    Dear beloved garagists, I was totally unfamiliar with this case, which doesn't seem to have received much attention. You say that the cabin belonged to Catherine's parents, who at the time had moved (apparently as usual) to their winter home in Florida. Could it be that the crime was the result of a random attack by someone who intended either to ravage the place or to occupy it through the winter, precisely because he expected the cabin to be empty? This individual might have done this before, or perhaps had seen that the couple had started packing a few days earlier. It would be interesting to know whether before 2002 Nameth's parents or their "neighbours" had ever had the impression that something was amiss in their cabins from the previous season. Obviously, the viciousness of the attack raises questions about the perpetrator...Waiting for the second part of the show. 😘

    @ Giulia, This is absolutely where my mind goes. It is possible that the embezzlement situation is simply just muddying the waters here. And to take it a step further from "blanks" post - it is certainly possible that some rando Gorton's fisherman looking dude was up there looking for a place to squat for the cold months or take any food, valuables and so on. Police say she was targeted but offer nothing to us to let us share that belief. There is something very simple missing here from the info that has been released. Not something that would solve the case but something that would paint a very clear picture for us of what happened there that night and possibly what direction we should be looking in. Thanks for posting and P.S. might be a fish stick dinner night! Nic

    This one got me thinking… could this have been two people? One to track her movements and one to lie in wait? Or could she have been in the wrong place at the wrong time? Was the attack meant for someone else at a different cabin but the murderer went to the wrong cabin by mistake?

    I just finished listening to the first episode. If there was some involvement in a embezzlement than is it possible that had something to do with the murder? But why not go after the husband too? Wish we had more sincere reporting to this story.

    Excellent job, Nic, as always. Oh Captain, my Captain…this was one of your best ever! I literally laughed out loud a few times. I’m with you on the theory that this was a random attack. The embezzlement case was already well under way and it doesn’t seem likely that there was a real reason to kill her. However, I am thinking that there could possibly be a connection to the drug trade. Maybe she knew more about it? Or was somehow involved? You guys are my favorite tc podcast for sure.

    In listening to the podcast, it occurred to me that maybe the killer saw her traveling alone. If the road was just 2 lanes, it would not have been strange for a car to be following her. If the house was locked up for the season, he could have figured she was alone. That would explain a killer showing up where she wasn’t expected. Just a thought.

    I keep wanting to suspect the husband but available info doesnt quite work with that. It does look like murder was the perp's intent. If its a would be squatter or burglar who hasnt yet done anytjing inside the cabin, why attack? Sure, people can be crazy. . .but THAT crazy yet composed enough to get away cleanly? Eh. I wish we had audio of the distress call. It's a very strange call as described here. Describing someone so presumably not yet being attacked. Then. . .what? My thought was someone (likelyhusband) confronts her there and forces her to make a scripted call, then attacks. Could the DNA be unrelated to the attack? Very frustrating case.

    True Crime Garage. This is for Nick&Captain. Can u guys please start covering cases where we the audience can put a FACE ON RHE VICTIM. This is the second case in a row where we the audience do a 'Google Search' and cannot see any pictures of the victim. Its hard to relate or get invested when there is no pictures of the victim.

    I just keep thinking that since we only have a transcript of her radio transmission, we don't actually have any idea what her tone was. Could it have been that the perpetrator was pretending to be injured or in trouble and she was calling in that she needed additional help? This could explain why should would have gotten close enough to someone she didn't know (in the middle of the woods in the dark) to be attacked.

    As a housewife and emergency worker I am asking “why was she at a laundromat?” I haven’t been In one for decades. They were embezzling and husband is a fire chief and they don’t have a washer/dryer? Was this a meeting place?

    Pondering the perpetrator's escape. If a targeted attack related to local criminal activity, did they drive to and park near the cabin, in which case aren't there tire tracks? And there are only two roads out, but I suppose LE would know if they were passed and spotted by a another vehicle. If targeted by someone dwelling lakeside the perp could have fled by boat, and washed self/discarded weapon in lake. If they are a wandering maniac sans car, did they hitchhike there? Coz it sounds like they would've been kinda memorable. It sounds like her radio must've been body mounted. I was picturing it in her vehicle, in which case why wouldn't she have locked doors closed windows burned rubber. If disturbed (by someone else, not mentally) most squatters would simply flee. If it was a random attack, and their appearance was genuine (not for disguise/misdirection), most likely it would be someone with eg. a paranoid delusion, and people that peculiar tend to be noticed by others, and not so organised as to disappear without a trace.

    I am a forest ranger and use radios to communicate both routine and emergency info everyday. If my radio transmission is cut off mid-sentence, it's most likely because I let up on the mic key. Sometimes I do this in emergencies because I need a moment "off the air" to think about what to say next, rather than "ummmmm" on the radio and confuse the dispatcher. Cathy might have been looking for the right words to describe the man she saw, or was interrupted by him or possibly his accomplice (Angela above states she thinks there were two people, seems possible).

    @ Alza - Thank you for posting. I agree and trust me I share your frustration. There are so many True Crime podcasts out there - too many really and a lot of them are covering the same cases. No disrespect to any of them but when we first started doing this we were covering a lot of cases that most had not heard of before and have tried our best to maintain that. It's sad that Cathy Nameth's case is pretty much an unknown case - we hope our coverage will change that. If these cases fade from the media and the public they tend to go away forever. Cheers Nic

    I'm sorry to Nick&Captain about 'putting a face on the victim' comment. I was just frustrated when doing research on the case and no pics were showing up. No pictures of any players involved with the case. However, Thanks for responding. Its nice that u guys are covering cases that are unknown. And sorry for my typos due to me typing so fast and not proof reading. I believe there is a connection between the fire department and her death. I can't say the husband did it but I won't rule out the husband. He did work at the fire department. This was not a random attack.

    This was a super interesting case but one filled with red herrings, in my opinion. The whole embezzlement thing, as Nick mentioned-- it really wasn't a big enough crime to warrant much of any retaliation. Small town politics and over what, $1500? It would have been knocked down to a misdemeanor. Likewise, the drug angle. These were smalltown pot dealers, not Scarface, selling dimebags to drunk drivers in a roadhouse. (And what really highlights to me the police and the DA just casting around aimlessly-- what difference does it make if the guy on the stand owns a rifle? In her call, she made no mention of a gun and she was stabbed to death after some sort of struggle or flight.) The husband could not have done it because the call went out over a frequency that was heard by multiple people. She didn't recognize her attacker in the call. Also, the husband was with the son. I assume the police asked the kid about the alibi. No one knew she was going there at that time. No, the most obvious thing to me, is that it was a random dude. Some homeless squatter or thief robbing the place OR someone hiding out and not wanting to be found. Was there anybody on the lam at that time in the general area? One thing that does confuse me, though. Why was she at the laundromat?

    I'm curious about how the husband ended up bringing his son to the crime scene. The son's pressence does make the husband much less suspicious but if he's an devious conspirator this seems not out of the question to use his son like that, which would also make the son not question if the father was involved.... also was wondering how the EMS communication ended.... whether someone could have jammed or cut the signal or maybe she had eyes on the raincoat guy and someone else blindsided her causing her to stop the communication.

    @ Brian - yes, this is an interesting angle. Often when the killer/ person responsible expects that he will be the one to "find" the body they will purposely bring someone to the scene with them. This for them provides an added layer of alibi. That could be the case here but given that this is a Saturday evening, there is a really good chance that David and his son were together when David heard the call and he swooped into action. If David left wherever he was with Nick immediately I think that would point more toward innocence. This story does not provide a good timeline. Often we can look at the details of those timelines and get a better idea of what happened, why and likely by who. One thing we should call into question is the quietness of this case. If someone stabbed to death one of my loved ones, in the woods on a rainy night, even if I was guilty of stealing money - I would still be shouting it from the mountain tops. This case is for the most part unknown and that is troubling to me. A lot of people will steal, very few will murder but whatever happened here where is the outcry? This does not mean that David is responsible. Its quite possible that he is afraid or believes he should have reason to be. This is a confusing case. There is something simple here that has not been reported - I know it. Cheers Nic

    I say this with all the love in the world... no sarcasm: elcho is pronounced el-ko and we say "Anna-go"...if it ever comes up in conversation with the 12 people that live there.. I vaguely recall my dad telling me about this case back in the day but he never knew much of the details. Elcho is tiny, even by my cornfield-village-sized standards. The local grocerer is behind/attached to the gas station/bait shop. If the cabin was "closed for winter" that likely means the docks were pulled in and the water, heat and possibly electricity was likely all turned off for the year. Unless they used the place for storage or weekending because they live right there. We live about 9 hours from ours so it's typically fully shut down for the winter. I'm not surprised she goes to laundromat. Sure, they were embezzling but kinda more skimming off the top. They weren't closet millionaires. My instinct is either it was someone from that party or she mentioned in passing "ah yeah I gotta stop out at the cabin real quick....." and that tipped the killer off. I don't know what y'all are picturing for lake houses but they are not identical summer camp cabins. Some are, but many are just normal houses and we're on a different lake so I don't exactly what her house looks like, but I know the general area. You can barely fit 2 cars on the roads. It's so rural that when my dad was staying there on an extended stay he had to call the post office and ask them to deliver his mail because they didn't deliver mail there regularly. It is not unheard of to have wolves or bears in your yard occasionally. Deer are a guarantee. One time my dad had an issue that required filing a police report and he had to wait 2 weeks for the sheriff to come back from vacation because no one else could/ was qualified(?) to take his statement. It's a beautiful area. I wouldn't live there. The nearest walmart is about 30ish minutes either way in Rhinelander or Antigo. Frankly, if this was a serial killer or a premeditated attack by someone familiar with the area, then her body wouldn't have been found. We still lose cell service from one room to the next much less in 2009. So if the attacker was a local covering up a crime, maybe they wanted her found to send a message? Or it was a transient from that party that was never looked into and now no one will ever know. In spite of the embezzlement, she didn't sound like a terrible person. I can't wrap my head around someone being murdered for anything shady you guys mentioned unless she wasn't supposed to die. Maybe someone wanted to scare her into keeping quiet and it got out of hand? This whole thing is like an episode of Pretty Little Liars, seriously.

    Early in the episode it was mentioned that Cathy had returned to her Mom and Dad's cabin to clean out the freezer of meat that was left there? Is it possible that was not the true reason, and she was actually returning to the cabin's neighborhood, not the house itself, in order to attend the party that was taking place nearby? That would explain why she never actually entered the cabin--she hadn't intended to--and how the perp knew she was expected there? Not clear on how far away from her Mom and Dad's place that party was happening. It would make sense that she would park her car in the cabin's driveway if it was close and walk to the party.

    @ Cat - thanks for the insights. I look up the pronunciations when putting together my notes for the show but often it does not account for the local(s) pronunciations - aggravating on my end as I tried to be a good story telling. I typically don't picture a traditional cabin as I know that's not really the standard these days or even in 2002. I could not find pictures of the lake house/cabin as there seems to be very little pictures readily available in this case. The lack of outcry for justice usually means someone very close to the victim is responsible. I don't know if her parents are still around but also the lack of the parents accusing the husband is also telling as well. Either they are not around or they don't suspect him. As for the party, I agree - she would likely park and walk over. But then we should have more to the story if she was spotted by anyone from this party that we don't hear about until years later and should be in my opinion - unconfirmed, that there was any party to begin with. I think there were obvious indicators at the scene that she did not go inside, in fact the purpose of her being there would provide indicators - meat still in freezer/ doors locked/ it was raining - so footprints running from attacker and none suggesting she even got close to the door of the cabin, and so on. I just keep going back to the idea that we so little info that it really makes it impossible to come up with any theories that would make sense. It's a frustrating case but I'm glad we covered it regardless. Cheers Nic
