"I THINK THE ANSWERS ARE THERE. [BAXTER SPRINGS] ITS GETTING PEOPLE TO COME FORWARD."


KBI AGENT LARRY THOMAS
NOVEMBER 25TH 1998

"I had woke up late that morning and forgot my lunch, so I called her around 8:30 or 9 a.m. so she could bring me my lunch,” he said.


JUSTIN JUDD




DETAILS OF MURDER:


 On May 11th, 1992 Justin Judd left home in the early morning hours headed to work. He worked for a Chemicals Plant in nearby Riverton, Kansas. (Worked the 6:30-2:30pm shift) He called home between 9 and 930am because he had forgot his lunch and needed his new wife Jennifer to bring it by. There was no answer.  She had talked to a friend at 9:52 am that day.  (So I assume he left a message?) Apparently she left the house on her way to the tanning salon. Law Enforcement believes she then remembered that she needed to return a rental video and headed back to the couples duplex to retrieve it. Justin's lunch was in the passenger side of Jennifer's car. At some point during her quick return home. She encountered someone. And was stabbed to death with a knife in her kitchen. Law Enforcement believes she was murdered around 10:30am. Later that day, Shortly after 2:30pm. (About 2:45pm) Justin returned home along with a friend of his who happened to be the best man at Jennifer and his wedding. His name is Charles Craig Chance. (Chuck Chance) They encountered Jennifer's lifeless body. According to her father. In the months leading up to her murder Jennifer was scared of someone. She didn't want to be left alone at the convenience store she worked at in Picher, Oklahoma. She wanted someone to follow her home. Also, She told a friend that shortly before her murder a person stood outside her duplex and pounded on the door. (Another article states a doorknob was jiggled. Big difference.) She was so scared that she hid behind a couch in her home until they went away. (Were the police called? If not why?) An interesting tidbit is this was the first time she was left home alone since they were married. They were married 9 days prior to her murder. (Shades of Leigh Occhi) Jennifer's keys were found on the living room floor. She was not bound and there was no evidence of sexual assault.  She had been beaten by fist or with a heavy object about her body. The knife handle was broken off during the attack. It was never located. The knife blade was still embedded in Jennifer's lifeless body. She had been stabbed 6 times in the chest, 3 times in her back and her neck was swollen. LE believes she may have been put in some kind of a chokehold. She had defensive wounds to her hands. And her body was found face up. Meaning its likely she was taken by surprise from behind and stabbed in the back in the beginning of the attack. And then the attack ended while on her back. Otherwise it would be diffucult (Not impossible) to explain the defensive wounds on the hands. That would lead me to believe that she was still alive after she incurred the stab wounds to her back. So its probable based on what we know that she entered the duplex and was placed in a chokehold with one arm to control her. (Using both hands or one forearm)And was taken to the kitchen where the killer got a knife and proceeded to murder Jennifer. Justin Judd later stated he believes someone was enfatuated with his wife and that the wedding sent him into a jealous rage. LE has stated a friend of Justin was questioned but never arrested. The reason being that the evidence at the crime scene didn't positively link him to the murder. That friend was Chuck Chance. I've read he was questioned for 16 hrs by LE and released. Justin Judd was cleared if any involvement. Apparently from what I read the KBI is "sold" on Chance being the killer of Jennifer. 




Excerpts Taken from THIS ARTICLE 



Jennifer Judd had been beaten about her body with a fist or heavy object and stabbed nine times - six times in the chest and three times in the back. The attack was done by “someone who hated or despised this lady,” according to the medical examiner’s report.



Mark Garrett, a relative of Jennifer Judd and a private investigator who owned Tulsa-based Cold Case Investigations at the time of her death, tried desperately to find that person.
Garrett spent hours gathering voluntary statements from every witness he could round up. He tracked down the timesheet of one person who was absent from the workplace during what he believed to be a key window of time.

Picher did you say? And Jennifer was afraid of being alone at night while working at the convenience store.....


"I know she was scared because she wanted somebody down at the Picher Express with her late at night, and she wanted someone to follow her home when she got off, which I did," her father said.


Joplin Globe, May 2006



He said he followed her home three nights. He asked her whom she feared and why, but she simply responded that she wasn't familiar with Picher and wasn't comfortable being alone in the store at night or going home.

"The poor girl was scared to death of something or someone," her father said.

He nevertheless believes it is more likely that she was killed by someone she knew and trusted than a stalking stranger she had never seen previously.


Pretty Sure this is the Gas Station she worked at in 92. (However I could be wrong)
UPDATE: Turns out it wasn't ;)



JEREMY JONES: SERIAL KILLER ****WARNING TANGENT ALERT****



OK, This sack of shit at one time confessed to killing Jennifer Judd. Then recanted the confession. He said that they were lovers......Yeah.....Sure. The only lover he has is BUBBA. Anyways, He once lived next door to Justin Judd. He went to school with Justin as well. LE has tried to link him to other unsolved murders. You can read more about the dipshit HERE. He is currently awaiting execution on death row. I dunno why. Gimme a gun with a single round in it and Id do it for free. There is no evidence that he ever knew Jennifer. He just made it up. And get a load of that selfie below. WTF! You can read more about this pile of shit in the news articles below. I do not believe him to be involved. And neither does Jennifer's family. 





Love the sideways hat GIMP. "Straight Thuggin It" right into the cell for Bubba.

MY THOUGHTS

Ok, So from what little I was able to read online. LE is pretty sure Chuck Chance is the guilty party. I've read all kinds of reasons as to why. One said his story kept changing. I dunno what story that would be. He came to the residence with Justin and found the body. Unless its related to where Chance was at a certain time. It seems pretty clear that family relative and Private Investigator Mark Garrett has his sights set on Chuck Chance as well. And it seems that there are atleast a group of people who know about the murder and who is responsible. Atleast according to Jennifer's sister. Obvious to me its a rage killing. Someone was very upset with her. Almost like a jilted lover. If I can't have you nobody can kinda thing. She was stabbed in and around her heart also. Almost like the person wanted to give her a broken heart too. I have a few questions I wish I could get answered. Did Jennifer ever date Chuck Chance? This seems more than a crush gone bad. Where did Chuck Chance work at the time? Was it at the plant with Justin or somewhere else? What was the car description that Garret was able to obtain and did Chance drive a similar car? What evidence was collected from the crime scene? Also, If we are to believe things went how LE thinks they did. With her leaving and returning. It means that Chance or the Killer was staking out the duplex and waited for her to leave to gain entry. Or they showed up and entered the duplex just as Jennifer left and obviously were surprised when she returned. If that is the case then the reason they were originally there wasn't to kill Jennifer. They had ample opportunity right after Justin left for work. And up until she left to go tanning. Also, If Justin wasn't able to get ahold of his wife when he called. How did she know to bring the lunch to him? The reason we know this is that a lunch was packed in the car. She was going to deliver it presumably on the way to go tanning. There was an angle involving Jennifer being involved in drugs somehow. And it doesn't fit. Her family stated she never used drugs. And Justin has never came out and stated she did either. There is ALOT more out there that even the people in the area probably know that hasn't been reported.  I'd love to know more. I need more to convince me that Chance is guilty tho. If LE is so sure. THEN DO SOMETHING. The way this woman was murdered and the length of time its been since is rediculous.

  1. I'm curious as to why you think Justin did not speak to her on the phone? The attacker did not come with a weapon he used a knife from the kitchen. He saw opportunity and took it. I do agree she knew the person who killed her. That person obviously recognized that Justin's vehicle was not there at the time so she was alone. He may have asked to use the phone and once inside the fight began. There is no DNA. She wasn't even given the chance to scratch. Nothing on her ring either. She did not date Chuck. She loved Justin very much. I read her love letters she wrote to him.

    1. It's not a matter of THINKING he didn't speak to her on the phone. That was what was reported. Read the articles. Later I found out there were two calls placed. The first one got through and she said she would bring his lunch to him. When she did not arrive he tried calling her a second time. That call did not get answered. How do you know there was no DNA? How do you know she was not given the chance to scratch? How do you know there was nothing on her ring? I never stated she dated Chuck Chance. I never stated she didn't love Justin. Read the update.

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.

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....
