Unsolved Mysteries: Body in the Bay
In this episode of You Can't Make This Up, we conclude our look at volume three of the Netflix series "Unsolved Mysteries" out now on Netflix. Host Rebecca Lavoie interviews director Robert M. Wise about his episode "Body in the Bay"
After Patrick Lee Mullins's small boat never returned from a ride on the river, search crews scoured the waters in and around Tampa Bay. Days later, his body was discovered in a shallow part of the bay, carefully tied to his own anchor…but his empty boat was recovered far out to sea. At first investigators assumed this was a straight-forward suicide, but the cause of Patrick’s death was not drowning. It was a shotgun blast to the head. “Body in the Bay” explores whether Patrick set off to take his life or whether he encountered something he shouldn’t have seen.
