    Episode 144 - Murder At The St. Regis - The Death of Sheila Mack

    On August 12th, 2014 at a luxurious resort in Bali, Heather Mack and her boyfriend Tommy Shaefer loaded a suitcase into the back of a waiting taxi.

    They told the driver they’d be back shortly. They just needed to finish checking out. But after waiting two whole hours, they never returned.

    When Hotel security popped the trunk of the cab to remove the suitcase, they noticed something smeared on the abandoned luggage...it appeared to be blood.

    Episode 143 - The Disappearance of Jacob Millison

    Episode 143 - The Disappearance of Jacob Millison

    If you’ve ever watched shows like Yellowstone - you know that sometimes out west on a Ranch, there are secrets: secrets never supposed to leave the corral.

    This was something a ranch hand would discover firsthand, in Gunnison, Colorado in 2017, after witnessing two other ranchers, uncover something horrific. While digging in the horse corral with a backhoe…they unearthed what appeared to be rib bones…human rib bones - poking out from a dirty white sheet of plastic.

    It was at that moment the ranch hand was told: “You know you can’t ever leave now, right?”

    Episode 142 - 7 Minutes

    Monday, April 23rd, 2018 was a surprisingly warm day in Toronto, Ontario, causing residents to be out in droves, ditching their winter coats, eager to enjoy the sunshine.

    Among those taking advantage of the warmer weather, was 68 year old Catherine Riddell, headed to the library off of Yonge Street, when a van suddenly struck her from behind.

    The vehicle had hit Catherine with such force, it sent her body flying in the air, before crashing through a transit shelter.

    The strange thing was, Catherine hadn’t been hit crossing the street. She’d been walking on the sidewalk.

    Episode 140 - Abduction At Big Sky

    Episode 140 - Abduction At Big Sky

    In the early 1980s, many of the staff at Lone Mountain Ranch in Big Sky Montana were like a close-knit family, both working and living together on the property. Not only did the Lone Mountain actually function as a working cattle ranch, it also offered luxury guest accommodations for tourists looking to get a taste of the Old West.

    On a hot July day in 1984, one of the staff members had decided to go out for a run along a well-used trail through the scenic beauty of the surrounding area and never returned.
