Description

On this week's episode, Freya dives into the infamous kidnapping of little Charley Ross from his home in Philadelphia, just before independence day in 1874. Charley's case gained mass attention across the US and earns its place in history as the first kidnapping for ransom in the states. The case is also notorious for being the inspiration behind the phrase 'never take candy from a stranger'.

In the burning questions segment, Amy gives her insight into familial DNA and how it could be used to locate a family lineage, while Freya weighs up the pros and cons of excessive media attention on cases of kidnappings.
