"How do I explain getting rid of a body?"

On 19 June 2001, 25-year-old Shelton Sanders disappeared en route to his family's home in Rembert, South Carolina. Shelton, who lived with his family, worked and went to school in Columbia, and had spent the evening with his friends, planning a bachelor party.

In the immediate aftermath of Shelton's disappearance, it became clear that an individual that had been with Shelton that evening was the primary suspect. But despite him eventually standing trial for Shelton's murder, questions remain unanswered twenty years later...

Special thanks to Wilveria Sanders, Shelton's sister, for agreeing to speak with me for this episode. If you would like to learn more about Shelton's case and show your support, please follow along at the social media links below:
