The disappearance of Monique Daniels was always sketchy to me. I always wondered if the stepfather got rid of her. If she ran away as her parents claim, then why did they make the sister write fake letters to family members as Monique? I don't believe the claim that it was to help the mother. Something doesn't add up.

Monique has was last seen by a neighbor on June 2, 1992 in Moore, Oklahoma. The witness told authorities that she was loading clothes into a blue Chevrolet pickup truck driven by an unidentified Caucasian male. She has never been heard from again.

Monique was abused by her biological father, who is now in prison for sex offenses. By 1992, she lived with her mother, Candyce Daniels, stepfather, Charles "Chuck" Daniels, her three siblings and her two half-siblings. She was the oldest child in the family. Her stepfather was a sergeant in the Air Force and her mother was also in the military.

She disappeared while her mother and two of her siblings, Angelique and Bryan, were touring with their church choir for a week. When they returned home, Chuck simply said "She's gone again." Angelique would later state that the house, which was normally kept very clean, was in a state of disarray. Beer cans and cigarette butts were lying out, and there was an empty pregnancy test box sitting on the bathroom counter.

Monique's parents didn't report her as a missing person because, they said, they believed she had run away from home. She had run away earlier after she became pregnant and her parents forced her to have an abortion, but her best friend convinced her to return home.

In January 1993, Monique's maternal aunt contacted the police to inquire about her case and learned no missing persons report had been filed. She asked Candyce about it, and two days later, Candyce said Monique had called home and spoken to her younger sister, Angelique, and said she was safe.

A week after that, a letter supposedly from Monique, postmarked Dallas, Texas, arrived in the mail. A second letter arrived in September 1993. The letters said Monique had gotten married and given birth to a daughter named Chelsea, and she and her husband and child they were currently in Alaska but frequently traveled for his job.

Nothing further was heard. Monique's aunt asked the police to check the handwriting on the letters and see if it was really hers. The day before Candyce was supposed to bring them to the police for the examination, the letters and some other items were stolen in a reported burglary at the Daniels family home.

Chuck reportedly said the house was "so much better" and "tranquil" in the aftermath of Monique's disappearance. Angelique stated her mother and stepfather seemed to "erase" Monique from the home; for example, they prohibited their children from talking about their missing sister, and had new family portraits taken to replace the displayed ones that had Monique in them.

In January 1994, Angelique ran away from home and took a bus to Michigan to live with her aunt. When she left, Candyce and Chuck reported her missing immediately. After Angelique arrived at her aunt's home, she filed criminal complaints against her mother and stepfather, alleging physical and mental abuse. (Candyce and Chuck later pleaded no contest to the charges.)

Angelique also told the police that Chuck had made her write the letters they said were from Monique, and that he drove her to Texas so they could mail them. The phone call had been a fabrication as well. Angelique said Chuck had convinced her to go along with his plan so they could provide reassurance for Candyce, who, he said, had become suicidal in the wake of her oldest daughter's disappearance.

When the police asked Chuck about Angelique's allegations, he admitted they were all true. Candyce finally filed a missing persons report at this time. Neither of them would agree to take a polygraph test about Monique's case.

According to Monique's sister and her best friend, Candyce and Chuck were very strict and Monique was often in trouble. One of Monique and Angelique's brothers, Andrew, also alleged there was child abuse in the home. He stated that on the day of Monique's disappearance, she and her stepfather had been fighting. Chuck decided to go on a spontaneous fishing trip with his sons, which was a common event in the family, and told them to say goodbye to Monique.

According to Andrew, Chuck only let them say goodbye to her through her cracked bedroom door. When Andrew looked in, he saw Monique sitting cross-legged and unmoving on the floor. She didn't say anything to him. Andrew's younger brother, Charles Daniels Jr., told a different story, saying he hugged Monique goodbye and she told him she was sorry she couldn't join them.

The others left to go fishing in the rain, without their fishing poles, and according to Andrew, Chuck drove for two hours in one direction, stopped at a fast food restaurant, then drove back home. He parked the car in the garage and left it there with the boys inside for approximately an hour while he was inside the house.

Chuck then let the boys inside, told them he was going to look for Monique, and locked them in his bedroom for two days. One of Monique's other brothers recalled this incident and noted that there was an oil barrel in the back of Chuck's truck at the time.

When questioned by the media about Monique's siblings' allegations, Chuck and Candyce denied them and claimed Angelique was mentally unstable and unreliable and that both she and Andrew have substance abuse issues, something Angelique and Andrew have both denied.

Monique's parents, who now live in Florida, have refused to make any further statements. They have not been named as suspects in her case, but police did dig up the yard at their former home to see if Monique was buried there. Her case remains unsolved.


Edit: her Crime Watch episode. Her parents act sketchy when they're questioned about Monique.

Not one single mystery (at least on the surface), but the disappearances covered in the Missing 411 series of books and films really fascinates me. Every case involved has circumstances that make them stand out from other disappearances. The person is there one moment, then gone the next. They all have happened in either national parks or forests. The area they disappear in usually is close to granite, often in or near granite bolder fields. Search and rescue dogs are unable to track them. Clothing is often found removed, or if the person/body is found their clothing is on wrong or inside-out. If a body is found it's often far away from the point of disappearance and in an area not easily accessible. If a body is found the cause of death cannot be determined. Sudden weather usually follows the disappearance, often counter to projected forecasts. If the person is found alive they can't remember what happened to them or what they did while they were missing. And if their body is found it's often in an area that has been previously and thoroughly searched before, as if placed there to be found.
Probably just glow-in-the-dark/military shit. People seeing stuff they shouldn't and government agencies doing what they have to in order to ensure secrecy.

The story around this image is weird, though. Can't remember everything, but some dude and his daughter in a Crown vic matching the image disappeared without a trace and the vehicle burned. This image surfaced shortly after.

It's actually from a movie but I still don't like it.

Burger Chef murders:

The unnecessary complication of abducting, then relocating 4 employees is what makes this one creepy. Whoever was behind the murders was particularly brutal, too. Frustratingly, the restaurant was cleaned by the next work shift, potentially sabotaging the scene.

The Yogurt Shop murders is kind of similar. Four people are murdered, but instead of being relocated, the yogurt shop is set ablaze. To me, the creepiest part is how one of the bodies was positioned, implying the victim was singled out or attempted to resist, either her attackers or death itself.

This is so sad. Did anyone check to see if she had ever given birth in her lifetime, and check the DNA of all the children buried in that area?
Probably wouldn't have turned up anything. Very little talked about for obvious reasons, but Mother's Day is one of the days of the year with the highest number of suicides. Several different demographics account for these but the largest group?

Various "green men" from churches abbeys and cathedrals from around the UK (though they appear throughout Europe), archaeologists suggest they're a symbol of rebirth, Though there's no concrete proof of that. The term green man was only coined in 1939 we don't even know what they were called prior to that.

There's something unsettling about them, and the fact that despite their abundance and prominence we know so little.

hey guys, not sure if its appropriate to post here but what are some youtubers/podcasters that you would recommend that cover unsolved cases? would love to hear it in the background while multitasking. TIA
Casefile Podcast, it’s Australian so many cases covered are from there but he does other international cases too, not all are unsolved but still really good.

The disappearance of Tara Calico has always creeped me out, particularly the polaroids of her and the little boy tied up in the back of a van that surfaced but never amounted to anything.
That isn’t Tara Calico.

Tara Calico was murdered the day she disappeared within a few miles of her house. The most likely account is that a group of local boys began to harass her while she was off on her bike ride. They eventually ran her off the road and abducted, raped, and killed her.

The local cops know who was involved, the main perp being the son of the then-sheriff Lawrence Romero Sr.; the son Larry Jr. later died while playing Russian Roulette.

The photo, IMO, is a prank. The kids arms aren’t bound, merely crossed behind their backs. Their feet and ankles aren’t in the shot either so there’s no proof they were bound beyond the tape across the mouth. The photo is disturbing, but not proof of an abduction.

The boy who was thought to be the other victim in the photo, Michael Henley, went missing while on a hiking trip with his family. His remains were later found in that same area about a year later, cause of death was hypothermia.

The Dutroux affair is something I found interesting. Not because it's unsolved. But the kidnapper, murderer and rapist openly told the court and journalists in interviews he was simply a "delivery person" for the pedophile network. Victims confirmed and corroborated his claims. With evidence that solved two kidnappings and murders. And despite this massive admission. No further investigations were launched.
Pizza. Gate.

That's why it never went anywhere.

If anyone want to read about a case that has a certain glow about it, try Charles Rogers. Rogers was a WWII vet and pilot with a degree in nuclear physics. While in the service he worked Naval Intelligence. After the war he took a job as a seismologist for Big Oil in his home state of Texas.

However in 1965 at age 43, Charlie was still living at home with his elderly parents and was unemployed. He was a recluse who would only communicate by pushing notes under his bedroom door.

In June of ‘65 after a relative called for a wellness check on the Rogers family, police entered the house. Inside the fridge were a dozen parcels of wrapped and butchered meat along with the heads of Fred & Edwina Rogers, Charles’s parents. Autopsies showed they were most likely murdered on June 20th, Fathers Day.

Charles was never seen again.

Another from the never seen again files...

In November of 1958 Tom Pendergast picked up a 16 year old hitchhiker on his way home from work, a kid named Carl Eder. Pendergast and his family welcomed Eder into their home and he lived with them for several weeks.

On Dec 12th that same year Eder murdered Lois Pendergast and her four young children while dad Tom was at work. He even waited for the two older boys to return home from school so he could kill them too. Eder was arrested, tried, and found guilty on all counts.

But for some reason (California) he was placed in a minimum security prison which he simply walked out of 16 years later. There were allegedly sightings of him in the Berkeley area in the late 70s but that’s it. Carl Eder effectively disappeared and has never been found.

Gas station abductions, especially late at night when people are alone, are always very scary to read about. Kelly Bergh Dove was working one of her sister's shifts (they all had the same job) when she called the police thrice to report an obscene caller/suspicious customer; she disappeared minutes before help arrived. What's even more frightening was that while obscene calls were common when women were working there alone, they stopped save for one after she disappeared. I wonder if the kidnapper was originally targeting the sister(s) and then took her?

I'm still reading through this thread so there might be some repeats, but here are some of my picks.

Taxicab Phone Discovery: In 2014, a student got into a Fijian taxicab and found an unclaimed cellphone in the backseat. In an effort to find the phone’s owner, the student thumbed through the device’s photos. Instead, he found a 10-minute video of four people clinging to ship wreckage in the middle of the ocean. The video shows the victims raising their arms for help only to be struck by multiple rounds of gunshots. Someone in the background of the video repeatedly yelled in Mandarin over a loudspeaker (people speaking Indonesian and Vietnamese are also heard). Police got involved immediately after the video was posted and contacted Interpol for help identifying both the victims and the assailants. However, because the video was such poor quality, no faces were identifiable. Because of the poor quality of the video, and because it happened in international waters, it's likely this case will never be solved.

To me, the creepiest part (aside from the actual on-screen murders) is that at the end of the video the murderers all smile and laugh and pose for selfies. They just murdered four people in cold blood and they're laughing about it. It's chilling.

The Circleville Letters: In 1977, a school bus driver named Mary Gillispie started receiving anonymous, angry letters in the mail. Someone had found out about her affair with the school superintendent and wanted her to call it off. Later, her husband Ron received a letter of his own, and after a few weeks trying to ignore the threats, he told his children he was taking his gun to confront the letter writer and promptly drove his truck into a tree. He was killed instantly. Years later, the letters began arriving again, though Mary had remarried the superintendent and had nothing left to hide.

Su Taraskiewicz: Su Taraskiewicz was a trailblazer. In 1992, Su was not only the first woman to work as a ramp supervisor at Logan International Airport, she also filed reports of the rampant sexual harassment she encountered on the job. Su was a standup worker, who refused to become involved in a credit card theft ring amongst airport employees. Susan was last seen at 1:00 A.M. on September 13, 1992. She didn’t return from getting a midshift meal–and co-workers punched her timecard in and out anyway. Due to return for another shift the next evening, she didn’t show again. And once again, her co-workers punched her timecard. Her body was found inside the trunk of her car on September 14, having been beaten and stabbed to death. It is suspected that either one of her co-workers involved in the credit card ring or an ex-boyfriend was responsible for her killing, but the case went cold about a year after her death.

Abigail Williams and Liberty German: On February 13, 2017, Abigail Williams and Liberty German were dropped off by Liberty’s older sister at an abandoned railway near a hiking path in Delphi, Indiana. The two girls promised to meet with a family member near a bridge later on that day, but the duo never showed up. At first the police didn’t expect any foul play, but the girls’ bodies were found the next day about half a mile away from the bridge. The only lead investigators had were Snapchat uploads of the girls walking along the railroad, and an unidentified man approaching them. The last thing that remains from their encounter is a chilling audio clip of the man saying, “Down the hill.”

This case has been mentioned before in this thread but it's worth reiterating because it's so disturbing. I can't imagine how scared those poor girls must have been when that man approached them. The fact that it's been three years and no justice has been found is depressing.

I have more cases but I'll stop here for now.

Number Stations have always fascinated me. The primary theory is that they're a Cold War era spy broadcasting signal, but no concrete proof has ever really been found. The fact they still run so regularly to this day is amazing.

I could go on for hours about Number Stations, but there's plenty out there that goes over the subject much better than I can. It's an interesting rabbit hole to say the least.

UVB-76, Swedish Rasphody, Lincolnshire Poacher are good places to start, they're the more notorious of the Number Stations.

That's fucked up. That happened around the time of the Speedway bombings. That one isn't unsolved, though. Lolcow Brett Kimberlin was responsible for that but, presumably, not guilty of the Burger Chef murders, although he was a suspect for a time.

The Alcasser's girls, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcàsser_Girls. In 1992 three girls hitchhiked on a random to go to a party. They were raped and murdered, I remind you that hitchhiking was normal until this. The three girls were recorded on video, supposedly, on a pedophile snuff ritual. Is like our pizzagate. I think that they weren't murdered by their capturers but from these psychopaths that we call politicians.
Another one is the death of the little brother of our ex king, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infante_Alfonso_of_Spain. It isn't clear why he pulled the trigger, mass media tell that it was by accident. However, there is a theory that Alfonso was the chosen one to rule Spain, his father wanted him to become king instead of Juan Carlos, but General Franco was in a feud with him so he ordered Juan Carlos to kill his brother.

Slight aside but I have such a hard time looking at videos about missing people where the YouTuber slaps their face on the thumbnail. I know it's an autistic thing to be annoyed by and I'll gladly take my puzzle pieces, but it just pisses me off more than it really should.
