The six new stories in Unsolved Mysteries volume two are worldwide cold cases
Washington Insider Murder
“In 2010 the body of former White House aide John ‘Jack’ Wheeler was found in a Delaware landfill. Police ruled his death a homicide, and a high-level investigation produced few leads. Wheeler, a well-respected Vietnam veteran who worked with three presidential administrations, was spotted on security camera footage the night before he died, wandering office buildings and looking disheveled. No one has come forward with information, and there are no suspects in his murder.”
Death in Oslo
“When a woman was found dead in a luxury hotel room in Oslo, Norway, it appeared to be a suicide. However, several pieces didn’t add up: she had no identification, her briefcase contained 25 rounds of ammunition and no one reported her missing. Who was this woman, and could she have been part of a secret intelligence operation?”
Death Row Fugitive
“In the 1960s repeat sexual offender Lester Eubanks confessed and was sentenced to death for killing a 14-year-old girl in Mansfield, Ohio. After the death penalty was abolished in 1972, he left death row and participated in a program that allowed him to leave prison grounds. In 1973, while Christmas shopping with other inmates, Eubanks escaped. Information about his whereabouts surfaced in the ’90s and early 2000s, but Eubanks has managed to evade capture and remains a fugitive on the U.S. Marshal’s 15 Most Wanted List.”
“In 2011 the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan killed 20,000 people and left 2,500 missing. Following the disaster, many residents of Ishinomaki, one of the worst communities hit, experienced strange phenomena. Taxi drivers spoke of ‘ghost passengers.’ Others claimed to have seen the dead or been inhabited by lost spirits. As a local reverend observed, the tragedy enabled them to ‘see what’s not supposed to be seen’.”
Lady in the Lake
“When JoAnn Romain’s car was found outside her church in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, police were quick to say she walked into the nearby freezing lake and drowned herself, despite the fact that an intense search did not recover her body. Seventy days later, when JoAnn’s body was found in the Detroit River, 35 miles away, her children were convinced their mother was a victim of foul play. They have a list of suspects and continue to search for the truth.”
“In 1989, two child abductions occurred within months of each other at the same Harlem playground. Police and locals were put on high alert, but they found no trace of the missing toddlers. Heartened by the case of Carlina White—a woman who was reunited with her biological parents 23 years after being abducted as a baby—the mothers of Christopher Dansby and Shane Walker hope for any information about their sons.”
