Around 1 A.M. on October 15th, 2018, Barron County Sheriff’s Department receives a 911 call. What sounds to be a struggle and screaming on the other end of the line triggers deputies to drive to the home which the number was registered to. Upon arrival, deputies found 56-year-old James Closs and his wife, 46-year-old Denise deceased from apparent gunshot wounds. Quickly, they find out that the Closs’ 13-year-old daughter was missing from the house. Despite all of the searches, rumors and theories, it wouldn’t be until 88 days later when 13-year-old Jayme Closs wandered down a road 70 miles away from her home, finding a Good Samaritan who recognized the young girl and was able to notify law enforcement. But who was it that took her? And why did they kill her parents? It was a story that shocked the nation and showed that strangers are capable of anything…

We’re taking a deep dive into the world of YouTube rant channels in the early 2000s. Tony48219 loved to sit in his computer chair and shout at the camera about evolution, geocentrism, women, and atheists. Most of his abrasive opinions were met with expected opposition online.  As unpopular as his opinions could be, nothing is as unpopular and unbelievable as what happened when he took his online anger and acted upon it in the real world.

I listen to this show all the time while I'm driving, this time I started to dry reach and had to pull over to pull myself together. Truely horrendous. . .

Instead of sounding ironic and sarcastic at the beginning Mike just sounds like an asshole... it doesn't make anyone more sympathetic towards you. You're reinforcing what all your critics are saying when you act like a kid who didn't get his ice cream.

So Alton Nolen gets a death sentence but Vince Li gets set free? And they both suffer from the same mental illness and committed the same crime? Hmm. I mean I know they’re in different countries but damn.

Pro Tip: If someone pulls into your driveway late at night with a ski mask on and armed with a shotgun, prepare to make an escape and call emergency help. If confronting armed intruder, be equipped with more than a flashlight. It was tough to hear that the Father saw the car pull in the driveway and had the jump on him, but made the wrong call...

Something seems... off about this whole thing.... he honestly never said why he took her? And just kept her under the bed? She never said why he did/said to her? And supposedly she was never assaulted but he had to register as a sex offender? Seriously he kept her for 3 months... what, as a pet? On a whim? I’m not buying it....

I was thinking the girl had something to do with it the entire time. I am still not convinced she didn’t.

I feel so very sad for this person who we dont know his real name.. I really hope you find it within yourself to go talk to someone about what has happened to you. They WILL NOT just look at you as the 'kid who was raped/the kid who got molested' i promise... They will help you, and in the long run it will help many aspects of your life. Please talk to someone. You must feel so heavy in your soul. Please let someone lift your heaviness and help you get through this :(

Mike acting like he knows the new generation, and making it sound like how he described it is their fault if that's true. stop with this shit talking and get to what the shows about, the monsters, not dumb politics. GIVE IT TO ME NOW MIKE! 😂
