Investigation Discovery to feature case of Spartanburg woman who disappeared for six years

A former missing person case in Spartanburg will be featured in an upcoming episode of “Gone” on the Investigation Discovery network next week.

Michele Whitaker disappeared in 2002 without any clues to her whereabouts. Then, on the sixth anniversary of her disappearance, she was found alive.

She has since returned to the area and is living a productive life, said her mother, Laura Andrews.

The episode highlights Andrews’ effort to find answers. An argument between mother and daughter about Whitaker’s rebellious behavior prompted her to leave, according to a statement from Investigation Discovery.

Andrews said by phone this week that Whitaker left because she felt no one would care if she was gone.

“She would sometimes not speak to me in a few days but something told me that it was different. Her not being around even for a few days,

Program to feature Baytown murder

On Halloween 1985, a madman walked the streets of Baytown. 

Mary Stiles, an 11-year-old Horace Mann Junior School student, had gone out trick-or-treating dressed in Care Bear pajamas with her hair in pigtails. She was later found dead, her body hidden under some leaves and tree limbs behind an apartment complex on Northwood Drive. 

Tonight, the tale of her shocking murder is being featured on “On the Case with Paula Zahn” at 9 p.m. on the Investigation Discovery Network.

Investigation Discovery to feature Kingsville shooting – KZTV10.com | Continuous News Coverage | Corpus Christi

KINGSVILLE –

It was August 9, 2003. A break-up between a Kingsville couple takes an unforeseen turn when an ex-lover turns to a felonious solution.

Former career law enforcement officer Alberto Benitez never expected that the dissolution of his seven-month relationship with Elizabeth Reynolds would result in an attempted murder on his life.

A presumable retaliation involving a convicted criminal’s past, Benitez never perceived a home invasion as an actual murder-for-hire arranged by his former intimate companion.

It was a case that drew national attention as the story unfolded in an investigation by the intended target.

Benitez’s story is a part of the Investigation Discovery’s new tv show “Murder Calls.”

You can watch the full episode tonight at 9 p.m.

National TV show to feature homicide case of Spartanburg teen Alex Davon Buckman

A 2005 Spartanburg County homicide is being featured on a cable television show and is helping a grieving family heal.

Investigation Discovery’s “I, Witness” will air at 9 p.m. Wednesday and feature the case of Alex Davon Buckman, a 17-year-old who was killed and dismembered and dumped in an Abbeville landfill.

The show will feature LaCresha Stanton, Buckman’s sister, who was at the forefront of search efforts during the roughly eight months preceding the discovery of his remains.

Stanton said was busy working with investigators and organizing search parties after her younger brother disappeared on March 23, 2005. She never had time to process the loss, but working on the television show finally gave her that chance, she said.

“When I started to do the show, my ‘bottom’ happened. Mentally, I shut down. I had to deal with it. It was the
