In the mid-1980s, George Trepal was known as a highly intelligent chemist and computer whiz, and a part of Mensa, an elite organization whose members have intelligence quotients that place them in the top 2% of the worldwide population. It’s a great feat that 98% of the population could only wish for, but they’d never dare to be in Trepal’s shoes three decades later. Today, 71-year old George is death row inmate number 121965 at Polk County, Florida. For 29 years now, he has been dreading the day when his death warrant will finally be served for a murder he committed in 1988 in  Alturas, Polk County, Florida. It wasn’t a crime bursting with violence and rampage, but a carefully planned murder-by-poisoning only a knowledgeable chemist like George could pull off.

Parricide is defined as the killing of a close relative, usually a parent. It encompasses patricide, the killing of one’s father, as well as matricide wherein the mother is killed by her own child. In the United States, parricide represents just 1% of all homicide cases in which the relationship of the victim and offender is known, making it an extremely rare case in America. Among the few notable incidents of such unforgivable crime, the case of Stacey Lannert has been one of the often cited. She has become part of the 25% of offenders, 18 years old and under, who killed their father based on a decades-long study of parricide cases in America.  It’s definitely not a source of pride for the Lannert family, but Stacey has risen above this ordeal,and taken an inspiring path since then.

Rising incidents of disappearances, although very unfortunate, are not uncommon in America. However, no one is immune from the heartbrokenness of having a loved one vanished, and from the fear of a looming possibility that the missing is lost forever, or finally found but lifeless. The period between March 2014 and May 2015 was a harrowing time for the rural town of Chillicothe, Ohio’s first capital. Not accustomed to widespread crime and violence, the town was gripped by terror as 6 women disappeared one after another. Chillicothe mourned the death of four of the victims, while the families of the remaining two women hold on to the tail of hope that they’d one day find their loved ones still alive.

For many Americans, this a difficult fact to grapple with: the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System or NamUS states that more than 600,000 individuals go missing in the U.S. every year, leaving their loved ones in deep quandary. On the bright side, many of the children and adults who vanished are swiftly found, alive and well, while 4,400 unidentified bodies are recovered each year. The rest which number to tens of thousands, however, remain missing for more than a year, and become cold cases. The fate of Megan Renee Foglesong makes her part of this statistics since she went missing in December 2015 in Kansas. No one has been arrested and charged, and interest in Megan’s case was only reinvigorated when one person died – the only suspect in her unresolved, mysterious disappearance.

On March 9, 1976, the screaming banner story of “The Washington Post” read: 

“Five members of a Bethesda family — the wife, mother and three sons of a missing State Department official — were beaten to death in their home last week and then driven to North Carolina, where their bodies were set afire in an open grave.” The five bodies found at a burning pit in a woods in Columbia, North Carolina were later connected to deplorable murders in a split-level house in Bethesda, Montgomery County in Maryland on March 1, 1976. The wasted lives belonged to William Bradford Bishop’s family – touted as a barometer of an ideal American family in their community during the 1970s. But what their neighbors and the public didn’t know was the troubled figurehead of the Bishop family, Bradford, who when stripped of his prestigious title as an American diplomat revealed a shocking persona – that of an unhinged murderer.

History has inspired mankind that one can turn into a wunderkind. Young age has not hindered a lot of people from achieving great success. Alexander the Great started conquering countries as an18-year old young, brave man. Mary Shelley got her classic novel “Frankenstein” published when she was only 20. Mark Zuckerberg launched Facebook at the age of 19 in 2004, while David Karp introduced Tumblr when he was only 21 years old. But one is never too young as well to be considered a nuisance in the society, and worst, be named as “one of  the youngest serial killers in American history” at 21 years old. Such was the unfortunate destiny of Arizona native William Inmon who, in 2009, confessed to murdering three persons in a span of 3 years.

Burning a person to death is unequivocally diabolical, and dying slowly while getting scorched by blazing flames is extreme torture. Burning at stake had been a method of execution practiced during ancient times, and later adopted in Europe and North America. Although the last execution by burning in the United States involving a slave accused of rape in South Carolina occurred in 1830, horrible cases of people burned to their deaths still happen today. In July 2019, Judy Malinowski of Ohio died 700 days after her crazy ex-boyfriend doused gasoline and set her on fire. 15-year old boy Demetrius Griffin, Jr. was burned alive in September 2016 inside a burning garbage can in an alley in Austin, Chicago. And in 2014, the small town of Courtland, Mississippi was grappled with shock and sadness when a well-loved 19-year old cheerleader of her high school football team was burned to death, and died shortly thereafter. Her tragic story is the focus of our episode today.

Have you been to the Marshall County Historical Society Museum on E. Johnson Avenue, Warren, Minnesota? Visitors will feel the nostalgia of living in a small 1880s community through its historical buildings at the Settler’s Square. A stroll along the boardwalk presents attractions like a vintage bank, barbershop, tavern, school, church and many more. Its new 10,000 square foot-Visitor Centre has been attracting more guests because of its many exhibits, war artifacts room, collection of antique vehicles, and the so-called “UFO Car,” undoubtedly one of the museum’s star attractions. According to Sherlyn Meiers, Marshall County Historical Society Director, large crowds come to the museum just to see the early 1970s Ford LTD cruiser. And what is so special about this outmoded car that piques the interest of more people than a 1912 Maxwell, a Hart Parr Steamer, and a Studebaker Wagon of 1870s? The car with a shattered windshield and bent antennas is by all means not just any ordinary car. It was a central character in an alleged UFO encounter in 1979 which is popularly known as the “Val Johnson Incident” with Marshall County, Minnesota Deputy Sheriff Val Johnson as the sole witness of an out-of-this-world experience. Was it perpetrated by a force from outside of the human realm? Did Johnson face head-on an unidentified flying object?

On December 19, 1959, while the rest of the Christian world was in a frenzy preparing excitedly for the Christmas holidays, the small place of Osprey in Florida was in hysteria.  A young family was inconspicuously murdered taking the lives of 25-year old Cliff Walker, his 24-year old wife Christine, their 3-year old son Jimmie, and 1-year old daughter Debbie. Investigations had been conducted, 587 people had become suspects at one time or another, American novelist Truman Capote and one of his best-selling true crime books had been indirectly enmeshed in the case, yet the Walker family murders remain unsolved as of its 60th anniversary on December 19, 2019.

Brooksville, Kentucky: The Unsolved Mystery of Erica Fraysure’s 1997 Disappearance
Brooksville is the county seat of Kentucky’s Bracken County which was settled before 1800 by William and Joel Woodward; thus, it was originally known as Woodward’s Crossroads. However, due to its more central location, it formally became a county seat on February 16, 1839 courtesy of the legislation sponsored by Senator David Brooks. Thus, Woodward’s Crossroads was renamed Brooksville in his honor. The small town could perhaps be described as plain, sleepy and uneventful as it was devoid of headline-grabbing mysteries, controversies and repugnant crimes. Which makes it an ideal place to live in and raise a family, if I may say. Life in Brooksville remained that way for almost 2 centuries – not until teenage girl Erica Fraysure disappeared with nary an evidence in 1997. It shook Brooksville to its core, and changed the dynamics of the people’s lives in this small Kentucky town. What’s more demoralizing is that Erica’s case remains unsolved, and is still being investigated not as a crime, but as a mysterious case of a missing person.

Craig, Alaska: The Unsolved Massacre on a Fishing Boat in 1982
Alaska, “The Last Frontier,” by almost any measure of coldness has the coldest and longest winters, the coldest summers, and the most number of freezing degree days. So just imagine the piercing coldness that blanketed Alaska on January 17, 1982 when “Cold Sunday” took place. It was a meteorological event wherein unprecedentedly cold air swept down from Canada, and plunged temperatures across much of the United States far below existing all-time record lows. Also in 1982, a man-made tragedy shocked Alaska that has become its worst cold case of massacre in history. In the tiny southeast Alaskan fishing village of Craig, eight individuals were killed by multiple gunshots, and left charred in an expensive fishing boat that was set ablaze by a still unknown perpetrator. Up to this day, it is still considered as Alaska’s most tragic unsolved mass homicide.

 North Philly, Pennsylvania: Unmasking Serial Killer Gary Heidnik - the Real-life Buffalo Bill

 One of the most chilling movie villains that brought terror on the wide screens is Jame Gumb, most popularly known as “Buffalo Bill,” from the 1991 award-winning psychological horror movie “The Silence of the Lambs.” Created by American writer Thomas Harris for his 1988 novel of the same title, the fictional character is a serial killer whose modus operandi is too fiendish. He relishes kidnapping overweight women, depriving them of food for weeks, killing and then skinning them dumping the victims in nearby rivers. As for the women’s skin, Buffalo Bill makes them into a “woman suit” for himself. This prods one to ask, “Is there a real Buffalo Bill who exists somewhere in the world?” The answer is partly “yes” because it turns out that Harris developed Buffalo Bill as a composite character – meaning, he based it not just on one, neither 2 nor 3, but six real-life serial killers. And one of them was Gary M. Heidnik who kidnapped, raped and tortured six women while holding them prisoner in a pit. He was finally sentenced to death, and executed by lethal injection on July 6, 1999 at age 55.
