Unsolved Mysteries

A young journalism major at Vincennes University in Indiana, Brook Baker, was found stabbed in her bed in her apartment in 1997. A strange detail was the the faucet in her bathroom sink was still on. People suspected a member of a local fraternity could be the murderer as Brook had recently done a story on date rape that featured the frat. Other suspects include the campus police officer who was Brook’s landlord (she moved to that building specifically for safety reasons, only to find that the police officer would enter her apartment at night without permission or announcing himself). Another theory was that someone responded to an ad for a roommate she put in the campus paper and killed her for unknown reasons.

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
