Curious Case

Interesting travel through time to find any information about a mysterious woman who while her life and death both remain a mystery, she seems to have left an impression on those who saw her!

How to spend hours for nothing

I was really engaged in this podcast until I realized that it’s basis was ridiculous. How can one spend years traveling around, pondering conspiracies and intrigue without coming to a conclusion? Gee, that sounds like a great podcast. WRONG! Start out by saying that this is only a story about the mystery of a woman’s death and it remains unsolved to this day.

Terroirexplorer ,


Solid podcast and investigation, for sure. But a few major red flags: first, they are unwilling to see ALL the ways this woman's movement and behavior is like that of a sex worker. They think prostitution is a bad word so they don't want to consider it. They want her to be a spy. Second, the are treating as legitmate the witness testimonies of people who did not actually know or speak to her, but remember seeing A WOMAN (was it even her??) 47 years ago in a shop or restaurant? Forensic professionals have proven dozens of time that witnesses are deeply unreliable with descriptions moments after they witness a crime live. Come on guys! Do the public DNA registers comparison and let's wrap this up.
