Through 1984 and 1985, a mysterious group calling itself "The Monster With 21 Faces" waged an extortion and blackmail campaign against numerous Japanese companies. This bizarre vendetta began on March 18th, 1984, when Glico company president Katsuhisa Ezaki was abducted from his home in Nishinomiya. He was held for three days, but - following his escape - his abductors would pivot their torment from him to his company.

Whoever the culprits had been, they had burrowed through 100 feet of soil from a nearby sewer drain, and had drilled their way into the bank vault.

Snohomish County Jane Doe
On August 14th, 1977, a pair of blackberry pickers were walking in a wooded area of Everett, Washington - nearby Mariner High School and Paine Field. There, they found the decomposing body of a young woman, who had been brutally murdered.  Over the next week, police focused in their investigation on a single suspect: a man named David Marvin Roth, who had confessed to a friend (and who had also been arrested a few days after the murder on unrelated charges).  Eventually, Roth would be convicted for th...

The Texarkana Moonlight Murders (Part Two: The Town That Dreaded Sundown)
In May of 1946, a violent crime unfolds just outside of Texarkana. A farm owner and his wife are shot multiple times by a mysterious attacker, who seems to have disappeared into thin air. While the assault bears a resemblance to a recent string of murders in Texas, it features a number of notable outliers; outliers which make investigators hesitant to officially name it a part of the recent spree.

The Texarkana Moonlight Murders (Part One: The Phantom)
Texarkana is a metropolitan area that is split between Texas and Arkansas.

The first two victims lived to tell their tale, but the next several victims wouldn't be as lucky. As the hunt began to find this madman, the case would attract the attenti...

Malakia Logan
Two years before the disappearance of the Millbrook Twins, and six years before Tiffany Nelson went missing, another African American girl went missing about an hour north - in a small town called Greenwood, South Carolina.  Malakia Zali Logan was a regular kid, who spent the evening of May 15th, 1988 playing with friends. Sometime between 8:00 and 8:30 PM, she hopped on her bike and headed home - a distance no greater than 300 yards. Her bike was found overturned by the apartment's office, but she was n...

The Millbrook Twins (Part Three: The Now)
In March of 1990, two teenagers disappeared from Augusta, Georgia. Their names are Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook. Early on, the lead detective - who handled all of Augusta's missing teenager cases - zeroed in on the theory that both girls had run away together. This theory began to look less likely with each passing day, but that didn't stop the case from being closed in 1991 and the investigation shuttered until 2013.  In the years since, police and independent investigators have had very little evid...
