Walker Family Murder

In 1959, the Walker family was getting ready to spend their second Christmas together as a family of four. At around 3:30 PM on December 19, 24-year-old Christine pulled into the family farm after running a few errands. It was later discovered that she hadn’t parked in her normal spot because there had probably been a second car there, someone whom Christine knew. Not suspecting a thing, she opened the door and let him into the house. Once inside, he raped the mother of two before shooting her twice in the head.

Cliff and the two toddlers, Jimmie and Debbie, arrived at the house at about 4:35. As soon as Cliff walked in the door, he was shot in the head. The killer then shot Jimmie in the head before turning his gun on Debbie. He fired his last bullet at her, but when that didn’t kill her he was forced to improvise. He carried the toddler into the bathroom and drowned her in the bathtub. Afterward, he left the bodies in the house and left the scene. Their bodies were found by Cliff’s hunting buddy the next morning. The killer left behind plenty of clues, including a thumbprint on the bathtub, a bloody cowboy boot, and cellophane from a cigarette packet, but none of these helped the police in the investigation.

There have been 587 suspects in the case over the years. They include Perry Smith and Dick Hickock, who murdered the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas, a crime which became the subject of Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. But when Smith’s and Hickock’s bodies were exhumed in 2012, they could not find a match between their DNA and the samples from the Walker farm. The bloody mystery remains unsolved to this day.

Bessie Love Cabin

ADDRESS:

2401 Laurel Canyon Boulevard
Los Angeles, California 90046

MAP

LOCATION:

The Bessie Love cabin can be found toward the top of the rugged Laurel Canyon, built on a lot back away from the road on Lookout Mountain, which has a glorious view of the Los Angeles basin.

HISTORY

Around 1918, the Laurel Canyon area had a rustic, countryside atmosphere, yet was close to the city. A development of cabins/bungalows were built on a group of lots, collectively called Bungalow Land. A series of walkways and gardens tied all the bungalows, both up and down the hills, and in-between, together as a community, popular with the well-to-do Hollywood folk.

DESCRIPTION:

The cabin is one story, with one bedroom, a nice living room, a bathroom and a kitchen, all perfect for a single person. It has heavy, wooden doors.

HISTORY OF MANIFESTATIONS:

Back in the mid 1800s, soon after California became a state, the Laurel Canyon area was the favorite hideout of the Mexican Robin Hood, Tiburcio Vasquez, who liked to steal from the new landowners who were awarded the land taken from the former Mexican farmers and ranchers. Vasquez found the hidden caves in the area great places to hide his loot. Two fortune hunters came, looking for some of Vasquez's ill-gotten gold. Unfortunately, they were caught by Vasquez, and killed on the land that the cabin was built on; the same cabin which screen actress Bessie Love bought as her first home.

MANIFESTATIONS:

Two ghosts haunt the property and cabin, still looking for Vasquez's gold.

  1. In 1918, when she was barely 20 years old, Bessie Love was making a great living in Hollywood in silent movies and she eagerly bought her first home, this lovely cabin in this beautifully rugged setting. She discovered that she wasn't alone.

    1. There were a variety of odd occurrences that she at first tried to ignore or explain away. She would hear a low moaning sound, men's voices, experience electrical problems, doors would open and close by themselves, lights would turn themselves on and off, and there were definite cold spots felt in the living room, despite what the weather was like outside.

    2. One night, when one of Bessie's friends was sleeping in a makeshift bed in the living room, she awoke to the sound of a man's voice. The living room was fully lit by the full moon. She at first saw nothing. After hearing a voice once again, she was frightened when she saw a transparent man walk through a wall into the living room After adjusting his cowboy hat, he continued through the living room and went into the kitchen, not seeming to notice the now terrified guest. The scared guest ran into Bessie's bedroom, where they stayed together for the night.

  2. Various people made the cabin their home until the 1980s. In 1984 or so, remodeling the cabin had begun but was abandoned for some unknown reason, and the cabin was vacant for nearly 10 years, until a film electrician moved into the place in 1993. 
     

    1. During the week that he was moving into the cabin, he and his friend left the big, heavy wooden front door open, as the weather was hot and still. The ancient door had a difficult lock on it that had to be turned in just the right manner to lock or unlock the door. On one occasion, the heavy door slowly closed and locked itself, temporarily locking out the electrician. In another instance, during that same week, the door once again slowly closed, and not only was the door locked again, but the deadbolt lock was also turned as well!
       
    2. As he continued to live there, the electrician experienced unexplainable electrical and power problems in the cabin, which no one else in the community had experienced. Cold spots could be again felt in the living room. His fully charged cell phone wouldn't work as long as he was on the property, though in theory he was supposed to have cell coverage

    the roman numerals XCI on the right side of her chest.
  • Medical Conditions: Kelsie may be in need of medical 
    attention. 
    She was 8 weeks pregnant at the time of her disappearance.
  • Case Number: 13-2755

     


Details of Disappearance
Kelsie Schelling was last seen on February 4, 2013, in Pueblo, Colorado. She had just learned she was pregnant and had driven from her home in Denver to Pueblo to see her boyfriend, Donthe Lucas, when she vanished. The last text message Kelsie ever sent was to Donthe Lucas at 12:32 in the morning on February 5, 2013 asking where he was and "complaining that she had been waiting for over an hour for him."

Video released by the Pueblo Police Department shows a person driving Kelsie's car out of the Walmart parking lot. A few days later, her vehicle was found in the parking lot of St. Mary-Corwin Hospital in Pueblo. Surveillance footage showed the car had been parked there since February 7. Schelling’s phone records showed that she was in Pueblo until at least February 7. That’s when police said the cell phone battery died. It has not been turned on since then.

Investigators say Donthe Lucas was arrested a short time later, after using her bank card. The charges were later dropped as was not uncommon that she had given him permission in the past to use the card. Foul play is suspected.

Schelling parents — Doug Schelling and Laura Saxton — in 2015 filed a U.S. District Court suit alleging police obstructed the investigation of her disappearance and lied to them about evidence. The suit was filed against police and Lucas. The suit also contends Lucas caused Kelsie Schelling’s death.

  • Missing Since: August 3, 2013 from Upper Darby, Delaware County, Pennsylvania
  • Classification: Endangered Missing
  • Date Of Birth: January 8, 2013
  • Age: 7 months
  • Height: 2'1"
  • Weight: 12 lbs
  • Hair Color: Brown
  • Eye Color: Brown
  • Race: Black
  • Gender: Male
  • DNA: Available
  • Case Number: 13-31793
  • NCMEC Number: 1251042

     

     

     


Details of Disappearance
Hamza was last seen on August 3, 2013. Hamza has been missing and presumed dead since his mother's boyfriend, Ummad Rushdi, 30, of Windsor, York County, admitted killing the baby to his brother and police.

Ali was reported missing from Rushdi’s parents’ home in Upper Darby by his mother, Zainab Gaal, 20, on August 4. Ummad Rushdi told her he could kill the child and get away with murder. Gaal said she awoke around 10 a.m. that morning to find Rushdi and her son missing. She was initially told by Rushdi’s family that he had taken the baby to the park, but later was told he was taking her son to Maine.

Police have said Gaal and Ummad Rushdi were involved in a rocky relationship; Rushdi felt the baby was getting in the way. When the 20-year-old woman threatened to leave, Rushdi would strike out at her, causing her to fear for her and her child’s safety.

Ummad Rushdi told police the baby was crying the night of August 3 so he brought him upstairs and shook him to quiet him. But the baby stopped breathing. He wrapped the baby in a sheet and took him to York, where he put him under a pile of sticks. He later went back and got the baby’s body, then buried him elsewhere.

Rushdi’s brother’s car was located off of Route 441 in Lancaster County, down an access road that leads to a power plant. The four-door sedan had been abandoned after it became stuck on a log. A pillowcase that was later identified as having come from Rushdi’s York County home was located near the car by a bloodhound searching for signs of decomposition. The dog also hit on a pile of brush not far from where the car was located.

Extensive searches in three counties have failed to locate the baby’s remains. Upper Darby police charged Rushdi with first-degree murder even though the body had not been located. Foul play is suspected.

Jonestown Massacre

This horrific tale of mass suicide was carried out by the followers of the People’s Temple – a cult born in the 1950’s. The People’s Temple was known as a sanctuary against racial and social inequality prevalent at the time. The Jonestown Massacre was the biggest single mass suicide in modern history.

Jim Jones, the charismatic cult leader of the People’s Temple, ordered his loyal followers to drink a cocktail mixed with deadly cyanide and sedatives. Jones, as heartless as he was, did not even spare the lives of the 300 children living in the community.

The People’s Temple – Making of Cult

The Peoples Temple, the organization hardly anyone outside California had heard of, was originally founded in the state of Indiana. Jim Jones, the self-declared Messiah, created the church out of frustration by the U.S government persecuting the communists. Using his church as a tool, he was able to recruit working-class people who were tired of poverty, racial issues, and the Vietnam War. The members were urged to live a communal lifestyle. The money saved from their aloof lifestyle was donated to the Temple. This money went to further expand the cult’s influence and further promote their Marxist ideas.

By the 1970’s, the church had over a dozen temples. The temples were headquartered in San Francisco, California. The higher ranking members knowingly faked healings, knowing that such acts attract people and generate income that help the poor and finance the church. In time, the People’s Temple earned a reputation for aiding African-Americans, drug addicts, and the homeless.

Jim Jones

In his early life, Jim Jones found making friends difficult. He was a social outcast, described by his peers as a “really weird kid” and “obsessed with religion and death.”Having and intense interest in religion and politics, he spent most of his time carefully studying historical figures such as Joseph Stalin, Karl Marx, Mahatma Gandhi, and Adolf Hitler. He endorsed communism, preached that the United States was the Antichrist, and that capitalism was the Antichrist system.

 

His father was an alcoholic and a sympathizer of the Ku Klux Klan. Due to his own experiences as a social outcast, Jones identified more with the repressed African-American community than with his own Caucasian community.

Jonestown – The Utopia Turned Fatal

In 1974, the Peoples Temple signed a lease to rent land in Guyana – a small sovereign state on the northern mainland of South America. The group was formally named the Peoples Temple Agricultural Project. However, it was better known as Jonestown. In the summer of 1977, Jones and several hundred Temple members moved to Guyana to escape from public pressure and allegations. Jim Jones saw the place as a socialist paradise – utopia.

At its peak in 1978, the population was just under 1000.

However, it quickly became clear that life in the remote area was definitely not a paradise. The settlers were fed with Soviet propaganda, adults and children had to study about grandiose Jones ideas, and everyone had to worship their self-claimed leader. Being on poor soil meant that Jonestown was not self-sufficient. Large quantities of commodities had to be imported, buildings fell into disrepair, and weeds encroached on fields.

The Mass Suicide

Congressman Leo Ryan flew to visit Jonestown with 18 others. Both Ryan and the 18 others were aroused by the allegations of abuse in Jonestown. They wanted to visit in order to do some of their own investigation. Before leaving, the congressman was shot more than twenty times and was killed. Four other members of the delegation were also killed. The deaths of Ryan and the other visitors became a large turning point in the Jonestown story, and unfortunately also led to history’s biggest mass suicide.

According to escaped Temple member Odell Rhodes, the first to take the poison was Ruletta Paul and her one-year-old infant. Others were forced to drink a grape drink mixed with cyanide, Valium, chloral hydrate, and Phenergan. Parents were instructed to inject their own children with the very same lethal cocktail. The few survivors regard the event as a mass murder, Jones saw it as a revolutionary suicide.

5 Scariest Places You Never Want To Visit

Where a nun died in mysterious circumstances then you're in the wrong place. This is Strange Mysteries, and we're only interested in genuinely freaky locations where messed up stuff might actually happen to you. Alaska is scary enough due to the likelihood that at any given moment Sarah Palin could shoot you in the face, strip the skin from your corpse and mount your head on her bathroom wall while draped in old glory screaming the word freedom like a brain-damaged hyena.Think monkeys are cute? Think again. To us kinky westerners the word fetish conjures up images of whips, chains and my uncle's gimp mask. But Togo's Akodessewa Fetish Market contains no such items, for here, they trade in nothing but death and Voodoo.The Scottish village of Milton is a place so unremarkable that its Wikipedia entry is shorter than the opening paragraph for the page Geese in Chinese Poetry. If you're not a fan of rodents then the Karni Mata Temple in Deshnoke, India should not be on your itinerary, because this place is home to not just a few rats, but several thousand of the furry little fellas.
