Poor Dedication to this Craft

By Edith Victoria - Jan 07 2020

Unfortunately, little dedication to craftsmanship or storyline. It seems to be poorly researched, and the monotoned narrator relies primarily on unreliable testimony to construct any sort of narrative. This piece is also riddled with minutes upon minutes of advertisements.

Too Much Time Focused on Family

I want to like this podcast but there is way too much audio of interviews with the family/friends of the missing person. It is wonderful that the host is giving the family and friends a platform to speak about their missing loved one but in my opinion it does not make for an interesting true crime podcast.

Judith Geurin

Podcast cover
Read more

Judith Geurin was last seen in Sodus Point, NY in late January of 1991. Her boyfriend said that Judith had left to move to Florida but the only thing missing was Judith. She had left behind all of her belongings, even her car. The police did not have any reason to suspect foul play so Judith's case went cold for many years. There is no record of Judith accessing her finances or using her social security number after January of 1991. Years later, police began to suspect that Judith had been the victim of foul play.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Judith Guerin please call the Wayne County Sheriff's Office at 315-946-5773 or 315-946-9771.

On June 2, 2011, Angela Gilbert was walking on timber land used for logging in Granite Falls, Washington with an acquaintance named Colt White .  At some point, Colt returned without Angela. When asked about this, he allegedly said that she had continued to walk along the land near the Stillaguamish River. Unfortunately, no one ever got a chance to ask Colt more about what happened on that warm spring day walk because he disappeared shortly after Angela. Several weeks later, Colt’s body was found in the Stillaguamish River. During searches, some of Angela's belongings were found in the area but police told her family they believe the items were planted. It has been eight long years since Angela disappeared and her family believes there are more people out there who know what happened.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Angela Gilbert, please call the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office at 425-388-3849.
