One Thursday night in 1995, 34 year old Robert Higgins went out with friends in Kirkliston in Scotland. Robert worked at a demanding job Monday to Thursday and enjoyed a weekend out. One thing that Robert always did however was let his family know where has; especially his Mum who he lived with.

Strangely Robert had been seen in many places that weekend but just not in any of his usual locals...

    Richey Edwards- 4 Year Bonus episode

    26:02

    Thank you for supporting the podcast for 4 years! Patrons chose this bonus episode for you to hear on the anniversary of the release of the first ever Unseen Episode.On the 1st of February 1995, lyricist and frontman of the Welsh band Manic Street Preachers left his London hotel in his car and simply vanished without a trace. His car was later found however this just created more questions about what had happened. Richey was well known and the band had a huge fan base. His personality and his open discussion of mental health struggles made him a well loved figure. Therefore his disappearance has resulted in huge amounts of speculation and theory. This episode is dedicated to Richey and his family who still search for answers.

    Penelope Mogano

    20:38

    On the 18th of January 1954, 44 year old Mother of two Penelope Mogano was found murdered in her own home in Coventry by her husband and son. Her injuries were extensive and the perpetrator had exerted a huge amount of force in the attack. The window of when this could have happened was at most 2 hours and no one could think of any reason why someone would have wanted to kill Penelope. She was well liked and had no enemies. Theories swirled including a scam artist, a random maniac or even her husband. Penelope's case is sadly still unsolved.

Corrie was told to leave Flex nightclub that night and became separated from his friends. He went to a local takeaway and had a nap for a few hours outside a local shop. He was last spotted on CCTV heading into an area called the Horseshoe where several bins were located. Corrie never left this area and wasn't spotted on CCTV again.

    Ian Murray Erskine

    23:05

    On the 25th of March 1990, two men in a boat on the River Cam in Cambridgeshire spotted a black plastic bag floating down the river. They went to get a closer look and found the horrifying sight of a decomposing male body inside. Dental records identified the victim as 44 year old Ian Murray Erskine who had been missing from his Notting Hill home since the previous December. The investigation would uncover a complicated series of events after his disappearance and the police would be left wondering what connection this had to his murder.

    Kyle Clarke

    1:08:01

    Kyle Clarke was just 27 when he was killed on the night of January 10th 2017. He had been getting petrol at a petrol station in Bristol when an altercation occurred between him and a garage worker. Kyle was tragically ran over on the forecourt by the passenger in the car and died at the scene. The circumstances however of what truly occurred that night are very different to this initial account and cast doubt on whether 'a citizens arrest' was really the reason behind what happened. For this episode I spoke to Jen Jarvie who is working with Kyle's Mum Helen to raise awareness of Kyle's case and to get him the proper justice he deserves. Jen also tells us about the awful attack on Helen that shaped Kyle's childhood. Thank you to Helen and Jen for sharing this story with me.Important resources to accompany this episode: PLEASE WATCH the CCTV of the events at the petrol station as discussed in the episode: https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/tragic-death-kyle-clarke-fuel-178468Other articles about Kyle's case: https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/tragic-death-kyle-clarke-fuel-178468https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/grieving-mum-keeps-dead-sons-13550438https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-40484556https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6363961/Mother-Bristol-Kyle-Clarke-run-car-2017-keeps-clothes-freezer.htmlMore on Helen's story: https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/helen-stockford-story-rape-blame-2164085The facebook page for Kyle: https://www.facebook.com/JusticeForKyleClarkeMusic by DL SoundsFollow the Unseen Podcast on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-unseen-podcast/id1318473466?uo=4Follow the Unseen Podcast on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0xWK7Mu3bTP6oziZvxrwSK?si=QxvyPkZ2TdCDscnfxyeRawFollow the Unseen Podcast on Stitcher: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/the-unseen-podcastJoin our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/unseenpodFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theunseenpodFollow us on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/theunseenpod/

    Jessie Earl and Louise Kay

    29:24

    22 year old student Jessie Earl left her bedsit in the town of Eastbourne on May the 15th 1980 and was never seen again. Her parents searched for her and contacted anyone that they could think of but she wasn't located. Sadly 9 years later, her body was recovered at Beachy Head in Eastbourne in suspicious circumstances. She was not the only young woman to go missing in the 1980's. 18 year old Louise Kay had vanished on June the 23rd 1988 and both her nor her car were ever seen again. The question is were these two connected and what really happened to them?

    22:57

    Sarah Millson worked as a housekeeper for the Bevington Brothers Leather Wholesalers which was based in Cannon Street in Central London. Sarah mostly kept to herself and didn't appear to receive many visitors. That was why it was strange on the 11th of April 1866, a stranger knocked on her door and she said she knew it was for her. After an hour her friend who was upstairs with her went down and found her dead body in the doorway. Despite the time that has elapsed Sarah's murder is still unsolved. This episode is a special listener written and researched episode and this time it comes from the fabulous Barbara so thank you so much!
