Police organizations looked for Chiro with no results. Then on January, sixteenth, two, thousand and six by accident, motorists stuck in the mud, notice something strange in a drainage ditch along railroad tracks are Boga. Roden Oliver I. Sadly. It was the body of Charro Bay. She was wrapped in a black tarp and it appears her killer attempted to way down with large pieces of cement. Decomposition in recent rain caused her body to rise making it visible. An autopsy determined. Cause of death was blunt force trauma by an unknown object. that was blunt force trauma to her head. Some point after this an investigator from the Department of Justice was brought in to to assist in the investigation Shiraz murder shocked her family, the community and police alike. She did not have any enemies. She wasn't mixed up with the wrong crowd. She was just a beautiful young woman, starting her life. She was so loved in fact, her funeral was held at Saint. Joseph's the very church. Her families were members of. And over two hundred people were in attendance, many spilling out onto the sidewalk. Actually, my mom went to her funeral service. Cairo had had started working at the of the program headstart where my mom worked. She was an aide there. And they didn't know each other personally. My mom didn't know her personally, but they. You know passing in the hallway working in the same program. On your mom was just touched by the whole situation, it devastated the community devastated. I. Remember my I didn't live there at the time. Anymore had moved away for for a little bit I remember my mom talking about Cairo while she was missing and then just being devastated that she was found murdered devastated it. You're always hoping when somebody's just missing that. That's not what's. The situation as yeah, it rocked Oliver's small town of all it was it was. Very Sad, it is very sad. All of the communities in this area are very small. They are there are a bunch of small towns and Uber setters made up of a few small towns. In two and six governor, Schwarzenegger, or as we like to call him. The governator offered a twenty five thousand dollar reward. For the arrest and conviction of her killer, hoping that would drum up some lead swell. With billboards newspaper articles? Nothing brought any new leads. We're not that far from Sacramento, so I guess he probably just saw it in the local. Yeah News. Yeah. I thought that was pretty another reason. The governator is pretty cool yeah yeah. All right so here's some of the facts. 'cause there's not very many, so here's some of the facts that I got from the newspaper. Detectives determined that she was quote confronted. At about five twenty five am. I don't know how they determine that how they knew that what evidence led them to believe that and I don't know what they meant by quote confronted. I don't know if she was confronted in her home there no sign. That is the point where she was met with her abductor. Yes, basically, yes, and the autopsy also determined that she was most likely killed right at the conference confrontation or soon after So her body was found less than a mile from her house. So there is no evidence found inside the residence. None that the police are releasing. This is just it's very strange. It's bizarre somebody either had to be sitting there waiting for her family to leave or she stepped outside for something to grab something from her car. Or what have you and then somebody saw her? Yeah, so I talked Veronica in in a little bit at length. Length she didn't know Chai row personally like I said, but she said you know she was just one of those people that drew others near her. You just wanted to be around her. She said just as a rental customer. I remembered her. Yeah, and you know. She said there could have been, and this is her own theory GBS not long for Mitt. She's not a detective. I'm not either, but she said you know maybe somebody just. Grew and infatuation with her. From renting movies. she ran into pretty much the whole town there. Yeah, you know yeah so. I we did the case on the Yuba county five and so heartbreaking yet the Sacramento Bee did in my opinion, a A great two-part article on that case and I'm hoping this year would be the twentieth anniversary. of her murder and I'm hoping that the local newspaper will do a piece may be. You know see if the sheriff's office will release any more information to kind of breathe new life into the case you know we all know we all watch the same shows. We all listen to the same podcast. If you're into crime, you know that detectives hold some information private. Yeah, so I'm thinking that they have a lot of. Information that they haven't released. So you know. Maybe it's been twenty years maybe. The they'll come a point where they can release them to the public, and it will spark some leads spark. Some calls spark some interest in the case again. You know because I guarantee you. Her family and the community think about her every day. Oh I guarantee it, so it's it's. It was just these cases. That's why it's so important to talk about these cases, even if it's just on a little pod like ours. Yeah, just so that they don't get forgotten I agree. I agree I just wanted to end on a quote from Chiara's best friend. She gave a quote on When at one of the memorial services now they've had annual memorial services. Yuba county victim witness is in my opinion I used to work in the school district in the county. And you know you're mandated reporter, so you sometimes work with victim witness, and they are a county government agency and they. have social workers, therapists and advocates for victims and victims families of crimes. And in my opinion. I am so thankful that not only Chiara's family, but other families that have experienced traumatic. Murders in their family and traumatic violence in their family. They have victim witness to their advocates that go to the house. They talked to the family. They sit with family, offer, counseling and PTSD services for the family they. If there is a case where the it goes to trial, they go with family members to trial. They're basically like an emotional support system for families of victims so incredible it is so incredible it's so incredible I know somebody personally who has had who has dealt with victim witness, and they are in valuable to this community and H. I just wanted to give them a shout out because they are wonderful. So I wanted to end this episode with like I said. A quote from her best friend that was taken from the. From the appeal. Democrat at a memorial.

Tell us about your first experience with this. Damn down a few different times over my life had been here my whole life. It was built and commissioned in nineteen forty seven by the Army Corps of Engineers so that people could resume hydraulic mining blocks hundreds of miles of potential fish passage for fish. Come from the ocean and go up into the high sierra to lay their eggs so when I first came to the damn understanding that the state of California had targeted this spot em federal government as maybe the best place to restore passage at the very first meeting we went to the. Us Geological Survey stood up and said you can't do anything to that. Damn until you look at the material behind it is holding back a whole bunch of mercury and that was the very first time I had ever heard anything about mercury and the state of California and its role in the goal rush. Or how long have you lived in this part of the world? My family came to California as part of the Gold Rush. We were quakers. Escaping the east coast. Ten violent religious oppression moved out to become farmers I was raised in Concord California on that form and in one thousand nine hundred five. I married a farmer and we moved to Nevada county beautiful organic farm in a place called Penn Valley. Tell us about this county and just its history and the gold rush because it is a lot of history here. Nevada county was ground zero of the California Gold Rush. Far More gold was taken out of this county and specifically this river that we're standing above than any other place in the state of California. It's where the very destructive technique called hydraulic mining which is using power water monitors to to scrub mountainside. Looking for gold is where that was invented. They started to dam the rivers and convey that water over to these huge hydraulic mining activities. Which were recovering thousands of of gold but millions of tons of sediment not material here from Nevada county rolled down the river and kept flooding the Sacramento Valley and eventually the farmers downstream who are really tired of having their houses filled with all this debris sued and stopped the activity known as hydraulic mining. Was the connection between Mercury and gold. Tell us how that process works. Everybody came to understand that the very dramatic impact of hydraulic mining because it was blowing these huge amounts of sediment down the river. But people didn't understand. Was that before they use. Those hydraulic monitors. They would treat the cliffs with Mercury Mercury on the cliff. Pound the cliffs with water the water to wash down into sluices and in those sluice boxes were also filled with mercury. Why did they use mercury keep? Mercury helped enhance called processing. It has a unique ability to amalgamate or hold the gold. So little tiny flecks of gold. That might be smaller than an eyelash would fall into the pan. But they're just wash out unless they were captured by mercury. Mercury would grab the gold. Make it heavy fall to the bottom of the sluice. When they turn the water off. Miners would come through and suck that mercury out of the bottom of the sluice they would take the mercury put it in a hot place they would call retort it like think of a hot iron frying pan and the mercury sort of melting off the top or or training into gas off the top and at the bottom of your pan. You'd have sparkling gold. The problem is curious. Mercury is a very dangerous neuro toxin. And it's dangerous in a variety of ways so badly that the United Nations World Health Organization Amnesty of California have both named it. The top bioaccumulative toxic material of concern. Mercury is a neuro toxin. It affects the developmental human being so our ability to deform our nerves are heart or lungs. Our brains it creates Serious birth defects and people have focused on that for many many years but as research has been done we learn that it continues to damage us as adults. It seems to be causing problems with our hearts with our lungs and with our various different organs which accumulate mercury. So it's a known neuro toxin and that's strike one against it strike to is it bioaccumulates in our body. It doesn't really easily leave our bodies many of the things we take in. Let's take alcohol. You drink it and two days later. It's all out of your body not so with Mercury it stores itself in your body and builds up over time strike. Three is that this material does. What's called bio magnifies in the environment? So the most dangerous place for a piece of mercury to be is in water particularly in warm water. Mercury is taken up by the little bugs at the bottom of the food chain. They eat a little bit of it. It transfers up to the bigger bugs and then the bigger bugs and then the fish and then the humans or as we watch here today. The waterbirds that are flying around might pick up. Officiant eat it. They are eating a highly toxic potent load of mercury so much so that the lake. We're looking here like Anglo. Bright has fish advisories on it that advice that a woman of childbearing age eat not a single bass out of this lake fish mornings. I run along this Anchorman River. There will along the Sacramento. And then you go down to San Francisco Bay. The same warnings that so it's in fact the entire ecosystem. The mercury that is in the Delta is entirely from these legacy minds in the areas. We are the gold mines and sadly for California. We had a unique geology which led us have mercury in our state as well. The coastal range has the mercury minds. Whether it's the ones down in San Jose or the ones Tamales Bay or up over on the clear lake there are serious old legacy mercury minds which are contaminating the coastal range and the tributaries that drain from there into the bay or into the ocean where we are everywhere. There was gold mining. They use this mercury not only for the the hydraulic mining but also for the hard rock mines which dominated the landscapes for one hundred years and all of those continue to leak mercury into the state of California water bodies every time it rains
"Since one thousand nine hundred sixty. California has officially been known as the Golden State. And that's because as the plaque reads California's development and remarkable prosperity began with the discovery of gold humanities. Love of gold is fairly bizarre of all the hundred and eighteen elements in the periodic table. Gold is the only one which we humans have always gravitated towards gold was used earliest currencies. Gold joined us in marriage and was used to produce most precious artifacts. Maybe the secret to our love of gold is simply that it's beautiful and never tarnishes in eighteen. Fifty-three my father's great grandfather Henry. Cohn traveled from a tiny stelle. In what is now Poland to Hamburg where he boarded a boat and six months later. After walking across the isthmus of Panama Henry ended up in San Francisco. Henry Cohn was part of the Goldrush the largest mass migration in American history bringing about three hundred thousand people to California. It all started in eighteen. Forty eight when James Marshall found gold in his piece of land at Sada's mill in Coloma. The News of gold quickly spread around the world. At first the gold could be picked up from the ground but later on it was recovered from the streams and rivers with the use of panned. The gold rush peaked in eighteen fifty. Two and after that the Gold Rassoul getting thinner and harder to reach soon largescale and more environmentally damaging methods of traction cold hydraulic mining were employed. One hundred and seventy years later on the environmental legacy of the gold rush a significant and yet acknowledged as we'll discover in today's episode mercury which is a deadly neurotoxin was elemental to the process of gold-mining today large quantities of mercury from the gold. Russia's still polluting California posing a risk to every kind of living organism including us. I travel up to California's gold country to meet with Izzy Mountain. Izzy is a community organizer and environmental advocate with over forty years of experience working in rural communities to economic and environmental justice.

"Attack that sucks. Yeah so he recovered. He's fine eventually his car Atta gas so he slept the night in the car survived. Got Out the next morning and went to walk back eight miles down the hill to the lodge you staying at and a hundred and fifty feet away. He found their car in the middle of the road. Empty gone creepy so he was a hundred and fifty feet away from these mass so he was actually close so he could have seen that. It's not out of the question but we just don't know we just don't know okay so nothing came from this guy's tip that couldn't they. They investigated him but didn't find any foul play. It just heartbreaking. That he was a hundred and fifty feet away. Could he have been any help? He was in the middle of a heart attack. Maybe not but if they would have all stayed together till the next morning yes so more than three months went by and no sign of the men. It's as if they walked into a snowy night and vanished into thin air on June fourth of the same year after the snow melted a group of bikers. Were taken a ride in the plumas national forest when they came upon an abandoned for a service outpost as they pulled up. They noticed that a window had been broken out and they were suddenly overtaken by the strong smell of death and the call. The police tree crews spent half a day clearing trees from the road just to get to the abandoned trailer. Once they entered they found empty cans of food. Wood furniture extra clothing. Books and Ted Weirs Body. Candles had been recently lit and thirty one cans of food were found open and Eaton. They actually were opened with an army. P thirty eight can opener which needs a certain expertise to use expertise only Gary Matthias and Jack macdougall. Who were both in the army would have had? Ted's leather shoes were missing and Gerry's tennis shoes were found inside the trailer Mrs heartbreaking. It is because Jerry's tennis shoes were found inside the trailer that led investigators to believe that Gary was inside the trailer long enough to switch shoes. So Ted was the only one found at this point. He was the only one in the trailer and he was found laying on a bed covered under eight sheets with his arms on his chest. Eight sheets he had. He was covered with eight sheets covered up with eight sheets. He had his pants pulled up to his knees. His ring inscribed with Ted was on the nightstand also along with his wallet and also a gold. Watch that none of the parents recognized now. They did a analysis of Ted's beard hair and they found that the growth he had been there for at least six weeks in that trailer like his. He had been alive at least for six weeks after they went missing. Because that's how long has beard had grown? They also noticed that he had lost a considerable amount of weight. He was at least two hundred pounds when he went missing he had lost eighty two hundred pounds. Oh my God And he had. They found that he had died. From basically exposure he had blood poisoning from Frostbite which led to gangrene which lead to lead poisoning and he lost five toes at that point when God yeah terrible. Terrible terrible way to die. So let's talk about this trailer and this forced outpost for a little bit okay because I do think it's important now at this outpost. They found that Ted had died from exposure and he had covered up with eight sheets but there was plenty of material to burn in that trailer to start a fire and they. They found no evidence at any point. Had He tried to start a fire for warmth. Also there was never a fire set at all in in the trailer. For there was books there was paper. There was clothing there was would there was stuff was there. Fire starter material. Was there a lighter or matches? I believe so. It didn't say specifically but it was a fully stocked trailer. Also there was a propane tank that could have been hooked up to a heater to the trailer. That was never hooked up. Now you have to consider who these men were. Who had was it. It said that Ted didn't have common sense and also setting up a propane tank and doing all of that was probably just out of his scope. Yeah Frantic he was clarified. He was sick. He probably wouldn't even considered setting up a propane tank. I can't really blame them for that. I would. I consider setting up a private. We wouldn't either. I'm not sure I probably wouldn't either. I'd probably just try to start a fire. Yeah so now also. There was two containers at this outpost. One of the containers had been broken into which contain the canned food that they found in the trailer He had gone through the canned food. The sadly the container next to it wasn't opened it wasn't broken into it contained enough food to sustain all five men for at least a year. That's awful so there's a lot of speculation about you know whether they had the common sense or awareness to hook up the propane tank About the food. They're family sad that they were the type of men who wouldn't willingly touch something that didn't belong to them so there is a kind of a speculation saying that. Okay maybe they just felt that they were breaking and entering and it was you know it was really black and white like those were against the rules. Breaking into someone's belong as against the rules. We're not GONNA do that. Maybe they were delirious and just missed it maybe. They thought that they checked everywhere and MR SPA and didn't see the food. Maybe they didn't realize what the food was because by then they were so exhausted and hungry and cold and sick that they didn't realize what they were looking at. Yeah I tend to think that maybe they just you know tough. Conditions it snowy. You're starving you hire scared you're you have frostbite. Yeah you know it's would. I have the awareness to break into everything. I'm not sure I don't know I don't know either. It's easy to say like white and they do this or I would have done that. But until you're in that situation and you're suffering in these ways and you're going through these extreme circumstances you really don't know absolutely. I think you know even being on the I'm not in the position to diagnose anyone by any means I just have a hunch because I have a brother WHO's autistic. He's on the spectrum. He's very high functioning and his just seeming like a lot of these men might have been on the spectrum and just had not been diagnosed yet. Or you know maybe thirty years later. They would bank diagnosed or today say they would've been diagnosed on the spectrum. But you know I'm thinking at some point I think with survival kick in like the will to live with it kick in. I don't know I quit for me. I don't even know so. I think putting their diagnosis or their mental disabilities aside. I don't think anybody would know what to do in that situation until they're in that situation exactly and maybe you hire a great point. Maybe there was no access to a fire starter. Yeah they didn't. Hook up the propane so they didn't have. I don't even know if I would honestly trust myself to hook up or painting to a trailer. I can barely trust myself to hook up a propane tank to a fucking Barbara. Yeah I know and half the time like I gonNA blow up right now. I mean blow knew about. I know it sounds ridiculous but in if you're already terrified you don't WanNa add any sort of unknown element to your situation. Exactly like people will always choose the double that they know exactly exactly and I'm thinking might have literally half of my toes or frozen off. Am I going to outside again? Yeah fuck no no so jack. Muga and Bill Stirling were found two days later eight miles closer to the car my God. Oh so and by the way this trailer camp. This Forest Service camp was nearly twenty miles from their car. It was nineteen point six miles from their car so they had walked. At least Ted had walked nineteen point six miles from their car to this outpost which had to take days. Yeah there's no there's no way that was a straight line either no Jack Maduga and bill stirling found two days later eight miles closer to the car. On opposite sides of the road nothing but scattered bones were left of bill and Jack Madrid goes body was dragged to a nearby stream by animals. His car keys were still in his pants. Pocket it was determined hypothermia slash exposure was caused was the cause of death for Jack. Maju got bill sterling's death couldn't be determined because of the state up his remains. So what I WANNA know is did they all make it to the trailer and then Jack and bill decided to walk back to the car because Jack was the only one who could drive out of well one of the only ones who could drive out of the groups. Oh did they all make it to the trailer in Ted said? I'm good here. You go back to the car and then they just never made it back to the car or did they stop on the way to the trailer and we'll never know there was no other evidence in except for the one shoes. Yeah so Jack Hewitt. Other boy that they The other man. Excuse me that they hadn't found yet. They were still. The search party was still on because at this point. They're looking for Jack Hewitt and Gary Mathias Jack. Hewitt's father was warned not to help investigators on the rescue mission but on June eighth. He saw what he thought. Appear to be Jack's jacket near the trailer. When he went to pick up the jacket Jack Spine fell out. Oh my God Jack was awful. It terrible terrible Jack Hewitt was later identified by his skull and teeth found about fifty feet near his jacket in spine so by June eighth. Four of the five men had been found. I just can't imagine what these families and these parents were going through. This is the worst case scenario. It is a worst case as a parent. I just I empathize with them so deeply. This is just tragic. It is horrible it is horrible. Gary Matthias is still missing to this day. They never found his body. They never found him alive. They never found his remains nothing. It isn't known why they drove there where they were going or what they were doing to this day. So obviously we have one man. S not found. And that is Gary. And we'RE GONNA look into Gary a little bit because some of the theories of why this happened have to deal with Gerry. Matthias and these are just theories are just theories. These are just theories now the Article a lot about Gary was in the article which I'm assuming got from the evidence and it suggests my assumption only because the article was I. I'd say the prevailing theory was that Gary Matthias had something to do with this because he was a little bit different than the other men. So the four men. Bill Jack Hewitt Jack.

It is a weird case this week. It's weird it's bizarre. You know I have a thing for missing persons. I find them so fascinating. Just because it's like where the fuck did they go and it's local. It is local that is true it is a local case. So I'm going to start off with my sources Journalists Benji a goal from the Sacramento. Bee did a wonderful two part article By the name of out in the cold for mentally disabled man died in the woods. But what happened to the fifth so I use that for my main source and then wikipedia just like we normally do check the time line and other bits. That may be the article. Didn't cover like I said this is a is a weird case and not a lot of people know about it even an I. I don't really know why we can talk about that at the end. But with this case even when you think you get answers you'll only be left with more questions. It still considered unsolved and remains open to this day. The current Yuba County Sheriff's department. Let Benji Eagle from the sack. Be Look at all the evidence as long as he didn't take any or take pictures so the main source from this article that he wrote the two part series in this act be was based on the evidence that is still with the Yuba County Sheriff's department. That's amazing that he had access to that. Yeah so I'm actually. This was a a wonderful article. Obviously I didn't cover everything. I suggest reading it if you're interested in this case because it it's a it's a wonderfully written article and I'm GonNa Start with his opening to that article. I'm GonNa read his opening because it's just so good. A Northern California drought broke hard in February. Nineteen seventy eight blanketing rural areas of the state in sheets of snow as if Yuba County residents needed another reason to stay inside radios and TV's were spewing real life crime drama. I with filmmaker Roman Polanski's escaped to France in the face of an impending statutory rape sentencing. Then when a murder suspect that went by the name of Ted Bundy was arrested in Florida after twice escaping from Colorado authorities and by the end of the month the grisly story dominating the Airways was one from their own backyard. I don't know if you've heard ten buddy. Nope never heard of him or Roman Polanski. Okay so exactly. Forty two years ago almost to the day yesterday yesterday it was to the day but today's not yesterday so almost to the day we've done that twice in a row now and it's so crazy wild in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. A mysterious disappearance of five men rock the small town of Marysville California which is located just forty miles north of Sacramento. The town the police and their families referred to the five men who ranged from early twenties to early thirties. As the boys the five men were all developmentally delayed or mentally handicapped in some ways so during this episode all refer to them sometimes as the boys and sometimes as the men they were technically in age men but maybe mentally by their friends and family were considered the boys just because they were developmentally delayed in some way one way or another. That's also kind of a term of endearment. Yeah it is I felt like it was. It was term of endearment children. It wasn't a the boys and a belittling way was like the good old boy. The boys the boys met through Gateway Project an organization for adults with special needs. They became fast friends. And we're inseparable most of the time. Here's a quote from Jack. Beecham the under sheriff in Nineteen. Seventy eight. They were kind of described as studs of their community. You know the special needs folks. They were athletic very well liked and very well respected. They were nice kids. Nice people so I'm going to get into a little bit about who the boys were and their background. So we'll start off with Ted. We're WHO's thirty two? He loved making friends. He was very social and according to his but according to his family he lacked basic common sense so for example one time he spent one hundred dollars on pencils for no apparent reason. He just bought one hundred dollars. Worth of pencils probably really cool pencils is defense. I mean I think they must've been you remember those holographic ones with Indiana racer about. That's what I think they were. He would question simple instructions like stopping at a stop sign or one time. His parents house caught on fire when they were all sleeping. And as the roof burn above him Ted late in bed watching the flames and when his brother Dallas went into try to get him out of bed. He said leave me alone. I have to rest for work tomorrow. Not really aware as angel. Yeah that was GONNA burn his house down and him. Dallas ended up dragging him from the house And he was okay they were all okay but he would also do things like wake up in the middle of the night and wake up his brother and ask things like why can mickey mantle hit a ball farther than me and one thing about each of these men Is there was not an official diagnosis in the news report? So I I don't know it was but for the time of like the blanket. Diagnosis of just like slow. A lot of few of these boys sound like they're on the autistic spectrum before autism was a diagnosed thing So this is back in the seventies. So maybe I don't think really autism was a diagnosis then. Probably not. And that brings us to Jack Hewitt Twenty Four. He was the most severely handicapped out of the group. His father said he couldn't read he couldn't right and he relied heavily on his mother and his best friend. Ted for help. He didn't like to be away from home. For extended periods of time especially not overnight actually had a heavy speech impediment and didn't really like to be without his mom and next we have bill stirling twenty nine he used to be a dishwasher at Beale Air Force Base but. His mother made him quit once she found out that the airmen were routinely getting him drunk so they could steal his money. Rude very rude. Just get drunk. You don't need to still money Dr Nice. Yeah just junk. Exactly so bill. His family had a cabin at Bucks Lake in the Plumas National Forest and he would go there fishing with his family And they would you know take annual trips there but after a while. He didn't like the forest he didn't like being out in the Wilderness. He didn't like fishing really so he started to stay home after they when they would go on their annual trips just because he didn't really let camping or staying at the cabin so the night he banished. He had fifteen dollars allowance. A map of California a map of Sacramento a map of Stockton and a map of San Francisco on his percent. Well prepared Yes for anything really and it sounds crazy to say that now but back then. If you didn't know where you're going you had a map. Yeah maybe he just liked to hit. It was his way of controlling. His environment is to keep maps on his person just in K. just in case but you would definitely need them for directions. You couldn't just look it up while you were driving cap google. Yeah whereas I don't know where is the Plumas National Forest and that brings us to Jack? Madridl thirty he worked as a dishwasher at sense wheat growers a local dried fruit company. And I'M ANA use direct quotes from the article. That family members told police quote not mentally retarded in the common sense of retardation merely slow in his thought process and quote. Obviously that we don't use those words anymore..

"Which makes sense to me. Yeah going but anyway. That doesn't mean there's anything nefarious that's GonNa you know. I mean you don't need them anymore. Anyway he was gone. Just gone no tracks do no signs of him anywhere. They never found his body or any pieces of him or anything like that. That's right and and We're we've been talking about the Sacramento Bee article. It's actually a two part article. Here's an excerpt specifically about these files clips and interviews shape a disturbing image of Matthias Build. Virtually all media reports at the time is another lost. Lamb caught out in the cold but was aberration within the flock. A young man who do not belong with the others. It was violently schizophrenic. And had a history of drug use and wasn't intellectually disabled like the others was Gary Matthias responsible for his friend's deaths that I put that paragraph in there. Because that kind of sums up one of the theories right right He he was the wildcard. Maybe he'd lead them there to do all of this. Yeah so some things about Gary that we do now Unlike the others you said he didn't grow up diagnosed with a disability. According to his appearance is first placed psychiatric Gordon. High school after a bad acid trip So that's crazy. I must be a really bad acid trip. His his first diagnosis actually came when he was discharged from the army for paranoid schizophrenia. That's where that's where that diagnosis was. According to the sheriff's files. He was in Germany and he was doing tons and tons of drugs they said. Yeah one of Benny's I saw on the barbituates. Yeah all the drugs from the seventies that are like where would I even get that? GotTa Lewd Man Exact yet multiple run. Ins with the law including an arrest for groping his cousin sleeping wife punching a cop wile in prison and breaking into the House of a couple. He knew in telling their three-year-old daughter quote. I thought I'd kill you once. I guess I'll have to do it again in quote see some guys just know how to party. Oh God I'm literally GonNa open the garage door and kick him out so all of this is all those run INS with. The law were happening while he was using a bunch of drugs as we mentioned And and and a bunch of other crime and drug related stuff happened in his history. But let's just say that there was a good run there where he wasn't on the right path. I think that's the best way to say. There is a however to that though. Yeah how he got he got straight. Yeah they say he didn't. He been on the straight narrow. He started consistently taking his meds and he joined like we said that the gateway projects where he met the boys a few months before all this happened. And here's another quote from that same article from the Sacramento Bee following a nineteen seventy interview with Matthias his longtime acquaintance Jenin. Zahra you be county sergeant. James Black wrote Matthias had repeatedly told Zahra of a dream where he and several other people would disappear in Zurich called Matthias a very violent hurting several men seriously and said that he also hates women according to the interview notes with her now. That's a stark difference from what his parents will tell you. Which is he's on the straight and narrow and he had been two years of zero run INS with the law or anything like that so we know what the cops think. Here's another quote. This is also Jack Beecham that former Yuba County sheriff saying the following. They were either forced or manipulated. And where does Matthias come into that? Maybe had nothing to do with it. We'll never know but I think he did right right now. That said it's completely conjecture to tie the incident to some horrible plan that that Gary had come up with but it's also possible that he was just lost with the rest of them got bad luck. He went on his own fell. Died got eaten got. Yeah it really was the lost lamb along with the other four loss lamps. Yeah it's also possible. He convinced the Fellas to go on an adventure truly. He felt like he was an adventure because he hadn't taken his meds and he accidentally lead them to their deaths. Adventure for me is sitting on her side of the couch. You know a little bit different. Yeah or maybe Maybe just maybe regardless of the circumstances or intention. He's still alive today. That's fucked up if he is if he is if he is a paranoid schizophrenic e could also maybe he wandered off somewhere. He's in a psych ward as a John DOE somewhere and they've just never put tuned together. You think they would run fingerprints and stuff like that. But that's something that he yeah. His fingerprints would certainly be in the system. Yeah you'd think so but the idea. I suppose. The point remains that we don't know what happened. I never thought they would actually follow no especially in that snow. It's not even funny. I don't even understand that. All Right Brent. John figured out. No I don't I I. It's always easy to point. Blame IT SOMEONE. But that is just what they're doing. They're they don't know until something comes of this. I hate to sully him just because he was with them. It seems the cops have to do that right. But we don't know well. It's just like like in court. They always talk about circumstantial evidence. Yeah you're right. And it's all circumstantial but that's sometimes all you have if you don't have a smoking gun to me. I don't think I'd lean towards the side of another party being involved some extraneous party Forcing them this way or that I I lean to either five kids made. The wrong decision went the wrong direction. And when you combine that with their issues that they they suffered from one way or another right what whatever. They were diagnosed or not diagnosed with when you combine those two factors. They just they made a bunch of Poor choices accidentally and wound up paying the price with their life for what we don't know or or or the other being that Matthias was involved. I I fall in one of those two. I don't fall into the camp of an extremist third party kind of puppet puppet master in all of this. But we want to know what you guys think. How can they tell us John? King go to hysteria nation. It is our facebook.

"The call was perfect. I really need to get better. My impressions as we mentioned all five of them played on a basketball team together and there was a tournament coming The the following Saturday. Yeah the family said they were all really pumped about it because the winner of the attorney would win a week in La and a trip to Disneyland. It is overrated. Probably but you know I also read somewhere else that at the tournament I think it was at the terror might have been the the game. They're going to the night before which we'll get into. They were going to have the opportunity to meet Sally struthers. Oh Shit correspondence schools for everyone. So before the tournament they made plans to go to a basketball game that Friday night. What's GonNa make sense? You GotTa be tournament. The next day goes go. Watch a game kind of pumped up and get ready for it. So that's back on Friday February twenty fourth. They all got into the car. Now Jack Modrica. He owned the car and it was a nineteen sixty nine Mercury Montego. Any drove about fifty miles with him to watch the game at California State University Chico and their favorite team which was another California team. I'm forgetting Was Actually on the road plane at Chico. That's why they went so far in In other in another source I was reading. Most of their parents actually asked them not to go because that was a really long way they got a big day. Tomorrow you're not going to get home until late. Like why? Why are you right now? And they were super excited about the big day. It just didn't make sense but they they had made their minds up so they win. Yes they get back in the car at about ten o'clock ish to head home after the game right. Yeah and they stopped three blocks away from the university where they played at where the game was played at at a place called bears market and they bought some snacks and this is remember the clerk. I always find this interesting most things you don't remember but when something what'd you do last. Tuesday says the after. I don't know but if that day something happened stepped attack right. You would like well. He was on my way to the bathroom so the guy was trying to close up and they came in and he said annoyed the piss out of him because he's trying to get out of there and they're like come in like just hadn't had a they'd had a lot of fun at the game so probably fired up gentleman's flowing exactly. Yeah so they bought and they they have exactly what about down one hostess. Cherry Pie one Lincoln dorf lemon Pie one snickers bar one marathon bar to Pepsi's and a court and a half of milk not so cold milk was a bad choice. I had to say gold glass still doing your own podcast there. What the Hell is a marathon bar? I'm glad you asked to see I have a treat for you. This is going to be a little aside from the show. Today I'm going to be my back radyr battlements. Yeah no kidding. We are going to try marathon wealth not exactly. I'm explain. Bela happier. Max I know you would The Mars Candy Company introduced the Marathon Bar in nineteen seventy three and was a full full eight inches of braided caramel covered in milk chocolate. Maybe that's only that's that's way longer than eight inches it was it was marketed as quote the candy bar. You can't eat quickly in commercials and Oh God oh man. It's going to be like milk or sugar. Babies or something it and their mascot was like some sort of cowboy dude anyway. Quick a came in a is that what happened. It came in a bright red rapper. That made it stand out from other candy bars. There's actually a ruler on the rapper. Showing that it was the full eight inches. So many jokes they discontinued the marathon bar in nineteen eighty one's. GonNa say this isn't a marathon barth of bustling in front of me. A version of it lives on Indie. Cadbury can I? Can I say the name? Yeah go ahead. It's curly curly. Curly Wurley so this was this was actually a competitive bar that had been out before the marathon. But it's it's like this you know there's bars out there that they are literally have a twin across the aisle. The the the the opponent makes Mars makes one cadbury makes the other kind of like. Yeah he's score exactly So Brent I win procured are not the shot not the good it turned down so interestingly enough talking about clearly it looks like rope. Like braided rope. It does it. Does it kind of falls apart? All right here we go. Oh it tastes like a ironed down the the chewy covered in chocolate there long strong down to get the friction on we shall. I mean look recharged me. It is like a really thin milk. Dud what they come in there either yellow or their Charleston. But that's that's Nougat as not good is what the consistency of flattening as you're not on.
