Episode 26: Bless Our Ann

Updated: 4 days ago

It was a stormy summer night in 1961. The family dog barked and the children were restless. By the next morning, 8 year old Ann Marie Burr was nowhere to be found. In this episode, Alisha tells Emily the riveting tale of a missing child from Tacoma, Washington and how her disappearance could now be connected to one of the most notorious serial killers in American history. Best-Selling author Rebecca Morris joins Murder in the Rain to talk about her research on this story and her book, Ted and Ann: The Mystery of a Missing Child and Her Neighbor Ted Bundy.
