    So as a foster parent we are protected! We do a very hard job and need to be kept safe!

    John Lordan did an episode on him two years back https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PEw2bgukFA I don't recall any details on this one but the Missing 411 parallels are almost never mentioned in comparison with people theorizing on a single perp or unsub, like a family member, which is often unintentional misdirection I've read the first three books in the 411 series, and for anybody that hasn't, you owe it to yourself if you are to ever have any hope of understanding some of these baffling cases As far as US cases are concerned, at minimum the FBI has a large database of 'unsolveable' disappearances, the details of which we are not privy to, such as the Stacy Ann Arras case. They know damn well (even some agents, one of whom committed suicide after investigating some of these cases) that there's an untouchable group or force of some sort, especially in the national parks, that is systematically taking people for as yet unknown reasons, and they aren't letting the public know, a crime in and of itself.

    I think that if he was abducted, whoever took him had been watching that house and yard for a while. I do think it was a crime of oppurtunity, but I don’t think it was in the sense that someone drove by, saw a kid alone, and just got out of the car and grabbed him. If the person didn’t know that the sister was preoccupied, the mother and grandmother were the only people inside, and that they were sitting somewhere William was not visible to them, I don’t think he would have done it. A random passerby would probably assume that an adult was somewhere inside, keeping an eye on a young child. Maybe they were getting up periodically to check on him, or sitting somewhere within the home where they were able to watch him. They wouldn’t know who else might be in a different part of the yard, ready to come around the corner at any moment. In my opinion, it would have to be someone who lived in the neighborhood or was staying somewhere in the neighborhood. Basically what I’m saying is that to take advantage of the situation, you would have to know what the situation actually was, and some random person wouldn’t have.

    For some reason the audio on Stitcher continues to be an issue. I apologize and I beg you to hang in there. Other platforms are not experiencing this issue and we have not changed how we do things here in the garage. So it's a mystery but the issue is on the Stitcher side of things. The Captain has been working with them to correct this. Thanks for the continued support. Cheers Nic

    When my son was young (at the time of Adam Walsh) I would have thought abduction immediately. I don’t think that is unusual.

    Only half way through Part 2 but something in the interview put me on alert. The foster mother changes tense when answering what happened when she first realized he was missing. She switches from past tense, “I was in the kitchen”, to present tense, “I’m standing in the backyard, I look out and he’s not there.” This is a pretty classic way to tell if someone is lying. If you search on YouTube there are some videos of people telling 3 stories, one of which is a lie, and the lie is almost always told in inconsistent tense. Another suspicious example is Jay Wilds: In his interview with the intercept he switches to present tense whenever he’s describing experiences that he’s lied about time and time again.

    A disappearance of anyone is disturbing but one of a child is way beyond disturbing. Soul crushing. Poor baby!

    Disturbing. I must look into Missing 411. There is something similar going on in my area right now. A 4 year old has been missing for 3-4 weeks. Disappeared from a remote area. If local LE/FBI have any leads, they aren’t sharing,

    I love you guys and your podcast but I did find this episode SUPER uneventful. It was entirely based on speculation and theories and zero evidence. I think a better topic with more twists and turns, or even a shred of evidence could have been chosen personally.

    Yeah, I'm side-eyeing the foster parents, seems like the chances a random would come upon the kid at just the right time are very, very low. The washing machine guy has higher chances of being the abductor but still seems pretty flimsy.

    Great coverage on this case, as with all cases. I'm praying for you guys. It wears on us listeners just hearing about it, I can't imagine the toll researching and reporting on these tough cases takes on you guys.

[/quote] I have to agree with Bonnie, Im 25 and when ever I get a voicemail from my mother her first assumption is " I'm kidnapped in a basement" when i don't answer her phone calls. Also, big fan of you guys Im constantly raving to my friends to listen to you guys. But sadly this one isnt up to par starting to miss the old TCG like i miss the old Kanye.

    I’m about halfway through and this is an incredibly sad story, I can’t imagine how horrible it would be to not have any answers. I also just wanted to mention that I’m a foster parent and our info is protected, as it should be! When children are placed out of their home and away from their bio family emotions run very high.
