    In the early morning hours of September 27th, 2015, a fight broke out at a party at 4136 Shady Avenue in Munhall Pennsylvania, a working class community in Alleghany County. This fight ended with one of it’s guests, 23 year old Codi Joyce, becoming unresponsive and being rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Although it was understood that Codi had been in a fight with four other people at that party, his death was not investigated as a murder, until his autopsy report showed that he had died from asphixiation due to compression of the neck sustained during a physical altercation with multiple individuals, and the ME ruled Codi’s manner of death as a homicide. That was 2015, and yet today, in 2021, no one has been arrested for this murder, and the question we need to answer today is why.

  • It is a case that has stumped and enraged millions of people around the world. Since 17 year old Kendrick Johnson was found dead, in a rolled up gym mat, the question has remained; was this a tragic accident, or a well orchestrated and quickly hidden murder. Law enforcement has ruled Kendrick’s death an accident, his family have never wavered from their opinion that Kendrick was the victim of foul play. And now, almost a decade after the case was closed, authorities are reopening the case and examining possible new evidence. Today, we will discuss the case, go over the evidence, old and new, and hopefully find ourselves one step closer to the answer.

  • On April 10th 2021, thirty year old Lilliana Carillo of Reseda California killed her three young children, three year old Joanna, two year old Terry, and six month old Sierra. They were discovered by their grandmother at around 9:30 in the morning, but Lilliana was nowhere to be found, she had already fled the scene. Two of the children showed signs of being drowned, and all three had injuries that indicated they had been bludgeoned. She would later be apprehended and arrested, and once she was in custody Liliana would not deny that her children had died at her hands, but the reasons she gave for why she did this have turned this case into a convoluted maze that has raised many questions about mental health and the role of the system in protecting children from those they should be able to trust the most, their parents.

  • On June 4th 2019, the body of 19 year old Cynthia Hoffman was found in a creek in Thunderbird Falls park located in Anchorage Alaska. Her feet had been duct taped together, and she had been shot in the back of the head. Cynthia had been reported missing by her father, Timothy Hoffman the day before, and he had told the Anchorage Police Department that his daughter had gone out with her best friend on June 2nd and not returned. He also told him that Cynthia had a learning disability and her brain only functioned at the level of a 12 year old. When you think of the kind of person who would do this to a young and trusting girl like Cynthia, you think of someone evil, a stranger most likely, since no one who knew Cynthia could have ever done this to her, but this wasn’t a stranger who had done this, it was a person that Cynthia considered to be her best friend.

  • It was just before dawn on April 7th 1994 at the Holly Park apartment complex in Arlington Texas when the residents of one of the buildings were evacuated due to a blazing fire that had started in one of the units. It was a three alarm blaze that damaged eight units and left twenty people displaced, but as the tenants stood outside, huddling together and watching the flames engulf their home, they noticed that someone was missing. 19 year old Missy Grubaugh was not standing amongst them, but her neighbors saw her car in the parking lot. The fire department was able to get the fire under control within an hour so they could locate the source, but they did not anticipate what they would walk in on. Missy was found laying on her bed, naked, and stabbed multiple times through the heart, and police believed that whoever had killed her had started the blaze to cover their tracks and to destroy evidence. In today’s episode we will discuss what happened to Missy, who was just days away from her 20th birthday, and we will find out who did this to her, and why.

    On December 16th, 1995, the body of 17 year old Krystal Beslanowitch was found along the Provo River near Midway, a mountain town 38 miles southeast of Salt Lake City Utah. She was found lying face down and completely naked, surrounded by large river rocks which were covered in blood. She had been beaten savagely to the point where she was unrecognizable, and police knew that whoever had murdered Krystal had done so with a lot of rage, utilizing one of the river rocks lying nearby to hit Krystal in her head and face at least a dozen times. Today on Crime Weekly we are going to discuss this case, and how it went cold for over two decades before improved technology and a dedicated police force were able to finally uncover who killed Krystal Beslanowitch.

  • Faith Hedgepeth was born on September 26th 1992 in Warren County North Carolina. She was part of the Haliwa Saponi Native American tribe and her parents Roland and Connie Hegepeth whose parents divorced only a few months after she was born. Her father Roland moved to Hickory North Carolina, a four hour drive away, and Faith remained with her mother and sister Roland who was eighteen years older than Faith and who felt as if she was a second mother to her baby sister. In high school Faith was very active, actively participating in many clubs and organizations as well as cheerleading, and she was also an honor student which earned her the Gates Millenium Scholarship, a program meant to promote academic excellence and provide the opportunity for outstanding minority students with significant financial need to reach their highest potential. Faith was accepted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and she and her family had high hopes for her future. Faith knew she wanted to help people, especially children, by becoming a pediatrician or a teacher, and once she completed college she would become the first member of her family to hold a college degree. Faith had her whole life in front of her, and with her intelligence, excellent people skills and big heart, she would make a positive impact on the world. But on September 6th 2012, Faith’s bright light was extinguished. She was found beaten to death in the off campus apartment she shared with her friend, Karina Rosario. Faith was naked from the waist down, her shirt had been pulled over her head, and next to her a hastily scrawled note on a fast food bag was found. The note said quote, “I’m not stupid bitch. Jealous”. Since that day, Chapel Hill police have been tirelessly trying to find the person or persons who brutally murdered Faith Hedgepeth, who was just weeks away from her twentieth birthday. To her family Faith symbolized love and hope, to her friends she was a constant source of positive energy and fun, and the question still lingers today. Who killed Faith Hedgepeth, and why?

  • On November 19th 1988 two nine year old girls happily rode their scooters to the Rainbow Market on Mission Blvd in Hayward California. It was a beautiful fall morning, like many others in the Bay area, it was the weekend before Thanksgiving and the two friends were excited to be spending time together, and riding away on their own for the first time without a parent in tow. The market wasn’t far, just two blocks away from their homes, and they were feeling all grown up when they coasted into the parking lot and left their scooters outside the front door before going in and purchasing two Mountain Dew’s, two sticks of beef jerky, and two cherry flavored taffys. The two girls were so preoccupied chatting with each other as they left the market, they began to walk home, completely forgetting that they had ridden their scooters there. They hadn’t gotten far before they remembered, and ran back laughing, only to find that one of the scooters was missing. These two little girls were Michaela Garecht and her best friend, Trina Rodriguez, and within moments of finding one of the scooters was gone, nine year old Michaela would be snatched away from her friend, her parents, her happy and safe life, and she would never be seen again.
