A Monster in the Neighborhood: The Abduction of Jessica Ridgeway

In Episode 78

On October 5th, 2012, Sarah Ridgeway called 911 to report her 10 year-old daughter, Jessica, missing. Jessica had left her home at 8:25am that morning to walk to school. At 10:11am, the school left a message on Sarah Ridgeway’s cell phone to tell her that Jessica never arrived. But Sarah, who worked the overnight shift, didn’t hear the voicemail until 4pm. The town of Westminster, Colorado, looked for Jessica’s abductor for 18 days until the mother of a local teen called police to turn in her 17 year-old son for the murder of Jessica. What we would find out about the kidnapping and murder of Jessica would shock and disturb everyone who heard about it. Join us at the quiet end as we explore the mind of a monster whose depraved actions could never have been predicted…or could they?

  • (P.S. Dick, Uinta is pronounced “you-INN-tah”; just insert the “inn” syllable between the U and the tah in “Utah.” Another tough one here is Tooele, “too-ill-ah”.)

  • I’ve clicked on the title “A Husband’s Rage; the murder of Rachel O’Reilly,” and when I click the play button, Susan Smith’s case begins. This happened on another older episode that I’d hoped to listen to.
    Perhaps when you have time you could check it out and make sure the older titles are matched up with the correct content? I’d appreciate it, now that I’m finally a TIE-GRABBER, I want to watch every episode I’ve missed!
