"Missing trio"

In the preface to This Night Wounds Time, I write, "The equation is a simple one: solved mysteries are revisited by the media ad nauseam while cold cases - the ones truly needing exposure - languish."

Therefore, doing my part to promote other cold cases, I'd like to draw everyone's attention to the case of Julie Ann Moseley, Rachel Trlica, and Lisa Renee Wilson, three Fort Worth teenagers who disappeared on December 23, 1974. This case, like that of Stacie Madison and Susan Smalley, has never been solved.

Please see for more information.

Webbs Chapel Village (Webbs Chapel Road and Forest Lane)

It was at this locale, Webbs Chapel Village (Forest Lane and Webbs Chapel Road) that Stacie Madison's Ford Mustang was located.

Again, these photos are posted for the benefit of those wishing to see higher resolution versions of the photos featured in the book.

Stacie Madison's 1967 Ford Mustang

Steak and Ale, Addison, Texas

Some have asked if it's possible to see better quality/higher resolution images of the landmarks shown in the book.

Here is a photograph of the former Steak and Ale at Belt Line Road and Sakowitz Drive, where Stacie Madison and Susan Smalley were last seen in the early morning hours of March 20, 1988.

Please note that this building still exists in 2010 but, since the corporate entity filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 in 2008, it is no longer a Steak and Ale.

Since the release of This Night Wounds Time in November 2009, several people have raised the question of whether or not psychics were consulted in regard to the disappearances of Stacie Madison and Susan Smalley.

I do not mention psychics in my book, but the answer to this question is yes.

This truth is found in the August 19, 2001 edition of The Dallas Morning News in which, in the article entitled "Vanished Without a Trace: 13 Years After Teens Disappeared, Families Still Wait, Wonder," author Michael Granberry writes, "With nothing else to go on, Carrollton police listened intently to several psychics..."

I'm told that the services of these individuals in 1988 proved to be a waste of time and resources. Therefore, to those persons intent on raising this possibility in 2010, I offer that it is a very safe bet that this is an avenue the Carrollton Police Department is not interested in exploring again.
