What began as a mundane day in March of 1974 turned out to be anything but when two Helena men made a horrific discovery. Concerned about the welfare of their friend, 61-year-old Israel Goss, they found the hard-working and well-to-do business owner lying facedown on the floor of his saw and knife sharpening shop on Euclid Avenue in Helena. Blood everywhere. His head smashed in from several hard blows from a hammer. His throat slit. And the killing of Goss has remained unsolved ever since, at least to members of this Montana community.
This week, hosts Angela Marshall and Blake Simonson give you a sneak peek at the 1974 murder of Israel Goss. The 61-year-old was found beaten to death with a hammer and his throat was slit. And it's a cold case that remains unsolved for members of the Helena community to this day.

It's a case from the 1950's that would become so cold that more than half-a-century would pass before it could finally be solved: The Lovers' Lane Slayings. Last week on 'Montana Murder Mysteries,' after combing through old newspaper clippings and speaking to both the Cascade County Sheriff and the lead detective on this case, Podcast Hosts Angela Marshall and Blake Simonson revealed more about the tragic shooting deaths of 18-year-old Lloyd Duane Bogle and 16-year-old Patricia Kalitzke outside of Great Falls in 1956. Decades later, a fresh pair of eyes and a more thorough look at the evidence would point investigators to the discovery of a sexual assault-- a crime too taboo to talk about for the time. But it's this knowledge of the sexual assault that would lead investigators down a new path of tracking down a suspect. How new DNA technology was used to close the file on what may be the oldest cold case in the country: "The Lover's Lane Slayings.' Here is Part Two.
In the Season 5 Premiere of our award-winning podcast, Angela Marshall and Blake Simonson open the files on a now-solved cold case that has recently made national headlines: the 19-56 'Lovers' Lane Slayings.' Joyful Patricia Joyce Kalitzke, 16, and her handsome Airman boyfriend, Lloyd Duane Bogle, 18, were found on a dirt trail that followed the Sun River near Wadsworth Park outside of Great Falls. The couple had been shot to death execution style. And the suspect seemingly slipped away somewhere in Montana or beyond. In the first of this two-part podcast, they speak with the lead investigator on this case and sift through old newspaper clippings to take you back to the murder and the initial investigation and to learn just why the case remained cold for six-and-a-half decades.
On February 24th, 2021, friends and family members gathered for a memorial walk in honor of Kymani Littlebird on what would have been his 20th birthday.

A subsequent investigation by the BIA found no signs of foul play in his death and the coroner ruled his death a suicide. But his family vehemently disputes that conclusion and continue to cry out for justice.
Hosts Angela Marshall and Blake Simonson bring you 'breaking news' of what is believed to be one of the oldest cold cases in the country, now solved using forensic genetic geneology testing. And it's a cold case that originated in Montana.
