Police in Washington State found the remains last week of Lindsey Baum, a girl who vanished in 2009, never to be seen alive again.
“We’ve brought Lindsey home. We’ve recovered her,” Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott said at a press conference Thursday. “Sadly, she was not recovered as we and her family had hoped and prayed these last nine years.”
Baum disappeared when she was 10, and would have turned 20 last July.
She was last seen walking to a friend’s house in McCleary on June 26, 2009, to ask if she could spent the night. Her disappearance received national attention, with her photograph appearing on the cover of People magazine.
“I think somebody took her,” her mother, Melissa Baum, told ABC news in 2009 hours after Lindsey’s disappearance. “I’m trying to constantly push away the bad thoughts.”
Lindsey Baum’s remains were found by hunters in a remote area of eastern Washington in September 2017, in a place

The “Atlanta Monster” podcast scrutinizes the belief that Wayne Williams, an aspiring music producer, killed nearly 30 young African-Americans from 1979 to 1981. The podcast’s co-creators, Payne Lindsey and Donald Albright, say that they’ve gone back and forth on his guilt or innocence — just like many of their listeners.
“He lied to me about some very crucial things,” Lindsey, who hosts “Atlanta Monster,” told TheWrap’s “Shoot This Now” podcast in an interview you can hear on Apple or right here:
Because Williams was convicted in the murders of two adult men — and sentenced to spend the rest of his life behind bars — prosecutors saw no need to charge him with the additional killings. But police also stopped searching for other suspects, since they said the killings stopped after his arrest.
Williams denies killing anyone, and some victims’ families don’t believe he killed their lost loved ones. https://www.thewrap.com/atlanta-monster-wayne-williams-payne-lindsey-he-lied-to-me-about-some-very-crucial-things/
The California teen who livestreamed the alleged DUI crash which killed her 14-year-old sister and injured her sister’s girlfriend last month has spoken out.
In a Friday interview from prison, 18-year-old Obdulia Sanchez told NBC Fresno affiliate KSEE that the footage of the crash was jarring.
“I didn’t even know I looked like a monster — like, I look like a freaking horrible monster,” Sanchez said. “That was not my intention at all.”
Sanchez has been charged with drunk driving and vehicular manslaughter. AOL reported that her car went off the road while she was livestreaming.
“That’s when I just started freaking out,” Sanchez said. “And then I look in the back seat and there’s nobody in the back seat, and that’s when I started freaking out.”
Sanchez’s sister Jacqueline and her girlfriend, both age 14, were ejected from the car. She livestreamed while posing next to her sister’s dead body.

An arrest has been made in the death of 12-year-old Naomi Jones, whose body was found in a creek by fishermen on Monday. According to CBS News, 38-year-old Robert Leroy Howard—who often visited the apartment complex where Jones lived with her family near Pensacola, Florida—has been arrested.
Sheriff David Morgan of Escambia County held a news conference to share details about the arrest.
Investigators found Howard while canvassing Jones’ neighborhood. The man’s girlfriend lived “very close” to the Jones family and he apparently knew the girl. When questioned, the suspect allegedly gave “false information” that he was in Alabama during the child’s disapperance but police say surveillance video showed him by the creek.
“We’ve found our monster,” the sheriff shared.
According to WKRG, Howard was taken into custody early Thursday and authorities believe he acted alone. Per the news outlet, the suspect is a registered sex offender who was convicted of raping two 19-year-old
