    Wondery Presents: The Apology Line

    Wondery Presents: The Apology Line

    If you could call a number and say you’re sorry, and no one would know…what would you apologize for? For fifteen years, you could call a number in Manhattan and do just that. This is the story of the line, and the man at the other end who became consumed by his own creation. He was known as “Mr. Apology.” As thousands of callers flooded the line, confessing to everything from shoplifting to infidelity, drug dealing to murder, Mr. Apology realized he couldn’t just listen. He had to do something, even if it meant risking everything. From Wondery the makers of Dr. Death and The Shrink Next Door, comes a story about empathy, deception and obsession. Marissa Bridge, who knew Mr. Apology better than anyone, hosts this six episode series.

    The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 7: The Mall Passer, The Eleven, & No Ending

    The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 7: The Mall Passer, The Eleven, & No Ending

    Two more semi-well-known criminals have been woven into the fabric of this story, the story of the disappearances of Rachel Trlica, Renee Wilson, and Julie Moseley. In this final part of our series on The Fort Worth Missing Trio: The “Mall Passer,” aka James Mitchell DeBardeleben, and the confessor of “The Eleven That Went To Heaven,” Edward Harold Bell. Though there is no evidence at all that either of these criminals were involved in the disappearance of the Trio, they have been forever written into the mythology of the case.

    The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 6: The Other Private Investigator

    The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 6: The Other Private Investigator

    When Private Investigator Dan James came on the case in the mid-1990s, he was continuing work he’d already been doing in his spare time since Rachel Trlica, Renee Wilson, and Julie Moseley disappeared on December 23rd, 1974. When reviewing the report he sent to the Fort Worth Police, it’s sometimes difficult to know exactly what the PI was reporting. Perhaps some of it was information only the cops would comprehend. However, a few of the leads James dug up are interesting, particularly the individual whose house Renee’s father, Richard Wilson, headed to almost immediately upon discovering the girls were nowhere to be found.

    The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 5: The Race Car Driver and Other Bad Actors

    The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 5: The Race Car Driver and Other Bad Actors

    Whether officially or as the result of citizen sleuthing, there have been many persons of interest in the disappearances of Julie Moseley, Renee Wilson, and Rachel Trlica. On this episode: a suspect in the eyes of a retired Fort Worth burglary detective, a Cowtown Speedway stock car driver and convicted pedophile, a recently convicted abductor and killer of two young girls more than 1300 miles from Fort Worth, and a depraved Fort Worth man who is not only suspected in other area disappearances but who also likely forged letters in one of his likely victim’s names.

    The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 4: Jon Swaim and the Brazoria Bones

    The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 4: Jon Swaim and the Brazoria Bones

    After doing everything they knew to do and after coming to the conclusion that the Fort Worth Police were not, the families of 17-year-old Rachel Trlica, 14-year-old Renee Wilson, and 9-year-old Julie Moseley decided to get some outside help. They hired private investigator Jon Winter Swaim, a polarizing figure in the city who was known to get results, no matter what it took. After chasing down more leads than police, the private eye found the most promising one yet, or at least it looked that way, when human bones were found down in south Texas, in Brazoria County.

    The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 3: From Nowhere to Nowhere

    The Fort Worth Missing Trio Part 3: From Nowhere to Nowhere

    In the days and weeks following the disappearances of 17-year-old Rachel Trlica, 14-year-old Renee Wilson, and 9-year-old Julie Moseley on December 24th, 1974, and after the arrival of the infamous letter, things continued to grow more complicated and confusing. Bad tips, terribly cruel prank calls, and strange sightings took up more valuable time than the Wilson’s, the Moseley’s, and the Arnold’s had. Perhaps a few things, however, can be gleaned from the newspaper reports and Fran Arnold’s notes, which kept at the families’ activities at least somewhat documented. Still, though, nothing was panning out at the time...and nothing, really, had panned out in the following decades.
