  • Bridgette Gearen Part 2: The Men in the Dark Car

    20 MAY 2024 · Soon after the murder of 28-year-old Bridgette Gearen at Crystal Beach, Texas, Galveston County Sheriff’s Office investigators came upon a lead that would be the impetus and direction of their investigation. A dark colored SUV was reported as the vehicle driven by Bridgette’s abductor(s). Throughout the past one and a half decades, Lt. Tommy Hansen, who has continued to work the case almost 15 years past retirement, has found the right avenue to investigate and identified strong suspects, but has not been able to collect the evidence needed to satisfy the Galveston County District Attorney. Part 2 of 2. If you have any information about the 2007 murder of Bridgette Lynn Gearen, please contact the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office at (409)766-2300 or (866)248-8477.

  • Bridgette Gearen Part 1: Killing on Crystal Beach

    13 MAY 2024 · In July of 2007, 28-year-old Bridgette Gearen took her little girl to Crystal Beach, located on the Bolivar Peninsula on the Texas coast. A few couples from the law firm where she worked had rented a beach house for the weekend, and as a hard-working mother, Bridgette was looking forward to the down time. At about the weekend’s halfway point, the young mother left the house alone to wait outside for some of the others with whom she was going to take a midnight drive on the beach. When the others came down, however, Bridgette Gearen was nowhere to be found. The following day, she was found viciously murdered near the water’s edge. With few clues found at the scene, Galveston County Sheriff’s Office investigators scrambled to come up with leads to follow. If you have any information about the 2007 murder of Bridgette Lynn Gearen, please contact the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office at (409)766-2300 or (866)248-8477.

  • The Murder of Paula Davenport Part 2: Catastrophe

    6 MAY 2024 · As the Fort Worth Police investigated the murder of 24-year-old Hurst, Texas resident Paula Jean Puckett Davenport, evidence and leads ran out fast. But it didn’t mean they were short of a suspect. In fact, the cops were almost certain they knew exactly who killed Paula in the parking lot of the Brunswick Bowlerland. Everything led back to her physically and psychologically abusive ex-husband. He had motive and his shaky alibi left plenty of opportunity. The man was without a doubt capable, police believed. When a witness to the murder emerged, Detective Claude Davis thought he was zeroing in, and that he’d give the Puckett Family justice. However, the witness was a minor – and her parents refused to let her be involved. Part 2 of 2. We’d like to extend a special thanks to Sara and Eddy Puckett for their contributions to this episode. Thanks also to Buster O’Keefe. If you have any information about the murder of Paula Jean Puckett Davenport, please contact the Fort Worth Police Cold Case Unit at 817 392 4307.

  • The Murder of Paula Davenport Part 1: Cold Blooded

    29 APR 2024 · On April 25th, 1978, 24-year-old Hurst, Texas resident Paula Jean Puckett Davenport left home to go bowling with her company’s league. Though she made it to the parking lot, Paula never made it inside the Brunswick Bowlerland. And more troubling, she never made it back home that night. Paula’s parents reported her missing to authorities in Hurst, but a couple days later another jurisdiction, the Fort Worth Police, were called to the scene of a body discovered in a heavily wooded area in the city’s far east. The body belonged to Paula Puckett Davenport. She’d died from gunshot wounds. As a team of experienced detectives investigated, virtually every trail led to a dead end. Every trail, that is, except for one. We’d like to extend a special thanks to Sara and Eddy Puckett for their contributions to this episode. If you have any information about the murder of Paula Jean Puckett Davenport, please contact the Fort Worth Police Cold Case Unit at 817 392 4307.

  • The Murder of Johnnye Janelle Henderson

    15 APR 2024 · In late August of 1971 11-year-old Johnnye Henderson should have been entering the sixth grade alongside her peers. One morning, however, her mother returned home from a short trip to the store to find Johnnye had vanished. The Odessa Police Juvenile Division didn’t seem too worried about the disappearance, since there were no signs of foul play and civilians who’d searched the large field behind her home said they hadn’t found her there. But when Major Crimes Detectives came on the case three days later, they found Johnnye’s body, which was in an advanced state of decomposition. Though a cause of death could not be determined, Johnnye Henderson’s death was clearly a homicide. If you have any information about the 1971 murder of 11-year-old Johnnye Janelle Henderson, please call Odessa Crime Stoppers at (432) 333-8477 or submit a tip at the Odessa Crime Stoppers website: https://www.333tips.org/unsolved-crimes You can support Gone Cold – Texas True Crime and listen to the show ad-free at patreon.com/gonecoldpodcast Find us at https://www.gonecold.com Follow gone cold on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok, YouTube, and X.

  • Kimberly Norwood Part 3: Hope & Despair

    8 APR 2024 · As the search for Kimberly continued, more folks who craved the spotlight emerged. There was Dallas psychic extraordinaire John Catchings, whose “visions” resulted in nothing more than heartache and wasted time and resources. There were well-meaning folks who came to help, of course, like the Heidi Search Center and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Unfortunately their altruistic efforts also resorted in nothing new being found. One man who came to help – a man who was so inspired by Kimberly’s disappearance that he began researching the nationwide problem of missing children, he said, and began an organization of his own – put the family, Kimberly’s Mother Janice said, through hell. Part 3 of 3. If you have any information about the disappearance of Kimberly Rachelle Norwood, please call the Harrison County Sheriff's Office at 903-935-4888. If you have any information about the disappearance of Michelle Lee Richardson, please contact the Anderson County Sheriff's Department at 903-729-6068.

  • Kimberly Norwood Part 2: Sightings, Letters, & Psychics

    1 APR 2024 · When The Shreveport Times released verbatim portions of troubling letters Kimberly Norwood had written months before her disappearance, it was the first time her parents, Bobby and Janice Norwood, had read them. It was another blow, they said, like the many they felt they’d been hit with at the hands of Harrison County Sheriff Bill Oldham. Out of desperation, the family brought in a Dallas psychic, but what she had to say, which included information that had been previously released in the local newspaper, led absolutely nowhere. But when Janice Norwood found out a neighbor had seen a motorcycle leaving the Caney Creek addition in Hallsville at the same time Kimberly is thought to have vanished, an employee of the family becomes a potential suspect. Part 2 of 3. If you have any information about the disappearance of Kimberly Rachelle Norwood, please call the Harrison County Sheriff's Office at 903-935-4888.

  • Kimberly Norwood Part 1: In the Pines

    25 MAR 2024 · In early May 1989, sixteen-year-old Michelle Lee Richardson vanished from East Texas, the city of Palestine specifically. Just weeks later, on May 20th, another East Texas girl turned up missing under similar circumstances. Kimberly Norwood was a twelve-year-old who loved life and, believe it or not, school. She was experiencing the normal throes of being a preteen, but Kimberly was a good kid who never got in trouble and had certainly never tried to run away. But when she came up missing near her home in the Caney Creek Addition of Hallsville, Texas, the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office were working the case as if she had left on her own. Kimberly took no clothes, however, and left all her money behind. The harder the Norwood’s fought for Sheriff Bill Oldham to allow outside help to come in, the harder he fought against them. All they wanted was their little girl back, and the lawman, as the Marshall News Messenger put it, seemed unmoved by the family’s plight. If you have any information about the disappearance of Kimberly Rachelle Norwood, please call the Harrison County Sheriff's Office at 903-935-4888. If you have any information about the disappearance of Michelle Lee Richardson, please contact the Anderson County Sheriff's Department at 903-729-6068.
