Amber Gail Creek, The bodies in the barrels, Christine Thornton and Rodney Alcala "The dating game killer".

Hey, how's it going?
Sorry there's been a bit of a gap in my posting schedule (did I actually ever have one? haha) but I've been writing blogs for Generation why podcast in my spare time- so I promise I'm not slacking off on my true crime / cold case duties!
I haven't been able to post here as much as I'd like to, but obviously you can read what I have written over there. 
Thought I'd just give you a heads up, because the few cases I've done so far are very interesting!

As you know from my previous post the other week, I wrote about Amber Creek. Amber went missing in the 1990's and her killer was only recently identified. You can read that post here << click click

I also recapped and blogged about recent updates in the Bear brooks murder case (you may know it as "the bodies in the barrels" or a similar name)
The case revolves around the bodies of a woman and child found wrapped in plastic and stuffed into a barrel in 1985. Some years later yet another barrel would be discovered containing the bodies of two more little girls. It would later be revealed that they were all connected and only recently has the mystery of what happened to them (and who committed the brutal act) come to light.

The last post currently up there from me is "Finding Christine Thornton". This post is about a woman who had searched for her missing sister for years to no avail. One day she was browsing through a series of photographs released by the FBI that were from the collection of the "dating game killer" Rodney Alcala's personal collection, when she saw a familiar face looking back at her...
You can read about that case in its entirety by clicking here <<

I completed another post last week too, it'll be published over at generation why pretty soon. This one is about a headless and limbless torso discovered behind a gas station. The case is no longer cold as it has thankfully been solved. I fear the person that is responsible may have committed more crimes than we know of. So remember to check back for that.
I'll be posting here this weekend, so see you then!

Generation why podcast and the murder of Amber Creek

Hey everyone, I have some news to share- I'm now a contributor over at the generation why podcast website!
I started a new job last month where I'm able to listen to podcasts all day long, which is something I previously never had a lot of extra time for. Generation why was the one that got me hooked, so I was totally excited when they asked me to write posts for them. 
The first topic I wrote about was the murder of Amber Creek which you can read by clicking here .

You can listen to the Generation the generation why podcasts over at their website [X] 
In their own words "Two friends, Aaron and Justin, discuss theories and share their opinions on unsolved murders, controversies, mysteries, conspiracies, and true crime."

If you don't have a lot of spare time to read, listening to true crime podcasts is a good way to catch up on recent cases and get new insights into old ones. 
I'll be making a favorite true crime podcasts post later this month, so check back for that. If you're old school you can sign up for Real Life is Horror updates by email by submitting your email into the box on the right.
