anonymous asked:

Two things: do you think Johnny Gosch was murdered? and can you pretty please reblog your crime documentary masterpost? Please and thank you :)

There’s no doubt in my mind that Johnny was still alive for a prolonged period - from the $1 note with his signature to the reported sighting in Tulsa where he was seen running away from two men shouting “help me, I’m Johnny Gosch” before they caught him and dragged him away.

However, I don’t believe he visited his mother that night. I think she made that up to keep his name in the media and keep people searching for him and to add to the conspiracy theory surrounding the Franklin Community Federal Credit Union. If he did return, he would have gone to the home he grew up in, where his father still lived, not his mother’s new apartment, surely. I certainly believe there is a cover-up to a shocking magnitude.

I have a few documentary master posts. They’re in here:

Use these videos as a springboard for learning more! There’s a lot of ins and outs in this subject, and it’s tricky to find authentic and accurate information about Geisha. Always think critically and have fun!
