Jody LeCornu was the victim of a murder on March the 2nd, 1996 and her case remains unsolved. This is her spotlight.
Lori Lynn left her home of Ravenna, Ohio, United States on the morning of August 1st, 2017. She was to pick up her mother, Wanda Pullin in Liberty Township, Ohio to take her to the Trumbull County Court house to file some property records. Along the way, Lori placed several calls to her mother but failed to reach her. Cameras fitted to her mother’s residence show Lori arrive at 11:02 am and enter, looking for her mother. She exits at 11:36 am after finding Wanda not home and makes her way back to her vehicle and is seen leaving the residence driving back towards the road, out of view of the cameras. This is the last confirmed sighting of Lori.
By the evening, Lori’s absence is very much noticed, and soon frantic phone calls are placed to her phone by worried family and would continue well into the morning. The next morning two family members find Lori’s brand new 2017 Nissan Pathfinder parked in a garbage pile behind the barn of Wanda Pulin’s property, this was followed by the discovery that the tractor and brush hog used to tend the grass was missing. The two family members followed the trail of mowed grass until the came across the tractor in one of the ponds on the property. Lori was on the tractor with her face submerged in the pond.
An initial investigation by Liberty Township Police Department ruled the death a farm accident which began a near four long agonizing fight by Lori Lynn’s family who insisted the retired heavy machine operator 60-year-old had not died by accident but in fact was the victim of foul play, claims sadly falling on deaf ears. Initial missteps in early investigation and a too quick to rule accident put a significant hamper on getting to the bottom of Lori Lynn’s death and allowing a potential killer to get away with homicide. Today, we explore the tragic and untimely death of Lori Lynn. SOURCES:

On the night of Wednesday, 23rd of November 2016, Tom Brown and some friends met at a Middle School car park. An ordinary night filled with driving, listening to music and big dreams to leave the small town of Canadian, Texas behind and start their lives.
Tom and friends Christian and Kaleb bundle into Christian’s car and they drive around town, stopping to go for a walk. Soon 11 pm rolls along so the trio decided to call it a night. Christian drives the boys and herself back to the car park where they get into their own cars. Kaleb watches Tom get into his red Dodge Durango at 11:26 pm and drive away, not knowing this would be the last time he saw his friend.
At the Brown residence, Tom’s midnight curfew comes and goes without any sign of the 18-year-old and mother Penny begins to worry as it was very unlike him to be late. The minutes slowly trickle by and after a few texts, Penny is advised by her husband, a volunteer firefighter and Tom’s stepfather, to ring a sheriff’s dispatch And after 45 minutes a deputy responds and search for Thomas begins.
What ensues from this night and well into the days, weeks, months and years is a truly bizarre and baffling case. A case where misinformation, a thousand different stories and rumours attach themselves to a case already beset with issues such as private investigations and rumours of a cover up.
But behind the controversy and small-town gossip, lies a heart-breaking case and questions that remain unanswered, what happened to Thomas Kelly Brown, a young man who played football, video games, was well liked and a class president. How did his car come to be abandoned at a water treatment plant, his belongings scattered for miles beyond and ultimately where his remains would be found three years later? In this episode we explore the disappearance and eventual discovery of Tom Brown.
On Monday the 23rd of January 2006, Jennifer Kesse left her boyfriend’s house in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The two had been vacationing in the Virgin Islands and Jennifer stayed a night there, as she often did before driving to work. After working a full day, Jennifer left work at 6 pm before driving back to her condo in Mosaic Millenia. She spoke to her parents and brother Logan, telling them about the vacation and catching up. Around 10 pm, Jennifer calls her boyfriend Rob but as she was tired from the vacation was in bed and the conversation was brief but before getting off the phone they told each other they missed each other and were excited for the next break away they would take.
Rob was running late for work the next morning and seeing no call or text from Jennifer which she done in the morning, decided to call her instead but got only her voicemail. Upon finishing a work meeting later on, Rob would call her again but this went straight to voice mail, and upon learning Jennifer did not arrive for work that morning either, both Rob and Jennifer’s parents were notified of this and they began to drive the two hours from their home in Tampa , Florida to Jennifer’s condo.
Upon arriving and gaining access by the management whom the Kesse’s had called beforehand, there appeared to be nothing amiss in the condo. The bed looked slept in, items of clothing spread out as the outfit of the day, a towel wet from a shower and make up out, all the indicators that Jennifer had at least got ready for work that morning. The only things that were missing were her purse, keys, phone and iPod and of course Jennifer herself. Police were soon notified of her disappearance and there the OC Sheriffs and OPD deputies arrived, before deeming it a possible mental breakdown or tiff with the boyfriend, they left and that is how the long and arduous journey for the Kesse’s 14 year search for their missing daughter.
A search which was plagued by a lack of physical evidence, an uncertain time of disappearance and even CCTV footage of the “luckiest person of interest in the world”. In todays episode we explore the mysterious disappearance of Jennifer Kesse, a much-loved young woman who was seemingly plucked off the face of the world and has not been seen or heard of since.

*While Recording this episode I was so wrapped up in the mixing I did not realise that the airing of the podcast would coincide with 13 years to the day since Jaliek went missing until it was already mixed and ready, this is why it will be even more imperative to please share this episode as far and wide as you can*
On the night of the 1st of November 2007, Jaliek Rainwalker was last seen by his adoptive father. When Stephen Kerr woke up the next morning, Jaliek was nowhere to be seen. With his bed made up to apparently look like he was sleeping, Stephen realised his son was gone and would report Jaliek missing to the police.
When Police arrive, Stephen informs them that a duffle bag, a stuffed animal that belonged to his adopted son and some clothes were missing, and most harrowing of all; a note is found seemingly written by the twelve year old stating he was leaving. But what looks from the onset as a runaway child, soon spirals down a much sinister path. Both family and loved ones of Jaliek insist he had not run away, and the investigation soon turns into a suspected murder with none other than his adopted parents in the spotlight.
In this episode, we uncover the suspicious vanishing of 12 year old Jaliek Rainwalker, a young boy who from his very birth had trial after trial levelled at him and uncover the information from the day he was reported missing, through to the avenues of investigation that led police to looking closer to home in the disappearance.
