S3E9 What happened to Tim Dees?
41:56Tonight we speak with Natalie Long, friend of Timmy Dees who went missing after calling 911 in a panic fearing for his life. When the cops showed up less than 10 minutes later, Timmy was gone but they never looked for him but instead arrested another person at the location and left. That decision to let an arrest take priority over looking for a panicked 911 caller very well may have cost Timmy his life. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/locatingthelost/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/locatingthelost/support

I also need to let you know my brother called me approximately 2 months prior to his death and stated to me that he was going into hiding, “if something happens to him then so and so needs to be questioned by the police”. Honestly I’ve yet to take the time to write the timeline of events in which I was informed no one would take me seriously until. Thank you for your time. ~Jess Was it murder?
