    You Americans are so damn cute. I can confirm that you still have to pay at ‘public’ phones. Nic, I would pay a 2 pound cover to see that River Dance of yours if you need some extra ca$h.

    I cannot get over the groceries. It doesn't make sense that she wouldn't put them away as soon as she got inside... it makes me feel like someone was in her apartment and took her by surprise. (The plumber is looking pretty suspicious to me) This is a case I've never looked into, I'll definitely have to pick up that book. Great episode guys!

    I totally agree Megan. I am sensationally disorganised, but somehow I always manage to get my cold food straight into the fridge. On top of that, if you have ever shared a communal laundry, you never leave your clothes unattended for long periods or very bad things can happen. I think she was either followed to her flat or one of her neighbours/the plumber needs to be looked into. Sorry Captain, but I don’t think she ever made it to that pub. Very sad, she was living her best life.

    About the groceries, it sounds strange, but on the other hand, having lived in cold countries and cold apartments, it is not completely unusual to leave your groceries out of the fridge for a stretch of time. If I had been in a rush - like to go out again- I would have (and actually did a few times) just dropped the groceries bags at the door and put the food away after I returned as the food would not get spoiled. I recall hearing about this case in the past, but never dug deep into it, but this is about to change from now because the episodes (and the music, omg so good!) got me hooked (and living in Europe I am always excited to hear about cases which are close to me).

    Ireland is not the UK - different country. Freedom of movement within the EU was just being rolled out, so you could technically move to some other countries more freely but as Annie was American, she would need to use it. If she had an Irish passport, it would be different. And I'm assuming the witness at the bus stop was called 'Eimear'? this is pronounced Eemur, like femur but drop the F.

    Yeah, the groceries and laundry make it sound super sketchy. I would take a closer look at the plumber, too. I mean, even if you forgot about the groceries when you got home, you would at least see the them as you rushed out the door and put them up. It would have to be a pretty damned cold apartment for meat to not spoil when you know you are going to be gone for many hours--even if she didn't plan to go to a pub after hiking that day. As one who has forgotten wet clothes in the washer for, uh, a while, I am not quite as bothered by that, but then again, i'm not a 20 something with a good memory. When was the load started? before she left? Any neighbors that were home could have answered that question lol. if so, it seems like someone was waiting for her when she arrived. if not, maybe someone followed her back to the apartment and got her after she started the laundry, but before she could put the food up. I'm not sold on the story she got on the bus. When you say someone is missing and ask people if they saw her, people want to be helpful. they want to have info. Sometimes, they subconsciously supplant the sighting with the day they saw the person. And given that there was a week-long delay before the general public was alerted to this case, I can totally believe the "eye witnesses" didn't actually witness anything useful. As for the "vanishing triange"? That's a pretty big triangle. And the cooling off period is kind of long. I'm not convinced ANY of the cases are connected.

    Am I the only person who is not bothered at all about the groceries being out? It depends on what exactly the groceries were I guess. If there was truly meat purchased, I can see the concern, but this podcast is the only source I can find that has said there was meat. If it was baking supplies, then groceries being out makes sense. A good baker (and I assume she was good as she was being paid for her goods) knows that all ingredients need to be at the same temperature before they are combined (room temp). If she planned to go for a walk, then come back and bake, there is no reason to be alarmed by dairy products not being placed in the fridge.

    Mattie - I hear ya and you are absolutely right it totally depends on what was purchased or in the bag. The laundry does not bother me. Its seems odd that it is a communal washing machine but maybe she forgot. In my world laundry is easily forgotten. Also I only run my dryer when I am home for many reasons. Sometimes I'll leave items in the washer until I have time to run the full cycle. Regarding the groceries - we know she went to the supermarket. The reports I saw said meat and cream were amongst the contents. However I simply relying on those reports. If those reports are correct - that's a big red flag for me. Indicating something bad happened or at least something that took her away from what she was doing much earlier than what a lot of the reports state. The other item of MAJOR concern for me is the man with no alibi - the fake alibi, which we later learn was made up because he was cheating on his girlfriend. So what the F! What was the time frame of when he is unaccounted for and faking his alibi. Why did they (PI /LE) move on so quickly from this dude. From what I could he is the only one that lied about an alibi. Personally I find this guy (the liar) and the plumber to be the most questionable. Nic

    I love the Irish so I actually enjoyed John’s post. I’m sure if he and I were in a pub with a few between us a connection would be made. He might still hate the show but we would be friends. I’m sure John is a good lad. Thank you - just me- for your post! Cheers Nic

    Captain: A million thanks for pointing out that if men felt vulnerable in the same way women often do, things would be different. You are a true friend of women and a real gentleman. John from Ireland: Poor show. Good manners go a long way, all over the world.

    She left her groceries out, it just makes no sense that she would get on a bus and go hiking. It seems obvious that she never left on the bus. It is sad that the focus on her search was 20 miles from her flat. It makes no sense to follow the supposed sighting rather than the clues in her apartment.
