Possibly as you get older you feel some need to bring order to the world. Here I give in to that need by creating another unsolved and suspicious case list.
Some of these victims have felt that connection to street life and the challenges that comes with it. Some had been facing mental health issues and had drifted from family and friends. Others were just travelling or vanished after some family issues. We are writing as much a we can about individual cases. Here we hope to cover even more ground by linking to other established writers.
