FROM THE VAULT: A TRUE CRIME PODCAST THREAD! (Formerly True Cold Case Files)

Hello Crimewatchers! I am so glad to be back after that little hiatus during the new year! I have some news to share with everyone concerning TCCF, and because of the awesomeness that CW has offered toward my project, I am happy to release some things in advance of tomorrow's important announcement.

1. We Ran Into A Little Problem: TCCF has always been the place for Daisy and I to discuss cold cases that rarely ever get the attention that they deserved. We tried our best to help bring these cases to light in an attempt to reinvigorate said cases. In fact, we have an interesting number of people who tune into the Anchor podcast vs. our YouTube channel. However we had some issues ranging from a creative "snag" on my end, in which I kinda lost my motivation, to equipment failure. Some of these problems, along with others, resulted in me taking a break from TCCF. In the spare time I had, I converted the shows on Anchor to YouTube format; giving the YouTube Channel new life since I was posting videos on there for Season 1.

2. A New Outlook: Then we fast forward to last week. I decided I needed to make some changes to the programming, and because of this, the result is that the rest Season 2 WILL BE HAPPENING! With that said, we have decided to cut the number of episodes down to 10. The list of cases to be covered will be covered in a minute. We will pick up on Season 2 in March, and should be finished by April. We are exploring the possibility of not timing the episode releases; instead focusing on a more spontaneous release. We may have two episodes released in one week, one episode in a week, or more than two in a week! Who knows? I'll keep everyone posted.

3. A New Co-Host: With a new outlook comes some changes. Daisy Chains was my co-host and has always been a dear friend of mine for a while. But then in January, when I hit a creative snag, I decided to take a break. When I brought the break up to Daisy, she agreed that she needed to no longer be involved because of how depressing and stressful the content could be. I can respect that because I experienced the same stress as well. So with the reinvigorated Season 2, I decided to bring in a new co-host. Most of you probably know him: It's Nick Wagler of the Unidentified Wiki website! Nick accepted my invitation to co-host the show just recently and I am looking forward to working with him and hearing his input on the cases we cover.

4. The Cases: Nick and I plan to bring the listeners 10 MORE CASES! That will cap our show off at 20 episodes. The episodes will be as follows in order (DATES AND TIMES TO BE ANNOUNCED):
  1. Tiffany Sessions and Kamrie Mitchell (Missing in Florida Spotlight) feat. Stefani Warden, Kamrie's mother
  2. George Hawkins and the Carroll County, KY Doe feat. Todd Matthews of NamUs
  3. Troy Galloway Disappearance feat. Nancy Galloway, Troy's mother
  4. Walker County Jane Doe
  5. Opileka Jane Doe
  6. Belle Chasse John Doe
  7. Spokane Valley Jane Doe
  8. Kenneth Saunders Disappearance
  9. Marjorie Luna Disappearance
  10. Joanie Hall Disappearance​
That's all I have for now! I am excited to have the chance once again to promote the podcast with CW's help! ALSO: If you have a case you would like for me to cover, feel free to post it on the board, or message me! I also can be reached via email at jpfproductionslead@gmail.com

Thanks Everyone!

THE BIG REVEAL: 20 FRESH CASES/PROGRAM UPDATES 6-9-2020

Hello everyone,

Today is the day that Crimewatchers members get a look at the upcoming season lineup--A DAY AHEAD OF EVERYONE ELSE!!! It is an exclusive benefit of being a CW member, a thanks to CW for helping TCCF promote the podcast throughout the forum. Before the list, I'd like to add some updates and fixes to the current season that you should expect. They are:

A. NEXT EPISODE SUBJECT: The next episode was planned to cover the case involving the 1988 murders of Robert and Frieda Wheatley of Portland, Oregon. Unfortunately, we are close to production on the episode and we were unable to get the information we needed to cover the case. Portland Police Bureau never responded to our emails regarding the case; and we reached out to Frieda's son, but he never returned our messages. With that, we made the unfortunate decision to move on and replace the episode with a discussion on LGBTQ+ murders; with focus on the murders of trans women and men, as well as cold case hate crimes against the LGBTQ+ community. More information to follow soon.

B. SOUND QUALITY: The last few episodes, we have noticed that since switching to exclusively using the Anchor App to record our shows, we've noticed how much poorer the sound quality has been getting. On that note, it appears that if we have proper podcasting equipment (microphone, proper podcast editor, etc.), it would enrich the sound quality immensely; especially if we could record straight from the computer and not through our phones. We are working on a small project to raise money so we can get better equipment; which we hope to have by the time Season 2B comes around. In the meantime, we are going back to the original sound program that we used before using the Anchor app, which should improve the sound hopefully. The only consequence is that Nick (aka @Gourami Watcher) will have to go back to calling into the studio for now.

SEASON 2B LINEUP: With all that said, time to reveal the other half of our upcoming season! Nick and I spent reasonable time going over cases to cover, and also the requests that we have been getting from followers. With that, here is what we plan to release....

S2 EP26: Taylor McAllister, Murdered December 22nd, 2016, St. Petersburg, Florida
S2 EP27: Kayla Berg, Missing August 11th, 2009, Antigo, Wisconsin

S2 EP42: Rae Elaine Tourtillot, Murdered October 14th, 1986, Keshena, Wisconsin
S2 EP43: SOLVED CASE: Krista Harrison, Murdered July 17th, 1982, Marshallville, Ohio (Robert Buell convicted of her murder)
S2 EP44:
S2 EP45 (Season Finale): Hendrixville John Doe, Found December 21st, 1991, Hendrixville, Alabama


This upcoming lineup, we plan to experiment with covering solved cases, as a way to honor the victim and show that they also are never forgotten. We hope that we can tell each story in a respectable manner. We are looking forward to Season 2B, and hope that you all join us! :)

TOMORROW!!! New episode of From The Vault will be released! The topic is the case of missing 8 year old Marjorie Luna! We react to the Palm Beach Co. Sheriffs Office’s documentary “The Lead” and discuss the case while watching it! I’ll be joined by guest co-host Gwen Barringer!

A big part of our discussion does focus on both the Rambo Bros. and especially Victor Wonyetye; who has been considered the strongest person of interest in this case. We talk about this and more tomorrow! Link will be posted when released!
