BE-LO Grocery Store Massacre
On Sunday, June 6, 1993, an unimaginable tragedy occurred in the small town of Windsor, North Carolina. Six employees of the local Be-Lo grocery store were closing up the place for the day when an unknown man appeared with a gun and ordered them to the butcher room in the back. When the man left the store, three of the six employees were dead, two severely injured and one completely unharmed. Still, despite half of the victims surviving the attack and giving a description of the person responsible, to this day, his identity remains a mystery.

The Bizarre Case of Debbie Wolfe
In December of 1985, a 28-year-old nurse named Debbie Wolfe left her shift at the hospital and headed back to her home—a small isolated cabin in the woods just outside of Fayetteville, North Carolina. The next day, Debbie did not show up for work nor answered her phone, which was highly unusual for her. Soon after, a search for the missing woman was launched. The end result of that search still baffles the public almost 40 years later. For source material, photos and discussion boards visit www.whysocoldpodcast.com

The Murder of Cynthia Gastelle
Skeletal remains of a young woman were discovered off Mountain Road in Haymarket, Prince William County, Virginia, on February 12th, 1982. Due to the advanced level of decomposition, for over 30 years, investigators were unable to tell who this person was or where she came from. Meanwhile, the family members of Cynthia Joan Gastelle hoped that their missing loved one would return home one day—unaware that she had already been found decades earlier.

Almost 40 years ago, on August 17th, 1984, a young couple was found brutally murdered in the Henrico County woods, just behind King's Crossing Apartments. Donna Hall and Michael Margaret had told their families they were going on a camping trip, but they were no further than .25 miles from Donna's home. Even though heavy rains had already washed away most of the evidence, police did discover something that is believed to be the key too revealing the killer's identity.
