The Disappearance of Andrew Gosden
It was the 14th of September 2007, and the sun was still very much alive in the UK, not yet succumbing to autumn’s bite. The Gosden family were all getting ready for the day ahead, the youngest of the family, Andrew, had a little more difficulty waking up than usual and his mother, Glenys, noticed he seemed irritable. Other from that, Andrew went about getting himself together for school and about 8 am was after leaving for the bus. He was observed by a family friend who had been sitting on a park bench not too far from the bus stop heading on his usual route.
However, Andrew did not go to school that morning. Instead, Gosden went to an ATM, withdrew 200 pounds, returned home, changed from school uniform to a black Slipknot T shirt and black jeans and whisked his wallet, keys and PSP (PlayStation Portable) into a distinctive schoolbag that had a variety of rock and metal band patches on it. Andrew then left home, and this was the last time he was ever there again.
In today’s bizarre case, we look at the 15 year long perplexing disappearance of Andrew Gosden.

The Unsolved Murder of Raonaid Murray
In the late hours of Friday night, down a darkly lit laneway in Glenageary, South Dublin, Ireland a voice pierced the September night air, a voice cried out “leave me alone, go away and fuck off”. These were witness reports of what would soon be determined to be of Raonaid Murray in her final moments.
Raonaid or “Rainy” lovingly called by friends had been out in a bar with some friends after finishing her shift at work. She had spent an hour there before deciding to head home briefly to change clothes as the group were deciding to head to a nightclub.
Though had friend waited, and even rang the house phone to see where she was, Raonaid did not show. Later that night, shortly 12;30 am as Raonaid’ s sister was returning home with some of her friends, they spotted something unusual in the laneway known locally as “The Gap” or more sinisterly as “The Cut”. There they found, tragically, was the lifeless body of the 17- year- old.
Raonaid had been viciously stabbed four times and even more heart-wrenchingly she had died within 20 yards (18 m) of her home, evidence later showing from pools of blood she had lived on and staggered for a time before succumbing to her wounds.
In today’s case, we cover Irelands “longest-running active murder investigation in modern Irish history,” with more than 9,000 people interviewed, from 12 suspects to no suspects and a 22-year-old question left on unanswered, who is responsible for the brutal and senseless murder of Raonaid Murray.
The Murder of Chandra Levy
*THIS EPISODE CONTAINS DESCRIPTIONS OF VIOLENCE, DOMESTIC ABUSE, ASSUALT AND SEXUALT ASSSUALT THAT SOME LISTENERS MAY FIND DISTURBING*
On May 1st, 2001, Chandra Ann Levy disappeared without a trace. The 24-year-old had recently wrapped up a paid internship with the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Washington, DC but was due to return to her home in Modesto, California in time for May Graduation. But this did not come to pass as five days later, on May 6th, Levy’s family would alert the Metropolitan Police Dept. of the District of Columbia (MPD) from Modesto that they had not heard from her. The police responded by carrying out a welfare check on Chandra’s apartment which resided in Dupont Circle but found nothing. Further investigating and from Levy’s own father, it would be learned that Chandra had been having an affair with a then U.S congressman Gary Condit. This information was corroborated by Chandra’s aunt. But beneath this story of what sounds like a tale of scandal, seedy secrets and murder, something that of which Hollywood itself could spin, beats the cold heart of truth. The truth of a truly horrifying investigation riddled with errors of judgement, media frenzy and trials by both court and television alike, in Today’s episode we will bring the lens back into focus on to that young woman who vanished twenty years ago and later be found 6 km from her home dead, in the Murder of Chandra Levy.
The Disappearance of Maddy Scott
On May 28th, 2011, twenty-year-old Madison Geraldine Scott or Maddy, attended a birthday party at Hogsback Lake approx. 25 km southeast of Vanderhoof, British Columbia. Maddy had attended the party with her friend Jordi Bolduc. But as the evening went on and turned to midnight, Maddy retired for the night to tent she pitched beside her 1990 white Ford F150 pick up truck. A fight had broken between Jordi and a few other men at the party out and left Jodi injured and as she was drunk also felt she needed to leave with her new boyfriend. After trying to talk Maddy into leaving with them it was clear Maddy didn’t want to get up as she was already settled in for the night, Jordi left.
Between the hours of 3 am and 4 am, many of the party goers had left, and these being some of the last people to physically see the young woman, many had reported talking to her and even offering her a ride back but Maddy declined. At 8:30 am Jordi and her boyfriend returned to the campsite as she had to pick up her clothes and sleeping bag before going to work. Having arrived, Jordi noticed the tent unzipped with Maddy’s sleeping bag and stuff moved to the side but with Maddy nowhere to be seen. Jordi stated she did not see Maddy anywhere and never reported the state of the tent to anyone.
With a party of over 50 people attending, a large frame of missing time and the trail getting colder by the minute, an investigation will be launched using some of the most investigative tools than have been used in a case before in BC history and theories involving the purposed Highway of Tears and even serial killer Israel Keyes, today we look into the unexpected and truly baffling disappearance of Maddy Scott.

Great to hear your voice - keep it up mate!
Looove all the cases so far and the research is incredible. Keep up the amazing job
I love this podcast because I either learn about a new case entirely, or I learn more about a case I’m already familiar with. The most important part to me is that Aaron is always respectful of and revenant to the victim and/or survivors.
Thank you for the integrity, Aaron, and please keep the episodes coming!
