On Thursday February 19th 2015, Becky Watts, a 16 year old from Bristol, England, went missing from her family home without a trace. Her father put out appeal after appeal, begging for his daughter to come home. Unfortunately for her family, Becky was closer than they could have ever imagined.

This episode takes a deep dive into Becky’s life growing up and the relationship she had with her family. We discuss the events that occurred around her death, how her family coped during the investigation into her disappearance and how they coped with the subsequent trial that followed.
