Who Killed 14-Year-Old Claire Hough, Whose Mutilated Body Was Found on Calif. Beach in 1984?

For more than 30 years, police sought the killer of 14-year-old Claire Hough, whose mutilated body was found by a homeless man in 1984 on a stretch of Torrey Pines State Beach near San Diego. She had been sexually assaulted.

The homeless man, Wallace Wheeler, had been sleeping at his sister’s house, which was just 100 feet away from the home of Claire’s grandparents. When he first encountered Claire’s parents, he told them he was a psychic — but for about 30 minutes, while detailing for them his purported powers, he never once mentioned that he discovered a body.

His behavior quickly became a lead pursued by police in the mystery of what happened at the beach, which is the focus of tonight’s episode of People Magazine Investigates, airing at 10 p.m. ET on Investigation Discovery.

Mike Williams

Mike Williams’ mother said she’s always held out hope that her son was alive. She’s devastated by confirmation that he was murdered.

What Happened to the McStays, Who Vanished 3 Years Before They Were Found Buried in the Desert?

In 2010, a picture-perfect family of four vanished without a trace four months after moving into a new house in the San Diego suburb of Fallbrook, California.

Three years later, in November 2013, a motorcyclist stumbled upon a skull in the Mojave Desert and called investigators who — soon after — uncovered two shallow graves containing the remains of a man, a woman and two little boys.

The missing McStay family had been found.

The mystery of who killed them and why will be the focus of Monday night’s episode of People Magazine Investigates on Investigation Discovery.

The disappearance of Joseph McStay, 40, his 43-year-old wife, Summer, and sons Gianni, 4, and Joseph Jr., 3, was largely treated as a missing-persons case until their bodies were discovered in 2013.

As authorities learned, the foursome, who were last seen alive on Feb. 4, 2010, had all been viciously beaten to

Reyna Marroquin murder

Reyna Marroquin was murdered in a case that went cold for 30 years

This week Grave Secrets examines the murder of Reyna Marroquin in a case that took over 30 years to solve.

1999 and some new homeowners were getting ready to move into their house in Nassau County, New York, when the man organising the sale spotted an old barrel in the crawl space. When it was opened he was horrified to find the mummified remains of a young woman.

A forensic examination showed her to be of Hispanic origin, in her late 20s and was nine months pregnant. She was around 5’0 tall and had some quite unusual work done to her teeth and had died from blunt force trauma to her head.

Also in the barrel were two rings, a locket, dye and an address book. The dye matched
