Episode 28: The Murder of Anita Carlson
On June 30th, 1987 22-year-old Anita Carlson had a lot to be excited about. Two months before she’d graduated with honors from Bemidji State University with a degree in communications and she’d already been offered a job at a television station. The upcoming weekend was an exciting time for residents in Bemidji. It was the fourth of July and many people celebrated by visiting the Water Carnival. Anita had no reason to suspect her future was anything but bright. Sadly, her promising life would come to a bitter end when she abducted from Pete’s Place West, a convenience store where she was working the night shift. A week later her body would be discovered in a heavily wooded area.

The Murder of Chris Northon
It was an odd weekend for camping on October 8th, 2000 in Wallowa County, Oregon. The weather was cool and would soon be turning cold, especially in places like the Wollowa-Whitman National Forest, but that didn’t deter 44-year-old Chris Northon and 38-year-old Liysa Northon from taking their three-year-old son into the mountains for a weekend in the outdoors. Tragically, though three people drove into the mountains, only two would come back out alive. In the early dark of Saturday, October 9th, Chris Northon would be shot in the head by the woman he’d married just four years before.

The Murder of Ann Fox Smith
It was warm spring day on Friday April 25th, 2008 in Aiken, South Carolina when 47-year-old Ann Fox Smith didn’t show up for work. Ann was a beloved special education teacher at Kennedy Middle School and this was definitely out of the ordinary. As the day went on with no word from Ann, her friend and fellow teacher, Sally Ferriter drove to Ann’s house on Whitney Drive to check on her. As she stepped from the sunny spring day into Ann’s home, she did not realize she was moments away from a life altering discovery. Ann Fox Smith lay dead on the floor in a blood spattered bedroom.

The Vanishing of Cherryl Lamont Pearson
Nothing about Cherryl’s day on Friday January 4th, 2002 foretold the trouble awaiting her. The 37-year-old pediatrician lived in Bartlett, Tennessee; a city located northeast of Memphis with a population of more than 50,000 people. That evening, she attended a Memphis Grizzlies game at the Pyramid Arena in Memphis. Cherryl had season tickets and as a former basketball player herself, it was a sport she enjoyed. She went to the game alone, which was not unusual. After the game, around 10:30pm Cherryl returned to her brick home located across the street from a golf course on Daybreak Drive in Bartlett Tennessee. Her close friend Andrea Fox and another girlfriend came over to hang out for a while leaving around 1 a.m. These friends would be the last known people to ever see Cherryl Pearson.

Joan was married and lived with her husband and two children, a son and a daughter, in a nice suburban home in a quiet, safe neighborhood.
