UPDATE 5-5-2017


I have been in recent contact with the victim's mother Audrey McCullough who requested my assistance last month. She has requested that I add additional details to this entry. According to the official police report the officer who was called and came upon the scene stated:

"I was dispatched to a shooting. Upon my arrival, I observed the victim Brandon McCullough, laying in a position slumped over with his back against the south wall across from apartment 1123. Brandon still had a cigarette in his mouth. It was still lit. Brandon had a gun shot wound to the head. There was a burn mark contact shot on his hat. There was a slug found in the wall to the right of him. Brandon was still breathing but unresponsive. Brandon was transported to Memorial Hospital. I conducted a canvas of the area. Some people in the complex state to me that they heard one gunshot. They stated they observed a two colored truck leaving the scene. The vehicle was driven by a dark skinned black male. I spoke with two witnesses. 

(Withholding Witness #1 Name) Stated that Brandon's sister lived in the complex in apartment #1134. She stated she saw Brandon earlier that day standing in the breezeway. She stated she heard a gunshot also, But did not see who did the shooting. 

(Withholding Witness #2 Name) Stated that when she was leaving the apartment, she observed a gray gallant with four males, When she walked out of the breezeway they drove off. A few minutes later a neighbor called her and told her that she heard a gun shot in the building. Witness also stated that a week prior she observed a tall black running out of the breezeway. She then saw Brandon coming down the stairs in tattered clothing, and a shoulder injury. 

Forensic, Detectives, and Supervisor was notified and responded. Forensics collected the evidence and recorded the crime scene. A crime scene log was maintained. The victim cell phone was given to detective and Southside Fire Department responded for clean up.

The Vanishing of Megan Renee Foglesong

   I DEDICATED SUNDOWN BY GORDON LIGHTFOOT TO THIS ENTRY. THE SONG IS ONE OF MY ALLTIME FAVORITE SONGS. LIGHTFOOT IS AN AMAZING SONGWRITER. WHEN ASKED WHAT THE SONG WAS ABOUT GORDON LIGHTFOOT IS QUOTED AS SAYING....

 "All it is, is a thought about a situation where someone is wondering what his loved one is doing at the moment. He doesn't quite know where she is. He's not ready to give up on her, either, and that's about all I got to say about that."

SO WHEN ITS PUT IN THAT CONTEXT. IT KINDA FITS.....
ALSO I HAD TO START MODERATING THIS BLOG COMMENTS BECAUSE A GROUP OF LOW LIFE INBREDS STARTED ATTACKING MEGAN'S CHARACTER. NOW I KNOW NONE OF YOU ARE MAN ENOUGH TO SAY ANYTHING LIKE THAT IN PERSON. YOU FEEL TOUGH ON YOUR KEYBOARDS. THAT'S FINE. OH AND MSDOXMA, NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU CONTINUE TO TRY AND COMMENT. I'M NOT PUBLISHING IT BITCH. YOU'D THINK AFTER LIKE THE 8TH TIME YOU'D STOP TRYING. YOU'D ALSO THINK YOU'D HAVE BETTER THINGS …

UPDATE: Dorothy Jane Scott

Part One

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 Dorot…

UNSOLVED MYSTERIES SEGMENT



October 12, 2016

I would first like to state that I have tried contacting Suzanne (Her sister) twice on two separate occasions and I have not heard back from her. I respect that she did not wish to speak with me. From what I have read there has been a lot of  trolling with internet assholes regarding the case. As well as with the Sitcoms Online board (Which at times has some good info on it but is maligned by a lot of trolls. (Wiseguy182) I would just like to say that I do not mean any ill will towards the family in writing this blog entry. I do not intentionally wish to disparage any ones character regarding this blog entry either. My heart goes out to the family of Tammy Lynn Leppert. This case has long since been of interest to me. Part One of this entry will deal with the disappearance. Part Two will deal with my opinion and analysis of the case. 
UPDATE:I HAVE HEARD BACK FROM SUZANNE. SHE IS BATTLING SOME HEALTH ISSUES. WHICH IS WHY IT TOOK SOME TIME FOR H…

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. I dedicated the song SPIRIT IN THE SKY to this case. Because I know that's where Stephen is....
