Hello everyone! I am a new poster but have been reading Websleuths for years. Here is my list of cases that haunt me:
Terry and Darleen Anderson murders-It just seems like somebody would have talked by now.
Scott and Amy Fandel
The Baskin children- I know it has been solved but my heart breaks for their parents. Did they ever get to talk to them?
Girl Scout murders
Ray Gricar-related to the Penn St. drama??
Sorry- three more

Even if this isn't the case you're referring to, give the Casolaro info a read. It's super freaky.
Some that bother me:
"Johnny Lee Mills" - This is a pet case of mine. Somebody must know who this kid was. It doesn't make sense he's been unidentified.
Johnny Gosch case and all the drama that goes with it.
Steven Koecher - just a disappearance that doesn't make sense. What happened to him?
Joey Lynn Offutt
For me, it's [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27541"]this[/ame] unidentified teenage girl who was pushed in front of a car in Florida. I always thought Sleuthster's theory was very good, but I take it there's been no further news?
Also, Cherrie Mahan.I was a year and a half older than her, and lived not too far away in north-central West Virginia. I remember looking out for the van with the skier on the side every time we went in the car.
Baby Gabriel Johnson. Missing since 2009.
Help find baby Gabriel Johnson
If I had to pick any ten cold case fugitive cases (Fugitive's that have been wanted since before 2002 which no recent leads) then here's what they would be.
Javier "El Flaco" Borbon -- Wanted since 1993 for international child abduction, hostage taking and murder. Brother Jamie who was also charged in the above crimes was confirmed dead in Mexico in 2004.
Larry Porter Chism -- Wanted since 1978 for two prison/custody escapes, attempted murder of a corrections officer and airplane hijacking across state borders.
William Fischer -- Wanted since 1986 for the murders of his terminally ill son and his son's girlfriend.
Socorro Gutierrez & Vinnicio Martinez -- Wanted since 1997 for the murder of a 13-year old boy in case of mistaken identity. Martinez I think was spotted in Denver, Colorado back in 2000 but fled during a police chase.
Olivera Hernandez -- Wanted since 1992 for the murder of his 17-year old employee.
Dennis Melvin Howe -- Wanted in 1983 for the kidnapping, rape and murder of a nine-year old Toronto girl.

Loretto Villar -- Wanted since 1982 for two murders and child selling.
Vincent Legrend "Tape" Walters -- Wanted since 1989 for murder, hostage taking and meth charges.
Randy "Mad" Yager -- Wanted since 1997 for a RICO indictment that included the murder of an elderly couple during a home invasion. Was a regional president of the Outlaws Motorcycle Gang. Fled with his girlfriend who is still listed as a missing person.
There are many cases that haunt me but the ones I think about the most are (in no particular order);
Mystery Couple SC

**All posts are my opinion.**
I still can't believe the Sharon Marshall is real. I refuse to believe it.
I also can't believe that they can't make Floyd talk. Truth serum? torture (I don't usually condone this)? There has got to be a way to get the truth out of this guy.
I also forgot to list the Roger Ellison case. I've followed this one for a long time also.
The disappearance of Kathy Shea (Tyrone, PA) has always bothered me, ever since I was little and living in another Pennsylvania town. As far as I know, there was never any evidence found or any suspect considered
Jeremy Alex, missing from Belfast, ME in 2004. I used to live in Belfast but moved shortly before his disappearance. I had always wished I could have taken part in the searches that went on. Its a shame that its been 8 years and no one has the answers. Knowing the town, the culture, and knowing the bad side of the culture I cant help but feel that people know a lot more than they are saying, possibly to protect themselves from the same fate that Jeremy suffered. There are two theories, one he was in a drug induced state of mind and possibly fell into the bay and second that someone really was after him. I believe that both happened, but foul play was involved in him going into the bay. Its a sad story, and I just wish the people in Belfast who know something would grow a pair and speak up.
I just wanna know someday!
Redheaded lady suicide in cemetery

Grateful Dead Boy
Boy in the box
This is a case that has always stuck with me. We were on vacation in PCB the morning she went missing. It was storming and by the time it let up enough for us to get out, the area was swarming with police.
I think it's so sad that no trace of her has ever been found. Her daughter posted on another forum that LE has shared with them evidence that makes them satisfied that the killer is in prison on another crime and will never get out. She couldn't share his name, but said that has given them some closure.
Related bodies in barrels-do tell? Also with Randy, how is it that his girlfriend is a missing person when they know she fled with him?
unsolved murder of 16 year old Beverly Jaros in Garfield Hts, Ohio in 1967 or thereabout !
killed in her upstairs bedroom while her friend waited for her outside....my friend lived one door
away and told me a few interesting details........
Tiffany Robin Stubbs Died 1988 Belton MO.
Her brother called her Tee Wa, he couldn't say Tiffany Robin.
She was 2 years 1 month and 2 days old. She was taken from her home, right out from under her parents noses. What was done to her was horrific, I cry just thinking about it. The police were never able to find her killer, I don't believe they tried very hard. I was only 14 when it happened but I remember the name of the person our family suspected.
All though some of these cases are recent, I think about all of them often.
