159: Unsolved Mysteries Ep 4: No Ride Home
On April 3, 2004, 23 year old Alonzo Brooks and 3 friends drove to a party in La Cygne, Kansas--about 50 miles from where they lived in Garner Kansas. It would later be said that Alonzo was the only black person at the party, and though by all accounts he was having fun, racial slurs had been directed at him. Later that night, Alonzo's three friends left the party, unknowingly stranding him there. When Alonzo didn't show up at home, the police eventually got involved and did search of the area near the party, but didn't find him. A month later, when the family was allowed to do their own search, they found Alonzo's body within minutes--and just behind the house where he was last seen. YOU GUYS WE LAUNCHED A NEW PODCAST!!

Khiara Henry
In July of 2019, 23-year-old Khiara Henry was visiting Hawaii, enjoying a leisure trip by herself. An avid traveler and accomplished athlete, Khiara joined several tour groups for hikes and sightseeing on her vacation. On July 21, 2019, Khiara rented a car from the Kahului airport. The last confirmed sighting of Khiara was on surveillance footage at the rental agency. Less than a week later, an employee of the rental car company contacted Khiara's sister to let her know that the vehicle was found abandoned in a state park. No one has seen Khiara Henry since. This is a story with many questions and unconfirmed sightings, but none of the leads they have received have led to finding Khiara. If you have any information about the disappearance of Khiara Henry, please call the Maui County Police Department at 808-244-6400. You can follow Khiara's case on social media at Find Khiara Henry.
