Episode 19 - Will We Be Exhuming Amanda Wienckowski's Body...Again?
This episode is proudly sponsored by Anchor.fm! In this episode, Rick & Gavin discuss the new Amanda Wienckowski YouTube video which explores whether or not Amanda was tasered before being killed. We believe that she was and in order to prove that, we are preparing to have her body exhumed – for a second time. Since the Erie County Medical Examiner's office refuses to look at any new evidence, we will have to provide it in court and force them to change their findings to murder. To help Amanda's family with the expenses required in the exhumation, examination and re-internment, we have set up a special fundraiser t-shirt just for Amanda on our web site. The link is below. Please help if you can. https://solvecrimes.tv/shop/womens-apparel/womens-justice-for-amanda-wienckowski-t-shirt/ Please subscribe to our YouTube channel at https://YouTube.com/c/SolveCrimes/ Visit our web site for info and our brand new merchandise shop at https://SolveCrimes.tv

Episode 18 - Rick & Gavin Discuss New Developments in the Amanda Wienckowski and Judy Hakari Cases
This episode is proudly sponsored by Anchor.fm! In this episode, Rick & Gavin discuss a new development in the Amanda Wienckowski case that may require her body to be exhumed – for the second time – in order to prove something that will hopefully force the Erie County, New York Medical Examiner's office to finally change her cause of death to Murder. They also discuss Rex, the eye-witness who claims to have not only seen Judy Hakari's abduction in 1970, but participated in helping her escape her captors when he was TWELVE years old.

Episode 14 - What Happened to 'Instagram Influencer' Alexis Sharkey?
This episode is proudly sponsored by Anchor.fm! We’ve talked about high-risk people before. Drug addicts, prostitutes,  runaways, etc. In this episode, we're talking about Alexis Sharkey. On  the surface, she wasn’t what most people would consider to be a high  risk person. Alexis was an Instagram influencer. She was glamorous, but  as we scratch just below the surface of her public persona, we'll  discover that she actually was pretty high risk.  Alexis Sharkey was found dead and naked alongside a frontage road in  Houston, TX. According to her sister, she hated the word “influencer.”  She preferred “businessperson.” But because she had a pretty big  following on Instagram and TikTok, and because she was beautiful, her  death got a lot of attention.

((This  episode proudly sponsored by Anchor.fm!)) - The 50-year-old Sacramento, California cold case of Carol Beth Hilburn (11/14/70) is still an active murder investigation. We were pleasantly surprised when we were contacted by Lynda Pinochi who is Carol's birth daughter. In all of the research we have done into Carol's case, there was never a mention of her having any children. Listen to this interview to find out why. In this episode, we talked exclusively with Lynda about her journey of discovering how her birth mother met her end. She discusses how that knowledge has impacted her entire life, why she is now fully committed to solving Carol's murder and why she chose Solve Crimes with Rick & Gavin as her partners to solve this crime. In fact, we have actually identified a brand new suspect that has never been discussed in relation to Carol's case and we will be talking about that in our next episode about Carol Beth Hilburn.

((This episode proudly sponsored by Anchor.fm!)) - Sacramento, California's Judith Ann Hakari’s life was taken. She was murdered;  her body dumped in a shallow grave.  After 50  years, we’re looking for justice for Judy Hakari and the community that  was rocked by her death.  We need your help. In this episode titled, "Judy's Missing", we focus on the 7 week period between her abduction and her body being discovered. The time between was rough on Judy's parents, her fiancé, the homicide investigators and the entire Sacramento community. We discuss Judy as a person and where she was in that moment before she was taken. How she was planning her June wedding, refurbishing a family heirloom piano for her and Ray's new home after the wedding, her engagement photo session that ended up being the last photo of her...taken on the day she died. We also talk about what her parents were going through during this time. The anguish of not knowing and feeling helpless and unable to do anything productive. Her father called this time period "Hellish". The local media updated the public each day with new information, but hope was waning as the weeks went on. And then April 25, 1970 a missing person case suddenly became a murder investigation.

Episode 01: The 50-year-old Cold Case of Sacramento, California's Judith Ann Hakari
Sacramento, California's Judith Ann Hakari’s life was going according to  her very detailed plan. She was a young professional woman with a great  career. She was an RN. She was engaged to be married. At 23, she had a  promising future. It all came to a violent end on March 7th, 1970  sometime after eleven thirty at night. She was taken. She was murdered;  her body dumped in a shallow grave. Some people think her death was the  work of a serial killer. Could it have been the Zodiac Killer, or maybe  even the Golden State Killer? Whoever did it, it was done just a few  feet away from her apartment where her fiancé was inside brushing his  teeth, waiting for her to come home. He couldn’t hear what was happening  outside. And then it happened again. And again. And again. After 50  years, we’re looking for justice for Judy Hakari and the community that  was rocked by her death. We need your help.
