    Nick and Captain, big thanks for so many hours of thrilling cautionary tales with a dash of humor. I just listened to this. Sad and puzzling. Isn’t about his age where psychotic episodes start occurring? It seems some sort of schizophrenia, voices telling him to do something. If it hadn’t happened before, or only mildly, maybe his mother didn’t know about it. Also, there are all sorts of weird viral challenges that kids take part of and some of them could be lethal. In that case, though, I would expect him to be documenting with pictures or video what he was doing and maybe post it somewhere or at least someone in his circle of acquaintances to know more. So, I’m leaning more towards the former.

    I’ve never been so creeped out by an episode before. There’s something so mysterious and odd about Noahs disappearance and death, that the explanation seems to be out of this world.

    So, I wonder if this "adventure" thing he was supposed to participate in has anything to do with his disappearance. Because it sure looks like he was on his own adventure, which might have been more interesting to him than the one he needed to complete for school. What if he was on a dare or whatever where he needed to go to the storm drain on his own and make his way through it, in which case it would make sense for him to be naked. It still is bizarre to undress on route, unless he had a strict deadline as well (maybe until the tide made it impossible to get to the other side). Who knows? My first reaction was "drugs!" but that can be a lazy go to and there doesn't seem to be any evidence of that. Great job covering this one. These cases where somebody starts the day normally, goes somewhere where they don't appear to have any reason to go, then ends up dead or missing are the most interesting by far.

    if you are following the case I suggest you read the statement put out by our solicitor after the hearing yesterday. KRW law Belfast. it is of great importance.

    Thank you so much for being light to Noah's case. This is my town, this is my area and this very well could have been my child. This should worry every single parent on this planet the lengths that the police went to to cover this up is disgusting. Please join #NoahsArmy #JusticeForNoah #NoahWillChangeTheWorld.

    There was a video circulating with your woman crook out he back garden shouting at people searching for Noah telling people to go away she is fed up with people searching her property. Now bare in mind that the storm drain was directly outside her property and Noah was inside.

    I enjoyed your podcast ref : Noah Donohue it is definitely a mystery but in all honesty the PSNI has failed us as you are probably not aware of the information that Noah was assaulted before hand PSNI never done a neighborhood check or dropped leaflets through the doors they have been called out THE PSNI on lies yet again

    Just listened to your stream on Noah. This is case is just horrendous. So glad you have covered it, there are many odd things about it, there has until recently been a total media black out on it. Also recently just this week they are now investigating as a witness came forward regarding an assault on Noah. There has been huge support to Noahs mum , from car convoys, twitter storms to show that the lies that were fed initially will no be accepted .

    I’m guessing they’ve considered a seizure? Not all seizures are grand mal seizures. Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy starts in the teen years. It could’ve even been his first. Just a thought.

    Just to state everyone is entitled to their opinion, but if like me you have been part of #NoahsArmy and follow his Mummy's journey since his disappearance and death you will understand that Noah💙 was a loving confident young man with his whole life ahead of him, also he had a special bond with his mum, so therefore I believe that what happened him was NOT self inflicted and that there has been a wall of silence around his story from day 1, until this week when it emerged a witness came forward to state that Noah 💙 had been assaulted, so therefore I totally understand why his mum Fiona wants answers and we all know that a parents instinct is always right, so hopefully Fiona will get the answers she needs.

    Curious to find out if those locked ones were checked for fingerprints to see if he tried getting in or just knew the one was already unlocked.

    I don’t know if it is relevant to this case but it sounds to me like he could have been on this “adventure” and perhaps just been worn out and experiencing some physical distress due his activities and I can see a number of reasons why he might’ve removed his clothes, number one just to make it easier to swim but also I have read that when someone becomes hypothermic from the cold their body can feel like it is overheating. I only bring this up because there was a case of a woman who was found nude and deceased on a biking trail near Ashland, OR around 2009. I don’t remember all of the details but I recall that initially people thought she had been assaulted but later it was determined she had some mental break and went out in the cold at night and as she died from exposure she removed her own clothes as when one experiences the extremes of hypothermia it will feel as if the body is on fire. I am no MD so this is just speculation but I don’t think anyone has mentioned anything like that yet. I hesitate to even bring it up because if there is some kind of cover-up this seems like it would be a handy excuse for the cover-uppers... I am so sorry and I hope the truth comes out about Noah’s ordeal, what a terrifying and terrible thing for him and his family and thank you for bringing more awareness to this case

    This case reminds me of the Elisa Lam case here in Los Angeles. She was a diagnosed bipolar. She had very similar strange behavior and ended up naked in a water tank on the roof of her hotel. A lot of parallels to this case and I agree with John - he may have had a psychotic break. Just because he hadn’t had one already doesn’t mean his first led to this tragedy.

    I had not heard it mentioned, do we know if there was a Covid test done on him? As many people don’t show all signs he may have been positive. More and more crazy symptoms have been reported like the burning skin feeling, dementia, hallucinations and confusion. And as a teenager and wanting to participate in the outing with his friends he may have been hiding feeling sick. Just a thought...

    Hos behaviour sounds like he could have ingested Datura? I see it grows in Nth Ireland. We had a spate of cases here in the late 90's and one sympton is the victim feels they're overheating and will walk into the sea to cool down, drowning as they go. It was a "cool thing" here for a brief period and involved young men daring each other to take the stuff. He may have taken it accidently?

    I believe I´ve read some piece of fiction where the protagonist throws away his clothes, one at a time, to delay some chasing predator, and reaches safety in his cabin mostly naked... I don't think it would work very well in practice, but maybe Noah, in some kind of delusional state, was thinking and acting along this line? I still wonder, though, if he knew about the unlocked drain beforehand? It seems pretty much as he was heading straight for it! Great pod, Nic & Captain! I enjoy every episode!

    So mysterious, a few people on here saying racially motivated but it sounds more likely to be a suicide. Hope his family get the answers they need. Side note, I'm sure I heard Edinburgh mentioned. For us it's more like Edinborough pronounced Edinbruh rather than Edinburg/Edinberg.

    This case reminds me of Elisa Lam, odd behavior followed by a drowning. In both situations Lisa and Noah seemed to be drawn to water or maybe this was just a coincidence. I just wonder if this is due to a psychological breakdown or chemical reaction to ingesting something.

    Wgat about the friends that was supposed to help him so the group activity, did anyone question them to see what is was about. Maybe it was supposed to be something like a “rescue mission” that went horribly wrong. Or what if one of his friends were jealous of him and purposely let it go wrong. Like I feel like he have to have help placing his clothing around and the fact that he’s seen when needed to be and not seen well you know..... just a theory

    Background- Police Detective and Officer Patrol Officer for 15yrs. I unfortunately guessed what was going to happen as this story played out... well besides the sewage tunnel part. I work in Northern Indiana right on Lake Michigan bordering the Indiana Dunes National Park and along 2 major Interstates, 30 miles from Chicago. So all of that being said a very busy and heavy tourist area especially in the summer. I have observed this behavior probably about a dozen times over the past 5 years. It all had to do with newer synthetic street drugs. A majority of those cases were people under the age of 18 and identical behavior, the become delusional and paranoid, start to strip their clothes and look for somewhere to cool down... we have had people go into walk-in coolers at gas stations lie down and try to hide them selves with pallets of drinks, climb into the big Ice Chest out side of gas stations, dive into drainage ponds in 40degree weather . These were all tourist who for whatever reason were camping at the National Park and took drugs and ended up at our major business district. In the most extrem case we had a 16yo in near freezing weather run through a sliding glass window of a radom house 2 miles from his in the middle of the night causing injuries the nearly killed him. Most of them have no idea what they did after they “come down” or the next day. Not saying this is the case here but it is striking similar. I would really like to see the toxicology report and wonder if there were detailed interviews done with his friends he was going to meet that day. Maybe by the slight chance they were going to experiment with something during their “adventure”. Keep up the great work guys!

    I dont believe Noah knew that street was a cul-de-sac as most people not from the area wouldnt know that. I dont believe he knew were that storm drain was either. I have lived in the area all my life and knew of it as a child but children nowadays do not know of it as it is no longer easy to get to. You have to either climb over someone's garden wall or through deep hedges/bushes from the inside of a park. Anyone new to park would have no idea where it was and even with instruction would have trouble finding it. No children from the area hang out there. I have always found it strange that he was able to access it as it was always padlocked when we were kids. I also find it strange police placed no emphasis on the fact Noah entered Borougham Street with no bag. This was known to police very early on although from news reports one would assume the missing backpack would be found in and around the Shore Rd area. I believe had greater emphasis been placed on the fact he arrived in the Shore Rd area with no bag that a much better search operation would have been carried out in the city centre which is now where it is believed Noah was assaulted. I also find it hard to believe that the career criminal who had his bag just happened to find it. With 194 previous convictions I doubt that very much. I am starting to think it may be plausible that he was made to take drugs against his will in the city centre, maybe injected with something. There are alot of heroin users on the streets. Like the one who 'found' his bag. This may explain him falling from bike, removing clothing and entering storm drain. This kid did not do this intentionally or in his right state of mind. He was a very smart and loving kid as can be heard from all who knew him. He would never have done anything so stupid or hurtful to those he loved. It was not suicide. It was not intentional. The truth will come out. I just hope whoever was responsible is brought to justice.

    As I listened to the podcast we hear how smart and driven this young man was. I can also hear how hateful some kids his age are, with smart kids that don’t act like “normal” (Nic you can see my air quotes 😊) Some boys can be so cruel at that age. My first thought was he was bullied or at least dared into this situation. It’s clear that he had plans for a school assignment, and with all of his achievements we can conclude he wouldn’t purposely not participate. Something/Someone made him feel like he had to do this crazy thing or suffer the consequences. Maybe there was drugs involved which completely made it more heightened and scary. Many boys at this age are starting to try new things. Lord knows the drinking and drugs (pot) that I saw the guys in our group doing at 14 and 15. No young kid ever really think bad things will happen. Maybe he was told to leave his bag at a certain place and then given instructions to take off a piece at a time until he was naked. Who is to say that there wasn’t someone along the way watching this happen. We have all heard, read and seen what horrible kids can do. As a mom I can only imagine what Fiona is going through. I pray for answers and justice. It’s hard to lose a child but it’s even harder under such crazy circumstances. 💙 Donohoe Family Love and Prayers for you.

    Just food for thought.... After listening to Noah's case this weekend, it is very similar to an episode my daughter experienced. Recently, we were called by a neighbor saying my daughter was found five blocks away, in a snowstorm, completely naked and holding a hairbrush. She is an absolutely normal girl with the exception she has Epilepsy. After a seizure she is very confused and does some wacky things. For instance, her brain can tell her how to unlock a door or undress, but at the same time she has no idea who she is or where she is at. Psychosis can happen after a seizure or a cluster of seizures. "The postictal state is the altered state of consciousness after an epileptic seizure. It usually lasts between 5 and 30 minutes, but sometimes longer in the case of larger or more severe seizures, and is characterized by drowsiness, confusion, nausea, hypertension, headache or migraine, psychosis and other disorienting symptoms." Also, her seizures started in her early teens with focal (absence) seizures. She would often fall off a bike (similar to Noah) or trip and fall. Focal seizures are very quick. Often parents can miss the signs of these seizures and think the child is simply daydreaming or zoned out. Focal seizures can sometimes trigger bigger seizures. I believe Noah had a medical emergency and was disoriented and confused. I pray the parents can find some closure.
