Episode 32: The Constant

Updated: Jun 28


On the afternoon of March 11th, 1987, Kimberley Kersey walked home from school like she had done many times before, but this time, she would never be seen again. Today, Emily will talk about the mysterious and frustrating case of Kimberly Kersey, the suspects police looked at, and she might even share a suspect of her own. Joining us on the episode are Kimberley’s sister Kristen Kersey and former detective Lindsay Arnold to help understand what could have happened to Kim.
