    Regina Marie Bos' life was beginning to come around. After struggling for several years and an exceptionally difficult Summer she'd gotten a promotion, had a house in the works and was dating a new guy. One cool, October night, the talented singer went out to a bar in Lincoln, Nebraska to participate in an open mic night and never made it home.

    Her car was left exactly where she'd parked, directly across the street from the bar. There were no signs of a struggle, no pieces of evidence, nothing to suggest what might have happened. Perhaps the most disturbing detail for her family was the condition of her beloved guitar, left behind in her car's open trunk. Something Gina never would have done, if she'd had a choice.

    Bizarrely, the forty year old mother of three vanished from a city street, just yards from the bar where employees were closing up and band members were walking equipment out yet no one saw anything, no one heard anything. It was as if she'd simply vanished into thin air. As investigators worked the case, they began to narrow their focus on someone close to Gina while her family has worked endlessly to raise awareness of her case in their desperate pursuit to bring Gina home.

    157 - The Murder of Donnie Farrell

    ***Sponsored by Candid! Visit CandidCO.com/Trace and use code TRACE for $75 off your starter kit***

    One homecoming weekend at Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ, everyone was looking to party and have a good time, including nineteen year old Donnie Farrell. However, while most students weekends went off without a hitch, Donnie would find himself the target of a sudden, violent and unprovoked assault and within hours he would pass away.

    Investigators managed to find surveillance footage of the suspect and noted he was wearing a unique hoodie, limited in supply. They had descriptions from witnesses and a nickname the suspect used, but finding his true identity proved to be a difficult task in an investigation that spanned thousands of miles across multiple states.

    Who killed Donnie Farrell and how has he managed to evade authorities for nearly fourteen years?

    156 - The Disappearance of Audrey Groat

    ***Sponsored by: BetterHelp. Visit BetterHelp.com/Trace to save 10% off your first month!***

    On a sunny, summer afternoon, forty-one year old mother of six Audrey Groat left home with a family friend and never returned. For nearly three decades now, the mystery of her disappearance and the search for Audrey has haunted both the children she left behind and the investigators who tried to find the answers.

    What initially appeared to be the case of a stranger abduction took on a very different complexion when police discovered that the last person to see Audrey alive had been harboring a dark secret. Had Audrey truly been the victim of a random crime or are some secrets worth killing to keep?

    Thirty-year old Traci Kegley was about to begin a new life. The recently divorced mother of a two year old daughter had faced some setbacks, but she was moving forward. She had just gotten a new job and was excited for her first day... but she'd never make it.

    On the afternoon of Sunday, April 26th, 1998, Traci set off with her two year old to run errands. She stopped to fill up her gas tank and then drove off, never to be seen again. More than twelve hours later, a passerby found her car sitting on an isolate stretch of highway. Sitting in the back, still buckled in, was her daughter but Traci was gone.

    Police launched searches, got the word out to the media and pushed hard to track her down but they had to contend with miles of thick woods, difficult terrain and a slew of flooded pits and quarries. The horror of the truth was difficult to dismiss; she could be almost anywhere. While some believed she'd likely fallen victim to a random attack, investigators began to feel that those responsible for her disappearance were likely not only locals, but people Traci knew.

    GoFundMe for Evelyn Colon: https://gofund.me/7862f1a4

    For forty-five years the mystery of the Carbon County Beth Doe haunted Pennsylvania. Who was she, how did she end up in Carbon County and who murdered the pregnant woman before dismembering her remains and throwing her off an overpass bridge. Now, thanks to genetic genealogy, she has been positively identified as fifteen year old Evelyn Colon of Jersey City, NJ. Even more surprisingly, her former boyfriend, Luis Sierra, has been arrested and charged with murder.

    In addition to discussing this amazing update, we will look at seven other cases which have had less major updates in the past years. Those include the Abduction of Angela Hammond, the Disappearance of LaShaya Stine, the Murder of Nick Kunselman and Stephanie Hart-Grizzell, the Abduction and Murder of Isabel Celis, the Vanishing of Asha Degree, the Disappearance of Dail Dinwiddie and the Littleton Colorado Bowling Alley Triple Homicide of Erin Golla, Bobby Zajac and James Springer Jr.

    154 - The Murder of Alexandra Anaya

    154 - The Murder of Alexandra Anaya

    ***Sponsored by: BetterHelp! Visit BetterHelp.com/Trace for 10% off your first month!***

    Thirteen year old Alexandra Anaya vanished without a trace from her home in Hammond, Indiana. Her mother, Sandra was baffled. No signs of forced entry, no signs of a struggle. It was almost as if she had disappeared from the face of the earth.

    While Sandra, her family and police were trying to track down the missing teen, the Chicago Police were responding to a call about a body discovered in the Little Calumet River. Wrapped in chains and strapped to a cinder block was the dismembered torso of a young woman.

    Three weeks later, a DNA match confirmed that Alexandra Anaya had been brutally murdered before her killer severed her arms, legs and head. To this day, all of her remains have never been found.

    While locals believed the crime had to have been random and was likely committed by a serial killer, Alexandra's mother felt she knew exactly who was responsible and he was definitely no stranger.

MY FAVORITE PODCAST

Trace Evidence is THE BEST true crime podcast!!! It is my FAVORITE podcast! Steven Pacheco does an amazing job telling true crime stories, relaying accurate and relevant information, and covering all possible theories as to what may have happened in each case. Steven does a great job of presenting the facts and telling what happened in the least biased way possible. One of the things I appreciate most is the level of respect Steven has for the victims in these cases. I’ve tried listening to other true crime podcasts with more than one host, but as soon as I hear laughter/careless banter/harmful sarcasm, etc. I cannot feel ok continuing to listen to it. I’m just not comfortable listening to a podcast about a missing or murdered person, where there is laughter involved. It just doesn’t seem right. What if a loved one of the person the case is about was listening? Trace Evidence and The Vanished Podcast (Wondery) are the best true crime podcasts in my opinion. The level of respect for the people in these cases is undeniable. Most of the time I would rather listen to this podcast than watch a true crime show, and that says a lot!!!! Thanks Steven!
