56. Michael Hernandez & Charlene Downes

Pahuuden jälkeen

Michael oli 14-vuotias kun hän tappoi samanikäisen koulukaverinsa ennen tunnin alkua. Tapaus oli raaka ja järkytti koko koulua. Kun poliisi tutki Michaelin päiväkirjaa, he saivat selville, että Michael oli suunnitellut tappavansa myös muita ihmisiä. Toisessa tapauksessa 14-vuotias Charlene ei tule kotiin illalla hänen vanhempansa ajattelivat hänen menneen kaverille yöksi. Kun lopulta katoamisilmoitus tehdään, ei Charlenesta löydy jälkeäkään. Muutamia vuosia myöhemmin poliisi saa vihjeen ja epäilyt kohdistuvat kahteen mieheen, jotka omistavat kebabravintolan. Tämän myötä nousee esiin myös teoria Charlenen ruumiin hävityksestä.

Listen now at http://www.dummies.fan/MurderandMore. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram @scarytimepodCredit for this episode goes to Joseph Cusack and his documentary, The Murder of Charlene Downes. The 25th of May is International Missing Children’s Day, first initiated by Ronald Reagan in 1983 and is in place to not only bring awareness to the thousands of missing children worldwide but to also honour organisations who put up a daily fight for these missing children. Whilst most children run away of their own accord, due to bullying or a poor family life, 1 in 5 are at risk of being sexually exploited. There are several charities based in the UK that work to support children and young adults. The Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre provide useful resources and advice to safeguard children against the dangers of sexual exploitation and online sexual abuse. Missing People is a well-known charity that works to support the families of people who have gone missing and also attempt to support the people who go missing too, by offering a listening ear if a child wants to confide in someone but doesn’t trust or have anyone they can talk to. They try to provide advice to children who are considering going missing, but also act as a mediator for children who have run away and don’t wish to talk to their families. Childline is run 24/7, provided by the NSPCC and is a service to provide advice and guidance to children who are suffering from domestic violence, abuse or who are considering running away from home.

Uncover True Crime

There is no denying that the teenage years are tough. There is a lot of pressure to conform with their peers, to figure out what they want to do with the rest of their lives, all whilst dealing with hormones and trying to find their identity. Some teenagers get through this time with ease, others struggle a little more and sadly, there are some that are exploited by people with sinister intentions. Trigger warning, there will be explicit language and discussion of sexual abuse and grooming as we discuss the unsolved disappearance of Charlene Downes.  If you have any information on Charlene's case, please contact the incident room on 01253 607370 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or you can email charlenedownesinvestigation@lancashire.pnn.police.ukTwitter - @Uncover_podInstagram - uncovertruecrimepodCase Suggestion Form - https://forms.gle/mUDbNYeoTZ5kGfaq7Music by CO.AG - Dark Rage, Haunted and The RakeAll sources and picture can be found at uncovertruecrimepodcast.blogspot.com
