In this this episode, Erinn and Ethan look at the nature and origin of several of the rumors and misconceptions that have persisted in the case, including the supposed “affair” with the UMass Men’s track coach. They also look at data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics and use it to discuss some of the common outcomes associated with both missing persons cases and stranger homicides.
