A Black Guy & a Disappearance

Episode 253,   May 03, 2023, 11:30 AM

When Mike Golub’s ex-girlfriend, Shannon Floyd, asked him to pick up their son from her home, Mike had to be a little taken aback. In the years since they’d broken up, Mike had only ever been to Shannon’s home one time. Typically, Mike and Shannon did pick ups and drop offs at a neutral location. But that evening, Mike complied with Shannon’s request. He headed toward the home she shared with her husband, Chad Floyd, and was never seen or heard from again.

Then Kristin tells us a story that had first responders scratching their heads. It was April 4, 1989 when Kim Hallock told police that she and her ex-boyfriend, Chip Flynn, had been robbed and kidnapped by a Black man. She said that she and Chip had been hanging out at a park when a stranger threatened them with a gun. He ordered the two of them into Chip’s truck, then got in with them, shifting gears, steering the truck and holding a gun on them as he made his way to a citrus grove. When the man parked the truck, Chip grabbed a gun that Kim had hidden underneath a pair of jeans. With his hands tied behind his back, he shot at the man. Though first responders found Kim’s story odd, the detectives who were assigned to the case apparently didn’t.

And now for a note about our process. For each episode, Kristin reads a bunch of articles, then spits them back out in her very limited vocabulary. Brandi copies and pastes from the best sources on the web. And sometimes Wikipedia. (No shade, Wikipedia. We love you.) We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the real experts who covered these cases.
