Sunset Limited Derailment

In the early morning hours of October 9th, 1995, Amtrak's Sunset Limited - which regularly traveled between coasts - slipped off of the tracks in rural Arizona. As investigators began looking into the cause of this wreck, they discovered that this was no accident. A group (or an individual masquerading as a group) had conspired to make this derailment happen, leaving four copies of a rambling & poetic "manifesto" at the crime scene. All four letters were signed with the same moniker: "Sons...


The Wolfs

Between 2004 and 2006, a married couple took the Florida real estate market by storm. Victor and Natalia Wolf, who had immigrated to the U.S. a few years earlier from Russia and Germany, had a plan to reinvigorate the central Florida coast. In particular, they set their sights on a town called Citrus Springs, hoping to build a thriving community. Through a number of companies and subsidiaries, the Wolfs built a company worth tens of millions of dollars. But almost as soon as their ascent...


San Francisco John Doe #60

On June 15th, 1985, the body of a young man was found in San Francisco's SoMa district. Despite being unable to learn the man's identity, police quickly discovered that the young man had been tortured and mutilated before his death. Just days after his discovery, the Santa Ana Orange County Register declared that the victim had been "bled to death and that he was butchered in ritualistic fashion in a type of devil-worship ceremony." Two years later, a violent convict confessed to having...


LeRoy Carter Jr.

LeRoy Carter Jr. was a Vietnam veteran, who returned to the states and struggled to get his life back on-track. He became a transient, who spent several years trying to stay out of jail for a litany of petty crimes. On the evening of Saturday, February 7th, 1981, Carter found a quiet alcove along Alvord Lake, in the scenic-yet-troubled Golden Gate Park, where he proceeded to fall asleep. The next morning, a young woman found Carter's "blood-spattered" backpack in Golden Gate Park - which she...


AMA (Ask Me Anything)

To celebrate the three-year mark of Unresolved, I decided to field some questions and do an impromptu "Ask Me Anything." I would like to thank everyone listening for supporting the podcast over the last three years. I cannot believe the podcast has been around for that long, but it would not have been possible without your patience and support. Thank you. Also, a special thank you to those that submitted questions, including those involved with the podcasts Asian Madness (Jessica), Point...


Philip Onyancha

On June 5th, 2010, Kenyan authorities reported that a 32-year old man living in Nairobi - named Philip Onyancha - had been taken into custody. Onyancha had come into police cross-hairs during a kidnapping investigation, exploring the circumstances in which a nine-year old boy had gone missing. Weeks after the boy disappeared, a ransom note appeared, demanding money be sent through a mobile application. Unbeknownst to Philip Onyancha, police were tracking the money. Within days, it led...


Snohomish County Jane Doe

On August 14th, 1977, a pair of blackberry pickers were walking in a wooded area of Everett, Washington - nearby Mariner High School and Paine Field. There, they found the decomposing body of a young woman, who had been brutally murdered. Over the next week, police focused in their investigation on a single suspect: a man named David Marvin Roth, who had confessed to a friend (and who had also been arrested a few days after the murder on unrelated charges). Eventually, Roth would be...

The Texarkana Moonlight Murders (Part Two: The Town That Dreaded Sundown)

In May of 1946, a violent crime unfolds just outside of Texarkana. A farm owner and his wife are shot multiple times by a mysterious attacker, who seems to have disappeared into thin air. While the assault bears a resemblance to a recent string of murders in Texas, it features a number of notable outliers; outliers which make investigators hesitant to officially name it a part of the recent spree. Over the next several decades, this case would grow cold. The murders would inspire an endless...


The Texarkana Moonlight Murders (Part One: The Phantom)

Texarkana is a metropolitan area that is split between Texas and Arkansas. In the 1940's, as World War Two began raging overseas, the area became a hotbed of manufacturing and storage for the war effort. Just months after the end of the war - in February of 1946 - a masked menace began lashing out at young couples in lovers' lanes. The first two victims lived to tell their tale, but the next several victims wouldn't be as lucky. As the hunt began to find this madman, the case would attract...



Starting in 1987, villagers in the central African nations of Rwanda, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) began to float rumors of a vicious crocodile haunting the Ruzizi River. This crocodile - a large male Nile Crocodile - was spotted several times over the next several decades. Eventually, his fearsome appearance and ferocity made him an urban legend throughout the region. Named Gustave by herpetologist Patrice Faye, this crocodile has become a reminder that monsters...


Andrya DeGhelder

On the evening of July 24th, 2018 - a Wednesday - 39-year old Andrya DeGhelder was a no-show for her shift at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center. This was very unlike Andrya, a divorced mother of one, who had a reputation for being reliable and punctual. Her coworkers contacted a friend, who tried to get in-touch with Andrya. Eventually, after paying Andrya an unsuccessful house call, this friend contacted the local sheriff's office, who paid a visit to Andrya's home in Grovetown,...


The Zip Gun Bomber

On May 7th, 1982, 54-year old Joan Kipp returned home from her job as a guidance counselor. She was planning to spend the weekend away with her husband, at their Connecticut summer home, to celebrate Mother's Day. But when she arrived home, she saw that she had received a package in the mail: a cookbook, which she believed to be an early Mother's Day gift. Unfortunately for Joan, the cookbook had been hollowed out. Inside, a three-barreled "zip gun" had been created, which shot out at her as...


Satoshi Nakamoto

On November 1st, 2008, a 9-page whitepaper found its way online. Titled "Bitcoin: A Peer-To-Peer Electronic Cash System," the whitepaper's author clearly articulated their goal to create a decentralized digital currency. The only catch was: this author, named "Satoshi Nakamoto," was a complete unknown. Whoever they were, they had registered a domain for "" in August of that year, and the publication of this whitepaper predated the official launch of Bitcoin by a mere two months....

Siriyakorn "Bung" Siriboon

In the mid-2000's, an Australian man named Fred Pattison moved to Thailand. He had recently fallen in love with a Thai woman named Vanidda, who had two daughters from a prior marriage: Siri ("Pang") and Siriyakorn ("Bung"). In 2008, the family moved to the area of Melbourne, Victoria. They began working towards a better future, and the two girls - Pang and Bung - began attending Australian schools (which they hoped would give them a leg up in the future). All was fine for a time, until the...


The Mississippi Hangings

In October of 1990, a man named David Scott Campbell was arrested in Philadelphia, Mississippi... the same city where, 30 years prior, three civil rights workers had been abducted and murdered by members of the KKK. On his first night in prison - which, coincidentally, was also his 21st birthday - Campbell took his own life. Two years later, in August of 1992, a young man from Jackson, MS met a same fate. Andre Jones, the eighteen-year-old son of a NAACP chapter president and a Nation of...


The Florence Salon Murders

On the morning of November 6th, 2001, a customer walked into a Florence, Montana hair salon. Just inside, she would make a shocking discovery. Inside the salon, just waiting to be discovered, were the bodies of three women: 62-year old Dorothy Harris, 44-year old Brenda Patch, and 71-year old Cynthia Paulus. All three were the last you'd expect to find in the middle of a murder investigation. Over the next two decades, the investigation would focus on a number of connections: an...


Arlis Perry (Update)

In October of 1974, a young woman named Arlis Perry was brutally murdered in the Stanford Memorial Church. Over the years, her case has been bandied about as a potential cult-based murder, has been tied to unrelated offenders such as the Son of Sam, and even became the focus of many "Satanic Panic" theories in the 1980s. I covered this story in one of the first episodes of the podcast, back in March of 2016. Now, some new information has surfaced which points to a resolution. Written,...



On September 11th, 2001, a massive attack brought America to a screeching halt. In the immediate aftermath - while everyone was trying to figure out what had happened, and if it could happen again - another series of events began to play out. Originating in Florida, and then spreading into other populated areas along the East Coast, anthrax-laced letters made every American question their safety. Over the next decade, federal investigators tried to determine who was behind this biological...
