Thirty-five year old Kathryn Adam had made a decision: she was taking her sixteen year old daughter, leaving her husband and starting a new life. It wouldn't be easy, but she was determined to make it work. Then, just when things seemed to be falling into place the unimaginable happened.

On April 29th, 1993, Kathryn left for work in the early morning hours. She never returned, vanishing along with her van. When her daughter reported her missing, police traced her steps to a storage unit where she kept supplies for her job. There they found a pool of blood and signs of a struggle. Not long after, her van was found abandoned a few miles away. It was caked with mud and there was blood inside.

Was Kathryn Adam the victim of a random crime or did someone who knew her, and her schedule, lie in wait that early morning with a gun and murderous intent?

148 - The Murder of Paul Featherman and Nancy Baugh

***Sponsored by: Ana Luisa! Visit AnaLuisa.com/Trace and save 10% off your entire purchase with code TRACE***

Twenty-seven year old Paul Featherman and twenty year old Nancy Baugh were living their dream on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Just before summer, on June 2nd, unknown perpetrators entered their rented home near Hanalei Bay. Paul was killed instantly, but Nancy's fate was unknown. Police would ultimately determine after witnessing her boyfriend's murder, she had been abducted by the killers.

For thirty-four years the mystery of Nancy's abduction haunted two families. Then, in the winter of 2012 after massive flooding hammered the island, Nancy's remains were discovered. It was ultimately found that she had likely been killed the same night as Paul and her remains had been concealed just miles from the crime scene.

Over the years, there have been many rumors about who may have been responsible. For some, it must have had to do with the influx of drug traffickers in the late 1970's, for others it was likely someone the couple knew and trusted. Yet beyond those two theories, there is the one people are too afraid to talk about involving two notorious brothers whose names they dare not speak.

147 - The Disappearance of Nita Mayo

Sixty-four year old Nita Mayo loved going on long drives, exploring the countryside and finding new sites to see. Throughout her life she had an adventurous spirit and a zest for life but during one trip in August of 2005 she would mysteriously vanish.

Two days passed before investigators discovered Nita's vehicle, left behind at Donnell's vista, a beautiful but dangerous overlook situated on California's highway 108 which cut through the Sierra Nevada Mountains. While police believed the location of the vehicle would lead to Nita and that she may be lost in the wilderness, her family believed something far more sinister had occurred.

Despite multiple searches spanning several years, not a single trace of Nita was ever located. Eventually investigators were forced to admit that Nita was likely not anywhere near Donnell's vista. There was no evidence of foul play, but several disappearances from the same area would soon lead many to wonder if the mother and grandmother may have fallen victim to someone during her journey.

146 - The Murder of Julie Bell Davis

**Sponsored by Headspace! Visit Headspace.com/Trace for a FREE one month trial!

Thirty-three year old Julie Bell Davis was making strides. Married to the love of her life, mother of two beautiful children and now breaking her own sales records at work. Everything was looking up until it was all destroyed in a moment of madness.

On the evening of August 28th, 1997, Julie was working out of her Des Moines office. She'd recently gotten approval to move locations to a high rise building downtown. That night, she was packing up when an unknown killer entered the office and struck.

From the very beginning the investigation was almost cold with police acknowledging they had few clues. What they did know, however, was that whoever had committed the crime was no beginner and knew how to cover their tracks. Over the course of the next six months, three more murders occurred and some bore striking similarities to Julie's.

Years later, police would capture a serial killer, tying him to some of those murders but the question still lingers: was Julie Bell Davis one of his victims or is it possible her killer may have been someone she knew and trusted?

145 - The Disappearance of Robin Trivisonno

In the early morning hours of Monday, January 20th, 1997, twenty-eight year old Robin Trivisonno was looking for a ride. Asking around to friends in the bar she previously worked at, no one was able to help. Then a mysterious man approached and the two walked out together. Neither has ever been seen again.

Investigators faced a tough case; few clues, no major leads and their main person of interest was unidentified. While witnesses were able to give extremely detailed descriptions, no one knew his name, where he was from or what he was driving. The case went cold almost immediately.

After four long months, several pieces of evidence were found in an unexpected place leading investigators to wonder if they had been there all along or if Robin's abductor might have planted them. Twenty-four years later, family and investigators are still hoping to find the truth and discover what happened to the twenty-eight year old mother of three.

Eighteen year old Jennifer Pentilla was driven to help others. Fresh out of high school she traveled to Mexico on a mission trip to paint churches and assist the local community. When an opportunity arose to go back, she leapt at it.

What was supposed to be a group bike trip from San Diego, down into Mexico, fell through but Jennifer was undeterred and even if she had to go alone, she was set on making the trip. In October of 1991, she set off on her own and for a time the trip was going well.

However, on October 17th she made her last call home and mysteriously disappeared from Deming, New Mexico. Over a year later, most of her belongings were found in the desert not far from the town of Hatch. Thirty years later, the question remains, what became of Jennifer Pentilla?

143 - The Abduction of Heather Kullorn

***Sponsored by: BetterHelp. Visit BetterHelp.com/Trace to save 10% today!***

Twelve year old Heather Kullorn was looking forward to spending a week with family friends but what she imagined to be a fun week would instead become a nightmare. During the early morning hours of July 15th, 1999, Heather mysteriously vanished.

What police had imagined to be a straight forward search for a child quickly became a chaotic situation filled with inconsistencies, lies and evidence that showed Heather was in dire trouble. The discovery of a drug lab aroused their suspicions and soon Heather's case was deemed a violent abduction.

While investigators initially considered the crime random, the further they dug, the more the sinister reality came into view. It seemed apparent that the child had likely been taken not by a stranger, but by someone she knew and trusted. Did she see something she shouldn't have and someone moved to silence her or was there something else going on beneath the surface?

Twenty-two year old Jenna Nielsen had picked up a job delivering newspapers in the early morning hours. The mother of two wanted to help support the family she'd started with her husband, Tim. Eight months pregnant with their third child, a boy to be named Ethen, Jenna would soon be taking time off to be with her new baby.

Tragically, what should have been a time of celebration would become a period of mourning and grief which has never ended. In the early morning hours of June 14th, 2007, Jenna and her unborn son were brutally murdered.

For the past thirteen years investigators, and her family, have struggled to discover her killer's identity and see justice served. Still, to this day, the question lingers: was Jenna the victim of a random crime or is it possible she could have been killed by someone she knew?

***Sponsored by: Simplisafe. Visit SimpliSafe.com/Trace for a sixty day free trial and a FREE home security camera.

Thirty-eight year old Sandra Sollie was finally going to become a mother. In the Spring of 1994 she was seven months pregnant and eagerly anticipating the arrival of her son, whom she'd named Brandon Michael.

While her family was planning for the excitement of a baby shower they instead would face the pain of loss and unknowing. On May 23rd, Sandra mysteriously vanished leaving behind few clues. Sandra wasn't reported missing until June 5th so investigators were already two weeks behind.

At the same time, a massive search was underway for a missing four year old, Kali Poulton, who had vanished on the same day. The difference between the investigations was startling and Sandra's family felt she did not receive the attention she deserved.

What happened to Sandra Sollie? Was this a random crime or, perhaps, one perpetrated by someone she knew and trusted?

Over the course of one week in New York City in 1985, a violent and brutal killer wielding an axe took the lives of two women: 85 year old Janet Scott and 58 year old Ruth Potdevin. Both women were killed in hotels within days of each other, less than a half mile apart.

While the crimes themselves were grisly enough, the killer went further by leaving a gruesome puzzle behind at each scene. While the NYPD believed they would capture the assailant, his wrath disappeared just as mysteriously as it had originally materialized.

Did he finish what he aimed to do or did he simply move on to kill again, evading police once more?

***Sponsored by: AcornTV! Visit Acorn.tv and use promo code "Trace" to get your first 30 days Free!***

Eighty-six year old Patrick Carnes was making the two thousand mile drive from Toledo, Ohio to Reno, Nevada. Joined by his beloved dog, Lucky, he was set to return home by Thursday, April 14th, 2011. Unfortunately, while he was making good time, Patrick would never get home.

After being stopped by a trooper at 9pm on the 13th, Patrick mysteriously vanished. He had planned to stop off in Elko that night, a town just fifty miles away. Whether or not he ever made it to Elko is unknown, but just nine hours later his car was found abandoned more than one hundred and fifty miles away.

Initially it was believed Patrick may have gotten lost and wandered into the darkness of the desert but when investigators realized his car had been found in the same location as that of a woman who went missing five years earlier foul play quickly came into view.

Was Patrick Carnes the victim of a random crime or could his disappearance be linked to another unsolved case?

In late January, 2002, twenty-three year old Bobby Zajac, twenty-six year old Erin Golla and twenty-nine year old James Springer Jr were preparing to leave the AMF Broadway Bowling Lanes in Littleton, Colorado, when they were seized upon by an armed individual.

After robbing the safe, the thief turned into a cold blooded killer, executing all three with a handgun. Moments later he casually walked out of the building, smirking to a witness waiting to pick up Erin before driving off into obscurity.

For nearly twenty years police and the families have sought justice, though it has remained elusive. Was this a random robbery gone wrong? A planned attack? Was one of the victims an intended target or could this horrible crime be linked to another series of murders that happened just two months later?

137 - The Murder of Anita Knutson

***Sponsored by: Orgain - visit tryorgain.com/trace for 20% off your first order***

Eighteen year old Anita Knutson had just completed her freshman semester at Minot State University in North Dakota. Living in an apartment with a roommate, Anita was working two jobs and excited about summer break.

However, over the first weekend in June of 2007, Anita's family couldn't get in touch with her which was extremely out of character. After several attempts, Anita's father Gordon made the one hour drive to check on her. There he would make a horrifying discovery.

Anita had been murdered, that much was clear, but who could have been responsible was a far more complex question involving a sordid cast of characters from a guy with an unrequited crush, a contentious roommate, the maintenance man, a group of construction workers and others.
Despite being in possession of both DNA and fingerprints, police have yet to name an official suspect and while the case grows cold, a grieving family and frustrated community have begun to wonder if justice will ever be served.

Simplisafe: Visit Simplisafe.com/Trace for a free HD Camera when you sign up!***

Twenty-seven year old Susan Taraskiewicz had been working for Northwest Airlines out of Logan Airport, in Boston, for five years. After suffering through a harsh assortment of sexual harassment and threats of physical violence she managed to do something no woman had before her; she was promoted to the position of Equipment Service Crew Chief. Unfortunately while she was excited by her new position she also began to receive more aggressive harassment and threats.

On the weekend of September 12th and 13th, 1992, Su was working overnight. At approximately 1am on the 13th, she volunteered to go out and pick up lunch for her crew however she would never return. Rather than report her absence, her co-workers clocked her back in and later claimed to be covering for her. Su failed to show up for work for her next shift and on the very morning her parents went to file a missing person's report her body was discovered.

Su had been brutally beaten and stabbed before being stuffed in the trunk of her own car. While police initially considered the crime to be random, a massive investigation targeting a credit card theft ring at the airport soon aroused suspicions that Su could have been killed by someone she worked with who believed she had blown the whistle.

SOLVED - The Abduction and Murder of Christine Jessop - Ep 092

In October of 1984, nine year old Christine Jessop vanished from the streets of Queensville, Ontario, Canada. Months later, her remains were recovered more than fifty kilometers from her home. Police searched for her killer and eventually narrowed their suspects down to one man.

However, that man, was later cleared of any involvement through the use of DNA despite having been taken to court twice, and convicted once. In the years since, no suspect has ever been named but now, thanks to DNA and genealogy research, Christine's killer has finally been identified.

Forty-one year old Leah Rowlands was starting a new life. She moved to the small town of Cozad, Nebraska where her boyfriend lived. She had been married previously, from which she had two sons, but had fled from what she described as a very abusive relationship.

Now in Cozad, she was putting the pieces back together. She had just been promoted to manager at the Amoco station where she worked. However, while her first day under her new position should have been a good one, Leah would be brutally murdered in a bizarre robbery.

While police theorized that the crime may have been random, Leah's brother argued that it may have been an organized hit, funded by Leah's own ex-husband.

Seventy-six year old Al Sicherer was finally living his life out in the open. After the passing of his beloved wife of forty years, Al confessed his secret: he was gay. Having his own health problems, Al decided it was now or never and he wanted to live his life honestly and by following his heart.

Al maintained a quiet life, most of the neighbors at his condo knew him only as the quiet gentleman on the sixteenth floor. However, at night, Al began going to bars and clubs, seeking out potential partners. Sadly, one of those partners may have been the man who eventually killed him.

In July of 2001, Al's daughter Beverly made the horrifying discovery. Al had been brutally beaten and stabbed. There were a lot of clues, fingerprints, DNA, a shoe print and surveillance footage. Despite all of this, though, the name of the man last seen with Al has remained a mystery. If only that mystery could be solved, Al's killer could be brought to justice.

132 - The Disappearance of Kristine Kupka

***Sponsored by Trivia Star. Download it today in the Apple or Google stores***

Twenty-eight year old Kristine Kupka was following her dreams. A firm supporter of women's rights, Kristine was just months from graduating with a degree in philosophy from which she planned to move into law school. Then she got a life changing surprise -- she was pregnant.

Excited by the opportunity to be a mother, Kristine immediately began planning for the future. While she wasn't sure how the father would receive the news she couldn't be prepared for how he reacted. He begged Kristine to get an abortion and explained that he had lied to her; he was married and this pregnancy would destroy his life. Kristine empathized but she had no plans of aborting her child.

Months later, Kristine vanished after being picked up by the child's father. While he argues he dropped Kristine off after several hours, others believe he played a direct role in the young mother to be's disappearance.

Ten year old Bianca Lebron arrived at her school in Bridgeport, Connecticut on the morning of Wednesday, November 7th, 2001. However, unlike her classmates, Bianca wasn't planning on attending classes that day. Instead, she explained to her teacher and friends that her uncle would be picking her up for a day of shopping at the mall.

Right around 8:30am, a two-tone brown van showed up driven by an adult male. Bianca made her way across school property, climbed into the van and drove off. She has never been heard from again. No one checked Bianca's claim, no one verified that her trip with her uncle was approved. If they had they'd have discovered the truth: Bianca Lebron didn't have an uncle.

130 - The Vanishing of Mikelle Biggs

***Sponsored by Solid Gold. Visit SolidGoldPet.com/Trace***

Eleven year old Mikelle Biggs was waiting for the ice cream truck to come by with her younger sister, Kimber. Losing her patience and growing cold, Kimber went home. Immediately upon arriving, her mother sent her back out to tell Mikelle to come home too. In total she was gone less than ninety seconds, but in that short window of time, Mikelle had been abducted.

All that was left behind was the bike Mikelle had been riding, the rear wheel still spinning. While a neighbor with a criminal past caught the eye of investigators they never had enough evidence to charge him. Less than a year later, he attacked and nearly murdered a nearby neighbor. Was he responsible for Mikelle's abduction or is it possible that someone else may have played a role and has eluded authorities for more than twenty years?

In March of 2007 a land surveyor was examining a ten acre lot in Fort Myers, Florida. Not far in from the dirt road which leads to the area, the surveyor discovered a human skull jutting out from the earth. After police arrived on the scene more bodies were found and, ultimately, the skeletons of eight men were unearthed.

Over the years, law enforcement has worked hard not only to discover who may have killed the eight men, but also, who the eight men themselves were. Being that their remains were skeletal and there were no personal items of clothing found, identification has been a true challenge. However, the men's identities may be able to provide a clue as to who it was who murdered them.

Sometime between 3 and 3:30am, multiple neighbors called police to report the sound of a woman screaming. While New York State Police went out to check, they could find nothing to indicate any issues. Several hours later they were notified that Bethanie had vanished and that she lived very close to where neighbors had heard the screaming.

Twenty-six year old Deborah Poe was set to work the graveyard shift at a local convenience store. After arriving at work all seemed to be going well, but just hours later, the store was found empty and abandoned and Debbie was gone.

Investigators faced a challenging case with few, if any clues. Adding to the confusion was the account of a witness who had been in the store that night, but instead of being helped by Debbie, she was instead assisted by an unknown man who was pretending to work at the store. Could he have been involved in Debbie?s disappearance or does the truth lie closer to home?

In the spring of 1995, an unknown woman walked into the Oslo Plaza hotel and checked into a room. Three days later she was dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, but that is where the mystery truly began.

All of the information she provided was false, a fake name, address and business. Her true identity was unknown and her possessions offered few suggestions. The tags were cut from her clothing, there was no ID or passport and the identity of a mysterious man seen in her company has never been determined, if he actually existed.

In late October of 1978 Gary and Joan Deal put their three year old son Jason to bed. Within hours all three were murdered in grisly fashion by an unknown assailant. The murders weren't discovered for several days, by which time the killer had already made his escape.

For more than forty years the victims' families and police have been haunted by this horrifying and tragic crime. Evidence was extremely thin and while police had developed several persons of interest they never had enough to make an arrest. Now, evidence is being re-analyzed using modern techniques in hopes of finally cracking this terrifying mystery.

However, the more his parents dug into the case the more inconsistencies they found. The crime scene told a very different story and injuries to his body suggested the possibility that he had been in a fight the night he died.

Was Russell Evans killed in a random hit and run, was it a targeted attack or was he severely beaten before being run over those who had attacked him?

***Use Promo Code TRACE2020 to save 10% on a CrimeCon Pass***

Sixteen year old Lashaya Stine snuck out of her families home during the early morning hours of Friday, July 15th, 2016. She never returned. Over the years her family and police have received multiple tips about Lashaya possibly having been forced into sex trafficking.

While witnesses claim to have seen Lashaya, and others claim to know her assailant, Lashaya has yet to be found and her captor has never been directly identifies. If indeed Lashaya has been trafficked, as authorities believe, there is a chance she is still out there and someone may hold the key to bringing her home.

106 - The Murder of Hannah Truelove

***Sponsored by BetterHelp.com Visit BetterHelp.com/Trace for 10% off your first month!***

Sixteen year old Hannah Truelove had her whole life ahead of her, but it was all taken in a night of madness. On August 23rd, 2012, Hannah was reported missing when she failed to return home. Police initiated a search but a heavy rainstorm delayed their efforts. Less than twenty-four hours later, Hannah?s body was found a quarter mile from her home, in the woods surrounding the apartment complex.

Mysterious tweets in the days leading up to her murder led many to speculate that Hannah may have known she was in danger. After investigating, police told the media that they believed Hannah knew her killer. Who it could have been, no one could guess, and for the past eight years, Hannah?s killer has remained at large.

Keith Reinhard was looking to start a new adventure in life. As he approached middle age he wanted to achieve some of the dreams he?d missed out and one of those dreams involved writing a novel. On the advice of a friend he took a leave of absence from work and went down to Silver Plume, Colorado, a small isolated town sure to promise the peace and quiet he sought.

Silver Plume, though, didn?t provide as much inspiration as he?d imagined until he learned the story of Tom Young, the man who had rented out the same building Keith did. Young vanished one afternoon, and Keith thought this would be a great story to write. However, Keith was soon overwhelmed by the mystery and would eventually become a part of it.

One afternoon, Keith set off for the dense forests and mountains surrounding Silver Plume. He never returned and what was left behind was an enduring mystery that continues to haunt his family and the people of Silver Plume to this day.

104 - The Disappearance of Brianne Wolgram

On September 5th, 1998, nineteen year old Brianne Wolgram left her home in Revelstoke, British Columbia, to pick up a friend. She never returned. Searches for Brianne turned up nothing for days until her car was found abandoned on a logging road in the middle of the mountains. There was no trace of Brianne.

When last seen, Brianne was in the company of three mysterious women who have never been identified. One witness reported seeing a female on the road near Brianne?s car the day after she vanished but that woman?s identity has never been ascertained.

For twenty-two years, Brianne?s family and law enforcement have sought the answers to this enduring mystery and to this day none of the three women seen with her that night have ever been identified or come forward with information.

There is a GoFundMe accepting donations for a reward for information in Brianne?s case. You can contribute here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/find-brianne-wolgram
