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.

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 Joshua Wayne Crawford

On July 2, 2003, Joshua Wayne Crawford was found murdered in his Frederick apartment on his 21st birthday.....The crime remains unsolved.Authors Note- I have conversed at lengths with Joshua's mother Terry Scalera Horman. I cannot imagine how she must feel losing her son in the manner in which she did. This is a very solvable case. Even after all these years. I would first like to apologize to Terry for it taking so long for this post. It has been some time between posts mostly due to situations out of my control. I would like to point out Terri only discussed the basics of the case with me. Only the things that have been already covered in the media as she respects this is still an active investigation. Here we go.
