True Crime and Conspiracy Theories: Atlanta Murders 1979-1981

Note: When summarizing the case, I’m only going to add a paragraph or two. I don’t feel comfortable going into too many details when people have worked hard writing articles about these. I’ll give my brief summary and link or links to the articles I got the information from so that anybody can go back and read up on it themselves.

This Week’s Topic: Atlanta Murders of 1979-1981

Atlanta child murders: Mother of slain boy asks for memorial, questions  swirl about Wayne Williams' guilt |

About The Case:

Between 1979 and 1981, several people were killed in multiple violent ways. It is believed that Wayne Williams was the murderer. He was convicted of two of them, and all but two of the rest of the cases were attributed to them. The victims ages are between 7 and 28. Williams was 23 years old when he was arrested.

In March 2019, Atlanta Police decided to reopen some of the non-confirmed cases. In June 2021, 40% of the original blood samples were tested. Two of them were confirmed in July of 2021.


My Thoughts:

This is one case that I was actually able to talk to somebody who remembers the event to an extent. That person is mom. She lived in surrounding areas during the time of this. She was nine to eleven years old. The biggest thing she remembers of it all is that they mandated a curfew for all surrounding areas. Personally, I can’t imagine how terrifying it must have been to have this going on around them and not know what was going on at all.

This may be the true-crime enthusiast in me, but there’s a part of me that wonders if all thirty of these were committed by the same person. The motives are all over the place. The age range is pretty interesting as well. I’m most likely inaccurate in my assessment, but it does at least give me pause. Either way, I will remember the victims and keep them close to my heart.

True Crime and Conspiracy Theories: Gypsy Rose and Dee Dee Blanchard

Note: When summarizing the case, I’m only going to add a paragraph or two. I don’t feel comfortable going into too many details when people have worked hard writing articles about these. I’ll give my brief summary and link or links to the articles I got the information from so that anybody can go back and read up on it themselves.

This Week’s Topic: Gypsy Rose and Dee Dee Blanchard

Gypsy Rose Blanchard and Dee Dee Blanchard

About The Case:

Gypsy was born in 1991. Her mother made consistent fraudulent claims of Gypsy’s health all of her life. It is believed that she suffered a mental illness that caused her to do this. She also claimed that her and Gypsy were victims of Hurricane Katrina. Gypsy tried to run away in 2011. Her mother tracked her down and brought her back home. In 2015, Gypsy met Nicholas Godejohn online. She wound up convincing him to help kill her mother.

Gypsy claims that she did not know that she was capable of walking and had no health issues at all until her mother was dead. She also claims that she feels freer in prison than she ever did in her mother’s care. She has a chance of being released in 2024.


My Thoughts:

This one really gets to me. On the one hand, I want to be horrified at what Gypsy did to her mother. On the other hand, I am also horrified at what her mother did to her. No matter what happens or how long she stays in prison, her life will be forever altered. The real question is, was her life already permanently altered before her mother was even killed? I don’t know Gypsy or Dee Dee. I can’t really make full assumptions. I feel like there are obviously a lot of holes in this story. What I mean by that is that I don’t think a lot of the story was made public. I just can’t wrap my head around the fact that this was going on for YEARS without anybody being suspicious. Nobody came forward at all? How much freedom was Gypsy allowed? How often did she get to leave the house? Can I feel sorry for somebody and not be okay with what they chose to do?

I think I want to go back and read more about this case before I solidify my decisions further. There’s a big part of me that wonders what would have happened had somebody looked more into what was going on and put a stop to it before Gypsy felt the need to do what she did. Would Dee Dee have gotten the help she needed? What would have happened to Gypsy? Would she have had a normal life that didn’t involve prison? Would she have gotten her freedom in another way? Many of my questions will never be answered. That’s okay though. Some questions just aren’t meant to be answered.

True Crime and Conspiracy Theories: The Introduction!

I know technically this doesn’t really need an introduction. I tried this blog before. However, I consider it an introduction because I’m revamping it entirely. Every week I’ll be talking about a certain true crime or conspiracy theory that I read about. I will give the main facts and some articles for you to read more about if you’re interested. I will also give my opinions on the cases. I may even include some theories of my own for the ones I have theories on. I’m not going to lie, it’s probably going to be centered more on True Crime than it is Conspiracy Theories, but I will get some in.

Some topics I already have planned out:

  1. Atlanta Murders of 1979-1981
  2. Zodiac Killer
  3. Charles Manson
  4. Fred West
  5. Jack the Ripper

Anything that strikes my fancy will go into a folder and when I’m ready to blog about it, I’ll read up fully and piece my blog together. I really hope that you enjoy this. It’s one of the things that I’d make a career out of if I could. Well, researching true crimes and giving my theories. Maybe even trying to help solve unsolved ones. I don’t really want to do the field work of it all, but I’d love to do the research and lab work of it all. Maybe one day. Who knows?

Copycat Cases: New York City Zodiac and Japanese Zodiac

The case has never been solved. It remains an open case to this day.

The Zodiac Killer is known for killing his victims in cold blood. Some of the victims were killed with a gun. A couple of them were stabbed. Out of the seven confirmed cases, two of the victims survived the attack. One of which was able to give a description of the Zodiac to the police.

Months after the first double homicide, the Zodiac Killer started writing to three newspapers boasting about his crimes. He confessed to the known ones and many others. He claims to have killed thirty-seven people in total. He threatened to go on killing sprees if his story wasn’t placed on the front page.

My thoughts:

There are some things that just don’t really make sense to me with all of this. I’ll start with contacting the newspapers. It seems like the safest place to start. I just don’t get vibes that this person was looking to become a celebrity. I’m inclined to believe that either there were two killers or there was someone out there who followed the case really closely and wanted to make a name for themselves so to speak.

Another thing that didn’t really make sense to me is the change in motive in a few of the cases. Out of the seven victims, two were stabbed. The rest were shot. Why would he have stabbed the two and not the rest? Especially when there was a gun on him. He used it to force them to submit. Also, the last known victim doesn’t fit in either. The rest of the victims had been couples. He was a lone cab driver.

Out of the four cryptograms that the Zodiac sent, only one was solved for sure. I’m curious if there are people out there to this day that still try to work to solve these. I am not going to lie, I probably would if I was good at any of that stuff. I’m not. I am good at being curious on what goes on in the human mind during the darkest of times.

I don’t doubt there were more than seven victims. With the way that the victims were killed, it doesn’t seem like something that was just done on a whim. It wouldn’t shock me if there were victims of the Zodiac that were never found. I also wouldn’t be surprised to find that the person who was taunting the media was somebody entirely different than the Zodiac. They could have even been a potential fan of the Zodiac. What I can say for sure is the case is filled with intelligence and rage.

True Crime And COnspiracy THeory: Mapping It Out

So, this week has been very weird. I’ve been very productive and busy, but at the same time, I haven’t. Like I finished three books between Tuesday night and this afternoon. Anyways, one of the things I have accomplished is finding great books from the library to use as sources. One of which will give me enough material for several weeks of topics.

So this week will be planning out a bunch of different True Crime topics to talk about. Every single case I map out will have a Conspiracy Theory to go behind it the following week. I’d also like to do a special blog talking about the glamorization of true crimes as well.

I plan on looking at other places too. I’m very excited to get this blog officially started! I just want to make sure it’s done right. My plan is to include the dates, victims and two paragraphs about the crime itself. The rest of the blog will be centered around my theories and opinions. With Conspiracy theories, it will just be my opinions. Without judgment. This is going to be so much fun!

True Crime And Conspiracy Theories: Possible Topics for Next Week

For those of you who read my blogs, you will know that I announced bringing this back last week. I didn’t manage to get around to picking a topic to talk about this week. I have been preoccupied with other projects. So I have decided to write four possibilities to discuss for next week to make up for it.

True Crime Options

  1. Jeffrey Dahmer
  2. The Zodiac Killer

Conspiracy Theory Options

  1. The Illuminati (Will zero in on specific if I choose this)
  2. The Moon Landing

If you’re interested in seeing any of these, please comment. Or if you’re interested in another one, comment it as well. I’ll have a topic picked out by the end of tomorrow with all luck. I sincerely hope you enjoy all of these.

The Possible Return Of True Crime And Conspiracy Theories

Awhile back, I started a blog series about true crimes and conspiracy theories. I put it on hold because I really didn’t have a lot of personal time to do the research needed to make these blogs really pop. I still don’t, but what I lack in time I make up for in passion. I am passionate on doing the research. So my thought was to pick the topic I would want to talk about on Friday and spend the week doing research in every spare moment or an hour a day or something like that on said topic. That way I can write out the blog on Thursday and have it scheduled for Friday.

I will also be open to taking any suggestions on things you’d want me to do research on. Remember that true crime doesn’t always have to involve murder. There are many crimes out there that can be talked about. The possibilities are endless. I’m excited about it just thinking about bringing it back. Please let me know if you’re looking forward to this! Thank you!

True Crime And Conspiracy Theories For 2020

It’s a cheesy picture. I know. I probably won’t use it again. I just wanted to use an image for this blog. Last week, I posted my first post for this blog series. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. And it would seem like quite a few of you really enjoyed the blog too.

I had some anxieties about continuing doing them. I don’t want to get anything wrong. This isn’t a subject type that you can spend five minutes on and move on. That being said, I made some plans to help ease the anxiety.

I also plan to make a routine of it. I’m going to alternate between three topics: Unsolved Crimes, Serial Killers, and Conspiracy theories. I’ll find one to fit the category for the week and spend the week doing research on the topic. That way my blogs come off more informative.

I do want to point out that while it will still be more informative, I will also still continue putting my opinions as well. Especially the unsolved ones. I’d like to put my own thoughts and theories into those.

I’m really looking forward to putting this out for everybody. I hope everybody enjoys writing them as much as I’ll be writing about them. I’ll still keep my bookish content flowing as well. I can’t tell you all how much I appreciate your support! Please feel free to suggest any topic for this to me at!

The Case Of JonBenét Ramsey

Before I begin writing this blog, I want to state that I am not an expert in this case. I do not own any of the facts or the photos belonging to this case. It’s a case that impacted me greatly when I was a child and that still haunts me to this day.

Most of this blog will be centered around opinions of mine, but I will be including some known facts that I pulled from Google. I’ll include websites I derived from at the end of the blog. I learned most of the information I did from this case through The Cases That Haunt Us by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.

JonBenét Ramsey was born in 1990 in Atlanta, Georgia to John and Patricia Ramsey. She also had an older brother named Burke, born in 1987. The family moved to Colorado in 1991. JonBenét Ramsey was entered into multiple children’s beauty pageants in Colorado. She won five pageants and became a sensation!

On December 26th, the Ramsey’s life would ultimately change forever. Patricia calls 911 to report her daughter missing at 5 in the morning. She discovers a ransom note. Two police officers arrived at the home within three minutes of the call. A search for JonBenét began. Sadly, her body was discovered at 1 PM in the family basement.

I was ten years old when this happened. I can tell you exactly where I was. Exactly how I felt when it was put on the news. I was heartbroken for a girl I never knew. Any time I was around somewhere playing the news for a long time after, I was hoping that there’d be news that the killer was found.

As I grew older, I understood the case more than I did back then. I also stopped thinking about it as much as I did in the beginning. Which made me feel guilty. This family lost a child who never really had a chance to grow. They deserved answers. She deserved justice. They still do and she still does.

What gets to me the most is all the tabloids that push out the lies and the misinformation. Every year around Christmas time or after the new year, there’s articles about how the case has finally been solved! It’s always upset me. I feel it’s an insult to her memory. It’s a mockery.

In 2014, a video was uploaded on YouTube with “evidence” that JonBenét Ramsey was never actually murdered. The murder was faked and that JonBenét Ramsey grew up to be Katy Perry. That was the most mind blowing of all. Now, not only are people giving false hope that the case was solved but they are speculating she may not have died at all! Lovely!

The JonBenét Ramsey case is the first case that ever interested me. I was so young, but I was very impacted by what happened to this beautiful young girl. That’s why I found it fitting that this be the first case I talk about in this series. I really wish that her family was able to find justice. I also hope that she has found peace. She was taken from us so young. She never got to live life.

I have a lot more research to dig through. I also have movies to watch it would appear. I fully encourage everybody who is interested to find out all you can about this case and form your own opinions about it. I really enjoyed the perspective glance that was written in The Cases That Haunt Us. It’s a very enlightening book that covers this case and a few others.

True Crime And Conspiracy Theories Introduction

Image Taken From Google

For as long as I can remember, mysteries have intrigued me. The older I get, the darker my curiosities go. I used to be ashamed of this. I thought it meant there was something wrong with me. I finally talked about it. It doesn’t seem so ominous anymore. I like to see the whys behind cases. If I can ever afford to go back to college, I’d gladly get degrees in both psychology and criminology. Both subjects fascinate me deeply.

The news of JonBenet Ramsey happened when I was ten years old. I wasn’t old enough to fully understand what had happened, but it impacted me deeply. It really hit me emotionally. I wanted them to solve the case. I followed the case heavily over the years. It got to the point where I couldn’t look at the trashy newsletters that bring the case up with nonsense. I feel like it’s an insult to her memory.

Another thing I can remember from my childhood is a bit silly. I was trick or treating in my neighborhood one year. I can’t remember how old I was. I came home and I found a cape and a book laying in our yard. I feel like a normal person would think a child left it behind because they were tired of carrying it. I had different thoughts. A girl disappeared in my yard! Her safety was in question! I never did find the owner of the items, nor do I know what happened to them. It occupied my mind for a full week. I can tell you that much.

I know that I will never make an impact on the true crime stories and conspiracy theories I talk about. I’m even fully willing to admit in advance that I may get some things wrong. I ask that you please correct my mistakes so I can learn and fix my studies of the topic. I’m still learning as I go. I also promise to give my most honest and up front thoughts and feelings about whatever I talk about.

I will welcome any suggestions for this blog series. It will be posted every Friday. I may talk about some topics more than once. I will not make them too redundant. For the most part, it will be for things I discovered more about later that I wanted to update and talk about. I do hope you enjoy!
