Missing Persons Shrine

A man walking through he woods in Long Island found what he thought to be a murderer’s shrine. There were dozens of missing persons flyers posted on trees from actual missing persons cases all across the country.

The man, James Rankin, started recording a video of what he found.
“I might die,” Rankin warns his audience. “What the f–k is going on in here?”

He contacted the police and the police told him that they were Halloween decorations set up by someone living nearby. Rankin refuses to believe that and says the conditions seem to suggest that this has been there for months.

Rankin said the detective he spoke to watched the videos, and agree that the situation is “creepy, if not suspicious,” and that authorities would be investigating.

Maura Murray, a 21-year-old nursing student from new Hampshire, crashed her car on Route 112 in February of 2004, and has never been seen since.  On the day of her disappearance, Murray had emailed professors at her university to inform them that she would be taking the week off due to a family emergency, although it later transpired that no such emergency had taken place.  Early that evening, after withdrawing money from her bank account and buying alcohol at a nearby liquor store, Murray crashed her car into a tree.  A bus driver approached her to ask if she needed any help, but she told him not to inform the police and assured him that she had already called AAA, although there is no record of any such call being made.  When police arrived at the scene around 45 minutes later, Murray was nowhere to be found.

In the 12 years since, few leads have been found as to Murray’s whereabouts, despite the involvement of the FBI and extensive searches of both ground and air.  The day before the 8th anniversary of her disappearance, a video was uploaded to YouTube by user ‘112dirtbag’, of a sinister looking man laughing maniacally into the camera for just over a minute.  The final frame of the bizarre video simply reads ‘Happy Anniversary’. Another video from the same user shows a ticket for a nearby ski resort dated 2 days after Murray’s disappearance.  Murray’s father had publicly theorised that she had probably been kidnapped by ‘some dirtbag on Route 112’.  Despite being called in for questioning, there was no evidence to arrest the man in question, and Murray’s whereabouts remain a mystery.

A Red Sun Rises


Sneak Peek:

[…] drying sweat from my skin and despite the heat it was beautiful. Perfect summer weather with a sky so blue that it made my heart soar.

I was torn between a strange sort of optimism – bad things didn’t happen on days like this, with the chattering of birds in the trees and sunshine sparkling off windshields. Music faint but distinct, drifting in from Bourbon and Dauphine – and the disquieting sense that whoever was making off with all these people were working off some sort of list.

Espinosa had given me exactly what I needed to know.

A pattern meant a preference. It wasn’t random …

“Windows” Missing Persons

50 years ago in Adelaide, Australia, Jane, Arnna and Grant Beaumont took the 5 minute bus ride for a morning at the beach.  Aged just 9, 7 and 4, the 3 young siblings were never seen again.  Several witnesses had seen the children at the beach, with some noting the presence of a tall, blond man, who at one pointed joined the Beaumonts to play with them.  Jane, the eldest child, later bought some food from a nearby shop with a £1 note, despite having only left the house with enough money for the bus fare.  Stranger still, during the investigation, the children’s mother mentioned Arnna telling her that Jane had ‘got a boyfriend down at the beach’.  Thinking the 7-year-old simply meant a playmate, Mrs Beaumont had taken no notice.  After vast media attention, paranormal investigations, and even letters offering the children’s safe return (these later turned out to be a teenage prank), no trace of the Beaumonts or any of their belongings has ever been found.

Their disappearance is considered a pivotal event in Australian history, credited with changing the way parents monitored their families, and altering the perception of the local community as a safe and secure place for kids.  Now aged 88 and 90, the Beaumont’s parents will likely die never knowing what became of their 3 young children.

“Runaway Train” is a popular song by American rock band Soul Asylum. Besides its indisputable success among charts worldwide, there’s a rather gloomy story behind  its music video. During the chorus, pictures of missing teenagers and children are displayed, along with their names and the date they went missing. Different versions of the video were made, each with different missing persons being featured, depending on the country. All in all, a total of 36 persons where featured in the videos.

The Australian version showed several young backpackers. It was later found out that a good few of them had been murdered by Ivan Milat, an Australian serial killer who was active from 1989-1992. He became known as “the Backpacker Murderer”. Vicky Hamilton and Dinah McNicol, who were featured in the U.K. version, went missing in 1991. In 2007, their buried remains were found in the back garden of Scottish serial killer Peter Tobin. There were theories that Tobin could have been “Bible John”, a serial killer whose identity is unknown to this day, as Tobin’s known movements and his M.O. suggested his involvement in the case. What also made him a suspect was the fact that Tobin was already in his 60s when he killed his first victim, which is unusual, as well as the way he hid the body and evaded capture, which suggested he was experienced.

The body of 14-year old Curtis Huntzinger was found in 2008. He was found to be murdered by Stephen Hash, a family acquaintance. Curtis had disappeared in May 1990, shortly after he reportedly told his parents that Hash had molested him.
Thomas Dean Gibson, age 2, disappeared from Glendale, Oregon, in 1991. His picture was featured in at the end of all three U.S. versions of the music video. His father, former Douglas County deputy sheriff Larry Gibson, was convicted of second degree manslaughter in 1995. He was released in 1996 and insists on his innocence. Thomas’ body was never found.

More than twenty years after the release of “Runaway Train”, 26 teenagers and children have been reported to be reunited with their families in the years after being featured in the video. The rest of them are still missing or reportedly dead. You can watch it here.
