84. Broken and Busted: Alyssa Bustamante

On October 21, 2009, a 6-year-old neighbor girl who lives nearby shows up and asks if 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten,  the youngest of Patty Preiss’s children to come over and play for a bit.  At first, Patty said no but we know how convincing two little girls can be and she finally broke and said ok but Elizabeth had to be home by 6 pm for dinner. When 6 pm comes and goes and Elizabeth doesn’t arrive home, her mom knows something is not right. Elizabeth is scared of the dark and would never come home after nightfall. Patty makes a phone call to the neighbor’s house to see what time Elizabeth left their house. Patty is shocked to hear that Elizabeth was never at their house.  Police arrive to investigate and what unfolds is a sick and twisted tale.

83. A Ride with the Devil: Jackie Clarke

It is June 4, 1995, in Fredericton, New Brunswick, when eight-year-old Jackie Clarke goes missing. Jackie along with two friends were playing in and around Frog Pond, a pond near their homes located in the woods nearby. That evening, when Jackie didn’t come home, her mother called the parent of one of the friends to see if Jackie was at their house by chance. Hope turned to fear as the child’s mom said not only was Jackie not there but her son had been home for hours.

82. The Blue Eyed Six

We have another Listener Submitted Script for you today!

The Blue-Eyed Six was a group of men who thought they had a foolproof plan to make money by taking out life insurance policies on an old recluse, named Joseph Raber.  Thinking he was frail and on the verge of death, they hoped for a speedy return on their investment.

This crime became an international sensation  in 1878. In fact, it was so huge, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of Sherlock Holmes, paid homage to the town and the sensational name given to the murderers in his short story 'The Red-Headed League'.

The Blue Eyed Six was researched and written by Listener Amie Felty

81. The Lying Game

It is February 2008 in Arlington Heights Illinois, a suburb of Chicago,  where we first meet a young man by the name of Justin Newman. Justin is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed 20-year old who was working at a home improvement store and trying to figure out what to do with his life. Justin, who lived with his mother, was a generous kid who had been working since he could so that he could help his mom pay the bills. He was a very likable kid, responsible and hard-working. Working at the improvement store, allowed him to meet a lot of construction workers and contractors and one of these contractors was a man by the name of Ari Squire. This chance meeting would leave a trail of destruction. As is so often the case, not all is what it seems.
