    +228 // Bound, Beaten, and Burned

    Two Toledo, OH teens were asked to leave a birthday party at the Maumee Bay Lodge and Convention Center after one of them purportedly flashed a gun on December 3rd, 2022. After getting into a silver SUV and riding off into the night, the boys were never seen alive again. For ten agonizing days, their whereabouts remained unknown until an unexpected tip led authorities to the site of a vacant house fire. Beneath the twisted and charred rubble, the FBI Evidence Recovery team would ultimately find the truth…

    Jackson "Trash"

    On November 8, 2016, 26-year-old Brittany Southwell was holding her 7-month-old son in her arms, while inside her basement bedroom with her fiancé Tyler, in Jackson, MI. It was like any other Tuesday inside the home located in the 400 block on Jefferson St…until Tyler’s father noticed a suspicious SUV pull into the driveway from his upstairs window. Moments later, a knock came at the door, before several loud bangs turned to screams, and eventually… gunfire. After an intruder had kicked in the front door of the residence and proceeded to open fire, one person would be left barely clinging to life as they bled out on the carpet. Investigators eventually tracked down the suspect, and later recovered two livestream videos - recordings that the shooter uploaded to Facebook himself, capturing the entire horrific incident in real time, for all of his followers to see…

    On June 21st, 2022, Michael Cole Rathel was eagerly awaiting his friend and co-worker 21-year-old Xichen Yang’s arrival to work at a pool cleaning company they were both employed at in Orlando, Florida.  Xichen, a pool technician, never turned up and Michael became frustrated with his absence.  Michael proceeded to call and give his tardy friend an earful, but noticed Xichen sounded distraught on the other end of the line.  When asked if everything was okay, Xichen responded that his wife, 21-year-old Nhu Quynh Pham, burned his passport.  He then told Michael that because of this, he became enraged and did “unspeakable things” to her...

    In the early morning hours of June 22nd, 2013, 22-year-old Matthew Cordle got into his truck after a long night out on the town drinking with friends in Columbus, OH. During the drive home, Matthew ended up careening down the wrong side of the interstate, eventually slamming head on into 61-year-old Vincent Canzani, killing him instantly. What at first seemed like an unduly delayed investigation, soon made national headlines, after Matthew posted a video to YouTube where he publicly confessed to the crime…

    You Live, You Die

    Anchorage, AK ranks #1 when it comes to areas with the highest rate of Indigenous women who go missing each calendar year in the U.S. Unfortunately 2019 proved to be no different - when Anchorage Police received an SD card from a homeless woman who claimed she found it on the side of the road. When authorities viewed the contents of the card labeled, "Homicide at Midtown Marriott,” they were met with exactly that. Early into an investigation filled with twists and bizarre turns, law enforcement recognized the killer’s accent, heard on the homemade snuff film…but after sitting down with 48-year-old South African native Brian Steven Smith, they quickly realized that they might just have a serial killer on their hands…
