The Trail Went Cold – Episode 233 – Wallace Guidroz & Lenoria Jones

January 10, 1983. Tacoma, Washington. Two-year old Wallace Guidroz is reported missing by his father, Stanley Guidroz, who claims that he brought Wallace to a local park and last saw him in the company of an unidentified couple and a young girl. 28 years later, Stanley is charged with an unrelated murder and confesses that he accidentally killed Wallace and disposed of his body. However, since Stanley’s confession is supressed by the court, he does not go on trial for the crime. A search fails to turn up Wallace’s remains or any other corroborating evidence, creating uncertainty about what actually happened.

July 20, 1995. Tacoma, Washington. Three-year old Lenoria Jones is reported missing by her great-aunt, Berlean Williams, who claims that the girl vanished while they visited a Target department store. When investigators check the store’s security tape and find no trace of Lenoria on the surveillance footage, they begin to question Berlean’s version of events. Even though Berlean keeps changing her story, she continues to deny any involvement in Lenoria’s disappearance and there are no conclusive answers about how or why she went missing.
