  • grim story for halloween, once again i would like to bring attention to missing persons cases, especially those who are found or never found under mysterious circumstances in our state/national parks and rural areas, investigator David Paulides has done extensive research on this topic and i believe his information can help prevent these types of cases. Robert Firestone has been missing from the area for several years now and i can mention several other cases around here that may fall under this criteria, be safe everybody

  • Jeff Joseph , my brother , has been missing from willow creek / hoopa since 2014 but, I think this is a little far??

  • Kym, Did they ever put a name to the remains they found in Piercy a few years ago? If I remember correctly, it too was discovered on Halloween.

  • Wasn’t there an elderly man years back who wandered off and his daughter couldn’t find him?. Did they ever find him. I may have missed the update, years back. Just a thought.

  • its possible but hard to say cause there is so little information about the case and I do want come from a different angle on certain cases, David Paulides lays out a specific criteria to his cases, for example many victims will disappear without shoes or are found with out shoes, off the batt i think of the case of Shannon House and Jeannie Kramer just to name 2 that you have reported on, another bullet point is that many are found at a higher elevation from where they went missing or at the bottom of cliffs or falls, there are several other anomalies that happen also to make it one of these cases

  • To much death. To much murder. Sad Sad times are here.

  • Was there any ID in the wallet?

  • another interesting fact is that a large percentage of these victims have a German last names like House and Kramer

    • Browndwarf……Hi, would it be possible to speak to you about the Shannon house case, if you or someone you know has an idea of what might have happened? Shannon is my brother and we have not had any leads.

      • yes maggie my e-mail is browndwarf11@gmail.com from what I’ve read from your brothers case is that there was barefoot tracks leading to a pond or some body of water correct? if so i find that highly suspicious, send me an email and we can get into more details
