• MISSING GIRLS OF THE DESERT

         Written by Chandler Vaughn

    APPLE VALLEY, Calif. – It was Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015. Krystie Stuart, 29 year-old Lucerne Valley resident, vanished and was never seen again.

    Earlier that day, Krystie had driven to Jess Ranch Dental for a walk in appointment, but the dentist couldn’t see her.  At that time, according to the office staff, Krystie misplaced her car keys, but eventually found a spare and walked out the door.

    Evidently, Krystie had plans to stay at a friends house that evening, but never arrived. According to a post on the family’s Facebook Page, “Help Find Krystie Stuart”, a bloodhound traced her scent across the street to the parking lot behind Bed Bath and Beyond. There, her scent was lost.

    On March 8th, Krystie’s Dodge Dakota was located in the open desert 20 minutes north-east of Jess Ranch Dental near Fairview Valley, as the crow flies, almost directly in between State Route 18, “Happy Trails Highway”, and State Route 247.

    The contents of Krystie’s car, (although not necessarily enough to indicate foul play to investigators), were disturbing and left many unanswered questions. Her eye glasses were there.  Her cell phone.  Her shoes, socks and bra.  The medication she had just picked up.  Everything was there, but not Krystie. The bloodhounds went to work again, but her scent could not be found.

    NOTE***If Krystie’s scent could not be found, and she  didn’t leave her truck in the desert, then who did? And wouldn’t that (possibly) indicate foul play?

    MISSING GIRLS OF THE DESERT – I’m actually starting to get angry about this “no evidence to indicate foul play” conclusion, after so many women’s vehicles have been recovered. In San Bernardino County, this conclusion is reached by default, quickly and frequently.

    I appreciate and respect law enforcement officers. These are hard cases. No evidence to be found, I get it.

    …BUT, THAT CERTAINLY DOESNT MEAN THAT NO FOUL PLAY WAS INVOLVED.

    As I write about CASE AFTER CASE of missing women who vanish into the open desert of California, but “no foul play is suspected”, many questions arise:

    • Why would they leave their cell phones?
    • Why in the world would they ditch their cars?
    • Why leave their wallets?
    • In some cases, their beloved pets?

    In my humble opinion….THEY WOULDNT!

    I assume these are the heart-sick questions their Mother’s ask every night. I often cry while writing these articles, when I think of their Moms.

    It has been over 2 years since Krystie Stuart disappeared. Krystie is loved and missed desperately. Her family’s Facebook page, “Help Find Krystie Stuart” is always updated. Please like and share.

  • MISSING GIRLS OF THE DESERT

       Written by Chandler Vaughn

    EARP, Calif. – Sandy Giles Still Missing from San Bernardino County, California.

    SANDY GILES MISSING –  It was Mother’s Day weekend. Sandy, a 44 year-old beloved mother and resident of Maplesville, Alabama was headed home from a road trip she’d taken with a family friend.

    Sadly, on May 13, 2017, Sandy Giles vanished while traveling on California’s hot and dangerous, “Twentynine Palms Highway” and was never seen again.

    CALIFORNIA ROAD TRIP – Sandy reportedly had some issues while on the road. In Marysville, (Northern California) she had unexpectedly left her motel room in the middle of the night with the intention of driving back to Alabama alone. It appears that she was running out of money and gas near the end of her trip as she headed toward the Mojave Desert.

    Sandy called her son at 5 P.M. on May 13th from the Hi Sahara Oasis Gas Station in Essex/Fenner while adding as much fuel as she could afford.  Sandy’s family expected her home to Alabama no later than the following Monday.

    Allegedly, Sandy was going to attempt to make it to the closest Walmart to receive money by wire transfer.  The closest Walmart stores to Hi Sahara Oasis are:

    • Bullhead City, Nevada- 1 hour 13 minutes
    • Parker, Arizona- 2 hours

    I-40 EAST / OLD STATE ROUTE 66 – Hi Sahara Oasis is the only gas station for 100 miles on this infamous stretch of highway, also known as “Old National Trails Highway” and “Old Route 66”.

    TWENTYNINE PALMS HWY – The last leg of this trip would put Sandy on State Route 62, aka. “Twentynine Palms Highway”, with the sun setting around 7:40 P.M. that evening.

    I-10 EAST – It seems likely that Sandy was planning to take the “southern route”, Interstate 10 EAST, back to Alabama, which might be why she went south to Parker despite the longer distance.

    MISSING PERSON – Sandy Giles’ call from Hi Sahara Oasis was the last call she made.  On May 16th, Sandy’s 2013 Dodge Avenger was found partially high-center on a sand wash, just outside of Earp, California.

    COLORADO RIVER – The micro-town of Earp, (named after lawman Wyatt Earp), lies just across the Colorado River from Parker, a short 2 or 3 miles from Walmart.

    SANDY GILES MISSING PERSON – All Sandy’s belongings were locked in the vehicle, including her purse, clothing, cell phone and asthma inhaler.  The only thing missing was Sandy herself and the car keys. It is still unknown if Sandy’s car was out of gas (again) or if she ran off the road accidently into the wash and got stuck.

    MOJAVE DESERT – After searching the roadside area thoroughly, her family personally recovered Sandy’s flip flop sandals about 20 yards down “Twentynine Palms Highway” near a patch of sage brush. There were a few bare footprints in the desert sand, but nothing else.

    MISSING PERSON SEARCH – In late May, a search party of volunteers gathered at the Earp Post Office to search the area again, but found no trace of Sandy Giles.

    SANDY GILES DESCRIPTION:

    • Caucasian Female
    • Missing From Earp, California
    • Date Missing: May 13, 2017

  • MISSING GIRLS OF THE DESERT

          Written by Chandler Vaughn

    APPLE VALLEY, Calif. – It was Halloween Night, October 31, 2015. Christina Bastian, high school teacher, was having some issues in life…but she was making it.  Although Christina was diagnosed bi-polar, she had come off medication a few months earlier while under a doctor’s care.

    Despite recent ups and downs, Christina was known to keep daily contact with her family and had purchased a new Dodge Ram truck one week before.

    CHRISTINA BASTIAN MISSING – On the night in question, Christina attended a church function and then stayed the night at a friend’s house with her dog, Coco.

    Mysteriously, sometime in the night, Christina and Coco vanished.  Coco was found alive, but Christina was never seen again.

    MISSING PERSON CHRISTINA BASTIAN:

    • Caucasian Female
    • Missing From: Apple Valley, California
    • Date Missing: October 31, 2015
    • Age 34
    • 170 ibs
    • 5 feet 6 inches tall
    • Hair: Red
    • Eyes: Brown
    • Wears Eye Glasses

    MISSING / UNSOLVED – It is hoped by Christina’s family that she’s decided to start a new life, in a new town.  Maybe a new state…Arizona, for instance.  I certainly hope so.  However, the details of this case create a worrisome puzzle that deserves further attention.

    NOV. 1, 2015 – The following day, Christina’s truck, belongings, and dog, Coco, were found in several different locations. 

    •  Cali’s SR 18 named after cowboy Roy Rogers, Apple Valley, Ca.
    • CA State Route 18 – Coco was found near the intersection of State Route 18, “Happy Trails Highway”, one mile north of Bear Valley Road. Thankfully, a local Good Samaritan scooped up Coco and published a lost-and-found ad, which was seen by a family friend one week later. *This is close to where Christina is thought to have disappeared.
    • Ca State Route 247- Christina’s backpack and belongings, including items important to her, photos and medication, were found scattered about State Route 247 near Lucerne Valley. Oddly, the bumper of her truck was also found on State Route 247.
    • CA State Route 62 – Christina’s Dodge Ram truck was located on a desert road off of California’s hot and dangerous “Twentynine Palms Hwy”, State Route 62, near Morongo Valley.  The truck showed signs of damage.  Visible dents and scrapes were noted along the sides, as if it had been driven through bushes or bramble.

    TOWN OF APPLE VALLEY POLICE DEPT – If you have information on the whereabouts of Christina Bastian, please call:

    • Apple Valley Police Department at 760-240-7400.

  • April 29, 2017 /  San Bernardino CA, Suspicious Death

    JANUARY BLAITHWAITE’S SUSPICIOUS DEATH

         Written by Chandler Vaughn

    SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – It was a Friday in the city of San Bernardino, December 9, 2016.  The autumn-winter sun set early that evening, just before 5 P.M.

    JANUARY BLAITHWAITE- January Lynn Blaithwaite, 35, grabbed her cell phone, stepped out the front door of her Mom’s house to smoke a cigarette and vanished.

    The first sign of trouble was January’s cell phone, located outside on the walkway, smashed into bits.  January was nowhere to be found.

    BODY FOUND ON 210 FREEWAY– Sadly, later that night, January was found on California’s State Route 210, also known as the “Foothill Freeway”. A passer-by saw her in the west-bound lane and called 911, but it was too late.

    SUSPICIOUS DEATH – December 9, 2016, January Blaithwaite, beloved Daughter, Sister and Mother of three was pronounced dead at the scene.

    It has been assumed that January was likely hit by a car.  That may have been what  ended her life, but doesn’t explain how or why  January was on the freeway, 5 miles from home in the first place; and why her phone was found smashed.

    It is unknown what happened the night January Braithwaite was killed, but it seems that foul play could be involved.

    SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY SHERIFF – If you have any information regarding the suspicious death of January Blaithwaite, please call:

    • Submit an Anonymous Tip by phone: 1-800-78-CRIME

    UNSOLVED MURDERS: JOHN AND CHRISTORIA BILKEI

          Written by Chandler Vaughn

    ORANGEVALE, Calif– To the shock of the community, beloved senior couple, John and Christoria Bilkei were found dead on July 26, 1980. 

    JOHN AND CHRISTORIA BILKEI MURDER- Sadly, these sweet Grandparents had been violently attacked and stabbed to death in their own home on Donnawood Way in Orangevale.

    It was obvious to investigators that a tremendous struggle had occurred but there was no clear murder suspect to name. In the 1980’s the use of DNA by law enforcement had not yet become available. An arrest was never made in the case.

    The Bilkei’s double homicide remains unsolved after 37 years. 

    SACRAMENTO CO. SHERIFF- The Sacramento County Sheriff is revisiting this cold case and is asking for the public’s help in solving it.

    If you have any information on the unsolved double murder of John and Christoria Bilkei, please contact:

        Written by Chandler Vaughn

  • SUSPECTED SERIAL KILLER NEAL FALLS – DID HE KILL IN CALIFORNIA?

      Written by Chandler Vaughn

    CHARLESTON, West Virginia- July 18, 2015. Neal M. Falls, suspected serial killer, shot dead with his own gun by escort in West Virginia.

    BACKPAGE.COM- Heather Saul, 30 year-old escort, advertises her services on a dangerous prostitution website called “BackPage.com”.

    On the Saturday in question, Neal Falls simply responded to the ad.

    “Sexy, red-headed sweetheart”, the ad said…A serial killer’s dream.

    NEAL FALLS KILLED BY ESCORT-  It was a summer afternoon, 3 p.m. Heather opened her door to an average looking, 45 year-old, white male. Upon seeing that no one else was in her apartment, he jammed a gun into her side.

    “Live or die”?, Falls demanded.

    He started violently strangling her. Heather noticed a small rake in the kitchen (a pet poop scoop) and grabbed it to fight him off. Fortunately, he put his gun down to regain control of her. At that moment, she seized the loaded gun and shot behind herself, over her shoulder. Heather revealed later that she could hear the sound of “fluids” hitting the floor as he slumped and slowly fell.

    Neal Falls was shot in the head and killed instantly.

          Suspect’s Vehicle

    MURDER SUSPECT’S VEHICLE– Police were called to the scene. Parked outside Heather’s residence, an innocent looking gold Subaru-type SUV with Oregon plates. Inside it was found the most grim set of tools. Investigators located a “kill kit” under the wagon’s back hatch. A mess of hatchets, knives, shovels and handcuffs strewn about unapologetically. Bleach, garbage bags, the list is long. The driver of this car appears to have been a lifetime predator. One can only hope the SUV’s filthy interior will yield DNA samples to solve his horrific crimes.

        Neal Falls “Kill Kit”

    NEAL FALLS- Authorities suspect the dead killer has likely murdered and dismembered women from coast to coast, as far back as the year 2000.

    Body parts in plastic bags, hundreds of miles apart. Often near an interstate highway.

    Missing girls and women. Some of them in pieces.

    FBI MULTI- STATE INVESTIGAION– The FBI suspects that Neal Falls may have left a jagged swath of murder victims running through West Virginia, Ohio, New York, Illinios, Kansas, Texas, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, California and at least 10 other states.

      Suspect is Oregon Resident

    SERIAL KILLER- It appears that Neal Falls, resident of Springfield, Oregon, had no criminal history. His identity as a serial killer slipped past law enforcement for years. He worked as a security guard and possibly for the railroad, all across the United States.

    He was fingerprinted by the FBI when obtaining his many security guard certifications. His certifications were active from 1999-2015.

    From 2000-2008 Neal Falls was employed as a “traffic control guard” at Hoover Dam. He lived in Henderson, Nevada, on the outskirts of Vegas. During this time period authorities believe he may have killed women and dumped their bodies in California, just across Nevada/Arizona State Lines. In those days, he may have used Craigslist, in addition to finding his victims on the open road.

    Former Hoover Dam co-workers of Neal Falls, (who found his behavior bizarre) once asked him what he had been doing the night before. He exclaimed without reservation “I was driving up and down the highway!”.

    Many girls were reported missing (or found dead) from the Mojave desert region of southern California during the 8 year period in which Neal Falls worked at Hoover Dam.

    After Falls was fatally shot by Heather Saul, a list was recovered from his pocket with the names of ten women. Police believe the named females were going to be his next victims.

    Nine of the women on the list were from West Virginia, one of them from San Diego.

    MISSING/ UNSOLVED MURDERS- With so many missing and murdered women in California from Oregon to the Mexican Border, is it possible Neal Falls, the alleged Butcher of Backpage”, was here?

    Although Neal Falls was active thousands of miles from the Mojave Desert, his most current address was Oregon, which may have brought him to the interstates of California for the past 15 years.

    CALIFORNIA INTERSTATE: I-15 & I-40

    • Interstate 1-15 from San Bernardino to Barstow to Vegas
    • Interstate I-40 from Barstow to Needles to Arizona

    Not only are there predators in the desert, these famous highways cut through some of the hottest places on Earth. Death Valley holds the world’s highest recorded temperature of 134 degrees. 

    Girls do not travel these interstates alone. Not even in broad daylight.

    Historically, long desert highways have attracted mayhem of all sorts. Both I-15 and I-40 are part of Old Route 66. Stories of the Mojave and Old Route 66 are legendary and quite mysterious.

    Manson. Mummies. Mine Shafts and Murders.

    Welcome to California.

    Please Follow the Law and Stay Safe.

    TRUE CRIME CALIFORNIA- Contact: chandlerzone@gmail.com

    …A quick note to Ms. Heather Saul of West Virginia. BRAVO. You’re quite bad ass. If you can kill a serial killer…you can do anything.  Sincerely, Chandler Vaughn.

       Written By Chandler Vaughn

    BARSTOW, Calif. – The above composite sketch is the likeness of a young girl who was murdered and barbarically decapitated in February 2010. Who is she? And how did she end up in Barstow?

    JANE DOE – She is now known as “San Bernardino Jane Doe (Feb 2010)”.

    HUMAN REMAINS FOUND IN DESERT- In February 2010, a man hunting for aluminum cans came across a backpack on Lenwood Road, a dusty desert byway in Barstow, just off California’s Interstate 15 near State Route 58.  He picked up the backpack (shown below) and opened it to find the severed head of a teenage girl wrapped in two plastic grocery bags.

    Barstow Police were called to the scene.

    SAN BERNARDINO JANE DOE (FEB 2010) – Did you know her?

    The girl was estimated to be 14-19 years of age.

    • She was Latina or possibly Caucasian.
    • Her hair was brown.
    • She had been deceased for around three days before she was discovered by the roadside.
    • Extensive dental work present in her mouth indicates she was fairly well taken care.

    SKETCH OF VICTIM– A composite sketch of what the young Jane Doe may have looked like was released by authorities. The remaining parts of her body were never found, so a height and weight couldn’t be determined.

      San Bernardino Jane Doe Feb 2010

    UNIDENTIFIED / UNSOLVED – Jane Doe’s murder and identity remain unsolved.

    BARSTOW POLICE- If you have information on the identity of San Bernardino Jane Doe Feb 2010, please call the Barstow Police at 760-255-5134.

  • February 7, 2017 /  Body Found California, True Crime

      Written by Chandler Vaughn

    LOS ANGELES, Calif,- Lisa Marie Naegle, reality T.V star, disappeared after a friend’s birthday party at Alpine Village, a Bavarian restaurant in Torrance. “A little slice of Bavaria”, they say.

    It was a Saturday night, December 18th, 2016.

    LISA MARIE NAEGLE MISSING- At 2 a.m., Lisa spoke to her husband, Derek Harryman, by phone, allegedly sounding buzzed. In her last text around 2:30 a.m., she assured him that she was leaving to get food and then coming home.

    Sadly, Lisa Marie Naegle left the party and was never seen alive again.

    REALITY T.V. STAR- Lisa and Derek were married one year after she competed on a reality show called “Bridalplasty” that aired in 2010. Lisa Marie worked as a successful nurse/nursing instructor at West Los Angeles College. Here she met some of the friends and students in attendance the night she went missing.

    JACKIE JEROME ROGERS- Restaurant staff, friends and students were questioned by law enforcement and family members. One student in particular, Jackie Jerrome Rogers, claimed that he and Lisa parted ways and left alone. In video surveillance footage obtained by the efforts of Lisa’s family, it became horribly clear he was not being honest. After conducting their own family investigation, the police were contacted with the evidence.

    LAPD ARREST SUSPECT: On Tuesday, LAPD officers arrested Jackie Jerome Rogers on suspicion of murder. Roger’s led police to his house about 20 minutes from Alpine Village. There, buried in his Lennox backyard, the body of Lisa Marie Naegle was found. He gave no explanation for her murder.

    SACRAMENTO, Calif.– Article: “Ryan Roberts Wrongful Conviction”.

    RYAN ROBERTS– It’s ridiculous to think that a person could end up in prison for murder simply because he smoked a few cigarettes at a local ballpark and then left the butts on the ground. In the case of Ryan Roberts, convicted of murdering Sacramento teen, Jessica Funk-Haslam, this may have been all that happened, thanks to questionable use of California’s Prop 69.

    SACRAMENTO TEEN MURDERED – In the interest of truth and justice, and the safety of our community, please imagine yourself in this position:

    • What if (at a public park) someone picks up your discarded cigarette butts and re-lights them…leaving their DNA mixed with yours?
    • What if that same person…is found dead in the park later that night?
    • What if you have an explanation for your cigarette butts/DNA being found at the park (crime scene), but detectives don’t believe you? What if the jury doesn’t?

    RYAN ROBERTS WRONGFUL CONVICTION- To tell the story of Ryan Robert’s wrongful conviction, I must first tell you the story of a beautiful Sacramento teen, Jessica Funk-Haslam and her violent murder. To tell Jessica’s story, I must also tell of two Lawless relatives, two brothers: Reed and Thomas, and a man named Johnny Richardson.

    JESSICA FUNK-HASLAM MURDER- If you can’t see a meaningful connection between Ryan Roberts and Jessica Funk-Haslam, or understand a motive, you’re not alone, it’s because there isn’t oneRemembering that, let me start from the beginning of this nightmare, March 6, 2012.

    THE BODY / THE MURDER- On March 6, 2012 a woman jogging through Sacramento’s Rosemont Park discovered the dead body of a young girl inside a baseball dugout. The girl was determined to be 13 year-old Jessica Funk Haslam, a somewhat rebellious teen, who was last seen alive the night before, with friend, Savannah Lawless.

    Jessica Funk-Haslam had been violently murdered. Strangled. Bludgeoned. Stabbed in the neck.

    SACRAMENTO CO. SHERIFF– Sheriff’s investigators were called to the scene. Evidence was collected, questions were asked, video footage obtained. Slowly, a story (with motive and witnesses) began to emerge. A story that would later be recanted.

    …A story that had NOTHING to do with Ryan Roberts.

    ROSEMONT PARK- As the original story goes, Jessica Funk-Haslam left home the afternoon of her murder, against the wishes of her mother, Tara Haslam. Allegedly, Jessica ended up at Rosemont Park with a new friend named Savannah Lawless who lived nearby with her mother, Christina Lawless, at a dodgy motel called Vince’s. The sun set around six o’clock that evening, March 5, 2012.

    CHRIS REED WITNESS STATEMENT- The details of the night started taking shape in a statement made by Chris Reed, a friend of Savanna’s mother, Christina.

    Allegedly, that evening, Savannah called her mom, who then handed the phone to Chris Reed. Chris Reed stated that Savannah asked for help and asked him to bring a blanket to the park. According to his original statement, by the time Chris Reed arrived at the park, there were already three individuals standing near Jessica’s body:

    1. Savannah Lawless
    2. Christina Lawless
    3. Johnny Richardson

    Chris Reed further stated there were two other people standing by.

    CHRIS REED/JOHNNY THOMAS RECANT- Chris Reed told the account of what happened to his brother, Johnny Thomas. Both brothers made official statements containing the three names mentioned above. Then, they literally scratched out the names and changed the statements to say “two girls and a guy”.

    At trial, the two statements were recanted entirely, with no explanation.

    Here are a few other details about Savannah Lawless and Chris Reed that should be considered…

    • Savannah Lawless was given immunity for her testimony.
    • Originally, and allegedly, Savannah Lawless implicated Chris Reed as having been with Jessica the night before.
    • Chris Reed was captured on video in the motel parking lot carrying a blanket under his left arm, as indicated in his recanted statement.
    • Chris Reed allegedly laundered the blanket before returning it.
    • Chris Reed was subpoenaed to testify, pled the 5th, (refused to answer on the grounds of self-incrimination) and was released from the subpoena…on his statement it says very clearly that he was afraid to testify because he feared he’d be charged with Jessica’s murder.

    SAVANNAH LAWLESS – Part of the story revealed at trial by defense witness, Michelle Serrao, placed Savannah Lawless with Jessica in a confrontation on the night in question. Michelle testified that upon hearing of Jessica’s murder, Savannah screamed “All I did was just beat her up!”.

    LAWLESS TEEN– An important fringe detail that was ignored by investigators was the friendship between the two girls. Savannah Lawless was a new friend to Jessica of just a few months. You’ve heard the term “mean girls”?  By many accounts Savannah was allegedly quite abusive and once slapped Jessica so hard it knocked her hat off. It has also been alleged that Savannah left several angry voicemails for Jessica just two days before her murder.

    FUNK-HASLAM WITH LAWLESS- In summary, Savannah Lawless was allegedly the last person Jessica was with at Rosemont Park and admitted to beating her up on the same night she was killed. Witness statements indicate that Chris Reed, Johnny Richardson and Christina Lawless may have played a part in this crime.
