A podcast series produced by law enforcement officials aims to crack unsolved cases, including the recent mysterious disappearance of two Florida women.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has created eight episodes for the first season of their podcast, titled "Unfinished Business.” Among the other cases that they investigate on the audio show is the disappearance of 18-year-old Bonnie Lee Dages and her son Jeremy, who vanished after a trip to a Brandon, Florida shopping center in 1993.
Reyes-Diaz, 23, vanished on Jan. 18, 2020, after tucking two of her kids into bed. The mother of three then stepped outside her Tampa home and has not been seen since. Her husband found her car outside of her home with some of her personal belongings still inside.
Taylor, 28, vanished on Feb. 6, 2020, after she left her home in Plant City that afternoon. That same day, her car was found abandoned and still running, parked on railroad tracks.
Police have not announced if they suspect foul play in either missing person case, and they have not found any connection between the two disappearances. However, the families of the missing women have pointed out that there are parallels, People reported.
"I wanted to create a different avenue to reach people to hopefully bring closure to the victims' families and friends," Sheriff Chad Chronister told Oxygen.com over email on Friday. "My wish is that someone will come forward after listening to an episode with information that will lead us to answers.”
Other cases covered in the podcast date back as far as the 1970s, and include interviews with law enforcement, as well as with relatives of victims and missing persons.
“Some of these cases have been unsolved for decades,” Chronister said. “I'd like to encourage anyone who may have been too scared to come forward years ago to do so now."
Every episode is available on Apple Podcast, Spotify, Google Podcast, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, and the sheriff’s department’s website. The department told Oxygen.com that their podcast has been downloaded over 6,300 times.
Anyone with information on any of the cases mentioned is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
