Sarah Hunter was only 15 minutes late for work when her coworker called police to report her missing. But despite his swift action, Sarah’s case would go cold and stay that way for years. Decades later, an individual known to the case from the earliest days of the investigation became a prime suspect, and advanced DNA testing even led to an arrest. Yet Sarah’s murder still awaits a conclusion to this day after almost 40 years.

If you have any information relating to the unsolved homicide of Sarah Hunter, please contact Captain Scott Dunlap of the Vermont State Police Major Crime Unit. His email is [email protected]. You can also submit an anonymous tip at vsp.vermont.gov/tipsubmit, or text VTIPS to 274637.

When a 15-year-old girl snuck out one night in 1996, it was like she vanished into thin air. Police had a theory & a suspect from the earliest days of the case, but it would take over a decade to build a case strong enough for an arrest.

In a 1 month span during the winter of 1969, the city of Cambridge, Massachusetts was set on edge after 2 violent attacks on women while they slept in their beds challenged the very sense of safety residents thought they had in their own homes. Nearly 50 years later, 1 of those cases was finally solved, but the 2nd, very similar homicide is still waiting for answers. After more than 5 decades, this story is long overdue for an ending.

When investigators in Alachua County, Florida discovered the remains of 2 people among the charred ruins of a burned down shack & a letter in a nearby car that seemed to explain the entire scene, police in 2 states thought they were on the brink of closing a multiple murder case that started all the way north in New Hampshire. But as experts attempted to identify the 2 people found in that shack, doubt started to poke glaring holes in the case.

When an elderly couple was found murdered inside their Danby, Vermont home in the fall of 1989, it had residents of the small town looking over their shoulders & double-checking their door locks at night.

The double murder sat unsolved for over 30 years until 2020, when the case was reopened with the hope that new forensic DNA analysis could finally shine a light on long-concealed answers.

On the night of July 4, 1980, an evening of celebrations in Anson, Maine ended in the murder investigation of a young local mother. Tire tracks at the scene raised suspicion, but despite this, years passed without any movement in the case.

On January 1, 1988, 17-year old John Lango walked out the front door of his home in Pottsville, Pennsylvania never to return. He was treated as a runaway, but now more than 3 decades later, all signs indicate John never meant to disappear on his own. John’s case unfolded just outside the boundaries of New England. However, I’m sharing this mini-episode alongside other audiochuck shows to bring attention to unsolved missing persons cases in honor of National Missing Persons Day.

John Lango’s case remains open and active with the Pottsville Police Department. If you have any information relating to his disappearance, please contact Pottsville PD at (570) 622-1234.
