The Unsolved Murders of Julie Williams & Lollie Winans
Julie Williams and Lollie Winans were well versed in hiking, camping and wilderness trips. On May 19, 1996 they arrived at Shenadoah National Park with a plan to hike and camp along portions of the Appalachian Trail. Their permit intinerary had them scheduled to leave the park on May 27, 1996. Ony May 31st, Park Rangers were alerted by Julie's father, that the women had not yet returned home and upon their initial investigation, Park Rangers found Julie's car remained where they had parked it back on May 22nd. By all accounts, it appeared the women ever made it out of the park. By June 1st, an official search was underway.
This episode was inspired and driven by the research provided in the book Trailed: One Women's Quest To Solve the Shenandoah Murders by Kathryn Miles, where look at just the tip of the ice berg of this case, and all that this amazing book contains.

The Murder of Shanda Sharer
After being lured out of her home by four older teenage girls, Shanda Sharer, only 12 years old, was brutalized for more than 9 hours until her death the following morning on January 11, 1992.
The death of a child never makes sense. The death of a child at the hands of individuals who are all still children as well, between the ages of 15 and 17, makes even less sense.
In her short time on earth, Shanda brought light into this world and had an energy that attracted others to her and she was willing to be a friend to all. She was not allowed to share all that she had to offer in its full capacity because her life was cut short by the acts of four others... three that had never even met her. This case is baffling... because we all ask why? Even to this day... why? And there will never be any solid answers. All we can do is hope for some kind of positive actions by the perpetrators moving forward.

Beyond The Rainbow Podcast - Alexander Blake VanDalsen's Story: Murder isn't Suicide!
Today we present you with ***BEYOND THE RAINBOW PODCAST***
Alex VanDalsen was a 21 year old trans man who died in Lafayette, Indiana. Law enforcement quickly ruled his death a suicide. Yet there was no blood splatter, no bullet casings and the coroner miss marked bullet entrance/exit wounds. A gun was found under Alex, law enforcement declared it was Alex's and the weapon he used to take his life. As far as anyone in Alex's life knew...Alex didn't own a gun. Plus this may not have been the weapon used to kill Alex. No guns shot residue tests were made...nada because no investigation was done. In the episode I mention Tippecanoe Sheriff's were ranked 50% out of 100% in effectiveness, they are now 47% and Lafayette Police who were also ranked 50% out 100% are now ranked 49%...both are failing miserably! Do your f*****g jobs Indiana Sheriffs and city Police!
The Trailside Killer
The Trailside Killer emptied State and National Park trails in the Northern California area in the late 1970s and early 1980s as it was no longer a safe place to be. Male or female, alone or in a group. With a dog or without one. It seemed that no one was safe even in broad daylight. With the help of a spot on profile by founding FBI profiler John Douglas and the gut instinct of a young woman that unfortunately did fall victim to this man, David Carpenter's killing spree was brought to an end and he currently sits as the oldest living inmate on death row in San Quentin.
