    38. The Story of Michele 'Missy' Avila

    38. The Story of Michele 'Missy' Avila

    In October 1985, 17-year-old Michele Avila disappeared after leaving her home to hang out with three of her good friends. Three days after she was last seen, Michele was found in an area of Angeles National Forest known as Colby Canyon. Despite several suspects making it onto the police department's radar, it would be three years before an unexpected confession would bring Missy's true killers to justice.

    But even as recently as a few years ago, Missy's family has been fighting for justice for Missy in the aftermath of this horrific tragedy.

    35. The Disappearance of Fawn Marie Mountain

    35. The Disappearance of Fawn Marie Mountain

    Fawn Marie Mountain was 25 years old when she vanished from the home she shared with her longtime girlfriend in Claysburg, Pennsylvania. During the entirety of their relationship, Fawn suffered extensive emotional and physical abuse from her girlfriend.

    In late November 2012, Fawn disappeared without a trace. At the time, Fawn had gone no-contact with her family, so it would be three years before her family even knew that she was a missing person.

    No trace of Fawn Marie Mountain has ever been found. If you have any information, please contact the Pennsylvania State Police at (814) 696-6100 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-472-8477.

    34. Where is Cheyann Klus?

    34. Where is Cheyann Klus?

    On November 27th, 2017, 22-year-old Cheyann Klus left her home in Downers Grove, Illinois, taking an uber to visit her reported boyfriend's house for a party. Two days later, just after sunrise, she began sending a string of text messages to a friend, asking to be picked up. When her boyfriend awoke from an 18 hour slumber, Cheyann was gone.

    Twelve days later, on December 11th, 2017, a call came in to 911 dispatchers... from Cheyann's phone. But on the other end of the call was nothing but silence before the caller hung up. To this day, it's unknown whether Cheyann made that call herself... or someone else dialed 911 from her phone. Investigators traced the call to Mallard Lake Forest Preserve, 20 miles away from where Cheyann was last seen. At least two large scale searches have been conducted at the preserve, but no evidence has ever been found, including Cheyann's phone.

    Cheyann's official date of last contact is listed as December 1st, 2017, when a friend was reported to have spoken with her. But she has not been seen or heard from since. Her previously active social media accounts have been completely silent since she disappeared.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Cheyann Klus in early December 2017, please call the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office at (630) 407-2400 or (630) 407-2323.

    32. MMIW: Olivia Lone Bear

    32. MMIW: Olivia Lone Bear

    Olivia Lone Bear was a 32 year old mother of five, and a member of the Three Affiliated Tribes - the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation. In October 2017, Olivia disappeared from the Fort Berthold Reservation where she lived, leaving behind personal belongings such as her wallet and cellphone. The truck that Olivia had been borrowing from a friend that day also vanished.

    The search for Olivia lasted nearly ten months. With little to no aid or resources from tribal, state, or federal authorities, Olivia's family was essentially left to search for her on their own.

    Olivia Lone Bear's death is highly suspicious. There is a reward in place for information leading to those responsible for her disappearance and death. Those with any information are asked to call 1-800-225-5324.

    Olivia Lone Bear is one of far too many Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women across the United States and Canada.

I found you on TikTok and love your podcast

One of the best I’ve heard

I found this podcast through another podcast I was listening to. I fell in love with it from the first episode. I have binged all the episodes in 3 days time. The way she tells a story is amazing. The shortest story was only 9 minutes long but it was so detailed it felt like it was much longer. I have listened to some of the same cases covered by other podcasts and I learned something new with the crime and crime again episodes. It’s as if the other podcasts left out a whole part what happened to the victims. I definitely recommend Crime and Crime Again to any true crime fan!
