Episode 1: On June 7 of 1992 three women went missing from a single-family home in the Missouri Ozarks. Stacy McCall and Suzie Streeter who, along with Suzie’s mother, Sherrill Levitt, completely vanished in the early hours of the girls’ graduation night. They’ve been missing ever since. At the scene, there is no trace of a body and there is no DNA. There is no noise or disturbance. The only thing that’s even slightly amiss is a br...

Episode 2: We dig into the details of the girls’ graduation night—a night that was filled with excitement and promise, until it wasn’t. What exactly happened that night? We look at a timeline of events and talk to the friends who arrived at the house at 1717 Delmar Street; those who could possibly have found the one piece of evidence in the case. We speak with officer Rick Bookout, the first to arrive on the scene the next evening—...

Episode 3: Who took Suzie, Sherrill, and Stacy—and more importantly, why? In this episode, we join the town as they dive into a desperate search, on foot and even horseback, through the deep and dark lakes of the Ozarks. We look to find an answer to the question: what could have happened between 2:15 AM on June 7th and 9AM the following morning?  We look to the scene of the crime, and venture inside of the house on 1717 Delmar, in ...

In episode four of the Springfield Three, we start to delve into the leading theories that emerge. We’ll talk about a group of men who were arrested for stealing gold fillings out of corpses’ mouths in a local cemetery—one of whom was dating Suzie. We’ll talk about a boy who tells the haunting story of seeing the women in what locals called “The Girl Scout Camp.” It’s a story that would haunt him for the rest of his life. We’ll tal...

In episode five of The Springfield Three, we look at some of the potential suspects that emerge in this case. We talk about Steve Garrison, who is serving 40 years in prison for raping, sodomizing, and terrorizing a female college student in Springfield, Missouri in the summer of 1993, just a year after the three women went missing. There’s Larry DeWayne Hall, a serial killer and Civil War buff who traveled to the area often. Also,...

On episode six of the Springfield Three we uncover what went wrong in the investigation. To be perfectly clear, there are a lot of folks in Springfield’s law enforcement that want nothing more than to solve this case. But after a year of research, it seems to me that just about everyone points to one key person who could have possibly failed this case. I speak with him on this episode. And then there’s the scene of the disappearanc...

In episode seven of The Springfield Three, we dive into questions that remain. Because, really, there are so many questions. First and maybe most importantly, why and who would want to do this to Stacy, Suzie, and Sherrill? How did the perpetrator manage to get three healthy women out of the house with very little, if no, sign of struggle? How did three women just disappear? I’ll talk with local law enforcement and journalists to g...

In episode eighth and final episode of The Springfield Three, we look at Springfield now--nearly 30 years after the disappearance of Stacy, Suzie, and Sherrill, and I work to unpack how this has affected an entire community. These were three women, beloved by so many, that had so much in front of them. And there is a common narrative in this case. It kept coming up. In fact, I’d find that in almost every interview that I conducted,...

It’s obvious that the police had a lot of involvement in this case, and still do. In this bonus episode I explore why they won't talk to me. I chat with a former Springfield journalist who had close ties to Terry Knowles and The Springfield PD, and talk to Bartt Streeter about his experience with the SPD. I hear about some interesting examples of the spirit of the SPD at the time, and try to uncover the reason behind why they w...

Since The Springfield Three came out last May, new tips and theories have come pouring in. In this first bonus episode, we reveal some of these new tips and some possible new theories, particularly regarding Robert Craig Cox. We spoke with a woman who knew Robert Craig Cox all those years ago, when he was more commonly known as “Bob.” She tells us what he was like back in 1992, and shares an eerie discovery she made in her attic. W...

In the second bonus episode we finally speak with Bartt Streeter, the son of Sherill Levitt and brother of Suzie Streeter. Bartt rarely speaks to the media, but in this episode he bares it all. He tells us about growing up with his mother and sister and about the moment he found out they were missing. He gives us a clue about who Sherill was speaking to the night of the disappearance and describes what it was like to be a suspect i...
