Professional bull rider murdered suspect in custody

The Salt Lake County Third District Court has filed charges against the woman who is alleged to have shot and killed professional bull rider Demetrius Allen, also known as “Ouncie Mitchell,” while he was visiting the city for the Utah State Fair.

Lashawn Denise Bagley, 22, is accused of nine third-degree felony counts of felony discharge of a firearm as well as one first-degree felony count of murder.

According to the police, Bagley shot Allen as he stood outside of her residence in Salt Lake City around 900 South and 200 West. According to reports, Allen was attempting to retrieve rodeo equipment worth roughly $10,000 that he had left in her apartment and her car. Apparently, bullets were fired as he was pounding on the balcony door, according to the authorities.

Bagley reportedly informed the 911 operator, “They’re beating on my window,” during a call just prior to the shooting. The 911 operator allegedly questioned Bagley what the loud noises were after hearing them and she allegedly replied, “I’m firing.”

A 27-year-old man was killed as a consequence of domestic abuse, and Salt Lake City Police are currently looking into the incident.

Responding police discovered Demetrius Omar Lateef Allen, also known by his riding name Ouncie Mitchell, with a gunshot wound outside of an apartment building close to 900 South and 200 West. When Gold Cross arrived to take Allen to a nearby hospital, officers started providing emergency medical care right away. Allen later passed away from his injuries.

The suspect, LaShawn Denise Bagley, 21, has reportedly been securely brought into custody by the police.

Police discovered Allen and Bagley were acquainted and had an on-again, off-again connection through an investigation conducted by the SLCPD Homicide Squad with the help of the SLCPD Crime Lab. Allen, a professional bull rider, is thought to have traveled to Salt Lake City to attend the Utah State Fair while lodging with Bagley.
After leaving the fair, the two allegedly got into a fight at a bar in downtown Salt Lake City. Rounds were fired, leaving numerous bullet holes, and when Allen returned to Bagley’s residence to retrieve his belongings, shots were fired.
Bagley has been lodged in the Salt Lake County Metro Jail on felony firearm discharge and murder charges.
According to police, this is the tenth murder case.

Teen Mom 2 star found dead potentially murdered

Teen Mom 2 star found dead potentially murdered

The TV personality, who made an appearance on the program in 2014, was reportedly discovered in her hotel room by a cleaner.

Although her exact cause of death is “still unknown,” it is thought that authorities are looking into a “possible homicide”.

‘I’ve been communicating with investigators too, and they are saying they saw a film of two males with Taylor in the hotel room,’ Haylee Lewis, Lewis’ sister, said in an interview with In Touch, adding that she is assisting with the investigation.

She was allegedly discovered “hours later.”

However, there are also rumors that Lewis, who had previously struggled with addiction, passed away from a heroin overdose.

Lewis’ friends have paid tribute to her in the wake of her passing; Jenelle Evans, her former best friend and co-star on the show while she was pregnant, 31, shared a heartbreaking social media post.

What happened, Taylor? she exclaimed. We used to be best friends, but we drifted apart because of the various crowds we hung out with.

From afar, I wanted to watch you succeed as a woman, but I was always pulling for you. I’m not sure what happened, but I’m devastated to hear this news and I hope it doesn’t keep you from sleeping well.

The Teen Mom star shared a number of old pictures of herself with Lewis and urged fans to reply and ‘check in’ with their friends to see how they are doing.

Lewis and Evans’ tangled past is well known, even though it is unknown why their friendship ended.

Evans’ ex-husband, Courtland Rogers, had Lewis as his first wife. Before their divorce, Lewis and Rogers had a daughter together named Jordan Ashlee Nikole Lewis.

Following that, Evans and Rogers started dating in early 2012 and got hitched in December of that same year.

However, they split up a month later.

After the breakup, Evans confided in her buddy Lewis after learning she was expecting Rogers’ child during the Teen Mom 2 season 5 premiere.

Evans admitted to her buddy at the time, “I did relapse [on heroin] one time and that was when I met Courtland.”

We only got married after dating for three months, me and him. I’m furious with myself for getting married to someone without giving it any thought.

I visited the doctor the other day because I was sick, she continued. We can’t offer you a chest X-ray since you’re pregnant, they said.

Evans ultimately made the decision to have an abortion.

The boy under the floorboard drowned in a toilet.

According to court filings, the small child who drowned in a toilet bowl and whose decomposing body was discovered under the floorboards of a house in rural Arkansas had been dead for three months.

Investigators were informed by Ashley Rolland, 28, that her son Blu had been disciplined by Nathan Bridges, her live-in partner, 33, after the child bit his finger. The 6-year-old daughter of Rolland was discovered inside the house with serious scalp burns that Rolland claimed were also brought on by Bridges.

They are both accused of murder in the first degree, mistreatment of a corpse, tampering with tangible evidence, and endangering the welfare of a child. Additionally, Rolland is accused of two felonies for allowing child abuse.

The unknown is the age of the children, who are not related to Bridges biologically. Blu would have turned six years old on December 16, the day his body was found, according to Karen Rolland, the children’s paternal grandmother. However, according to court records, he was born in 2017, making him 5 years old, which is consistent with the age of his burned sister, who is believed to be 6.

Ashley Rolland is cooperating with the officers, telling them that her son was killed on September 9 after Bridges chastised him for biting his finger, according to the affidavit submitted in Lee County Circuit Court. Rolland also claimed that Bridges held her daughter’s head under extremely hot water as “punishment” for misbehavior, resulting in burns.

The boy’s death was discovered after Rolland’s 57-year-old ex-mom-in-law called the police after her son, the kids’ biological father, tried to pick them up for a court-ordered custody visit on December 16 in the morning. The father became concerned when just the daughter—whose scalp burns had scabbed over—was present. According to the complaint, when police arrived at the residence at 10:45 p.m. to check on the resident’s welfare, they discovered freshly hammered flooring and “disturbed soil.”

Anita Widby, who describes herself as a friend of the paternal grandmother, stated that Karen Rolland had been attempting to obtain custody of the children for more than a year on a GoFundMe page created to assist with paying for the funeral of the deceased kid. Widby said that the child who is still alive has endured unspeakable abuse. This child’s hair had been chopped off, she is malnourished, cracked ribs, and many many burns on her body in various stages of healing,” she wrote on the plea for funds. “These injuries are presumed to be from her mother and the mother’s boyfriend. Later, Karen was notified that the youngest grandchild’s decomposing body had been found.”

8 teenage girls stabbed a man to death

In connection with the stabbing death of a 59-year-old Toronto man in what police are calling a “swarming” attack, eight adolescent girls are being charged with murder.

Following the weekend murder, officers from the Toronto Police Service charged the teenagers on Tuesday, according to the agency.

Just after 12:15 a.m. on Sunday, police responded to an allegation of an assault in downtown Toronto and discovered a male with stab wounds, according to Police Detective Sgt. Terry Browne. The individual was then taken to a hospital, where he passed away.

Start your day more wisely. Each morning, receive all the news you require in your inbox.

The victims identity will not be made public by the police until his next-of-kin has been reached. In the fall, according to Browne, the victim relocated to a nearby homeless shelter.

According to Browne, who spoke to reporters, “as the inquiry progressed, it became clear very early on that the individuals involved in this were being described as eight young females.” According to him, police found the suspects near the scene of the attack and detained three 13-year-old girls, three 14-year-old girls, and two 16-year-old girls, accusing them of second-degree murder.

The suspects connected on social media.
According to Browne, the same girls got into a fight earlier that evening in the vicinity of the man’s murder. He declined to provide further information, but he did state that the girls were allegedly trying to steal a bottle of alcohol from the victim, according to the detectives.

“(The suspects) got to know one another on social media. They originate from several locations throughout the city, Browne said during a press briefing. “We have no idea how or why they connected that evening or why they chose to travel to downtown Toronto. How long they had been acquainted with one another is unknown. At this time, I wouldn’t classify them as a gang.

They took part in a “swarming,” according to Browne. He opted not to mention if the teenager recorded the assault.

He claimed that several weapons had been taken, but he would not specify what sort. All of the girls, according to him, are Canadian, and three of the suspects have a history of running afoul of the law.

I’ve been in policing for almost 35 years and you think you’ve seen it all,” Browne said in an interview with The Associated Press. “Anyone who isn’t shocked with hearing something like this has clearly just thrown in the towel and just said that anything is possible in this world. Eight young girls and most under the age of 16. If this isn’t alarming and shocking to everyone, then we’re all in trouble quite frankly.”

Browne said police spoke to the parents of the teens.

“I can tell you it was a shock to find out that their children were involved in an event like this,” he said.

Canadian authorities did not release the girls’ names because they are minors.

Browne said they remain in custody and are due in court for an appearance Dec. 29.

Motel 6 shooting timeline

In the early morning of Wednesday, Dec. 14, two Bay St. Louis police officers were killed in the line of duty while responding to a welfare concern at Motel 6 on U.S. 90. Their names were Sgt. Steven Robin, 34, and Officer Branden Estorffe, 23.

The two officers went to the motel to respond to a 911 call made by the front desk on behalf of a guest named Amy Anderson. After arriving on the scene, Robin and Estorffe talked with Anderson, who had an 8-year-old child with her, for around half an hour. During this time, a phone call was placed to Child Protective Services.

Shortly after the call was made, Anderson started shooting at the officers in the motel parking lot. Robin was shot in the head and died instantly. Estorffe was shot and succumbed to his injuries later in a nearby hospital. Anderson also perished in the shooting, but the child that was with her was not harmed.

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, the agency responsible for investigating all of the state’s police shootings, initially thought that Anderson’s gunshot wound was self-inflicted, making her death a suicide. According to Public Service Commissioner Sean Tindell, MBI investigators later found that a round discharged from Estorffe’s gun was actually responsible for Anderson’s death.

A candlelight vigil was held on Thursday at Bay High’s Tiger Stadium in honor of the fallen officers. Family members of both victims and hundreds of community members were in attendance. A joint funeral service for the officers who died together will be held on Wednesday at the Bay St. Louis Community Center, 301 Blaize Ave. Visitation for family, friends, and community members will begin at 9:30 a.m., and the funeral service will begin at noon.

Here’s a timeline of what happened that Wednesday morning. Some of the times listed below are approximate.

2:30 a.m.

Ocean Springs veterinarian Amy Brogdan Anderson, 43, arrives at Motel 6 in Bay St. Louis with an 8-year-old child. They check in at the front desk.

3:35 a.m.

The Motel 6 front desk manager calls 911 at Anderson’s request. The manager says that the guest (Anderson) sounded distressed.

3:38 a.m.

Officer Branden Estorffe arrives at the scene and is joined a minute later by Sgt. Steven Robin. She tells officers that she feared for her life and that her and her daughter were being followed by a white pickup truck.

3:39 a.m. — 4:18 a.m.

Robin and Estorffe meet up with Anderson to address her 911 call. Anderson tells the officers that she is being followed by a white pick-up truck, and that she fears for her life. Robin and Estorffe investigate Anderson’s allegations, gather information, and take statements. The officers interact with Anderson and the 8-year-old inside and outside their motel room.

Concerned about the minor’s safety in Anderson’s care, Robin and Estorffe decide to call Child Protective Services. Shortly after, Anderson and the child begin loading their vehicle, and Anderson informs the officers that they will be leaving Motel 6.

4:19 a.m.

Seated in the driver’s seat of her brown Toyota Highlander, Anderson fires one shot at Robin, who was standing by the driver’s side door. The bullet hits him in the head, killing him instantly. Officer Estorffe, who was on the phone with Child Protective Services, hears the shot and immediately returns to the vehicle. As he approaches, Estorffe and Anderson exchange gunfire. Both individuals are hit, and their injuries are fatal. Estorffe was alive when he was removed from the scene, but died shortly after at a nearby hospital.

The investigation into this shooting is open and ongoing. The Mississippi Department of Public Safety will release additional details to the public upon its completion.

Could Amy really be fearing for her life? And was afraid someone was going to kill her and her daughter? And if so who? She was concerned enough to call the cops about this white pickup truck. Could she have been fearing for her life when the police told her they contacted CPS? What are your thoughts?

According to Jerry her ex-husband she had threatened her pedophile ex-husband with the same firearm she used in the gun battle that ended her life.

Amy Brogdon Anderson menaced her former husband, Royce Carroll “Jerry” Mize, with the 9mm handgun when he was released on bail after being arrested for performing oral sex on a 10-year-old girl in June 2017, the Daily Mail reported.

Mize, 63, is currently serving a 10-year sentence for sexual battery at Leake County Correctional Facility.

Anderson, 43, had two children from a previous relationship and married Mize in 2011.

Mize’s sexual misconduct with his minor victim occurred in Feb. and March 2017, and the couple divorced shortly after. He is currently serving a 10-year sentence.

In the divorce filing, Anderson requested custody of the couple’s young child, as well as her two older children.

“[Mize’s actions] have been extremely damaging to the mental health and physical health of Amy, and that the continuance of the marital relationship would cause further serious damage to both her mental and physical health and well being, and to the physical health and well being of the minor child,” the documents read.

In his own court filing, Mize claimed that Anderson had stolen or lost some of his possessions, including a Chevy Silverado truck, clothing, and prescription glasses. He also described the moment she waved the 9mm pistol at him when he tried to retrieve his RV while out on bail.

Anderson, who just started a new job at Lakeview Animal Hospital last month, checked herself and her 8-year-old daughter into a Motel 6 a short distance from her Ocean Springs home around 2:35 a.m. on Dec. 14.

Shopping cart killer

Anthony Robinson, 35, has already been charged with the killing of two women. Investigators believe Robinson met his victims on dating websites and allegedly lured them into motels where he killed them and transported their bodies in shopping carts.

Police received a “critical tip” this week that might connect Robinson to another case in which a woman’s body was found in a shopping cart in Washington, DC, Fairfax County Police Bureau Chief of Major Crimes Cyber and Forensics Ed O’Carroll said in a news conference on Friday.

“That deceased woman in a shopping cart was covered only with a blanket. We believe this may be Anthony Eugene Robinson’s fifth victim,” O’Carroll said. He added that digital evidence places Robinson in the same vicinity around the time of the victim’s disappearance.

Robinson was charged in November with the deaths of Elizabeth Redmon, 54, of Harrisonburg, and Tonita Lorice Smith, 39, of Charlottesville. Investigators found their bodies a short distance from each other on November 23 in an open lot in Harrisonburg, Virginia, according to Harrisonburg police.

Police said video surveillance and cell phone records connecting Robinson to Redmon and Smith led to his arrest. He is currently being held at the Rockingham County Adult Detention Center in North Carolina on two counts of first-degree murder in addition to two felony counts of concealing, transporting or altering a dead body, authorities said.

Cheyenne Brown, 29, of Washington, DC, and Stephanie Harrison, 48 of Redding, California, were found in a container near a shopping cart close to the Moon Inn motel in Alexandria, Virginia, on December 15. Authorities believe Brown had taken the metro from Washington, DC, to the Huntington Metro stop in Virginia on September 30 and never returned and Robinson may have been the last person to have contact with her.

Police had determined Robinson was communicating with Brown through a dating website right before her disappearance and cell phone records indicated Robinson and Brown were in contact “in and around the area” of the Moon Inn motel on Richmond Highway in Alexandria, Virginia, Harrisonburg Police Chief Kelley Warner said in December.

“We have found that Robinson has stayed at the Moon Inn motel on at least five other occasions, and we need to know more,” Davis said. The police chief said officials have requested the support of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Behavioral Analysis Unit to learn more about Robinson. They are also partnering with authorities in Robinson’s home state of New York as well as the Harrisonburg Police Department in Virginia.”Additionally, we are working on a victimology profile and hoping to get in contact with other women who may have interacted with Robinson,” Davis said.

Police are urging anyone with information about Robinson to contact authorities immediately.”We believe there are others who have had contact with Robinson, who can provide crucial information to us about him,” Davis added.

Terry Bubba Rewis

Jeannie “Willene” Bryant has dedicated the last 17 years to keeping her brother’s memory alive, while seeking justice for his homicide. Willene admits, with frustration, that she does not know what transpired the evening her little brother, Terry Rewis, was killed.

Bubba, as he was lovingly called, was the victim of a reported hit-and-run on April 21, 2002.

“There are just so many questions. All these years, I’ve just had so many questions and it’s like my little brother has been forgotten about,” Willene shared in 2016 interview with Dateline.

The surviving sibling reflects on her late brother’s personality, describing him as both silly and serious. Bubba put great effort into changing his life for the better, but he never got to see his labors appreciated or reap the benefits.

“Terry’s life was hard. It started off hard and it seemed to get harder,” Willene stated. “But he was trying to put it back together and put things on track.”

According to Willene, her brother’s body was found on the side Highway 56 in Swainsboro, Georgia, by a group of hunters. The lack of evidence or clues at the scene challenged the investigators from the start. Subsequent investigations revealed that Rewis had been picked up by an acquaintance driving a truck earlier that day. Rewis then attended the Ogeechee River Redbreast Festival in the neighboring city of Midville.

Rewis reportedly left the festival alone on foot that night. Swainsboro was roughly 6 miles away, and he decided to make the trek back on foot.

Questions are abundant regarding that night, but so are the theories.

Willene shares her numerous speculations, ranging from a local dispatcher inadvertently striking Bubba, to him being thrown out of a truck following a heated exchange with the other occupants, resulting in his death.

Although both the Emanuel County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia State Patrol worked toward solving this case, no follow-up leads or tips have been fruitful in identifying what happened to Bubba Rewis on April 21, 2002.

While Willene waits for answers, she continues to advocate. She devotes her time to honoring her brother’s memory, with the intent of finding him justice. She hosts events in surrounding cities aimed at grabbing attention and producing answers in her brother’s death. At the very least, she hopes the events raise some awareness for Bubba and other victims.

Willene is firmly set in her beliefs that the Emanuel County Sheriff’s Office hasn’t devoted all the resources needed to solve Bubba’s case. She implies that her family’s socioeconomic status is partially to blame.

In her interview with Dateline, Willene explains, “We are a poor family, and sometimes it seems like people just don’t care. But we aren’t going to give up looking for justice for my baby brother. Never.”

Terry’s family has their own suspicions. Rumors over the years have persisted and whispers that Terry was either hit by someone who knew he would be walking along that highway, or wasn’t even hit at all. One story is he was in the back of a pick-up truck and an altercation ensued between him and another man he was traveling with, ending with him being thrown onto the roadway.

Either way, Willlene simply wants answers. Terry’s family held a small rally on Saturday, hoping to raise greater awareness about his case. There is also a Facebook page titled ‘Is there NO Justice for Terry Brooks “Bubba” Rewis’ where Willene posts frequent pleas for anyone with information to come forward.

She believes there is more than one person who knows the truth.

If you have any information on the death of Terry Rewis, please call the Emanuel County Sheriff’s Department at 478-237-7526.


Research and Impact

Advocacy and research into areas of racial disparities and socioeconomic factors impacting the solvability of a case is a growing concern for academia. The number of cleared or solved murders depend on deciphering nuisance complexities within the clearance rate.

Retired NYPD detective sergeant Joe Giacalone discussed the issue in a 2014 NPR interview. “Any loss of life is a problem as far as I’m concerned,” Giacalone said. “But one thing I can say about myself and anybody in the New York City Police Department, we treated every homicide the same way – doesn’t matter a race, color, creed, religion. It didn’t matter. We put the same effort into solving those cases as we would anybody else.”

Combating this perception issue is often a theme within victim services community. Project: Cold Case hears all too often the perceptions left upon a family when a loved one is murdered, mirroring concerns that their loved one wasn’t “worth” the resources to investigate.

April 21, 2002, was the annual Ogeechee River Redbreast Festival in Midville, a town twenty-five miles north of Nunez. Rewis attended the festival with a friend named James Kirby and a few others. At some point, a fight broke out, and the police were called in to break it up. At this point in the narrative, the reports begin to vary. Some people say, Terry Rewis was asked to leave, so he took off walking towards home. This might be feasible if he lived in town. To make it back to Nunez, Terry would have to walk 25.7 miles south along HWY 56 in the dark. If you race down this highway on Google Earth, you will see there isn’t one street light to be found until you get down to Swainsboro.
Another witness claims, Terry and a group of people piled into a pickup truck and headed south. Terry and a few others were riding in the back. This witness also claims a fight broke out while the vehicle sped down the highway towards Swainsboro. During the scuffle, Terry Rewis was thrown from the moving vehicle and subsequently ran over. This was the story that circulated around the small town of Nunez according to the woman.
Whatever the case, two hunters would find the mutilated remains of Terry Rewis the next morning. It appeared his body had been drug several yards down the highway at a high rate of speed.
Of course, the rumor mill kicked into high gear feeding information to the family and friends, but no physical evidence could be found to help them get justice for their beloved Terry. To make matters worse, it seemed as if the investigation wasn’t high on the priority list. A lot of times during investigations, the police are working quietly behind the scenes, and the family becomes frustrated because they don’t see any results. We may never know if this was the case because, in 2017, the new investigator informed the family that the original files on the case had been lost.
If this were the end of the story, I would tend to believe that this might just be a terrible accident, and the crime was abandoning the scene of a crash. Basically, the case seems to scream vehicular manslaughter, but some unusual things have come out in the 17-year fight for justice.
Four months later another young man was found dead beside the road only a few streets over from HWY 56. His name was James Felton Williams. He was only 19, and it isn’t clear if he had any ties to Terry Rewis. The location, the timing, and some of the accident details seem to parallel Terry’s case.
In 2016, NBC did a write up about Terry’s case, and in 2017, Terry’s sister hosted a “Keeping Memories Alive” event in Swainsboro. Shortly beforehand, James Kirby had spoken with Terry’s sister for over an hour. He didn’t offer any details about that fateful night, but repeatedly expressed his condolences and told her how much he cared for Terry. Several days after the event, Kirby was dead. Investigators are torn on the cause of death. Some say it was an overdose others say it was a brain aneurism. We may never know what happened on that night in 2002 between these two best friends. If you happen to have information on this case, please come forward. You can contact the Emanuel County Sherrif’s Department at (478) 237-7526.

James Felton Williams, 19,
of Kite, Ga., was found just
after midnight Saturday (August 24 2002) on
the edge of Georgia Highway 57.
He had an injury to the back
of the head and several cuts.
He might have been thrown from
the back of a truck or struck
in the head with an object.
It does not appear he was hit by a car.

We were told by someone
that his death was a hit and run
(Like Terry’s death)
but this says different.
The day of Terry’s birthday celebration
We were told that a deputy killed this boy. With
Terry’s death the dispatcher
was said to have ran over my
brother after he was down
and her name and car
information was given in the
original accident report but
there was no blood or
anything on her car. We believe
she was used as a decoy of
sorts, someone to help throw off the truth.

Both Terry and James “hit and run” story
is very similar and a few months apart.
James death August 24 2002
and Terrys was April 21 2002.

Someone has to investigate
these cases and the way
they were handled.

When my Terry was found dead his scalp was gone and his stomach was cut and so was his right leg. Found out later a little over a year ago that the main artery to his heart was severed.

Dardeen Family

Ina Illinois, a village, crime rates had been high, we are talking around 15 homicides in the past 2 years…. In 1990, so a few years later the population was 489.

Home of The Dardeen Family, Russell Keith (29), Ruby Elaine(30), and Peter (3). Plus they were expecting a baby girl they were planning on naming Casey. Both parents went by their middle names, Keith and Elaine.

They were friendly, were in a musical group at church, but do to the areas increasing crime rates, they were cautious never to trust strangers or let anybody in or near. Due to fear they actually decided to put their trailer up for sale to move back to Keith’s hometown, Mount Carmel.

November 18 1987 Keith never showed up for work, which was unlike him and made people suspicious. After several calls to different people, the sheriff ended up going to check on them and walked into a horrible scene! Elaine, and Peter had both been beaten to death with a baseball bat that had been a birthday present for Peter on his last birthday. (Who gives a 3 year old a baseball bat). Even worse, stress of the beating had cause Elaine to go into labor, and the newborn had also been beaten to death. All three of them were tucked into bed and the crime scene cleaned up. Nothing stolen, and no forced entry.

Police instantly jump to their first suspect being Keith, and the search is on for him. However, when he is found though it is by hunters, and he himself is found to be an additional victim not a suspect. He had been shot three times, and his genitals mutated.

His car was parked by a police station, blood splatter indicated that is where Keith had been murdered.

Suspects/theories: Freight train killer, though not enough similarities

Tommy Lee Sells, a serial killer who confessed but was never convicted… his stories would suddenly change, stories of their meeting, and such were always changing. Plus, he confessed to more than 70… and was actually thought to commit maybe 22 of them. He drank a lot, used drugs and was constantly through his life a thief in and out of jail.

Mistaken identities?

Multiple killers, why was Keith so far away and such different murders?

Cami Sheppard

Cami was born in Thailand April 1, 1975 she and her twin brother Kim were adopted by our mom Erlene S Shepherd. Cami went to school and grew up in Holladay, Utah but sadly lost her mom to breast cancer at age 15. She loved nature,  the mountains and animals, her biggest love was birds..  Cami later on had 4 children 3 sons and 1 daughter, she also leaves behind a granddaughter and a grandson. 

Her sister received A voicemail from Cami stated her phone got stolen do not send text messages or anything.

2 weeks later Cami went missing she was a mother of four. Her sister said she went through some hard times but she never went a couple of weeks without contacting someone.

West Valley City police say around 12:30 p.m., they received a call from a crew working construction at 4100 South Redwood Road and the site of an old Kmart store.

April 6th Her body was found. Behind a vacant K-mart in a sewage drain, A survey crew stumbled upon a body in a sewage drain. The confirmed it was Cami. Police claimed that Cami went into the drain to keep warm. Her family doesn’t buy it. Her apartment is directly behind the spot where her body was found. If she was cold she would have gone home.

Her autopsy confirmed that there were no signs of a struggle. There is also not any information if the autopsy confirmed if there were drugs in her system or not.

April Her body was found. Behind a vacant K-mart in a sewage drain A survey crew stumbled upon a body in a sewage drain. The confirmed it was Cami. Police claimed that Cami went into the drain to keep warm. Her family doesn’t buy it. Her apartment is directly behind the spot where her body was found. If she was cold she would of gone home.

As painful as that was for Kristi, what one of the detectives then told her made the situation far harder to bear. The way the cops saw it, she had brought her death on herself. The detective suggested to Kristi that the 120-pound Cami had somehow lifted the 150-pound rusted lid off the drainage on her own and crawled down into the watery depths to get out of the cold.

Numb with disbelief, Kristi stared at him, realizing that the officers viewed her sister as one more addict whose drug-related death didn’t merit a serious investigation. Cami had always been afraid of water since as a very young child she’d fallen into a canal in Thailand and almost drowned. She could never have lifted the lid on her own. And why would she? Her apartment was a minute’s walk away.

“If we don’t have any leads,” the detective continued, “I’m just preparing you that we may have to close the case.”

The detectives got into their car and drove off. As the door shut, Kristi fell to her knees in shock, confusion and wordless rage at how they had blamed Cami for her own demise. “I was having such a hard time processing it all, that it even happened,” she said. “It was like it was just a bad dream.”

Cami’s sister says she has sent screenshots anytime someone logged into her sisters account and sent them to the WPD and she has also requested that her cellphone to be tracked and those requests have gone unheard. Her sister feels like they haven’t made her a priority at any point in this investigation.

Last year it is to beleived that that person who was logging into Cami’s go-fundme account and posting it to her facebook trying to collect money on Cami’s behalf. It continued from April to November The person who owns the gofund me was Brenda Combs. The gofund me has been taken down since but you can view her facebook here.

Now, in no way am I stating she is wrong we don’t always know what goes on behind the scenes of an investigation. If anyone has listened to Cold we know that there is a lot of things that the police don’t tell us or even lead us on to knowing because they can’t let the killer know they are on to them if they are ever going to make an arrest. Maybe they have mapped out her phone records and have found the ping as to where her last location was and where her phone was stolen and where the last person was who sent those facebook messages was. We don’t know this information maybe they have done nothing. But if anything that listening to cold has taught me is that there is a whole bunch behind the scenes stuff that we don’t get to know about.

We do know the detectives claim they have been investigating the case they went to the DA’s office to get a search warrant for cell phone records belonging to Cami Sheppard. This was denyed by the DA’s office

spokesperson for the police department said: “It is our understanding that Cami did not have her phone for two weeks prior to her disappearance. We consulted with the district attorney’s office regarding obtaining a search warrant for the phone and it was determined that seeking a search warrant would not be possible because although Cami Shepherd’s death is suspicious, there is not evidence that would classify it as a homicide or prove that a crime was commited that led to her death. Without proof of a crime, we are unable to get a search warrant.”

What someone does with a cell phone to track it is called Geo forensics I learned this at Def con among other things. (AKA exploding butt plugs and furry parties)

February 2nd her sister reported her missing this is two weeks after she received the voice mail.

The families private investigator theory is that she died and someone panicked and threw her body in there. Either she died and that person didn’t want to bring light onto themselves or there is the foul play here.

This is why having a if I go missing is so important and why this story hit me hard. I think everyone needs and if I go missing folder. If they had it in Cami’s case they could have accessed her Cell phone records and Social media and might have more of a lead than what they already have. Especially if there was possibly foul play involved
No suspects or person of interest have been named at this time this has been called an accidental suicide.

He still wants to find the person behind the cell phone text and is seeking information about who was with Cami on the night she disappeared.
Jensen wonders if there was some sort of an accident and someone panicked before dumping Shepherd’s body in the drain. If that’s the case, he says, the person would be smart to come forward immediately and offer an explanation.
This is to believed to be the same person who had stolen her cell phone. But it is not confirmed.

Maybe they have mapped out her phone records and have found the ping as to where her last location was and where her phone was stolen and where the last person was who sent those facebook messages was. This is to believed to be a big key in her disappearance her family says.

What I find interesting is that she had been missing Since Febuary, but her posts didn’t start back up for the go fund me until her body was found in April. -November 2018 So if someone was trying to post and act like she was still alive why wouldn’t they do it back in Febuary not when a body has been discovered? Was this just a way to taunt the family?

According to her sister Cami’s life wasn’t easy Cami became pregnant at 16 by her boyfriend, with whom she had four children in succession by the time she was 21. Cami and her boyfriend fought constantly, their children raised by the man’s parents. She started using cocaine and crack in early 2000, then meth in 2003, when she also encountered problems with the law with a March 2003, third-degree felony forgery conviction in an Ogden district court. A marriage ended in divorce and shortly after she became homeless.
