See story here.

Shortly before Thanksgiving Day, in nearby Wake County, NC, a man who robbed a store, then beat up a woman to take her car for a get-away, got clobbered by a big frozen turkey.
See story here.

And on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving Day, early holiday shopping proves to be downright dangerous!
See story here.

The good news is that two dangerous killers are safely locked away, who have taken the lives of women who were loved by many, giving new hope for families and friends of murder victims everywhere.

Happy Holidays!

PS - Last year on this night, my friends and I gathered for a candlelight vigil in honor of the 10-year anniversary of Debbie Key. It was a night I will always remember. To see pictures of this event, scroll down to the bottom of this page.

Cary 6-year-old Awarded

A 6-year-old Cary girl received the town's first "I Knew What to Do Award" for calling 911 in an emergency, staying calm, and giving the correct information they needed to respond.
I'm sure there are more than a few adults who would do well to follow her example.
You gotta see this!

Second Football Player Dies

For the second time this year, a football player for the Chapel Hill High School Tigers died. This occurred early Sunday morning, Nov. 16, about 4:AM.

Rodney Torain, 17, who played defensive tackle, was being taken home by his friends, Ashley Bynum, 18, who was driving the car, and Laticia Farrington, 17.
A car behind them was following too closely, then made an illegal pass, side-swiping the teen's car and running them off the road. The driver over compensated and ran off the other side of the road, hitting a tree.

Rodney Torain died of head injury. He was not wearing a seat belt.
The other two teens suffered minor injuries. They were wearing seat belts. This occurred near the intersecion of Old Greensboro Rd and Neville Rd.

Police are looking for a gold or silver colored 4-door sedan with side-swipe damage on the passenger side. It was occupied by several men at the time of the hit-and-run.

Rodney Torain and Atlas Fraley were close friends. Fraley was a CHHS football player who died in August.

Jennifer Rivkin

Another person missing from Gaston County, NC this year is 42 year old Jennifer Ramsey Rivkin.
Jennifer went missing on May 4, 2008, the day before Ira Yarmolenko was found murdered in the same county, in Mt. Holly, NC on May 5.

Her borrowed car, a BMW, was found 2 days later in the parking lot of the Winner's Circle Bar & Grill, on W.Franklin Blvd. in Gastonia, NC. The car was found locked with her purse inside, but the sun roof was left open and it had rained.

People at the Winner's Circle, including the owner, do not believe Jennifer Rivkin was a patron of the establishment, but just that the parking lot was chosen as a place to leave the car. It was in the back of the lot behind a building.

Jennifer is 5'5", 130 lbs., with brown hair and hazel eyes.
She is from nearby Kings Mountain, NC.
A reward of $5000 is offered for useful information.

Just about a month earlier, on April 8, 2008, is when Jamie Fraley went missing, also from Gastonia, NC.

Could the missing persons cases of Jennifer Rivkin and Jamie Fraley, and the murder case of Ira Yarmolenko, be connected? There are those who think so.

Gaston County Police are not talking much about these cases, but Ira's brother, Pavel Yarmolenko, is. I have found discussions going on in

Texas EqquuSearch, who have been searching for Caylee Anthony in Florida, are coming to NC to search for Jennifer and Jamie.
You can check out their story here.

Theresa Allore - 30 years

Today is the 30-year anniversary of the death of Theresa Allore.
Theresa was a spunky and lovable teenager who loved David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Archie comics.
When she went missing from her school on November 3, 1978, neither the school, nor the police, thought there was any need to look for her.
Murder was so uncommon in that part of Canada at that time, that even after Theresa's body was found, they still didn't think that's what happened to her.

John Allore is a man who has worked very hard since then to find out what really happened to his older sister, and now lives in Chapel Hill, NC. By a strange twist of fate, John and his family bought the house that Debbie Key's suspected killer once lived in. His story has brought us together.

Today I wish to honor the memory of Theresa Allore.
The blogging team of "Who Killed Theresa?" has been very kind and supportive of my efforts to put this website together. Without such encouragement, I might have given up.

I ask my readers to visit WKT?, and to check out the videos about Theresa on YouTube today. Let us remember this person who has brought us together in this unusual, but very meaningful way.
I suggest you start here:

To everyone at WKT?, I thank you for your support, and I value the friendships we have made.
Wishing you peace and many blessings;
The Wildman
