I love that have makes my heart sore and good luck in it. That's amazing, can do it now onto the story of how my nephew cat food cat became a part of my family of ever since our childhood cat had passed away. Charlie had been bugging, my parents, let her get a new cap at the time,
Parents owned a tire store in one day, one of their employees brought a young cat to work and told my dad that he could take the cat if you wanted it and if it, if not, he would just put it outside his house to feed the coyotes. That's fucked up for the lux please closure, and also in parentheses. I know so sad and really master of Lee was basically like. You have to take this. Take this cat, I'm gonna kill it, while my dad made cage out of shopping, cart in the garage of the tire store and put the cat in their little. You then called Charlie and told her. He had a cat that you get out of it have if she wanted it, but he wasn't sure she would because there was something wrong with it. Just software my dad was joking and always makes dark, slash, messed up, jokes about our paths and such what is actually a total safety when it comes to animals- and this is a huge reason why Charlie and I are such animal lovers and spoil our pets so much all that's, unlike my dad too yup, he lay talks a lot of shit about here.

I totally get it so Jaso her dad the total safety. Of course Of course, Charley was so excited and rushed to the store to get her new fur baby. She goes see the cat and what was supposedly wrong with it, but immediately knew that nothing was actually wrong with him. He simply was Polly Tactile, meaning He has extra toes. He has twenty eight toes to be exactly what the fuck, how also tied with the world record cat for most toes la one, brick and honor. That's crazy! That's amazing, and he was given the appropriate name thumbs. Only women with she took thumbs home and they became instant best friends or make well
a little while later the employee that gave us thumbs was still working for my parents and one day they got the terrible news that this repulsive piece of human garbage had chase down and stopped his ex girlfriend car with his own and shot her in the chest before turning the gun on himself high. They were both pronounced dead after being rushed, by hospital by first responders. He took this poor woman away from her loved ones and left their seven year.

My dad later told me, he got a weird feeling when this employee lost it at work one day and was king for a reason to fire him at the time. While, while I know it's, it's really hard to fire some yeah, I remember when I worked at a salon. There is like a really big situation going on and liked this girl needed to be fired, but my boss, who worked so closely with, was, like you, don't understand like all that we want to jump through the idea.

Thank you so much for that, though, is so needed. That was so. This has been the most mercury in retrograde weak, and there was just like that. Just soothed mice Now I'm in Germany so asked me how I feel about naturally very easily vessel with a lot of people. It is even listening to the sexy me podcast, which I mentioned it alot go! Listen to

You wouldn't have only using follow and I think they're they're, so our people yacht in fighting against mercury and retrograde. This week's, I feel like a kindred with them, yet so go listen to them because there are some. She has an amazing patria onto. Oh, really is Maison bonus upsurge of effect and we donate to its. I can listen to that area because I dont nature, but yeah so just plug it back. There really good pilot, also they rallied who need our blog, but I mean whatever I want to plug, no matter what My next point is called: if I only knew what you would do in the future, written by a brat child may. who knows. My name is brat.
This place, I will mention in this story- is a super small community of just nine hundred people. So, even though I no longer live there, I would rather just not put my name on it. I feel you know that's too discernible. I am by no means a writer, but I think you guys will enjoy this particular brand of weird. My family moved to Gore Oklahoma. Ninety ninety eight, what an aim and that's what drew me into You ve gotta think go. I didn't even know that existed at a neither Gore Oklahoma. As soon as I started, I was like well put that into the folder area, so I was seven time and was already so sad to leave the only place I had ever known for this backwoods monstrosity was the adventurers child and I didn't mind the woods part as much as I mind it being my by myself. Most of the time my mom quickly secured a job at a restaurant. Not far from my new home called the stake house. I bet you can't guess what they sold their chicken Obviously, to give a small background into why the events unfolded as they did. I feel it necessary to start with my new home. The house was on two acres of the house, was onto acres and super tiny.
My dad was a retired Vietnam bat and still suffered lingering effects from his three Torres unknown. While that will do something my dad's of Vietnam, but now my grandpa, he was very medicated and would sleep for what seemed like twenty hours a day. He was violent and even though he never hurt me personally, he didn't treat my mother to the same courtesy. He would Anyone who had listened, not quote there are only two women in my life. I haven't hit my other and my daughter, Jesus Lowood, slew, quite a proclamation, so he was a peach this being said he couldn't hold down a job, so my mom was who feel it on that front. She would go to work and leave me at home, but I was so afraid to wake up my dad that I would make her come get me and bring me to our job brat child. I know that's not even Brad. I know that's it sad now you just like nervous. So this is where I met James kid. Well, I believe, as I said, who at the time was a cook at the stake house. No Jimmy as I called him was kind to me. He was
super tall, like seven foot, Suki, six foot, seven and two hundred and nine pounds, and then she wrote in parentheses I looked at. I was going to say that very specific. He was two hundred and nine pounds I think drowned about also six foot, seven. How will tell us at camper again he was I remember when I look it up. I think he's like right around their use is a little time. I think. Ok, you maybe six eight. I think anyways. I can remember once that when I was being a kid Wemyss, nine o six now get em I can remember ones that I was being kid running around the kitchen of this establishment. Again Bradshaw hoped he accidentally spilled hot Greece on the fire on the back of my legs that will like her I'm not destroyed him. What leg he was so upset. He actually cried when he told my mama. I don't blame him. I can also remember him picking me up. I may feet and swinging me upside down. Quite a bit. Keep in mind, I did not fear this person has a child's now to them
You see, bet my mom and I moved away after two years back to our original town and left my doubting Gore. The stake has closed its doors and we didn't really think much of it until, ass, a teenager. I was watching forensic files with my mom and James Kid, while showed up as an episode, I asked my mom if this was the same guy, because my child brain only vaguely remember, I recognized him. She said yeah, I believe so he had read. ten killed a woman and Tulsa. He also killed her husband or ex husband. I can't remember, but it doesn't stop there. He tore. to the house with them inside and then shot the guy who stopped to report the fire wholly wow He was arrested, obviously because he had went on a date with that poor lady and when she refused to sleep with him he was up and she refused to sleep with him. He was highly recognised. but because of his size anyway, you should look he's not a serial killer per se, but he is a crop human he's in prison without
her role and from what I read it. They haven't treated him while he's lost all of his teeth. He only had fourteen to start with and he tried to apply for dentures, but they declined his application because he eats just fine and has gained fifty pounds, so they didn't want to use taxpayers money on him. And to that I say thank you, stingy bitches anyway. I had no way of knowing the same gentle giant of my childhood would be capable of something so horrendous it's not even the only story I have of meeting a killer, but that's another ballgame right and other fellow well. I hope you enjoy this story. I love listening to you both, and even if you don't pick this, I'm glad I got to tell someone who wouldn't judge me like its contagious or something for being in close contact with these crap humans. Keep it weird, but not so whether you totally just to use up well mechanic.
started over, but not the way that you totally just lose all common decency and turned from the jolly green giant into the psycho, murdering Jain of nightmares. Never keep it that weird thanks for reed. Why? Oh, that's not! I also just elected opera, quick in the first article that came said, toothless murderer loses bid for Densher that was the first thing that the cable announcing. Alright, I want to see their. It is. That's nuts, that's not toothless murderer. That's fucked up wow! Thank you! Brad! low, but rather video brat. That's truly outrage. Allow he's like terrifying. Truly, truly, truly truly trip arrange a truly cheaper labour. Cannot that's not wow allow he he really changed, he sure dead and from thousand and four to two thousand and eighteen may lot. He looks like a totally different person, so my next one is going to be called murder conviction without a body. Oh how highly I now shallow. My name is magazine.
and after a ready to tell you the story of what happened to my cousin Courtney, Hoag Hoag, Hague, OSHA hold her great Courtney, was born about nine before me. So we are essentially irish twins but of the cousin source. We spent the first nine or so years of our lives living not far from each other. In long Beach, California, where we spent summers at the beach and swimming in our grandmothers pool we attended school and girl scouts together, had sleep over all the time and spent every holiday with each other's families. We are inseparable if I warping she wore purple. If I was, if my baby doll had blonde hair, hers had brown hair, you got the idea the summer before six grade, my family moved from southern California to this Pacific, Northwest and Courtney, and I grew apart. While I was focused on academics and performing arts. She drifted towards the wrong claret crowd and wound up getting pretty heavily into drug abuse.
My heart and while I tried to keeping contact through letters and phone calls, we click to quickly realized. We had less and less in common. I hate when that happened. I now, as nobody is like you know, a lot of people have had that happen, so I totally even just like close friend yeah just like drifts, you realize you're, just not the same people any Martin. By the time I graduated high school in two thousand and two I haven't heard from her. Quite so time, I joined the military bad us shortly, therefore, thereafter and moved frequently because that's life in the military,
and by two thousand and nine. I was stationed in Cardiac Alaska about a week before my birthday in September that year my mom called me up at my desk, something she rarely did unless it was an emergency and asked. If I was sitting down. Oh that's ever good, I could tell she was upset. She told me that she had just heard from my uncle her younger brother. Not they think that Courtney had been killed by her boyfriend. Oh no, I collapsed. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I quickly book to fight home, to meet up with my mom in Washington and then a fight, a flight for both of us to fly to California to meet up with my aunt uncle and grandfather, as it turns out at a party a couple of weeks before a few of Courtney. Friends were there One of them looked visibly upset so her friend ass. What was wrong and she said that she had just come back from Arizona where she thought she saw Courtney dead in a hotel room. What's in that, it was a man named Christopher Rousseau's faults, her friends, she hired you out an alarming one. It was like.
think. I saw someone dead and I think I know exactly whose fault it is, but here I am at this party with the thoughts party. I guess like what the fuck up so master. While her friend said she had to tell some good friends, the friend said she was too scared that Christopher would do something to her. She told the police, that's a horrible yeah, whatever you're funny peacocks got it exclusively stream. Classic sitcoms, like the obvious boxing recreation and soon have met plus pact pick up regional comedies, like eighty bio say by the Bell for all Europe's lucid comedy phase, could a Peacock dvd comp and get started whatever you're funny peacocks got it exclusively stream classic sitcoms, like the obvious boxing recreation and soon have meant plus pact pick up regional comedies, like eighty via say about about for all Europe through the poverty phase, could a peacock dvd com and get started
instead she wrote a written confession and turned it over to her friend, along with a plastic tub of Courtney. Clothes is very bizarre that tub contained a bloody clothing and a man's glove. What the fuck, I'm sorry, whites different. immediately, took it to my uncle, who informed police and then called my mom and grandfather. My aunt her mom still didn't know. Oh my god. Why When my mom and I landed in long beach, we met up with my uncle grandfather and my mom's middle sister to go. Tell my aunt what had happened to her dot all know when she opened the door and saw of us she knew immediately what was going on. She told us that it was a strange for coordinated, go missing for weeks on end and that this was the longest. She had been gone she said she hadn't seen Courtney and almost two months she told us that she had come home from work one day in July to find her house was a complete mess, would tables and chairs over earned and random objects scattered about her dog was visit,
We shall now. Why was a small trail of blood leading from the bedroom to the front door? What is held we in why did nothing, I'm all carries the next sentence. Apparently this was a com occurrence in coordinating Christopher relationship. No, that's not a common! That's! Ok leg! Oh my god I stress out, but it's like what is the moms was do like those entering went all diner awful. This is why we are going to terrible situation of an he was controlling and often tried to limit her contact with anyone, especially men. This comes into play as a factor in her death, because Christopher was jealous of her relationship of another man, one or Roscoe Roscoe yeah. She was also present time of Courtney, stuff or who will open up. I got I just get pregnant, you doesn't so this person was also present at the time of Courtney, Statics easy from what I was told. The written confession from Courtney spread described how she had met Kristen. She had met Christopher
Courtney at a hotel and tenth where she had allowed Courtney to use her phone. When Christopher found out that she had told her, which had told her mom where she was, he lost his temper and essentially beat the life out of her lights. Ah, he demanded that her friend leave, which she did for a few hours to give him time to come love her friend didn't know. Courtney was dead at this point and when she returned to the hotel room, Courtney appeared to be asleep on the floor, but there was blood all around her like that's, not Christopher, Christopher, handed her friend the been with her clothes and told her to leave. Much of the story is detailed in the notes from Christopher Appeal, which, links below wow by the time my mom and I made it to California. Christopher- was already in jail and Orange County on drug charge, so he had a what a whit. So he had we
had to wait, awhile for him to be extradited to Arizona for his murder trial. Although the Maricopa County police conducted a thorough search of the area, they were unable to locate Courtney body, it is assumed that Christopher dumped her in the Arizona desert- oh my car, and by the
I'm it was brought anyone's attention. It had been months, so her body was either loss to the elements are animals. That being said, it took almost five years for Rousseau to be brought to trial for what he did to Courtney and one on September. Third, two thousand and fourteen he was found guilty of felony kidnapping, premeditated murder and felony murder, and then she links it. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Since then, he has tried to appeal his conviction. Any completely revolting facebook page has been set up. Honestly. Facebook is worse for everything. Cesspool has been set up in support of his appeal and his named ad free, Christopher Russo FUCK as the date of the add at the date of this email. If the page has over five thousand six hundred followers, here's a link to
two thousand and six between appeal, which contains details of what really happened that day and much to my delight shows that his appeal was officially denied good guys. We ve since had a memorial for Courtney, but her mom still struggles with fine enclosure without having her body. I can't imagine I always say that whenever we cover guess where the body is missing, it's always the worst that actually young case the dietary pops into my head, because its two separate things to grief your young man, half of your child and then the fact that you have no idea where this baby is that you brought into you're lying what's happening to like, I can't saw them it's too much.
We all are so angered that someone could take her away from us like that, and it breaks my heart that my aunt has lost her baby. I've lost one of my best friends, even though we had our differences, I still it back at our shared childhood. With fondness, I've attach some pictures of us together twinning, I'm the one with the street blonde hair and doing girl scout stuff. This is how I remember her whole. I'm not sure if this is enough of a story for a full episode, but I hope that you consider featuring it somehow, because her story is one that shouldn't be forgotten amidst the judgment and critical. I'm a breach of Rousseau's quota unclothed fan base on Facebook, and I hope that one day he comes to his senses and tells us where she is so that we can have a proper burial for her thanks so much? I love you guys. You're podcast has gotten me through some of the darkest times, and I am truly grateful for your sisterhood all take are Ah, you do. They lay heart like that grab my soul. I learnt anything honestly. Thank you for sharing that with us.
I'm so sorry, are you lost your larger? That's terrific, like that. That's terrific and honest I can, let's all send good vibes said he comes to his senses and says where she is because what is the point civilized, torturing, a family, more, that's Yosemite that supersonic exactly like, not second away. You know- and you know, tat exact- that so much that's awful guys. We're adorable! I know you guys are like I can't like she was beautiful. Shrilly was hey. This annex one is called Yede shot in the testicle yeah, though, so nobody will bring a back up. I suppose now resume its findings would they are so hello? My name is Amy sounds like Amy cause, it's Amy with a why I think she said we can use our last name her lasting sorts. Almost fourteen years ago, I woke up in the hospital after being shot. I can tell you what being shot feels like why
it does not initially hurt. It feels like a lot of pressure and very hot. The pain comes when the adrenaline decreases and your brain finally realised what has happened in my situation. The pain finally came back when people showed up to help me like my brain, told my body. It's ok, to feel now and felt I did tat make so much sense. Also already written this beautiful I've told this story several times, but I've never written it down the only written record of this or the newspaper newspaper articles found online many and which are wrong because the writer pierce together scuse me piece together their own story or only heard his side of the story as if his side of the story actually mattered, I was shot with a three hundred and fifty seven revolver may fourth, two thousand and seven even at that time, Ex boyfriend destined anchors and Missoula Montana. Please use all names if you don't want to be called out, don't fuckin do bad things while it Oh just a month before, before my twenty first birthday June. Second, ash image
when I too, and a very true one at that. What was the bullet went through my left palm out my wrist through my left, breast went between my sternum and my heart through my liver, my diaphragm and my right long before stopping between my ribs and skin underneath my right arm pet. While why the fuck, oh my, I need a second while not is insane wow, ah doctors later, the bullet out and inserted a drainage tube in the same location for reference? A three fifty seven bullet is exactly the with I have between my heart and Burnham. I often wonder how I am alive that like a huge bullet, that some kind of universe interval Jim serious that its exact well well, that's not some just shocked dusty. Data for about two years. Prior to that night, we met during our freshman year of college. I regret
So much of that for so many reasons being shot set aside, we moved in together way too quickly. Story of those two years is very similar to every domestic abuse case.

Yelling hope for began. Someone help me. I've been shot for. People came out of a word homely good coastal areas, good Pullyu, Mihail a bid scenario. I later found
now it was too young couples that had just graduated college side. No recently, one of them has reached out to me feel so good to make lifelong. a strange situation arose. They asked me I was shot. I said I think my chest something's wrong with my hand. The Ladys helped me on the ground. One of the guys took off his flannel. To put it on my chest and the other went to talk to dusty, who at that point, was up against a brick wall with the gun to his head a while I put, can you imagine having to intervene in this ash and situation is terrifying.

My family and friends can not handled the death of another young per hour. I am like this is a motion.

I started listening your podcast a few months ago and have almost caught up. You keep me company during my ten our ships that a machine shop only downside is work of a night shift in the whole places. Almost empty sounds like a dream. Then I'll have to drive home in the middle of the night through the empty town and right past,
Ok, now I live behind a cemetery while, needless to say, I drive home every night, like demons were following me. Fortunately, the drivers only seven minutes so My name is Sarah, the worst. Sarah, it's two a's. I know I've never seen Sarah, like that. I like it either way. I like it a lot you can might use because I don't have anything to high level of the horror I live in Washington, pretty close to Seattle. I was born in Finland and moved to the. U S with my family or NOS eighteen. Let me tell you that I am the oldest of nine children. I know you think, that's crazy, but hey my doubt as one of fourteen kids. By the way, big families are definitely not a normal thing and fair that's a huge family. Anyway, let's get to my story. About how I skeet away from a possible murder and was stupid enough to go back. This all happened when I was about sixteen six years have passed and I hope I now have a then I got my brains back. My family lived in the middle of Finland in a relatively big city. Actually not there.
big but big for a small country. Are I love that lakes thought processes such as it is, but you know what that will get attic. Our neighbourhood was right to the edge of the city and behind that was just woods and some more words. Then, of course, there were a couple of lakes, because Finland is just fill with the whip filled with woods, and Lake saying Finland is just fill, does like ants are like a roof over. There was a path in the woods for jogging biking and what not? In winter there was a ski trail for cross country, skiing I love cross across country skiing and when skiing almost every day until the snow, melted. Of course, I use that path, because it was right behind our house part of the path headlights, but I skeet everywhere. There is not a lot of southern Finland during the winter months or actually you don't see that precious son at all for a couple months, so it was really darkest sin and I had a headlamp to light by LE by way. Well, let us not about us always fine. I enjoyed my skiing work out in the fresh air. My mom was a little worried that I'd hurt myself in the dark. I promised to always care
my phone now that I think about it. My phone was mostly dead. Some big Brent, some big brain time you did the smiley face, was held with the glasses. I started seeing a creepy man on the part of the path that didn't have light. No, no! No! No! No about you slowly, walking on the side of the path, almost hidden in the woods, no I'm leaving once he came closer and started talking to me. I don't remember what he said, but that doesn't matter. The disturbing thing was that he spoke in the first place how dare he why I in Finland, you do not talk to us, dangers and stay away far away from people. Can I come to Finland, Now I that's like I made out o my heart went crazy and I flew passed him like my skis, had rocket engines attached. I decided not to go that way, anymore, smart, a week later, I woke up to seeing news of a murder young
When a young woman had been found on the path, just a mile from my home, raped and murdered cash, that was the spot where I flew pass the creepy guy oh now, my mom was really worried me going skiing down that path. holds her. I would only stand the lighted parts and not go in the direction or the murder happened. Oh my god, I would decrease ability. You know you're, not my mama, and happy at all, but I sneaked out and when skiing on the path where murder happened the day before her all are all. I guess. Who is more important than safety has been split. I e I continued skiing in nothing happened. There are at least two reported rapes and the only got nothing happened for them. There were at least who reported rapes in the area during the next month or so, but the dumb ass bitch, I am I continued skiing like nothing had happened, I don't know where I left my brain. I see where they in your home at something happened about a month later I was again going skiing, but suddenly didn't feel like going. I'm not sure why
and go but ended up playing. Mario super smashed brothers of my brothers, that's irony the very next morning I found but there was another murder again. A young woman was found, raped and murdered on the path, but this time it was even closer to my home on the part where I speed every day most shit, my pants yeah, the murder had happened around seven p m and that's when I usually one scheme asking that night, I would have seen the murder or gotten murdered hope that's tariff, guess I would have most likely been the victim I stopped seeing for that whole winter. Smart choice! at last. It was March and the snow is melting anyways. But honestly, I was just too scared to go on that path. The next year I lived in Germany and then move to the. U S, I never got a chance to go skiing again on that path. I'm glad I didn't, because knowing me, I would have gotten back gone back there
next year. As far as I know, the case is still open and no one has been charged with those murders. That's terrifying! On you're gonna go back, I'm stressed I'm pretty sure but the creepy man knows something, but the police were not able to find him. My google search didn't give me any information and I have to stay not knowing what happened South creepy guy is still me area. I've been quick, he's been quiet for a few years. I am glad to be the four thousand six hundred and fifty and I'm glad to be the four thousand five six hundred and fifty miles from that place in West Coast, Washington, where quoting quote nothing.
