About

In the barren wasteland of cyberspace
an innocent bystander ponders and pontificates on the aftermath of murderous deeds;
like the hook-handed killer of urban legend lore,
Jodie Froster lives.

  1. Hi! Love your website! You are a sole blogger on true crime much like my friend Meagan who runs The Charley Project. I read as far as I could, until I hit the bottom of the webpage, where unfortunately all the print ran together – please let me know when that’s fixed – thanks!

    • So glad you enjoy the site—I can’t believe a single person writes all the profiles on the Charley Project; that is seriously impressive, and I’m sure the families of the missing really appreciate the coverage.

      I’ll try to figure out what’s up with WordPress; thanks again for your interest, and if you’re in the North East hope you survived Snowzilla intact:)

        I came across your blog on accident and read it till the begining. Please tell me you still write or have more subjects? I found your style facinating and enjoyable. I do hope you have more to share or another page I missed. Hal

    do u have a picture of bill list? thank you

    • I’ve never been able to find any photos online, but there’s a documentary in the works about the murder mansion and I’m hoping Houston news sites dig some images out of their archives for the event; if I find one I’ll definitely post it.

    I came across your site via the link provided on the charley project site and spent the entire evening reading all of your posts. I was really disappointed when I reached the end (your first post). I’m a true crime ‘buff’ and judging from the cases you have written about we share interests in the same type of cases. I really enjoy your writing and your insights.
    I will definitely keep checking in to see your next post. If your looking for any ideas I have a few ‘pet’ cases I think you might be interested in, if you’re not already:
    The Springfield Three Missing Woman (I was born and raised in Springfield but this baffling multiple abduction has found a presence on crime message boards)
    EAR/ONS (East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker)- killed mostly couples, called and taunted his surviving rape victims for years after their ordeal, has never been caught or even close to being caught.
    The Disappearence of Mary Shotwell-Little- this case has the potential b to drive me mad! Especially when you factor in the unsolved murder of the woman who was hired by Mary’s previous employer, even sat at Mary’s desk.
    The Disappearence of the Beamount Children in Australia- I can’t imagine the anguish of a mother losing all three of her children, never to find out what happened to them.
    The Murder of Judy Smith- vanished from accompanying her husband on a business trip to Philadelphia, later found on a remote trail in North Carolina

    P.S. I also live in NYC, a transplant from the mid-west who has grown to love and greatly appreciate this crazy place!

    Also found you via Charley Project – love your writing style and, of course, the subject matter! For some reason my brain reads the posts in the voice of the City Confidential narrator. Keep on postin’ – you’ve got some great stuff here!

    TOPIX.com: In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king.

    Topix.com is a sewer because that’s the social media of choice for serial killers.
    They call it the swamp and that’s where they gather together to swap recipes, talk about their pets and cyber slay anyone that gets too close to the truth.
    I came to that conclusion fairly quickly but it was like watching a train wreck; I couldn’t take my eyes off it. To test my theory do the following.
    Any idea or statement that reflects the truth gets pulled by the topix moderators.
    On several different topix threads,post the words “Topix is a site for Serial Killers”
    That would be tame as a kitten compared to some of the filth that’s posted on that site wouldn’t you say? Now watch how fast your post disappears.
    Babylon.

    Oh man, as a long-time, cross-country female hitchhiker, I just gave myself the biggest chills reading through your blog for murdered hitchhiker stories. I dunno why, I guess I was just looking for a scare. The one about the teenage couple in Florida was the saddest.

    Came across your website as I was searching for information on Michael Palmer of Alaska. As I have a love/hate relationship with Alaska, I enjoyed what you said about Alaska, reading it aloud to my colleagues who found it as humorous as I did. From there I went on to spend a good chunk of my morning reading from your site. Tragic, mysterious, and informative. Please continue the good work.

    I dig your style. You are a very talented writer and I shall consume every bit of your blog in short order. The next few days will be extremely unproductive.

    please contact me regarding OCCK. I lived on Hickory Leaf Street in Southfield in the 1970s. Some guy tried to get me to get in his car.

  13. Celeste says:

    When can we expect a new story?? Im dying here!😄

  14. Kenny says:

    Ha, I live in the “murder house” of one of your stories!

    I went to college with Beth Ringheim, daughter or Harve. She told me there were 2 distinct possibilities in the murders. One of her suspicions is one you did not mention. Email me if you want to know what I think.
