LA Woman Who ‘Vanished’ Months Ago May Be a Human Trafficking Victim, Authorities Say

On Aug. 28, Leah Rose Altmann left the Los Angeles apartment she shared with a roommate. Carrying only a backpack, she didn’t say where she was going. She left most of her possessions behind, including her clothing and makeup.

She hasn’t returned. About a month later, police in L.A.’s North Hollywood neighborhood spotted her outside a Panera Bread. It was the last time she has been seen.

Altmann, 27, was an avid user of social media, but her accounts have now gone dormant. She didn’t call her mother on her birthday in November — which family members say isn’t normal.

“She just vanished,” her father, Paul Altmann, tells PEOPLE. “We have no idea where she is or what she’s doing. Everyone is very worried about her, because she just wouldn’t vanish for so long.”

“She’s 27, but she’s only 4-foot-9-inches tall and 90 lbs.,” Paul continues of his daughter, who is fond of wearing

Shot in the Dark review: pure, undiluted rubbernecking – feeding on human misery

What is it? Nightcrawler, the documentary or Alan Partridge’s Crash Bang Wallop: What a Video gone stateside.

Why you’ll love it: there are true-crime shows that hide their prurience under a classical soundtrack, arty camerawork or a Scandi-noir aesthetic. But Shot in the Dark is pure, undiluted rubbernecking with barely an attempt at justifying the content. Look at this crash. Look at this fire. Look at this crashed car that then goes on fire. Drag your knuckles this way because have we got a show for you.

A documentary crew follows three Los Angeles stringers, journalists who listen to the emergency wavelength at night and then race each other to the scene of newsworthy tragedies. Their footage can be sold for top dollar to news networks that fill their airtime with fiery spectacle and pixelated corpses on gurneys, wheeled into the back of the ambulances they

Couple Charged With Abuse After 11-Month-Old Is Found With Human Bite Marks


A Missouri couple faces child abuse charges after their 11-month-old son was found bloodied and with injuries including bite marks, ruptured eardrums and a broken nose, PEOPLE confirms.

According to a news release from police in Troy, Missouri, police were dispatched last Friday on a report of an injured juvenile. When they arrived, officers and paramedics saw an 11-month-old infant with “substantial bruises, cuts to the head and face, human bite marks on his body,” and bleeding inside his ears and nose.

The infant’s father, Brandon D. Johnson, told police he’d been alone in the apartment with the child the previous night, and the two had laid down on a living room couch around 11 p.m.

To prevent the infant from falling off, the father allegedly said he positioned the child along the back of the couch and between the father’s left arm and chest. The boy at the time had no injuries other

PEOPLE Explains: The Natalee Holloway Case and the Recent Discovery of Human Remains

For more than 12 years, the Natalee Holloway case has remained a mystery. There have been few new clues in the case of the 18-year-old Alabama high school senior who disappeared while on a class trip to Aruba.

But on Wednesday, Natalee’s father, Dave Holloway, said he may have made a “major discovery” in the case of his daughter, saying that unidentified human remains have been found behind a house in Aruba.

He made the revelation during an appearance on NBC’s Today show to promote Saturday night’s premiere of Oxygen’s new true crime series, The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

Here are five things to know about the case and the latest developments.

Natalee Holloway’s Father Says Tip Has Led To Discovery of Human Remains in Aruba: ‘It Would Finally Be the End’

According to Natalee Holloway‘s father, a tip from a man who claims to have helped dispose of her body 12 years ago has led to the discovery of unidentified human remains behind a house in Aruba.

Calling it a “major discovery,” Dave Holloway made the revelation Wednesday morning during an appearance on NBC’s Today show to promote Saturday night’s premiere of Oxygen’s new true crime series, The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

“We have a person who states he was directly involved with [suspect] Joran van der Sloot in disposing of Natalee’s remains,” Holloway told Today Wednesday. “I thought, you know, there may be something to this. We’ve chased a lot of leads and this one is by far the most credible lead I’ve seen in the last 12 years.”

Holloway and private investigator T.J. Ward said they have been back and forth to Aruba over the last 18 months and,

How The Serial Team’s New Podcast S-Town Evolved From True Crime Into Human Tragedy

Warning: The following article contains extensive spoilers for the first four episodes of S-Town.

When an Alabama man named John B. McLemore approached the This American Life team back in 2014 and asked them to to investigate a supposed small-town murder, producer Brian Reed was wary. As endearing and intriguingly eccentric McLemore was, he also came off like a classic conspiracy theorist—an obsessive misanthrope convinced of vast, covert wrongdoing both in the world at large, and particularly in his own rural “shit-town.” “To be honest, I was thinking, ‘Is this guy just a total crank?” admits producer Julie Snyder. “But on the other hand, he’s a pretty entertaining crank.”

Reed was unsure whether to pursue the story, which would take him to Bibb County, Alabama, to investigate a local man who McLemore claimed had been bragging about getting away with murder. Serial was
