Though I manage small apartment properties, my hobby is working cold case homicides and missing person’s. You can do a Google search “My Look Into The Texas Killing Fields” I’ve communicated with serial killers in prison who then write me to tell me about other potential crimes they were involved in.
I also dated Peggy Jean Keener, a lady who shot and killed her ex boyfriend, (didnt know she was on bail for it at the time), and I was with Ana Trujillo, aka “The Stiletto Killer”.
I’ve searched and located bodies when I was with a search and recovery group.
People often ask me why I do this. I often wonder myself. Several times I have wanted to give up because most cops do not like civilians getting involved. Many people cannot stomach this kind of research. I do it because I care.
Why You Ask? When police run into dead ends, it turns into a “cold case”.
The case get set on a pile of other cold cases because quite frankly they run out of leads. I look at a case from my own perspective, a fresh set of eyes so to speak. Perhaps I may see something that the cops missed or passed up. I try to stay away from conspiracy stuff because that can lead into a direction totally off track.
I have researched cases where cops have become complacent. They get calloused in this stuff. I’m not saying they don’t care, I am just saying they look at it as just another case to pile on the desk. There are some cops that are dedicated and actually put a lot of work into a case.
Leon County Texas (Justice for Jan)
This case was ruled a suicide but what is fishy about it the lady had very limited use of her left hand and the gun allegedly found on the floor quite a few feet away. The husband was the one who called 911. He also happens to be friends with the DA and the Sheriff at the time of the death.
I have run into cases where the Sheriff or lead investigator has been there for over twenty years and the citizens are intimidated or scared to speak up for the victims. Is it possible they are covering up a murder or missing person, its quite possible. I’ve seen cases ruled suicide that look a little fishy to me however all I can do is what I can do to get a closer look at the players and such and report my findings. What the cops do is up to them, all I can do is say I tried.
This is why I do what I do. For the ones who law enforcement have given up on or turned a blind eye to. It concerns me because what if me or a family member or friend were found like this? You should be concerned too.
I was quite impressed with the work League City Police did in identifying the two girls off Calder Road.I’m a little bit closer to that case than I want to be, but if anything I can remember can help then I will do it. If the LCPD wants to look down on me because of my involvement that is their problem not mine.

Jefferson County Texas (Where is Joseph?)
On April 30th, 2015 a truck was discovered sitting on top of the Rainbow Bridge in Port Arthur Texas. The vehicle was running, and a man’s wallet and personal items were inside. He was last seen at 10:30pm April 29th, 2015. His shoes were sitting next to the ledge of the bridge. Many readers may not be aware that this bridge is not only the tallest bridge in the state of Texas it is also the deadliest. Hundreds of people have committed suicide jumping off of it. Per the statistics of the local authorities 99% of the bodies of those who leap off this bridge are recovered.
The vehicle belonged to Joseph Gauthier and his body never surfaced in the Neches River. Many people question if he ever jumped off the bridge at all. He had filed for divorce shortly before his vehicle was found on the bridge. Initially his wife Carole did not contest the divorce but three days later she changed her mind and changed her legal answer. 19 days later Joseph’s truck is found on top of the bridge. Did anyone see him park there? Did anyone see him jump? No on appears to have seen him since earlier that day.
I can tell you from experience that Texas is not a place you want to be missing in. Especially the southeastern side. It has been a problem for decades. In this specific case I was confused with the initial lack of support from the family in finding him. Most family’s want the body recovered for a burial and closure. With this case I solely relied on law enforcement and came to be exposed to many disturbing events. Death threats and intimidation are not unusual and have not dissuaded me in the past.
This case of this young lady was ruled a suicide. Something didn’t add up on it and I wont give up. The crime scene pics appears to look like she was trying to get the cord away from her neck. But that is just my opinion.
What pisses me off are the PI’s who claim to be so “into” these abductions and murders, seems their motive is only money. Unless they can see a way to make a dime, they wont waste their time. I have been working on this for a little while now, I haven’t made a penny on it, at least I have some degree of morality, unlike the private investigators who only do it for money. I out them up there with the wrecker drivers at a car accident.
I made a decision to stop going to the reporters. There is nothing they could do. What it boils down too is that the cops are shutting them down and they merely rely on what law enforcement tells them. Also, it requires a little investigative journalism and work. Most reporters want to do only their ten minute story and go home. They could care less.
Panola County Texas (Lauren Thompson is Missing)
While most missing persons are reported to police after a loved one realizes they are missing, Lauren Colvin Thompson’s case is different: Police were searching for her before she had even disappeared.
“On January 10, at 2:24 in the afternoon, our 911 operator received a call from a female reporting she was in a wooded area and she thought someone was chasing her,” Panola County, Texas Sheriff Kevin Lake told Dateline. “We could hear background noise and it was clear she was running.”
According to the sheriff’s office, search crews from DPS, Texas Rangers, Texas Parks and Wildlife, Texas Forest Service, and the sheriff’s office have conducted extensive ground searches. The Texas DPS aviation division also conducted a search. A single shoe belonging to Lauren Thompson was reportedly found in the woods.
Consider this. Many have turned up missing in east Texas and the general area. Could these people have been killed and processed at a meat processing place and fed to the hogs or God forbid fed to humans? How well do the inmates eat in the Panola County jail? Since you exposed a lot of cover ups there, are they still eating the same food at the jail? Following this case I started reading about cannibalism. There is even a story about the caloric values of human meat. Where have all these folks vanished too? Anyway, just a thought…
Thanks for your help folks
