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 Any outdated information is only outdated because of the resolution, but Miranda still deserves to be known, and remembered.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.
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.
5.9.19 - THERE HAS BEEN A MAJOR DEVELOPMENT IN THIS CASE.
This month on Into the Unknown, I delve into a case that was requested through Facebook. This is my first reader requested post, and another one that hits close to home for me, as it centers on a small Wisconsin community similar to the one I grew up in. I also dig into this case with the help and blessing of the missing person's daughter, Marsha Loritz, with all my gratitude.
Victoria 'Vicki' Prokopovitz disappeared from her home on April 25th, 2013. The five year anniversary is Wednesday of this week, and her family is still looking for her, waiting for answers.
And without further ado, let's get to business.
A parent should never have to bury their child, and they should never have to learn that that child has committed suicide. What would be worse than that? Perhaps finding out your child may not have taken their own life at all. That they may have been murdered. That is the nightmare Mary Chambers Couey lived through from the day her son Keith Warren was discovered in the woods behind their home. He was found hanging by the neck, and was presumed to have committed suicide. At first, Mary accepted the police conclusion. That is, until one day she received a packet of photographs at her door that made her change her mind.
Ever since then, questions about police misconduct and misinformation, and the possibility of withholding or outright destroying evidence have come to light.
Asha Degree vanished after leaving her home in the middle of the night on Valentine's Day in 2000. The circumstances of her disappearance are alarming to say the least, as it seems she left her home of her own volition that night.
