The Junior story. 15 yr old got beat / sliced to his death. Ran to the hospital himself , everyone around watched this happen to him , 5 grown “men” did this this to him.

I'd have to say the Polly Klass murder. This was in my county and I had a child her age (tho he was a boy)
and the Zodiac killer. (also near us growing up) It was all over the news and scared alot of us.
Only other one was BTK. So glad he was caught.

I've always been fascinated with the JonBonet Ramsey case. I even bought a television off her brother one time off one of those "yard sale" sites. His email name shocked me and I had no idea at the time he was attending Purdue University, where I lived near and near where he wanted to do the exchange.

That being said, and the fact that I write a true crime blog, one that I read recently had the ability to shock me. A woman I work with mentioned that her daughter was murdered in 1995. I read the appeal papers and for the first time in a long time I literally gasped when I read it. A teenager (who she knew) and two young men lured her 15 yr old daughter to go with them. They drove her to a remote area, beat her, raped her, repeatedly ran over her with their vehicle and left her body to be found the next day.

The Jamie Bulger case, it haunted me as my son was the same age and looked similar. The fact that a toddler could be abducted murdered and tortured by other children was just horrendous.
Every mother knows the panic of losing sight of a child for a few moments , this was every mothers nightmare.

This was indeed shocking and very sad. I remember it being all over the news here ( I live in new York) and as everything unfolded I was more and more disgusted. Saddest thing is it's not even close to over.

Jacob Wetterling. It was so absolutely mind blowing that the case was solved and he was found. He was close to my age and his kidnapping felt like the end of the innocence for a lot of parents in our area.

Bundy was also another scary one.
I happened across an article in
TV guide. It showed like 20 different pictures and all of them were of Bundy.
I'd never heard of him prior to reading this article.
wow.

For me, it was Johnny Gosch. I was working up the nerve to ask my parents for a paper route when he was abducted delivering the Des Moines Register. A year or so later, Eugene Martin was abducted doing the same thing. Needless to say, I never asked to get a paper route.

The other big one was a woman who disappeared and was later found in a fridge floating down the Mississippi River. She was the only child of the high school band director. As a band geek, it just made the whole thing weird - taking lessons from the man.

Then there was the mentally ill kid who did a mess of mailbox bombings, some of which killed people. His whole goal was to make a giant smiley face on the map of the lower 48 states by his bombings. I really feel for that guy's family, and the guy himself as with a more robust mental health system, he probably would never have gone in that direction. Know the family of one of his victims, and the randomness of the whole thing has really dislodged their sense of safety.

Then there is Shane. Shane stayed with me for a year when he was 13-ish, after his father died and his mom, a good friend, fell apart. Shane had gone through so much in his young life’ including the death of a sister who was only a year younger. Shane was 22 when he murdered the father of his ex-girlfriend. He also shot her mother, but she survived. He kidnapped her, high speed chase, and now he is doing LWOP +10. In hindsight, it was predictable, but I cannot help feeling I failed the guy and contributed to the crime by not being there when he was going through the trauma that turned into his crime. Had his trauma been addressed, he could have been a wonderful, contributing member of society. I thought he would grow up to be in the Forestry Service or the National Parks Services - he was a good outdoorsman. Or as a teacher at the elementary school level as he was really good with kids - making the feel included, making the feel as if learning was fun, stopping nonsense - hell, he was teaching kids karate in his club when he was 13, and the kids all really responded to him. Instead, he is locked up tight for the rest of his life, lucky to escape the death penalty. Sigh.

Anyway, those are the crimes that shocked me the most.

Well, those, and 9-11. The world came to a standstill in shock and disbelief with that one.

I hate to say it but my girls "crime" story is the most shocking to me. It is a series of events perpetrated by gas-lighting and pressure and a divorce and a cop ex husband as the ring leader. I see the same elements of every single thing that happened in any and every divorce I witnessed even my own, but the difference here is this guy used the law to execute their revenge on her.

To me its so static and black and white with someone that does some heinous crime. It doesn't "shock" me, I mean some things people do are amazingly disgusting, but the real shocker is to see the law twisted in favor of evil people and witness "professionals" lie on stands all to collaborate against someone harmless for the simple fact they are belong to a fraternity. That seriously shocks me. It was like being in a nightmare dream state witnessing the travesty before my eyes.

Aileen Wuornos. Ever since I saw videos on YouTube, her documentaries capture my attention.
