CARBONDALE • In an open letter to her Facebook friends and followers, the mother of a 19-year-old found dead in a patch of Carbondale woods in 2014 thanked the investigating agency and prosecutors who filed murder charges against the man believed to have been the last to see her son alive.

On Thursday, a Jackson County grand jury returned an indictment for two counts of felony murder, first degree, against Gaege Bethune of Eldorado, Ill.. The 22-year-old Bethune, believed to be one of the last people to see Varughese, said, in one account, that the two fought and that Varughese got out of his car

Family of El Cajon man missing nearly two years continue search

After almost two years, the family of Elijah “Bear” Diaz, who continue to search for clues in the young man’s disappearance, are hopeful that a nationally-televised program, “Disappeared,” will help them find answers and bring Bear home.

He vanished from his home in the middle of the night along with his TV, backpack and some cash. The family has had no communication with Bear and believes

Inside a Homicide Detective’s 14 Years on the Beat — and His 99 Percent Clearance Rate

Much of retired homicide detective Rod Demery’s life has been shaped by death.

When he was 3, a pair of solemn-faced policemen showed up on his grandmother’s doorstep to tell them his mother had been murdered — stabbed nine times in the back by her husband. Then, when Demery was in his 20s, his brother was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

But for more than 25 years, Demery worked at the police department in Shreveport, Louisiana, determined to break the cycle of violence that tore his family apart.  He will be featured in Murder Chose Me, a new series debuting on Investigation Discovery.

PEOPLE can exclusively premiere a clip from the reality show, which has a special premiere Sunday night.

Re-examining the Brutal Slaying of High Schooler Adrianne Jones, 21 Years Later

The brutal 1995 slaying of Adrianne Jones, an exuberant and well-liked Texas high school student, is being re-examined in Monday night’s episode of People Magazine Investigates, on Investigation Discovery.

The case surprised investigators from beginning to end, as PEOPLE Senior Editor Alicia Dennis explained in a Friday appearance on People Now. “[Adrianne’s] body was found in a rural area in Mansfield, Texas, and the whole community was just appalled,” she said.

More surprising still was the truth of who killed Adrianne.

Investigators say David Graham and Diane Zamora, two of Adrianne’s classmates — and high school sweethearts themselves — confessed to her killing, which Zamora ordered in a jealous rage when she learned Jones and Graham had once had sex.

As one of Zamora’s family friends told PEOPLE in 1996, “I remember being flabbergasted when I heard
