    Episode 77 - Dorothy Arnold: The Vanishing of a Perfume Heiress and Socialite

    Episode 77 - Dorothy Arnold: The Vanishing of a Perfume Heiress and Socialite

    In December 1910, the heiress to a perfume empire vanished from the streets of Manhattan while shopping on the illustrious Fifth Avenue.
    Her disappearance left the public reeling with questions and speculations, and her family’s secrecy in handling the case only served to amplify the concerns of the mystified onlookers. The family was reluctant to engage the police in their investigation into the socialite’s disappearance, which led to a rift and an apparent power struggle between the two entities.
    The actions of the family, investigators, and the missing socialite herself paved the way for a plethora of conspiracy theories, and to this day, the vanishing of New York City socialite Dorothy Arnold remains one of the most infamous missing person cases in American history.

    Episode 76: Canada - Disappearance of Mekayla Bali

    Episode 76: Canada - Disappearance of Mekayla Bali

    16-year-old Mekayla Bali was last seen on the afternoon of April 12, 2016, in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. That morning, she went to school as usual but left shortly after arriving. Before she vanished, she sent her friends cryptic messages, made calls to unknown recipients, and her movements through town were strange. She even returned to school briefly before taking off again. There’s no evidence that she met up with anyone or that she left town on a bus or by other means, so what happened to Mekayla Bali on that sunny spring afternoon?

    Episode 73: USA - Murder of Heather Rich (Part 3)

    Brianna got sick and had to take an unexpected hiatus, so, the new plan for October is an in-depth coverage of a true crime case with all 3 parts being released at once! We appreciate your patience and your loyal listenership, so we're making it up to you the best we can. Now, on with the show...

    On October 2, 1996, in the small town of Waurika, Oklahoma, 16-year-old Heather Rich snuck out of her bedroom in the middle of the night to see a friend. She never returned home and for 7 agonizing days, her parents did everything they could to find their daughter. Meanwhile, on the evening of October 9, a Texas rancher and his granddaughter saw something floating in Belknap Creek. Assuming a calf had slipped into the river upstream and drowned, he shot the body twice to sink it. The next morning, he realized the calf was still floating in the creek. Upon closer inspection, he realized this wasn’t the body of a drowned calf – it was the body of a person…
