What Happened To Michael Adams?

"In the beginning, you go into a kind of a panic," he recalled. "You don't know what happened. But you know your son didn't just take off. You know that's not something he would just do."

Guest Post from Julia of Considering Cold Cases:

Want to give Julia a big shout out. She did this post super quick. And its really one of the best posts I have ever read. She is such a good writer. It takes me forever to get a post done. This post is so good I felt I had to share it before Valentines Day. Also, Julia's work on a case was featured  on the podcast The True Crime Enthusiast. Please give it a listen to. 

Valentines Day Post

In April 1999, two students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold murdered 12 of their Columbine High School students and a teacher. Ten months later, tragedy struck the school again when two students were murdered, but this case is still unsolved.

What Happened to James Wray Miller?

James Wray Miller's daughter Kristene reached out to me asking me to bring attention to her missing father's story. I am happy to do so. I do want to point out that there are very little details surrounding this case. What you read here is absolutely all that is known in the case so far. Also, I want to commend Miller's daughter Kristene who not only made this entry very easy to write. But who also single handily has fought to try and find out what happened to her father. She has provided me all the info. I didn't need to assist her with anything other than writing this entry.

Missing and Murdered: The Case Of Stephan Mitchell Adams (Part One)

Special thanks to the "Village Crazy Lady" and her hubby for helping me. They were both vital in making this entry possible. Also the reporting on details in this case from various agencies is atrocious. His truck's make and model varies depending on the source. From a GMC to a Chevy and the year either is a 93 or a 95.  As does one of the persons of interest descriptions. And whether he called his girlfriend or she called him. Its all very maddening. This will be part one of a 2 part entry. Part 2 will be some months down the road. In part two I will delve more deeply into the known persons of interest.

“After dropping someone off, he said he was going to my house in Webbers Falls and never made it,”
