Introducing WHAT REMAINS | Ep 1 Forensic Science Solves the Mystery of Baby Michael
For Follow the Truth listeners, episode one of What Remains, the newest podcast from WRAL Studios and Amanda Lamb. More than twenty years ago, a newborn baby was found dead inside a garbage bag on the side of the road near a military base in North Carolina. The officers working to solve his murder called him Baby Michael, named for the patron saint of police. With no leads on who the baby was, or who his mother was, the mystery turned into a cold case – another unsolved murder – but investigators never gave up on Baby Michael. Meet the incredible investigators who made it their mission to identify Baby Michael and find his killer, and learn how they tapped into an innovation in forensic science to crack a 21-year old cold case. What Remains is the new podcast from WRAL Studios where we explore the science of matching unidentified human remains to the missing and the murdered. You can find it now in this podcast app. Wondery+ listeners can listen to all episodes now, ad-free.
