Deorr Kunz Jr., 2 years old at the time, was reported missing by his parents on July 10, 2015. The toddler's parents, Jessica Mitchell and DeOrr Kunz, Sr., told authorities they believed DeOrr's great-grandfather was watching him at the Timber Creek Campgrounds outside remote Leadore, Idaho, while his great-grandfather believed the boy was down by the creek with his parents and the fourth adult on the trip, a friend of the great-grandfather.
The parents' separate 911 calls triggered an investigation that's left more questions than answers. Discrepancies quickly emerged in the accounts of the circumstances under which Deorr vanished. Inconsistencies in statements from the tot's parents became public; officials say both have failed multiple polygraph tests. Both Mitchell and Deorr Sr. were named suspects in the case in January.
The whereabouts of little DeOrr are a true mystery. Although a team of private investigators has pointed the finger of blame at the parents, an arrest has not been made. Join Dick and Jill at the quiet end of the bar for a thorough look at the events leading up to and following DeOrr's disappearance.
On May 6, 2013, Tim Bosma left his wife and young child to take two men on a test drive in his truck. He never returned. Days later, his charred remains were found in a livestock incinerator. Who would do this to this friendly, hard-working young father? What was the motive? Was it a car-jacking gone wrong?
The answers are even more shocking than the crime. The two men who answered Tim's online ad were thrill seekers with a plan to kill. Tim, a mere afterthought.
Join Jill and Dick as we investigate this rare and horrifying phenomenon of thrill killing, reveal the histories of the killers that led to this senseless crime, and honor the life and loss of Tim Bosma, a man in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Crystal Rogers, 35, was last seen playing games on her phone on the night of July 3, claims boyfriend Brooks Houck, who said the mother to his 2-year-old son was not at home when he woke up the next morning. Houck said he wasn't concerned because the couple has had a 'stressed relationship' at times and Crystal would sometimes 'cope or deal' by spending the night at her cousin Sabrina's house.
Crystal's family immediately knew that something was wrong and blamed Brooks for Crystal's disappearance.
It's been a year and a lot has happened, but we still don't know what happened to Crystal and her children are still without a mother. To her family's relief, Brooks has finally been named a suspect by the police.

11-year old Celina Cass was reported missing from her home in West Stewartstown, New Hampshire on July 26, 2011. Her body was found wrapped in a blanket six days later in the river about a half-mile from her home.
Her former stepfather, 52 year old Wendell Noyes, was arrested on June 20th of this year for her murder. Noyes did not enter a plea and there was no bail hearing. His defense attorney said she has concerns about his competency, saying that the same judge presiding over his arraignment found Noyes to be incompetent last fall. The murder case has subsequently been put on hold as an updated competency evaluation is pending.
Police say he killed 11-year-old Celina by submerging her body in the Connecticut River five years ago. His charge carries a possible life sentence. Investigators questioned him after the murder, but he was uncooperative. Days later, he checked himself into a mental hospital. Celina’s mother, Louisa Cass, has said she wants Noyes to “rot in hell,” and that she was upset it took so long for someone to be arrested.
“Finally after five years, we’re going to get justice,” Louisa Cass said. She said that Noyes had seemed like a loving and appropriate stepfather, but his behavior after Celina went missing made her begin to suspect him.
Jill and Dick take some time at the quiet end of the bar to learn more about Celina's life and why it was tragically cut short. A New Hampshire beer from Deciduous Brewing is shared!
The mysterious case of Lauren Spierer has haunted detectives in the charming college town of Bloomington, Indiana, since June 2011, when the Indiana University sophomore disappeared after a night of partying. Despite sustained national media attention and a steady flow of tips, the investigation has yet to result in a single arrest or any evidence of her fate.
From the beginning, the Lauren Spierer story had all the makings of a made-for-TV mystery: her distraught, determined parents making public pleas for information, the group of male friends who were with her the night she disappeared quickly lawyering up when they became persons of interest, and, of course, Lauren herself: a diminutive, blue-eyed blonde from New York’s wealthy Westchester County, practically embodied the “Missing White Woman” stereotype.
Dick and Jill work to move past rumors, innuendo, and judgement as they discuss the case of missing college student Lauren Spierer. Is there something to be learned from this and similar cases that can save other young women from similar fates? Grab a pint (or a snifter) and meet us at the quiet end of the bar.
