The High Desert in Southern California can be a dangerous place. It's not only a pit stop on the way to Las Vegas, but instead is home to a large population spread out over multiple cities. Recent years has seen crime escalate throughout the area, but it's a cluster of missing persons in a less than a two year period that caught my attention. This podcast will discuss these still open cases, and hopefully shed new light for the families.
Episode 9: The Case of Jesus Rivera, Sr.
Jesus River, Sr. went missing on March 11, 2019 while working on a job in the mountains in Southern California. He was working with someone he had known for some time in an area that he was unfamiliar with. When his family received a call letting them know that Jesus was missing, they were understandably concerned for his safety. What they didn't expect were several different stories regarding the events leading up to his disappearance, or the lack of support they would get from law enforcement.
If anyone listening to this episode has information regarding the disappearance of Jesus Rivera, Sr, please feel free to message the Missing/Jesus Rivera Facebook page. You can message this podcast as well.
