A new year is the perfect time to make some changes, and I am.
It's been an ongoing process over the last year. One thing at a time, nothing too big or too hasty. But I have been changing things. I have lost almost 50 pounds through keto, started exercising, and have been getting out more, even in the shitty winter weather. I have also lessened my social media presence, because ultimately, sharing the minutiae of life on Facebook is not in itself a life.
This month on Into the Unknown, we explore a Christmas mystery, the unsolved Christmas Day murder of Latricia White, and the disappearances of her boyfriend Lee 'Dub' Wackerhagen and his son, Chance. For years, police believed Dub had murdered Latricia, then voluntarily disappeared with his son, but as the years stretched on with no contact, that scenario becomes less likely.
None of these mysteries have been solved in the 24 years that have elapsed, and the police are truly baffled by the sequence of events.
The Hartford Circus Fire in 1944 is known by many across America as the worst fire disaster in the country's history. Resulting in the death of over 150 people, many of them children, and the injury of over 700 more, this disaster was entirely preventable, most likely caused by either human error or arson. Despite a plethora or theories and several intensive investigations, no one is really sure what caused the blaze even now.
Unbelievably, over 70 years later, there is one victim who remains unidentified, a little girl with blonde hair and blue eyes, who is known as Little Miss 1565. While she is not the only victim who was never identified, it is heartbreaking that for so many years a beautiful little girl could remain unclaimed after such a tragedy.
This is a long one, so strap in.

No one deserves to be forgotten. Least of all a child, and especially not for over 35 years. On this month's Into the Unknown, we look at the case of a murdered child who has remained nameless since February of 1983.
