Some recommended reading for you

I’ve just updated their cases so you can read about the sordid story of missing stepdad and stepdaughter Gary McCullough and Liehnia Chapin on Charley.

However, I highly recommend you check you the really wonderful two-part series on the case: After 10 years missing, is Lena Chapin still alive? and Cover-up, confession and what remains of Lena Chapin.

It is an absolutely awful and somewhat convoluted tale, and an excellent piece of investigative reporting on the part of the Salem News. Good job, guys!

Poor Lena. Poor Gary. I had kind of a deer-in-the-headlights feeling as I read what what down.

      I knew she had little kids and I knew about the meds but didn’t know about the pacemaker. Duly noted.

    The worst thing about this terrible tale is that Lena’s mother won. She won. She got away with 2 murders, married again, protected by most of her children, and now raising Colter as her own. It’s cases like this that make me hope that karma is real and will be coming for her.

      I know, it’s absolutely awful. There is no justice in this case. And Colter would be 13 or so now, reaching that difficult adolescent stage. I hope he makes it out alive.

      You have to wonder just how charming this witch is, that she convinced FIVE men to marry her.

      How I’d love to see this case featured on an episode of Small Town Murders someday. But for that you need a conviction.
