Episode 59: Barbara

May is Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women awareness month. Today, I’ll be telling the story of 19 year old Barbara Whitesell; a teenager excited to start the next phase of her life whose only priorities were her friends and family. When Barbara’s body is discovered in a church’s field, those family members start to look at her friends as potential suspects. Was her friend responsible for her death or will new technology tell the truth of what happened that awful night? Find out in today’s episode, Barbara.
