    Sandra Cantu // 399

    In March of 2009, a California girl headed out of her house to play with friends in her neighborhood, and was captured on surveillance footage skipping down the street. When she failed to return home for dinner, her family reported her missing. As the days ticked by with no sign of her, the FBI created a profile of their suspect. But this profile would prove to be completely incorrect, and the real suspect would stun the police, the community, and anyone who was following the case. This is the story of Sandra Cantu.

Love love love

Love you guys and your chemistry with each other! You really have it down. Been listening for a couple years and always excited when a new one drops. So glad you have so much content. Thank you!

This is the best podcast IMO

I don’t understand the reviews of people not liking this show. I feel like they take the cases super serious and they try to cover some of the lesser known ones. I really appreciate the way they deliver the content. I will continue to listen every week!
