 16th, 2003, an unknown gunman walked into the Blue Ridge Savings Bank in Greer, South Carolina. After producing a 40 caliber glock handgun, he robbed the bank and then gathered one employee, Sylvia Holtzclaw and two customers, Eb and Maggie Barnes and led them into a back room. There, the gunman opened fire, killing all three.

    For the past seventeen years, Sylvia's son David has fought to keep this case in the public eye in hopes that the killer would be found. Despite three prominent suspects over the years, the truth of what happened that day remains concealed and the killer remains unknown.

    100 - The Death of Kurt Cobain

    100 - The Death of Kurt Cobain

    **Use Promo Code: TRACE2020 to save 10% on a pass to CrimeCon! Visit CrimeCon.com for tickets.

    Kurt Cobain died on April 5th, 1994. His body was found in the greenhouse above his garage on the morning of April 8th. The Seattle Police Department and King County Medical Examiner's Office ruled Kurt's death a suicide inside of 24 hours. Before evidence was processed, before toxicology came in.. before they even investigated.

    For twenty-six years there has been a harsh debate: Did Kurt Cobain commit suicide or was it murder? In this episode, we bypass that question and instead ask something that we might actually be able to get an answer to... did the Seattle Police Department thoroughly and unbiasedly investigate the death of Kurt Cobain or did they leap to the conclusion of suicide, to which they've stuck to this very day?

    We will take a thorough look at the evidence, hear from experts and hear from Kurt himself in our search for the answer.

    Ten months after the horrifying tragedy at Columbine High School, on February 13th, 2000, fifteen year old Nick Kunselman and his girlfriend, sixteen year old Stephanie Hart-Grizzell were shot to death inside a Subway restaurant just blocks from the school.

    The murders made little sense to a town already reeling from the school shooting. Nearly twenty years have passed and while the Columbine Shooting continues to gain publicity, the double homicide of two teenagers has received very little coverage.

    098 - The Be-Lo Shooting Massacre

    On June 6th, 1993, a man appeared inside of a Be-Lo grocery store in Windsor, NC after closing hours. Brandishing a handgun, the man ordered the store manager and a cashier to empty the days earnings into a plastic bag in an apparent robbery.

    After gathering up the money, the armed suspect then corralled the two employees, plus the four person floor cleaning crew and bound them. After being tied up, the suspect stacked the employees into three piles of two people a piece and then he opened fire.

    After murdering three and severely wounding two others, the killer walked out into the quiet night never to be seen again. Some twenty-six years later the killer's identity remains unknown and investigators continue to work the case.

    097 - The Abduction of Jessica Gutierrez

    097 - The Abduction of Jessica Gutierrez

    **This week's episode is Sponsored by Solid Gold. Visit SolidGoldPet.com/Trace for 30% off your first order.

    On June 5th, 1986, four year old Jessica Gutierrez climbed into bed with her six year old sister, Becky, to go to sleep. The next morning, Jessica was gone and when her mother, Debra, asked what happened, Becky explained that during the night a man wearing a “magic hat” took her away.

    Debra filed a missing person’s report, but unfortunately, her nightmare had only just begun. Despite a fingerprint found at the scene, an alleged confession and suspicions across the board, the man many believe responsible for the crime has never been charged.

    A bitter dispute erupted between Debra, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Office and the South Carolina Solicitor. While Debra wanted answers, the Sheriff wanted charges and the solicitor felt they didn’t have enough evidence. Over the next thirty-three years the questions surrounding Jessica’s abduction have only grown while the answers have never been provided.

    096 - The Disappearance of Margaret Ellen Fox

    On June 24th, 1974. fourteen year old Margaret Ellen Fox stepped onto the 8:40am bus to Mount Holly, NJ, some seven miles from her home. She'd recently been hired on as a babysitter and was eager to start her new job. However, Margaret would never return home.

    When Margaret didn't arrive back home, her family began searching and soon discovered that not only did the number to her employer trace to a payphone but the man himself, John Marshall, did not exist. Several days later the Fox family received a call from the alleged abductor, demanding $10,000 and then they never heard from him again.

    For the last forty-five years the mystery of Margaret's disappearance has haunted her family and Burlington, New Jersey. What became of the young woman and what is the true identity of her abductor?
