I've been writing Into the Unkown posts every month for a little over two years now, and the time feels like it's flown by. I've covered dozens of cases, and I'm pleased to say that several of them have updates, and one was solved before I published it. I have been updating the individual cases as the information has become available, but I wanted to do a big update post, so you can read through all the updates in one session.
I added a post category so you can look through just the posts with updates by clicking 'Updated' or 'Solved' under the Categories header on the right hand side of the blog.
I wouldn't normally publish a post that was solved before publication. However, I already had this post written when I read the news of the solution to the case, and because I live near the city Miranda lived in when she died, I decided to go ahead with the post. Any outdated information is only outdated because of the resolution, but Miranda still deserves to be known, and remembered. Please read through the post and find the solution at the bottom.
Miranda Fenner was a young woman with her whole life in front of her. All she was trying to do was put in a shift at work, and everything was taken from her in a heartbeat. No one witnessed the crime, and no one has any answers for her family. To this day, her brutal murder haunts a Montana city, and the family who can't let her go.
I am very familiar with the cities we're about to talk about. I spend time in both of them often. Still, I had never heard about the murder of Miranda Fenner until I stumbled across a video created by Cayleigh Elise, one of my favorite content creators. She no longer makes videos due to some personal issues she's been dealing with, but the video is fantastic, and anyone interested in content similar to this series should check out her channel.
I took a break from Into the Unknown last month, but we're back this month with the disappearance of a beautiful little girl, and the murder of her mother. This case is heartbreaking, and the devastated family deserves answers.
On April 1, 2016, a family was torn apart by the disappearance of Nicole 'Nikki' Fitts and her two-year-old daughter Arianna. They were further devastated when Nikki's body was found just days later. But the discovery of Nikki's fate led them no closer to finding Arianna, who remains missing to this day.
A loving mother and her child should never be separated by any means, but least of all by violence. A family like the Fitts family should not have to wait years for justice, or for answers, when something like that does happen.
Generally when someone who is considered a celebrity goes missing, it's of their own volition. They either need privacy to deal with personal issues, or are struggling with circumstances either obvious or unknown to their fans and the media.
Most of the time, these mysteries are short-lived and easily solved. Often, the celebrity themselves reappear on their own.
We've been digging into some dark territory lately, and I thought we'd take a break from it for one month and talk about something, while not lighter, certainly less gruesome.
On June 16, 1907, the Irish Crown Jewels were discovered missing from their home at Dublin Castle. Embarrassingly, they were stolen right from under the noses of those charged with protecting them, and could have been missing for weeks before their theft was discovered. They've never been found, and to this day no one knows who took them.
This is my personal and professional blog. I write about mysteries, books, and all kinds of fun things on this blog. I'm glad you're here!
