The faces of Janice Pockett, Lisa White, and Debbie Spickler appear side by side on one missing persons flier that continues to be posted around town to this day. The public and media have always grouped these cases together. Three young girls, suddenly gone. Yet that is where the similarities stop. Recently uncovered documents help clear up the misinformation that’s been reported on 13-year-old Debbie Spickler’s case for over 50 years, and reveals a whole new web of mysteries that takes us in an entirely new direction.

On Saturday, February 23rd - 2019, Jassy Correia was out celebrating her upcoming birthday at the popular Venu nightclub in Boston, MA. The following Wednesday, an alert went out that she was now officially considered a “missing person.” Family and friends hadn’t heard from her in days, and whilst Boston Police promptly posted the club’s surveillance video the night Jassy disappeared, they noticed that she was not alone. The question that collectively loomed over the city of Boston as time ran thin- was who was the man appearing on camera with Jassy, when she was last seen alive?

Introducing Family Ghosts
Listen and subscribe to Family Ghosts! Family Ghosts is a (mostly) nonfiction show where real people investigate the truth behind myths and legends that have haunted their families for generations. These aren't ghosts with clanking chains-type hauntings (mostly) - rather, they're apocryphal stories that have been repeated over and over for decades - grandmothers who turned out to be jewel smugglers, uncles who vanished without a trace, aunts who stole corpses and hid them in undisclosed locations, parents who started cults, and much, much more. In each episode of the show, someone who feels like they might understand themselves better if they could get to the bottom of one of these mysteries tries to do exactly that, in collaboration with host Sam Dingman. Sam is a storyteller whose stories have been featured on The Moth Radio Hour, WBEZ, RISK!, and Benjamen Walker's Theory of Everything, and Family Ghosts has been hailed as a critic's choice by NPR, The LA Times, Vulture, and the New York Times. Family Ghosts is a show about the presence of absent people, the long shadows they cast, and how telling their stories can help us finally step into the light. The families are real, the ghosts are (mostly) metaphorical, and the truth is always relative. Family Ghosts has just launched their fourth season with a three-episode miniseries about a woman named Kate whose father mysteriously disappears in the middle of the night in September 1987. When twelve-year-old Kate asks her family what happened, no one will tell her anything - launching her on a twenty-five year quest to figure it out on her own. Along the way, she finds temporary solace in Washington, D.C.'s emerging punk rock scene, watches as her family's story is dramatized by David Simon on primetime cable, and ultimately uncovers a shocking secret that was right under her nose the whole time. From the industrial truck farms of East Baltimore to the newsrooms of New York City to Mount St. Helens, Kate's story has all the twists and turns of a classic murder mystery, but the real journey is Kate's own attempt to understand not just what she wants to know, but why she feels like she can't rest until she knows it. If you like the episode you hear today, you can hear all three episodes in the Family Ghosts feed. The series is called A Crane in the Bay - go subscribe today!
