Visit SolidGoldPet.com/Trace for 30% off your first order.In April of 1997, fifty year old Judy Smith attended a conference with her husband, Jeffrey, in Philadelphia. While the conference was work for Jeffrey, Judy planned to do some sightseeing during the day and then spend evenings with her husband. Unfortunately, Judy would mysteriously vanish.For five months investigators worked the case, casting a lot of suspicion onto Judy's husband who always maintained his innocence. Then, five months later, in September of 1997, Judy's remains were recovered from Pisgah National Forest in Western North Carolina. She had been the victim of homicide and while catching her killer was a top priority there were many unanswered questions.How did Judy find herself in Western North Carolina, why hadn't she told anyone about her plans to go there and who made the horrible decision to end her life?For more information please visit: https://www.trace-evidence.comhttps://www.patreon.com/traceevidence Social Media:https://twitter.com/TraceEvPodhttps://www.instagram.com/traceevidencepod/https://www.facebook.com/groups/traceevidencepodMusic Courtesy of: "Lost Time" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/Sources: https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/nfsnc/recarea/?recid=48114 | https://naturalatlas.com/picnic-areas/stony-fork-2113153 | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pisgah_National_Forest | https://mycitypaper.com/articles/072497/article015.shtml | https://www.citizen-times.com/story/news/local/2018/01/31/blue-ridge-parkway-rape-case-asheville-still-unsolved/1082444001/ | https://www.blueridgenow.com/news/20000307/styles-killer-could-be-out-in-20-years | https://www.citizen-times.com/story/life/2017/11/08/murders-our-forests-still-haunting-decade-later/834298001/ | https://mountainx.com/news/community-news/asheville_man_charged_with_assault_and_kidnapping_also_person_of_interest_i/ | https://mountainx.com/news/012010buzz1/ | https://www.blueridgenow.com/news/20000307/man-gets-to-plead-second-degree-murder-for-lack-of-evidence | https://www.newspapers.com/image/?clipping_id=14971910&fcfToken=eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJmcmVlLXZpZXctaWQiOjE5NzgxNjQ4MiwiaWF0IjoxNTcwNDc5MTMyLCJleHAiOjE1NzA1NjU1MzJ9.cDx7dUufIeoiCHJLR5opIaXLTBiC0BNvppt98YY5AYk | https://www.thoughtco.com/the-gary-michael-hilton-case-971046 | https://murderpedia.org/male.H/h/hilton-gary-michael.htm | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judy_Smith_homicide#Possible_sightings | https://unsolved.com/gallery/judy-smith/ | https://mycitypaper.com/articles/100997/cb.buncombe.shtml | https://www.news.com.au/world/north-america/the-strange-unsolved-case-of-judy-smith/news-story/b17a4452389568a863596acbe1c49364 | http://strangeco.blogspot.com/2019/01/judy-smiths-final-destination-bizarre.html | https://mountainx.com/opinion/letter-judith-smith-r-i-p/ | https://mycitypaper.com/articles/100297/cb.smith.shtml | https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/bostonglobe/obituary.aspx?n=jeffrey-m-smith&pid=3096035
Update - The Disappearance of Christian Ferguson
In Episode 75 of Trace Evidence I examined the case of nine year old Christian Ferguson who had gone missing after the SUV he had been left it was allegedly stolen. Two hours later, when the SUV was located, Christian was nowhere to be found. For many the prime suspect was Christian's own father, Dewan, who had been driving the SUV that morning.Now, some sixteen years later, charges have finally been filed and Christian will, hopefully soon, receive justice.St. Louis Post Dispatch article: https://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/disabled-boy-went-missing-years-ago-now-father-is-charged/article_b99e2726-d51f-5782-bba8-e80012be19b5.htmlWounded Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
092 - The Abduction and Murder of Christine Jessop
**This week's episode is Sponsored by Solid Gold. Visit SolidGoldPet.com/Trace for 30% off your first order.On October 3rd, 1984, nine year old Christine Jessop vanished from the streets of Queensville, Ontario. For months searchers looked everywhere, but no trace could be found. Sadly, on New Years Eve, they made the horrifying discovery of her remains.While police zeroed in on a suspect, a lot of questions were being ignored. When that suspect was officially charged, police told the public they had caught the killer. After years of legal wrangling, DNA evidence finally exonerated their suspect. A decade after Christine’s murder, the first real investigation began. However, so much time had passed and so much information had been ignored, it was almost too insurmountable to overcome.Now, thirty-five years later, Christine’s killer still walks free while a smile of his DNA is in the hands of police. Will the killer ever be caught or will Christine’s family perpetually wonder who took the beautiful nine year old from them?For more information please visit: https://www.trace-evidence.comhttps://www.patreon.com/traceevidence Social Media:https://twitter.com/TraceEvPodhttps://www.instagram.com/traceevidencepod/https://www.facebook.com/groups/traceevidencepodMusic Courtesy of: "Lost Time" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/Sources: https://climate.weather.gc.ca/climate_data/daily_data_e.html?timeframe=2&Prov=&StationID=1865&Year=1984&Month=10&Day=19&MeasTypeID=windspd | https://www.forensicmag.com/article/2005/01/evolution-dna-evidence-crime-solving-judicial-and-legislative-history | https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/128366702/christine-marion-jessop | https://www.yorkregion.com/news-story/9100395-ontario-cold-case-christine-jessop-series-garners-6-tips-for-police/ | https://www.yorkregion.com/news-story/8770748-ontario-cold-case-steady-stream-of-tips-continues-for-christine-jessop/ | https://www.websleuths.com/forums/threads/canada-christine-jessop-9-queensville-ont-3-oct-1984-2.192096/ | https://innocencecanada.com/exonerations/ | https://www.cbc.ca/archives/entry/cold-cases-christine-jessop-queensville-ont-1984 | https://truecrimediva.com/who-killed-christine-jessop-in-1984/ | https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2014/10/02/christine_jessop_killing_10_things_that_were_learned_from_the_case.html | http://kidnappingmurderandmayhem.blogspot.com/2010/03/murder-of-christine-jessop.html | http://netk.net.au/Canada/Morin29.asp | https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/trail-to-christines-killer-20-years-old-and-cold/article18273957/ | https://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/guy-paul-morin-case | https://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/morin-inquiry-revelations | http://archive.macleans.ca/article/1993/1/18/morin-fights-back
