Death in the Desert: A girl walking to high school in Las Vegas was found dead after being viciously sexually assaulted. The case went cold for thirty two years until a local philanthropist donated $5,000 to a company specializing in DNA genomics - stipulating that it be used on a cold case. Soon, not one, but two murders were solved.

A Nun Killer: In 1981 an elderly nun was murdered in her bedroom. In 1992 a young man was executed for her murder. That much is certain. What is not certain is whether the convicted and executed man was really guilty.

Just a Drifter: When a twenty-two year old woman goes missing while walking her dog it doesn’t take long for solid clues to lead to a senior citizen who is a drifter. But police can’t help wondering whether a drifter in his sixties has finally committed his first murder, or whether he’s previously committed several others.

Washington Axe Murderer: A beautiful area of Seattle, popular with both locals and tourists, had its residents living in fear during the summer of 1990 as an axe murderer stalked the neighborhood and left terrifying messages inside homes.

A Word of Warning

The explicit details of these murders come directly from eyewitness accounts, interviews, police reports, court transcripts, crime scenes, and autopsy reports. They contain disturbing facts that may not be for everyone.


Chapter 1 - Death in the Desert

John Isaacson was waiting for his daughter to come home from school. He was concerned when Stephanie’s normal arrival time had passed and Stephanie still wasn't there. She always came directly home from school and if she decided to stop at a friend's house on the walk home, she would call him as soon as she got there.

Did he miss a school event? After an hour with no call from Stephanie, John called El Dorado High School to see if Stephanie had stayed after school for a club or event.

The school secretary answered the phone and informed John that Stephanie was absent from school the whole day. She said they assumed he knew where his daughter was and why she stayed home.

John tried to stay calm but immediately called Stephanie's close friends to ask if they’d seen her. Each friend said they hadn't seen her all day. Now he was really concerned, and his next phone call was to the Las Vegas Police Department.

By the early evening of June 1, 1989, John had filed a missing persons report on Stephanie, and Las Vegas MPD had initiated a search for her. The main focus of the search was the vacant lot she cut through to get to school. As the officers combed the area, John and his friends combed through the nearby desert land on horseback.

It was 8:30 pm and it was starting to get dark, but John was prepared to search all night. A friend of John's, Gary Braley yelled for John to come over. Braley had found something on the ground. When John rode up on his horse, he immediately recognized Stephanie's keys and schoolbooks in the dirt. He wanted to keep hoping Stephanie was alive but now he knew she’d been abducted.

After the discovery of Stephanie's school items, Las Vegas MPD called in a helicopter to aid in the search and deployed scent-tracking dogs in the area. It wasn’t long before the worst was confirmed. Twenty-five yards from where Gary Braley spotted Stephanie's books and keys, the police dogs found Stephanie's body.
