The Walker family murders was a 1959 mass murder of the Osprey, Florida family Christine and Cliff Walker, and their two children, Debbie and Jimmie. Christine, who had arrived home first, was raped and then shot. When Cliff walked in a short while later with their two children, he was shot and fell dead. The gunman then shot Jimmie in the head. Jimmie crawled towards his father, and curled up next to him to die. The killer shot Debbie, but drowned her in the bathtub, then fled the house.
I have a very investigative way of thinking, I question everything. I like investigating everything from aircraft accidents, missing persons, unsolved, unexplained mysteries and unnatural phenomenon. I am addicted to solving the unsolvable. If you enjoy this as much as I do you should definitely follow me, I always follow back.About Me Ask me anything Submit
Nicholas Joseph “Nick” Begich, Sr. was a Democratic Party member of the United States House of Representatives from Alaska. He disappeared in a plane crash in Alaska in 1972.
On October 16, 1972, he was aboard a twin engine Cessna 310 along with House Majority Leader Hale Boggs of Louisiana when the plane disappeared during a flight from Anchorage toJuneau. Also on board were Begich’s aide, Russell Brown; and the pilot, Don Jonz. The four were heading to a campaign fundraiser for Begich.
In an enormous search effort, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy, and U.S. Air Force search and rescue planes looked for the four men and their airplane. On November 24, 1972, after proceeding for thirty-nine days, the air search was called off. Neither the wreckage of the plane nor the pilot’s or passengers’ remains have ever been found. All were declared dead on December 29, 1972. The accident prompted Congress to pass a law mandating emergency locator transmitters in all United States civil aircraft.
Kristin Denise Smart went missing on May 25, 1996 while attending California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and has not been heard from since.
The night Smart disappeared, she attended a birthday party of a fellow student, which fell on Memorial Day weekend. At approximately 2:00 a.m., she was found passed out on the lawn of the next door house by two students, Cheryl Anderson and Tim Davis. They decided to assist her home and walked her part of the way until another student from the party, Paul Flores, joined their group. Flores dormitory was closer to Smart’s, whereas Anderson and Davis lived off campus in the opposite direction, so Flores offered to walk her the remainder of the way, allowing them to more conveniently go their separate ways. Flores walked Smart as far as his dormitory, Santa Lucia Hall, and claims he left her to walk the rest of the way, approximately 50 yards, to her dormitory, Muir Hall, by herself. This was the last known sighting of her.
The campus police originally suspected that Smart had gone on an unannounced vacation, as was common among students over the holidays. It was because of this that the campus police were slow at reporting her as a missing person to local law enforcement.
During the high profile Laci Peterson murder investigation, it came to investigators’ attention that Peterson’s husband Scott Peterson (since convicted for his wife’s murder) attended California Polytechnic State University at the same time as Smart. There was a brief initial inquiry into whether Peterson had any involvement. He was on a list of individuals who detectives felt warranted closer investigation at the time; ultimately, however, it was suggested that Smart and Peterson never came into contact, and he was ruled out as a suspect. Peterson has publicly denied any involvement in the case.
Smart’s disappearance remains essentially an unsolved case however, and no firmly proven explanation for her disappearance exists.
Rebecca Coriam, a crewmember on cruise ship Disney Wonder disappeared off the Pacific coast of Mexico on the morning of 22 March 2011.
Coriam returned to the Wonder and her duties as a youth worker. She maintained contact with her family via Facebook and Skype. Six weeks later, on 21 March 2011, the day the ship pulled out of Los Angeles, she sent what would be her last message to her parents via the former, saying she would call the next day.
Her mother grew concerned when, following her reply, 12 hours went by without a response. As she and her husband were going to bed that night, 22 March, the phone rang. It was not Rebecca but an official with Disney, saying that the Coriams’ daughter was missing.
At 9 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time that morning on the Wonder, off the coast of Mexico bound for Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas, Coriam had missed the start of her shift. She was not in her room or anywhere else on the ship, and did not respond to pages over the ship’s public address system. A review of security camera footage found one appearance of her, timestamped 5:45 a.m. An early, unverified account, purportedly from another crew member, claimed she had gone overboard at 3 a.m., nearly three hours earlier.
In the video, Coriam is talking on one of the ship’s internal phones in a crew area. She appears distraught. A young man walks up to her and asks if everything is all right. Her mouth can clearly be read to be saying “Yeah, fine”, after which she hangs up. She then walks away, pushing her hair back and putting her hands in her back pockets, mannerisms her parents say were common for her. The sequence is the last known sighting of her.
The crew searched the ship but found no sign of her. Ships of the U.S. Coast Guard and Mexican Navy searched the international waters through which the Wonder had been sailing during the hours in which Coriam could have gone overboard, if that was what had occurred. They, too, found nothing.
Since the Wonder is registered in The Bahamas, a detective from the Royal Bahamas Police Force flew to the ship to begin a formal investigation once it had returned to Los Angeles, three days after the disappearance. He was reported to have undertaken “several days of onboard investigations”.
Mike and Annmaria Coriam, Rebecca’s parents, were flown out from England to meet the ship when it returned. They met the Bahamian detective and said he told them he had only spent one day on board investigating before flying back home. The detective also told him he had only interviewed a few crew members, and none of the passengers. They claimed Disney kept them in a car with blacked-out windows and brought them on board via a little-used side entrance after all the passengers had disembarked. The Wonder’s captain gave his condolences and expressed his theory that Rebecca had been washed overboard by a wave while at the crew pool, a theory they doubted due to the high walls around it. After that, they were taken to a meeting with Disney executives and the woman Rebecca had been speaking to on the phone.
They were both tired and suffering from jet lag, therefore did not ask too many questions. Mike Coriam believed they would have another chance to do so later, but they never did. Afterwards, they were taken to her room and presented with her belongings.
A few weeks after the Coriams returned home, in early May, Annmaria received an email from Rebecca’s bank reporting that there had been activity on one of her accounts in the weeks since the disappearance. Although they were asked by authorities to keep the details confidential, they were nevertheless hopeful. “The fact that her credit card’s been used could only mean someone has stolen it or she’s still alive,” Mike Coriam told the Daily Mail. Later the Coriams were able to say that the email informed them that someone had apparently tried to access the account on 19 April. They were not aware of it, but later found paperwork among Rebecca’s belongings that linked the account to her. However, they could not find the actual card. In September John Jennings, Rebecca’s uncle, said the password to her Facebook account had apparently been changed by someone unknown.
Since Coriam was not found on the ship, it has been concluded that she went overboard. How, and why, and whether she might have been able to survive are unknown. Many theories hinge on the emotional phone conversation she was having in the video that is the last known sighting of her.
A crew member told Ronson that the call was taped. Many believed it was with a romantic partner. “She was in a relationship, and there were problems, and it was upsetting her,” “Melissa” told Ronson. “It was a very, very intense relationship. It was great and then it was awful. I can’t think of any other reason why she’d have been upset and wandering around by herself at 6 a.m.” However, she says Coriam was on the phone not with the partner but a mutual friend. On the anniversary of Rebecca’s disappearance, their parents told the Liverpool Echo that they heard the names of a young woman and older man on the ship mentioned as possibly being involved in a love triangle with her, and called for them to come forward. They also disclosed that they had heard Disney had sent some additional footage to the FBI for enhancement, but could not say what that footage might contain.
It was suggested that, despondent over the relationship, an emotion possibly exacerbated by the cabin fever of months at sea in close, cramped quarters, Coriam committed suicide. Her family, and friends among the crew, doubt that. “[W]e know she would never harm herself,” said her father. “We just know. That’s why we have been totally mystified from day one.”
The Coriams said Disney officials had told them that Rebecca was drunk and furious on the footage, banging her head into the walls, but that was belied by the actual video. Later, they were able to speak with the woman on the other end of the phone conversation, who told them that while their daughter had been upset at first she calmed down quickly and said she was going to her room. “Melissa”, who had last seen Coriam at 11 p.m. the previous night, told Ronson that she believed that Rebecca went out to the crew pool, one of her favorite places on the ship, to be alone and relax for a while. While there, she might have climbed up and sat on the wall, and then fell. “Bex was a bit of a risk taker,” she said.
However, “Melissa” was dismissive of the suggestion that the slippers allegedly found near the pool, which were included among the belongings returned to Coriam’s parents, had been hers. “Mike and Ann showed them to me,” she told Ronson. “They were too big. They weren’t her style. They were pink and flowery and Hawaiian. I’d never seen her wear them. Why didn’t Disney come to me or her girlfriend and say, ‘Can you identify these as Bex’s?’” While the Coriams later claimed they were actually too small, they were unable to find anyone on the ship who had seen her wearing them and learned that no forensics had been done on them.
The unresolved status of Rebecca’s credit card has given the Coriams hope that if she did fall overboard, their daughter survived and might have been able to swim to shore, or at least far enough to be rescued. She competed in triathlons and kept herself in excellent physical shape. “We’ve never believed she simply disappeared overboard and drowned,” said Mike Coriam almost two months later. “Maybe she fell in the water and was picked up by a fishing boat. Maybe she lost her memory and is in a little village in Mexico. Maybe she was attacked. Maybe she was on board after all and got off.”
Ronson reported that at the time his article was published, the Coriams had received no further updates from Disney or the RBPF on the progress of the investigation. “[W]henever we call anyone, all they say is, ‘The investigation is ongoing,’” Mike Coriam said. “We’ve tried emailing, telling them how we feel, how it’s getting harder but nothing. Just, ‘It’s ongoing.’” The Bahamanian police officer assigned to the case never returned Ronson’s calls.
The Coriams have been joined in their criticism of the investigation by British government officials, Rebecca’s friends among the crew, and advocates for victims of other incidents on cruise ships and their families. The latter, especially, note that 170 passengers and crew have disappeared from cruise ships since 2000, many without being seriously investigated or widely reported. All critics contend that Disney, like other cruise operators, is more interested in avoiding adverse publicity related to these incidents than anything else.
Carver and Walker both believe Disney has more evidence than it has shown, particularly security footage of the area by the pool, and is covering up knowledge of what happened out of fear of adverse publicity. “If there’s a video that shows your daughter going overboard,” Carver told Ronson, “that’s the end of the story. There’s no way someone can go off a ship and it not be recorded.” Melissa told Ronson it was implausible that there was no footage since the pool is close to a number of other important offices, such as human resources and the payroll department, where money and sensitive documents were kept. She believed any coverup by Disney may have been as much about protecting themselves from charges of negligence, since the pool is just below the ship’s bridge and would thus be the portion of the ship where a fall would most likely be seen by someone in a position to start a rescue. “If it was 6 a.m. and they were doing their job and watching the front, someone must have seen her go over,” she told Ronson. “Or if they didn’t, they’re covering up why they didn’t.”
Disney told Ronson that they are deferring to the RBPF. “[They have told] us the investigation is still ongoing. They have not shared a timeline with us, either.” Their spokesperson refused to comment on specifics about whether a tape of the phone call or additional security-camera video exists. “[W]e wish we knew what happened as much as anyone. Rebecca’s disappearance has been difficult and heartbreaking for everyone.”
Amy Lynn Bradley is an American citizen who went missing during a Caribbean cruise. Amy, her parents, and her brother were vacationing on the Royal Caribbean International cruise ship Rhapsody of the Seas.
At 5:30am on March 24, 1998, Amy’s brother left his sister sitting on the outdoor balcony and entered his cabin. She was seen a short time later by other passengers riding in the ship’s elevator with a member of the ship’s band, Blue Orchid, known by the alias “Yellow.” The ship was en route to Curaçao, Antilles at the time she was last seen. The ship docked in Curaçao shortly after she was discovered missing. Extensive searches on the ship and at sea produced no signs of her whereabouts.
Police investigated and discarded many theories regarding her disappearance. It is regarded as unlikely that she fell overboard and drowned, given that she was a trained lifeguard and the ship was close to shore at the time of her disappearance. It is also considered unlikely that she voluntarily disappeared to start a new life. She had recently graduated from college and was anticipating starting a new job after she returned to her home in Chesterfield County, Virginia.
There were possible sightings of Bradley in Curaçao in 1998 and 1999. Two Canadian tourists reported seeing a woman resembling Amy on a beach in Curaçao in 1998. The woman’s tattoos were reportedly identical to Bradley’s. She has a Tasmanian Devil spinning a basketball tattoo on her shoulder, the sun on her lower back, a Chinese symbol on her right ankle, and a Gecko lizard on her navel. She also has a navel ring.
In 1999 an American sailor reported that he went to a brothel on Curaçao and was approached by a young woman. She told him her name was Amy Bradley and asked for his help. At this point, two men in the bar escorted her upstairs. By the time the witness reported this to police several months later, the brothel had burned down.
She was also potentially spotted in 2005, when a witness claimed she was seen in a department store restroom in Barbados.
An image of a young woman resembling Bradley that was emailed to her parents was shown on the Dr. Phil show, and it suggests that she may have been sold into sexual slavery.
In January 2011, CNN Justice raised speculation that a jawbone found in Aruba might belong to Bradley.
Amy has never been found and there is a $250,000 reward for information leading to her return.
The Springfield Three is an unsolved missing person case that began on June 7, 1992, when Sherrill Levitt, Suzie Streeter and Stacy McCall went missing from their home.
Stacy McCall and Suzanne Streeter graduated from Kickapoo High School on June 6, 1992. They were last seen at around 2:00 am on June 7 as they left a graduation party at a friend’s house. The pair planned to spend the night at a friend’s house, but when the friend’s house became too crowded, they instead left to go to Suzie’s mother’s house. Sherrill Levitt, 47, an in-demand hairdresser at a local salon, was a single mother and especially close to her only daughter. It appeared that they arrived at the residence, because their clothing, jewelry, purses and vehicles were still at this location.
The parents of Stacy McCall, contacted police in reference to their daughter’s disappearance from the home of Sherrill Levitt and Suzanne Streeter, at least twelve hours after the women were last seen. Other friends and family began calling and visited the house during the day. The police later admitted that the crime scene had possibly been tainted by the twenty or so people who visited Sherrill’s house. Upon officers’ arrival, the house bore no signs of a struggle, except for a shattered porch globe (the light bulb was still illuminated) that was cleaned up by well-meaning friends of the missing women. Springfield police now believe that the broken glass from the porch light might have given some hint of what transpired that night. All personal property was left behind including purses, money, cars, keys, cigarettes, and the family dog.
Suzanne’s mother, Sherrill Levitt, was last heard from at approximately 11:15 p.m. on June 6, 1992, when she talked with a friend about painting a chest of drawers. Levitt’s car and the furniture she was refinishing as well as her personal belongings were found inside the residence, and it appeared her bed had been slept in when friends and police arrived to check the residence.
Robert Craig Cox told journalists that he knew the women had been murdered and buried and claimed their bodies would never be recovered. Cox, a convicted robber, and the suspect in a Florida murder, told investigators that he was staying the night with his girlfriend in the Springfield area the night the women disappeared, but later told investigators that he stayed at the home of his parents, who confirmed his alibi. Authorities are uncertain if Cox was involved in the case or if he is seeking attention by issuing false statements. Cox has told authorities and journalists that he will tell them what happened to Sherill, Suzie and Stacy after his mother dies.
Local rumors also surround Springfield business man Gerald Carnahan. Carnahan was convicted December 2010 of the abduction, rape and murder of 20 year old Jackie Johns of Nixa, Missouri, in 1985. Although he was the prime suspect in that case since it occurred, attempts to charge him with the crime failed due to lack of evidence until 2007, after his DNA was matched to a preserved semen sample from the 22 year old cold case. He also served a 2 year sentence for the attempted abduction of 18 year old Heather Starkey in 1993, and another 4 year sentence for burglary and arson after attempting to burn down a rival business. He was a free man in 1992; however, there is nothing to suggest that Carnahan was ever questioned or considered a suspect in the case of the Springfield Three by police. Carnahan is currently serving a life sentence for the Johns murder.
Despite over 5,000 tips from the public, neither their whereabouts or their remains have ever been found.
It would be a dream career, an honor to work as a Aerospace Engineer at Area 51.
I am open to the possibility of course but only slightly. The idea of Bigfoot dates back hundreds of years and still to this day there is no concrete, irrefutable proof that the creature exists. Bigfoot would have to reproduce so they don’t go extinct which means the population would have to be in the thousands, at a minimum and yet still nothing. Sure there are supposed sightings and a lot of weak circumstantial evidence that they exist but that’s not good enough. Over all the years people have claimed that they exist we have never found dead Bigfoots, bones, feces, nothing. There is no way these massive creatures could stay completely hidden for hundreds of years with no detection. I know the world is big but its not that big, its just hard for me to believe that these large creatures could stay hidden for so long.
Won’t you spare me over til another year
Well what is this that I can’t see
With ice cold hands takin’ hold of me
Well I am death, none can excel
I’ll open the door to heaven or hell
Whoa, death someone would pray
Could you wait to call me another day
The children prayed, the preacher preached
Time and mercy is out of your reach
I’ll fix your feet til you cant walk
I’ll lock your jaw til you cant talk
I’ll close your eyes so you can’t see
This very air, come and go with me
I’m death I come to take the soul
Leave the body and leave it cold
To draw up the flesh off of the frame
Dirt and worm both have a claim
Won’t you spare me over til another year
My mother came to my bed
Placed a cold towel upon my head
My head is warm my feet are cold
Death is a-movin upon my soul
Oh, death how you’re treatin’ me
You’ve close my eyes so I can’t see
Well you’re hurtin’ my body
You make me cold
You run my life right outta my soul
Oh death please consider my age
Please don’t take me at this stage
My wealth is all at your command
If you will move your icy hand
Oh the young, the rich or poor
Hunger like me you know
No wealth, no ruin, no silver no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul
Wont you spare me over til another year
Wont you spare me over til another year
Wont you spare me over til another year
