Season 1: The Disappearance of Susan Osborne & Evan Chartrand

Susan & Jerry

 

On Memorial Day in 2017, a mother and her son vanished from their home in the rural Alabama community of Holtville.  Susan Osborne and Evan Chartrand haven't been seen or heard from since and their bodies have not been found. 2 months passed before their disappearance was reported to police.  Susan's husband, Jerry, told police that Susan left him for another man but as police began investigating, they discovered he'd been keeping some big secrets and Susan’s best friend had proof.  Did her Jerry's secrets lead to the disappearance of Susan & Evan?  What happened to them?  These are the questions we explore in season one of Secrets True Crime, a serial podcast. We take a close look into the lives of Susan and Evan, speak with their family members, friends, teachers, neighbors, the sheriff and investigators assigned to their case.
