• FAITH KING-BASEY MISSING CALIFORNIA

        Written by Chandler Vaughn

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California teen, Faith King-Basey, missing since April 27, 2017.

    FAITH KING-BASEY – Faith’s Mother, Jessica King, was concerned for her daughter’s safety in the weeks/months leading up to her disappearance.

    Faith, a Grant High School student, had been receiving luxurious gifts, expensive dresses and Louis Vuitton hand bags from an older admirer, possibly online.

    Like a typical 15-year-old who wanted space, Faith wasn’t forthcoming about the origin of the lavish gifts. She reassured her Mom that he was just a friend, helping with the cost of tutoring.  Jessica warned Faith to be careful and continued to be watchful of her daughter.

    MISSING PERSON – The night before her disappearance, Faith slept at a friend’s house. The next day, she called her Mom saying she had a headache and planned to come home, but never arrived.

    DISCOVERY PARK – It was a Thursday evening, the sun set at 7:32 p.m.

    Faith was last seen taking photos at a boat launch near Discovery Park, somewhere between Richards Blvd. and Old Town Sac.  After that point, Faith vanished.

    It’s been 3 long months. Spring is now summer…Have you seen Faith?

  • 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.

    KRYSTIE LEEANN STUART – Have you seen Krystie?

    • Age: 29 (at time of disappearance) Age 32 on Birthday April 13, 2017

  • MISSING GIRLS OF THE DESERT

       Written by Chandler Vaughn

    SANDY GILES UPDATE – November 2017 – Human remains found in the Sonoran desert near the town of Earp, California may be that of Sandy Giles.  For updated story enter “Sandy Giles” in search box.  Or, read original story of Sandy’s disappearance below.

    EARP, Calif. – Sandy Giles 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
    • Age: 44
    • Height: 5’7″
    • Weight: 180
    • Hair Color: Bleached blonde
    • Eyes: Blue
    • Tattoos: 1) Dog tag with chain on ankle says “Sandy”.  2) Yellow infinity symbol on left wrist.

  • 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.
    • Submit an Anonymous Tip at 1-800-78-CRIME or www.wetip.com

  • 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.

  • California_state_flag  Written by Chandler Vaughn

    CALIFORNIA: HOW TO REPORT A MISSING PERSON – You may initiate a Missing Persons Report of any adult or juvenile by contacting your local law enforcement agency. Contrary to popular belief, law enforcement agencies in California do not require a person to wait a specific period of time before reporting a missing person.

    If you have to report a missing person, be thorough. When a person is reported missing in California, it is best for the family to make contact at all four levels of law enforcement. This is imperative to ensure the name of the missing person be logged into city, county, state and nationwide search systems, if possible.

    List of Missing Persons Resources:

    • Nat’l Missing and Unidentified Persons System: WWW.NAMUS.GOV
    • California Attorney General’s Office: WWW.OAG.CA.GOV
    • Nat’l Center for Missing and Exploited Children: 1-800-THE-LOST
    • Missing Children’s Clearinghouse: 1-800-222-FIND
    • FACEBOOK: Another way to highlight your missing loved one’s case is to visit “Missing Persons of America” and “Locate the Missing” on Facebook. Here you can post free ads for missing persons…and re-post frequently, to keep your search alive.

    CALIFORNIA LAW ENFORCEMENT– Our law enforcement agencies do an excellent job of finding and solving missing persons and murder cases. However, many new cases arise each day. Diligent action from families and communities help NamUs and smaller agencies in California stay up-to-date.

    UNMATCHED DNA– Even in this day and age, human remains go unidentified for years.

    ISAIAH MARSH– For example, take the well publicized case of Isaiah Marsh…May he rest in Peace.

    • First, Isaiah was reported missing in Nevada County, California.
    • Next, Isaiah’s truck was found in Riverside County, nine hours away…abandoned.
    • Finally, Isaiah’s remains were located, but continued to be unidentified in Riverside County for four years.
    • Four years later– Isaiah’s unidentified remains were matched to his Missing Person Report/DNA originally filed in Nevada County.

    • California Counties– It is wise to start with the county where the missing person was last seen / known to be. There are hundreds of micro-towns in California, so tiny they cannot be recognized on a map. If you are just starting your search, begin with county first.
    • State of California– Immediately following a missing persons report, a sample of the missing person’s DNA should be made available to the The State of California. Unidentified remains (from anywhere in the State or USA) can then be matched when located, rather than years later.

    MISSING ADULTS- If your child is a missing adult and you feel concerned, do not hesitate to file a report with the city or county in which your child was last seen. If your child is in distress, it’s the one way to help find them.

    Keep Searching…True Love Never Dies.

  • Unsolved: Danielle Bertolini / Sheila Franks

    FORTUNA, Calif – In May 2015, a human skull found along the Eel River near Fortuna was determined to be 23 year-old Danielle Bertolini, citizen of Maine. Danielle had been missing since Feb. 10, 2014. Danielle’s death is being investigated as a homicide.

    Danielle Bertolini’s case may be related to the disappearance of another young woman, 38 year-old Sheila Franks, who was last seen Jan. 11, 2014, just weeks before Danielle vanished.

    Fortuna Police, as well as Humboldt Co. Sheriff’s Dept. believe both women were last seen with the same person of interest, a 44 year-old Fortuna man, who remains nameless as the investigation continues.

    Sheila Franks has never been found.

    HUMBOLDT CO. SHERIFF- If you have any information relating to either case, Danielle Bertolini or Sheila Franks, please call Humboldt Co. Sheriff at 707-445-7251 or the Anonymous Tip Line at 707-268-2539.

    True Crime California offers deep sympathy to the family of Danielle Bertolini and continued hope and strength to the family of Sheila Franks.

    To Danielle Bertolini’s Mother…Excellent Job. I can’t think of a more difficult task to be completed in one’s lifetime: to find your child’s remains, yourself.  Truly, this is an example of a Mother’s full measure of devotion to her child. True Excellence. TRUE LOVE. I wish your tenacity to all Moms who’s children are missing. True Love Never Dies.
