North Carolina mystery: Woman missing in town where 3 found dead

LUMBERTON, N.C. – Six months after the bodies of three women were found in different places in Lumberton, N.C., police in the town are looking for a 20-year-old who has been missing for a month.

CBS affiliate WNCN reports that police say Abby Patterson was last seen on Sept. 5 getting into a brown Buick near East Ninth Street.

Capt. Terry Parker of the Lumberton Police told CBS News’ Crimesider that investigators do not think that Patterson’s disappearance is related the deaths of Megan Ann Oxendine, 28, Christina Bennett, 32, and Rhonda Jones, 36, who were all found dead in an area between East Fifth and East Ninth streets. WNCN reports that Bennett and Jones’ bodies were discovered April 18 and Oxedine’s on June 3.

Disappearance of Joan Rebar remains a mystery two years after she was last seen in Meriden

Tuesday marks two years since Joan M. Rebar disappeared. While her daughter, Twen Barton, has accepted that her mother won’t be back, she still hopes for closure.

“I feel like somebody somewhere knows something,” Barton said. “I just hope that someday we can have closure.”

Rebar was last seen Sept. 26, 2015, at the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Meriden. She was 70 years old at the time of her disappearance.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case as a homicide until proven otherwise, sheriff Tim Morse said.

“I have worked in public safety most of my adult life and have never seen a case like this,” Morse said. “I have never had a case where the missing person couldn’t be found. I have never seen a case where there simply were no clues as to what happened.”

Cold-case Podcast: Mystery writer probing local missing person case

“Leap in the Dark” will explore the case of Rose Peterson, who was last seen walking from Calumet to Hancock on U.S. 41 in 1989.

The podcast is hosted by Jill Revak, a mystery writer from Minneapolis. She decided to start a podcast as research for a novel in which the main character goes incognito as a podcaster.

Revak found out about the case from her mother, who grew up in Houghton. Peterson, who was living in a halfway house in Calumet, was believed to be walking from the group home when she vanished.

Revak’s interviews have included Peterson’s son and her niece, a detective with the Michigan State Police.

She’s also exploring a potential link with David Goodreau, who killed two people in the early 1990s. Goodreau may have encountered her while working in the Social Security office, Revak said.

The family had some reluctance at first but has cooperated

Her body was found in Macon almost 40 years ago. But who she is remains a mystery

Editor’s note: This story is part of an occasional series about unidentified human remains found in Middle Georgia. If you have information about the unidentified woman described here, please call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500.

Though the body was lying in the front yard of a house, it was more than a month before anyone noticed it.

One Thursday afternoon nearly 40 years ago, a woman who lived on Riverside Drive in Macon was outside hanging laundry on a clothesline when something caught her eye.

There in a sparsely wooded area about 15 feet from the road, 47-year-old Estoria Bowman saw what she later described as a “yellowish shape.”

“I got close enough to tell it was a human, and then I backed off and waited for my husband,” Bowman told a Telegraph reporter at the time. “I didn’t want to find out what it was by myself.”

The body had been

Nathan Active mystery hits all the right Alaska notes – Fairbanks Daily News

FAIRBANKS — The pitch for Stan Jones’ “Tundra Kill: A Nathan Active Mystery” doesn’t do the book justice. In its own words: “America’s favorite Eskimo cop must figure out what connects Alaska’s gorgeous female governor to a dog musher killed by snowmobile.”

That sounds like a parody of crime novels, something you’d hear about in the realm of a sitcom to skewer gimmicky crime-solvers and the Alaska reality show in one fell swoop. And that’s before you’re introduced to the governor in question, who’s doing such a blatant impression of Sarah Palin that when Palin herself gets mentioned it’s an eyebrow-raising surprise.

And yet … 

It’s good. “Tundra Kill” is good, a solid mystery and procedural crime novel with appealing lead characters, an engaging story and a fully-realized setting. It hits all the right genre notes, from the stoic lead’s banter with his co-workers to

Armchair detectives trying to solve the mystery of a 1971 skyjack

On November 24, 1971, an individual who identified himself as #d b cooper and was dressed in a business suit boarded a Seattle-bound aircraft in #Portland. He had with him a suitcase and after the flight was airborne, he indicated to a flight attendant that there was an explosive device in his suitcase. He also demanded $200,000 in cash as #ransom money apart from other items.

The authorities met his demands and at Seattle airport, he permitted the 36 other passengers and some crew members to get off the plane but he remained and ordered the pilot to fly the plane slowly to Mexico. As it was flying, he opened a rear door, jumped out with the cash and literally vanished into thin air.

Investigations to date by FBI
