On December 6, 2000 Dan Hittle was executed by the State of Texas for the murder of police officer Gerald Walker. After killing Officer Walker, Hittle proceeded to his destination where he killed Mary Goss, Richard Cook, and Raymond Gregg. He then reloaded his shotgun and shot Goss' four year old daughter Christy Condon. Hittle was prosecuted for the officer's murder but not the other four. Hittle was on parole for the murders of his adoptive parents in Minnesota, where he only spent 11 years in prison for their murders.
Police say that Jim Nisser was hit by a car while riding his bicycle to work in the early morning hours of September 11, 2008. Apparently some parts of the vehicle were left at the scene. Police say they believe the parts were from either a Jeep Cherokee or a Dodge Durango. The pics below are similar vehicles, just for a reference as to what kind of vehicle we are talking about.
Police claim that Jamie Packer was hit by a similar vehicle about 2am in July of 2010 on the dike road in Wabasha, Minnesota.
It is unknown if the cases are related in any way but because it was the same type of vehicle, same type of circumstances, I thought I would point that out.
On September 5, 2011 at about 2pm, boaters found a tan colored canvas bag floating in the Mississippi river. The boaters discovered a deceased infant girl wrapped in plastic bags.

In our Crime Connection segment, Mike and I talk about Peter Manuel, a serial killer (who was an American citizen) in Scotland in the 1950s. Manuel was a career criminal and was known to have committed hundreds of burglaries. A couple of times during his breaking and entering escapades, Peter Manuel would kill the entire family and even sexually assaulted the corpse of one young woman. Experts claim that Manuel experienced Paraphilia, which is a sexual condition that requires some form of extreme or atypical means to obtain arousal as well as climax. Apparently, physical control and necrophilia were his thing....
He was hung for his crimes on July 11, 1958.

As many as 10,000 unaccompanied minors across Europe are missing and officials fear they are victims of human trafficking or have been taken in as slaves.

From 1970 to 1973, with the help of two other boys, Wayne Henley and David Brooks, Dean Corll mutilated, tortured, raped, and killed more than 28 boys. Over 40 boys went missing during that time frame but only 28 could be directly linked to Corll. Police actually got to the point where they STOPPED looking for bodies. Outrageous!
On September 2, 1988, Cortney Clayton asked her father if she could go to the local store, about a block from her home, to buy a drink. He watched her walk to the store and then sent her older brother to go down and walk back with her. By the time her brother got to the store, she was gone. Cortney's body was found six months later almost 50 miles away. A witness went under hypnosis to see if they could remember anymore details about a young man who was leaning against the wall outside the store when Cortney was there. The man in the sketch was never identified. If you have any information that can help police close this case, please call the Jones County Sheriff at (325) 823-4604 or the Texas Rangers Cold Case Unit at (325) 795-4078
Donna Kay Cloud
Donna Cloud was in an abusive relationship and while family was trying to help her, she couldn't seem to let go. The last time anyone heard from Donna was on the evening of October 26, 2016. I spoke to Donna's father, who for the most part has had to do most of the investigating on his own. The police department failed to investigate her case for six weeks because of staffing issues. There is a lot more to this story than meets the eye. Was "Guy A" responsible for her disappearance (she WAS with him that night) or did Donna's abusive ex boyfriend have a hand in this?
