Best True Crime Podcasts: Disappearances With Sarah Turney.This new true crime podcast from Spotify and Parcast sees its host Sarah Turney take a closer look at some of the most well-documented missing persons cases in history.Unlike most true crime hosts, Turney knows her subject matter all too well – her sister, Alissa, disappeared in 2001, and the case was only solved after Turney shared its details on social media two decades later (her father has since been charged with Alissa’s murder and is currently on trial) – and this gives her a unique perspective through which to explore both the details of each case and the impact these disappearances have on the people left behind.

In the first episode, Turney tells the story of Etan Patz – a six-year-old boy who was abducted on the way to the bus stop, and whose disappearance helped launch the US’ missing children movement.The Lazarus HeistBest True Crime Podcasts: The Lazarus Heist.
