  • Caleb Diehl was an 18 year old senior from small town Texas. When he suddenly went missing, in 2015, all clues pointed to a family friend named Ricky Howard but nothing could be proven or linked. Until 2 brave young men stepped forward and exposed Ricky for the abusive, sexual predator that he really was. Although Ricky will likely be spending the rest of life behind bars for the crimes he committed against Caleb and the other young men, Caleb is still missing. He is believed to be deceased but this family may never know for sure. Join us in the closet this week for the frustrating case of Caleb Diehl.   
    *As of 2021, Caleb Ray Diehl would be 24 years old. He is described as 6’2” tall and 145 lbs with blonde hair and blue eyes. If you have any information on his disappearance please contact the Nocona Police Department at 940-825-3281.

  • Israel Keyes is an American serial killer, rapist, arsonist, burglar, bank robber. He was officially charged with the murders of Samantha Koenig and Bill and Lorraine Currier but authorities suspect him to be responsible for 11 murders, and possibly upwards of 30, as well as multiple robberies, sexual assaults, bank robberies, and arsons. His reign of terror during the late 90's and 2000's still haunts us today. He was calculated and completed suicide in prison before revealing the identities and details of additional victims and crimes.

  • You voted and we listened! Join us in the closet this week for a special double episode while Cristy and Beth both share cases of murder-suicides. 
    Mental Illness is a terrible affliction so many people deal with on a daily basis.  An entire family perished due to mental illness.  Two young men thought the only solution to their problems was to take the lives of their family and then take their own lives.
    The Hart Family was seemingly beautiful and happy to everyone on social media. With matriarchs Jenn and Sarah and 6 adopted children, the family was a picture of how wonderful being a non-traditional family could be. Or so everyone thought. It wasn't until their SUV was found at the bottom of a cliff, and all 8 of them were declared dead, that we all learned the actual truth.
