Every day, stories unfold that have no resolution. Unresolved is an investigative and immersive look at those stories, as host Micheal Whelan tries to determine why these stories - unsolved crimes and other unexplained phenomena - have no ending.

    Short Stories #2 (Tony Harrelson & Robert Pillsen-Rahier)

    This episode contains two separate, unrelated stories that haven't been reported on much in the past.

    In October of 2009, 46-year-old Tony Harrelson was shot and killed in Camp Hill, Alabama. A truck driver for the U.S. Postal Service, Tony is believed to have fallen prey to a gunman who had been robbing postal workers throughout eastern Alabama between 2008 and 2009.

    In July of 1990, 15-year-old Robert Pillsen-Rahier would disappear while spending time at the Cheyenne Mesa Adolescent Treatment Facility in Colorado Springs. While investigators never found any evidence of foul-play, Robert's mother continues to believe that employees of the facility know more than they ever told police.

    Matt Stewart

    Matt Stewart

    In the early morning hours of June 9th, 2009, a violent home invasion would take place in Mooresville, North Carolina.

    Just after midnight, Matt and Angel Stewart were sleeping when an unknown individual opened fire on them from their bedroom doorway. Angel grabbed the couple's young son, who was also asleep in the room, and began running to a neighbor's house; while 31-year-old Matt - who had already been shot - jumped out of bed and heroically attacked the gunman.

    Hours later, Matt's body would be found inside of the home, having become the victim of a mysterious and violent crime. But more than a decade later, questions continue to linger about what really happened that evening and why...

    The Northern Bank Robbery

    The Northern Bank Robbery

    Some listeners told me that they had trouble with some of the volume levels in this episode, so I have uploaded a different audio file which - hopefully - won't have the same issues. Sorry for the inconvenience!



    On the evening of December 20th, 2004, two Northern Bank executives carried out the largest heist in British history.

    Just before 6:00 PM, Assistant Branch Manager Kevin McMullan told all but one of the staff members to go home early. Once they’d left, Kevin McMullan and the other staff member, Chris Ward, went down to the vault and began to place £50 notes into a large sports bag. They carried it up past the unsuspecting security guards and out onto the busy street.

    A short distance from the bank, a man in a baseball cap was waiting for them. The man took the bag before explaining that they had to return to the bank where they would receive further instructions...

    Introducing Chameleon: Hollywood Con Queen

    Introducing Chameleon: Hollywood Con Queen

    For the past three years, a master con artist has lured a long and growing list of entertainment industry professionals to Indonesia and scammed them out of tens of thousands of dollars by posing as powerful female Hollywood producers pretending to be setting up big-budget film projects. From extracting money to holding blackmail material to even baiting a male victim into phone sex, there seemed no limit to what this person was willing - and able - to do. It’s a story that involves a brilliant sociopath, powerful producers who have had their identities stolen, and a dogged female private investigator who’s chased their online shadow for years (often from her NJ home after her kids are in bed). In this series, two journalists and hosts, Josh Dean and Vanessa Grigoriadis go deep into the most devious and outrageous scam in Hollywood history—one that’s fooled trainers, make-up artists, and security guards, and also dragged in some of the most powerful women in entertainment. The story is a bit of the man hunt—listeners are following along, participating in hunting this guy and hopefully at the end find of the show, an arrest has been made and listeners find out who it is.

    The Investor Murders (Part Two: Trials & Tribulations)

    The Investor Murders (Part Two: Trials & Tribulations)

    On September 10th, 1984 - two years after Alaska's largest unsolved murder - authorities announced that they had a suspect in custody.

    John Kenneth Peel was a 24-year-old living in Bellingham, Washington - who seemed to be the perfect match for the killer. In addition to matching the suspect profile, Peel had a complicated prior relationship with the victims, and had both the means and motive to commit the crime.

    However, the case presented by state officials over the next several years would reveal large gaps in the narrative they had spent years (and millions of dollars) weaving, leaving behind several questions that remain unanswered to this day...

    The Investor Murders (Part One: A Tragedy In Craig, AK)

    The Investor Murders (Part One: A Tragedy In Craig, AK)

    On the afternoon of September 7th, 1982, it was discovered that a ship - anchored in a lonely harbor about one mile outside of Craig, Alaska - had caught fire.

    Hours later, after the flames had been extinguished, emergency personnel would discover the bodies of at least four people, which had been burned beyond recognition. It was initially theorized that as many as nine people could have been on board at the time of the fire (whose origins remained clouded in doubt) but it would take months to determine the true cost of this tragedy.

    As arson investigators began to look over the crime scene, it became apparent that this was no accident; the fire had been intentionally started by someone looking to cover up the largest mass murder in Alaskan history...
