    The Bosque County Slaying of Helen Kilgore

    The Bosque County Slaying of Helen Kilgore

    Before the 1985 murder of 4th grade teacher Mickey Bryan in Clifton, there were several other murders, including the April 1984 murder of 13-year-old Helen Kilgore, whose body was found in Bosque County. After she was identified, at least for a while, authorities were theorizing the killing was an occult ritual or sacrifice to Satan because of a tattoo Helen had. It’s unclear how much time and evidence the ridiculous theory cost detectives, or if their suspects were worthy of investigation. Because of the Satanic Panic angle, unfortunately, the case received little attention in the media.

    If you have information about the murder of Helen Marie Kilgore, please call Texas Crime Stoppers 1-800-252-8477. You may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000 in return.

    The Murder of Mickey Bryan Part 1: Nightmare Scenario

    The Murder of Mickey Bryan Part 1: Nightmare Scenario

    In October 1985, the seemingly idyllic life of small-town educators Mickey and Joe Bryan came crashing down when she was shot and killed in their home. Joe, who was out of town for a work conference, appeared devastated and though they could find no signs the Bryan home had been forcibly entered, the Clifton, Texas Police first theorized the crime was a burglary gone wrong. But when Mickey’s brother come to town and discovers a shocking piece of evidence alongside his ex-FBI Private Investigator, a new motive arises. Or, perhaps more accurately, a new motive is created. Was Joe responsible for Mickey’s slaying? The lead investigator, a Texas Ranger, was hellbent on proving that was the case.

    The Assassination of Alton Peek

    The Assassination of Alton Peek

    34-year-old Alton Peek, Red River County Precinct 4 Commissioner, had everything going for him. He’d been working his way into local politics since high school and was moving up. He had the admiration and respect of the community, particularly in his hometown, Boxelder, Texas. Alton had a beautiful family, a wife and two young boys. So, when he was shot to death while feeding his cattle in August of 1996, a motive, perhaps, perplexed the Red River County Sheriff’s Office the most. Alton Peek wasn’t robbed, he had no financial problems, his political position wasn’t one most folks would kill for. Rumors swirled for years as the case became steeped in controversy, just as they had concerning a case that happened the year before Alton Douglas Peek’s murder: the disappearance of Jennifer Joyce Bench. But as it grew cold and left the local newspaper headlines, they settled. 12 years later, an arrest – shocking to some and no surprise to others – brought everything back to the forefront. However, nothing stuck.

    If you have any information about the 1996 murder of Alton Peek or the 1995 disappearance of Jennifer Bench please contact the Red River County Sheriff’s Office at (903) 427-3838.

    The Murder of Laura Danka: The “Good Samaritan”

    The Murder of Laura Danka: The “Good Samaritan”

    26-year-old Luara Pippin Danka had everything going for her in 1980 – a solid job, a nice little bungalow not far from Corpus Christi Bay, and most importantly, her two children. She’d come to Texas several years before with her husband, but they’d since divorced and were splitting up there time with the kids cooperatively and amicably, by all indications. But in April of that year, on a day seemingly like any other save the fact that it was Easter Sunday, Laura disappeared. Her body was found three days later. She’d been brutally murdered and dumped just outside Corpus Christi city limits. The Nueces County Sheriff’s Office found few clues and even fewer folks with a motive to kill Laura.

    If you have any information about the murder of Laura Pippin Danka, please call the Nueces County Sheriff’s Office at 361-887-2222 or Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477.

    Bridgette Gearen Part 2: The Men in the Dark Car

    Bridgette Gearen Part 2: The Men in the Dark Car

    Soon after the murder of 28-year-old Bridgette Gearen at Crystal Beach, Texas, Galveston County Sheriff’s Office investigators came upon a lead that would be the impetus and direction of their investigation. A dark colored SUV was reported as the vehicle driven by Bridgette’s abductor(s). Throughout the past one and a half decades, Lt. Tommy Hansen, who has continued to work the case almost 15 years past retirement, has found the right avenue to investigate and identified strong suspects, but has not been able to collect the evidence needed to satisfy the Galveston County District Attorney. Part 2 of 2.

    If you have any information about the 2007 murder of Bridgette Lynn Gearen, please contact the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office at (409)766-2300 or (866)248-8477.

    Bridgette Gearen Part 1: Killing on Crystal Beach

    Bridgette Gearen Part 1: Killing on Crystal Beach

    In July of 2007, 28-year-old Bridgette Gearen took her little girl to Crystal Beach, located on the Bolivar Peninsula on the Texas coast. A few couples from the law firm where she worked had rented a beach house for the weekend, and as a hard-working mother, Bridgette was looking forward to the down time. At about the weekend’s halfway point, the young mother left the house alone to wait outside for some of the others with whom she was going to take a midnight drive on the beach. When the others came down, however, Bridgette Gearen was nowhere to be found. The following day, she was found viciously murdered near the water’s edge. With few clues found at the scene, Galveston County Sheriff’s Office investigators scrambled to come up with leads to follow.

    If you have any information about the 2007 murder of Bridgette Lynn Gearen, please contact the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office at (409)766-2300 or (866)248-8477.
