    The Murder of Maureen McConaha

    The Murder of Maureen McConaha

    In the early morning of Saturday, October 4th, 1997, a resident of east Las Vegas was woken up at 6:30 am by his dog barking incessantly. 

    He walked into his backyard,  where he could see the narrow strip of desert between the highway and his yard just beyond his fence. Under some bushes, he saw the body of a young woman. 

    The police were stumped that no one had reported a missing teenager, especially because she was wearing designer jeans and had a fresh manicure. She remained a Jane Doe for 3 days until her parents had to do the unimaginable - identify the body of their daughter, Maureen.

    When Leaving Isn't Enough

    When Leaving Isn't Enough

    Marillorky Tamayo-Cruz moved to the Las Vegas area in 2018, for a reason it feels like we’ve cited a lot in recent cases we’ve covered: to find a better life for herself and her children.

    She was, as it so often happens though, married to an abusive man with a pattern of domestic violence, and just a couple of hours after she was granted a divorce and full custody of her children, the unthinkable happened.

    When Leaving Isn't Enough - Swing Shift (Bonus)

    Marillorky, Ashley, and Dennis' stories all serve as cautionary tales for the dangers in domestic violence relationships when someone finally leaves, but also when there is a custody dispute. In the Swing Shift episode, we talk about that a lot and offer some theories on these two cases.

    Thanks so much for being a subscriber! It's people like you who make this show possible every week.

    The Disappearance of Steven Koecher

    The Disappearance of Steven Koecher

    Around noon on Sunday, December 13, 2009, 30-year-old Steven Koecher parked his Chevy Cavalier on the cul du sac of Savannah Springs Avenue in the Sun City Anthem retirement community of Henderson, Nevada. Grainy black and white camera footage showed an adult figure, presumably Steven, walking down the sidewalk, alone, with an unknown item tucked under his left arm.

    Steven walked out of that security camera’s view and was never seen again, leaving only questions and half-baked theories about what happened to him. He never returned to his car, and he never made it home for Christmas. For the last 15 years, his loved ones have been trying desperately to find out what might have happened to him

    A Twisted Nightmare - Part 4 - The Trial

    A Twisted Nightmare - Part 4 - The Trial

    In January 2009, it seemed like the murder case against Thomas Randolph would be moving forward to bring him to justice for the murders of Mike Miller and his wife Sharon Randolph. Finally, he would face some accountability for the decades of pain he had caused.

    Throughout his life, Thomas Randolph always seemed to be able to escape serious consequences for his actions, even being acquitted of the murder of his second wife, and serving a light sentence for conspiracy to commit murder for hiring a hitman to murder the prosecution’s star witness in that case.

    In part 4 we’ll talk about his trial, and explain why it took over 15 years for justice to be served.

Excited

Being from Vegas, I was always invested in what was going around. I love my hometown and always will, but definitely a dark side to it. Thank you for covering these cases! I never really hear of many crimes in Vegas in other podcasts so this one is definitely a keeper for me!

Coffee and Cases Podcast ,

Lesser-known cases and important coverage

This is such a good podcast! Soothing voices, detailed information, and important information (e.g. stalker awareness)/ lesser-known cases— what more could you ask for?!?! Much love from your fellow podcasters at Coffee and Cases

PodcastJunkie25 ,

Intro.

I don’t get the intro. “I’m the only John in the room.”? Is he alluding to all the “Johns” in Vegas? Regardless, it is tasteless and crass. How about they omit the entire “John” bit?
