 119 Betty Shanks | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4246

In September 1952, Betty Shanks was attacked as she walked home from the tram stop. Brisbane was a city where young women regularly walked home after dark alone but that would change. In the immediate aftermath of Betty’s death, public transportation use went down and the use of private taxis went up. This was one of those cases that rocked the city and it seemed that no one would feel safe until the culprit was caught. But he never was.

 116 Lauren Spierer | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3497

Lauren Spierer was a 20-year-old college student at Indiana University. Her disappearance in June of 2011 would become one of the most well known disappearances in US history. There was been a lot of speculation and rumours about what happened that night. As well as reluctance by those with her that night to speak to the police. And refusal from the Bloomington State Police to release surveillance footage featuring Lauren. But what is the most haunting about this case is Lauren herself. She was bright, beautiful and well liked. She disappeared walking only a few blocks from her home after celebrating the end of semester with her friends. And now, more than seven years later, no trace of Lauren Spierer ever found.    Thank you to today's sponsors: Brooklinen - Get $20 and free shipping. Use promo code SIGHT.
