Although Ed Dentzel released the podcast on I think Tuesday, I didn’t mention it on my blog till today cause I wanted to listen to the whole thing. (Why that was, I don’t know; I’d heard the whole thing already, when I gave the interview in the first place.) Well, Michael and his parents and I listened to it all this afternoon and it turned out great. I wish I hadn’t talked so fast though. My apologies if people have trouble understanding me.
The entire podcast — the introduction, interview and after-interview statement — is 1 hour and 12 minutes long. And I would recommend you guys turn up your volumes a bit.
It’s on Podomatic and on Stitcher and on iTunes.
This week’s Flashback Friday case is Edith Irene Bonham, a 77-year-old woman missing since October 8, 1979. She disappeared from Monrovia, California, a mid-sized city in the San Gabriel Valley.
Like the last Flashback Friday case, a gentleman named Gary Wayne Dover, I don’t have much on Edith. In fact I have even less about her disappearance than I do about Gary’s. There’s no word if she had Alzheimer’s or dementia or any other health problems.
I ran her case through internet news archives and did find one 1980 article that said a “clairvoyant” claimed her body was buried in the desert. The article didn’t say much about the actual details of her disappearance, but there was a quote from the cops saying her disappearance was out of character and they didn’t think she was missing by choice.
If Edith was alive today she’d be 104. My guess is she died long ago. Like, 37 years ago.
