UPDATE: Dorothy Jane Scott

I've recently been in contact with Shawn Scott, Dorothy's son. He added some interesting things to my investigation of his mother's cold case. First off I was able to obtain a few pictures of Dorothy that he sent me. I wanted to see more than just the grainy newspaper pic we all have seen a thousand times. 





Also, Swinger's Psych Shop was a store that was previously owned by Dorothy's Father Jacob Scott. John Kycola purchased that store having already owned Custom John's Shop in Anaheim.

 Apparently there was a suspect that Shawn became aware of through several of Dorothy's friends who lived in Missouri. The suspects name was MIKE BUTLER. Apparently, Butler was an unstable individual who lived in the Santiago Mountains and was involved in cult activity. Which makes me think the dead dog that was discovered with her remains makes all the more sense now. Apparently he was obsessed with Dorothy. (Sound like our caller anyone?) His sister worked with Dorothy at Sw…

The Murder of: Kelsie Jean Schelling

NOTE: I would like to point out that I use the term "Suspect" in this entry a little freely. I do not believe that LE has labeled either Donthe Lucas or his mom Sara Lucas as suspects. However in my eyes they clearly are. Also I titled this entry The Murder of Kelsie Jean Schelling. When there is no evidence so far that a murder happened. But in my opinion one clearly did.


"We believe that she was killed," said Pueblo Police Captain Eric Bravo, the detective in charge of Kelsie Schelling's case
"We know he's the last person that was with her, last person to see her alive, the last person to talk to her," said Pueblo Police Capt. Eric Bravo. "I believe he did kill Kelsie."
