    Episode 32: The Mysterious Disappearance and Death of Lucille Drew

    Episode 32: The Mysterious Disappearance and Death of Lucille Drew

    On Episode 32, we're going to do things a little differently than that to which you have become accustomed.  This time, I’ll read several stories about the mysterious disappearance and death of Lucille Drew, from April of 1931. Because sometimes there's more to say than simply reading an obituary. I’m not here to try and solve the case, this isn’t a True Crime podcast, there are thousands of those out there already. Instead, The Obituary Files is about shining a light on people and their stories, as they were presented at the time of their death, that are otherwise forgotten by time, and lost to history.
