In 1976 Concord, NC, a man broke into the home of a prominent white widow and violently beat and raped her. Ronnie Long, a 20-year-old black man, was given consecutive life sentences for rape and burglary. In a mostly segregated town, Ronnie was convicted by an all white jury, with no evidence slinking him to the crime, an alibi, and only a shaky witness ID from the survivor. Since then, it was revealed that the prosecution witheld exculpatory evidence for Ronnie. There is also DNA evidence Ronnie is trying to get tested to prove who the real attacker was. Ronnie, now 64, has spent 44 years in prison; however, major updates happened during this case while we were reporting it.

6: The Disappearance of Maura Murray (S1 E6)
3532
The disappearance of Maura Murray is one of the most baffling—and certainly the most famous—missing persons case of our time. The details are at once specific and maddeningly confusing: On the afternoon of February 9, 2004 the 21-year old college student got in her car and drove north to New Hampshire. She didn’t tell anyone what her plans were or where she was headed. At 7:27 PM, Faith Westman, a resident of Haverhill, NH called police and stated that there had been an accident near her home and that a car was stuck in a ditch.  The car was Maura’s. Another neighbor spoke to her to see if she needed help before he went home to call the police. And when the police showed up 10 minutes later, Maura was gone. Nobody has heard from her since.  FAM!!! Patrick is going live on our Instagram page WITH MAURA’S SISTER JULIE!! It’s happening Thursday 6/25 at 6pm ET.

5: The Disappearance of Lee Cutler (S1 E5)
3253
This one truly haunts Patrick's nightmares. Honestly. WHERE. THE HELL. IS HE? 18 Year old Lee Cutler was last seen on October 20, 2007. He spent the night before at a friend's house and was dropped off at his home at 10 am that morning. He was scheduled to work at a clothing store at the local mall at noon. But he never showed up. A  day later, his car was found about 200 miles away. A makeshift campsite was found in the woods close by. His family identified a few items found at the campsite as his, so they knew Lee had been there. Searchers also found a note to Lee's mother and his clothes and wallet on a rock near a close by river. His mother insists Lee wasn't suicidal, and local authorities concur that if Lee had gone into the woods to harm himself, they would have found him. SO WHERE IS LEE CUTLER? Is he out there somewhere living under the radar? Did he flee to a foreign country? Or is something more nefarious at play?
