He was known as “Mr. Apology.” As thousands of callers flooded the line, confessing to everything from shoplifting to infidelity, drug dealing to murder, Mr. Apology realized he couldn’t just listen. He had to do something, even if it meant risking everything. From Wondery the makers of Dr. Death and The Shrink Next Door, comes a story about empathy, deception and obsession.

145 - The Disappearance of Robin Trivisonno
***Sponsored by: BetterHelp. Visit BetterHelp.com/Trace to save 10% today! BestFiends! Download today on the Apple App Store or Google Play!*** In the early morning hours of Monday, January 20th, 1997, twenty-eight year old Robin Trivisonno was looking for a ride. Asking around to friends in the bar she previously worked at, no one was able to help. Then a mysterious man approached and the two walked out together. Neither has ever been seen again. Investigators faced a tough case; few clues, no major leads and their main person of interest was unidentified. While witnesses were able to give extremely detailed descriptions, no one knew his name, where he was from or what he was driving. The case went cold almost immediately. After four long months, several pieces of evidence were found in an unexpected place leading investigators to wonder if they had been there all along or if Robin's abductor might have planted them. Twenty-four years later, family and investigators are still hoping to find the truth and discover what happened to the twenty-eight year old mother of three.

The Santa Rosa Hitchhiker Murders (Part Five)
Between 1972 and 1973, at least seven women were murdered in California's Sonoma County. The discovery of three bodies in July of 1979 - after years of inactivity in this case - would bring about a new wave of speculation in the press. Despite investigators hoping that these discoveries could help provide answers for the numerous unsolved cases, all they did was end up creating even more questions. In the decades since, investigators have pondered whether this case could be connected to some of the most infamous names in all of true crime, Ted Bundy and the Zodiac among them. But nearly half-a-century later, all of these murders remain unsolved...
