The Trail Went Cold – Episode 119 – Lindsey Baum

June 26, 2009. McCleary, Washington. After stopping by a friend’s house, 10-year old Lindsey Baum leaves to walk home. Even though her trip should have only taken ten minutes, Lindsey never arrives and is soon reported missing, but a massive search effort fails to turn up any trace of her. Eight years later, skeletal remains are discovered in a remote area 150 miles away and DNA testing eventually matches them to Lindsey. While the investigation turns up a couple of persons of interest, including two local residents who provided false information about their alibis on the night Lindsey went missing, no one has ever been charged with her murder. On this week’s episode of “The Trail Went Cold”, we chronicle one of the most heavily discussed unsolved missing children’s cases of the past decade.
