Kristin Smart

This case really sticks with me – and has for a long time – but there HAS been recent updates kind of and we need to talk about it!

If you aren’t aware of Kristin Smart let me fill you in real fast.

Kristin has been missing since the early morning hours of May 25, 1996. An giant search of the campus turned up few clues but not many. Fellow student and party-goer Paul Flores was the last person to see her and is the prime suspect in this still-open case.
At around 2AM on May 25, 1996 the birthday party Kristin was attending had ended and party-goers dispersed, Kristin included. She was apparently so drunk that she passed out on the neighbor’s front yard. A Few friends and a man named Paul Flores found her and offered to help walk Kristin back to the campus while Paul even allowed her to lean on him for support since she was still tipsy. One man, Tim, said goodnight to the group and let Cheryl, Kristin, and Paul head back to the dorms together.
Eventually, the group of three arrived near the dorms. Cheryl lived further down the block from Kristin, so she asked if Paul wanted to see Kristin safely to her room. Paul agreed to walk her to her room and said goodbye to Cheryl. However, Paul claimed that the two parted ways that night, each going to their respective dorm rooms. Many suspected foul play on behalf of Paul.

Now according to KSBY News there has been some sort of updates!
There was a search at Ruben Flores’ house – who is the father of Paul Flores.
Paul has been the main suspect since 1996 and on March 16 – March 17 a blue tent could be seen set up near the home’s back deck Tuesday morning, a section of lattice below the deck had been removed, and investigators with shovels could be seen removing orange buckets from the area. They also used ground-penetrating radar was used to search around the deck.

This case is still considered ACTIVE and ONGOING.

In 2020 they found “items of interest” having to do with Kristin and Paul but they haven’t said much about that either – but whatever happened recently is intriguing…. especially the digging.

According to another news article by KSBY Susan Flores, Pauls mother, has spoken up about Paul.
She was quoted saying “We have no responsibility for her disappearance and what happened to that young woman, and I’ve said it in a court of law.”
But it’s hard to believe her when all the information stacks up as everything pointing to Paul…. but really, what do we know?

What do you think happened to Kristin Smart?

#29 – Teetering Between Good and Evil

Welcome to episode 29 where YET AGAIN we are talking about a cult
I say yet again like we’ve talked about them all the time but it’s only our second one.
So I guess I’ll say “SURPRISE A NEW CULT!”

Today we discuss Jim Jones and Jonestown.
I didn’t know a TON about Jim Jones before I read up on him but I do know he’s an odd duck.
Once you start thinking he’s good you see him do something horrible and vice versa.
JUST PICK A SIDE JIM!!!

Well… he did!

GRAPHIC PICTURE AHEAD

May be a black-and-white image of 1 person and outdoors

He was a monster in the end – and we all saw it coming.
It’s sad to see because the Jonestown massacre was one of the most devastating heartbreaks in history.
Right up until 9/11 this held top tier for most people that died in one massacre.

Spotlight Sunday – The Strangers

Now I know what you’re thinking “it’s a movie…. that’s not real!”
ahhhhh but what if it was?

Think Stephen Colbert GIF by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert - Find &  Share on GIPHY

If you don’t know what movie I am talking about it’s this one….
and I will tell you that I have seen it a billion times and it still scares the crap out of me.

(click the picture to go rent or buy it on amazon!)
BUT there is some truth behind this movie!

Before we move on – answer this simple poll so we can see who knows and who doesn’t before I get into the story!

So the Strangers is a story about a man and woman who to go a house and get harassed by three strangers in masks. It’s quite terrifying – but it’s a really good movie. It’s not 100% truthful but it’s BASED on true events.
Now – for the ‘inspired by’ parts.

The screenplay was inspired by TWO real-life events: the Manson family Tate murders, a multiple homicide, as well as a series of break-ins that occurred in Bertino’s (the writer/director) neighborhood as a child. Some journalists noted similarities between the film and the Keddie cabin murders that occurred in Keddie, California in 1981, though Bertino did not cite this as a reference.

Manson Murders – Tate murders, the shocking and grisly murders of actress Sharon Tate and four other people by followers of cult leader Charles Manson on the night of August 8–9, 1969, in Los Angeles. … After two highly publicized trials, Manson and four of his followers were convicted of all the murders in 1971.

The Manson murders is the most POPULAR theory but I was one of the ones who heard the story about the Keddie murders and it does make sense – so let’s see what you think!

Keddie Cabin Murders – The murders took place in Cabin 28 of the Keddie Resort during the late evening of April 11, 1981, or early the following morning, and the bodies of Sue, John, and Dana were found on the morning of April 12 by Sue’s 14-year-old daughter, Sheila, who had been sleeping at a friend’s house. Sue’s two younger sons, Rick and Greg, as well as their friend Justin Smartt, were also in the house, but were unharmed. Tina – another daughter – was missing from the scene.

Tina remained a missing person until April 1984, when her skull and several other bones were recovered at Camp Eighteen, California, near Feather Falls in Butte County. Multiple leads and suspects were examined in the intervening years, though no charges were ever filed. Some police say the investigation was done poorly and they missed a lot of crucial evidence. Some new leads were been announced in the 21st century, including the discovery of a hammer in a pond in 2016, as well as announcements regarding the discovery of new DNA evidence.

Renewed public interest in the case was sparked in part by the release of the 2008 horror film The Strangers, which various Internet bloggers theorized was inspired by the Keddie murders; despite slight similarities, the film made no such claims to having been based on the crimes. But some STILL think Bertino used these murders as some inspiration for the film.

There isn’t much information about the break-ins in his neighborhood – though I wish there was so we could learn about them – but I’m sure it did have a lot to do with the film.

What do you think?
What theory makes more sense to you or have you heard different theories too?
