The Red Croc

The Red Croc

By What's the Story? Sounds

This episode brings us to India, to the Mumbai home of a well heeled family of four and a botched kidnapping attempt that resulted in the death of a thirteen year old boy. Jitendra, the patriarch, worked in the diamond trade and made very good money. Even so, when he received a call at work one day, telling him that his son Adit had been abducted and was now being held for ransom, he was convinced it was a joke at first. Tragically, the mysterious voice on the other end of the phone was telling the truth. Jitendra didn’t know it yet…but he would one day learn the identity of his son’s killer and the answer came via the most unexpected source…a bright red pair of Crocs.
