In the secluded darkness of an early spring night, Lisa Marie Kimmell and her sporty black Honda vanished from a Wyoming desert highway. Frantic, Lisa?s family and friends mounted a tireless search for the missing 18-year old across three states. The answer to Lisa?s disappearance was found a week later in the icy waters of the North Platte River. The first search was one of love and futility. After Lisa was found murdered, a second search was launched. A search for justice. Ron and Sheila Kimmell were determined to find their daughter's murderer despite the many jurisdictional and bureaucratic obstacles they encountered. It would take years before the mystery unraveled and the Kimmell's discovered truths more horrifying than anyone could imagine. Numerous similar homicides remain unsolved in the western states. Are they connected in some way? Can Ron Sheila's relentless pursuit for justice help find answers for other families?--back cover.

For readers of Jon Krakauer and Douglas Preston, the critically acclaimed author and journalist Jon Billman's fascinating, in-depth look at people who vanish in the wilderness without a trace and those eccentric, determined characters who try to find them. These are the stories that defy conventional logic. The proverbial vanished without a trace incidences, which happen a lot more (and a lot closer to your backyard) than almost anyone thinks. These are the missing whose situations are the hardest on loved ones left behind. The cases that are an embarrassment for park superintendents, rangers and law enforcement charged with Search & Rescue. The ones that baffle the volunteers who comb the mountains, woods and badlands. The stories that should give you pause every time you venture outdoors. Through Jacob Gray's disappearance in Olympic National Park, and his father Randy Gray who left his life to search for him, we will learn about what happens when someone goes missing. Braided around the core will be the stories of the characters who fill the vacuum created by a vanished human being. We'll meet eccentric bloodhound-handler Duff and R.C., his flagship purebred, who began trailing with the family dog after his brother vanished in the San Gabriel Mountains. And there's Michael Neiger North America's foremost backcountry Search & Rescue expert and self-described "bushman" obsessed with missing persons. And top researcher of persons missing on public wildlands Ex-San Jose, California detective David Paulides who is also one of the world's foremost Bigfoot researchers. It's a tricky thing to write about missing persons because the story is the absence of someone. A void. The person at the heart of the story is thinner than a smoke ring, invisible as someone else's memory. The bones you dig up are most often metaphorical. While much of the book will embrace memory and faulty memory -- history -- The Cold Vanish is at its core a story of now and tomorrow. Someone will vanish in the wild tomorrow. These are the people who will go looking.

This book documents the heroic efforts of some of the nation’s most prolific cold case detectives. In collaboration the authors, these professionals share their insights, skills, and resources, using their most compelling cold cases as illustrations. The authors examine how cold case investigations differ from standard investigations and why cold case detectives sometimes have success where earlier investigators failed. They also discuss some of the pitfalls of reopening long-unsolved crimes, such as lost or compromised evidence and the difficulty of getting accurate information from witnesses who must rely on fading memories. Looking to the future, the authors discuss new technology that may someday allow investigators to drastically enhance surveillance videos and create a facial recognition database as accurate as DNA analysis and fingerprints. Both true crime readers and fellow law enforcement professionals will find the stories and expert insights described in this book to be fascinating and instructive.

Justice For Jack

Sqi Taylor (pronounced SKY) has lived an amazing life, including over ten years of work in law-enforcement, 20 years working with both juvenile and adult offenders and being a foster parent to over 60 youth. She has worked with prisons, directed two non-profit agencies, owned her own business and was once nominated as a "Woman of Distinction" in her community. In Casper, Wyoming she and a handful of believers founded a Therapeutic Riding Academy for people with physical, mental, emotional, financial or spiritual disabilities. Her pen name is an "on-air name" her daughter Lacy gave her, while working as a radio personality as a second job to make ends meet. Interestingly enough, "Sqi" was a female action hero in a card collection of crime fighting characters. Writing mostly as a passionate hobby for over 30 years, this was the "ONE" story she was absolutely compelled to share with the world. A tantalizing, 23 year-old unsolved homicide case, turned into over six years of research, ultimately leading back to a much older unsolved murder in Wyoming in 1949 and a mysterious death in Oklahoma in the 1970's. Eventually, all roads led back to, or were connected with the person who was finally arrested, tried and convicted of Jack Humphrey's murder, nearly twenty-nine years after his death. Whenever innocent blood is spilled in a cold, bizarre manner the emotional, mental and physical devastation is made even greater by either intentional or unintentional actions we naturally blame on "the system." Sad to say, it's not the system, just some people in it, the choices and decisions they make. Mishaps, mistakes, legal or local bias, laziness, political or personal agenda's more often than we realize, only repeatedly, re-victimize families or people we love or that love us. What followed the gruesome, senseless, slaying of Jack Humphrey was one of the most shocking, cruel and riveting persecutions of a victim's family anyone could imagine. How did the murder of an honest, hard-working family man of average means, become such a politically sensitive, unsolved murder case and remain so, for over a quarter of a century? That's the billion dollar question you ultimately must answer for yourself Throughout this tumultuous journey it's clear that good men and women then and now, risk careers, their families, lives and reputations every day, either fighting for truth and justice or falling to the temptation of the oldest and still deadliest of sins: Lust, Lies, Sloth, Greed and Murder! For any one left to navigate through a very tricky, risky, tedious and complex maze, filled with paper and people, Justice for Jack is a must read!
