Welcome to Crime Historian. I’m fascinated and intrigued by history, especially criminal history. I write and tell about the strange, the obscure, and the forgotten. (Admittedly, some of the stories I tell are only strange, obscure, or forgotten to me.)

I am especially fascinated by crimes that are tied in to the geographical areas in which I have called home at one time or another.

I currently work full time as a teacher, and I love my job. I am addicted to good grammar, the analysis of information, and ultimately, the presentation of it. Perhaps that is why I am a self-professed crime historian.

While this originally started as a blog, it is now a podcast, as well. Please listen!

      • If you are addicted to good grammar, you may want to change the word ‘myself’ to ‘me’ here. You can only use the reflexive pronoun when you are performing the action of the verb. Then, you may want to repeat the word ‘for’ before á friend’, just for clarity.


  1. I just want to know if you have a type of contact for the Dishon family. I just watched the cold case onA&E and I cannot stop crying. There are some things about what happened to their daughter that hit very close to home for me and I just want to know if they would accept a donation in their daughters name or if not if they have somewhere that they would like me to send a donation in her name. I just want to do something to help them, my heart is broken for their family, her little brothers, just the whole thing hurts me so much.
    I signed up as your follower but if you cannot see my email or something I’d be happy to send it to you personally.
    Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to give.


  2. hello. The reason that Danny isn’t mentioned often is that I refused access to him by the profilers, I forget which one contacted Danny for interviews. He said if I would consent he would. Considering the topic and the information about his crimes I did not want my son to have access to that information since at the time of his arrest my child was a little boy. The State of Alabama had already come to his elementary school to ask my son did he know what his father was. I thought that was enough.


    • Hi Vicki,

      Are you referring to Daniel Lee Siebert? I knew he had two kids, but I didn’t know who with. Would love to hear more of your thoughts on him or the crimes in general if you are ever so inclined to share.
