Some lovely true crime podcasters have set up a fundraiser for the Charley Project, their idea but with my blessing. I am more grateful for this than I can say.
There is a GoFundMe set up here. They will also be holding an interactive podcast-a-thon on February 20; more information about that is here.
This is fantastic news. You deserve all the credit those of us are willing to give. Thank you.
Way OT, but I have to share this:
Earlier today I was getting caught up on some shows (all true crime, of course) that I had recorded but not yet watched. One was about serial killer Israel Keyes. At one point they mentioned a few parts of the country he’d been in and when, because they’re looking for the rest of his victims. One date/place they talked about briefly was Napa Valley in 2007…they knew he’d rented a kayak there, etc. It was the only one I jotted down to remember, and came here to Charley to look up MPs from May 2007.
I could not believe what I saw. Go to the chronological database here on Charley, and look at the names of the back-to-back Charley listings for 5/14/07 and 5/16/07.
Just…insane, what are the odds of that? How many case files are on Charley? And that one month and one year, and the only reason I looked for it was from this Tv episode about this specific killer.
I’m clueless what we are looking for?? I saw 2 names, but I’m not connecting the dots.
One of them has the last name Israel and one of them has the last name Keyes. I think she’s just pointing out it’s a weird coincedence.
OT, mostly, but related to a fundraiser…this site has current pics of Isabella Miller and Lisa Miller (it’s a site of one of the people convicted in the abduction, scroll down a bit)
According to this site Lisa Miller has turned herself in to US authorities on the kidnapping charges: https://world.wng.org/2021/02/lisa_miller_mother_in_kidnapping_case_in_us_custody
Has anyone else read Jon Billman’s book “The Cold Vanish: Seeking the Missing in North America’s Wildlands”?
If so, what did you think?
Never heard of it.
Mostly, it’s about the search for Jacob Randall Gray, but Billman also writes about Amy Bechtel and a few other people. Interesting and well-written read!
Put it on my wishlist.
