    The Murder of Faith Hedgepeth (Part II)

    The Murder of Faith Hedgepeth (Part II)

    Faith Hedgepeth was born on  September 26th 1992 in Warren County North Carolina. She was part of the Haliwa Saponi Native American tribe and her parents Roland and Connie Hegepeth whose parents divorced only a few months after she was born. Her father Roland moved to Hickory North Carolina, a four hour drive away, and Faith remained with her mother and sister Roland who was eighteen years older than Faith and who felt as if she was a second mother to her baby sister. In high school Faith was very active, actively participating in many clubs and organizations as well as cheerleading, and she was also an honor student which earned her the Gates Millenium Scholarship, a program meant to promote academic excellence and provide the opportunity for outstanding minority students with significant financial need to reach their highest potential. Faith was accepted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and she and her family had high hopes for her future. Faith knew she wanted to help people, especially children, by becoming a pediatrician or a teacher, and once she completed college she would become the first member of her family to hold a college degree. Faith had her whole life in front of her, and with her intelligence, excellent people skills and big heart, she would make a positive impact on the world. But on September 6th 2012, Faith’s bright light was extinguished. She was found beaten to death in the off campus apartment she shared with her friend, Karina Rosario. Faith was naked from the waist down, her shirt had been pulled over her head, and next to her a hastily scrawled note on a fast food bag was found. The note said quote, “I’m not stupid bitch. Jealous”. Since that day, Chapel Hill police have been tirelessly trying to find the person or persons who brutally murdered Faith Hedgepeth, who was just weeks away from her twentieth birthday. To her family Faith  symbolized love and hope, to her friends she was a constant source of positive energy and fun, and the question still lingers today. Who killed Faith Hedgepeth, and why?

    The Disappearance of Michaela Garecht (Part II)

    The Disappearance of Michaela Garecht (Part II)

    On November 19th 1988 two nine year old girls happily rode their scooters to the Rainbow Market on Mission Blvd in Hayward California. It was a beautiful fall morning, like many others in the Bay area, it was the weekend before Thanksgiving and the two friends were excited to be spending time together, and riding away on their own for the first time without a parent in tow. The market wasn’t far, just two blocks away from their homes, and they were feeling all grown up when they coasted into the parking lot and left their scooters outside the front door before going in and purchasing two Mountain Dew’s, two sticks of beef jerky, and two cherry flavored taffys. The two girls were so preoccupied chatting with each other as they left the market, they began to walk home, completely forgetting that they had ridden their scooters there. They hadn’t gotten far before they remembered, and ran back laughing, only to find that one of the scooters was missing. These two little girls were Michaela Garecht and her best friend, Trina Rodriguez, and within moments of finding one of the scooters was gone, nine year old Michaela would be snatched away from her friend, her parents, her happy and safe life, and she would never be seen again.

    The Murder of JonBenét Ramsey (Part IV)

    The Murder of JonBenét Ramsey (Part IV)

    It was December 26th, 1996 in Boulder Colorado. Boulder had seen a great deal of snow fall the previous week, but by the morning of the 26th, only a trace of it remained, just a small dusting that would most likely disappear as the sun rose. In an upper class Boulder neighborhood, the occupants of stately, million dollar homes were still slumbering peacefully, getting in their last moments of sleep before the day after Christmas chaos began, the cleaning up and getting back into the everyday routine.  But inside 749 15th St, the home of the Ramsey family, it was a much different scene. At 5:52 AM, 911 operator Kim Archueletta received a phone call from a frantic mother claiming she had woken up to a ransom note, and her six year old daughter missing from her bed.

    But JonBenét Ramsey had not been taken, she was not missing from her home, she had been there the whole time, and the events that would follow would lead to one of the most tragic mysteries the true crime world has ever known, a case that has often been referred to as the largest unsolved crime in America.

    The fourth and final part of our deep dive looks at the remaining suspects, and we discuss our own theories on what happened to JonBenét...

Amazing

I’ve been a Stephanie fan for awhile now, and I love her in depth story telling and attention to details and possibilities. In her YouTube videos, Stephanie does a great job of giving backstory to who the victim was before the crime, which is something I was there was more of in this podcast. Derrick offers a great new perspective from the side of law enforcement and gives us a better idea of the technicalities and procedures work that goes into solving a crime. However, I have noticed he often says “these are just our opinions” and similar statements several times before saying what he’s talking about. He has started doing it less, but that would be the number one thing I would appreciate less of. Maybe just a disclaimer at the beginning of the podcast would be better? Either way, I love the podcast and look forward to it every Friday 😎

Faith

I love your podcast, the two of you are great together. I do have one thing to say. You mentioned that a 70 yr old woman would not be awake watching TV at the time she heard thumping. As a 69 yr old woman I can tell you, older people do stay up late. I may go to bed early but I stay up very late, even early morning watching TV. I sleep less and lighter and at 70, don’t underestimate how sharp she is. Love you guys💞
