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. References & Resources: to train dogs in Shanda's name.

Beyond The Rainbow Podcast - Alexander Blake VanDalsen's Story: Murder isn't Suicide!
Today we present you with ***BEYOND THE RAINBOW PODCAST*** www.beyondtherainbowpodcast.com 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 fucking 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.

The Yuba County 5
On this episode we delve into the mysterious case of the Yuba County 5. In February of 1978, a group of five men, referred to endearingly as "The Boys" by their families, watched a basketball game at Chico State University and on their travels home, ended up traveling approximately 70 miles in the wrong direction from home. The end up on a rural gravel road in the foothills of the forest. At least, this is where the car they were traveling in ended up. None of the men would be seen alive again, and only 4 of the 5 men would be found. No parts of this case make sense and all we are left with is families left with the loss of a loved one and no real answers as to who, why, how or what... Was is supernatural? Was it foul play? Was it happenstance? There are so many theories out there and no concrete answers or evidence as to what happened to the Yuba County 5 References & Resources: UPDATE ON ALEXIS GABE CASE: Ex-boyfriend of missing California woman Alexis Gabe killed after charging officers attempting to arrest him for her murder (nbcnews.com) Episode References: https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/lifestyle/1978/07/06/5-boys-who-never-come-back/f8b30b11-baeb-4351-89f3-26456a76a4fb/ The Disturbingly Mysterious Disappearance of the Yuba County Boys | The Mystery Box (medium.com) Yuba city five incident — Mysterious Stories Blog — StrangeOutdoors.com Out of Bounds: What Happened to the Yuba County Five? – Drew Beeson Books

The Ohta Mansion Murders
In this episode, Cody & Molly keep it California-centric and discuss the murders of 5 individuals, including 2 children at a beautiful home in the beach town of Soquel. The victims, Dr. Victor Ohta, Virgina Ohta, their 2 sons and Dr. Ohta's Personal Assistant, Dorothy Cadwallader were found when firefighters were alerted to the crime scene after the home had been set on fire. These murders and the hunt for the person or people responsible created an even larger divide in the community and fueled the anti-hippie sentiment that was already prevalent at this time. Given a threatening note found at the crime scene, did we have another Manson family on our hands? Law enforcement was working against the clock to make sure that those responsible were apprehended as quickly as possible and that the community was kept safe.

Werewolves- The OG Serial Killers?
John Douglas, one of the founding fathers of the profiling unit at the FBI posed a thought...What if werewolves and witches were how those from Europe and early America explained away the original serial killers? Instead of coming to terms with the atrocities that your neighbors performed, you instead blamed it on the occult or the supernatural? We take a quarter pike, so very mini history dive into the long history of werewolfery and discuss two historical cases from the late 1500's and early 1600's that will have you give John Douglas statement some extra thought.

The Capitol Hill Massacre Shooting aka The Rave Shooting
On the morning of March 25, 2006, an armed man walks up to a house where he had just been attending a rave after-party. This man opens fire and shoots multiple victims taking 6 lives before turning the gun on himself. The gunman claimed that it was part of a revolution against the rave community. He saw the rave community as a whole as the enemy.... What we learn about these victims is that they were opposite of the enemy. They were loving and welcoming people with so much life and love to give, taken from this earth way too soon.

The Murder of Stephanie Crowe
In January of 1998, after wishing her family members a goodnight, Stephanie Crowe, a 12-year-old girl was murdered before even being able to get ready for bed. However, this isn't the only tragedy that would befall this family. Stephanie's 14-year-old brother was quickly deemed the main suspect in the case. After being separated from his parents, he spends hours in intense interrogation sessions with investigators. The investigators are ultimately able to obtain a confession from Stephanie's brother. However, how credible can such a confession be from a 14-year-old under duress and subject to interrogation tactics used on adults? As this case unfolds, we discuss multiple coerced confessions from teenagers and ultimately a more likely suspect.

Sextortion - The Crimes of Ryan Vallee and Lucas Chansler
Sextortion is another online danger and has only recently been recognized by law as a crime. In 2011, the internet was booming and more people were using social media sites than ever. This increase in online activity opened up many to online predators. Between 2011 and 2016, Ryan Vallee used social media to harass, cyberstalk and obtain nude photos of his victims, teenage girls, through sextortion tactics. However his case is not an isolated incident and this is a prevalent threat online. A 31 year old Florida man named Lucas Chansler was arrested in relation to his online criminal activities . He had nearly 350 victims that spanned over 26 of the states in the US, in Canada and Great Britain. When arrested, he had 80,000 photos and videos in the library of media that he coerced from his victims. Only just about 100 of his victims have been identified, which leaves a lot of room for this investigation to remain open.
