The Trail Went Cold – Episode 105 – Judith Hyams

September 14, 1965. Coral Gables, Florida. After leaving work, 22-year old Judith Hyams vanishes without a trace and her rental car is found abandoned in Atlanta. It turns out that Judith had become pregnant and was seeking an illegal abortion from a shady doctor, but after he is arrested, he jumps bail and disappears. 24 years later, the case is suddenly re-opened after a police captain receives a series of bizarre anonymous phone calls stating that Judith is still alive. Even after investigators receive an anonymous letter which reveals what happened to Judith, she is never found and there are a number of unanswered questions. For our first episode of 2019, “The Trail Went Cold” tackles a very odd cold case which was revived in the most unlikely fashion.
