The parents of deceased Joshua Thomas, 18 and Alex Mullins, 21 claims Grossheim provided “step-by-step” instructions on how to commit suicide.
Both Mullins and Thomas are believed to have died by self-hanging in his dorm room of the AKL fraternity house.
The lawsuit also claims that Grossheim has three other victims that he coached into suicide. Each of the five victims was close friends with Grossheim, they were in the same fraternity, and he was the last to see them alive. Each victim had suicidal ideation and expressed thoughts of depression. The fifth victim, a female in her twenties, has not been identified by police.
GROSSHEIM’S ‘GROSS’ OBSESSION WITH DEATH
This guy has an obsession with dead bodies and portrayed himself as a “superhero” around campus by offering free counseling.
Missouri frat leader Brandon Grossheim, 22, Alpha Kappa Lambda, ‘encouraged’ 5 students to hang themselves, claims parents’ lawsuit. Last to talk to them or 1st to find their body, he began wearing 1 victim’s clothes & dating his gf shortly after his death https://t.co/NShC8aAwRp

He even referred to himself as a “peacemaker.”
Other frat bros told police that Grossheim has a “fascination with death” according to the lawsuit.
He also started wearing the clothes and dating the girlfriend of one of the deceased boys.
Here’s what I want to know – who the fuck is a girl that was cool with this asshole wearing her dead boyfriend’s clothes and sleeping with her?
This ass-hat even posted a memorial post on his Facebook.
The lawsuit also claims that Grossheim was spotted with a large number of drugs and stolen case from one of the men’s dorm rooms.
The lawsuit also states that Grossheim found his grandmother’s body following her death when he was a young kid, so maybe that plays some role.
MAYBE THIS WAS A STAGED MURDER??
According to the lawsuit, Grossheim was the last person to see the victims, and he “handled the body” of some of the boys before the police arrived.

SAVANNAH SPURLOCK FOUND DEAD; NAKED, BOUND WITH DUCT TAPE, DUMPED BY STORAGE SHED
Well guys, here we have another tragic case.
Savannah Spurlock, 22, went missing on Jan. 5th, 2019 after leaving a Lexington, Kentucky bar with three men. Video surveillance shows Spurlock leaving The Other Bar, and she appears to be very intoxicated.
Her Facebook says she is a “Beautiful mother of four: Noah, Jace, Zuri, and Zane
Taken from earth home to Heaven too soon.”
Initially, Savannah went out with a girlfriend. All she wanted was to have a good night out; the first night out since she gave birth to her two youngest twins in December. Sadly, these children will have no memories of their mommy.
I have not confirmed how they knew each other if you know, please comment. David (driving separate in his pickup), the two other men, and Savannah then drive 40 miles (about an hour) to a property owned by the Sparks family where David was residing in Garrand County.
Savannah video calls her mother around 2:30 am saying that she is okay and she will be home in the morning.
Unbeknownst to Savannah, the mother of four will never see her family or children again.
THE SEARCH FOR SAVANNAH BEGINS
Police released surveillance images of Savannah and the men she was with on January 8. If someone can figure out the names of the other two men, please post their names / social profiles in the comment section for me, and I will add it to the blog post.
Police searched the property, and the investigators seized David’s pickup.
On February 5, what would have been Savannah’s 23rd birthday, searches scour corn Kentucky cornfields and other areas near Garrand County.
“I HEARD SCREAMS” BUT I COULDN’T WAKE MY DRUNK HUSBAND
Neighbors of David Sparks heard screaming coming from the home of the night of the murder.
One neighbor fired someone was in trouble, but could not wake her husband.
Why the F*CK didn’t the neighbors call the police baffles me.
“RUMORS FLY THAT SAVANNAH DITCHED TOWN
Early in the investigation and before Savannah’s body was discovered naked, bound, and dumped near the storage shed, many starts speculating that maybe the mother of four left towns.
I did find two arrest citations for Savannah and pairing that with her appearing extremely drunk, we can speculate that she did have an alcohol problem.
Her mugshot and arrest bio claims police booked Savannah in Madison County, KY on dec. 21, 2018, for a DUI.
“SHE WAS SO DRUNK SHE COULDN’T SPEAK, IT WAS LIKE SHE COULDN’T SPEAK ENGLISH”
If this story isn’t awful enough already, the two other men who were with her that night recorded cell phone videos of Savannah performing sexual acts on them.
Reports also claim that one of these men were showing the videos at his work to co-workers.
DAVID’S COUSIN, JASON SPARKS, TAKES TO THE INTERNET WITH NEAR ILLEGIBLE RANTS
Maybe these angry Facebook messages from the cousin can help put the personality of David Sparks into perspective.
THE NEXT MORNING, DAVID TEXT HIS SISTER ASKING WHERE TO BUY A “NEW RUG”
“Hey, where did you get that rug? I’m going to get another one.”
Surveillance shows a receipt of purchase from Walmart the very next day.
REMAINS FOUND BEHIND PARENTS HOME
Police uncovered the remains of Savannah at the home of David Sparks’ parents home when neighbors reported a “foul odor” coming from the property.
The Richmond County Police were notified of a “foul odor” and “possible human remains” emanating from the back of the resident. Ironically it was David Sparks father, Allen Sparks – a local pastor, who first informed the police of the odor.
Spurlock was found naked, bound with duct tape, and doubled over inside several garbage bags.
As of this time, her cause of death has not been determined by the medical examiner, or at least it isn’t public knowledge yet.
SOMEBODY, PLEASE LOCK UP THIS MONSTER
This 23-year-old monster, Sparks was charged with abuse of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence.
We are still waiting for news on upcoming court dates.
There have been no charges, yet, issued to the two other men who may have been involved in Savannah’s murder.
HELP ME RESEARCH THIS CASE AND I’LL SHOUT YOU OUT ON THE FUTURE EPISODE
Here is a very tragic murder case of a 21-year-old student from the University of Mississippi, Alexandria “Ally” Kostial.
Ally was found dead on Saturday, July 20, 2019, by the Lafayette County Sheriffs Department police doing a routine patrol of Buford’s Ridge near Sardis Lake in Lafayette County, Mississippi – 30 miles away from ‘Ole Miss.’
HONORS STUDENT; GRADUATING IN 2020
According to the father’s Facebook post, Keith Kostial, she was attending summer classes at the campus while also teaching summer fitness classes.
Ally was entering her senior year and set to graduate in 2020 with a marketing degree.
There is a Go fund me page to support Ally’s family here.
‘SWEET, GENUINE AND ALWAYS HAD A SMILE ON HER FACE’
Friends described Ally to local news sources as being a sweet, genuine and happy person.
SHOT 8 TIMES – SEEMS PERSONAL TO ME – NO?
Many sources claim that Kostial was shot 8 times, but that is all anyone knows so far. In speculation, many people feel like something may of “went wrong” Friday night in which she was murdered after.
She was last seen by CCTV Friday night at an Oxford bar close to campus. Footage shows her stopping at the door, but not entering the bar.
Her roommates reported her returning to the apartment around midnight and claim they did not hear her leave again.
A report from People suggests that Ally was “dumped” at the lake meaning that she was perhaps killed at another spot.
BRANDON THEESFELD – THE KILLER – MOST LIKELY
Investigators tracked Theesfeld to the gas station in South Memphis using his cellphone and credit cards. He was spotted entering the service station wearing an Ole Miss tee.
Police have arrested a 22-year-old student, Brandon Theesfeld who was also a student at the University of Mississippi. Officials have not yet confirmed how the two knew each other.
Justice is finally here for the mother of Christine Cole, a 10-year-old girl who disappeared on January 6th, 1988 in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
Christine went three blocks from her mother’s apartment and to the store to grab a gallon of milk but never came back home.
Fifty-six days later, the body of Christine Cole washed up on Conimicut Point in Warwick; both her mother and stepfather identified her by her clothes.
There was also someone else’s blood on her jeans.
Now three decades later and Joao Monteiro (28 at the time) was arrested Wednesday for the murder of the 10-year-old.
POLICE HAD THE BEST HAND
It all started last November the Pawtucket Police Department put out playing cards that each feature a cold case.
The idea is to ‘spark’ someone’s memory of a case when they see a specific card, and Christine Cole’s case was the first success so far.
As for the blood found on Christine Cole’s jeans in 1988?
Police traced the DNA through Monterio’s son, who submitted his DNA before serving time for conspiracy and possession of a “stolen motor vehicle or parts.”
At the time of the murder, Joao Monterio lived at 78 Slater St. in Pawtucket apartment directly above Saints Market, where Christine went to buy milk that day.

25-year-old Christy Mirack was beautiful both inside and out. Her friends described her as being optimistic about life and always upbeat and positive. A teacher at Rohrerstown Elementary School in Lancaster County, PA, who truly cared about her students; in turn, she was loved and endured by everyone she knew personally.
The town Mirack resided was and still is, known as Pennsylvania Amish country. She lived with a female roommate in a three-bedroom apartment with a female friend in East Lampeter Township.
With her Christmas shopping completed Mirack spent the evening wrapping presents and writing notes to each of her 6th-grade students. Mirack had wanted to be a teacher since she was a little girl, and now at 25, she was living her dream. But this would all change in just 24 hours from now when Christy Mirack doesn’t show up for her class at 9am.
Monday morning and ready for another week of school, it was December 21st, 1992. Christy’s roommate had already left, and she was getting ready to go as well. It was a breezy and cold day, so she grabbed her gifts and her work supplies and opened the apartment door to face the winter chill.
Christy Mirack never made it to school that day, in fact, she never even made it to her car. As soon as she stepped from her townhouse, she was shoved back inside by a killer.
Harry Goodman, the school principal, knew within minutes that something was wrong when 9am arrived and Christy did not. He called her home. No answer. Goodman decides to drive by her home. He sees her front door open, and he immediately knew something horrible has happened.
Christy was dead and lying on her floor. Beaten, strangled, with her pants ripped off. Around her lifeless body was the gifts that she planned to give to her students scattered around her.
As horrible as the crime scene was, there was not much the scene could tell investigators. Detectives noticed no forced entry to the home; however, they did discover DNA from semen both on Christy and on the apartment’s carpet. Investigators collected the sample and began to notify Christy’s family and friends. This will be one Christmas that no-one would enjoy.
A KILLER ON THE LOOSE
A description of a potential suspect was released to the public, as well as a possible lead of the suspect’s car. For the next few years, there were very few solid leads in the case. 1,500 suspects were interviewed by police. The DNA from the killer’s semen was tested, and 60 men were ruled out by 1995. As Christy’s family continued to suffer, the case started becoming colder.
In 2007 Christy’s younger brother, Vince decided to try to drum up interest in the unsolved case. A billboard was displayed off Route 30 in Lancaster County, and a Facebook page was also set up, which encouraged people to share memories and information.
CAN NEW ADVANCES IN DNA CATCH CHRISTY’S KILLER?
Now almost three decades have past and the case of who murdered 25-year-old Christy Mirack is ice cold, however, with new advances in DNA technology could provide the family with hope. Parabon NanoLabs, which has been featured on some other cases like the Faith Hedgepeth discussion, was contacted to provide a DNA phenotyping profile. Parabon using the DNA collected from the semen of Mirack’s killer produced an age-progression image that shows the public what he looked like at 25, 45, and 55.
In May of 2018, Parabon uploaded the DNA sequence found in Christy’s apartment to an online database called GEDmatch, which systematically links profiles of relatives, giving investigators a much narrower window of suspects. This ancestral DNA profile matching has been hugely successful in the past, even finally bringing the Golden State Killer, Joseph DeAngelo to justice one year ago.
A few weeks after GEDmatch was used, Parabon NanoLabs notified detectives that they found a highly possible match within their database of Christy Mirak’s killer. The suspect was actually a relative of Christy.
JUSTICE IS SERVED
At the time of Mirack’s death, 49-year-old Raymond Rowe lived just 4 miles from her Pennsylvania apartment. Rowe would have been 24 at the time in 1992.
A local DJ (called DJ Freez) at the time, Rowe played in clubs both large and small around Lancaster County and also owned and operated a DJ equipment rental company.
Investigators knew that if they wanted to arrest Rowe, they needed to recover his DNA first. This was tricky since they did not want to spook him, so they decided to go undercover.
On May 31st, the 49-year-old still DJ was working at a local school dance. Investigators attended the event and eventually seized a stick of chewing gum and a water bottle tossed out by Rowe.
The DNA on both the water bottle and chewing gum matched the DNA in Christy Mirack’s apartment. In fact, as a forensic scientist working on the case would later claim the odds of it NOT being Rowe was 1 in 200 octillion. After nearly three decades, Christy Mirack’s family and friends will finally get a resolution to this haunting case.
Police arrested Raymond Rowe on Monday, June 25th, 2018 for the heinous murder of Christy Mirack.
Here we have a bizarre murder case that should have been solved by now.
STABBED TO DEATH IN A TEXAS CHURCH
Fitness instructor and mother of three, Terri “Missy” Bevers, 45, was brutally stabbed to death inside a Texas church shortly before she was scheduled to lead an early morning fitness class on April 18, 2016.
Just minutes before her death around 4: am the Creekside Church of Christ motion-activated security cameras
On April 18, 2016, a CCTV video at the recorded the following video.
The killer is oddly dressed in full SWAT gear, and the hammer he or she is wielding becomes the ultimate murder weapon used to bludgeon Missy to death.
According to police, Bevers died of “multiple puncture wounds” to her head and chest consistent with what the suspect on surveillance was seen carrying.
As a fitness trainer, Missy would teach 5 am classes at the community church. (she was murdered shortly before one of these classes)
Missy was also a married mother of three and very active in the community.
Missy and her husband, Brandon Bevers, were reported to have bothfinancial and marital issues.
Brandon was 600 miles away on a fishing trip during the murder.
The killer can be anywhere between 5 ft 2 in and 5 ft 7 in.
Killer has a distinctive walking gait (notice the persons right foot in the video)
A 2010- 2012 Nissan Altima (not yet identified) was seen driving through the parking hours before the murder. Entered 1:58am and exited 2:04am (See video)
A burglar – I would not consider a burglar to be a plausible killer, even though it is thought that the person in the video was smashing the glass and opening doors to possible make it look like a break-in, however, this was at 4: am.
The husband Brandon Beavers – has been ruled out due to him being 600 miles away on a fishing trip at the time.
Randy Bevers (Missy’s father-in-law) – everything points to Randy, such as:
A few days after Missy was murdered, Randy Bevers was noticed bringing a blood-stained shirt to the cleaners, a woman’s XXL t-shirt. Randy claimed it was blood from a dog injury; supposedly, his vet confirmed the story.
Randy is around the same height and weight as the person in the surveillance footage.
Randy has a motive of freeing his son from a financially strained relationship; Missy may have been cheating on her husband as well some reports say.
Randy has a nearly identical walking gait. (watch video)
Here is the husband, Brandon Bevers giving a statement to reporters:
*However, apparently Randy Bevers has an alibi and was traveling to California during the time of the murder.
What a crazy coincidence that both father and son would be out of town during the murder. 🤔
Hey guys for your daily dose of true crime I decided to discuss a 2011 murder that gives meaning to the term ‘bad cop.’
We’re traveling to Buena Vista, Michigan on the night of August 31, 2011, where two Saginaw County police officers arrive at a harrowing scene.
Parked to the side of a secluded road and near the police department shooting range is a Pontiac Aztec with the driver’s door opened and secured from the top luggage rack is an extension cord with its other end wrapped around Jenny Webb, a 32=year-old mother to be (8 1/2 months pregnant).
From first glance, this looks like a suicide.
Buena Vista Township Police Officer Kenneth Bluew (pronounced blue) was the first to arrive at the scene that night followed shortly by Officer Tim Patterson.
The officers check the deceased woman’s car and purse for any identification. It’s when they reach into her pocket that they pull out what appears to be a typed suicide note.
MY BABY’S DADDY IS A MARRIED COP
Jennifer Webb was, by all accounts, a happy woman looking forward to starting a life with her first child. She rarely discussed the identity of the father; this may be because he was already married. And not only was he married, but he was also in law enforcement.
Dawn Webb, the mother, recalls to media sources that her daughter didn’t realize she was even pregnant until month 5, and as far as she was concerned, wanted to raise the baby alone without the help of the already-married father.
The suicided note explained how Jenny ruined her life by getting pregnant, and the only way now is to commit suicide.
If this entire scene seems like a setup, then you are right on the money.
Dawn Webb claimed that her daughter couldn’t have ‘typed’ the suicide note and tells media sources “if Jenny had written a suicide note, it would have been in her handwriting, in a glitter pen, in purple or green or pink. It would have never looked the way it did.”
As Gary Ginther and Valerie Bowman (forensic scientist) began processing the scene, they noticed a pair of discarded flip flops off the side of the road.
Finding this gave them the impression to check around the crime scene as well where they found a trove of crime scene evidence nearly 195 away from where the body lay resting.
A discarded cigarette butt with DNA remnants lay on the pavement. Next to that was a drop of blood and besides that was a single necklace charm (confirmed as belonging to Jenny Webb).
A new theory was now emerging, and by this point, the perspective of a simple suicide became one of homicide. Since most of the evidence was 195 feet away, detectives now knew that the body most likely was moved post-mortem, and most likely moved to the new location in the back of her car.
After her work day ended, Webb went to visit one of her best friends, Andrea King, and help with her newborn twin girls. Unfortunately, Webb wouldn’t stay long as she had plans to meet up with her future baby’s daddy. Andrea King tells sources, “I said, ‘Oh, what are you guys getting up about?’ And she says, ‘We need to discuss this whole child support thing.”
According to Andrea, Jenny Webb was going to be discussing putting the married cop’s name on her baby’s birth certificate.
Remember the discarded cigarette butt found near the crime scene? The DNA analysis came back matching Officer Kenneth Bluew, who happened to be the first officer at the scene.
What’s more is there were even more bloodstains found at the scene, on the extension cord, in Jenny’s car, and even in Bluew’s patrol car.
Det. Sergeant Sean Waterman was on location helping process the crime scene that night along with state police and the crime lab. Sean told sources that as he was working the crime scene, Officer Bluew pulls up in civilian clothes, in which he was immediately ordered to return to headquarters an await an interview.
ON DUTY, OFF RADIO
According to Officer Patterson, Ken’s partner, Bluew ‘went dark’ for nearly an hour and a half that same night while on duty. Patterson, frustrated that Bluew wasn’t answering his radio calls, drove to the secluded spot because he knew that’s where Bluew would go when he wanted to sleep on the job.
Only then did he pull up to Bluew’s patrol car noticing that he looked “disheveled” and was sweating. Bluew walked up to Patterson and said that he just found the dead girl and was about to call Patterson.
KEN COP BOO
A search of the recent calls from Jenny Webb’s cellphone showed three calls that night before the “suicide” all to the phone of Officer Bluew, in which Webb had labeled the contact Ken Cop Bluew.
Officer Patterson knew that it was Ken’s number, and this may have been when he began to get suspicious of his partner’s potential involvement.
Court testimony from Dr. Kanu Virani, the Chief Medical Examiner, claims that there was no possible way that Jenny Webb’s death was a suicide, and had to result in strangulation by “chokehold.”
What’s more, Webb had bruisings on her head, arms, face, chest, and neck. Plus the ligature mark from the extension cord was caused post-mortem.
Ironically, in Officer Bluew’s car was a defensive training manual in various types of chokeholds.
The evidence mounted against Officer Bluew was damning already, but detectives found another piece of vital evidence that not only points to the killer but also describes a theory of the crime.
On Webb’s clothing was the tip of a latex glove (the right index finger) and DNA from the blood inside the glove was a perfect match to Officer Bluew. Outside the glove was blood matching both the killer and his victim and also Webb’s saliva.
REENACTING THE CRIME
During the of 9:05 and 10:30 pm, when Kenneth Bluew ‘went dark’ on his radio, he was meeting with Jenny Webb. She didn’t know at the time, but her married a cop baby’s daddy went there to kill her; this is evident from the typed suicide note which also showed 14 fingerprints (all his and none of hers). Bluew starts to choke Webb, and she fights back eventually bitting Bluew’s right index finger (from the salvia found on the latex glove tip).
Once he was satisfied that Webb was dead, Bluew puts her in the backseat of her car and drives down the road until he is confident he is away from any potential evidence.
He then wraps the extension cord that he brought from home that day (detectives found evidence of this at Bluew’s house) he wraps one in around her neck and the other around the luggage rack of her car.
He then pulls the car off the road and pushes her out the back seat.
Ex bad cop Kenneth Bluew was charged and found guilty of four counts and is now serving a life sentence without parole.

On July 6, 1973 at approximately 1:00 PM, Linda Ann O’Keefe, 13, disappeared from the Corona del Mar area near Newport Beach.
A witness observed a child, matching the description of Linda, get into a late model turquoise van.
The UNSUB has been described as a Caucasian male, between 24-30, brown curly hair, and small droopy eyes.
Linda’s body was found thrown in a ditch a couple hundred yards from her home.
“But now, 45 yrs later, I have a voice again. And I have something important to say. There is a new lead in my case: a face. A face that comes from DNA that the killer left behind. It’s technology that didn’t exist back in 1973, but it might change everything today.” #LindasStorypic.twitter.com/GsZClKFwPj
“Tons of people are looking for me. The helicopter has been scouring the canyons and remote areas of Corona del Mar. My dad is out looking for me too, with some officers. My mom is still home, peering through the curtains at all the activity on our quiet street.” #LindasStory
