New Book Explores Murders, Missing Persons and Mysteries

Now available!  The nearly forgotten 1951 torso case that rocked Yukon, Oklahoma; the unsolved torso killings of Texas, New Mexico and Florida; the missing women who turned up dead across several states; the missing bride case of Moore, Oklahoma in 1958; the mysterious and  unsolved disappearances and murders in the heart of Louisiana and much, much more...INTO OBLIVION: MURDERS, MISSING PERSONS AND MYSTERIES by Marilyn A. Hudson.

Author Marilyn A. Hudson explores a collection of crimes long forgotten, and sometimes, ignored by the passage of time.

Cases of disappearance, murder, and often worse -
the mysterious disappearance of Audrey Moate in Louisiana in 1956...
the unsolved torso slaying of Betty Jack Stevens in Oklahoma in 1952...
the unsolved murder and dismemberment of Willie Lois Depew in Oklahoma in 1951...
the unsolved murder of Billie Schafer in Oklahoma in 1951...
Author and researcher Marilyn A. Hudson stands along the stretch of highway scene to a still open missing person case dating to May 1958 in Moore, Oklahoma. On a bright morning a young bride, Carol Batterman left the Crown Motel to look for a more permanent dwelling for the couple while the husband was stationed at the Navy Training Center in nearby Norman. She was never, with any certainty, ever seen or heard from again.


"Still" THE Book on the Bizarre in Oklahoma

From the mailbag: " Just finished 'Strange State' and what a treat!  I have read a lot about Oklahoma's strange aspects but this book tops all the others. It really is broad in its coverage. This should be in every library in the state!"
Strange State: Mysteries and Legends of Oklahoma (3rd Ed.) by Cullan Hudson (The Mound) is available in print and Kindle versions from Amazon. If it is not in your local library, do request they add it to their collections.

"Scream all you want. No one is coming to your rescue.

Her luck has always been bad, her decisions worse, and the 'American Dream' is her nightmare. 
He is the envy of many, wants for nothing, and makes it all look so easy.

They are about to meet and one of them will pay the ultimate price.

There are among us dark souls planting seeds of evil in fields most of us don't care to venture. In the shadows along the borders of our civilized world, they reap from the flesh of the lost a foul harvest.

But some things grow tougher in the shadows.  Sometimes they fight back."

Early comments about the work :

".. it was very well written. With a lot of cliffhangers that kept you just so intrigued. You never really knew what was around the next corner. Loved the book now waiting for the movie."-- Lorene Young, Case Management Assistant

 Watch for soon from Amazon and other dealers.
