    Jigsaw - The Sligo Man

    Jigsaw - The Sligo Man

    This episode of Jigsaw reveals the various clues to the identity of someone who perhaps, for one reason or another, did not want to be identified. Nevertheless - with no name - Locate International, along with the police, are interested to know if the person dubbed 'The Sligo Man' can finally be revealed.
    He gave his name as Peter Bergmann, and an address in Austria, when checking into a small hotel in the Irish town of Sligo. But the name was false. And the address didn't exist. What he did next has baffled investigators and left more questions than it has given answers. But the end result was that the man was found deceased on a nearby beach just a few days later.
    Jigsaw is a podcast series from What's The Story - brought to you in association with Locate International. There are more than 1,000 unidentified bodies in the UK. All of the could be mothers or fathers, sons or daughters. Their lives have been cut short - but without an ending. Can you help reunite these people with their name?
    If you want to contribute to the search then join the discussion. Locate International have set up an online forum. Visit https://forum.locate.international and share your ideas and theories with real investigators and fellow listeners.
    We have ten episodes of Jigsaw for you to listen to, with a brand new episode every Wednesday.

    Elisa Roberson - USA

    Elisa Roberson - USA

    The Missing Podcast travels to North America - and in this first episode we tell the story of the baffling and tragic disappearance of Elisa Roberson.
    Elisa was born in Nicaragua, but settled in Texas with her mother, in search of a better life. But her story comes to an end in August 1989, when she was aged just 13 - after she disappeared after setting off on a walk to meet a friend. Speculation has swirled ever since around exactly what happened. Fingers have pointed in multiple different directions. But the family and law enforcement feel they are no closer to getting the answers they crave.
    This episode hears from Elisa's younger sister Ruby. She reveals exactly what happened around the time Elisa vanished, and what's gone on in the decades since. She hopes that someone listening may be compelled to reach out to the authorities and end the families suffering.
    This episode is supported by Doe Network. They exist to appeal for answers in hundreds of missing persons cases worldwide. Visit their website The Doe Network to find more information in this and many other cases, which all need help. They believe the case of Elisa Roberson CAN still be solved.

    In our final episode of the season, we bring you the story of Marshal Iwaasa, a 26 year old man from Alberta Canada, whose burned out truck was discovered by hikers in a remote forest north of Vancouver in November, 2019, whilst Marshal himself, was nowhere to be found.

    The discovery of Marshal’s truck prompted an endless number of questions. Who had set the vehicle on fire, what was it doing so far from Marshal’s home and most importantly, where was its owner?

    We spoke to Marshal’s sister Paige, who has been searching for the answers to these questions for the better part of five years. She shares her theories about what happened to her brother, her frustrations at the lack of progress made by the authorities and her hopes that one day, she’ll finally learn the truth about what happened to her brother.

    In this episode we cover the tragic story of Clarissa ‘Carrie’ Culberson, a 22 year old woman who vanished without trace from her home in Blanchester Ohio, after a night spent partying with friends in 1996.

    Carrie was murdered by her boyfriend Vincent Doan, a local man she’d been seeing on and off for two years, someone with a rap sheet longer than he was tall. We normally don’t cover murder cases on ‘The Missing’ but Carrie’s mother Deb’s decades long effort to locate her daughter’s body, means there is still very much a question mark at the heart of this case. We spoke to Deb about her decision to continue her quest for the truth, one that won’t stop until her daughter is laid properly to rest.

    In this episode, we recount the story of Charles Horvath-Allan, a 20 year old British man, who in 1989, left his home, to hike across Canada, and has been missing ever since.

    Charles had made it as far as the city of Kelowna, where he was last seen cashing a cheque at a bank in May. He was scheduled to meet his parents in Hong Kong in August. The fax he sent, detailing his excitement about their reunion and inquiring about the wellbeing of the family’s cats, was the last time they would ever hear from him.

    We spoke to his mother Denise, about her decades long investigation into British Columbia’s backpacking circuit and about the impact her tireless search for the truth about what happened to her son has had on her.

Loving Jigsaw!

Recently discovered this podcast and have listened to all of the jigsaw episodes. I think this is an absolutely brilliant idea, and would love to hear that it brings some results for these people who have remained unidentified, some for over 50 years. Good job!
