Flashback Friday: The Westerfield Boys

July 3, 2015

This week’s Flashback Friday case is actually two people who disappeared together: Alan Westerfield, seven, and his brother Terry, eleven, last seen at a movie theater in Fayetteville, North Carolina on September 12, 1964. That’s over fifty years ago.

The prime suspect in the brothers’ disappearances appears to be their stepfather, Carl Bock, but I’m not sure he’s even still alive anymore. If he is he’d be in his nineties. I tried Googling “Carl Bock Wisconsin” (the last state I know he was living in) and didn’t find any obituaries, but that doesn’t mean much. Alan and Terry’s biological father committed suicide in 1978, according to this article, in part because of his depression over his sons’ disappearances.

Sad story all around. But they all are.

Aw shucks, I couldn’t resist

June 27, 2015

Having completed my Charley updates today, and not having much else to do, I found myself making more YouTube videos. Even though I promised to do only two a week, I wound up doing six more:
Charles Howard Bolter

Michael James Gaughan

Alexis Geraldo Hernandez

Rebeca Gabriela Nuno

Deborah Ann Quimby

Kristi Lynn Vorak

YouTube Saturday: Dontray Hunter and Rose Mallen

June 27, 2015

This week’s YouTube videos are for Rose Mary Mallen, missing from California since 2002, and Dontray Miquel Hunter, missing from Wisconsin since in 1977. I have very little on either of them, especially Dontray.

I don’t know why I can’t get Dontray’s actual photograph to show up in the YouTube thumbnail image. It will only let me show his AP for some reason.

  1. Kayla May Berg
  2. Brittanee Marie Drexel
  3. Beverly Lynn England
  4. Corrine Leanne Erstad
  5. Latoya Renee Grissom

Flashback Friday: Jason Townsend

June 19, 2015

This week’s Flashback Friday case is Jason Edward Thornton Townsend, missing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida since May 20, 1980. He was three. It’s pretty obvious what happened to Jason, but there’s been no trace of him since 1980. Beyond that I don’t have much to say, other than that is a really awful case.

Another anniversary

June 13, 2015

The aforementioned Kelly Murphy brought this to my attention: Elizabeth Gill vanished fifty years ago today. This appears to be a case of stranger abduction. Elizabeth could well be alive today, a middle-aged woman, maybe a mother, perhaps even a grandmother by now, who doesn’t know who she really is.

Make-a-List Monday: Cauliflower ear

June 8, 2015

Even shorter than last week’s list: this is a list of MPs with the deformity known as cauliflower ear.

  1. Tyler Jennings Inman
  2. Donald Kluge

YouTube Saturday: Ethel Atwell and Clark Toshiro Handa

June 6, 2015

I made videos for Clark Handa and Ethel Atwell.

(Okay, I just realized I said Clark was four when he disappeared. He was actually three and a half. I had to do the narration over again and post a whole new video for it. Whoopsie. This is what happens you don’t pay attention to details.)

Yeah, okay, I did do one more video

June 4, 2015

I promised I’d only do two a week on Saturdays only but I did post one. This case is so awful, and it never got much publicity, just a few articles in the local papers and nothing at all since 1977. I felt obliged to profile it.
